It was nights like these that Lapis was most fond of; a cool breeze ruffled her fur as she sat upon her haunches, reveling in the pillowy grass that cushioned her form. Before her stood the lake within Night Shade's territories, vast and magnificent in all its glory, reflecting the stars above as if it were a mirror, not a single ripple present to ruin its beauty. It felt so... peaceful, so tranquil, as if time itself had stopped for a single moment. As if there was nothing wrong in the world. Alas, Lapis knew better; the world was full of corruption and inconsistencies, plagued with many evils that hid themselves in every lurking shadow. But perhaps, just this once, she could pretend that that wasn't the case. Because looking out at the sky full of twinkling stars, how could you believe such a horrendous claim?
Once upon a time, she had heard that each star was the embodiment of a past spirit, their soul sent to the heavens above to guide those still walking among the living. With a sigh, Lapis gazed up at those many stars with a sense of longing. What was it like to look down upon the world from so high up? She imagined it to be quite whimsical. She couldn't help but be jealous of birds at times like these; they knew no chains. They were so unrestrained, so free. Perhaps some day, she too would grow wings and see through their eyes. "Until then," Lapis whispered to no one in particular, solitary words ushered her thoughts aloud as she gazed upon the scene before her with an odd sense of comfort. "I suppose this will have to do."
TAGS: N/A WORDS: 288 NOTES: Open thread for Lapis to maybe meet some of her packmates! :D
It was another one of those night where Onyx could not sleep, and instead of lying restless in his den he stood up and walked out. nights like this brought back memories for Onyx, some where nice and some where just ones where he did not want to remember because then those memories would take him back to his family. His family wasn't an easy topic to talk about, it was complicated and that topic just brought hurt to him. Nights like these reminded the young alpha of the cries, the cries of suffering wolves as they died and the cries of mourning wolves as wept for their lose. It was nights like these that brought him out to clear his head, the moon was shining and the breeze was just perfect a tad bit cold but it wasn't anything he couldn't handle, in fact the breeze felt fresh against his thick pelt in which he had welcome with a smile on his maw. His bright yellow eyes scanned his territory, he had always loved new leaf it brought a bit of color to his territory not like leaf bare where everything would be covered in snow.
As the male wandered of he let his paws roam freely as he started to head towards the lake, something about it mesmerized him and the moon was out and shining it was just a perfect scenery. He didn't know he would find anyone until he stopped seeing his fellow pack mate Lapis enjoy the view of the lake and the sky. He waited a few moments before stepping out of the bushes revealing himself. "The moons beautiful tonight isn't it?" he spoke as he made his lean body towards her.
Lapis hadn't noticed the male's approach. She blamed it on the atmosphere, the lulling charm of the night sky and the silent song it sung that filled her mind with fluffy thoughts. As fluffy as thoughts could be for her, that was. Onyx, Alpha of Night Shade, the wolf who offered her the one thing she'd never had before: a home. She appreciated the gesture, although as it was now, they were a family of strangers. Wolves who banded together to form a pack, yet even so, they barely even knew each other. Normally, Lapis wouldn't have trusted such a phenomenon. She would've debunked it, distrusting of those foreign to her; it was his eyes that changed her mind. Most would pass it off as nothing more than a simple amber, common in wolves‒ she herself had seen the shade more times than she cared to remember. But Lapis saw so much more than that. An amber flame, crackling with a determination and selflessness that was a treasure in itself, embers that flickered and hid the pain and suffering that must have driven him to such resolve. In that moment, she decided that this was a wolf she could trust, a wolf she would follow into the future, placing her life and loyalties in his paws in hopes of a bright path for the both of them: Alpha Onyx of Night Shade.
The smile that befell her lips was genuine, a rarity despite being rather small and almost hidden in the dark if not for the moon's luminescence. Lapis nodded in agreement, her gaze flowing from the Alpha to the being he spoke of who shone bright overhead. "Indeed, it is." She commented, an odd sense of relaxation and comfort hushing the normally stoic front she upheld. "Do you ever wonder what it's like up there?" The question floated from her lips with such ease, and that scared her. Opening herself up to others... it was hard, and there were times in which Lapis lost sight of who she was and what she wanted. She quickly shook her head, waving a paw as she rebuked her own words. "Forgive me, it was just a silly thought, that's all."
