Alpine Lake so delicate by one's eye

He didn't remember the last time he had ventured out this way, but it had been a long while ago. Back to a time when things had certainly had their own hurdles—he thought perhaps the last time he had been here, he had been in control of the weald in whatever fashion he thought fit. Back when the height of summer had begun to wane, back in what seemed a very long time ago for all considered.

In the winter, the lake was a vastly different place.

It had been cold enough now that the edges had frozen solid, save where wandering fares had broken through, where the sun had melted and turned curves sharp. Snow clung where it could, but the depth of the ice was not something so easily trusted and thus he avoided it. Even with the present snowfall, it was easy to tell where it was thinnest by how pools of grey stood and at times spidered out from it.

And for the most part, the locale about the lake was void of any other; nary a bird sang or a hare emerged to pick through the snow that still continued to fall. At least the day was still early; he could have a swift jaunt about here and turn back towards the towering mountains in the east to make it home before the pitchest part of night.

So Dirge roamed.

Tonight Fennec slipped out again.  It was stupid to do so.  Her fathers talk of bears and Wraen's warnings of silent predators echoed in her ears as she carefully picked her way along the  slope.  Even worse was the footing; everything about this was foolish.  But she knew there was a lake up there and she wanted to see it, and for some reason, she needed to leave in order to think straight.

She had marveled over these brief trips how different traveling alone was.  There was no pressure for conversation or noise to distract her.  She listened to the crickets as she climbed and realized, belatedly, that it must be later than she had thought. This was probably why she had slipped away more easily.

A noise to her left made her stiffen and whirl, teeth ready.  Who's there?  If no answer came, she'd charge in to investigate.  No predator was going to take her unawares.

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!

Minutes ticked by unnoticed and gradually he continued his way about the lake's shore with relative ease. It was quite peaceful if he took it into consideration, misleading him into wondering if Hydra had ever graced such a place. With it's relative proximity to Moonspear, it may have even been worth trying to tease her out to such a location... but perhaps at a later date. She was far too riled as of late, wouldn't come out there unless it meant tearing into a subordinate pushing their luck. Or so he believed.

Though given her attitude, he couldn't help but wonder if she would have tore after the meek little doe that made her hushed entrance first at the corner of his sight. With dainty steps and ears that turned at every whisper, he did not immediately peg her as having something off. Yet she did not see him so much as she sensed him as they drew closer; his interest of seeing a new face was whisked away for surprise at the whirl of pearly whites inlaid along a jaw that held a distinct flaw. It was halting, a showstopper to any attempt he had to venture along a familiar avenue.

He had never encountered someone so young and so very blind.

"Easy now," he offered softly, "wasn't my intention to startle you."

Fennec's alarm faded and her lips turned up at his gentle tone.  It was a stranger, but a friendly wolf from the sound of it.  She had no reason to doubt his intentions once he confirmed it, his tone said everything.

You'd need to be quieter to startle me, she answered back a little cheekily.  He had in truth startled her, but only because she'd been so focused on the unfamiliar climb.  She needed to get better about paying attention to both.

Who are you?  He sounded older, but not like anyone she'd ever heard.  Not that she'd met many outside of the Firebirds.

Her features smoothed as she took stock, and his gaze did not waver from the unseeing sight of her own as she did so. The ability to adapt was one particular thing he could not help but admire in others—it was but one skill tantamount to survival in a world that was very much drawn for the fittest of them, and he did not wager that her pack was far off at all.

Little girls did not often wander alone, at least in his estimation.

"I'll just have to try harder next time then," he rejoined, matching her cheeky response with one of his own. "I'm Dirge, from Moonspear. You must live nearby to here, I presume?" He struggled to remember the name of the pack he knew to be closest by, but it did not come. Fire-something, was that it? No...

Ohh.  Now, here, here was where Fennec could have some fun.

You presume?  Why would you think that? She asked, and turned her head in what she guessed was his general direction.  The question was posed innocently enough, but she wondered if he would sense the landmine under it.  She was in no way offended.... but she didn't want him to know this.  She wanted the danger, and the awkward runaround that generally followed.

She waited and didn't introduce herself just yet.  That could wait until he'd answered the question.
