Zephyr stirred in his den as he listened to the light cracking of twigs and leaves outside his den. He normally would have been alert although he could tell by the scent it was deer. Not many, only three, two doe and a buck. He waited as they slowly moved through the lands, knowing that the doe were probably pregnant due to the fact they were with a buck he would leave them be. It was best to allow them life so that more life would come to Pyrvanthros lands and so that he wouldn't scare them off to one of the other packs. Zephyr sighed as he exited his den, the deer had finally passed and were at a safe distance. So now he could head off on a nice relaxing day. As he moved through the forest his mind went to his job. As a hunter he was supposed to provide for the pack. And some may not understand why he had let those deer go, but he had a clear method to his not-so-madness. He was allowing more prey for the soon future. For his job, he had to know when prey was birthing, when it was the best time to hunt it, what technique to do and much more. To hunters-in-training it may seem difficult, but as you grow as a hunter it all becomes common sense. Zephyr had been taught everything when he was young, he was well-rounded in all skills although he majored in hunting. It all came natural and it was the most simple for him. He calculated things great and he managed to be a successful hunter. He wouldn't have actually complimented himself before, but now he felt he needed encouragement in order to feel like he really deserved this rank. He trusted the Alpha's although at the same tome he felt that there were better hunters for this rank. He gladly would help any wolves that needed it and he would gladly be there for his Alpha's when they needed him. He would fulfill his job as Lead Hunter and he would do it with confidence. Whether he had to fake it or it just came naturally.

He had made up his mind, and right around when he zoned back into his surroundings. The sound of a waterfall told him that he was near water. And before he noticed where it was, he was plunging into it. When Zephyr's head went below the surface of the water he began to struggle and force himself above the water. But he was just weighing himself down and struggling was making it worse. So he closed his eyes and calmed his body, so that he could channel the strength to pull himself above the water. Once he did he looked around for shore and swam quickly to it. Pulling his soaked body out of the water. He coughed up the water that had been inhaled in his struggle and looked around to see if any wolf had noticed this. He sure hoped not, he had gotten lost in thought and didn't even notice his surroundings. He sighed and moved into the sun to dry off and warm up. Even though it was Spring, the water was still a bit chilling and it was not a pleasant surprise. In fact, it was quite scary for him at the moment. Luckily he knew how to swim, or he would be laying with the rocks on the bottom of a pond. He lay down and closed his eyes, the sun felt great on his back as he lay in the soft grass. Memories of not to long ago, laying in the grass with Paislee, had filled his mind. And for some reason, he hoped that she would run into him on this, supposed to be, relaxing day. It started with the deer taking forever to pass in front of his den and then he went plunging into the chilly pond. Now what, was he going to run into a new enemy also. His ears were perked, listening to everything around him. The only sense he wasn't using was sight. He relaxed as he was well alert. The fear of making an enemy in the pack had made his skin run cold. So he wanted to be ready for everything.

[I lost this post once, so I was not in the mood of getting the table again, hope you like it :3]

Sunlight was the feeling Paislee woke up to. The warmth filtering through the entrance to the dome-shaped cave she called home spread across her back and made her eyelids flutter open. She sighed, still tired, despite having slept the best she has in days. She took a deep breath, and suddenly, a familiar scent washed into her nose, which twitched with a new found delight. Had Zephyr been nearby while she was asleep? Or was it just the faint scent from when he had walked her back to her den a few weeks before after they had met at Violet Sanctuary? She smiled at the memory of them returning from the field of beautiful flowers. Abruptly, she scrambled to her feet, as if an invisible force was pulling and pushing her to get out and find her best friend. Wonderful ideas spread through her mind, branching in many directions of how she would greet him, if she could find him at all.

She exited her den, heading out across the lush land that had finally been freed from winter’s cruel grasp. Snow no longer coated the ground, and spring was in full bloom. Flowers were bursting with color, trees were beginning to grow back their leaves to cover their bare branches, and the grass had risen back from it’s yellowed, matted-down state and was revived in full greenery. Life always came back in spring, one of the many reasons why Paislee loved the season. It was a time for second chances, for new life. She briefly wondered what the new season would bring. Hopefully, new members. Maybe another mandatory pack meeting? Another chance to get promoted?

Paislee shook her head solemnly. There was no need to be wondering about such a thing, as that topic was what had gotten her all depressed just weeks before. She banished said thoughts and continued on her merry way, maw turned up into a wide smile, eyes bright with happiness, and a little spring in her step that couldn’t be described as just “walking”.

