Alcatraz stared at Lady Athena, his thick fur bristled and his pale yellow eyes wide with shock, hardly believing what he was hearing. Stay... here? The Alpha Male would not be staying behind while his beloved mate and sons and closest friends raced off into harms way!

But before he could utter a word, she met his gaze, and immediately the words died. And he understood. They both couldn't go, one needed to keep the rest of the family safe. And he needed only an instant to see the cold fury and anguish that swirled within his Lady's silver eyes. And he realized that Athena was going. Which meant he was staying.

He bowed his head, wordless and submitting. It was their duty to part. They were Alphas first, and mates second.

She pushed into his fur, a brief heartbeat of togetherness as they gathered courage for the path ahead. She knew the pain and fear he felt at seeing her go, and she spoke softly the words he already knew, and then she left.




Needless to say, Traz was desperately relieved when they all returned home (even if injured T-T). I apologize for everyone who stayed behind securing the border with Traz, he was probably a real grump xD

It isn't easy being the Alpha pair :(

Happens after: DotW RP: The Kidnap (Blood Strings) IIIPart III

Aryn territory, early Spring.


As the reddish female launched herself forward in an attempt to avoid him, Jerikoh released a snarl of warning. Don't make this more difficult than it needs to be, Seven. Despite his internal plea, he knew better than to hope for an easy defeat. The she-wolf was a strong and proud member of Aryn--she would not let an enemy harm one of her own without putting up a fight.
 
So it was a fight she would get.
 
For a brief moment, he caught a glimpse of Heel approaching them. Relief washed over him, knowing that the two of them would have no trouble dealing with the fleet-footed she-wolf. But the Warlord soon turned his attention on Adrian, who was charging towards the scene. Jerikoh would have to take care of Arynian himself.
 
The Baron knew Seven was faster than him, and should he let her rocket past him, he would have no hope of catching her. He had to act quick


But before: The Posse - P1
 
Her heart was in her throat. Athena could not remember the last time she felt such utter terror for her family. Or such fury at a foe. Merrill had been taken. The hunting party viciously attacked. The three outsiders seeking asylum had turned out to be invaders with sinister purpose.
 
My fault.
 
It was as though poisonous fangs had clamped shut over the Lady’s heart. Her family had been attacked by wolves she welcomed into their home. She’d failed to see their true faces. She should have! To be so easily deceived seemed almost incomprehensible. Whoever they were, they were clever. The three strangers came into Aryn with such modest kindness that not a single Brother or Sister anticipated any treachery of this sort. It was an eerie crime. A gut-wrenching betrayal. Exactly the sort of wretches a Lady of Aryn should remain vigilant against!

Gah Tama you know I love this!! It tugs my heart EVERY TIME I LOOK //sobs Definitely one of my favourite pictures of these two! I love them SO much. ;-; I love that they love each other so much. I am SO glad they have each other, especially with everything that has happened and will happen. Athena would never have been complete without Traz. I've loved seeing him grow as a character, and seeing how he's made my characters grow, too! <33

I do know. <3 I am so happy you like it that much, Wyn, I am very proud of how it came out too!

Yeah their relationship is one of my favorites of all time ever. Ahh your words make me smile so much <3 It means the world that Alcatraz has made such an impact (considering Athena is one of my favorite characters in rp world, and fiction world in general, it's such an honor for me ;v;). Alcatraz would never have been complete without Athena either. He has grown into a character I could have never expected or imagined thanks to her. Their development together is the epitome of why I love this online role playing.

I feel like I say that stuff all the time, especially recently, but just know how true it is xD
