Pack Meeting Begins

 

* Shukie took in what Fianna had to say and first answered her last statement, “No, I’ve not crossed his path yet.” as she spoke she focused her gaze upon Kwa`ani.. “Have you seen Calder, Kwa`ani?” She had yet to puzzle out the rock formation. “tomorrow I’ll take a look at it myself when it’s light enough to see easily.” Her gaze went back to Fianna, “Well done, Fianna.” Now what did the
* Shukie scamp want to see her for, that was the most curious thing, and Kwa as well it seemed. She’d be on the lookout for him in the coming days and or weeks. As Shakira spoke, “Excellent, Shakira. Yes, I’d like to get a pack hunt going in the next day or two at the most. That’ll save search time. Until then, keep tabs on them if you would but remain well out of sight and perhaps even
* Shukie mask your scent with a mud bath to avoid the winds carrying it.” She nodded to Kwa`ani but didn’t give her any instructions just yet. “Well done, Shakira.”
* Fianna dipped her head to Shukie’s words, glad to have at least been a bit enlightening, ifnot just the bearer of more mysterious tidings. She perked up as Shakira spoke of Dall sheep, remembering hunts past of those creatures. They loved the rocky cliff type terrain. She had heard Kwa`ani ‘s joking question about Calder when they’d been alone, and saw her curious gaze now but she avoided answering because she wasn’t sure what to
* Fianna call her feelings on that subject. They couldn’t even truly become friends yet due to the circumstances, so how could she understand if it could be more?
* Shukie stood and squared her gaze upon Shakira. “I may not be seen much over the past weeks and months, I’m still well aware of what all goes on. You’ve shown in words and actions that you have learned what is expected of a WolfSpirit. You’ve spoken of family. Is it still your desire to become one with WolfSpirits?” This was not a light question to be answered, yet one which must be
* Shukie asked. “what is your reason for joining our family?”
* Kova swung her tail behind her but when the call to a gathering seemed to come in order she would rise to all fours and straighten herself appropraitely. She would look between Shukie and then to Shakira, ehr eyes bright.
* Kwa`ani perked when Shukie spoke directy to Shakira realizing what was apaw. As Kova moved she nodded with a happy smile for seeing the fae, her tail thumping.
* Fianna perked as well, her thoughts on Calder fading as she focused on one of her newer friends. She was glad Shakira had chosen to stay, and she k knew the fae would make a good pack ate.

* Shakira nodded quietly to the words of the gathered, listening intently to the various offerings. When she heard Shukie address her, she was not prepared, having not expected such a question to be ask so suddenly, she paused to think through the only answer she could manage. “Since the very first meeting I sat in on here in the territory, I’ve wanted to be a part of this pack, be a part of the unity I’ve seen here and the
* Shakira family that has grown together over the years.” She answered a little breathlessly.
* Kova would look between Shukie and Shakira, her hues began to widen with excitement and the proceedings.
* Shukie nodded to Shakira’s response. “there is much to be learned yet, to which I’ll see to in the coming weeks.” She paused for a bit, “Words are easily spoken. It is in the actions one takes or doesn’t take which is the truth being told.” She gazed to each of the wolves present before looking back to Shakira. “Once a WolfSpirit, always a WolfSpirit. For even should your paws take you
* Shukie elsewhere, we are family.” This is no light step you are taking, it is a life long commitment to pack, to family that have come before and shall come after. Learning of the history of the WolfSpirits as time goes on that you may share it with those who seek to join us in the future.” She paused again, when she continued, “As Beta, and acting Alpha in Atraya’s absense, I welcome
* Shukie you was Shakira, Wolfspirit. You may introduce yourself as such to any you meet.” She let the words sink in before giving a howl of welcome to the newest member.
* Fianna would feel her heart swell for another member joining their ranks. It hadn’t been too long since she’d become a full member either. She looked forward to hunting and acting alongside her. With that in mind she’d raise her muzzle and offer a welcoming howl well as a stamp of her paw, remembering her papa and brother, it was up to her to add the stamp.
* Kwa`ani yips and howled when Shukie and then Fianna did so, adding her own deeper tones to the chorus, front paws tamp tamping on the earth.
* Kova her hues fell to Shukie and then to Shakira. She couldn’t help but feel her chest swell with pride at the fae and for the fae. She’d been a long time member here already, in her heart, and she’s proven herself time again with her dedication to the pack and to the family she wishes to join. Very deserving indeed!
* Shukie settled and then leaned over to nuzzle Shakira, “welcome to the family, Shakira!” she whispered into the fae’s ear before shifting back. “A little impromtu however it was time and well deserved. We’ll see to getting one of those sheep you’ve found in the very near future, a celebration hunt!” her tail wagging.
* Shakira howled until her throat was sore, the excitement of finally being a member of the pack, a true full blooded member of this pack that had so openly welcomed her so long ago and still welcomed her now, was almost overwhelming. She nuzzled into Shukie in a true embrace, every emotion she couldn’t find words for pushed into that one action. “Thank you, Shukie. I swear, until my very last breath, until my heart ceases
* Shakira to beat, I will not let you or the Alphas down. I hope to be the best I can be for the pack.” She said quietly, her voice thick with emotion. She nuzzled each of the other wolves in turn before they departed for the night, grateful for their presence and for their various notes of congratulations.
* Kova swung her tail quickly behind her and she would add her voice to her families, howling happily for the new member among their fold! What a joyous time to be alive, and the addition would do them well! “Congrats, Shakira! Welcome to the pack!” she couldn’t be happier and she was so excited to have Shakira among them.
* Shukie smiled softly not having expected the show of affection, tail wagging. “As long as you continue as you have, you will show the decision was the correct one.” her eyes shimmered in the moonlight, ivories showing from beneath her dark lips. “glad to have you as family, Shakira.” Nodding to Kova as well, “Soon, a celebration hunt!”
