Tonight, his paws were itching and his heart was racing. He had scoured the slopes of their verdant mountainside, run amok on re-marking their borders, and still felt energy to burn coursing hot in his blood. Overhead, he noticed the moon was rather full, and the night was young, so he slung back his head for a short howl to tell his comrades before he went galloping for the valleys spread below. Usually, he'd try to rally up a sister or Gannet before he took off, but tonight he left it up to them to find him if they wanted--he had a need to just keep moving towards whatever goal he could find along the way.

A newly growing piece of him was keen to stretch his legs in this way more than before. New standing and responsibilities at home had helped bolster his confidence lately, and this played into it gamely. Along with a full year beneath his belt and new little siblings to help protect, the Ostrega was feeling bolder in recent weeks than he had ever known before. He was game to see more, and ever-curious to find out what he could learn out there, wherever his paws went.

He picked a forward route leading into the heart of the Silverlight, perhaps hoping for a hunt at best--not that one yearling packed a punch, but he was adaptable and fast enough. He could test his luck and he wanted a challenge, but nothing caught his nose yet, so he kept going, length after length away from the slopes. While he was out here, a piece of him stayed on the lookout for some of their misplaced faces: Vela's Drogon first of all--who he held a higher hope to--and then secondarily, the mysterious Lucy who he had not seen in some time, nor did he or his family have any clue about. Almost, he wondered if she did not want to be found--however, he was eyes and ears peeled for anything remotely worth venting his energy towards as he trotted over the moon-draped hills.

Erzulie

tagging for visibility

        today brought erzulie's first foray inland, and she had only paused with the smallest hint of trepidation before departing ironsea in the afternoon. the low croon of her howl belonged to @Smokestep, @Rosalyn, @Raptor — she would return, for the land along the brine had become hers. and yet the first mate had been absent from the shoreline. a frown tugged at erzulie's delicate features, but she continued into the wilds all the same.
        the night fell in warm draperies; the mint-glow gaze of the harlot caught the gravid whitestone glint of the moon and held it. her pace quickened as emerald grasses spread out across slow rolling terrain; erzulie lowered her muzzle to scent the rich loam beneath, mouth curving in a swift, silent smile at the pleasure of the blades' cool texture, so unlike the sand of ironsea.
        and when she lifted her slender countenance, the swab's gaze caught the rangy movement of yearling trotsteps: a creature of shadow and charcoal, and erzulie in their path. the woman made no move to veil herself or avoid the approach; her honeycream figure instead turned to more fully face the oncomer, rosebug tongue sweeping her jaws with interest.

With night settling and by this far out, he had grown comfortable with a smooth cruise--physically, and in his mindset too. Beneath all the cool night air and the little subtle burn of exertion the hills asked of him and his stride (not that these were anything for such a mountaineer), he was feeling good. It was sight of some stranger that made him suddenly hyper-aware of his every single inch where before, he had felt like so beyond all that.

He slowed his gait to something slower, but longer in each reach of his legs and still  kept her in the center of his path. Something in him said engage, so he did, and when he got a little closer, he picked his tail up a touch for a hesitant little wag. He had the mountain at his back and that meant sure safety, and he used this to remind his confidence to stay put. So far, she didn't look to be teeth first but her coat colors were awfully distracting to him from his mountain of monochrome. Best be on guard. "Hey, hi," he grinned toothily, testament to his decent enough demeanor even if he looked kind of wary right after the words left his mouth and how unknown she was really hit him when his nose smelled all sorts of weird on her. "Why are you here?" he went on ahead and asked, still not coming to a complete stop.

        the boy, all tones of charcoal with a piercing verdant gaze, flashed erzulie a charming grin. as he did not pause, the ironsea wolfess found his step and matched it with her own. "why not?" she rejoined, turning her eyes out over the darkened expanse of land stretching before them.
        perhaps he wondered why a creature scented by the ocean was so far inland; erzulie waited a heartbeat before offering, "i have nevah explored dis part of the land before." and then, lapsing into a comfortable silence once more. it was the boy's turn to speak, and she busied herself imagining how he would respond, a lazy and amusing exercise.

His ears turned to the unexpected inquiry she volleyed back at him, and, well, he quickly found he didn't have a real answer even as his sights followed her gaze into the dark reaching all around. Why, why not? In either case, he really supposed that swung well above his head towards something he could not say. Without saying so, he decided to just agree. "Guess so," he said, tail switching still. This was a good place, she had plenty of reason to investigate these hills further.

The yearling had learned already there was much to see for any willing to go after it. "Never? It's.. nice. Quiet. Lots to hunt for usually." When he was often the most disruptive matter around, he could consider that a good plus, and now was one of the times.

Picking up on a few implications, between her words and scent alike, with how variegated her coat was too, he went ahead and asked: "Are you from far away?" He veered just a little closer, nose aimed at her first. He knew the sea plenty through his father's tellings, but never with his own nose. The connection was not quite fully formed yet, though he definitely marked it as very curious.

        she did not take his succinct answer at displeasure; the youth simply turned his attention to other things. herself, for instance; her countenance warmed beneath her allspice mask. "nevah," erzulie confirmed with a wry glint of teeth in a smile that remained as she pondered his next inquiry.
        "yes. i live at ironsea. i be right along de watah," the harlot added, unable to keep from indulging the sable creature's intrigue around the salt-scent she carried laced into her pelt. "it is not so fah," erzulie went on, turning her mismatched gaze upon the boy, noting the lovely hue of his own gaze, "but my captain, he be a pirate."
