The low bubble of the nearly frozen creek was the only sound on the wind save for the little heard of deer padding it's banks. A large male with mighty horns, three females, several young ones and an older stag were graising from what they could dig out of the snow. The wind was blowing towards the east so naturally the wolves stalking when be their.
Hidden behind some taller bushes Skaar lay flat on his stomach, head low to he ground, ears back. His gaze focused on those creatures who would swiftly become his meal. His experinced eye took in the lay of the land, noting the features that could be used to get closer and then bring down their prey. His eye rolled to look at Akiailia, She would no doubt be eager to show how useful she could be. Skaar decied to test her instinct to see if she knew exactly what she was doing.
" Which would you hunt? The strong, the old or the young?" He whispered, his tail twitching every so often in excitment, the thrill of the hunt singing in his veins so much he wished he could howl to the heavens with his joy.

Akailia followed Skaar proudly. She knew that she had to have been following a wolf who would soon lead one of the most powerful packs of Halasia. And she was his Beta. No doubt one of the most honorable ranks. She just wished that more wolves would come to be a part of their family soon, and she was sure they would come.
Akailia loved hunting. It was something that she had always been very good at. She was the star hunting pup of her previous pack, until it was overran with evil. She loated evil wolves with a passion that she wasn't even able to hold back. She was also a good fighter. Social skills was her weakness, she didn't communicate verbally very much.
She knew these Elkryn well. And she didn't hesitate to show that. She jumped out of the bushes and pranced around them. The elkryn were the only known prey to know exactly when a wolf was hunting. And with Akailia's playful body language, they went on grazing like no one was there. As she ran around she smelt for the weaker elkryn, the sour smell of bad joints and weaker muscles. Looking to Skaar she hinted him to come out, for the elkryn would be suspicious if they caught his scent without seeing his eyes.

Instead of awnsering him his pack-mate slipped from cover and walked right up to the prey! He growled quietly, trying to urge her back into cover but she ignored him, maintaining a playful manner of moving and the creatures didn't for a second bat an eyelid! Skaar's single eye followed her, flicking between elk and wolf with a confused expression etched across his scarred face.
She hinted for him to come out and he hesitated for a moment before slinking from the bush, his head low, nose close to the ground as his single eye flicked back and forth, scanning the herd. Skaar wasn't a playful creature. While he did at times enjoy it he didn't often indulge and so his movements were slightly stiff. He rolled onto his back however, rolling around in the grass and the herd took no further notice of him. He could smell the weaker ones, knew which ones would be easy to bring own. Which needed to be weeded out.
Padding up to her he nuzzled his nose against her neck, mainting the image of playing. " What are we doing here?" He whispered, a slight whine escaping alongside his voice. Her scent mingled with the prey's in a nt unpleasant manner and he took a moment to seperate the two different smells.

As she pranced among them she was consistently aware of what Skaar was doing. He might have been mad at her for doing so, and she would apologize later if he was. She didn't want him to be mad at her, for she was only trying the easiest way to get prey. There's no harm in that, right?
She watched him sneak out of the bush and prayed that he changed body language soon, because he would be trampled if he didn't. She was beginning to worry until he began to roll around on his back. A small grin took over her face and she soon let her tongue sprawl out. She could tell that he was smelling the same scents that she was when he began to come over to her. Although he was still tense, hopefully the Elkryn wouldn't notice.
She touched her nose to his muzzle in return, "Apparently you haven't hunted Elkryn before. A wolf has no chance in capturing any part of them if they hunt normally. You need to gain a respect for them as they gain a respect for you. Then once you decide which Elkryn you want to eat, the herd as a whole, will not fight you. Although, the one you decide on will, for it is their life in danger. So we decide who we want, smelling around, and once we turn into 'hunt-mode', they will know. And that's when we'll know if they respect us."
[/i] She looked at him and pushed him playfully, "But Skaar, you need to respect them too. That plays a very important role in this."[/i][/blockquote]

A black wolf, by the name of Ki-Ai Gikalov walked slowly by herself. She had been walking, or mostly running rather, for a while and now tired. She saw in the near distance a creek with plenty of trees and bushes to lay by. She picked up her pace a little although her eyes were drouping. She didn't get much a good night sleep last night and couldn't wait to lay down.
As Ki-ai approached a nice looking tree she started to couch down, her belly fur brushing against the ground. She plopped on the ground and leaned against the tree enjoying herself and listening to the sounds around her. Although it was nice somtimes being by herself, she stilled wished she had company. Someone to talk to and play around with.

