A M O U X
Ẏαḱїмα ♀His direct tone was intense, hard, unlike Aki's soft, docile, soothing tone. I winced, shifting my body, my stomache curled. Lykaios spat in my face, and with a flash of his teeth and a growl erupt from his throat he pushed forward. Straight for me. Aki couldn't hold him back any longer, she wasn't as harsh, or any sort-of beast like Lykaios was.
The strong, desperate alpha lunged for my throat. Growling like a rabid dog on steroids, he limbered up and prepared. His eyes growing mad with anger and disgust. Quivering I readied myself for the hard blow, and possible death to come. With a flick of his tail, his body lurched forward, in a thrusting motion. I shimmied my body to face him in the proper direction, he scoffed and ran at me once more.
I jumped over him, leaving my soft under-belly vulnerable for fangs to make an incision. Instead, his muscular body proved to be too slow. Too slow. I saw my chance and of course took it. He knelt close to the ground, too tired to chase me any more. Aki, horror filled eyes, started to head for a bush.
To hide. Of course, Aki being my younger sister, I had to protect her. This demented wolf would not "claim" Aki as his own. Aki was too young anyway, but this wolf saw otherwise. For pleasure he wanted to take her as his own. With an upright tail, anger washed over my face as well as abhorrence.
I snarled, flashing my dentures. I assailed forward, the thought of killing this wolf was repulsing, even if it was this macabre. Lykaios desperately whined, barking for plea. I gave no pity to the brute.
Almost an instant he flailed to all four pillars, bounding to grasp my neck in his jaws. He nearly succeeded. I gaped and acting on impulse I dove under him. I holted to a stop and jumped up. Scowering he yelped as I jumped on his back and bit the nape of his neck, I held a tight grip until his body stopped moving.
After Aki got over her "shocked" faze we were back on track. Her tail was curled under her, her ears flat to her head, and a soft moan bellowed from her chest.
"Whats wrong, Aki?" I asked with concern. "I don't like violence Yakima, I-I just don't- can't, I can't stand it." She admitted with worried eyes. I tilted my head, "I know you don't, but I can't afford to loose you, Aki. Ever." I reassured her with an unsteady smile.
She came closer, licking me on the cheek, "Thanks, I must've not realized how defective that wolf was. I'm glad you were here."
I nodded a bit with every new word that came from her maw, then smiled when she finished. "I'm here for you, stick together, forever." My smile grew wider with compassion.
My tail stood evenly with my spine as we treked through the mighty wood again. Birch trees jutted the soft landscape as if bestowed from the sky automatically. I nearly blended with the trees that surrounded us, but Aki stood out like a hawk in a flock of geese. Her pure alabaster canvas was aesthetically pleasing, her fibers dense and shaggy, yet soft and smooth. Her tinted irredescent optics a stunning silver. At moments she almost looked blind.
We pushed on, scents of many coming to our noses. Including dried leaves, pine needles, bunny fieces, and the tender, appealing scent of elk carcass. I heard Aki's stomache make a guttural sound behind me. "I guess I'm hungrier than I thought." She rasped.
I nodded and then swayed my head back to the scent trail.
When we found the carcass it was smothered in unfamilarized wolf scents, quickly grabbing ahold of a leg I tore it off. Aki bit tenderly on the shoulder blade. "We need to hurry, Aki, we'll be a snack to other wolves if we don't get out of here." She nodded, pulling on the piece more vehemntly.
Before I knew it I found my self ripping another part off for my own, and maybe extra for Aki's sake. The rump was tender, and sweet on a doe, bucks' weren't. Luckily this was a young doe. Once I made the laceration, I started running. With my two pieces in my mouth, and Aki capricious, she bounded with me as far away from the carcass as possible.
My long lean legs caught up with me. I ran faster. Aki barely kept up with my pace, but as long as she wasn't straggling we'd be ok.
Blood trickled down the sides of my phisque, smeared my muzzle, and with every new fissure I bled out. A smirk appeared on Damix's face, revealing blood-struck teeth. KeyStone yelped, then whined as Damix turned around to deprive his exsistence. All I could do was... watch. I was to fatigued, and broken. I couldn't do anything to save my best friends life.
I quietly cried to myself, which I was good at. I had so much experience because my life was full of too much violence.I snapped back to reality and winced as Damix grappled the nape of Keystones's neck. Damix paused, turning around to observe my movements. He smiled evily, then with one sharp twist he snapped Keystone's neck.
Damix sprung to his feet and ran off to the bushes, like a coward. I shuddered, my eyes hovered to the direction where my friend lay, Keystone is finally at rest. I couldn't have done anything to save him, but now I'll keep blaming myself...I didn't even try! Hot wet tears ran down the sides of my cheeks. I gradually got to my feet, wincing with each new movement, staggering, I walked to where my friend's limp body lay. I nearly fell to the ground beside him.
The regular jubilant scent was fading from his still-warm-body. Butterflys danced in my stomache, I lowered my head to my paws. I closed my eyes for a couple of minutes, realizing what just happened. "I can't let you go, Keystone..." I trailed off, loosing concentration. "Don't go." I said unsteadily, bleak depression washed over me.
