15. What is your favourite DeviantArt memory?

One day I had was extremely rough, and I logged on to DeviantArt. When I did, I was greeted with a lot of kind-hearted words from others. I went straight from tears to a smile.
A little while after her daddy left to do some business or whatever daddies did, Diamond ran over to the window and popped it open, and ran over to the shed. She was gonna teach that mean wolfie who was boss! The small purebred went over to a corner of the shed where the wood was weak, and after a little while of digging she managed to make a hole big enough for her to squeeze through.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Diamond would have woken Sepsis up… If he had been sleeping at all recently. This was his hell. To be treated kindly and pampered for the rest of his immortal life? What a cruel hell indeed. As Sepsis turned around from his pace he stopped dead in his tracks as he found that he was no longer alone in the enclosure.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Diamond marched up to the wolf. "Now you listen and you listen good, Sepsis!" She puffed out her chest, trying to look bigger, and older. More mature. "I'm boss and you listen to me!"

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Sepsis was silent for a moment. Had he the remotest sense of humor he would have cracked up laughing at her. Instead he looked around for a second, listening to see if Henry was around. Once he was satisfied that the alpha was not around he bared his fangs at the yappy dog. “You listen here you bite sized snack. I’m the wolf, I’m the creature who could eat you in one bite. So you listen to me and get the hell out of here.”

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Diamond's eyes widened for just a second at the wolf's snapping, and she responded with. "No! I'm boss! ME! I'm Daddy's little girl and that means you have to listen to me!" Had she any sense, she would've turned tail and ran, but little dogs always had something to prove.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Idiot dog. Sepsis was indeed an omega but that did not mean he would take such treatment from something that by all rights should be his snack. He knew he couldn’t eat her or anything though. Purge would be most displeased after all. “Well your Daddy isn’t here right now, is he?” Sepsis sneered. Sure, it was a bluff. But hopefully it would get her the hell out of his den.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
"No! But that doesn't mean you don't have to listen to me!" Diamond squeaked, not afraid of his threats. "I'm not afraid of you!" She marched right up to his muzzle. If he was quick he could snatch her and gobble her up right that second.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
“You should be.” Sepsis snarled, lowering his head to be at her level, then attempting to grab her maw in hers. It was a move that superiors used in wolf packs- basically a way to tell the other one to shut the hell up. It was a harmless move mostly… Though in Diamond’s case a decent portion of her head and face would end up in Sepsis’ mouth.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Despite herself, Diamond let out a squeak of surprise as Sepsis closed his mouth around her. "Your breath stinks!" She whined, shaking her head, trying to get free of the wolf's jaws. "Lemme go!"

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
“Schtap squirming and I will.” If he was going to let go it was going to be on his terms, not hers.” He tightened his grip slightly, but was careful not to break the skin.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

"Lemme go now! Ya stupid head!" Diamond demanded, her wiggling only increasing. "Lemme go!" She was gonna start screaming if he didn't.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Well crap…If he tightened his grip any more he would draw blood, and therefore leave evidence of he having harmed the alpha’s daughter. He let go, but pushed her down once he did so to try and establish that this didn’t mean she had won this battle. He was still stronger and could beat her down at any second.

Sepsis hated that he’d come to the point in hell where he was trying to be dominant over a damn yappy dog.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Diamond squeaked and wriggled under his paw like a worm. "Let me up!" She demanded, kicking her short legs as she tried to get up. "Let me up you stupid head!"

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Now this was something he could do without leaving a mark on her. His ears were alert for the sound of the door, ready to stop at a moment’s notice if the alpha happened to return. “Not until you submit.” He snarled. “You’re lucky I’m even giving you this chance.”

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Diamond squirmed intensely. "No! I'm boss!" It was supposed to be the other way around! He was supposed to be submitting to HER! "I'll never submit! No!"

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Sepsis pressed down harder on the tiny little dog, growling down at her. “Do it now.”

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Diamond shook her head. "No! Make me!" She bared her little white fangs, growling.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
“Don’t think I can’t. Your alpha already left for the day, and by my estimation I have plenty of time to figure out how to break you. I may not be allowed to make you bleed or break your bones, but believe me you, there are worse things than death.” Nearly all his life he had lived as an omega, he had accepted it. But this little rodent expected him to bow down? To obey? That wasn’t going to happen.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Diamond whined as he pressed down on her chest a bit harder as he spoke, perhaps unintentionally. Suddenly....... she couldn't breathe...... The small dog gasped for breath. "I won't......." She sucked in air. "submit....."

