(16:35:46) Jórvík's jaws tore itself apart from top to bottom, teeth lined in haggered rows, as he fished for his meal. His whole body, scarred and full of war injuries, was drenched in water and fishy fluids. His mound, an impressive feat, held huge amounts of salmon and other fish that were unfortunate enough to meet his teeth. Tongue darted out occassionally to lick the scales from his lips and snout. Long nails dragged across the earth as well, swooping up from his pile to consume a catch, or even to stop a flopping fish from escaping. While he fished, the massive brute thought of the past few weeks within Yellowstone. It wasn't as if he was new here, of course not. But it had been rather eventful, more so than ever before. That wolf, whatever his name had been, had gotten too close, and ultimately was disposed off. He didn't bother eating the corpse. It wasn't interested. No. Instead, he took care of the animal, and moved on. Now here he was, unknowingly back where the animal had originated from. woops!
(16:44:15) Zodiak had wandered from the den, too much going on, not to mention the putrid smell that rose from the smallish white child deemed mote. Stomach wretched at the thought. He pushed through the assortment of folliage, leg lifting to shoot hot stream of scent throughout the borders. The rabbit he'd left with was already gone, its remains dropped in some random spot along his trail. He was still a little hungry and knew nida prob would be too. However, wolf was alert, he'd not forgotten vads words about leaving by yourself. He'd prob be real stupid for dissobaying but he doubted he'd find anyting of interest this close to the pack hearth. That bear was just a coincidence.... Or so he thought until upon arriving at local water source, the damned thing was spotted. He froze..'shit...' Single eye would dart to the side to see heafty pile of fish. It was something zodi didn't get to savor as often as he liked, for... obvious reasons. So, at risk of being stuck with the idiot label, body would crouch. Slow steps pulled him forward, paws melting into the dirt with each step-pause-step motion he took. He remained as silent as the shadow of the beast itself, creeping closer and closer until the fish was just a snap away. Head twisted towards the foul smelling predator before jaws launched to snag several fish between fangs; as many as he could carry. If nothing interrupted this act, he'd quickly turn and get the hell out of there.
(16:53:06) Nida heaved a sigh pasted mildly parted lips as she'd began re-acquainting herself with the land. It'd been far too long. The stocky woman came across remains of a hare and the recently made marks, both which denoted she isn't too terribly far. In the back of her mind, there was myriads of thoughts occurring; and the crammed and manifested fret has her pace picking up. The mood in which was housed took a steep nosedive at the sight of a familiar wolf. What's worse .. where this wolf heads. Inwardly, her muzzle takes to spasmic twitches, disturbed at the sheer idiotic and foolhardy behavior. However, she does not move-- she simply remains where she is, in the refuge of the greenery. She rasped under a restrained breath, " god dammit .."
(17:05:39) Jórvík had been busily munching away at the fish as if they were a bag of potato chips. One fish down the gullet, get another one, another down the gullet, grab another one. It was a constant thing, and thus when he turned to grab another, his eye instantly caught sight of the thief. Well...not instantly enough. His body twisted as fast as he could, his arm swinging back, to possibly clip the wolf's hips or leg if he managed to get that far before the bear could react. Whatever he could get. Other paw would slam down where the wolf's head was previously, essentially smashing his fish beneath his claw paws. Anger coursed through him at the bold act. A rawr so deep echoed from his lips, and he instantly gave chase. Fury controlled him, causing the creature to let loose another earth shattering cry. He moved, slipping slightly due to the mud and his weight, before he essentially began to move with the velocity of a feight train. His frumpy, yet muscled body, ran as if a fire had lit right his ass. He wouldn't end his chase. If his hit from before landed, he'd bring himself to hover over the downed wolf, hand rising to issue a clawed strike upon the wolf's head.
(17:23:35) Zodiak was being irrational, underestimating the hulking creature for a sloth. Victory rang through his body when fangs snapped tight against a mouthful of fish. The thick aromatic flavor coursing through his muzzle. mhhmmm fish! Single good eye caught sight of the bear as he turned, widening in shock as a paw was heading his way. He scrambled, rushing to gain propor footing to propel himself forward. The seconds this took him would be his enemy as elongated claws swipped across his left flank to send hind end flying to the side like he was some rag-doll. Gdi why was it always the left? Yelp escaped him, causing him to release the fish from jaws as the bear came stampeeding his way. Quickly he fumbled to all fours, lip curling to reveal pearly whites as a deep intimidating (or so he thought) growl rumbled through his gullet and up his throat only to expel into the air in gurgled, raspy display of aggression. Hackles had already fluffed to their fullest mohawk extent and tail stiffly pointed behind him. Bring it bitch! He'd snap at the air before quickly veering 'round the bear's right. A bark of distraction would be given before quickly trying to maneuver to his other flank where a quick, yet solid bite would be delivered. That is given the bears ass hadn't already mirrored away from him. If teeth hit their mark he'd thrash his head for a moment before releasing to try and move out of harms reach... An act not as sucessful for a single target.
