(15:51:33) Zodiak slowly wandered away from the den, still carrying favored tail as he'd not come across drak yet to present as token. Sigh... the events of the previous night still rushed through him, he was still mulling over all these new feelings and experiences. His once former foe now had a strange place with him. It wasn't like the love he felt for nida but more of a dark romance filled with lust. Head would shake the thoughts from him. Right now he was in search of miss nida, he felt her dissapearence meant bad news for him. Had his actions struck a bad note with her? He hoped not... he didn't expect things to go as they had when that strange demon took hold of him. Lips would curl in a snarl, teeth gnashing against the tail before he'd stop near a tree and toss it to the ground with a snort. mangled ear twisted back and head hung low as nose searched for her scent. He needed to make things right with her, hopefully she would accept, and hopefully his demon would stay under control...
(15:58:43) Nida didn't find Drakov nor Vadimir at the den, and surmised they were busy with the pack or .. off, distracted with other worldly things. She takes for the river's shoulder where she stops at the bank to lap at the water. Though soon as the familiar scent registered in her mind and calling to mind the series of events from the other night .. her tail tucked, as does her ears. It was the bitter feeling screaming from her body language, postured with on-edge calm. Nida turns to him. " Hello, Zod," she'd greet him. Beneath the collected cadence was a layer of mistrust and jealousy lying in wait for him and his ' demon'. Huff.
(16:05:53) Zodiak. a moment's intake of surrounding scents would have the familiar mix that defined his dearest passing through nostrils. This along with the deadly purfume that she carried. He was drawn to her and the scent, lingering slowly towards her and pausing at her greeting. Tail lowered and head decreased its elevation with a slight tilting to the side. Her mood was easily deciphered and he'd slowly edge toward her with a submission he'd never really given the girl but felt it necessary as he'd plainly fucked up the previous night. Muzzle would gently slip beneath her own to press against chin, a whine that could only beg forgiveness seeped from lips as tail warrily swayed against his thighs. He was fighting a battle right now, his journy to maturity knowing how to balance his relationship with the girl along with the desire he held for her that went far beyond meer company.
(16:14:21) Nida's eyes narrowed harshly upon the swarthy creature giving his approach. She did not take nor give ground, only watch from where she stood. Her terse features did soften at the discerning of his body and tail position, her own remaining neutral and unflapped. A low rumble interspersed of a growl and whine rippled from her throat like a wavelet, and only ended when his muzzle slipped beneath her chin to whine and beseech a less .. coarse reprimand. The compact and short woman snapped, her teeth attempting for his muzzle to gingerly wrap her teeth around and supply him a few nicks to the bridge of it. That way any would know she was his, and he hers- a public claim, apparently. She'd step back if nothing had went wayward and the process went without a hitch, ears still back. Just jealous, no biggie.
(16:28:25) Zodiak's whines ceased as muzzle was grabbed. He'd squirm only slightly within her grasp, tail swaying steadily. Her release was followed with a sneeze toward the dirt, whole body shaking with releif as he took her reprimand for forgiveness and warning. A warning which he would do his best to heed, just hopefully cort wouldn't push him like he had before. --sigh-- As she moved back, he moved forward with more confidence than before. He'd shift forward until chest was pressed against hers, head craning round to rest upon shoulders. The action, combine with her scent had thoughts rushing his mind again and slight pressure was applied with his chin as if trying to lift himself before he slowly pulled away to plan several licks against her muzzle. He'd give her the respect--or at least try to, as much as he wanted to do otherwise.
(16:36:49) Nida licked her muzzle with a languid twist of her tongue, tasting his blood against her palette. It tasted .. exquisite .. With a step forward on Zod's part, Nida mildly bristled, unsure what course of action she should take thereafter. Chest to chest, and feeling weight across her shoulders, she'd fallen into a psuedo calm for the moment. Her tail slovenly wags. Those ears erected themselves to the still air as she side-stepped cautiously, leering at the other, as she nipped and left an impression upon him with a casual brush of body. And oooh, them muzzle licks -- those were her favorite. " How's your side ...?" Nida hadn't forgotten. Is hydro-therapy in order ..?