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Well that was easier than he had expected. But then again, Being with the idea of having to face him like this for hours may have been scary even for the yappy dog, as it should be. Sepsis let go of her, allowing her to skitter off if she so wished, waiting for what she would say next lest she go back on her word.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Diamond rolled onto her chest and sucked in air before giving a small whimper. "No one ever wants to play or be my friend." She complained. "Not you, or, or, anyone!" She was so lonely....

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Good. She wasn’t going against her word. She might once her human rolled around again, but at least for now he was spared her annoying yipping. In hearing her little whines there was little sympathy from the wolf. He did not care if she felt sad.  He thought to give her more of a talking to, but in deciding that was unnecessary, choose not to. “True. Now get out of my den.” Snarled Sepsis.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Diamond picked herself up off the ground and left the den as he ordered. Well that was a bust. He was in charge and he made her cry too. "Fine." She squeezed through the small hole and padded a bit away before flopping down on the ground and beginning to actually cry.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Finally. he thought to himself with a snort. Sepsis resumed pacing back and forth after awhile, ignoring the yappy dog’s cries outside his den. What did he care what the bite sized mongrel felt? He didn’t care, by all rights she ought be his dinner. But because she wasn’t, he might as well settle for her staying out of his fur.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
After managing to get a good crying session, Diamond sat up sniffling, and began to pad back toward the shed. Maybe he'd like her better if she apologized.....? She hoped so. She didn't want to be alone here.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Sepsis continued to pace, pawing at his face a little. It’d been more than a few days since he’d gotten any sleep. So he wasn’t feeling at his best. As such, he did not overly notice Diamond’s tiny pawsteps approaching. Even if he had, that being said, he wouldn’t have cared to pay heed to the little piece of prey.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Diamond wriggled through the hole and padded up to Sepsis, trying her best to look more humble and submissive, lowering herself onto her belly. "I'm sorry." She whined.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Sepsis came to a stop as he turned around in his pacing to see Diamond once more in his den. For a brief flickering moment he saw the shadow of a pup next to her. He closed his eyes tightly, willing for it to go away before opening them again. “What’d you say?” He hadn’t quite heard, though he had seen her mouth moving in the brief moment that he had been looking at her.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Diamond pawed at the ground as she repeated her words. "I'm sorry." To further prove it, she rolled onto her back and showed her belly in submissiveness.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
The thing about Sepsis, was that even with such an act of submission, which he was only moderately satisfied about, wasn’t enough. That he had had to establish dominance over a snack to begin with made him peeved. “then get out of my den.” He snarled down at her. He did not make friends easily, let alone when said prospective that was something that, in any other scenario, would have already been eaten.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Diamond whined softly. "I said I'm sorry." Oh well, she deserved it for being such a mean idiot. "Forgive me? Pwease?" She begged anyway.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
“No.” Sepsis wuffed, turning his back on the small not-yapping yappy dog. Sepsis wasn’t much one to forgive. Most of the time he did not feel within the position to feel upset enough to require himself to forgive someone. Most of the time he believed he deserved what he got. But he did not and would not forgive the annoying little yappy dog whom by all rights should be his dinner. What was the point?

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Diamond sighed and finally walked away, or at least tried to. Half way through squirming through her little hole in the wall she realized she couldn't get out. "I'm stuck!" She yipped, brown eyes wide. "I'm stuck!"

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
“You did it just fine the other times.” Sepsis growled softly. “Stop playing around and get out fat ass.” It was rare Sepsis thought he was superior to anyone, but when he did he was not kind. He didn’t really consider himself superior to her that being said. That would imply they were even somewhat the same species. Which Sepsis did not think they were. Dogs and wolves were one thing, but she was a perversion of species.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
"No, for real, I'm stuck!" Diamond squirmed and squirmed, but would not budge, stuck with her rump sticking out on one side and her head on the other.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
“If you don’t get the hell out in the neck twenty seconds I will literally kick your ass out of here.” He snarled.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
"I CAN'T GET OUT!" Diamond finally snapped back. "I'M NOT JOKING. I AM LITERALLY STUCK!" Why else would she be sticking around?!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
She did it before, so Sepsis was still not quite believing her. He waited the allotted twenty seconds and fulfilled his promise to kick her ass out of there. That was, if it worked any how.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Diamond let out a shrill squeak that lasted for several seconds after Sepsis kicked her rear. "OWIE!" She whined, still stuck in the hole.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Sepsis gave her another good kick, hoping that would get her out.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Diamond squeaked again. "STOP! STOP! " He was gonna kick her tail in at this rate. "I want Daddy to get me out!" She squirmed anyway, no use.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
“Then you’re just going to have to shut the hell up until he gets here. Or accept my help.” Either way he was fine. But she would be stuck here for hours if she choose to wait.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Diamond whined. "Can you try a little be more gentle?" She asked, twitching her tail to make sure Sepsis hadn't snapped it. "Please?" She didn't want anymore kicking, but being stuck for hours wasn't fun either.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
It wasn’t like he had thumbs like that human, what the hell was he supposed to do? All he could do was use his jaws. Which meant he had to use them very very carefully. Sepsis grabbed er tail in his jaws and tried to pull her out.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Diamond gritted her teeth as slowly but surely, Sepsis managed to ease her out of the hole. "Thanks...." She said, panting, tail thumping slowly.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
“Now get out.” She’d gotten out before, he was sure she’d be able to get out if she did it the same way as before. “Maybe dig to make it bigger before you give it another go.” He added as an afterthought.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Diamond yipped and began to gnaw on the wood until she had tore away a good chunk of wood and was able to successfully squirm through. "Thankies." She said once she was on the other side.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
He grimaced, wondering why the hell she hadn’t dug at the dirt as she had before. Stupid yappy dog. “Whatever.” Sepsis   said with a roll of his eyes.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
As an after thought, Diamond dug up one of her bones, the biggest one she had, and slid it through the hole. "For you." She squeaked, and walked away.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Sepsis looked over to the bone she had given him. He knew, theoretically, it was the thought that counted. But honestly he didn’t give a shit about the thought. He padded over and tossed it out of his den. “Those are disgusting, I don’t want any of those things."