(17:34:17) Nida stayed devoted to the silence and conserve her emotions, deeply rooted from a flurry at the sight of Zod procuring a fish. At first she was overjoyed though, soon as the massive creature turned around, there ached overbearing pangs. Nida did not want to engage head to head with a beast so fierce, so powerful, but her packmate-- he was in grave danger! So .. foolhardy number two gave away her position with the rustling of the greenery, pushing forward to swift speed her legs and condition would enable. Her first thought was the bear .. get him .. fight him, but her stomach spoke something else. And she followed her gut. Arriving at the compile of fish, that is .. if she hadn't been noticed already, she'd raise her nose into the air. Thereafter an audible howl pierces the air, to grab its - and hopefully nearby Vechnyy wolves' - attention. God .. she's going to regret this .. and Zod probably won't forgive himself either ..! Of course, Nida would not stay in place for long to become an easy target; she has not just her life to consider!
(17:48:24) Cinnema had been relaxing at the den, contemplating life and what was going on recently. She still had to meet a good number of the members and spend quality bonding time with them, but she probably would do well to do the same with her children. That, and, the other two girls that had seemed so shown up under her sons' care. The least both could have done would be to keep them under watch and under control so they didn't go wandering off and cause trouble or something. Sigh. She would have to test them all soon, yes. That would work. She was calm until a howl reached her ears, Nida's voice traveling into the den, and causing her to stand from relaxed position and bolt in that general direction. She knew upon instinct that since there was rarely a howl from anyone in the pack, something had to be up, and it wouldn't be good. Even before she got a few feet from the den her nose was clouded with the stench of bear and fish in the sun, and her lips pulled back from her teeth in preperation. Fuuuck. It was back. And far too close to home. Not caring enough to hide her presence, at least she was quiet as her eyes took in the scene. Nida, over by the fish, and Zod, engaging the creature already. Well, here went to protecting the pack. With a snarl finally ripping its way from her throat, Cin would then bark and snap, standing before the bear's face with muscles braced completely to ready for its movements. Attempting to distract it so that Zodiak could get bites in and get out of the way, her eyes would be locked on the creature's and she'd move side to side to keep focus while being careful enough to stay a decent number of paces away from those claws.
(18:19:33) Jórvík was just about to swing his paw right at the brute's face, but alas, the canine was too fast. He growled in annoyance, and turned his body, however as he did so, he noted the woman going straight for his pile. "Damn, bugs," he yelled, his eyes bulging in annoyance. He ran then, completely forgetting the man, and instead, targeted the female near his fish. Besides, it had seemed another female had joined the fray, a pale fleshed canine, and she was getting all up in his face, and damn was he getting pissed. He growled, and began to move his body, it heaving to carry him from point A, to point B. The bites against his rump was felt, of course, but were ignored in favor of getting to the woman by his catch. "You little shit!" He lowered his skull, and moved to ram his body against the woman near the river. If she should move, he'd chase after, Jaws snapping at the woman's heel. If able, he'd reach a paw out last second, long nails hoping to clip the woman's leg as she ran. If for some reason, he failed, he'd keep the pace, yet switch trajectory for pale woman once more, the one who got all up in his grill, and would use his body to knock her to the ground if he was close enough.
(18:30:22) Zodiak was immursed in the conflict with the bear, so the howl that burst forth into the air caught him by suprise and his chocolate lover was spotted in peripherals. Fangs were clasped against the bear's left thigh, his bite seemingly not enough to penetrate the bushy mess as the bear went charging in nida's direction. NO! Fangs released and before charging he'd notice cin and give a heavy, growling bark, before launching himself forward toward the bear. Legs closed distance faster than he could think, all that flooded his mind was nida's safety and he'd do anything to uphold that. Tawny boy flashed up along the bear's left, fur nearly brushing against the beast as legs worked to catch him before he caught nida. How could he be so stupid? He honestly didn't think she'd be out here, but was also grateful for her appearence as it gave the chance to call the others to help. There was no way he'd best this creature on his own but it needed to be gone from their territory. When hips finally aligned with the bears shoulder, muscles would coil and launch him forward and up, jaws aiming to clamp onto the side of his face (near his eye,muzzle,ear), wherever trajectory would favor. If action succeeded he'd hang there thrashing like a fish out of water, something he saw great fault in but it would hopefully be enough to give nida the opportunity to flee from the scene. If he missed, body would surely collapse before the bear, tumbling about his limbs and either end up trampled or maybe tripping the beast.
(18:38:59) Nida's body remained bristled, very much alarmed. She saw the bear turn and pin her as the focal point to which has her struggling for a teensy breathe. The moment darn near suffocated the woman. It helped Cinn was here the second the howl was elicited, and her fur came to its half-smooth position. However, it did not remain there for too long, as the bear rushed at her. Nida's legs start for a scramble and to flee; however, when a thump sounds a rough impact of head against corner of hip, causing the woman to tumble gracelessly into the water and silt behind her, a coarse yelp leaves her. Water slosh and splashed around where she fell before the calm - minus the angry bear, snarling, and snapping - overtook. Her body ached all over. She wasn't pissed, nope! -- but livid! Flopping onto fours again to skirt around the distracted bear and toward its rear, she'd go for his stub for a tail and thrash around. That is .. if it still wasn't focused on antagonizing her.
