Wraen was lying in the tall grass and was watching the ducks that were swimming near the lake's bank. Few weeks earlier she had caught sight of a mother duck with several little, fluffy ducklings keeping close to their matriarch. Now there was sight of only one bugger and she figured that either the last batch had grown up very quickly or someone else had had a marvelous feast and this was all that was left here now. 

Her main focus, however, was not the youngster, but singling out the one feathered avian that would become her lunch today. There were different tactics of, how to attract them close to the water's edge or even better - on the ground, where they weren't that fast. The most bizarre show she had witnessed had been performed by her mother Osprey. Who had danced, rolled on the ground and pretended to be completely mad. And she had been pretty convincing, because the silly birds had swam towards her and only their wings had saved them from a most certain death.

Dancing was not an option here because of the lack of space, therefore Wraen took the cat-like approach, being patient and waiting to make the right move. That moment finally came - she shot out of the grass into the water, attempting to tackle one of the three birds that had come close ending up with mouth full of feathers and one rather ruffled looking duck swimming hastily away, quacking accusingly. Oh well, she would have to give another try.

sunspire's beta had a lot on his mind lately. whether it be about seabreeze or his children or wraen or the rest of the pack-- he stressed. everything stressed him out-- and though he did a marvelous job at concealing his anxieties, he still felt them. god-- when did he become this wolf? terance could hardly remember a time he wasn't plagued by some sort of stress. before sarah's disappearance, maybe. 

he'd left the mountain to take a walk, maybe clear his mind, when he spotted his sister a distance away... hunting? he assumed that's what she was doing. terance was not a hunter. he could hunt, like every other capable wolf, but he was slow to hip, new tactics and a little clumsy in the long run. as always, wraen outdid him in the grace department, being far more clever when it came to hunting. so he approached slowly, assuming wraen probably picked up on his presence, and positioned himself low beside her, giving his sister a gentle nudge to the shoulder. he'd help her-- if she wanted it, she just needed to tell him what to do.

"Bastard," Wraen growled after the duck, climbed out of the water and lied down to free her mouth of the feathers that had stuck between her teeth and to her palate and tongue. While doing this, she shot angry glances towards the quacking air-heads, therefore, when someone else came close and nudged her on the shoulder, she turned and eyed the person with a clear "NOW WHAT?" look.

Recognition hit her then, the look cleared away and she smiled at Terance. "Tried to get one of those jerks," she pointed towards the ducks, who were now far out of the reach. "But good thing you came by - I was in the process of providing lunch and you might come in handy," she added on a brighter tone and beckoned him to follow her along the bank. There - further down the road, deep in the reeds - she had found some nests the other day. While the first batch of "chicks" had grown and left the place already, it was worth having a look there again. 

"How are you doing, daddy?" she asked.