When Onyx leaned towards her, Lapis couldn't help but jump a little. She wasn't used to such sentiments, she wan't used to any of this, but regardless of it all, she found it nice. She found it comforting in a way she had never known before. With the male closer now, Lapis noticed the little flecks of silver that poked out from his otherwise black fur. It reminded her of the sky above, the dark canvas sprinkled with shining stars. Oh, perhaps those wretched sentimental thoughts were growing on her; not that she minded, though. She turned to look at him, a mischievous expression on her features as she rose a brow, "No Alpha duties to attend to tonight?" Lapis joked. She must have been lucky to meet a wolf such as him, to live in a moment such as this.
Everyone had their demons, everyone had something that bit at them and made them lie awake there was no denying that. Everyone's demons were different and he knew all to well when the night came and one was up that they were probably chasing their demons away. The world wasn't sunshine and rainbows like they mad it seem when you were a pup no the world was much more cruel. The world slowly ripped the innocence of one at the seams with no mercy and this is how the world let them demons inside of them. As he watched the female and his words were left out into the open he shifted his amber gaze to the water, the small ripples making him interested as he wondered how it was like for fish to survive. The world was much more complicated to him, he always thought of things and these things turned into what ifs and maybes and if onlys. It was as if the world was trying to tell him something that he did have unfinished business in the air and within his heart that made it grow heavier.
Onyx watched his fellow packmate as she spoke, her tone had trace of wonder and desire to fell much more. And he did to know that feeling. A small chuckle escaped his maw as he nodded forwards her. "Ah yes" he said as he paused. To be bird and to fly or to be a fish and to swim, these were the things that he had thought of as a young pup. "To be a bird ad just fly away, far away.." he trailed off. "To just flap your wings and go wherever you'd like, as if they are no chains holding you back" he nodded. Which was ironic because the forest itself was filled with adventure and wonder, it was open to all. H could leave if he wanted to, let his paws take him roam just like he had in thee past. He wasn't bound to the territory, oh no but yet he stayed.
To him there was never nothing stupid to be said, he watched the female as she had said is it was a silly thing to ask. A small humorous glint flashed in his eyes as he shook his had. "Soon enough you will learn that nothing is to ever silly to ask, I to wish I was a bird so I could fly." He said switching his gaze to her as he sighed. The night was a quite one and he couldn't b move grateful a few slashes in the lake drove his gaze as he saw the scales shine from the moon. "Nope not today" he chuckled, "I just couldn't seem to fall asleep." which brought him to raise his brow. "And you?, what demon is fighting in your head and keeping you up?" he spoke in a questioning tone as he shifted his weight from paw to paw. A small breeze danced by ruffling his sleek black pelt as he shook out his pelt.

So she had no need to rebuke her thoughts after all. Onyx understood the thought, and with the words ushered by the Alpha, Lapis began to wonder if the same thought crossed his mind at some point as well. Perhaps it was contagious, too‒ that joke is in bad taste. She scolded herself, suppressing the giggle that threatened to bubble up from her throat. Ah, but to know that she wasn't alone both in presence and in thought was quite reassuring. The female nodded in agreement with his words, with the invisible wings that they both hoped to fly on high. "I find myself envious of them at times, of the freedom that comes with flight." Lapis admitted, closing her eyes for a moment, imagining what it would be like to feel the wind graze through her fur as she joined the clouds in the sky. It was unrealistic, foolishly so, but a dream she didn't mind believing in. "Though I'm sure that I'll one day be able to soar, even without wings." Not in a literal sense of course, but with the welcomed fresh start that befell her life so suddenly, Lapis' world begun to open up, even if only a little. Well, one paw in front of the other, right?