(18:55:52) Cinnema didn't have the opportunity or even favor to notice or know that Nida was pregnant and thus this was a horrible idea for her to be there. OOPS. But none the less she would go about attempting to distract the hulking creature, until it turned away from her and went running for Nida who was attempting to go at the food stockpiled nearby. Oh crap this wasn't good. Any attempt at her pack's life was an insult to hers and this very large piece of shit was NOT going to get away with it. As Zod roared after the creature she took to her own desperate charge, her thin body letting her pick up speed quick to throw herself into the fight. As the scarred cracker went in to try to latch onto its face, Cin aimed her jaws at its shoulder with a mighty jump that would likely cost a bit but hopefully good enough to get her there. After all, Jor was distracted anyway. Instantly her jaws would go to tearing as claws would dig into the fur to keep her positioned there. All the hatred in the world going into the effort of injuring the bear that was threatening them.
(19:05:52) Vadimir had fallen asleep after the whole fiasco of last night, his body resting and his soul replenishing. He'd awoken awhile after noon, but had chosen to doze for a time. The courtyard was quiet, so why bother himself unduly so? He could handle the likely shit fest that was sure to occur, when it actually happened. No reason to go looking for trouble. At least, that was until an earth-shattering howl pierced his eardrum and set his heart to racing and his blood running hot and thick. So startled by the noise he rose to his feet in seconds, wincing as last night's wounds twinged and cracked beneath their scabs. God damnit.. Head whirled about wildly, ears pin-pointing the origin of the howl. That was Nida... last time he saw her she had gone after Zod to give him company while he went out on patrol. Oh no... Vadimir's paws flung out and Vad turned himself into a near blurr. The howl hadn't sounded that far away, in fact it seemed to be coming from their main water source. Where Meg's had been found dead. Vad's lungs chilled as fear grabbed hold of his heart and painfully twisted it. Even before he came upon the scene he could hear the thunderous clamor of battle, and his pace slowed as he came upon the instance of combat, what he saw belied anything he could have imagined. There was no time to think or calculate. There was only action. But even as Vad flung himself into the fray, he knew. He knew what Drak knew.... and with a deep inhale Tsar barrelled his way in. Vadimir, having sized up the situation at a glance, could only shiver in dismay. Not one of these rascals had ever fought a bear before, and it was obvious. As Vadimir closed in, hoping to be silent and undetected until his time to strike. He'd rush up alongside the bear, before taking remaining distance in a leap to try and enclose his jaws upon the bear's massive paw, if at all possible in mid-swing at one of his neophytes. Should he grab hold, moment paws alighted once more upon solid ground he'd thrash and dash, intending to pull the bear's arm at an awkward angle, all the while jaw's working furiously to apply as much damage to the digit joints as possible.
(19:40:19) Smug lurched to her paws in a confused haste as Nida's howl rang through the area. Didn't sound good at all. Hind legs moved a little stiffly at first, but as the woman forced herself into a sprint and pushed past the ache, it eased up. What was going on? Eyes scanned the courtyard quickly to find other Vechnyy members missing. Normally this wouldn't be a big deal but that howl meant something was happening and she was sure to not be the only one answering to her pack mate. Light-toned fur flashed before her eyes and olive gaze caught the tail end of a similarly running Tsar ass. Head lowered and jaws clenched as the earthen-toned woman buckled down and picked up the pace, kicking up dirt behind her as she ran. Sounds of battle touched her ears long before she set sights on it, further fueling her frenzy and pumping the adrenaline through her veins. The bear. It had to be. She only hoped that enough had heard Nida's call to band together and take the beast down. Paws skidded to an almost stop as gaze darted around to take in what was happening. Lip curled back in fury at the brute that dared challenge the likes of Vechnyy and growl raked its way out of her chest. Sights settled on Vad as he tried to draw attention away from the others. By the looks of it, no one really knew what to do or how to fight the thing. Welp, this was going to be fun... in a hellish sort of way. Smug would dash around behind the bear, staying silent and out of sight, to find herself on the opposite side as Vad. Their best chance was to get the thing off its feet and into the dirt. Woman lunged, back claws gouging the soil from the power behind it, and filed ivories aimed to clamp down on the other paw. She was just trying to avoid it being able to swing it and hit Zodi or the Tsar, knowing it could be a devastating hit if delivered right. Should teeth find their mark, whether the paw be mid-swing or planted in the dirt, the brawler would snap jaws shut like a crocodile and work those well-trained strength muscles. Paws would dig in to the dirt as she pulled with all her might, head thrashing, to mimic Vad. If the bear had been in mid-swing, she would fly through the air with it, bringing her body in to curl around it with forelegs to prevent it from landing its hit on anyone as much as possible. Fuck you if you think you can just come all up in here and try to hurt my friends. Asssssshoooooooole.
(20:18:51) Khutulun felt pain upon all sides, and it pissed him off to no end. He was eraged. First he'd concentrate on the man on his face. The pain was nearly unBEARable, and because of that, he rawred out, and moved to swoop up the wolf within his arms, and bring himself to try and lift the creature straight from thhe ground. If he succeeded, he'd lift upward, and the instantaneously slam the canine straight down onto the ground, hopefully knocking the air, and possibly conciousness out of the man. Of course a heaping chunk of skin would probably tear right from his face, leaving his cheek essentially ripped apart. Blood would run from his face if he succeeded in pile driving the man. Either way, his shoulder would be attacked then, and another roar would erupt. Then his paw would be ripped into! His butt wasn't saved either. In an effort to save his ass, he would push himself backward, and hopefully sit down right upon her head. His weight hopefully crushing her skull. If not ohwell. He would then use his other paw to swipe across Vad's face, claws elongated to rake and cause some damage on either the face, or back, depending on how quick the wolf would be. Though as this all went down, exaustion began to slowly creep itself up...leaving his breathing labored.
