Roleplay with Wildfire-Tama with Alcatraz & SeleneTheWerewolf with Bloom
______________________________

Wildfire-Tama said the following:

Alcatraz stalked into the main den site. It was sunhigh, and that meant it was his turn to guard Bloom, the Blutwald prisoner, and prevent her from escape. The dark Arynian made his way to the little red she-wolf and sat down beside her, his yellow eyes stony. He always had a stony face when he was with her. He refrained from speaking unless he had to, and he interacted as little as possible. He did not want to be hostile to her, and give Blutwald a reason to endanger his pack when Bloom should return, but he certainly had no interest in being friendly with the thief who had threatened the well being of Aryn.

It was spring, and rather hot already for the southern pack of Aryn. Alcatraz had been sure to eat and drink before he came, so he had no distractions to his task. But he supposed Bloom might be thirsty as well, with the sun filtering warmly through the trees upon their pelts. He glanced at her. ”Are you thirsty?” He asked. He didn’t know Bloom well, and he didn’t want to risk her getting sick or delirious because she was not properly watered.

----------
SeleneTheWerewolf said the following:

Bloom was curled up under a tree, trying her best to stay shaded. It was hot as the end of Spring was beginning to turn into Summer. She had been away from her pack for almost 3 months. There was still as of yet no sign of her pack. The only one who she had glimpsed was Crash. But, the female never approached her. Was she a spy, or had she really turned on her mother? If she was a spy; of course she couldn't be seen near her.. Maybe she'll get to see and talk to her soon..

The changing of her guard only roused her for a moment so she could see who graced her presence now. Cracking open a forest green eye, she peered up at the dark wolf, Alcatraz. Ugh, the one wolf besides Charaka she didn't really get along with. Though he never two words to her, he never really made this easy on her. They would sit in silence until the sun was high in the sky. At least of the wolves would entertain her with talk.

So, when he spoke to her, she tilted her head up at him. Never even raised her head, just tilted her head to the side. She licked her teeth, they felt dry and her throat felt parched. "Yes,...I am a bit parched.." she rasped. She was always thirsty the first shift of the day. It was very rare she was taken down to the river in the middle of the night..

----------
Wildfire-Tama said the following:

Alcatraz got to his paws. ”Alright. Come.” he said. He took a few steps toward the river farthest from Blutwald territory and then stopped and waited for her. He would lead in case she did not know the way, but he did not want her to leave his sight. He knew that he could easily outrun the younger female, but he would prefer that neither of them waste their energy on such a warm day ”Stay at my side,” he rumbled.

They began their way through the territory. The silence that stretched between them was as formal as ever. It was clear that Alcatraz had no intention of befriending Bloom. Truthfully, he saw this situation irritating. Of course he agreed that having leverage on Blutwald through a hostage was a good strategic move, but he often wished that it had been he who had found her hunting on Aryn lands first. He did not know how exactly the first encounter with Bloom had lead to her capture, but he would have done the simple solution. Drive her out and be done with it. None of this guarding, none of the politics, no major threat from a neighboring pack who was most likely bigger than they. But he would never voice his opinions. He was a member of Athena’s pack, and he would side with and defend her methods regardless of what his personal opinion was. Aryn needed to be united, and they needed to appear as one. And so he held his tongue and did as he was told; no more, no less.

----------
SeleneTheWerewolf said the following:

Bloom sighed and climbed to her paws. Her body wobbled a bit unsteadily. She had very little energy, they gave her mere scraps a bones to keep her alive. It was enough to give sated, but enough to return her strength so she could make a run for it. Like she would, she had no idea where she was, she had lost track of how far they could be from the border.

Obediently, she followed beside Alcatraz. Only once or twice did she glance up at his face. His jaw was set, his eyes blank and emotionless. He didn't like her here, that much was obvious. Under normal circumstances she wouldn't have engaged him. But, she wanted to know him more. If she was to be stuck here, why not try and play nice?

"You don't like me very much, do you?" she asked him, not meeting his face. She only kept walking side by side with him.