"Glad to know I'm not alone on that front." Lapis replied, silently wondering if what he told was the truth, or if he only said so to relate to the obscure thoughts that dripped from her tongue. She sighed. Learn to have a little faith now and then, really. Trust was never her strong point, but she knew that it would come with time. Time, effort, and just a bit of trust. Perhaps Onyx was right, maybe there was no question too silly to ask; actually, a few things did come to mind. "Nothing too silly, hmm?" Lapis challenged with a playful smirk, humming to herself as she cooked up her next question. "So Borage Leaves‒ they help she-wolves produce milk, right?" She offered a bit of context before heading straight for the punchline. "Then answer me this: if a male consumed a mass amount of them, would he be able to as well?" The answer was obvious of course, though Lapis couldn't help the grin that plastered itself to her face. Well, maybe there was a difference between silly and stupid.
It must be nice for him to have a break from his responsibilities; Lapis could only imagine how hectic it must be to run a pack. Surely he didn't have a whole lot of free time, so was it alright for him to be spending that precious time on her? Oh, maybe she was worrying too much, a habit she hadn't really picked up on until the tranquility of pack life. Without the perpetual worry of where she would sleep at night, or when her next meal would be, she became much more susceptible to trivial matters like so. Regardless, it was no sin to be selfish every once in a while. Lapis watched the still water as if she expected a ripple to form, but nothing came. So Onyx couldn't sleep either? Perhaps no soul was immune to the bewitching nightmares of the past. Hmm, what was keeping her up? "Change, I suppose." Lapis admitted with a sigh. "The life I'm living now, here with you and the others, it's... it's so different from what I'm used to. Like night and day, really." The soft laughter that emitted from her was one filled with nostalgia and melancholy. "There are times in which I wonder if all of this is only a dream, a blissful dream that I'll one day wake up from."
The young alpha had one wondered what it would've been like to be someone else, it seemed like someone else had it better. But to someone things might have a different perspective such as like a small fish. A well feed wolf might think it's just anther small skinny fish while another wolf that is hungry might think that the skinny fish is just enough to get him by. Oh yes how wolves were the same but yet everyone had different thoughts and everyone was indeed different. A small sigh escaped his body as his eyes grazed at the stars, the shining light reflecting his white and silver hairs that were scattered here and there. If light was not eminent he could've been hidden in the shadows for he had such a dark coloration of pelt. "Freedom" the male nodded, he found that ironic for the forest was huge and they weren't bound to the forest they could leave whenever, or at least his pack mates could. He was bound by duty, but this wasn't a chore for him. No running this pack was a honor and above all his pride. If he were a bird where would he go? There was to many places to go and to be. But if he were a bird he would stay by the water, something about the smell of an ocean and the sounds of the crashing waves on rocks seemed to make him calm. He was cool around the water ore or so calm. He nodded towards her, "One can hope can they not?" he said offering her a smile. He could sense something about this female, it looked like she was a bit hesitate..?
"Well what can I say? I like to agree for the most part" And that was not a lie. Onyx was the kind of wolf to offer shelter to a wolf, he wasn't the kind to run off someone in need because that was just his nature. As an alpha he couldn't be. He liked to know about his pack mates, he considered them family because that what packs are. Packs are a band of wolves trying to make it together and for that he became an alpha to lead because he knew there would be wolves out there who needed a place to stay or needed a ear and he would give it to them in a heart beat. But that didn't mean that Onyx was gullible and naïve, oh no Onyx could tell when he was being played, he was the one to stand up for his pack because for his pack he would give his life physically and mentally. "Nope nothing to silly" The male said not away that the female was about to com up with a snarky remark. As the female spoke he couldn't help but burst into laughter, she had a funny sense of humor. This female had jokes on her. "Well you and I both know that answer" he said slowly coming down from the laughter although a humorous glint was sparkling in his eyes. "You sure do know how to crack a joke " The male said a small smirk landing on his maw as he watched her.
Change. The male was all to familiar with change. It was change that changed his life completely and to this he could relate with the female. "I see" the male said his tone becoming low and serious. "I understand what you mean" He was born into pack life so he couldn't relate to how it was becoming apart of one, he imagined that trust didn't com easy to her as it did to him, at least that is what pack life taught him. To trust his pack mates and for they would trust him because he was leading them. "It's all about trust Lapis "the male said using her name, "You joining this pack might feel weird and different because there's so many of us. but you see Lapis.." he said trailing off . "A pack is family and I understand if you have your doubts but let me tell you this, if you need anything you can come to me" He nodded offering her a smile.