(16:53:27) Zodiak recoiled slightly at given nip. It was something that strangely drew him more to her. He liked that she wasn't afraid to snap at him for stepping out of line. Yess maam. Head would perk at her question, tail swaing proudly as he'd persued with the water treatment and healed wonderfully. "It's great" he stated excitedly, lowering front end into a long stretch to show the action delt him no pain anymore. He stood and gaze twisted downward, searching left and right as he slowly spun in place before lunging at the dirt to retreive the dropped tail. Holding it high, he'd prace to her and lift muzzle so coffee-cream tail could be observed. A playful gruff rumbled between his teeth as he tried to show how great a thing this was that he had before dropping it at his feet. His first tail; prized gem that was sure to impress the tsars. Mischevious gaze crossed him as he turned attention back to her "so, how was your spar with smug?" he'd grin "Learn anything new?"
(17:02:27) Nida tilts her head side wise when he moved from her nip. She did not understand what he expected it to be, but nonetheless accepted what transpired. Her brows pluck up to her forehead at his reply, though. " You .. aren't afraid of the water any more ..?" She nosed her way into his neck fur to inhale his scent, mingling with hers and a few others. The scents in which she'd failed to recognize were stored away in her memory. Good to see he was improving in terms of health -- no need to be a codding mama bear! Eyes narrow onto the tail she recalled he snagged from Monro and observed him flaunt it around, proud and tall. Her tail wags feebly, " it was okay. I shouldn't rear knowing my opinion is taller than myself." Or stay in the air for so long! Her foot awkwardly abrade the ground with thoughtful pawing, " ahm .. will you be my mentor ..?"
(17:17:21) Zodiak's ears, or at least the tufts of them, flicked at her initial question, "well, i wouldn't go as far to say that..." he'd give a wolfy smile to her, freezing as her figure pressed into his. Ohhboy. Body almost trembled as he fought to ignore her scent, wanting no more than to grab ahold of her and have at it. He'd hold his breath some, painfully returning nuzzles before shifting away. It wasn't that he was avoiding her, but fear of what he might do pushed him back. If he made the mistake he made with cort she may just avoid him forever. Poor confused pup. Head tilted at her comment and uncertanty flickered over him at her quesiton. She wanted him to mentor her? Of course he would try but he felt unworthy of the task. Tail would sway and he'd dare shift to her, nuzzling against her cheek, "Of course" he'd murr, tail swaying.
(17:23:39) Nida gave a whimsical snort at his response, " at least you are better." That's what matters most, innit? She reclined to a sit and squared her shoulders to protrude her chest out, adopt an elegant posture whilst keeping close to her companion. His tensing has the corners of blunt muzzle favoring a frown- it'd made her feel as though her seduction wasn't enough! Didn't help he was a little hesitant with the proposal! Though his words and gesture assured her it was all in her head, and with her insecurity, fed with dubious thoughts and feels. Nida nips him again, and licks his fur, preening.
(17:32:32) Zodiak smiled some "yea much better than before" more nuzzles and licks would be given. It was all thanks to her that he was better than before, one of the reasons the boy was crazy about her. She'd changed him and been his light in the darkest places. Nips and grooming from her would send chills down furry spine as the boy fluffed out some. Why was this so hard? Why did she have to smell so good and in the moment being so nice to him. UGH he couldn't help himself. Boy would press into her, licks being given to her cheek and ears before chin motioned to her shoulder again to apply pressure. Two wolves duked it out in his mind, biting and clawing as one--his darker side demanded force--while the other demanded courtesy. Would it seriously be like this every time?!! Body would vibrate as he gingerly grabbed at her scruff, any objection would send him a distance from her. Couldn't blame the boy for trying.
(17:40:03) Nida nipped and licked and nosed into him. " So, glad you're better." Too pleased, in fact. Too bad she didn't know about his internal conflict going on, otherwise she would have probably ran for the hills, screaming. Because humping is a no-no .. especially when children come of it. Then she felt him press into her and she'd tense, fur growing in its powder-puff fashion, plush as a grizzly bear, and giving an austere look. One side wanted to hump his face and the other .. well, didn't want to suffer the repurcussions of letting raging hormones get the better of her. Her ear coated in slob flicked, standing to fours naturally, and felt a pinch sensation to her scruff. Her tail stayed curled between her thighs.