Maintaining the image of playing with his pack-mate Skaar growled playfully. The elk seemed to pick up on the tone and ignored the sound almost completely. The large wolf's tongue hung out slightly, his pant's the only sign that he disliked being this close to the prey without actually attacking them.
It seemed whatever pack she had been with before was wise and led well. How else could they have found out this technique to hunting such creatures? When she pushed him playfully he yawned, a slight whine escaping his throat. " All prey is respected. Without prey there is no wolf. I have hunted these before but only in a larger pack. We startled the herd and split into groups, one group chased an elk untill they grew tired then another took up the chase, letting the other group rest. That way we exaust the beast while maintaining our own strength. When it can run no more we kill it." Resting his muzzle against her's Skaarp ushed her nose down gently and used the oppertunity to glance at the nearby elk. " Have you chosen?" He asked just as a scent came to him on the wind.
Wheeling his head he glared at the lone black wolf who had taken to resting nearby under the shade of a tree. The elk likewise spotted her but didn't make any movement to escape her. Obviously she wasn't as tense as he and wouldn't spoke the herd. This however presented a problem. Did Skaar finish the hunt or did he deal with this latestest incursion into his territory. Nuzzling Akailia he pointed with his nose in the wolf's direction. " Company... Perhaps she can help us bring down one. We should speak to her first before choosing one to blood our jaws on."

It was always a benefit for wolves to touch one another on a hunt. That way their scent could become one, and it would be harder for the Elkryn to know when and where the wolves were coming from when it came to hunting. Akailia loved hunting Elkryn, it gave her the best adrenaline rush. Even compared to hunting other larger animals. There was just something about them that connected naturally to a wolf.
She was glad that he had been in a pack that respected the Elkryn. He obviously had a lot of experience with Elkryn, just as Akailia had. But suddenly a scent of weakness had filled her nostrils, distracting her from the Elkryn for a brief moment. It led her to a wolf. A younger wolf that entered their territory. The wolf didn't seem threatening, and Akailia actually got a decently good feeling about the wolf. A wolf with potential.
Skaar pointed the wolf out to Akailia, her eyes darted over. The wolf almost looked like her, except with a little more gray to her. And no yellow eyes. "In a hunt, the more wolves .. the better. But it's your call, Dragga."
[/i] She trotted over to the woods after touching her nose to his throat, out of where the Elkryn were. She stopped as she arrived a fair distance away from the new wolf. Looking over to Skaar, she waited for his decision.[/blockquote]

The wolf sighed. The was a light breeze that swept through her fur, and she enjoyed it until sudden alert washed over her. Her ears perked up and her nose was twitching. She smelled the familair scent of others of her kind. More wolves. Was Ki-ai trespassing in someone else's territory? It didn't really occur to her that she might be. The wolf waited there for a while, not moving. She payed attention to any sign of wolves getting closer. Her eyes then darted to a nearbye tree, where she quickly saw rustling. But it was just a chipmunk. Ki-ai hoped these wolves weren't hostile.

Gazing upon the sky, eyelids blinked solomnly looking at the fluffy white clouds that sat peacefully in the sky. They sat still, very still, as if they were on a painted picture. Large ears flopped backwards as boredom krept onto the small white male. Letting out a grunt he stood up and brushed himself off from any dust that may have clinged onto his fur. He really did hate getting his coat dirty, after all. A few noises in the distance brought him back to Earth and he took his gaze to the source of the noise.
His bright teal orbs starred at a small opening between some trees and shrubs. There he caught the faded figures of two wolves. One was a male, while the other was female. He still couldn't see properly, considering the damage in his right eye so he quietly started to walk toward them. Now catching the scent of some prey nearby he had an idea of what they were doing. They were looking at something though, other than the deer figures around them. 'another female?' Paparazzi asked himself quietly as the figures finally came into perfect view.
'interesting' he thought to himself, gazing at the three strangers. They looked like they all wanted to kill something or the same thing for that matter. But he felt like chatting with someone at the moment anyways, so instead of walking away Paparazzi walked closer. "Hey!" he shouted darting his eyes back and forth from the vegan creatures to the strangers, hoping they didn't run away. For if they did, he'd definitley be in one big heap of trouble.

