Remembering the dark furred warrior introducing herself, Jinx turned her head to look at her training partner, Amatis. The fae was relieved to have been paired with her, rather than a male. She waited for Chiara to finish speaking before approaching her assigned partner with a smile that she plastered onto her mouth. "Hello Amatis. It appears that we have been paired together. Care to join me to the valley?" Her voice held more emotion than when previously introducing herself to the pack. The huntress had not worked as part of a team for a while now, hence why it brought out a sense of vulnerability about the fae, though she made sure not to show it. The last thing she wanted was being viewed as incapable. Jinx began making her way to the valley where she anticipated teaching Amatis the basic skills of hunting. The multicoloured fae had faith that the warrior would learn useful lessons from herself, and that she herself would learn a thing or two from her in return. The weather was unapologetically bitter, however this wasn't going to take anything away from this valuable experience.

Arriving at Timeless Valley, Jinx descended the slopes with caution to get to the burrows below. "Watch your step, Amatis." She advised the warrior. The last thing she needed was her hunting partner being injured before they had even begun. Once reaching the floor of the valley, the predominantly grey she-wolf started thinking of what she could teach Amatis as her pastel orbs grazed the snow covered land. She continued ahead at a gentle pace so as to not scare away nearby prey. "If there's an advantage of this winter weather, it's that animal tracks are easily visible. Therefore you can rely more on following tracks rather than scents, since following scents can be more difficult at this time of year." The huntress glanced at her partner to validate that she was listening to her advice, then paused and looked to the footprints that spread through the carpet of ice crystals. "When rabbits travel, first their small front paws touch the ground, then the larger back feet travel over the paws still on the ground, and land in front of the planted front paws. Therefore, tracks of the front paws lie behind the tracks of the back paws. These tracks were produced by a rushing rabbit as the clusters of prints are further apart. The rabbit must have been startled from our wolves coming here, so it will most likely be hiding in its burrow. You go ahead following these tracks and I'll guide you from there." Jinx allowed her to lead the way, excited for the action to begin. Hopefully after hunting rabbits, the eager fae could teach Amatis how to hunt a larger animal and the real fun could begin.

Amatis had been silent, waiting for each wolf to give their name beore Chiara spoke. Pairs, they were given pairs to teach each other. It would be quite nice considering they would all get to know each other. She had been paired with the lovely grey pelted fae named Jinx. Amatis noticed the smile on her face as she walked over, and could not help but smile back. "Of course, I would not mind at all." She said following after Jinx towards Timeless Valley. It would be a treat to actually see the part of the land she had not visited yet. The cold wind buffeted from the side of the valley, making her shiver. The winter had come upon them, and fast. The snow crunched gently under their feet as they walked on following after the other pairs as they trotted along. Everyone was excited for their first "mission" given by the alpha and alphess.

Glancing to Jinx as she spoke, Amatis glanced in front of her and quietly stepped over the area she had cautioned and nodded to her in thanks. Following the light steps of her companion she listened to Jinx quietly. "I see, so the tracks are easier to follow by sight rather than smell. When it comes winter, it becomes harder to find fresh scents because the snow tends to fall and wipe everything away. However, when you are checking the border, it can go the same for tracking. If you see fresh prints and they dont smell like home, it is well known that someone has come along." She said nodding her head once more. "I would have been startled to if I was a rabbit." She said and nodded her head following the tracks. She had been a loner for quite some time, she knew how to hunt but it was nice to get a better perspective on something that someone else grew up in. She followed the tracks curious of where they would lead, and if she would find her prey.

Jinx had taught young and learning hunters how to improve their technique in her previous pack, as she was one of the most experienced, however this was a slightly different challenge. She didn't know how much knowledge Amatis already had about hunting, though she was going to assume that she had none for the purpose of this training exercise. The dark, amber eyed fae seemed perfectly bright and cooperative, making this experience straightforward so far. Not usually caring for others company, Jinx didn't mind exploring the unfamiliar pack lands with Amatis by her side. She'd rather be with the fae that the Alphess partnered her with than a brute who caused an annoyance or tried to take charge. Living as a loner accentuated her natural independent traits. Now as part of a continuously expanding pack, that would have to change to a certain degree. The huntress followed closely behind Amatis, in search of the rabbit that had recently passed by. She figured that it would benefit the warrior more if she was the one doing most of the work, while Jinx herself simply assisted her.

The rabbit burrow came into sight ahead. "Stop there, Amatis." Jinx said as she considered their options. After a brief pause, the fae proceeded to explain. "The rabbit has wisely gone to hide in its burrow, but that doesn't necessarily mean that the hunt is over. If we're patient and precise, we should be able to catch it. You go and position yourself behind the entrance of the burrow so the rabbits cannot see or smell you. Don't follow their tracks straight there, go around and make sure you're out of view from the entrance. I will hide behind the shrubs ahead of the burrow and should a rabbit emerge, I'll scare it back in your direction so that you can obstruct the burrow's entrance and catch it. Be alert and try your best not to let it run back into the burrow. Understood?" This was going to be quite a challenge for Amatis as she had to strike at just the right time for her to catch the small, agile animal. However, Jinx believed that it was better for her to face a challenge than having to do something that lacked difficulty.

