Coconut Grove I feel it more, the further that I get

"That's good," Wraen remarked, missing the fact that she had insulted the youth without an intention to do so. There was no immediate task for Fennec in the pack she could come up with, but she decided that the best way was letting her settle in and observe her progress from aside. The right thing would come along.

"I have observed that sometimes, when tracking vision can be a distraction," large game and small game alike. "And in terms of poisonous plants - their appearances may lie, but the scent never does," she said.

Wraen didn't seem thrown by her comment, but instead answered with a reasonable and calm tone.  It was slightly irresistible.  It reminded her a lot of how dad talked to her and Fig, at least when they hadn't done anything wrong.  She felt a sudden rush of homesickness at the thought.

I can track.  I don't know plants though.  This time she decided to be honest.  She could follow a trail better than most, but she'd never had anyone to teach her which plants were what and how to find things.  Do you eat a lot of them? That was weird.

Fenn is blind, and as she's older, will take all of her character insight from tone.  If you are ever uncomfortable with an assumption she makes, please let me know!
Fig is always welcome (as if she has a choice <3)

"Poisonous plants?" Wraen asked, pretending to misunderstand Fennec's question, then shook her head and realizing that this gesture meant nothing to the girl, added. "Neither those, nor other plants in general, when there is meat around. However, food is never a consistent feature in one's life and sometimes you are forced to turn to different sources of food," she explained.

"You can learn more about plants from Sugar Glider - she has taken particular interest in them - and ask Eljay as well. I believe he has some information on healing plants. And those are always valuable to learn," she told.

So she could help with plants, but that wasn't really useful then, from what Wraen just said.  Aside from healing, but Fennec had no interest in learning that as compared to the more 'exciting' skills she and her brother had been trying to pick up.  Neither Phox nor Towhee had done much to pique her interest there, and even if they had tried, doubtless it would have been ignored.

Ignored so much so, actually, that she wouldn't remember the note about her cousin even when she met her a little while later.  Maybe, she said, but her tone made it pretty clear she was only saying that.  Instead she was back and stuck on thinking about home now as she waited for Wraen to lead them off.

Wraen smiled, when Fennec showed hardly any enthusiasm for learning practical application of plants. She did not blame her - children and adolescents were just as entitled to do, what they enjoyed (within limits, of course), as everyone else. And, besides - who could better tell, what a blind wolf was good for, if not the same person, who had this first-hand experience.

"Is there something you particularly like to do?" she asked Fennec. "Perhaps, there is a trade I can assign you that fits your interests better."

Was there anything she enjoyed doing?  Playing with Fig, wrestling with Towhee or sitting up at night with dad.  But those weren't really about the things; she was bad at all of them.

I like finding new smells, and listening to the birds.  But those aren't really trades.  Her voice got a little dubious.  The first one maybe, but what good was finding a scent if following it meant she ran into something she couldn't see.  I mostly like following Fig.  That admission was one born of loneliness, because there was no way she would ever admit that were he in earshot.

"Trades come along later for all wolves," Wraen explained. She had not been sure, which path to pursue herself. Great revelations in life had come later with experience and simply dabbling here and there. "I wanted to become scout - this means a lot of travelling and meeting new people - but I always got side-tracked by scents of small game and ended up hunting and forgetting, where I wanted to go in the first place," she told. 

"And it was not until later, when I realized that my passion for story-telling is a trade of a different kind," she spoke, fondness evident in her voice. "It might not seem practical to everyone at the first glance, but I have realized that being the living memory of the pack is just as important."
