It was a long night for Nach, he slept for so long, and he felt so warm. He felt as if he was in a dream. Then he started to hear the chirping of some birds, and his eyes started to slowly open. Nach took a big yawn, and then looked down at the wolf next to him. Nach smiled a bit as he knew now that Jaci was safe, and it might have been the reason why he had slept so well. He looked outside at the forest. It was covered in a deep blanket of snow, but the sun was shimmering through the tree branches at that moment. The storm was over, and it was safe for Jaci to go home.

Nach knew however, that he was going to help her as well. He did not know if Jaci’s pack mates were looking for her, but he knew that they needed their only healer. Nach lowered his head next to Jaci’s, softly nuzzling her soft fur. “Jaci, hey, the storm’s over.” Nach said this is a soft tone, not wanting to scare her at all.

:iconipann:

The storm had stopped sometime in the night leaving the land blanketed in soft snow.  Jaci was deep in slumber despite her mind being so restless. Lyn was surely worried about her, maybe a few others as well. She would need to return to Chandor as soon as possible. Nack’s gentle nuzzle woke her, the blind Sister letting out a grumble of protest before her milky eyes flickered open. Her ear twitched at the sound of bird song. The storm was over and she could return home! Thank goodness.
Jaci was pretty sure she was never going to leave Chandor to go herb hunting without an escort again. Jaci yawned and lifted her head from her paws. The warmth from the sun overhead warmed her muzzle as she got up from her spot in the den. She slipped out of the entrance, stretching once she got out. ”Did you sleep okay?” she asked, hoping she didn’t snore or kick him in her sleep.

That would have been rather embarrassing after all. The she-wolf obviously was distracted. Her mind wasn’t in the present but instead thinking of Chandor. Her paws itched to go home. Waiting for the male Fellfang wolf to reply, she stood there staring blankly into the white woods.
”I must return home now. I appreciate all you have done for me Nach.” she wait with a flick of her tail.


----------------

:iconmatrixpotato:

Lyn awoke to a cool breeze on her face. She had fallen asleep facing the entrance to the den, waiting for Jaci to return. She had gone out herb hunting the evening before. She usually was not gone long, but a nasty storm brewed in from the north and Lyn was unable to go looking for her until it subsided. As her eyes adjusted to the world, she could see that the storm had lifted and the earth was now covered in a sheet of pure white snow, sparkling in the morning sun. Usually she would stop and enjoy the sight, smile at how beautiful it was. But today, she sprung to her feet- almost hitting her head on the ceiling of her and Rowan’s den -and quietly emerged, so as to not wake her sleeping mate. All she could think about was if Jaci was safe; she knew the sister was blind, but she knew Chandor like the back of her paw. Still, even if Jaci was not blind or had lived in the valley her whole life, Lyn would still worry.

Quickening her pace, Lyn dropped her head low and made her way to where Jaci had last been. Thanks to the fresh snow, the scent wasn’t as strong as she had hoped, but she was able to pick it up nonetheless. When she felt she had a good idea of the direction the pale sister had taken, Lyn took off at a canter, gliding over the earth on agile paws.

----------------

:iconbaseballfan2414:

Nach yawned as he stretched himself out. “I slept good, and I can tell that you slept good as well.” Nach then walked out of the den with Jaci, when she made the remark about heading home. “Jaci, let me help you with that. I’ll make sure you get to Chandor.” Nach stretched his back legs as he said this, knowing that it was going to be a long walk from where they were to Chandor. Nach knew the general area of Chandor, but had never been there himself.

“I wouldn’t be surprised if some of them were looking for you right now.” Nach said this, and chuckled a little bit. He knew that Chandor was about the same size in numbers as Fellfang, from information from his fellow packmates. Jaci, being their only healer, they probably need her more than ever. He stood by her side when he finished talking, with his fur touching hers, ready to escort her.

-------------------

:iconipann:

Slept good? That’s not exactly how that night went. Her dreams were filled with more disorienting and confusing thoughts and voices. They kept her tossing though very deep asleep.
At first Jaci was irritated that Nach wanted to escort her. She hated being treated like she couldn’t do anything. Her blindness didn’t mean she couldn’t find her way home. Chandor was in her heart, she would always find them. After a few seconds Jaci felt shame. She shouldn’t get mad at the Fellfang male for offering his help. He only wants to make sure she gets home alright, and she should appreciate his kind gesture.

”Really? Th-thank you.” she nodded, mind still focused on the forest before her. She wanted to be in her territory again, the land she was familiar with, the earth, the scents, the trees, she wanted to be near Lyn and the pups, the herbs. She just had to remember that she would be home soon. The thought that someone maybe looking for her only filled her with more anxiety. Jaci wanted to be home so badly.

When the wolf beside her brushed pelts she took the signal that he was ready to leave and she put her nose to the air. The scents had returned to the land making it easier to remember what direction she had come from the night before. Before long she was already walking towards Chandor territory, her nose constantly looking for signs that they were getting closer.

”I really appreciate everything you’ve done for me Nach.” She started, eyes half lidded.
”You are a good person for putting others before yourself.” she noted out loud.


----------------

:iconmatrixpotato:

As Lyn trekked through the snow on her quest to find her friend, another scent wafted her way. It was a stranger, someone not from Chandor. Anxiety rose in Lyn’s gut; she hoped this stranger was friendly and had not taken advantage of her friend.

It wasn’t long until Jaci’s scent was strong again; she ended up being quite close to the border of Chandor. Lyn slowed her pace, wary of the other strong scent tagging along with Jaci’s. They could both undoubtedly smell her by now, but instead of calling out as she normally would have Lyn chose to remain silent, ears alert and listening for any signs of ill treatment from the stranger.