Hope. A mysterious thing it was, able to worm its way into the hearts of so many and shine a brilliant light upon the souls of this world even in the darkest of hours. A phenomenon that pulled others forward when nothing else remained; just a little bit of hope could go a long way. Such an idea, while maybe naive and childish, was inspiring. And that was what Lapis saw in her Alpha's smile, a hope that would carry Night Shade alongside it into the future. She returned the gesture, her grin somewhat awkward and lopsided as it was quite a foreign expression to plague her features, though it was there nonetheless. One definitely could hope, yes. For the time being, then, maybe she would put hers in Onyx, in the light that would guide the pathway for her and the others who followed him. "One can," Lapis agreed. "and maybe that's all they need‒ all we need."
Onyx stood by his belief that there was no question too silly, and even with the the laughter that soon accompanied that statement, Lapis knew his words were true. Perhaps it was the kindness and open-mindedness implied in such an opinion that made it so endearing, so believable even if she didn't think it to be at first. As silly as it sounded itself, it was wise in its own way. Unconventional maybe, but wise nonetheless. "Thank you, thank you, I'll be here all night." Lapis announced with more dramatics than needed, as if she were addressing a crowd. I'll be here all night, and hopefully every night to come. She thought to herself, reveling in the view of what she now called home. It was an odd feeling, the want to protect that view and the others who shared it with similar eyes. "But who knows, perhaps it might be possible in the far off land where wolves can fly on wings unbound by the weight of the world." The statement was rhetoric as it was humorous, and while Lapis intended it as a joke and knew the truth of the matter, there was a small part of her heart; the child in her that believed maybe, just maybe, such a strange yet wondrous place might exist.
It was nice to know that she wasn't alone on the thoughts that plagued her mind, the worries and insecurities that kept her up at night, even if she wouldn't show or admit it outwardly to anyone other than the Alpha, at least for now. Knowing this was a wolf she could trust, Lapis found comfort in the sympathy that she normally wouldn't otherwise. Onyx was right, the world was built on trust. Without it, things would have collapsed much earlier. Of course. She was a fool, wasn't she? All this time, the answer stood right before her eyes: her pack, her family, they were the wings she so desperately longed for. "Thank you." Transition was difficult, it always was, but this time it was different. This time, she had others to support her. She was no longer alone, and that thought itself was enough to keep her warm. "I appreciate the gesture, more than words alone can convey. So if you ever feel inclined, know that trust is a two-way street." Such honest thoughts felt foreign on her tongue, and she couldn't help but feel a bit flustered. To hide it, the statement that followed was spoken in a much lighter tone that, while a bit mischievous in itself, held no false promises. "What I mean is‒ I'm here for you too, if the Great Alpha of Night Shade ever needs to release the demons that keep him up on nights like these, or any other night, really. Lucky for you, my humble kindness isn't exclusive to matters such as so."
He didn't know if it was the night, the view or the conversation he was having with the female that made him calm. Yes indeed we could all hope but it was those wolves who held on strongly to the word hope that got hurt thee most. It was because in their minds they had an expectation and hope was such a great but dangerous word and feeling. Hope was something he held onto strongly because h hoped his siblings were out there but if he were to be wrong he had merely wasted his time on home. And hope was a gamble that many did not wish to put their chips in and play with, but the few that held onto hope now they were genuine wolves. Hope could drive one to certain believes and certain lengths because hope was not just a word, hope was a feeling. Some might say a faith, maybe a religion even. He nodded towards her staying silent for a few moments his tongue playing with thee words he had not yet said. "In times like these, yes we must all have hope. It would bring the trust in one another out and it would make it easier to Delete repeated word
Survive. His mind raced with thoughts, because all of this was just surviving. What he was doing was surviving and in the end it was survival of the fittest. It was such a rash and blunt saying but it was true. Every wolf in the forest cared about their survival, but when it comes to an alpha. A good alpha does not think about himself first he thinks about his pack first before he even thinks about himself. As an alpha his pack would come first and all the decisions the alpha makes is for the better of his pack not himself. Being an alpha was more than just power, instead of thinking about just him he needed to weight out all his options and think about them long and hard before even deciding what to do. He smiled as he shook his head, his eyes looked around, "Ah yes the crowd is loving it" he said his head gesturing towards the fish that swam in the nearby lake he couldn't resist a smirk as he muffled back a bark of laughter at her. "And what say you? Another round of jokes?" He said chuckling. "If I had wings they'd be pink" he said clearly joking around. H couldn't help but imagining a world, another realm where wolves had wings and his were pink. It was a crazy thought but his imagination had taken flight off of her words. It was true, perhaps there was a world were wolves would fly.
