Steele felt as though He needed a journey, to find himself or something but he couldn’t really put his paw on it. As the days got longer his thought still lingered and bothered him much more. Today was the day he was going to set out on whatever journey that life may give him. 

Steele padded around to find @Alarian to tell him that he was leaving to find his way in life. That he might be back later to visit but for now needed to seek out something. It was as though he was having some kind of midlife crisis.

It was not Alarian that stumbled upon Steele, but Lily, admiring the way the midsummer flowers bloomed around Broken Boulder. The contemplative look on his face took her aback, and she tilted her head as she approached, wondering what was the matter. Words still escaped her, but she made it very clear that she was inquiring, not demanding.

Steele had been a welcome presence at the Sanctuary, though she hadn't had the chance to speak to him much, being wrapped up with her own injuries and setbacks. She hoped he was recovering well from his own crisis; it made her sad to think the bear haunted his nightmares just as the river haunted hers. She stood, tail waving slightly to and fro, waiting for him to speak.

Steele never saw the slim male he was looking for but rather Lily showed up instead. He wasn’t about to turn her away it wasn’t in his nature to do so. His head dipped and as he brought it back up he spoke, “Hello Lily” his voice was rough, not like usual but like his demons were toying with him. 

Steele could tell that she was fighting her own problems but she wanted to talk to him anyway. He thought it was sweet, something he hasn’t seen before. Though he wondered why she didn’t greet him when she first walked up. It didn’t bother him much, Steele was just curious about it.

She wagged her tail in response, a smile of greeting gracing her maw as she dipped her head. Eyes calm, she waited for him to speak. All the while, she tried to pick up little details here and there, clues that might lead her to answers before the words came. . .if the words came. Her greatest strength was speech; she was Samson without his hair, at this point.

She had tried, though. And there had been moments where the words seemed just about to come, but fell flat at the last second, escaping her tongue as a whimper or a groan. Lily didn't know what it would take for her to speak again. Perhaps she never would, and that was a thought that scared her more than anything else in the world. Death would be better than being mute, especially if she was blessed with a particularly long life.

Steele smiled back at Lily warmly. Her presence seemed to bring about some good thoughts in him. The gray male seemed to notice that she couldn’t talk, but he didn’t say anything just gave her a slight nudge (if allowed). “I hope you are doing well. I seem to be having some... I don’t know second thoughts about a pack.” He admitted this to her with confidence she might be able to help him, even if it seemed she couldn’t say much.

I... I am sorry about your voice Lily. I hope you can get it back” he said genuinely concerned about it. With a lot of work and help he was sure she would be able to. He waited for body language from her to make sure she was following, it was strange to be the only one talking.

She cocked her head, confused, then slightly perturbed. For a moment, she viewed his resistance to packs altogether as an affront toward their hospitality, and the tiniest of growls bubbled in her throat--but his next words made her soften, though the attitude change came not without pain. He was being sincere, she thought. . .but why? What had changed his mind?

Lily nodded at his apology, giving him a cheeky smile. She wished more than anyone that her voice would come back, though she was sure the Bracken wolves had enjoyed the respite from her chattering. Alarian, especially. Her ears flattened as she thought of the Governor, and her gaze wandered toward the Broken Boulder. Where was he? She wondered if he knew about Steele's internal conflict.

Steele understood her body language and why she had done it. Who wouldn’t take offense when someone says they aren’t sure about a pack that you feel is family? His internal war was growing by the second, Lily’s growl seemed to make him feel worse about wanting to leave. All he could do was look at the ground and let his ears drop a bit, it seemed as though he’d never get the answer he was wanting. But then again he didn’t even know what answer it was.

The smile Lily gave was welcome to him as he glanced up at her from his looking at the ground pose. She was the one who brought him here, and maybe that’s why he wished that she could have her voice back, for being so generous. A quality like that is hard to come by anymore and when he found it in Lily it was a shock. He nodded at her, “I understand why you’re probably upset with me for this conflict about a pack. You are the one who brought me here, who opened this place up to me.” He broke the seeming never ending silence. “Generousity is hard to come by these days and you have that trait down pat.” He complimented her. “I guess I could let you know why I feel this way huh?” He asked her.