However, as she listened, she heard nothing but pleasantries being spoken between them. The anxiety in her heart deflated and she let out a silent breath of relief. Finally, Lyn rounded the corner of a bush and let her eyes fall upon the blind shewolf and her russet companion. A glad smile traced her lips seeing the sister unharmed and safe.

”There you are!” She chimed, closing the gap between them to boop her head affectionately against Jaci’s in greeting.

----------------

:iconbaseballfan2414:

Nach smiled as Jaci thanked him for helping her. “Jaci, I would do anything for a friend.” Nach then heard the rustle of feet, and Nach began to worry for a moment. He then recognized the wolf that was coming towards them, as one of the wolves that was with Jaci when Nach first met her. Nach watched as the wolf came towards the two of them, and booped heads with Jaci. It was obviously a friend of Jaci, and Nach chuckled at the scene of their reunion. “Nice to know you had a friend looking for you Jaci.” Nach then came up to the two of them, and dipped his head in respect to the new wolf. “How are you mam? Are you doing alright?” Nach made sure that she was alright as well. For all he knew, she could’ve been searching all day for Jaci.

-------------------

:iconipann:

Lyn?
Oh Spirits, oh Gods, oh anyone and everyone!

Jaci’s nose was still pretty clogged up from the cold so she hadn’t scented her Alpha until she spoke and seemed to appear out of no where.
”Aethelynda!” Jaci whimpered and affectionately bumped heads with the brown she-wolf. Oh she was so happy to be with her again. Lyn was the only wolf Jaci felt completely loyal to without any hesitation. The wolf had saved her over and over and Jaci could not help but feel to be in her and Chandor’s debt.
”I’m so sorry- I was so foolish to have went out on my own like that…” Jaci had gone out on her own for herb searching for years, but never had she gotten lost like that. It was terrifying to be completely honest. Though it was thanks to Nach for helping her get to a safe place and get warmed up. Without his help she may have been lost to the cold storm forever.

”Nach, this is my Alpha, Aethelynda. Leader of Chandor.” Jaci’s ear twitched and a smile stretched along her maw. She was just so happy to be home again. The night was horrible knowing Lyn and her pack would be worried about her wellbeing. ”This is Nach, a wolf of Fellfang. He found me in the storm last night and helped me.” she sat down next to her Alpha, embracing their reunion.


----------------

:iconmatrixpotato:

With a grin that screamed relief, Lyn nodded to Jaci’s companion, who she introduced as Nach. She’d heard little of Fellfang, but from what she knew it was lead by Fable, a former member of Chandor. It pleased Lyn to see a member of Fellfang so friendly and willing to help others. It made her happy for Fable.

”Hello there. Thank you so much for helping Jaci, Nach. I don’t know what Chandor would do without her!” Lyn said, giving a warm smile to the both of them. She was so happy, she couldn’t even feel the bitter cold of winter.

”If you’d like, you’re welcome to stay in Chandor for the night before you head back. We can offer you food and we have plenty of space for you.” Lyn offered the tawny wolf. It was the least she could do for his kindness toward Jaci.

----------------

:iconbaseballfan2414:

Nach stood there as he listened to the Alpha of Chandor. She made an offer to him, and Nach smiled at the thought of it. Jaci had visited Fellfang, and she had experienced what Nach’s life was like. This was a chance for Nach to see her pack, and how she lived her daily life as well.
He looked over to Jaci, and then to Lyn. ”Ma’m, it would be an honor to visit Jaci’s home. I’ve always wanted to see Chandor, and to see Jaci’s amazing task.” Nach then thought about what he just said, he did want to see how amazing she was.

“With your permission Lyn, I wish to stay by Jaci’s side. She is an amazing healer, and I would love to see what she does, and maybe help her out as well for the day.” Nach said this, while smiling. Jaci was the only wolf he knew there, so it wouldn’t be a bad idea to stay by her side.

-------------

:iconipann:

The blind Sister clung to the brown she-wolf she called her alpha, and honestly best friend. Without her, she wasn’t sure she would be here, and she owed a similar gratitude towards Nach for doing the same. When Lyn offered Nach a place to stay for the day as a small thanks for returning the Sister home safely, Jaci could feel her tail wagging excitedly. Of course she was happy to show Nach why she loved Chandor so much and after all, she needed more time to tell him how thankful she was for him helping her in the storm and getting back home. Finally being back in Chandor was the only serenity she had felt in the last 24 hours she had been away and lost. Nach seemed to agree, and luckily, Jaci didn’t really have to say anything for either of the wolves to seem to understand. She smiled, though her eyes stared aimlessly, she was obviously trying to smile at Nach. ”I can’t wait to show you what Chandor is like Nach!” she seemed to glow with pride. Chandor. Her home. Her pack. She was glad she had found purpose there. The healer pressed her nose to Lyn’s shoulder again, breathing in her familiar scent. She felt her mind at ease finally. She was so glad to be home again. So glad to be with Lyn and her family once more.
“Thank you again Nach. I wish I could repay you somehow but I hope you spending the day with us and a safe journey home tomorrow will be enough.” Jaci spoke a tad more calmly now. The once anxious and obviously suffering she-wolf was at peace by her leader’s side.

-------------

:iconmatrixpotato:

Lyn smiled at the two of them and felt comforted by Jaci’s presence beside her. ”Well then, welcome to Chandor, Nach!” She said joyfully. ”I think that would be a wonderful idea.” She said in response to Nach’s request. It filled her with happiness to see Jaci, whom she considered to be her closest friend, so proud to show off their home. How could she say no to that? ”No time to waste then!” Lyn said with a chuckle.
:icondomain-of-the-wolf:

Shortly before Lyn's death, Nach escorts Jaci back to Chandor safely.