As a young alpha he wanted to reassure his pack mate that he would be there, after all it was his duty to lead his pack to success, not failure and what good would it be to have a pack where not one got along and no on entrusted one another, it would not be a pack but something far worse. A battle, and he could not wish for another war to break out. He felt a small smile of relief fall upon his lips. What he said was true, he had said it from his heart because he did care about each and everyone of his pack members. H would always b there for them and always back them up no matter what. It was an unwritten rule of an alpha, and he was there to make sure each and everyone of his pack mates knew that if they ever needed anybody he would be the person to go to. "Anytime Lapis, you know where to find me" the alpha said in a low tone. His ear perked as he heard her offer an ear to whenever his demons had kept his awake, a smirk landed on his maw as he spoke. "That is if the demons have not yet mad me crazy"
Trust, hope, all these whimsical words that were thrown around only proved just how different her life was compared to before Night Shade, before Onyx. Lapis silently nodded in agreement, taking his statement to heart as she closed her eyes for a moment, nostalgia flooding through her as she reminisced on the past that felt as though it were worlds away. A piteous, troublesome woman broken in both heart and spirit, perpetually wandering in a world of darkness void of resolve. If Lapis could go back and reveal to that wolf the future that fate held in store for her, she'd have spat at the idea. Her past self didn't believe in light at the end of the tunnel, and even now, she had yet to adjust her eyes to such bright and promising dreams and ambitions, doubtful of their dazzling splendor.
Lapis' gaze followed Onyx's gesture to the lake and its many finned inhabitants that created ripples and wakes as their nightly activities ensued. Their agendas held nothing of importance, surely they could squeeze her into their oh so busy schedules. "At least the crowd can't complain. So, I suppose that's good enough." Lapis noted with a shrug, the tiny smile on her face growing as Onyx's chuckles and muffled laughter graced her cinnamon ears. Imagining the male with brought pink wings sprouting from his back was quite amusing in itself, and when the softest of giggles bubbled up from deep within her, Lapis froze for a moment. How long had it been since she was able to laugh like this? Recollecting herself, she acknowledged the absurd idea with an impish grin. "How very fashionable of you, Onyx. I didn't think you to be that sort of man, but... hmm, yes, I can picture that." The wolf who flies on wings of an unforgettable pink, what a sight that would be. Spurred on by the moment, Lapis continued her playful jests. "Beware, oh hapless foes of Night Shade, for our bold and lionhearted Alpha flies on valiant pink wings; he'll strike down any who stand in his path‒ all will fall before his unfathomable sense of style."
Such reassurance was daunting just as it was comforting, if it was possible for two polar emotions to coexist. Lapis briefly wondered if it was a mistake to open herself up to Onyx, to display the thoughts and emotions that displayed a vulnerability that would've been seen as a weakness among those Lapis had been among before. She wore a mask to conceal that in which she feared to show, and slowly but surely, that mask would soon be removed. The strangest part of all was that she had no regrets. "Demons make quick work of those who are weak." Lapis stated matter-of-factly. "So trust me when I say you have little to worry about."