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Diamond's fox like ears flattened against her head as Sepsis spoke and refused her gift. "Okay. Sorry." She pulled it away and shamefully reburied the bone. "I'm a stupid head......" She muttered.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
“Finally something we agree on.” Sepsis snarled, glaring at his den wall as if it had offended him in some way. This was hell… He was being pampered by a human, and had just had a contest of dominance with a creature that by all rights should be his prey. Was this… What he was supposed to do?

Well… What did it matter what he was supposed to do if he was in hell?

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Diamond walked away, giving up on trying to make Sepsis her friend, for now. And a few hours later, Henry returned. "Grey! got you a treat! You too Diamond." He went into the backyard, tossing a large chunk of bacon at a depressed Diamond, who weakly nibbled at it. And then into Sepsis's shed. "Hey Grey. Want a steak?"

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Sepsis’s ears twitched a little in hearing Purge’s voice. But now he thought about it, this wasn’t purgatory, so was Purge really a fitting name? Well… It’d kinda stuck by this point, so he decided he’d stick with it. It wasn’t like he had another name lined up for Purge. Calling him a demon didn’t seem quite appropriate. He looked up at the meat the human had brought him, sniffing it experimentally. It smelled… Different.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Henry revealed a parcel, similar to the ones from before because it came from the same butcher shop. But today Henry was feeling generous and bought a little something something for his two pets. "Want some steak?" Henry asked, unwrapping the parcel and pushing it towards Sepsis.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Sepsis had not really had much of an opportunity to have cattle in his life, so this smell was new to him. “What is it made out of?” He muttered to himself, head tilted. He then lowered his head and took a bite out of it… Not half bad. This must be something native to… Hell?  Hell flesh was tasty flesh.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Henry sat back with a pleased grin on his face. "Good wolfie~" Alas he did not pet the wolf because the eating rule. He preferred to have all ten fingers, after all.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Ironically enough Sepsis would probably let Henry take away the flesh right from his mouth… At least for now any how.  Things could get a little bit… Different as the full implications of being in a hell that seemed to be paradise. Sepsis licked his lips as he finished up the steak. That was definitely tasty.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Once the last of the food was gone, down Sepsis's gullet, Henry scooted forward and put the wolf's head in his lap, giving him some pets on his skull.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Well Sepsis would be lying if he said that this wasn’t a little pleasant- if not a lot weird. “What a hell.” He sighed, closing his eyes, but not sleeping. Of all the eternal torments to face why did his have to be the one nice one?

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Henry scratched him behind the ear, looking around as he did so. Then he noticed the hole on the corner of the shed. "HOW DID THAT HAPPEN?!" His blue eyes widened as he yelled.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Sepsis flinched, scrambling away from the human as it suddenly barked loudly. He looked to where the human’s eye were trained on. “Hope he realizes that hole’s not even big enough for me.” Muttered the giant wolf to himself. He should have thought to fill that hole up. But then again that wouldn’t fix the damage Diamond had done to the shed when she’d torn it up with her teeth.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Henry got up and stuck his hand through the hole in the wall, gaping. "How did this happen?!"

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
“Wasn’t me.” Sepsis wuffed unhelpfully.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
As if understanding what Sepsis said, Henry yelled. "DIAMOND!" And the Pomeranian walked over with her head bowed. "I'm sorry Daddy......"

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Sepsis watched on in silence, wondering what was going to happen with Diamond now. Probably nothing serious.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
And of course it wasn't, she just received a slap on the nose and was shooed away with Henry telling her no dessert or snuggles tonight. "Dumb dog...."