My eyes shot open. I laid close to Keystone one paw on the side of his chest. His body cold and stiff, unwelcoming. This didn't happen, I thought hard. It...it didn't!
I looked at his disfigured neck, his bruised body, his broken legs. I looked away.I had to, I couldn't stand it. My stomache churned, the butterflys must be spawning because I became sick without notice. My ears drooped and a frown bestowed on my face for what would seem an eternity.
I had to leave, I had to get away. I ran as hard as I could, but broken bones didn't help my speed. Only decended it. I pushed forward anyway, pain creeping up on me. I could've fallen to the ground simultaneously, but didn't, I could've laid down and died then and there. But didn't.
The brisk breeze that had solemnly came without notice was convincing. I was on the brim of dieing of a heat stroke, or my mind was playing tricks. I couldn't tell. Aki was a pleasure, she didn't look like anything, she seemed fine. Enough.
I sighed whiskfully, Aki stared at me with concern. "You okay sis?" I closed my eyes and my ears gradually came back and I tilted my head.
I breathed in. "Nah, don't worry Aki. I'm fine, just..." I trailed off and Aki finished."Worn out?" I sighed again, my eyes coming open. "Yeah."
She approached me, her tail aligned with her spine. Her phyisque rocked forward. As she walked she spoke.
"We both need to get some rest." She looked up at the grey sky with distant eyes. "It's getting dark anyway. And for your sake especially". I only nodded, looking up to notice a cave hidden in some bushes. I shifted my head and motioned for the cave, Aki followed.
I lifted my head, my nose seeking scents but found none. I entered the cave, plopped down, and before I knew it, was in a deep slumber.
It was probably somewhere close to afternoon when me and Aki dozed off. Well, I'm not sure if Aki did or not, she was pretty shooken up after what happened yesterday. Not saying I wasn't but, she more than me.
Aki, naturally was still sleeping. She normally was asleep before me, but still asleep when I got up the current morning. We usually had a routine going, but today didn't seem like one of those routine kinda days if ya know what I mean.
Still, there I was half awake, and drowsy eyes holding me down. I felt miserable, alone me killing that wolf and another I felt sorta sick that I actually did do that. My stomache quenched then recoiled. Scrub, rinse, repeat. It almost never stoppped.
I stumbled towards a small puddle that dipped shallow into the landscape right in front of the cave about two feet out. I almost plopped my nose and maw straight into the water that lay below me. Nearly drowning myself. I wavered my tail high above my spine in alert as I was spooked by two new rival wolves, or they looked like dogs.
My lip came back into a snarl, revaling my canines and dentures. Neither two backed down. One was a light brown mixed with black and furled with ash. Her canvas was startling, yet in perspective, aesthetic. I was guessing the broad shouldered brute next to her was her mate. Or brother. He matched her canvas just right, but his face and legs were unique.
He had pure white socks leading up to his shoulder then fading into ash and then mixed with charcoal, and white specks. His face told no signs of urgency, it was...Expressionless. I looked back over to the she-wolf, well, dog. I couldn't tell. So I guessed dog.
I was startled by the young female's voice, her ears tilting back, almost coming flat to her head. "We mean you no-n-no harm. P-please, don't hurt us." Her tail curled between her legs and her physiqe shivered.
I relieved my stance and just looked at the too. Finally wavering my head and coming closer to them. "What brings you, dogs, here?" I asked suspiciously.
They turned to look at one another. Then the male spoke, his deep tone seemed to rattle the earth. "This is our territory, and that happens to be our den your friends lying in." I huffed and replied. "That is my sister, and since when has a "dog" ever claimed territory in a wolf pack's territory."
I sat down, not wary of these dogs anymore. I half laughed at the though of them actually thinking they claimed territory here. I was interrupted by the male's voice again. "Why should wolves have any more right to this land as we do? Your a dog to some exstint."
I nearly rolled over laughing. Blurting bits and pieces of words from my maw. "Dogs are far weaker than the average wolf, even if you think you could claim territory. Ha, you small pathetic looking bunnies are nothing compared to a wolf." I scoffed.
He sat down and his mate soon followed. "We got off on a rough start-" Just then Aki came out of the cave, her eyes looked droopy. "W-whats going on?" She yawned, her ears folding back and her mouth coming wide open to reveal long canines. She probably looked menicingly to the dogs. "Hi, I'm Monk and this is my mate Yoshi." He bowed his head to Aki and Yoshi just looked at Aki like she was an intruder.
"I wouldn't be staring at my sister." I glanced over at Yoshi. Her eyes shot towards Monk. His eyes turned towards me. "She isn't staring, but examining. We have neither seen a wolf as pure as your sister." I looked at Aki.
"She seems rare." Yoshi commented. "Quit stepping off the trail."
-Again, A M O U X isn't finished, nor Katka. I assure all it will get finished, but I still need to edit and configure, and come up with more ideas. ^^