(20:45:51) Zodiak snarled in an almighty hell-driven fury when fangs sunk into the bears face. Mid-section wiggled to build side-to-side momentum so whole body would thrash against the bears cheek. Mother--ffffff-- MY HOUSE!! snarll growl. He could feel the movement of the bear and wondered how many of the others were helping. None of it really mattering once that movement shifted to wrap giant bear paws around his body. Ahh.....hell... Muscles tensed and coiled in preparation of what was to come as the bear thrust him down toward the ground. Body contacted with a loud yelp, air wooshing from his lungs and pain radiating through his entire body. This was it, he was dead. Done. He'd failed. Several short whimpers escaped him when realization struck that he was in fact not dead. He'd rush to all fours in an akward manner, head seeming to pull the weight of his body upwards before staggering movement followed. He swayed one way then the other before bracing legs outward and hanging head low as vision came into focus to find Not only Nida, cin, and smug present, but Vad as well. Releif washed over him in the fact that the tsar was present. The bears attempts at nida didn't go unnoticed and he rushed forward--or at least tried to before pained side's haulted him in his tracks. He was without breath for a moment as pain struck his ribs. He'd fallen pretty hard and everything was hurting. With a growl he pushed through it with more reserved movements, body rushing as quickly as it could. Hopefully, while the bear was distracted, he'd slip beneath it's head and hind legs would force his upper body skyward, ramming into it's throat before jaws sought to replace shoulders with fangs, grabbing hold of the beasts neck at the most delicate spot.
(20:51:00) Nida twisted around with intense and pent passion and anger vented onto the stub of the bear's tail. Her intention? To put it bluntly, she wanted to get this done and over with rather than drag it out, and to save any whom joined in the fiasco. Both forepaws dug themselves into the fertile soil as her shapely bump lifted and wiggled in the air, basically to tug and pull at the stub in a game of tug of war. Hopefully, with all this wild thrashing and heaving, the piece within her possession would cleave cleanly - or messily- off from the body. But as she felt the strain mitigate and the distance grow less genial ..? Nida inwardly panicked, receding, but not quickly enough. His fat ass sat on a part of her! " Aw, fuck me sideways!" would pretty much be snarled out, yanking her trapped paw tediously yet hurriedly. Nida got a chance to see there were additional numbers to their total, and felt reassurance. Well .. some ..! Her teeth sought to aim for the sensitive areas to the back, namely off to the side of the spine. Grrr.
(21:05:41) Cinnema felt that satisfaction as she got a hold on the bear's shoulder, and could barely hear others around getting holds and aggrivating this big hunk of meat that had not very wisely gone and gotten itself into trouble by killing one of them. So when she got there she went about tearing and shredding anything she got her jaws on. TAKE THAT BITCH. Ears pricked to hear Zod crying out as she attempted to rip up its shoulder and likely succeeding, letting her bloodstained jaws release and she'd slide from off it as she glanced about to relocate everyone. Its front paws were occupied, as was its butt, but his jaws were still very much functional. Well shit, that wasn't going to go well for poor Zodiak over there who'd already gotten the blunt of the fighting. Without more thoughts and in the span of seconds from releasing her hold, she repositioned herself with speed and grace to stand before its face as Zod was heading for the throat. "YOU MESSED WITH MY FAMILY" she'd attempt to roar as Cinnema charged and went right for what she would assume wouldn't be protected because of the brown fluffbutt after its throat. NOT THAT, any of that was probably legible and likely sounded like a bunch of screaming, with blood flying all over and jaws outstretched to latch on to one of the bear's eyes, or, possibly, the spot where Zodi had already torn from its face. FUCK YOU BEAR. One paw would brace right on the bear's muzzle while the other looked for a spot behind its ear to hold her up there while she'd thrash and growl if she managed to get her hold. If not, she'd likely slip back down and fall right in front of its face which would nooot be good in the slightest.
(21:15:04) Vadimir kept his mind on the singular goal; cripple the bear before any serious harm was done. Vad saw the paw coming, but all he could do was curl his head down and flinch involuntarily. Not like he could stop, much less let go. But when pain did not rend his form, he blinked, daring to glance over his shoulder for the briefest of seconds. And what did he see? Why, Smug of course. God damnit. If they all lived through this encounter, he'd have to thank her. Gawd damnit. When the bear's arm would go no farther, Vad would thrash and press onward, every muscle in his body bulging from the effort. He'd continue until the bear's paw was shattered, or his arm dislocated at the shoulder/elbow, or all three. If that came to pass, Vad would drop the lifeless limb and dart forward, leaping up onto that shoulder even as Cinn relocated her bite to the Bear's eye. If he could be swift enough to time it right, He'd aim shoulder right for the bear's temple, intention for his force coupled with Cinn's to knock the bear right onto it's side, in which case Vad would try to ensure Cinn's survival even further via jaws hoping to clamp down atop the beast's muzzle to trouble it's trajectory and cause it's head and neck to twist in an awkward, unnatural fashion. If all things went according to plan, Vadimir would find himself awkwardly slammed into the bear, his only source of leverage being his bite. Paws would try to right him, but in doing so he was liable to slip and tumble, upper body partially drawn up while lower half would be perpendicular to the ursine's broad chest.
