Bramblepoint so lets set the world on fire

✴        This was the furthest he'd ever been from the mountain, but it was a pivotal moment for young Revui. Thus far the world was his proverbial oyster; the pack was built to protect him, and he had yet to find any sort of issue with it. He was pushing boundaries — something new to the four-month-old — and the more he roamed along the mountain paths, the more bold he felt.

Once he made it all the way down the mountain, the sky was beginning to fade in color. It wasn't quite evening (the sun stayed up and the sky stayed bright for hours longer than normal), but he knew he was tired and hungry — but for once, the beckoning forest in the lowlands was more interesting to him than the prospect of food. As soon as the Bramblewood's shadows criss-crossed around him, he felt invigorated again.

The adventure had just begun.

arcturus had followed revui, at first out of sheer boredom -- but then, as revui's pewter form dipped between blasted rocks and lowland shrubs, arcturus grew apprehensive. soon they were well out of the confines of comforting familiarity; revui plowed onwards, heedless -- and arcturus toiled after him with worry fretting his features.

the little shadow was not a master tracker, but his vantage from the hill and the decreasing daylight at least afforded him the occasional clear view of his brother's backside. eventually, just as the sun began to climb into the distant peaks beyond, arcturus had nearly caught up to his brother. by then the shade of the bramblewood had bent and twisted, and long shadows cloaked the two of them in what arcturus thought was a rather sinister shade.

✴        Revui was not aware he was being followed until much later, when the forest had essentially engulphed his small self and he was being swaddled in shadows. His only indication was the shuffling of feet behind him - something he only noticed because he began to pause more frequently, and the sound curiously continued despite his hesitations. With a turn of his head and a yip, he spotted the bright eyes of his brother — and then with a few bounding leaps, closed the gap between them. The boy grabbed at his brother's ear for an affectionate (but rough) pull as a way of greeting.

already arcturus felt out of place; his ears swept in fanning gestures, his eyes never quit their worried cast; as the shadows grew so did his apprehension, up until he was as jumpy as a young deer. he had been looking (almost longingly) behind him when revui had noticed him, and with a startled yelp arcturus leapt back at the sudden pressure against his ear.

doing so was possibly more painful than just allowing revui to gnaw the triangular fold of skin; arcturus shook his head suddenly, his ear painful and bloodied. cutting his brother a look equally pained and cold, he muttered something under his breath and then tensed as a pair of blackbirds suddenly set flight above them.

✴        He tugged a few times, but it wasn't meant to harm. Unfortunately Arcturus was fighting him a little rather than going with the flow of his antics, but that was his perogative. Soon enough Revui was tasting the thinnest metallic flavor of blood and he released his brother's ear with a small huff, bothered mostly that his shadow wasn't in a playful mood. He was otherwise preoccupied when the birds took flight — but as soon as he heard their wing-beats, his head swivelled, and he doggedly charged away from Arcturus after them. Much the same as a puppy-versus-squirrel scenario, Revui saw the moving objects as targets and was eager to play with them (probably to the detriment of their health). They were faster though; the birds melded with the forest's darkness without issue and Revui was left to race around like a fool.

Hydra

Though they did not know it, they had three shadows on their trail. Hydra recalled the days leaving the territory had been forbidden; it was much the same for them. She thought of the one-eyed bastard that lurked within these wilds—how else would Gannet have found him?—and in their journey after the two brothers, it was his eye she sought. 

It was a terrible thing, to use one's siblings as bait. But in removing the wilds of its worst disease, she would do what she must. 

Hydra's gaze shifted to the flock of birds that took flight, and she bid @Alya check that area with a glance. Some time had passed since the boys had made their way out of Moonspear, and soon she intended to herd them back by any means necessary. Their presence kept them out of harms way, and her priority was their hunt; however, any stranger who approached would find themselves most unwelcome.