Amatis was focused on following the trail, keeping her nimble body as silent as possible. Amatis was focused, despite how her mind liked to wander. Her mind was going over strategies simple ways to teach Jinx better combat skills. While her mind was properly focused on the hunt, she still wanted to interject some of her own teachings while trying to in-cooperate this hunt as well. While Amatis was still getting used to the idea of being in the pack, she had settled in quite comfortably around Jinx. While she didn't mind what gender she had been paired with, she didn't mind being paired with Jinx. So far, Amatis found her quite nice and gentle. While she was sure she had been a loner long before ever finding a pack..who wasn't? Most didn't just leave a pack unless forced to, or for new opportunities. Some were born loners, and had to fight for everything they had. Amatis remembered clearly what she had gone through being a loner, since it was not that long ago. Breaking her thoughts with a gentle shake, she stepped forward moving through the snow following the scent.

Ears flicking back to Jinx's voice, Amatis paused in her walk to glance over to her. She had seen the rabbit's burrow, and was sure the rabbit had safely gone away. Sitting up, and nodding her head Amatis knew that the little fae was right. Patience came with hunting, just like it did with training. "It will not get away." The fae promised, a slight smile upon her dark lips. Moving away from her, she walked in an arch taking light steps as she moved around the burrow. Once behind it she settled down to wait. The waiting was what would be the longest, but it did not bother her. She was often waiting for many things, and hunting had always been on. She watched Jinx slip into the shrubbery and continued to wait, able to hear the rabbit moving around. Soon it would come up, hoping the coast was clear and begin to eat. Once it had perked its little head Amatis would attack. Her dark amber eyes never left the rabbit burrow as she waited patiently. The snow began to fall around them, but she barely noticed it. The rabbit appeared, and it surprised her but she moved quick. She snapped down at the rabbit its scruff in her jaws. The rabbit squealed and she shook it once, its neck snapping. She looked over to Jinx holding it. "It didn't feel a thing." She said as laid it onto the ground. "I know I could have missed, but I had been waiting. I was able to reach it with the right angle. Now you have spoken about patience. Patience is key not to hunting but it can also be used for ambushes." She said, watching Jinx wondering what she thought of the dark wolf so far.

Jinx nodded and returned a smile as the smaller fae promised to succeed. Watching Amatis take her position, she then headed towards the shrubbery where she would conceal herself as she waited for their prey to make a move. Her light eyes were fixed on the burrow, as Jinx was ready to assist Amatis if the rabbit was to outrun her. Snow began to fall from the gloomy sky, not that it phased the faes in the slightest. Eventually a rabbit cautiously appeared, its small head and sniffling nose emerging from the burrow. The huntress noticed another hare appear from underground. Amatis successfully made a strike, though the huntress didn't pay much attention and instead darted for the other rabbit that was spooked and sprinted ahead, away from Amatis and closer to Jinx's position. Her powerful legs and high stamina carried her forwards at a fast rate, the distance between her and her prey becoming less and less. Without hesitation, the yearning fae snatched the rabbit in her jaws from the ground and instantly made the fatal move, shaking her head quickly.

Not very far from where she originally was with Amatis, she returned with her kill. Placing the rabbit's lifeless body on the ground, Jinx looked to her training partner with a pleased expression on her mask-like face. "Nice work." She replied assuringly, accompanied with a gentle smile. "You reacted with perfect timing and kept the wind on your side. We seem to make a good team." She added. The pair had now caught two pieces of prey and so needed one more, since that was the request from the Alphess. From the warrior's performance so far, Jinx had high hopes that she would be able to take on a larger prey animal. The ambitious fae started to wander, her eyes and nose working together to locate another source of prey. Something larger that required more skill to hunt. Lowering her head to the ground, Jinx scented a trail of hoof marks in the snow. They were quite fresh, however the deer that made them was likely a fair distance away. Raising her head again, she looked over at Amatis. "Let's follow these tracks so we can catch our final piece of prey and hopefully impress the Alphas with its larger size. Once we're near the herd, we will separate the weakest from the others and target that one. This is more a test of teamwork. Like before, you go first and I'll be right behind you." Jinx nodded in the direction of the deer tracks, confident that they were going to do well.

Having captured the first rabbit, and successfully crunching its neck she turned towards where Jinx sat. She was about to go over, when another rabbit appeared in pure panic and raced straight towards where Jinx lay. Amatis had been blocking the other way so the rabbit had no choice but to run the other way. She saw the bushes jump as Jinx grabbed the rabbit and gave it a noteful death. They had two rabbits, which was pretty good to say so in the least. It would only feed maybe a wolf or two but she wasn't complaining. She was glad that Jinx had been able to make the catch, and watched her trot over with her kill. Setting hers down on the ground she gave Jinx a bright smile. Hearing the compliment the small fae smiled at her, and gave a nod. "Thank you, you did an excellent job." She said in return, looking to the rabbit at their paws. Hearing the rest of her words, her ears flicked and she nodded. "Of course, we do make a good team. We did quite well." She added on, glancing to the falling snow as if just now realizing it was there. The scent of fresh deer was in the wind, and it was quite strong. While it was fresh, she knew just from how the tracks had laid they had moved quite quickly. Looking to Jinx, seeing she had already begun to move Amatis got to her paws and quickly followed. Pausing as Jinx did, she gave a grunt to her words. "Sounds like a good plan. I think we make a good team, this will be quite easy for us." She said before taking the lead, making sure to keep upwind and keep an eye out on the trail. The scent was musky, and as she followed it she kept an eye out for anything that could be hidden in the snow. It seemed they were the only ones to find the trail, which didn't bother her at all. She was hoping to impress Jinx, by being able to track and keep herself effectively moving. "When in combat," She said after a few moments. "It is always good to keep light on your feet. With your small size, you are built with strong legs to keep yourself moving. Use them to your advantage." She said, hoping to give her a lesson as they trotted. The closer they got to the herd, however the quieter she became. She wanted to be successful.