(21:36:03) Smug. Fiery eyes ablaze with fury caught those of Vad as her paws anchored her to the ground and forced the paw to cease its trajectory toward him. Good. At least she had managed to save someone. Zod on the other hand had caught the short end of the stick. Woman could only be so many places at once. Olive eyes calculated where her pack mates were and what they were doing as she continued to occupy the large mitt with her maw, thrashing to and fro. Blood from the endeavor coated her pelt and splashed upon the dirt. She watched as Zod crawled under the brute like an idiot, even if it was to go after the throat, since if the bear came down... well it wouldn't be good. Cinnema and Vad then moved and she pinpointed their goal easily from their combined movements. Swinging her ass around, woman began to pull and thrash the bear's paw across it's body over to where Vad was, dragging it further off balance so that hopefully the Tsar's collision would succeed in bringing the brute to its side. As soon as things had been set in motion and paw was effectively either broken or torn to shreds, aching jaws would finally release and spit fur while hind paws launched her forward once more. This time her aim was for Zod since he was the most likely to draw the short stick again with this plan. "Idiot! Zod move!" Snarl would intensify her words while she quickly made it to him. Hopefully she would make it in time for teeth to wrap around scruff or whatever she could grab and yank him towards her and out of danger of being crushed by the weight of the beast. Using her strong neck, she would drag and swing him out if she could, then attempt to escape from the mountain of fur and flesh herself.
(21:45:25) Khutulun was slowly beginning to realize, this would be the end. However, he'd make it hell on all of them if he could. Another roar, and a few snarls later, his whole body felt overcome with pain. Exhaustion was clear now, evident. Blood pooled from his back, ass, shoulders, and now dislocated arm. Even his face was gettin it, AGAIN. He pushed his skull upward, trying to lift the female wolf upward, as well as the male who attached itself to his face. His good arm, despite having a broken paw on that one noww, would instantly go around to hold the female, and male in place, even while they tore at him, if. He'd let the woman latch onto his face like a leach. He'd then take the time to bite right onto the woman's belly, dragging his teeth right onto her flesh, and hopefully ripping some muscle, and essentially using his arm to fling her across the area as well, if possible, Then he would move on to the male, if he was in his grasp, and rake his teeth across his shoulder and side where the -the ribs met belly. The wolf on his throat was noted, as well. The weight of both males, plus female brought him to lean forward. At this point, he was ready to die, but he'd make it on his terms. The bear would force himself to stand from his sitting position, his body wobbly in it's proccess, as well as the weight of them all. At this point, he was flailing his good arm wildly, hoping his broken paw hit someone, anyone that was around him. However the pain upon his neck was enough to make the beast collapse, almost like a Titan from colossus. He creaked forward, suddenly stopping as his main artery was pierced. Blood seeped everywhere, coating both Vad and Zod, and anyone who was near. Then, suddenly, he fell forward, his heavy body literally crumbling atop those who had his front. His fat and huge body as deadweight atop them.
(22:04:21) Zodiak was playing a dangerous game; he was injured enough as it was but something drew him back into the fray. His pack was more than just a pack, they were family and they'd all put themselves at risk for something he started. Jaws had managed a hold on the bastards throat and he tried to growl through it all but the pain surging through his chest was too much. So silently he hung there with teeth clenched around fur and muscle, trying in succession to deepen his bite. As the bear rose onto it's feet a voice was heard calling out to him but he didn't dare let go, he was in a really bad spot. The bears flailing only made things worse as the burning in his side increased and quickly radiated round and across his chest. What the hell?! Bite increased and a pop was felt beneath fangs, blood surging out from where he grasped. He tried his best not to breathe it in but more trouble was heading as he felt gravity's pull as the bear started to collapse. Quickly bite was released to allow himself to drop, however, The bigger they are the faster they fall. Scrambling body was caught halfway beneath the bohemuths weight, leaving hind end trapped and a cracked yelp escaping him. He'd struggle to pull himself free but all the pain he felt was too much so with a series of whines, head would drag across the dirt and slow, labored breathing was all he could do.
(22:15:50) Nida tasted the lukewarm blood on her tongue and palette, enjoying the sample of scrumptious bear. Yum yum yum. She thrashes wildly up until the bear began to stand on it's hind legs, her paw freed, and stole several paces back. Just in time to see a wolf taken a hold of to be flung, somewhere paces from the bear and the rest of them. A strange sensation, akin to a rock settling at the foot of the river, hit her stomach. " Cin!" she cried outright, afraid of what bodily harm was done to her and the extent of the injuries. Nida wanted to run over to her, really .. she did, but the others .. if she can .. it'd help. Pulling away from the rear while giving fair distance she waited, observing and growing analytical, for spare seconds. Smug was helping Zod .. and Vad .. Oh noes! Nida ran to the fore blindly in order to play hero, to get a nice swipe of claws along the length of her neck and then a backhand. Totally didn't see that coming! The woman stumbled side wise, wincing, and aching all over, but not much like the others! Geez, she got a tap on the wrist practically! She's too slow with her rapidly growing body, clumsy on footing, and not to mention overwhelmed with what's going on. So, when the bear collasped, it'd only be natural of the woman to exude distress. There was so much blood .. and she didn't know whom it belong to. " GUYS?" She'd reach for Zod by the fur to the side of his neck to help him out, and proceed on the endless hunt for Vad under the mass of fluff and blubber.