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Well that was quite the small punishment. Granted Sepsis supposed he had more than made up for it. Not that Purge knew that. Thank god. Or wait… Probably not now that he thought about it.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Henry leaned back. "Looks like I'll be having to go into town to get some stuff to fix this hole..... Sorry Grey." He said, looking back to Sepsis.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Sepsis just blinked back at his alpha, unclear exactly what he was saying in the first place any how.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Henry laughed at himself. "Looking at me, talking to a wolf like he knows what I'm saying."

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Sepsis was attempting to figure out what the human was saying, but gave up. He wasn’t pointing so it didn’t appear to be a command… So did Sepsis really have to concern himself with interpreting a foreign language?

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Henry smiled and laughed more before getting up and going over to the door. "Wanna go outside boy?" He questioned. "Do ya?"

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Open door, that much he much he could understand. While he did enjoy having his own den, it did get a little bit cramped. He padded outside his den with haste, in case the alpha changed his mind.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
And Henry followed and closed the door behind him. Diamond sprung into some bushes, figuring Sepsis wouldn't even want to look at her.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Sepsis glanced in the direction he had heard the bushes rustle. In seeing the briefest glimpse of white fur he looked away. She was hiding from him? Well that was good. Something flickered at the edges of his vision, but when he went to look he saw nothing there. He’d say that was odd… But frankly for him it wasn't

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Diamond decided she'd wait until he went away to come out. She really didn't want to see him right then.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Sepsis, after noticing that Henry wasn’t really making any particular orders, wandered around aimlessly, enjoying the opportunity to stretch his legs. His den was a bit cramped and stuffy. And boring. Who would have ever thought hell could be boring?

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Henry walked over to the bushes and pulled a wriggling Diamond out of them. "Dumb dog what are you doing in there? You'll get all dirty." He shooed her towards Sepsis.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Why exactly was the human herding the yappy dog toward him. He wondered if he was going to have to fetch her soon. That would probably get quite… Messy.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Diamond whined as Henry nudged her towards Sepsis. "He won't eat you Diamond!" Henry said. "He doesn't like me!" Diamond yapped back, though she hadn't understood his words.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
“Gettin’ mixed signals here.” He muttered under his breath, looking up at his alpha. Henry was kind of presenting Diamond to him almost like he did with his other meals. Did this

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Diamond whined as Henry nudged her towards Sepsis. "He won't eat you Diamond!" Henry said. "He doesn't like me!" Diamond yapped back, though she hadn't understood his words.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
… Purge probably didn’t want him to eat Diamond. He started walking away, testing to see if his alpha would be displeased about the wolf walking away from his daughter while he was seeming to try and introduce them “officially.”

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Henry watched the wolf walk away a few steps, then whistled for Sepsis to return, pointing at the ground in front of Diamond. "Grey, back here boy!" He ordered/

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
You have got to be kidding me. Sepsis thought to himself as he heard a whistle from Purge. He looked back to hia alpha and saw him pointing at the ground in front of Diamond. Not at Diamond herself sooo… The human probably didn’t want him to eat her. He padded over and sat down, not making eye contact with the yappy dog. She didn’t even deserve that much of his attention.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Diamond whimpered and whined, trying to walk away, though her master just blocked her way. "What, not even a sniff?" Henry questioned. Being around dogs so often, he could at least rely on that to happen according to animal behavior.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Had Sepsis been able to understand Henry he would have told them that he had already smelled Diamond, and had no interest in doing so again. She was not worth the time of day to him. As for relying on things to happen according to animal behavior… Sepsis was clearly an anomaly.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Diamond, somewhat understanding human tongue, took a few slow steps forward and gave Sepsis's paw a small sniff and backed up right after that. "Is that okay Daddy?" She asked, though Henry didn't look very satisfied.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
“Soooo… What’d you do?” Sepsis asked after a pause, not hearing Henry respond and being unable as of yet to understand human expressions. He did not believe he had to explain himself to Diamond when he asked this question.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
"He said he wanted us to sniff each other." Diamond said, looked at her master. "I know a little human. I can teach you if you want, it's kinda easy after a while."