(17:51:32) Zodiak felt the tension she carried, causing his own fur to stand on end as chin pressed more heavily onto her shoulder. Instincts were begining to take hold as the boy took in a deep breath, allowing her perfume to lather his nostrils. Sorry nida... Her rise to all fours urged him to pursue events farther as chin was lifted with her. Frame was half lifted to drape over her like a horse saddle, head turning to gently grab her scruff as he growled lowly. The growl wasn't aggressive, more something to try and ease both his and her tension as boy scooted for more optimal posture. Abscent any objection he'd follow through with the deed and probably add himself to drak's little black book where his ass was sure to be bloodied.
(17:58:48) Nida half whined and snarled, dithering with how to approach ... well everything. She was raging with hormones and thinking of myriad of things, specifically how to handle the idea of coming forward to the alphas. With the nape of her neck grabbed and held in his mouth she snarled, incited by the feel and putting her further on edge. Her hindlegs were half-bent, tail tucked between legs still, but that alone did not deter him. Deed done, and separating from a dog tie, crying and whimpering like a dolt from the unfelt before pain, Nida would scramble for a sharp turn to snap at him. They were so screwed!!!
(18:06:28) Zodiak kept it together enough to not harm her while deed progressed and even through delay of tie-up he'd reach around to offer licks to her if within reach. Things were different with her than with cort. There was a bond present with her, something that kindled the flame inside. Detached from her, he'd pant heavily and shy from her snapping, too tired to really avoid anything. Gaze would turn back to her and he'd move to lick at her muzzle, tongue sliding from nose to forhead repeatedly as tail swayed with joy. He'd give her a gentle nudge "It'll be ok" he reassured the girl, a sinking feeling following his words.
(18:15:14) Nida was delirious with fear slicked with frustration, that her snaps kept coming as he side-stepped from her snarling and short-lived anger. When she'd finished with the fussing and whining and bitching, she quieted, but she stood there with a stiff posture, tail crooked yet elevated, as she stood angled shoulder to shoulder with the swarthy male. Her chest rise then fell rapidly as she respired through her nose, straining for neighboring smells and anything that stood out to her. More whines expel when he'd licked her face; hard to pick a fight with a cutie, harder when giving affection. Her head slipped beneath his chin and nestled into his throat, struggling. " They'll kill them .." Had he not seen what Vad and Drak were capable with their own children ..?
(18:21:32) Zodiak expected her aggression when dealt, accepting it. He'd also expected a heavy beating from drak, somthing his mind was working to resolve so he'd at least get out alive. What he hadn't thought of... was the after result of this indulgence. Realizing now the shock that drak and vad also held when realization struck. Nida's words stabbed into him and he stiffened with her beneath his chin. Gaze zoned off across the scenery, not looking at anything in particular. How would he keep the tsar from not only destroying youngin's but breaking a mother's heart. Broken whine escaped him as he nuzzled chin down into her "Ill figure something out..." he answered quietly, his voice dull and unsure as thoughts danced over all that was to come.
(18:31:10) Nida stared blankly at the ground underfoot. She was absolutely terrified. What they had done was a mistake. Granted, a wonderful one with the bait of temptation? But afterwards, knowing they might get a mouthful - and not just words- from the alphas, but possibly in front of all to witness ..? Not fun in the slight. Her haunches fold to a sit as she debated further. Pulling from beneath and eyeing the river, she noses to beckon his attention then motion to the body of water. " We should wash our scent .. and find a way to tell them .." If she was expecting, that is.
(18:39:36) Zodiak remained stationed as she sat and pulled from him. a light sigh escaped him. He knew regardless he'd have to step up to drak and take the weight of punishment. Like hell he'd let nida suffer for his doing. Maybe that was a way to ease her pain... he'd make it seem like it was all him... an act of force. If that was to work.. nida would have to play her part and be the battered girlfriend. The flaw in this plan would be drak would see no reason to keep the kids.. if any... head would shake. He was lost for ideas. Nida's statement had him snapping back to reality. Do what now??? Oy. A groan escaped him as he stepped forward, leaning into her with a soft whine. Do I have tooooo? before he nudged her and slowly moved to the water. He'd enter slowly as far as he'd been able to go, up to his elbows leaving top half exposed. Head would turn back to see if she was following.