(22:23:24) Cinnema's eyes would flash to Vad as she made her assault and he came up to join her in the assault on the bear's face, her teeth tearing with feriocity the second she got a hold of flesh there. HOPE YOU DON'T WANT THAT EYE cuz she's eating it. Not that he'd need them given the fact that they were killing him, hohum. She still braced herself even as the creature reared on back legs, body stiffening and tearing more desperately when his one paw would come to wrap her and Vad in an embrace. But she didn't let go until teeth were felt tearing into her stomach, causing a roar of panic that ended with a high-pitched whine. FUCK THAT HURTS YOU BITCH. Honestly she should've expected it but she was obviously more concerned with saving her pack's asses, or likely Zodi would've been more than just cut up. But that wasn't enough, no. The paw holding them would scoop her up, unfettered by the fact that she'd stopped in her onslaught, and sling her away like a disk. Through the burning pain in her belly Cin braced herself for the landing, paws reaching to touch the ground, only to go with a huge splash and spray of water skidding into the river. Not far in and causing rocks to scrape against her right side with one gash being formed, as well as paws burned by scrabbling for purchase. A few minutes after the initial dive which put water up her nose and another flop as the result of her trying to get up, she lifted herself upon unsteady legs and was able to get the fuck out of the water before she fell upon her stomach and leaned over to her side. Thankfully the bites hadn't been deep enough to cause anything super important to fall out, but her lower ribs were burning and blood was dripping freely as she struggled to focus and look around at where everyone was at. That toss really messed with her head, even if she hadn't hit it, and she was doing her best to not pass the fuck out. The contents of her stomach, however, were definitely not safe. Seeing as she'd momentarily set to unwillingly expelling everything she'd eaten and all the water from her little dip there. Hooolllyyy hellllll. Everything burned
(22:45:47) Vadimir everything happened far too fast for his reckoning. Vad had been born and bred to fight, and he'd lived his entire life doing just that. He could detail every move before it was made, lock onto any weakness and exploit it expertly. But in his efforts to preserve the life of his pack, of his... family. All expertise flew out the window, and it simply became about survival. The paw sweeping 'round to hold himself and Cinn close was registered, but there was barely aught he could do about it. When Cinn was flung from the maelstrom Vad snarled and whined, from anger and pain alike. The bear's jaws descended upon his upper back leg, raking it with bloody gouges. Forepaws came to wrap around the thickness of the bears neck. If he fell, then that was the end. The back of his neck and every other vital would be exposed. so he clung on, even when an errant flinging paw came out of nowhere and alighted across his back, turning snarling growls into a hoarse shriek of pain. Maw would release to relocate to the bear's lower jaw, wrenching it with all his upper body strength to twist and pull it aloose. Continued flailings would still nick him in many places, but he wouldn't budge. Not until it was over. And when the bear teetered, weight suddenly shifting forward with an urgent lurche. Vad would release his forearms around the bear's neck, all four limbs pressing out against the colossus's chest and torso. Vadimir would land heavily on his back, an agonized cry tearing from tightly clamped jaws as he felt something sharp and circular pierce his back leg, but he'd keep all four limbs rigid. Entire body trembled with the force of holding the bear up, and even with the entirety of his strength, he could only afford Zod, and whomever else might have gotten trapped beneath. For 12 seconds. And then with a massive shudder Vad's limbs caved and crumpled at the joints, and the bear fell atop him with a resounding thud.
(23:17:42) Smug snarls in frustration as she yanked at Zod but the stubborn ass refused to budge. She would only hurt him worse if she persisted with the motion. Woman was mostly unaware of the damage being dealt up top besides the sounds of growls and yelps of pain that echoed through the area as she dodged the flailing limb and assessed what to do next. Panic clutched at her for a moment before she got herself back in the game. That brief time allowed the bear to catch her with a swipe of claws finally, raking down one side and over hip to her rear. Well fuck. That hurt like a mofo. Snarling howl of pain erupted from her maw unbidden before warm blood splattered her from above. Zod had hit the sweet spot. Triumph lit her eyes momentarily as the tawny male dropped to the ground. Gaze then caught on the movements of the pale Tsar falling to the ground. It was like slow motion though everything was happening around her in a matter or seconds. Instead of darting to safety like a smart mutt, the woman would not allow the Tsar to sacrifice himself for the sake of everyone. Without him, the pack would be broken. Vechnyy needed him. Smug darted forward to land next to the male as he collided with the dirt, legs braced to absorb the impact of the beast. Growl from the struggle escaped while teeth ground together and shoulder and back prevented the mass of fur and flesh to envelop the two. "Fuck you and your 'I'm going to be the hero' attitude," she snarled between teeth. Limbs shook from the effort but luckily the woman had escaped most damage unlike the others and had been in near peak condition prior to the battle. This was what she was trained for. How many times had the humans weighed her down and forced her to swim or push or withstand before collapsing? Only now she had a much nobler reason than simple survival. The life of her Tsar was at stake from her point of view. This action also took mere seconds and soon the pale bastard's legs had caved. There was no fucking way she would give in. Nope. Eyes glared at Vad, urging him to move the fuck out from under the bear while the woman hoped help would reach them soon. Wobbly limbs would soon grow numb from the strain and buckle under the mass with a sharp growl.
