MANON FONTAINE



The sun shines gladly upon a belly of dusted gold, the dim colour more pronounced by the illumination. If she had been born one of the feline kind, she is sure she would be purring right this second. Front paws curled delicately towards herself, she stretches, enjoying the warmth on her stomach.

Humming softly as her body relaxes, her ears flicker every so once in a while, listening out for anything in her surround. Being on her back; it's a vulnerable position and although the forest had done well in serving as her earthly guardian, she knows that it can only do so much.

She recalls recently the usurpation of the Pines by that one pack, driving her temporarily away from her home. She never learned its name, having departed swiftly in hopes of avoiding trouble but its presence had been absolute and she couldn't go anywhere near the forest without alerting sentries.

Their reign had been short-lived, however. It hadn't been long before suddenly, for reasons unknown, their hold loosened and she found herself returning.

Their scent still lingers but not as strong as before, slowly being replaced by the ambiguous scents of wanderers and pine. The question of how passes through her mind, wondering what had happened to the pack, but it disappears as quickly when her interest is not piqued. Perhaps it will resurface some day but she hopes that it will be elsewhere.

For now, she would like to happily bathe beneath sunshine, uninterrupted by disruption and chaos.

Everything was coming together rather hastily as well. Their numbers were growing as well as their interest, lights that were once dimmed by the darkness were becoming bright more. Not all hope had been lost. He could thank not only Kylar, but Aurelia for this as well, for they were as much of the foundation as he had been. Aurelia for being strong despite her past, and Kylar—the woman who once saw no good in the world living for someone besides herself. They were good for one another, aunt and niece for they were each other's hopes and will to keep moving forward.

Soon the Pine Forest would be theirs to roam free, where security and happiness would flow like a river. Here was home, here was meant to be simple and here there would be no judgement. With a deep inhale the ebon' man moved forward, large paws imprinting the grass into the earth beneath his weight. He continued on aimlessly until the scent of another filled his nostrils, one that was not familiar.

Golden orbs scanned the forest, each step drawing him closer until his new found company was in his clear sight. "Hello," he spoke out, though his tone was not warm, it did not hold ill intentions either. From there the man waited patient, not approaching any further until he had been noticed.

"Talking."

MANON FONTAINE



When rays of sunlight hit broad leaves of trees dubbed flowering, they cast a shadow of chrome within a colour that should be green.

When rays of sunlight attempt to engulf dark needles of those named conifers, they sparkle between the gaps, a mimicry of starshine.

The maiden of the woodland deliberates. She doesn't know which one she likes better: the golden undersides of veined blades or the glimmer of summer eternal. They both seem equally as pretty to love, both a different kind of beauty to experience.

Bright emeralds shine with contemplation as they stare at the winking luminescences above. Perhaps they aren't meant to be compared simply because they should be appreciated separately. One will never appear alongside the other simply because they do not grow on the same soil.

That makes sense, she considers, it would be right to love both.

Pleased at her conclusion, she giggles softly to herself, happy to have solved that mystery easily. No matter which season comes by, no matter where she is, there will always be something for her to admire and cherish.

A gust of wind commends her, threading its gentle encouragement through the soft fur of her belly. She smiles, delight spreading throughout her body.

Her bliss seems to be long-lasting even when she hears the "Hello" from a stranger. Barely flinching at the interruption, the voice seems to come from behind (above?) her and she tilts her head upwards to look at him.

It's a little funny to see him upside down and her smile widens slightly, giggling softly despite the vulnerable position she is in. Rolling onto her stomach, her world righting itself in the process, she takes a deep breath to calm the merry jitters. Blood rushing away from her head, she takes a moment to return herself to a more presentable demeanour.

Smiling no less sincere, she takes in the boy's dichromatic countenance and his unfamiliar scent. It's not one she has smelled in the forest before and she assumes that he is either passing through or has decided to settle.

"Hello.” She returns in her usual soft dynamic, tone welcoming and friendly. “Can I help you?”

Immediately she catches on to his presence, golden eyes watch as her head turns into an uncomfortable position it seems—gracing him with a soft smile and returning his hello. He nods in respect, her further question causing his head to sway, "not quite." He responded, taking a seat against the warmed earth. "I have been in and out of the Pines you see, and your face is not one I remember coming across." Anteros had been careful, sometimes even too careful in his learning about the area. He wanted to know all there was to know, whom had been in and out of it just as he had, and who was here to stay. The ebon' man knew the time would come where those who once called this home would have to turn from it, and while unsettling he found it best for those he promised to protect.

Anteros had scouted many places before this, none deemed as worthy. The food was plentiful, the trees provided enough shade and camouflage to keep preying eyes out. The food was plentiful, but the only problem he could see were the bears. Always the bears.

"Are you aware of the dangers that lurk here?" Certainly an unusual question, one that perhaps could have been taken in a threatening way—though that was never his intention. His mind often worked faster then his mouth, but words were never pondered over as long as they should have been. He needed to know the threats so he could therefore chase them out, as he had done to the dangers before this place.

"Talking."

He is not one of the forest, she remarks silently, the scents of her home are not as settled upon him as someone who lived here. But, she sniffs gingerly, he is very close. Nodding slowly at his observations, she watches him carefully as he takes a seat.

Pressing her lips together, she contemplates how she should respond to him. Looking over him, she doesn't think he is anyone dangerous or at least, he isn't at the moment. While she is always eager to receive company, the matters of her privacy are often ones that she keeps tightly secured.

Lashes fluttering slightly as she deliberates, she replies, providing a cautious answer. “I...often keep to myself." She says truthfully. "I did take leave over the passing of the seasons, however. If you were here around then, it might be why we never met.”

"If not," she shrugs, her smile becoming slightly more sheepish. "Chalk it up to coincidence."

"Are you aware of the dangers that lurk here?" He asks and her brow furrows a little. She had never felt any animosity from the pines and nor had she seen any creatures in the forest specifically. Shaking her head, she murmurs, "I haven't paid it much mind actually... Most of the 'dangers' tended to be other wolves..."

Blinking in slight concern, she glances around the area as if expecting something to lurk in their surrounds. Looking back to the boy, she asks softly, almost fearfully, "Should I be worried?"