She found herself at the pond a little while later. Halcyon Pond, was it? She couldn’t remember. Oh how silly, it was to imagine that she couldn’t memorize all the pack territories and their names. She scoffed at herself, rolling her eyes, but her delighted grin never left her face. It was when she heard the splash, loud enough that she knew it couldn’t have been on purpose. It sounded clumsy and unintentional. Her eyes quickly snapped up from the rocky bank, and she stepped out of the forest line that turned into the small clearing that surrounded the pond. Tilting her head, she looked to see what could’ve caused the splash. But she didn’t see anybody—or anything, for that matter—rise up to the surface. A flutter of panic unleashed in her chest. Should she dive in and attempt to save the apparently drowning creature? She saw a body through the clear water, and it appeared to be…

Oh no.

No, no, no, NO.

”Zephyr!” Paislee screamed. She clambered onto another rock, her claws scraping against the stone loudly. She climbed higher and higher until she was above where Zephyr’s body was lying under the water. She dove for the edge of the flat boulder, nearly jumping in, when she finally saw her friend surface. She jumped backwards, hiding from his line of sight, due to her higher ground. She watched as his lean body swam to the shore and then coughed up the water that had apparently ended up, unwelcome, in his lungs. She held her breath as he looked around, his chocolate eyes searching for others who had witnessed his less than graceful swim. Guilt flowered in her chest and took over the panic that had been there moments before. How long did the whole ordeal last? Seconds? Minutes? Hours? It felt like years.

She continued to silently wait, not even daring to breathe, and her icy orbs trailed after him until he was finally no longer in view. Her lungs ached, but she insisted she wait a few more seconds after he was gone, before she finally let out the breath that had been burning her lungs. Gulping in air, she collapsed from her half crouch and laid on the rock, basking in the sun’s warmth for a minute. Then she got to her paws and bounded around the edge of the pond and sniffed out Zephyr’s trail. Time to find her best friend.

She found him not far, in a grassy clearing. Her blue eyes took in the sight of him, lying in the soft vegetation, with his own eyes closed. His nose twitched, and his ears followed in suit, so she knew his other senses would be on high point, as he no longer relied on sight at the moment. Still in the tree line, she softly padded behind bushes and plotted a wicked plan. She knew it was bad, and he would probably be upset as he had just been through a terrifying experience of near drowning, but she couldn’t help herself. The mischievous side of her had come out to play, and this new version of her ever-changing personality wanted to cause some trouble. Zephyr was damn-well lucky that she wasn’t feeling anything more than just some light hearted fun, otherwise he would be regretting not being more careful and keeping an eye on his surroundings. With that, she quickly and quietly leapt up into a bounding stride, and pounced on her friend. She was by far smaller than him, so her weight shouldn’t have effected him much. She placed both her front paws on his shoulder and prodded him gently, while one of her back legs was bent without putting any weight on his hip, and the other was on the ground beside his stomach. She grinned wildly, her childish side bursting with glee.

”Gotcha. You better apologize for scaring the shit out of me back there when you just about drowned.”

[OOC: 1) So sorry for the wait! 2) Zephyr has granted the permission to powerplay ^.^]

Gentle steps. || Quiet Voice. || Beautiful thoughts.
We were born to be real not perfect...