(23:42:22) Zodiak felt like he was dying, everything hurt and breathing alone was difficult. Shallow, labored breaths were taken quickly. Fangs bore the pain of his experience as he felt there was no getting out of this. Thoughts shifted to Nida and the pups imagination could create. Would he even be alive to see them? What of nida? was she ok. He hadn't the energy to search, head lay limp in the dirt while bottom half smushed beneath the immense weight of the bear. Occationally he'd shift weight and pull before collapsing again with a pained huff. It didn't seem like he was getting out until jaws clamped onto his neck and dragged him forward. Every inch of it was painful, whines mixed with yelps blurted out until finally he was freed. He'd look to find Nida there and frame lurched to all fours--too quickly for recovering body. He ended up toppling right back to the dirt with a whine. Struggling, he'd slowly rise again, wobbling on all fours before looking to where nida had gone to. Vad was still pinned beneath the beast and like a crippled old man, zodi shuffled over, each step bringing pain, agony, and shortness of breath. He'd shift to wherever vadi was and collapse in front of him, muzzle stretching out to nuzzle against his, another whine exhurting from pained lungs.
(23:49:00) Nida was about to swoop in and be helpful .. up til Smug moved in. Oh .. well then, no need to come rushing over to him! Plus Zod was there to be all up in his face. Snort. Her eyes swept over the area to ascertain that there was nothing in the woods waiting for them, or for possible members belatedly arriving. Finally, she remembered. " Cin .." she rumbled gruffly, walking stiffly over toward where she is. Her hips hurt, from the impact on one side, and glancing against stones on the other, however she perseveres. She had to. Her head lowers slowly with the strain the foisted slashes brought to lick and nudge in the pale wolf's face, " wake up .." God, she look like a train wreck meeting another natural disaster -- she's all kinds of messed up. What's worse .. the injuries to her stomach. Her paw places over Cin's in case she decides to speak, if she is conscious. " I need help ...!" Her voice was wobbly, weak, and cracking under pressure. If only .. if fucking only ..
(00:04:12) Cinnema, battered and beaten up pretty good, still managed to get her eyes to focus on the bear as it went down around Vad and a female she didn't know. Heck, they hadn't met and she was still family. In that instance they were friends. Except, she couldn't keep her head positioned in that direction for long, ending up closing her eyes for a few moments to try to keep her breaths more even than they were and block out the pain. Not that she could do that well, given that they weren't fighting and all of it was just soaking in as blood soaked the ground everywhere. The monster's jaws had produced cuts that now burned and would've had her squirming because of it if she could've managed. As it was only her tail flailed, and she realized there was also pain around her shoulders from the claws and being flung. Then Nida's voice would reach her ears as well as licks upon her face and green eyes would snap open to try to focus on that blurred familiar face. "Vad, is he okay?" she'd rasp, almost in that moment trying to push herself up but the slight movement had her gasping again with her head gone spinning. Just.. y'know give me a minute guys, and don't die while you're at it.. She groaned and snapped her eyes shut, single paw raising to slide over her face. Where was her knight in shining armor when she needed him? Well, Drak was nowhere to be found, but Vad was, and he needed to be helped.. Yes.. Another snort of air would be the response as Nida called for anyone else to help, the sound ringing in her ears now and still struggling to stay awake, but for the time she was slipping. That had been some impact. Note to self: never. again.
(00:21:48) Vadimir's eyes bulged when Smug came out of nowhere to support him. What the-- "Voman, you're more trouble zen ze bear." He managed to gasp out even as body rotated to try and get paws underneath him. His forelimbs complied, but his back legs.... nadda. They flexed and twitched, but otherwise defied his efforts. With a vicious snarl he forced them to comply, rushing out from under the bear before spinning about to thrust shoulder against it, forced into a sit as he tried to hold it up. "GO!" He'd bellow, or by hell's thunder he'd charge right back under there and haul her out himself. If and only when Smug had likewise been free'd, did he colapse, his lower half awash in crimson tears. Dirt and grass flung up from the fight clung to the sticky liquid, and as Vad laid his head upon the bear's shoulder, almost companionably, he could feel his senses dimming. He'd had a full night's sleep, and yet he felt like he'd run leagues without stopping. Vadimir's breath was hoarse, and his body ached all over. Right side of his back had been torn open, adjacent back leg likewise shredded and bloodied. And the opposite back leg had a river stone partially imbedded in the upper region. Vadimir curled into himself as best he could, the agony such that he stopped feeling the pain. It was everywhere, everything. It was so structured to his very integral being, that it ceased to exist as a foreign entity. But in a quiet way, he welcomed it. For it was a signal that, tore the hell up as he was. He was still alive. Zod's comforting touch was felt, sensitive and inflamed as every inch of his skin was. Vad would respond with a small, light lick, before another shudder racked his frame. "Get ze vounded.... back t... to ze den..." He'd struggle to enunciate, but upon second shiver, his head flopped back, and he conked out.