----------
Wildfire-Tama said the following:

Alcatraz maintained his stoney expression as they walked. He could see her glance at him curiously occasionally, but he was happy that she held her tongue. They would be at the river soon. But soon she broke the silence. Alcatraz’s dark ear twitched as she spoke. He glanced at her sideways for a moment. She was not looking at him, just walking calmly at his side. He looked back forward. ”Should I? You were found stealing from my family.” He rumbled, but his voice mild. He honestly had little opinion of the female. He didn’t know her personally at all, and his only experience was accusations of her crimes. But the accusations surely did not leave Bloom in a good light.

----------
SeleneTheWerewolf said the following:

Her jaw clenched, but she released her held breath. "Technically, I never got to steal it.." she said with a small huff. She suddenly stopped and glared at Alcatraz, the need to defend herself pumped quickly through her veins. Then, just as suddenly as the anger came, she dropped her head and curled her tail. There was no point in angering this wolf.. The deed was done..

"I was just...trying to feed my family.. I didn't want my mom to lose another pup to death..." she whispered, and went back to following Alcatraz.

----------
Wildfire-Tama said the following:

Alcatraz flicked a dark ear, “You intended to, which is just as wrong in my eyes.” He grumbled. Suddenly the young she-wolf stopped. Alcatraz stopped a pace ahead of her, turning around with his cold yellow eyes upon her. She stared up at him with a fire in her pale green eyes and he stood stonily before her, waiting for her to speak. The confrontation alone seemed to have exhausted the defeated she-wolf and her anger faded with her posture.

Alcatraz listened to her words expressionlessly. Bloom continued to walk and Alcatraz continued on beside her, silent for a moment. To hear that Blutwald was falling upon difficult times reassured Alcatraz, but losing children, of course, was never something to wish upon another. “We all have our own struggles, and we all must overcome them without resorting to underhanded means.” He answered firmly but not unkindly. That being said, he could only imagine the pain the Blutwald Alpha was going through having lost a child. While it was necessary, in Alcatraz’s eyes, for a pack’s survival to focus on themselves and themselves alone, the world was often unfair… and often the wolves who suffer most are not the ones who most deserved it. ”I’m sorry for your loss,” he said finally.

----------
SeleneTheWerewolf said the following:

Bloom heaved another sigh. No wolf was on her side. In their eyes, she stole from them, even though she was trying to save her family. Nobody cared. Now, she was isolated. No friends. No family. With a snarl, she summoned up any energy she had left and shoved at Alcatraz and made a break for it.

Deep in her mind, she knew she couldn't out run Alcatraz. It didn't matter though. Maybe if she was fleeing..maybe they'd let her go.. It was a fruitless endeavor. Already her energy was waning and her legs felt sluggish. She didn't care though. She'd give Alcatraz a run..

----------
Wildfire-Tama said the following:

Alcatraz was quite a large wolf, and Bloom was small as well as weak and tired, and so her shove did little to him. She did, however, have the element of surprise, and the dark wolf stared in shock for a moment as she scampered away. Did she really…? Does she really think…? Alcatraz rolled his eyes, letting out an exasperating moan as he took off after her.

Alcatraz’s powerful muscles rippled under his long pelt as he pounded through the bushes. It did not take too long for him to catch up to her, for she was already running out of energy, and her movements were stumbling and slow. The dark wolf was about to spring upon her, knock her down, and pin her to the ground with a snarling rebuke, but something stopped him. She didn’t know where she was going, but she was deep in Aryn territory, no where near any border. She would not escape, and at any moment he could stop her if he needed to. Why doesn’t he just… let her run a little. Maybe get rid of some of her pent up energy. He doubted she was ever able to run, even if she did not exactly seem to be enjoying herself.

Alcatraz fell into stride beside her, slowing down significantly as he kept her exhausted pace. He made no move to stop her, but followed alongside her, keeping one eye on her and the other on the path ahead so nothing would get in their way. “I know that you are afraid, and you fear for your family,” he said to her as they ran, “but we will not harm you. You will see them again, one way or another. And you will learn from this experience.”