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Sniff one another? Sepsis did suppose that was a greeting of sorts, he was unaware humans cared that much for their greeting rituals though. He glanced at Henry, wondering if Diamond was just making it up. “If you’re making this crap up I will figure it out eventually.” He said with a level tone, repressing a growl that he was sure even the human would be able to interoperate. He stooped over and sniffed Diamond for a few seconds, then got back up.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
"I swear on my life I ain't." Diamond yipped as Sepsis sniffed her head. "Now is that good enough?" She asked Henry, and when the human nodded as if he understood her, the Pomeranian bounced away on short legs and tiny paws.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
He looked up at the human and saw him nod. He wasn’t quite sure what that meant, but apparently it was good enough. “Seriously though, how did a tiny little thing like you end up in a place like this?” He asked as he saw her bound away. He was curious now.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Diamond paused and looked behind her to the wolf. "What do you mean?" She cocked her head and her ear twitched for a moment.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
“This is hell, what could a pathetic thing like you to deserve a place like this?” Abet it was a nice version of hell, but he still had to wonder.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Diamond blinked in surprise. "Nome isn't a very nice place compared to my olf home, but it's ain't the opposite of heaven." She barked, not wanting to say "that" word.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
“What. Did. You. Do.” He said with short wuffs, the yappy dog getting on his nerves even more. He wanted to know. “And the hell is Nome any way?”

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
"I didn't do anything." Diamond responded. "Nome is a town on earth. Me and Daddy used to live far away until we moved her. I lived in a pretty house, I could hide anywhere!" Her tail wagged as she remembered hiding under the bed, the couch, in Henry's shoes...... She was able to surprise him a lot.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Nome was a town on earth, and this was hell on earth. Got it. Made sense. “You don’t just get here doing nothing though.” Sepsis pressed on, taking a step towards her. He disliked how little she was being upfront with him.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
"I dunno why Daddy took us here. But it's okay, there's lots more doggies!" More chances to make friends. Before she'd only make human friends, and humans weren't as fun.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Lots of dogs on this plain of hell… But this one hadn’t done anything… Well… Maybe Purge had just wanted a pet or something like that. That made sense. Plenty sense. He was pretty sure he understood now. “Oh… I see.” He muttered.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Diamond's tongue lolled and her tail wagged after Sepsis spoke. "The other doggies say lots of snow comes here in the winter! I'm gonna make a big tunnel and Daddy will have to try to find me!" She giggled.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Oh great. She was getting friendly now. Pfft. “We’re not friends you know, but where do you see these other dogs?” He hadn’t seen any others yet… But then again… “Never mind.” He said as he started walking away. It didn’t matter if he saw other dogs or wolves here.  This was hell, it wasn’t supposed to be pleasant. He’d rather not have the only other living creature who could understand him be a yappy dog, but he didn’t have a choice in the matter.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Her ears flattened against her head as he shot down her happy attitude. "I've met lots of doggies." The purebred whined as he walked away. "Some are pretty nice. Do you want to meet them?"

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
“What I want doesn’t matter.” He said, mostly muttering to himself as he said this. “What can you do to make it happen anyway? You might be able to understand him, but he can’t understand you.” At least that’s what Sepsis was pretty sure about.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
"I can unlock the fence for you." Diamond yipped. "Or get Daddy to take you on a walk. I can grab my leash and put it in front of you. He'll understand that!"

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
If this weren’t hell he would be considered about the whole idea of having the gate opened and him wandering around a human territory would really concern him. But he was dead anyway so what did it matter? But he had a feeling letting this yappy dog lead him around would be a bad idea. “It doesn’t matter.” He repeated, looking at the fence. He really ought not be trying to make things better for himself here. Besides. Even if he did meet others he’d just botch meeting them any how. Meeting new people was hard with his… Unique nature.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
"Why does it not matter? You always say that. Daddy could run you over with his car and you would say "it doesn't matter. Why?" Her curious nature made keep questioning him.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
“If he runs me over that’s his choice.” It wasn’t like he could die anyway, this was hell. Even if he were still alive would it matter? It wasn’t like he could die. Except that he had. The curse had run its course maybe? He had no idea.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
"You're a weirdo." Diamond plopped down on her rear with a huff. "It's like you don't care about your life at all." And frankly it was pretty off-putting.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
“Why would I care about my life? I’m already dead.” It was the only thing that made sense. He had been killed by a human, humans were killing machines and he’d been shot by one. It was that simple.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
"No you aren't." Diamond yapped. Or at least his body wasn't. He seemed pretty dumb, like brain dead.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
The yappy dog had already established herself as an idiot for daring to stand up against Sepsis’ might when who the winner was was clear as day. So when she said that he wasn’t dead, he wasn’t buying that for a second. “Just up idiot dog, what do you know?”

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
She frowned. "I know we're not dead." The Pomeranian said. "You're just being silly." The purebred stuck her tongue out. "Stop being silly."

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
“If you don’t stop that shit right now you’re going to regret it once your alpha isn’t here.” He said in a flat tone, staring her down now. Sepsis was not amused, and had no sense of humor. He couldn’t be silly if he wanted to. If he tried to it would look disturbing.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
"But you are being silly! We aren't dead!" Diamond protested, though she put her tongue back in her mouth. Didn't want Sepsis to bite it off.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
“Of course we are, you just don’t realize it.” Sepsis snarled at her.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
At first Diamond flinched, then retorted. "You're crazy. You've lost your marbles!"