(18:49:28) Nida peered up to him as he took a long ass time to agree. She was not going to take no for an answer. They done the deed, and the evidence was in need of being washed away. Her eyes closed at his sigh, then, a few minutes later, a groan and implicit reluctance. She knew that look all too well. Thankfully no coercing would be had to persuade him to the slow-motion river. Nida's legs kicked into gear once Zod tread up to his elbows and flung herself straight into the semi- deep waters. Her head poked from underneath with a theatrical gasp, head shaking as she paddled to where her knight in shining armor was at. " C'mon, it'll be fun. Trust me." She grips the side of his neck to tug.
(19:00:59) Zodiak was halfway into the water, feeling quite unsure of himself. Strangely, the other flow of events that usually took place were gone; the things that filled him with fear. Now it seemed more of a dislike toward the water. Gaze followed nida as she dove right in, nose wrinkling as she shook and water nearly misted his face. ugh. Her approach was reciprocated with a groan as she urged him forward, only moving from his firmly planted spot when she grabbed ahold of him and tugged. He ressited up until the point where his feet no longer had ground. A slight flick of panic crossed his face as head submerged beneath the surface. Legs flailed and pulled muzzle and eyes above water level, jaw parted and gasping for breath as he splashed about. He felt like if he didn't thrash like an idiot, he'd sink to the bottom. Little did he know, relaxing promotes boyancy.
(19:10:47) Nida willed him along into the deeper water. He wasn't panicking like before, where he would whine and meet her with feet rooted into the ground beneath him. Though as he began to flail and clamber arduously in the water to keep afloat, her vice hold to him was relinquished so that she can play hero. Hurdurr. Nida's head submerged, only coming up directly beneath his chin. " Calm down, Zod.. I'm here for you." Pffft .. like she would allow him to drown and let her handle all the grunt work that comes with single parenthood, oh no. " Don't you trust me?"
(19:15:24) Zodiak. Bad memories were flooding him, memories he didn't even know existed as he flailed beneath the waters surface. He couldn't grip this shit it was untouchable. Grrr stupid water. Nida's form was felt beneath his chin and her words relaxed him. Thrashing ceased although limbs kept paddling at a slower pace. Nose took in deep, venting breaths as he tried to relax. Her question filling him with warmth. "Of--course---I---do---fff" he struggled through breaths and attempts at keeping afloat.
(19:38:17) Nida phews when he stopped his flailing and thrashing and basically full on derping! Her eyes narrow onto him, at a harsh angle, as she took a firm hold of him and drug him back to shore. A solid minute of soaking ought to do the trick ..! A good shake was made at the bank and silt, fat and rolls flapping at othe parts of he body, until the motion ceases. A lick of damp muzzle, and turning, she faces Zod wherever he may be and smother him with licks and slobber galore! " See, it wasn't that bad, was it ..?" With a couple steps toward the greenery, she'd ease onto her shoulder then flop fully onto her side without ceremony. She'd grind and roll naturally in mother nature.
(19:49:47) Zodiak couldn't help but stiffen again as she grabbed ahold of him for the second time. ohnoohno was all that crossed his thoughts, thinking he would have to go deeper or back under. Instead paws felt the grace of the river's basin and he gripped, pulling from her and darting out of the water with several hearty shakes. He'd turn to search for nida only to be greeted with affections. He'd growl and usher forth a loving nom to her neck fluff, tail swaying before he too dropped beside her to roll amongst the grass. It wouldn't get him dry, but at least he wouldn't be sopping wet. After a moment he'd flip back upright with a huff, thinking on all that was soon to come. First and foremost, if drak questioned his watered state. Oyyy
(19:54:43) Nida rolled and thrashed .. and then some, for good measure. She fetched the ground on her stomach with an effortless roll on her behalf, to look at Zod, growling and loving the limelight of tender, love and care. Her tail thumps. She sucks up the nomming to her neck, she thoroughly enjoyed every bit of it. Welp .. at least they don't smell like the aftermath of regret and sweat and .. well, yeah. That. Head wedges itself over to nip at his toes and pastern if able and he hadn't moved away from the burly she-wolf. Come play with me, Zoood. Worry about a painful beating laterrr~
(20:01:25) Zodiak had himself all worried about what was to come, that is until nida sucessfully distracted him. Tail thumped against the ground and front paws pulled him forward like a comando. Neck would stretch with a growl as he nipped back at her, diving for her own tender toesies before rolling over under her chin to bat paws in her face. Definately a great way to get all that off his mind. Tongue would lick at her chin before jaws parted to nom at her throat--gently of course-- as growls muffled into her fur. arrararar
(20:07:36) Nida made the ' arrrra' sound as he played along with her, heart racing, eyes dilating, and getting caught up in the moment. Tail thumps when he fought back with zealous, pinching face, toes, and -gasp- her neck! She used her back legs to push into his stomach or back depending which way he flopped and work distance between them so Nida has enough grace period to find her footing and plan her next attack! Err .. playfully, of course. She'd pressed the side of her shoulder into him before dropping the rest of herself onto the ground and grime, continuing the nips and loving.
