Heron Lake Plateau United states of a miracle.

News tended to spread pretty quickly between the two sister packs, so it wasn't long before Towhee learned about Wildfire's illness. She felt bad for her older sister and her family, though there wasn't much anyone could do, @Raven included. Towhee's personal involvement didn't extend much further, at least not until she was approached with a request to dispatch X to search for @Kiwi, who was apparently missing in action.

Sitting at the edge of the plateau, the Beta considered the logistics. Sure, she could send the hawk to search for Kiwi, yet supposing he located her, how on earth was the hawk supposed to compel the yearling to return? How was he supposed to tell her about her ailing mother? The only solution was for Towhee to accompany him and act as a translator. For several reasons, the mercenary didn't want to do that. She didn't want to leave @Phox, @Fig and @Fennec. She didn't want to leave the plateau. She was no scout.

But she felt guilty, knowing she might be the only one who was able to reunite mother and daughter before the former quite likely passed away. Drawing in a long breath, Towhee took to her feet, though she did not disembark nor even call for X. Instead, she went looking for @Tegan.

I'm gonna date this for the 19th. :)

i dunno what tegan was doing. let's go out on a limb and say he'd just finished a patrol on the southern border and was now taking a nap. 

he smelled towhee before he saw her, nose twitching and ears pricking as he lifted his head to turn to see her. she approached as normal, tegan sensed nothing wrong (because he's stupid) and let his jaws part into a wide yawn, tail tapping a few times against the ground. hey, tow, he called out.

It wasn't long before she tracked him down near the borders to the south, evidently recovering from a patrol. He stirred and greeted her, to which she responded with a nod and a loud, "Hey." Towhee said nothing else as she closed the distance, casting a sidelong glance at the waterfall off to her right.

When she came closer, she took a seat and got right down to business. "Dunno if you've heard the news about Wildfire but she's pretty sick. And Kiwi's totally MIA. I've been asked to send X out looking for her but it's pretty pointless without someone to go with him to translate. I know you two don't get along but I figured I'd ask if you were up to the task. I could go with you if you want, although I'd rather not," Towhee said with her usual frankness.

tegan stared as towhee explained, shifting a little more upright to listen to the whole ordeal. his face was pretty askew the more he learned about the task, and only when towhee finished did tegan respond. towhee, you're absolutely peachy keen, and i usually like being a part of this pack, but i gotta say, i really don't care about a single other one of the redhawks on this damn planet, he told her, matching her frankness with a quick flick of one of his ears backwards. he tilted his head so that the scar on his cheek was more prominent and pointed at it with a paw. phox included, by the way, he added. 

he turned from her for a second, using that same paw to swipe down his muzzle, releasing a heavy sigh. he looked back at her so that she could read his lips. don't the firebirds have a scout to send after her? or clover? she always had her head up kiwi's ass.

His retort caused Towhee's brows to lift. Where had that come from? He made a point to mention Phox and her expression shifted into a bit of a scowl. Why was he telling her this? What did it have to do with anything?

"What the fuck, Teg?" she muttered, entirely thrown off course by his rude and unnecessary commentary.

her scowl didn't really take tegan by surprise, he knew the comment was pretty out of pocket as soon as he made it... but he stood by it. sorry, tow, it's true, he told her with a gentle shrug, shifting again to sit a little more upright. he just remembered raven right now as he spoke, and he liked raven, but he didn't make a comment on it. i feel like i just keep getting fucked over by redhawks. screech, for one, bat came and left like it was fucking nothing, wildfire up and stole half the pack from us, kiwi is a bitch on the same level as clover, and phox fuckin attacked me when i was trying to get poe to safety during her heat, he explained in as much detail as he could manage. 

okay, now he'd mention raven -- just in an effort to soften the blow. you and raven's family are important to me, and i trust you wholeheartedly and you know i'd do anything for you, b. i'm just saying i keep getting the shit end of the deal from the rest of the clan.

"Okay," Towhee interrupted him in the middle of his tirade, her tone edging toward a snap, "all right. I get it, you don't want to do it. Don't know why you're felt the need to go off on me about this shit." And it quite frankly irritated her, mostly because he'd shat on Phox out of goddamn nowhere. The rest of his rant was mostly irrelevant to the subject too. Yet, despite herself, some of what he'd said stuck in her brain.

Grinding her teeth impatiently, Towhee drew in a breath, then sighed it back out. "You're not under any obligation to do anything. Neither am I. But I thought I'd ask. Didn't realize it'd cause a tirade." But now she spoke without any heat. And she couldn't help but ask, "Phox attacked you? Really?" How had she not heard about this? Oh yeah, because she's deaf.

being interrupted, tegan felt a little twinge if agitation wriggle through him — though he kept it at bay. instead, to her defensive remark, tegan said, it was a request to find a wolf that adamantly hates me. and vis versa. and she’s bat’s sister. you were just as insensitive. to tegan, this made lots of sense. I’m not saying it’s reasonable, it’s just his take. hot take, maybe, but still. 

and then he was quiet for a second as she asked a second question. tegan simply nodded. yeah, he muttered, not giving the full details of it since he’d already mentioned he was trying to protect poe. who i am guessing has been MIA and another’s source of tegan’s angst. but call me crazy.