Considering his options Skaar swung his large head from the elk and then back to the new wolf who had stumbled into his territory. Best to assert dominance now and ensure that the new-comer wouldn't be any trouble. After all bringing down even a sick elk was a hard business and Skaar wasn't in the mood to be exhausted from a hunt only to have to fight to keep his meal. Padding after his pack-mate Skaar was far less subtle in his approach. While Akailia was fairly soft in her thread Skaar's paws fell heavy.
With his single good eye leering out, glaring at the tresspassing female he padded across to sit a fair distance from her, while his features for the moment were not threatening his lips were set close against his fangs, his gaze grim. " Well met... but you are tresspassing on my lands" Skaar let the wolf speak up, normally a creature would either state their intentions at this point, or beast a rather swift retreat or become hostile. That final option was rare but it had happened before and Skaar had the ...well the scars to prove it.
"Hey!"The sound rang out loud, illicting a growl from Skaar's throat. He glanced at the elk and noticed they were on edge, moving closer together and becoming less playful and animated in the way they ate. Almost mechanical in the movement. Irritation flickered across Skaar's features, drawing his lips back to flash his fangs. Skaar's ear's were flat against his skull as he moved to put himself rather protectivly between the new male and Akailia. " You are tresspassing." Skaar snapped. It was rather easy to tell what he thought of these latest intrusions particuarly since one of them had probably made gaining a night's meal all the more difficult. His ears were pressed flat, his tail rigid and his hackles raised. " Did your father never teach you about startling the herd or is stupidity merely your primary talent, curl-tail?"

She kept her bright yellow orbs on the lupa through the brush. She didn’t seem like a threat to Skaar’s land, but a wolf could never be so sure. Akailia always seemed to learn the hard way when it came to things like that. She didn’t like when wolves changed their real personality just to become a part of a very powerful pack. And she knew that this pack a very real potential to be the strongest pack there is in Halasia. She would defend it with her life and teach the wolves of the Balace, if they didn’t already respect. She could tell Skaar wouldn’t mind if she did so. There was just something about him that made her want to become Drappa, but then again she didn’t think she deserved it.
Skaar began to growl at the intruders, there was another wolf that had crossed their borders. Her eyes averted to Skaar, he was in a very threatening position. She understood where he was coming from, if these wolves were planning on attacking it was better to be ready. But something told her that they were more afraid of them. She didn’t let her hackles raise or her teeth show. She would give these wolves a chance in her mind, even if Skaar wouldn’t give them one in his. He was simply doing what a dragga had to do. She let him get in front of her as her ears perked forward at the new white wolf. Hey! Her eyes stayed on his movement, wide luminescent yellow orbs upon her black pelt. Did your father never teach you about startling the herd or is stupidity merely your primary talent, curl-tail? She didn’t believe the curl-tail was necessary and was tempted to nip at him. Her ears slid back to look at him with a look of now-that-wasn’t-necessary. But she wouldn’t nip, that would be too disrespectful. Instead she whispered, “Skaar, what if they want to become part of our pack? Please do not fight them, I’m sure that’s not their intention even if the one did scare the Elkryn. We can always try again.” She spoke in a very calm, soft tone, attempting to calm him down just a bit.

Ki-ai stood up straight trying not to show any weakness. She could tell the wolf coming toward her was dominant. He got close and told her she was trespassing. Ki-ai immediately noticed the scars and could tell he meant business. I'm sorry I wasn't aware that I was trespassing. I'm a loner and is just exploring the land. Ki-ai stated. Sometimes it was hard being a loner. No one really to talk to and probably in more danger. She wished she could be in a pack eventually. The wolf suddenly spun around quickly. Apparently there was another trespasser. Ki-ai got a glimpse of the other one. Her attention was then averted to the elk. They noticed the commotion. Two trespassers at the same time. This probably wasn't a good thing. But Ki-ai waited for the next move.
