There were some unfamiliar scents in the territory; based on how long they had been there, Lily surmised that these weren't trespassers but wolves that Seabreeze had allowed to stay. Even before she was a leader, she felt it her responsibility to at least be acquainted with each and every one of them. Friendship was preferable, though not everyone would be amenable to that.

She wandered through the forest, sniffing like a bloodhound, trying to track one of these myriad smells. They zig-zagged all over, and some disappeared completely, only to surface elsewhere. Strange. It had already been long established that Lily was a slightly poor navigator; little wonder she was getting lost in her own forest.

Eventually, she settled close to the waterfall, near enough to have it a murmur in her ears but not so close that she was deafened by its crashing descent. Her ears swiveled as she listened for the sound small game, trying to occupy herself with something lest she come up empty in today's search for newcomers.

It is mostly @Seabreeze that visits her. She is likely the only one to really know where to find her and, for the most part, she likes it that way. Qilaq knows there are other wolves in the pack, that they’ve moved from another place and eventually they’ll figure out where she is, but her road to recovery may be a long one with winter on the cusp and days already cold. Her fur has only just begun to grow back, soft fuzz in some places and some places it will never grow. For a while, she keeps herself hidden when others manage to get close and the need this time is no different.
 
She spots the dark wolf as she’s moving away from the water, waterfall behind her. Silver eyes widen in surprise and she backs up, then freezes in place. The crashing sound and gusts of mist keep her sound and scent lost upon the air but no matter where or how she moves, she’ll be spotted. Ears twitch upon her head as she considers her next move. Maybe if she stays still enough she’ll be overlooked but her feet itch to run and hide. The stranger’s features are not defined at her distance, struggling to focus against the sun, but her dark pelt doesn’t help. She has enough trust invested in Seabreeze now that surely she wouldn’t have let one of those wolves near (not that Qilaq has spoken about them) and she’s simply a wolf of the pack. She inhales slowly, holding the breath, and slowly lowers her rump to the ground.

The first movement didn't catch her attention, but the second did. Lily's eyes flashed that way, and her ears shot forward, brows raising as she saw the frightened woman with wide silver eyes. Concerned, the blackbird began to pad slowly toward her, head tilting in gentle query. Hey, she said softly, unsure whether the stranger could even hear her, at this distance. It's okay. I won't hurt you.

Still, she was wary. Was this a new member? With as many trips outside the territory as she had taken lately, she was a bit behind on meeting faces recently added to their ranks. The other smelled as if she had been here for some time. . .but had it been in a malicious manner? Hiding, waiting. . .

I'm not going to hurt you, Lily insisted, a little louder now. I'm Lily, one of the leaders here. What's your name?

She does not get out of the situation unseen and instead, she’s alarmed the other. Seabreeze promised to give her space when she needed but has she pushed it too far? She hadn’t considered how she’d introduce to the pack, but she expected the other woman to be there by her side and assure her that each wolf is okay. This one says she won’t hurt her but so had the other wolves, once upon a time.
 
Awkwardly, Qilaq shuffles a seat back when the other closes in, heart beating heavy in her chest. “Breeze,” she blurts, voice cracking, and then shakes her head. “Wh-where Breeze?”