SeleneTheWerewolf said the following:

Bloom could hear Alcatraz chase after her. Any moment she braced herself for the inevitable leap of Alcatraz jumping down on her, pinning her and showing his teeth. It never came. Though she heard him get closer. And when she turned, he was right beside her. He was letting her run. Well, she was struggling to even hold the jog now. And sooner now, she was walking, her sides heaving heavily.

It dawned her. There was no use of him bringing her now. She was in unknown territory. For all she knew she was heading in the opposite direction of home. When he finally spoke, she looked at him. Really looked at him. "You will see the again, one way or another." Finally standing in a small creek bed she stumbled upon, she continued to stare at him, her eyes stinging.

She quickly looked away, to avoid Alcatraz seeing any tears forming in her eyes. "....Thanks," she whispered, but didn't look back at him until she was sure there weren't any tears in her eyes, but her cheeks were a bit wet.

----------
Wildfire-Tama said the following:

Alcatraz noticed how quickly Bloom ran out of steam as they ran. The young she-wolf was exhausted, and certainly lacking strength. Alcatraz had a feeling she would always be weary of borders after this experience.

Finally Bloom stopped in a creek bed. She stared up at him and he met her gaze with calm yellow eyes. Not coldly, as he usually did, but just calm, and even a bit tired. For him to say that the experience was not exhausting for him as well would be a lie. He often would lie awake worried that Blutwald would invade to save their Alpha’s daughter, hurting his family or worse… while Bloom was certainly worse off than he was, at least she was safe. No one would harm her. But Alcatraz could not say the same for Athena. Or Charaka. Or Gabitrix. Or Raghaalr. Or anyone in Aryn. His family was in danger, and while he was great at hiding his emotions behind a stoic, grumpy face, it did not diminish the apprehension he felt beneath his thick dark coat.

Bloom looked away suddenly, and although the dark wolf saw no tears he could feel the sadness and coming off the overwhelmed she-wolf in waves. Alcatraz let out a small sigh. ”Lady Athena is noble and good. You and your family have nothing to fear, so long as they work with us to find a reasonable solution.”

Alcatraz paused a moment, looking into the forest depths as he allowed Bloom some more private time to compose herself. She was not running anywhere, and even if she tried again, Alcatraz did not fear losing her in her exhausted state. His amber eyes were sharp again as they flicked back to the young red female, ”I hope you’ve saved some energy, for you’ve managed to make the walk to the river even longer,” he said in a voice that was dry but not unkind.

----------
SeleneTheWerewolf said the following:

"It is not my pack I am worried about." She told him, still looking at him in silence. It was true, she wasn't worried Aryn being any threat for Blutwald. She was fearful of Aryn being wiped out for this tiny situation.. Ever since her mother lost Stallion, she'd been unstable. As the time went on she had watched her mother deteriorate. Often snap at wolves who might messed up something trivial. Yes, she was worried about Aryn more than Blutwald.

"Yeah, I'm ready to get a drink now.." she whispered, looking down at her paws in silence.

----------
Wildfire-Tama said the following:

Alcatraz gave her a long look through his cold yellow eyes. He understood her words, and what was implied. And Alcatraz shared the same fears, but he did not let them manifest. He was not afraid for his safety, but that they would be overwhelmed by the shear numbers of the older pack. He expected, should the pack be large and full of wolves like Ivan, that he would die in any conflict that would arise. His only fear was that he would not have the strength to hold off the enemies and keep his family safe before he died. The very thought was terrifying and made him feel helpless. When he was young, he would never have had such fears. Bring them all on, he would have said, I’ll kill each one with a paw behind my back! But his encounter with strength such as that possessed by Ivan had given him a rude awakening that had almost cost him his life. He would never be so careless again, nor would he overestimate his abilities.

Either way, he would fight to his very last breath, but that was all he could do. Was that enough? Only time would tell. ”Come.” he rumbled, turning and heading toward the stream. He paused briefly to allow Bloom to catch up to him, and then he silently lead the way through the peaceful Arynian forest.

I love the character depth in this. Its so awesome that the character involved in this cold war aren't always backing their alpha's, and are actually seeing things in gray scale, not just black and white.