TAGS:Alpha Onyx WORDS: 473 NOTES: sorry this is late ish;;
When was the last time that Onyx talked to someone? He couldn't recall. He smiled towards Lapis his new found beta. Although his had no prior knowledge to what she was getting herself into, Onyx himself could tell that she would indeed be a great Beta. Something that was missing was a beta, the old pack had one it was his father but after his father had passed away there really wasn't one. So he was putting his trust into her as he believed she was doing the same with him. "Nope I don't hear them complaining in fact I think they want more." He said with a sly smirk plastered onto his maw.. Nope he definitely wasn't complaining since it was a really long time since he could recall having such a long conversation with another wolf. And interesting conversation that was as well. Onyx let out a fake scoff, "Only the best for such a great and mighty leader as I." He said standing up and shifting his weight on his paws before sitting back down his tail sweeping the floor back and forth in a small rhythm. "As for only the ones who wear pin have the true power" he said with a humorous smile on his maw, a humorous glint in his eyes as well as he shook his head clearly he was joking. A black manly wolf with pink wings?! He'd be a joke but it was something to imagine, it was hilarious even. "I can already see my enemies fall to their paws because their eyes cannot stand my amazing pink loveable wings!"
His ears perked as he listened to her speak about how demons make quick work of those who are weak. Weak wasn't something he wanted to show to his pack mates much less his enemies. A small sigh escaped his mouth as he nodded. "Well I definitely hope that is true what you are saying." he said with a smile. Well it was true, if he wasn't strong then why would he be running a pack? The world was such a strange place.
The crowd wanted more, huh? Lapis knew it was a joke, but even so, it was reassuring. Humor had never exactly been her strong suit, so it was nice to know that she wasn't doing terribly. Now that she thought about it, maybe it was because she never had anyone to tell jokes to, or anyone who'd bother to laugh. "Looks like it can't be helped, then. I'll have to come up with another round of jokes for next time." It was a mystical night, and while that in itself fueled her, Lapis felt the weight of the day on her droopy eyelids. Yes, humor would have to wait till next time. "What's that saying‒ leave them wanting more?"
Oh, the Alpha was much more of a goofball than Lapis had expected when they first met. It wasn't a bad thing, not at all. The opposite actually, she thought as she found herself laughing at his outrageous proclamation. Everyone had another side to them, of course, and Onyx's was all the more welcoming. Feigning some outlandish pain, Lapis groaned, flopping onto her side as she dramatically reached a paw towards the heavens. "Oh dear gods above, have mercy on my soul as I perish before the oh-so-powerful King of Pink." If Lapis had wings, she thought they might be blue. As silly as it sounded, it was still a step up from Sir Salmon. "Be careful out there Onyx, you might get mistaken for a flamingo."
Lapis had no doubt in her mind that Onyx was strong; she'd seen that much when they first met, and she wouldn't have chosen to follow him if she didn't believe in that. Everyone had their demons though, and while she was sure the Alpha was no exception to that, she knew that he would be able to overcome such things. He was their leader after all, and even if he began to falter or even fall, they would be there to hold him up. She nodded, muttering a soft "I do too."
TAGS:Alpha Onyx WORDS: 339 NOTES: it was good omg!! no worries uwu<33
Onyx smirked as he watched her, ah yes it did look like the crowd did enjoy her joke as he to was very much enjoying an entertained her jokes. He closed his eyes for a moment as he sighed opening them back up. "Ah yes it looks like so but you must keep them wanting for more" He laughed. "Well I suppose that they must come back for more next time because the show never ends" His tail swished back and forth . nd that was true the world was like a never ending carousal, it was after all a cold , cold world for the weak ones,
"Kind of the Pink I am and I will be known for my evil want to make everything pink and my obsession for everything pink!" He laughed. "Imagine me the Lord of the Pink and everything in my lands would be pink.." he trailed off thinking of a world with pink fish, pink water and pink rocks. Oh boy. "I think I would be sick of seeing to much of the color that I would have to retire" he grinned. "Even If I was mistaken for a flamingo they at very stylish and fashionable. So either way, I would bee king of pink or a flamingo!"
He knew his pack had potential and he knew that he had to bring it to it's potential and he had to be the role model for them. Even with a heavy heart and heavy paws he had to wake up very sun rise to right for his pack and most importantly fight the demons that had threatened to make him go insane and never return back. So with this in mind he was very open minded and he was glad to have a promising beta by his side. So he stayed quite enjoying the silent of the night.