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
“And you are an idiot.” How was he supposed to believe anything she said when she was stupid enough to try and claim alpha over him? She was a yappy dog moron idiot. Why should he listen to her?

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
"I'm not very mart but I would be able to know when I died!" Diamond answered, fluffy white fur bristling so she looked more like an adorable fluffy cotton ball than menacing.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
“Whatever.” Said Sepsis with a roll of his eyes, walking off and away from Diamond. This place was going to get boring pretty quickly he was thinking. It was a shame that his only company was this idiot. But it wasn’t like he had a choice in the matter. Nor should he. But still.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Diamond huffed and walked away as well. "Crazy coocoo head." The purebred muttered, and walked up to her paw, pawing at his legs and whining to be picked up. And of course, her master obiliged.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
He didn’t give a damn for the yappy dog’s opinion of him. He was frankly more interested in the human’s den. It looked quite.. Strange. He’d seen these things from a distance but had never actually been this close to one.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Diamond curled up tighter in her master's arms, poking his ticklish neck with her damp nose. Henry resisted laughing, though a few snickers escaped him. He held the dog out from him and looked to Sepsis. "Grey, what you doin' boy?"

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Sepsis looked back to see if Henry was pointing anywhere when he heard him speak. In seeing that Henry had no commands to give, he returned to his examination of the human den, pushing his shoulder against it to test its strength.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Sepsis would realize that the house was well made and solid, as any other human den would be. "Checking out the house, eh boy?" Henry questioned. "Don't start chewing on it!"

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Henry smirked. At least Sepsis had a bit of a brain, it seemed. Diamond would be the type to march up the spout, lick it, decide she didn't like the taste, then lick it again, as if that would change the flavor.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Sepsis then jumped up and put his paws on the window sill, remembering having seen Diamond here at one point. He peered into the window and tilted his head, confused by all he was seeing in there. This, he assumed, was what the alpha’s den looked like. But what was this material in front of him? It was like ice, but not nearly as cold. He licked it experimentally, and was confirmed in his thought. But he still didn’t know what it was.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Diamond squirmed his her master's arms until she had managed to worm out of his grip, and hopped away toward Sepsis. "Aren't windows weird? But you can see out of them and they keep the warm air in, so I like them!" Her tail wagged proudly.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
“Win… dow.” Said Sepsis, pronouncing it slightly wrong. What an odd contraption it was. And what a weird words for it. All these human things were new and surreal for him. It was little surprise that Sepsis thought he was in hell, for the world he now occupied was leagues different than the one he had lived in his entire life. It was like a Twilight zone almost. The words he was to learn would be much like a foreign language to him. A foreign language for a foreign world.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
"It's more like wind-doh." Diamond corrected. "And you can see your reflection in it if you look at it right." She squinted up into the window, and saw her own image, a fluffy white dog with a cute black button nose.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
“This is far clearer than ice.” Sepsis muttered to himself. How did they get the ice to be so warm though? It didn’t make any sense.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
"Yup yup!" Diamond said. "Now you look in the window! Look at your face!" She urged him, wondering what he's say of his own reflection.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
“I am.” He growled softly at her. He saw himself clearer than he had before in the ice. Beyond that he made no comment about his reflection, instead choosing to look beyond the window and into his alpha’s den. His alpha seemed to have no problem with this, so he’d just look in on it for awhile. Which might be a bit, considering that he didn’t know what any of the stuff in there was.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Diamond resisted a whine after he growled at her, and went back to looking in the mirror. "Daddy says I'm pretty but I dunno. Sepsis, am I pretty?" The purebred asked the wolf after primping herself a small bit.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
“Stop fishing for compliments. A tiny mongrel like you isn’t going to get any out of me.” Plus, she wasn’t his type, even if she were his size.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Diamond pouted, and stuck her tongue out. "I am NOT a mongrel!" She was a pretty purebred Pomeranian!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Sepsis did not even bother to give that an answer. Even if he knew what a purebred was he would simply sneer at the idea. There was really no such thing as a purebred, it was a human made construct that held value to only humans. A wolf like Sepsis would not give a damn.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
When he didn't give a response, Diamond scowled deeper. "Stupid head......." She growled softly. She wasn't normally boosted by her breeding but she knew she was far from a mutt.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Sepsis glanced back to see if Henry was watching them. And if he wasn’t Sepsis elbowed the mutt off the windowsill. If he was… Well he’d let the yappy dog stay there for now.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
And lucky for Sepsis, Henry was looking up at the sky, muttering something about the clouds and if bad weather was coming. Diamond growled, baring her tiny sharp teeth at Sepsis.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
“Don’t even think of it, snack.” He growled a little down at her, and yes, indeed calling her a snack.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
She squeaked, and jumped back on the window sil, and reached out her paw and swatted his nose. It was hardly more than a tap, she wasn't exactly a strong dog, but it made her feel satisfied. "My name is NOT snack."

