honey whiskey - nothing but thieves

As the sun bid its goodbye and began to sink behind the mountains, Remi too began to search for a place to spend the night. The few days since he had arrived at the Wilds had been a blur. Berries, ducks, there had been a little of everything. And boy what was yet to come..

As usual Remi moved silently, his paws falling lightly yet quickly onto the floor as he scurried by.
Soon the Ostrega found himself in a place unlike any he had ever seen - which to be honest wasn't such a hard feat considering he hadn't really left his home in Havana Pier.
Until now. 

But next to this place, the Pier seemed to pale in comparison - but maybe that was because after being the only thing he had known its beauty became normal. Anyways, forgetting the Pier, his siblings, parents, and everything else, Remi entered the cavern. Though it was already dark outside, he was still able to kinda see inside, and Remi really wasn't one to fear the dark.
Not like Rilke had.

Rannoch had set off from the Vale early in the morning with the intentions of scouting out the territories that surrounded his. After leaving @Rian and @Cypress in charge and let @Liffey know where he was going, the plush-pelted male had slipped away from his packmates to satisfy the curiosity that had captured his attention for quite some time. It wasn't until today that Rannoch felt confident in going too far from his claim and seizing the comfort, Rannoch set off with no particular destination in mind. 

It was around mid-day in which Rannoch came across an unusual sight: a large sunlit cavern with vegetation. Though the scent of some wolves was marinated in the walls of the oasis, from what Rannoch could tell there were no wolves currently living here. The borders were long faded, and as he ventured further into the realm, Rannoch found no signs of others. Once he was confident that he was alone, the Alpha pressed forward and investigated the terrain that smelled so eerily similar of Kaori and Airi. 

It was nearly sundown when Rannoch realized that it was getting too late and that he needed to start back towards the Vale. The cavern had grown dark quickly, sunlight slipping as Rannoch pulled himself from the depths of the abandoned territory. He finally found the entrance once the darkness had consumed the cave, the outline of the front opening illuminated by the gentle moonlight that drenched the region's rocky doorstep. But even with the relief of his finding the entrance, there was something concerning: the silhouette of another wolf. He froze at this sight, his body growing rigid as instinct kicked in. Though he had no reason to fear the other's presence, Rannoch knew not to let his guard down. After all, he did not have the support of his wolves. He was alone, stuck in a cave with some stranger. 

"Hello?" He called out in a deep baritone, his characteristic friendliness shining through despite the edge that he felt.

Before he could avoid it, the thought of his baby sister took ahold of his mind as the darkness had too settled inside the cavern. Suddenly, he felt like he had been here before. But it wasn't this cave he was remembering, it was a cove within Havana Pier's borders. It had been a scavenging trip, he was looking for seashells, and like always, Rilke had tagged along. Tango's voice, a hushed warning about the possible creatures that made the cove their home had been promptly ignored. Karma and Dharma had also followed, but unlike the smaller, younger Rilke, they had refused to follow Remi where their eyes could no longer see. 

With slow, measured steps, Remi continued to make his way into the depths of the cave. For all he knew he could be walking into his own grave as this cave could easily be the home of a bear or some other, larger, predator. But with his mind echoing,  'if you dont go you'll never know' like some sort of mantra, he kept going. That until it seemed that his thoughts became, without his knowledge, spoken words and came back to him in the form of an echo.

Remi too froze, his tail rising stiffly in alarm as he narrowed his eyes in a feeble attempt to identify the source of this voice. "Hello" he barked then, his tone affirmative rather than questioning. There was obviously someone else there, and though he had no way of knowing of this other's intentions, he knew his own.
He came in peace.

Rannoch's question was promptly returned with a reply from another. Though there was nothing particularly off-putting about this voice, as it had merely answered his call, Rannoch was still left with the uncertainties he felt towards his company. Quickly, as he wished to expel such feelings, the Alpha of the Vale spoke again, his voice stronger despite the weariness he felt in his heart. 

"Am I trespassing in your home?" Not one to beat around the bush, the burly male had to know whether or not he had gone too far. "Before entering, I made sure that this place wasn't occupied, but you can never be too certain, even without the scent of the pack, if somebody is using it for a temporary settlement." After all, he and his wolves had found the company of many prying visitors even after they had established their borders. Even in him taking care in examining the scents of the lair before his arrival, there was still room for error on his part. He waited then, standing rigid, as his eyes fell to the foyer of the abandoned territory and the wolf who had replied to him.
