RE: A recent heat wave has left the forest drier than usual. For @Solstice

The grass was dry and brittle below Olwyn's paws, crackling and crunching underneath her weight. Two-toned eyes shifted to face the sky, whose tempestuous clouds seemed to pass teasingly. It certainly didn't feel like it was going to rain, and by the look of the forest, her instincts were likely correct. Ah well, she'd just have to go further in search of water. Her paws surged forward with purpose, though the yearling hadn't a clue where she was headed. Perhaps that was the beauty of being alone. Home was everywhere, and nowhere at all. An audible snort vibrated the caves of her nose, amused at her own optimism. Since when was she the puddle-half-full type of girl? Speaking of puddles.. Her gaze lifted upwards once more, glaring at the rain-heavy clouds as if she could simply will them to loosen their grip. Figures.

At some point she came across a small skeleton, time-worn, and barely recognizable. It wasn't uncommon, and certainly didn't strike her as odd. But the farther she walked, the more frequent the little piles became. Another, then another, until the soft crunch of grass against her paws eventually gave way to the soft clanking of bone as it shifted below her. Perhaps there was something in the water, or air that had caused this mass death? Or someone had a habit of saving their bones? Either way, it was certainly interesting.

Slipping away from her parents was easy enough, even if the tether around her core seemed to tighten the longer she tested her bounds. Sometimes, she wished she had the strength to just break away like her sister had... but she couldn't abandon her mother, and she felt she still had much to prove to her father.

The oppressive heat had pushed the girl into the deeper section of woods, where she supposed fog might swirl about her legs if the moisture existed among the brittle blades of grass and dried out leaves that crackled and crunched underfoot. She might not have even turned to glance in the direction of the other wolf if it hadn't been for the audible clunking of something other than foliage underfoot. When her eyes finally fell on the other wolf, she could hardly believe her luck. "I wondered when you'd catch up..." There was a warmth to her smile that she dare not show in front of their parents. They wouldn't approve.

A crack, or crunch forced Owl's ear to swivel backwards, and her dark crown followed. Wildly, her eyes flickered in search of the noise, now accompanied by a voice. There was a single sickening moment of fear that etched itself into the lines of her brow, but when her mismatched gaze finally landed on Soul, there was only warmth. "Wasn't sure that I would." How long had it been now? Too long? Not long enough? "Are you alone?" The affection in her companion's voice should have been enough to quell the suspicious knot in her stomach, but Olwyn still had to ask. Just in case. Just because.