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
“If you think to come into my den again I’ll make you pay for that later.” He snarled in her face. It wasn’t hard, but that wasn’t the point. He had to keep her in her place. But he couldn’t do that while the alpha was around.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Diamond sniffed. "Like I'd want to come into your stinky den." She growled. "You made it aaaaaaaaaalllllll smelly! Stinky head!"

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
“No shit.” Except there was. So of course it smelled bad. Not that it hadn’t before. The walls still reeked faintly of fear from the past inhabitants.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Diamond frowned and bunched up her muscles, preparing to jump safely off the window sill, given if Sepsis didn't try anything.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Sepsis wasn’t going to try anything again, he’d already tested his luck once with the alpha’s daughter, if the alpha caught him… Things would probably go just as Sepsis wanted them to. Defiance against the alpha was punishable by pain. And it was because of that that Sepsis couldn’t do it. Because that wasn’t the point of his hell. He looked down at the windowsill. “I’m sorry.” He said in a whisper.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Diamond pouted as she walked away. "Now you're sorry....." He refused her apology, so she was going to refuse his, snout pointed up in the air as she marched proudly toward Henry.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
“I wasn’t talking to you.” Sepsis sighed, dropping down from the windowsill and laying down as his energy suddenly drained.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Diamond snorted anyway. "Suuurrrreeeee. Then who were you saying sorry to? The demons here in the-opposite-of-heaven?"

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Sepsis was silent in response to her question, his eyes now listless. He was sorry. Sorry for what had happened, sorry that he wasn’t in the eternal damnation he had wanted. And sorry for wanting more than he had gotten. He was just.. Sorry. But that didn’t matter. What was done was done.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Diamond huffed and gave a pouting sound. "Fine, don't talk to me. You think you're better than me but you're not, and I was here first." As if that made her the better of the pair.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Sepsis did not react to that in the slightest. Not a twitch, he didn’t even look in her direction. He would stay like this for the better part of three days… If Henry tried to stir him he would find that not even a kick or a slap would work this time around. One might think of the phrase too good to be true. When Henry had first come across Sepsis he had thought it too good to be true that he had caught something so big. When Henry first realized the wolf was docile and obedient enough to be made into a pet, it had been too good to be true.

A wolf did not become so malleable without first having been broken.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Both Henry and Diamond were unhappy. Henry, because now his docile wolf wouldn't even lift his head to look at him, and Diamond, because she thought he was pretending she didn't exist, ignoring her completely, no matter how many childish insults she spat him.    

On the third day, Diamond squeezed back through that small hole, that Henry had yet to fix up just quite yet. "Hey, stupid head!" The purebred yipped at Sepsis.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
He groaned a little in response, pawing a little wet dirt off of his face that had gotten there when Henry had had to drag him in here. He was hungry… And unfortunately for Diamond being in the same room as Sepsis when he was hungry was an unfortunate choice.  As he fixed his eyes on her there was a certain something lacking in them. It wasn’t anger… No no… One did not express anger towards that which would be its next meal.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Of course, angry, bratty lil Diamond did not notice the way he stared at her with those starving eyes, only that he did not properly greet her. "You've got working legs! Use them! Daddy doesn't like a lazy face!"

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Of course, angry, bratty lil Diamond did not notice the way he stared at her with those starving eyes, only that he did not properly greet her. "You've got working legs! Use them! Daddy doesn't like a lazy face!"

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
It was lucky for her that the legs in question weren’t as operational as they normally were. Else wise those words may have indeed be her last. Sepsis lurched up and attempted to bite down into her, but his legs buckled under him.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Diamond only scrunched up her muzzle, not fearful. But when was she ever? She darted forward to nip at the closest part of him before bouncing back into place. "Dummy!" Her chocolate brown eyes narrowed.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Sepsis growled at her and attempted to bite down on her neck…. Fortunately for her, if he did get a grasp on her, her fur would be what saved her. Thick as it was it was hard to determine where it began and the fur ended. The fact that he was sort of hallucinating at the moment didn’t help matters either. Not that he really needed to with Diamond in order to think of her as food in this state.