The White Knight


"Speech" + 'Thoughts' + Actions

Zephyr had been laying in sun happily, his coat getting warmer the longer he remained in that spot. Although something didn’t seem right, he felt like he was being watched, the strange feeling creeping up his spine and making his nose and ears twitch and strain to catch any sign of another presence. He listened carefully, birds chirped, small rodents moved around the lands making little squeaking noises and the waterfall continued to drip water into the pond. Then he heard it, a twig snapped and the rushed movements of a wolf were coming straight at him. Zephyr didn’t have time to stand up or anything though. Instead he braced himself for attack, the weight landing on him and he felt paws on his shoulder and the wolf simply prodded him gently, one paw on his hip and the other on the ground next to his stomach. Zephyr’s tense body went calm as he caught the scent of who was on top of him. He smirked and turned his head to look up at the fae. Now looking into her eyes innocently as he listened to her speaking. "I'm sorry..." He spoke innocently, yet also a bit playful. Although he was truly sorry, it was extremely scary for him, yet watching it couldn’t be any better. But now they weren’t very even, she only was scared once and Zephyr was scared twice. "I don't believe that is very fair on my half, after all I did experience both you scaring me and almost drowning," He said as he looked up to her. This is different, he thought. His best friend was back, just as he hoped. Yet he had figured something else bad would happen, this couldn’t be bad though. He had Paislee to talk to now and he could have yet another great day hanging out with her. Maybe they could go for a run, do some training so that he can help her gain her goal of a higher rank, or even just talking like they had done last time would be nice. He wouldn’t tell her that when he had fallen in the pond that he had been thinking about her, she was occupying a lot of his thoughts lately and he wasn’t completely sure why. Maybe it was just because they had become best friends, or maybe it was because that Zephyr liked her more than a friend. But if that was the case then he would need to calm down. This would only be the third time meeting her and he could determine that he got close to wolves way to quick. Maybe he should start distancing himself? 'No. Distancing yourself from others is never the answer.' He pushed that away and stuck with the fact that she was just his best friend. Yet he wouldn’t mind getting closer to a wolf in the future in that way. Whether it was her or any other wolf. In fact, he did want a mate, although one that he just met in Winter at a training session. That is not long enough to bond to a wolf in that sense. He refocused his attention on Paislee at this moment and wondered what she thought of him. Does she ever think about that stuff? Not that it would make a difference, but he also wondered if she had a wolf in mind for a mate already. Maybe she has been talking to them ever since she came and they became extremely close, even closer then best friends. Zephyr just needed to butt out of her business and focus on his for now. He smiled up to her as he listened to the water and birds in the sky. It was a beautiful day and he would be spending it with Paislee.

[OOC: I'm lazy, so no table, but this is so flipping late, I figured it doesn't even matter. I'm so so so so so so so so so so so so so so so so so sorry for not posting sooner, I've just had zero muse and all my time was taken over by homework and such. <3]


She rolled her eyes at his reply. "Fine, your wish is my command. I'll be your faithful servant for the day to repay for scaring you once more than necessary or whatever you wish to call it. So, your first wish?" she asked, stepping away and smiling. Lowering to her haunches, she awaited his spoken command, ears perked and eyes bright. She wondered what the day would bring with him. Their last meeting was very fun indeed, laughter and playful jokes filling the air, and the--dare she say a little romantic...?--walk back to her den afterwards.

She was hit with sudden realization that she and Zephyr might someday be something more than friends. Could that possibly happen? Was she being absurd for imagining such things? She shook her head, returning the smile to her face. She wasn't keen on the idea of putting her feelings out there, unless she was positive he felt the same way. Her face lit up, impossibly, more. "What if we played a little game? Like, Truth or Dare?" she asked, eyes dancing mischievously. A childish idea, sure, but nobody was around to see. Besides, this was Zephyr! He was the keeper of most of her secrets, why not throw a few more into the pile? Plus, this could bring them even closer, even though he is by far the one she's closest too. A few stupid dares and some silly and maybe embarrassing secrets weren't going to affect much.

[So crappy, but I feel the severe need to get this up. Next one will be much faster and better, swear it! I can't tell you how terrible I feel... So sorry.]

[It's alright, real life comes before RP. I'm also feeling a bit lazy with getting my table so I will just leave this one without it :p]

Zephyr sighed and looked up at the sky as if he was in thought. He then smiled as if he had an idea and looked at Paislee playfully, "My first wish is..." he paused and looked away making it a bit dramatic. Just to turn and say, "Nothing." He chuckled and watched as she quit smiling for a slight second, seeming to be lost in thought, Zephyr wondered what she could possibly be thinking of. Then her smile returned and she spoke. "Truth or dare, hmm? Alright, I will go first." he paused, allowing her to speak if she wished to, then he added. "I chose truth." He smiled and waited for his question to answer. He remembered playing this when he was traveling with his buddy. It was a fun way to get to know each other better or just have fun. Although the mischief in Paislee's eyes made him choose truth, just to be safe. He wondered what she would choose though. Something silly? Or something huge? He would just have to see. Paislee wouldn't force him to share anything he didn't wish too, so he felt alright with playing this game. But what if he asked something that she got upset about? He was always terrible at thinking of dares or questions and one wrong word could mess things up. Paislee was his closest friend in the pack and he worried about messing that up.

She rolled her eyes at his wish. "You little jerk, I thought you were going to say something like bring back the head of a cougar or something like that. Although," she said, tilting her head and looking up in thought. "That has been on my bucket list for a while now, truth be known. Maybe someday the valiant duo of Pai and Zeph could bring down the mighty beast, eh?" she joked. After he said he'd go first she said, "Truth or dare?" to wish he replied with 'truth'. She couldn't hide her troublesome grin. "I'm gonna start off really classic here," she stated. "If you could do anything in this world, what would you do?" she asked.

