All welcome!

If there had been any doubt before now, it was gone.

Her belly had dropped but a measure; none but those with a keen enough eye would recognize this (the near-entirety of her family). Her desire for food had spiked; she was insatiable, and her hunger seemed endless. She suffered bouts of morning sickness, but that seemed to be dwindling as of late, a fortuitous thing. This morning, however, it presented itself to her again moments after she roused. She could not find it in herself to be miserable by the whole ordeal—in fact, she took it as a sign of strength.

With a sigh, she pushed herself to a seated position and gazed down upon her belly. Within grew little warriors; the mountains next generation of strong and capable wolves. She—with the help of Dirge—had done this, and to think of what was to come made her proud. Now shifting to a stand, Hydra looked around her with a cursory sniff. Dirge was likely fetching her something to eat, but perhaps she ought to find him so together they could bring down larger fare...

Why not both, though?

In the meantime, Hydra would not grow soft; she wanted to find out what her body was capable of doing in the times of its change, and would test herself.

ignore or come, up to you!! He's not trespassing <3 so this can be a cameo

Gannet had found happiness he had never dreamed of in Lost Creek Hollow, raising Ashlar with Mona and learning the trade of healing. He had grown immensely, but in that time, something still weighed on him.

It did not suit him to carry burdens, and he wished to shed this one. So this afternoon found him standing on the mountain verge, staring at the side with his muzzle poised. He loosed a friendly howl, a question. If Hydra was there, perhaps she'd come? This time his hopes were not too high; if she didn't, he would simply depart. But it would be good to see his friend once more.

The voice was a familiar one, though it was not one she had thought to hear here ever again. Her imagination was not so clever as to conjure his voice to such accuracy, and so Hydra was given pause as she contemplated her next course of action. Gannet had left, and when he had returned she was the last to know—she had thought them better friends than that. Who he ran with she did not know, and as she stood there, debating, she wondered if she wanted to know at all. 

Yes, she did. Of course she did. Knowledge was power, after all. 

It did not take her too long to arrive, though she had not been in any particular rush. With expert ease did Hydra descend the mountains lower ridges to meet him, until at last she stood in front of him with an assessing eye. He looked well, frustratingly enough. She had almost hoped to see him here with jutting ribs and nutrient deficient, helpless on his own... but he had found a pack out there, she could smell a number of wolves upon him, and one in particular caused her nausea to return (though she could not yet place it). 

Gannet, she greeted, I did not think I would ever see you again. Her features did not display whether she was pleased by being wrong, or otherwise—she herself was not so certain, herself, how she felt.

It didn't matter how she approached; as she descended swiftly and surely to meet him, it was clear that Gannet was immensely pleased to see her. His eyes shone and a huge smile lit up his face, and he greeted her with a happy exclamation. Hydra!

He'd promised he would, but he supposed he couldn't blame her for thinking he had lied. It had taken a long time. I stayed with Whip a while, and then until spring with the Hollow. he answered, guileless as always. He found no reason to lie to her or to hide anything; it didn't occur to him yet she might be upset he hadn't returned to live with them, just as Charon had been.

He explained himself; the way he phrased it, she imagined he was no longer with them. But the Hollow rang a bell, and she remembered as she sifted through her memory why. Does Terance still lead? she wondered, interested in his wellbeing. They had made amends, at least. And now that he was here... are you here to stay? she could not withhold the optimistic twitch of her tail.

Gannet nodded. Terance still led in part, but not completely. With Treason and Rannoch. he added. Her second question was a fairly easy one to answer also, and again, he felt as usual it was good to be upfront.

No. I have family there now, he said, smiling as he thought of Ashlar and Mona. I'm learning to heal, and to teach. And to help. He felt more fulfilled than he ever had before, and it rested in him with a quiet assurance.