If he caught her he’d shake her a bit and accidentally let go, flinging her across the den. If not, she’d find that his maw had gotten quite quite QUITE close to her neck indeed.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Diamond growled back, though hers was no where near as menacing and fatal-sounding. But a yelp of shock left her as he grabbed her by her fluffy neck fur and shook her about like a chew toy, and then sent her flying into the wall, hitting it with pained yip and falling to the ground with a groan. "Owiiieeeee......"

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
As Sepsis approached her he would find that there was flesh for him to consume already on the floor. He plunged towards it, devouring it rapidly. For now she had a moment of time to escape, but that would not last forever.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
But Diamond didn't like to run away, and while the wolf gulped down the meat, stood up and waited a second until she could see clearly. Once she could, she snapped. "You stupid head! That hurt!"

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
She had but a little bit longer… Sepsis’ hunger could only be quailed so quickly. After which he would be after her. He would be after the yapping idiot now, but he had flesh in paw right now.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Diamond growled, fox like ears flattening against his head. "Dummy, I'm talking to you! Answer me!" The fluffy lapdog demanded. When he only looked at her with hungry eyes, she huffed and walked away towards the hole, not really making a retreat but intending to tell on him.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
She barely made it out in time, as just as Sepsis finished his meal did he charge after her. He hit his head on the shed wall hard, and collapsed. He wasn’t unconscious, just in a little pain.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Diamond turned around as she heard the loud THUMP of Sepsis mashing into the shed wall. "Dummy dummy head!" The lapdog yapped. "Stupid! What are you trying to do?"

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
He snarled in an animalistic way, no words given to it.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Diamond scowled after he snarled. "Use your words, dummy!"

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Well… that clearly wasn’t going to happen for awhile.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Diamond, dummy to the last, marched forward a bit and snarled with him. "I can snarled too!" She squeaked. "So there!"

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
It took him about ten minutes to get his wits about him, at the end of which he went quiet, a little confused.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
"Hey! Dummy dumb! Done with your snarling now?" Diamond asked, with pouting.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Sepsis closed his eye shut, shaking his head a little. How long had it been? He padded back over to where he had been laying down before and did the same, staring at the wall.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Sense could've been screaming at Diamond and she still would've done what she had done, poking her head back in the shed. "Hey, answer me."

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
“Didn’t I just try and eat you?” Sepsis growled softly at her. Why the hell was she back here?

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
"I don't care." Diamond stated stupid and arrogantly. "You need to say sorry." She demanded.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
“I wasn’t talking to you.” Sepsis muttered. He would not apologize to the little mongrel that had caused her own life to be in danger. It was her fault for her own stupidity.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Diamond wriggled inside all the way. "I am gonna stay right here until you say sorry."

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
“I think I could think of a way to get you to leave.” He snarled. He’d rather not put in the effort, but it wasn’t like it was all that hard.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
"No you can't." Diamond said, thinking about her own secret weapon of her high pitched scream that some thought could break glass.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Sepsis stood up. “Ten seconds.” He wuffed simply.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
"One, two, three, four, five, six, seven....." She had to paused to remember what came after seven. "Nine, eight, ten!" She stayed firmly planted on the shed floor.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Moron. Sepsis attempted to leap on the yappy dog and pin her to the ground, pressing against her rib cage to make it hard, if not impossible, to breath.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Diamond yipped in surprise but did not let him know that his paw on her fragile rib cage was basically ensuring she would soon pass out, trying to make her gasps for breath discreet as possible.

Favorite weapons: the 'MERICA Sword, the Pole of Freedom, duel-wield Miniguns

Origin: Not much is known about the Ghost Wolf, so secret in fact that no one, NOT EVEN the Assassin brotherhood knows about his background let alone his real name. However, recent documents revealed that as a child, Ghost Wolf was a member of "the Collective;" a group of demonically possessed proxies lead by the evil spirit "Slenderman," serving as Slendermans personal Assassin. How he escaped Slenders mine control over him as a proxy is undiscovered. He joined the Assassin's and later the Marines under a vow, to save the world from Kim Jong Un and the Templars (side quest). Not only that, but also to find a "piece of Eden," a source of power that he believed would give him the power to seek revenge on Slenderman and the proxies for brainwashing him to kill all those innocent people. He soon got his wish when he soon found a temple deep under the city of Los Angeles in the form of two weapons, a sword and a pole. The pole, gave Ghost Wolf the power to spawn items such as other weapons, the sword, however, gave him ABSOLUTE power over almost any element imaginable. Giving Ghost more than enough to take down all his arch rivals with basically anything how he wants them to die. Giving his sword the name, "the 'MERICA sword" and attaching an Assassin/A'Merican flag onto his pole calling it "the Pole of Freedom," Ghost Wolf will Stop at nothing to get what he truly deserves, liberty, and vengeance.GHOST WOLF (MERICA) CHARACTER ANALYSIS by AssassinGhostWolf