Sure, it wasn't exactly what she wanted to ask, which was how he truly felt about her, but she was saving that for later. Were he to answer with something she didn't like (which she wasn't sure how she'd feel whatever he said), she didn't want to ruin their day. A blossoming feeling of trust and hope filled her chest as she gazed at him. She knew that he'd always be there for her. Her past was filled with ghosts that haunted her everyday of her life, but she knew Zephyr would be the one to fight off every single one should she ask him of it. And again, another realization hit her. Was that being just friends? It seems like a big task, to help deal with somebody's demons and their possible emotional instability, and she knew that Tatsu, despite being her friend, probably wouldn't want to get too involved with that kind of thing. Chiara might, but that wasn't necessarily being Paislee's friend, that was just being her alphess, which was her job to protect the members in her pack. Aside from Malachai, she had met nobody else, and she barely knew the now Elite male as it was.

So, it came down to the question of whether or not Zephyr had feelings for her... And if he did... did she feel the same way?

Zephyr chuckled at Paislee, she had some fun dreams, she wanted to bring down a cougar. Where he, he was happy with what he already has. He nodded to her when she mentioned them taking down the beast, "That would be quite fun," He smiled as she asked him his question. "Anything in this world..." he said softly, lost in thought. What would he do? He had never thought about that before, maybe he would go on a fun trip with his closest friends. Or maybe he would use it to help his pack. No wait. He knew what he would do. Memories flooded through his mind of his past. "At first, I was going to say something on the line of a fun adventure with my closest friends, but now that I thought of it. I would go find my sister, just to make sure that she is alright and alive. Or maybe go back and save my brother. I'm not sure, but I would give anything to see my siblings again." He looked at her with sadness clear in his eyes. Then he sighed and swallowed down the emotions, "Truth or dare?" while he waited for her answer, he would think of questions to ask or dares for her.

She sat down as she listened to him. She watched him, her eyes soft. His answer was deep and touching, it made her a weird mix of happy and sad. She frowned. "It would be nice to see siblings again, huh? Although, mine would probably attempt to kill me, unfortunately. I... I helped kill one of them..." she murmured.

She ignored his question, for truth or dare. "Hey, Zephyr, can I ask you something...?" she asked. She sighed. "I'm sorry, I just... I need to know how you feel about me... Because... as crazy as it sounds, I think... This is more difficult than I imagined... I think I like you, Zephyr. As more than friends..." She didn't meet his eyes, staring at her paws. Fear crawled up and down her spine. It was so weird to put her feelings out there, deliberately going against her oath a few minutes before. She pawed at the grass absentmindedly, hoping the strangeness of this meeting would go away. It was strange to her anyway, almost awkward. She felt terror seize her as she thought maybe he wouldn't feel the same way. Oh crap, what had she done?

Just a friendly reminder, we want to keep the site as realistic as possible. So any mentions of something human, in your case the word "God" is not allowed. Please edit that out and be on your merry way with this adorable thread. =D

Zephyr lowered his head sadly, “I’m sorry Pai,” As if it was his fault, he couldn’t help it though. He was apologizing for something he had no control over, but sometimes he just feels like it is his fault for not being places to stop whatever happens from happening. Even though it is too late to fix things. Even though he was the one to mention siblings in the first place. But he looked back to her when she didn’t answer his truth or dare and instead asked if she could ask him a question. He nodded his head to her in question. Zephyr tensed up getting nervous the second she mentioned wanting to know his feelings towards her. Right away his mind started swirling. What if she wanted to know so that he didn’t get to close or what if she just was curious? He listened as she started to sound nervous too, then she admitted something. Something that made him calm down immediately. His questions had been answered. Her feelings were mutual to his. She admitted that she liked him too. “That is great to hear, I thought I was the only one who felt that way,” He chuckled trying to lighten the mood, sensing the awkwardness filling the air. Then he smiled and looked at her, happiness filling him as he spoke his next words, “I like you too, as more than friends.” It was as if a huge boulder had been lifted off his back. It felt good to finally speak what he had been thinking all along. And now… now he just wondered what was next. Would their relationship fall apart or would it grow stronger? There was only one real way to know.

[Late and crappy, sorry but I no longer have wifi so it had to be rushed when I found some]