A never-ending show, huh? All things considered, Lapis decided that the idea of doing this every night wasn't all that bad. The routine of pack life was slowly growing on her, and to be quite honest, it left a warm feeling in her chest to know that she had somewhere to go home to at the end of the day. She'd spent enough of her life living each day by ear, following the flow of life alongside its many surprises. Settling down, relaxing and supporting a pack sounded nice. Very nice. Maybe I'm getting old. The Beta thought to herself with a smile.
Lapis held back an ugly snort as she buried her muzzle in her outstretched paws, gazing up at Onyx with a glint in her azure eyes that reflected the moon's luminescence. Her Alpha was much sillier than she'd ever imagined him to be; not that that was a bad thing, though. It was nice to see this side of him, that of which held no strict walls of an Alpha's dominance, a wolf who could joke and laugh and smile like any other. "Well then, I expect an invitation whenever you depart for that strange and unsightly land." Onyx would definitely stand out in a field of pink, that's for sure.
As conversation died out and a comfortable silence began to settle between them, Lapis gazed back up at the stars that littered the sky above, a curtain to mask the unknown. It was nice to be able to just lay next to another and drink up the beautiful scenery that the world laid out before them, to spend time with someone you trust, someone who you'd gladly follow up into those very stars above. Lapis closed her eyes, and for a brief, serene moment, she feared she might succumb to blissful sleep.

It was funny he could recall the day he had felt the paws of the grass nearby the water. The land was so cold and unwelcoming it had no scent of any wolf nearby and the fishes were scarce the weather was so cold that it threatened to freeze over the river . He felt so alone but yet he had so much hope in him, this land that he had picked was for a reason, he had fallen in love with each and every part of the lands of his pack. The first night in his new found land he had came to the river and sat there for hours just staring at the icy water, it was glazed with ice but underneath the ice was a slow moving river that had chased the fished away and they had migrated to warmer waters. The meadow was a such a beautiful place as well, during new leaf the fields turned green and it was such an amazing view to see the fields turn back from brown to green. The training fields were vast and brown, it reminded him of his pack where he had learned to fight with his mentor. The brown patches would leave dust on his fur when he had finished battle training and it reminded him of so.
The forest smelled beautiful when it was new leaf, the forest was filled with pine leaves when he walked through them he knew this land was perfect for his future pack. He smiled looking at her. If only there was a fantasy world of it being better and not hard. "You'd be the first wolf I'd take with me" He chuckled as he thought of how long it had been since he had talked to someone else. It had been lonely but know that his pack was getting members he was used to being social.. it was as if things were coming to place finally. The silence was a nice it was awkward in any sort of way and he enjoyed the breeze that would crept by here and there.
"You'd be the first wolf I'd take with me." To that, she smiled. Of course, that land sounded absolutely wretched and Lapis was sure it would invoke the wrath of her own gag reflexes if she were to ever gaze upon its unsightly and monotonous color. But if Onyx was the one who whisked her away and stood there beside her, she wouldn't mind. Not that she'd ever say, though. Ah, am I growing soft? With a hint of sleepiness in her sarcastic words, she retorted, "I'm sorry, but I think I'll have to decline that invitation; the last thing I want is to turn pink myself."
Time seemed to pass by so quickly, and at some point, Lapis lost track of it. It didn't matter though, not really, the time she'd spent with Onyx beside the star-filled lake was worth it. Yes, this was something she wanted to protect. These lands that opened a new door in her life, the wolves who walked beside her in this new and perilous journey. Her mind felt much clearer than it did before, and she had her Alpha to thank for that. Feeling drowsiness weighing down on her, she reluctantly stood. "I'll be off now, sleep calls. See you tomorrow?" It was nice to have some constants in her life, things and wolves that would be there each day when she woke up. Now that Lapis had a taste of such a wonderful world, she didn't know if she could ever let go. Content with the night, Lapis turned to face Onyx one last time before heading back to the dens. "Thank you Onyx, for everything. I... well, it means more to me than you know. So, thank you."