(21:51:12) Zodiak continued to talk and growl as he nommed on his nidakins. Paws were felt pushing into him so he rolled onto his side and pushed back at her with his own feet, forcing a greater than expected distance between them. As she rose, he remained on the ground rolling in the grass lazily with jaws open to make funny airy sounds as he writhed about. When she returned for her second round of attack he'd roll into her, nipping back at her chin and legs, really whatever he could get ahold of. Body flailed slighly and he rolled away from her onto his belly, head diving to the grass to slide back in her direction with more nips and kisses, tail thumping all the while.
(21:58:00) Nida made all kinds of strange sounds as she grabbed a hold of some loose skin, tug on it, and release -- and then, repeat. She stopped when Zod got her ear and made a whiny noise, though carrying the familiar friendly and playful innotation in it. Then he rolled into her solid body, budging an inch from the mild impact, harmless as it were. " Im gunn guhe' chu!" she'd muffle around his fur she would manage hold of for a short period of time. Her toes extended out to meet his throat as he nipped at her chin then legs, having her squim and twist at odd, very uncomfortable angles. He pulled away, and that has the she-wolf yanking her head up to lazily stare at him. She nosed into his cheek once he slid in proximity and slobber all over him, thoroughly enjoying play time.
(22:10:06) Zodiak was nomming happily on nida until a whine escaped her and he realized her ear was in his grasp. Tail thumped even more and he released her, quickly kissing the booboo before returning to nips and growls. "uhh uuuuhhh" he growled as he was pulling away from her before returning to receive a heavy dose of saliva to his cheek. Body settled down some and tail continued to pound the grass. Muzzle tilted up to nuzzle into her neck before much gentler kissses were given to her cheek and mouth. Everything in this moment felt good. They'd be ok, screw what drak thought! He wasn't the only one around here allowed to get nookie. He'd rise to all fours and give a good shake before a light nudge was given to nida, followed by more muzzle kisses.
(22:17:17) Nida focused on something else other than his cheek, like his lips. She licked the hell out of those, brushing her tongue over his muzzle and the at his teeth whenever the opportunity presented itself to the woman. His growling - appearing like grunts to Nida- has her stopping briefly, to turn her eyes onto something else -- those legs. The darkly furred she-wolf kept going regardless if he stopped with the play fighting, tail sloshing to her side, dripping. Automatically, head ducks to his shake, before she too stood, more dirty than ever. Water and dirt assured her it'd turn to muck and clump her fur together. Her face brushed into his. " I have to go to the alphas. Someone was interested in .. speaking with them."
(22:24:36) Zodiak observed nida as she rose, head tilting slightly. OH yeah drak was gonna know. How convenient that zod and nida were both wet and covered in mud. Ohwell he'd find out eventually. Zod perked some at her words, feeling tense as the thought of another stranger coming around was not very welcoming. Not to mention they had encountered nida. He'd give her a look as if wanting to know more but let the subject be. He didn't want to steal her moment or anything, besides, he had a lot to prepare for. He'd turn around and search momentarily before snagging up forgotten tail. Boy would motion to nida with a smile, fuzzy offering dangling from his jaws. He'd brush lightly against her, giving one final nuzzle before it was time to head back to the den.
(22:33:53) Nida glanced to Zod as he made a face she wasn't sure what for. A side glance was made to the other, wary with curiosity in the stocky wolf's countenance. But his tensing was not lost on Nida- she knew very well the pack still adjusted to these new, strange lands, and in their makeshift place called a home. If one wants to consider it such .. She lets him snatch up the furry tail he'd procured from Monro that fateful day. A nudge leading into a full nuzzle was returned kindly to Zod then pick up the pace to head for the den, mentally and physically prepared for whatever that was to come.
