I continued walking down my slope. The pebbles I stepped on bothered my pads, but I decided not to show it. The wind suddenly blew strong. The bangs over my right eye then covered both of my eyes. I quickly brushed them away back onto my right eye. Kate saw me walking down the slope. Her eyes lit up and she rushed up to my side. “Hi!” She exclaimed, turning around to match my direction. “Hey…” I replied back. “How did you sleep?” She asked me, warmly. “I slept fine thanks…” Ask her how she slept! Came a voice in my head. “How did you sleep?” I replied back quickly. “I slept great!” She replied, smiling ear to ear. “You wouldn’t believe how Lilly and Hutch were acting… Ha! You would think she liked him! She always rushed up to him, and then she would ask these stupid questions…” She laughed. I snickered… I didn’t want to make so that I didn’t get her humor or I didn’t like her, but I did like her. In, a… Friend sort of way. She smiled at me again, upon hearing me laughing. “So, how are you?” She asked me. We had just reached the bottom of my slope. “Well, I’m good, nothing hurting at the moment…” I smiled. She nodded. Kate apparently decided to ask me something. “When our responsibilities take place, do you want to do them together today?” She sort of cringed when she asked me that. I nodded. “Sure!” I replied. I felt a huge sigh of relief coming from her. I then saw a huge group of girls. All of their eyes lit up when they saw me approaching. I didn’t even have to walk over to them.
They padded over to me. I was then bombarded by a wave of… “Hey Seth! Hey Seeeth? What’s up! Heya!” As they reached me. I nuzzled each of them, as they were my friends. They didn’t stop me, because they liked me. One of them, Jamie, pressed against my left side. Kate was on my right so no one even dared to go there. “What’s new girls?” I asked. “Well…” Came one. “I have some new news on Hutch and Lilly!” Came another. As we socialized, it attracted the attention of Humphrey. An omega… He walked over. “Hiya! What’s the hubbub about?” He asked, sitting down, his hind legs straight out so the bottom of his paws would be visible. The greeting for him wasn’t as warm. “Hey Humphrey… Hi…” I almost laughed at the difference. “So, Kate! What does your dad have planned for you today?” I asked. “Well, first, we’re tracking the caribou, then we’re going to renew the borders, and finally we’re going hunting…” “We?” Humphrey asked, obviously jealous. “Yeah! Seth and I are going to be doing our regular responsibilities together today!” That statement, changed Humphrey’s happy face to a bitter and jealous one. That statement, also aroused the group of girls crowded around me and prompted a fresh wave of exclamations.
Later that morning, after the social group, made by myself, Kate and the females, had dispersed, it was time for our daily chores. The first chore required 3 wolves. I originally wanted to call on Northrend to help but he was reluctant to do anything without his mate, so I called Eight. Whom was a newcomer to the pack... As well as a good friend to me. He was a single, brown furred wolf, whom was relatively good natured. He was strong, and lean, none in the slightest fat and was respected by the pack. We set on our way for the valley, where the caribou herd resided. Our primary source of food... The goal of this exercise was to scout out the position of the caribou herd and plan the next hunting party… Eight, Kate, and I set off.
We approached the valley. Eight began telling us about his life, earlier before he got to the pack… The birds flew overhead as if they had somewhere to go. My fur rustled in the wind. “It’s beautiful… Isn’t it Seth?” Kate asked, turning to me and smiling. “Yeah… It is…” Seth whispered. Kate wanted him to say back, Not as beautiful as you... That, did not occur… Kate had never acted like this before. She pressed against my flank. I drank in her familiar and warm scent. She always smelt good… Which was odd. In a good way. Eight was quiet, after reciting his story. I remember when he first came to the pack… He was mistreated and disrespected… I in fact was one of the wolves that mistreated him… However, We grew to be friends… The spiky hair at the top of his head was fluttering in the wind. We got to the valley. The rocky plateau that led down was ridden with huge rocks. My claws supported me as I cautiously padded down the uneven ground. I looked up and gestured for the two to stop. They did as I asked. I saw the caribou herd. It was right past the bottom. We didn’t need to do anything. “Come on… Eight, Thanks, although you didn’t do anything…” “Hey! It’s fine… It was better than doing nothing…” He replied back, warmly. “Kate and I are going to go renew the scent markers…” I explained. Eight paused before answering. “Would that be a bit inappropriate to do that with the opposite sex?” He asked, raising one eyebrow. “No? Why?” Kate asked, annoyed. Eight rolled his eyes. “Nevermind… I’ll see you two ‘round…” He finished, turning around. He slowly padded away.
Kate and I walked through dense forests towards the northern borders of our territory. The contented tweets of birds filled the air as we passed many bird nests and rabbit holes… We reached the edge of our territory. I padded to the closest tree and did as I was supposed to. Kate did so as well, but I looked away as she did… We spent over an hour doing that and by that time, we were exhausted and couldn’t go anymore… We proceeded back to our camp so that we could report our tracking results, and then assemble a hunting party. Kate spent most of her time close to me on the walk back for some reason. She cracked a few jokes and asked me what I enjoyed doing in my spare time. I replied back, “I like training and exercise…” She simply replied to me… “Sounds cool!” It was, indeed cool and fun. All that conditioning and practice earned me the right to get any girl I wanted… That was indeed very good.
