Towhee
Redhawks
Beta
She found solace in @Raven's company. Somehow, her older sister's presence helped soothe all the aches and pains afflicting Towhee lately, from her fears about the Redhawks disbanding to Bat's sudden and tragic death. She hadn't been particularly close to the girl, yet she'd liked her well enough. And she was close to @Tegan. Seeing him suffer that sort of loss was sort of devastating.

At length, she left to take care of business—primarily, she needed to patrol—but Towhee didn't head to the borders either directly or swiftly. She loitered aimlessly across the plateau, wishing for company but unsure where to turn. @Niamh was away on some trip, @Phox had found @Camilla; her People were otherwise preoccupied.

Heaving a sigh, Towhee rolled to a stop and peered upward, combing the dull white sky for any sign of the hawk. But she didn't see X and soon her head dropped again, listlessly, as Towhee fought against the empty feeling welling inside her.

Vasa
Redhawks
Juvenile
Vasa, on the other hand, wasn't nearly so glum.  Mostly because given tags, she didn't really know Bat all that well and maybe didn't entirely have a complete understanding or emotional maturity to realize how awful her disappearance was for some members of the pack.  At a certain point, she was basically back to normal, but with a much sterner warning to not go on ice.

That wasn't in her adventures for today, though, as she was up to other nonsense.  It was one thing for her to practice skills that would serve her her entire life, but practicing sneaking around by "hunting" Towhee was probably kind of cheating.  If she stayed out of sight and downwind, that made her basically unnoticeable since Towhee couldn't hear Vasa's slightly-clumsy skittering about in the snow.  The main problem she was having that Towhee wasn't taking a particularly logical route, so she kept having to relocate so that she'd stay in the metaphorical blind spot.  Okay, maybe that made it a bit better practice than it otherwise would have been.

When Towhee paused, Vasa took a guess at where she'd next be turning, moving along to another patch of snow to duck down and look innocent more like a border collie herding sheep than a wolf looking to pounce.  Except, well, she honestly wasn't expecting Towhee to look down when she did and so Vasa was kind of in the wrong spot, probably near the edge of her peripheral vision.  She crouched, but given she was a large black blot in a pretty snowy landscape, chances were the jig was up.

She picked up her feet to begin moving again, her head lifting to face forward. Towhee stopped short when she saw Vasa crouched a few yards away, looking as if she'd been preparing to pounce her aunt. Normally, this sight would've won a smile out of the Beta. She attempted to coax her cheek muscles into one now, though there was nothing for it.

But she was gladdened by the sight of her niece. Raven and the pups weren't going anywhere, right? "Hey, Vasa. Using me for target practice?"