(00:56:48) Smug forced a smirk and a wink onto her features as he chided her through the immense effort. Olive eyes watched him struggle to his feet with growing exhaustion racking her frame. The moment he was free, legs braced for one last push and head ducked as she leaped toward the opening. Falling short from the fatigue clinging to her limbs, eyes widened and bear collapsed onto her ass. Yelp sounded before she managed to wiggle her hind legs out and flop to the sticky crimson ground next to Vad. Her own side, hip and rear were stained in almost black while blood wept freely from the gashes there. They weren't too deep, but they sure were wide. The pain had reached the part of numbness that might have worried her had she had the energy. The Tsar was safe, Zodi was safe, she could hear Nida with Cin, they had all made it. Good. Vechnyy would not be the same while lacking any of its members. Her job was done. Well... almost. They weren't out of the woods yet. Vadimir's words reached her ringing ears and heavy head swung to look at him. The pale Tsar was in bad shape. Woman suppressed the whine that tried to form in her throat. Hell no. Instead, she twitched her limbs until feeling leeched back into them and she was able to push herself into a sit. The stinging on her ass reached her then and the earthen-toned woman cringed. Olive eyes found her own wound and assessed it. It wasn't near as bad as others and she still had mobility of her hind leg. No tendons or major muscles torn. That was a relief. Heaving herself up, the woman shook out her fur while teeth ground together to bite back the pain. Don't be a wussy now. CMON. She reached over and let tongue slide out to swipe across Zod and Vad's muzzles to let them know she was there. "This is gonna hurt boys, but you're gonna be ok." Probably among the sweetest things she's ever said.... she wasn't one for babying, but the dire situation of survival pulled it from her. "I'll take these two back then come back for you two," she called to Nida before teeth wrapped around Vad and began dragging his unconscious body back to the den. Luckily he would be too out of it to feel the majority of the pain and the den wasn't too far. Smug had to pause often to catch her own breath and calm her shaking frame before continuing. Depositing Vad in the den, she then went back for Zod, pausing at the water's edge to quench her burning thirst. Once he was back safe and sound, out once more for the last two. Luckily Nida was able to walk on her own so the earthen-toned woman only had to grab Cinn. Finally they were all lying in the den. Whole body was racking with shakes from the effort and blood loss while tongue lolled out and eyes drooped. Bleary gaze swept about the others before she set about cleaning Cinn's wounds. Once she had done her, on to the next, until finally passing out next to Vad's haphazardly cleaned body.
Solveig meandered into the courtyard, eyes half lidded as per usual, and swept her gaze over those gathered as she chose a spot to roll onto her side and stretch her legs out. The bitch had been out in the territory that evening, patrolling about and peeing here and there. She'd hovered for a few moments over a desiccated elk corpse, sniffing around and tugging on the massive antlers, before going on. The carcass was old, nothing more than dry bones and scraps of shriveled hide ribboned over the remnants of the skeleton. With a soft huff Solveig used one forepaw to gently paw at the itchy scabs on her muzzle before settling her chin on her white paws. The dry red bits flaked off even more from the scratching, revealing fresh pink scarring beneath. She couldn't wait for it all to fall off..the itchiness could drive someone mad sometimes.
Ammir had been taking a nap in his usual spot about the den's entrance. He loved bathing in the night there, come rain or shine. He didn't care, yet cause he stayed out in the rain he'd of course keep his pelt clean and neat. A bit of a neat freak when it came to his body fur, least as of recently. Thought at the sound of another coming into the courtyard, ears would swivel forward, tips barely touching as his head would jerk up allowing eire red yellow eyes to look at her. Hmm, would be heard from him as he'd search his memory wondering if he'd met this one. Probably not! Well then it's time to get introduced. And if he had met her? Well oops! Body hoping up as nub of a tail would move up as much as it could so he could hop down the rocks. He'd grown accustomed to being without a tail quite quickly. as he'd come to the ground head would move to the side as a wide grin would curl along his lips. "Hellooo there. Who are you? I've not seen you around." boys paws would tap along the ground as he'd trot forward closer to her with that grin still apon his lips. Of course she was part of the pack, she had scars to show for it and she so boldy came on the lands there was no mistaking that. "I'm not to good at distinguishing things. So the noticeable scars or missing limbs help me figure out who's in the pack." he'd say randomly, or seemingly in correct placement. he didn't know and it honestly didn't bother him!
Solveig's ears perked when she heard the thud of paws descending the rocky surface behind her. Her white head lifted again, turning as her ears pricked to see the earthen toned male approach. Her face remained unexpressive as he spoke, but the female pushed herself into a sitting position before responding. "We haven't met before, no. I'm Solveig." she responded curtly, her bright green eyes peering the male up and down. The first to greet her in a kindly manner, and an obvious wolf of Vechnyy by the lack of ears and tail..all appendages that she still held claim to. But for how long, she did not know. It seemed not a single soul here had all of these things intact, and it would only be a matter of time before she, too, lost hers. "You are...?"
Ammir smile still on his lips as he listneed to her. Ass would then drop to the ground as he would kinda kick his legs out and relax. "Ahhh Well Solveig, I ammm Amir." he'd elongate one word and said his name quickly and sharp. Head jerking up in a bit of posturing before he'd let a chuckle escape his lips. "Heh posturing.." he'd whisper to himeslf before he'd twitch his ears about. Taking note on the fact that the buzzing wasn't around right now. Awwwesome. yet even if the buzzing wasn't about males ears would still twitch every which way taking in any and every sound taht was possible to hear. "So! What were you out doing?" he asked genuinly curious. It seemed the loss of his tail didn't bother him, or make him so agitated. HE was still happy it was gone but annoyed cause it did still twitch back and forth. That, he didn't like. Dambed thing would be annoying. Thankfully when he sat down, the ground initially stops it from wagging. Yay for the ground!
Solveig's visage remained unamused as she gazed at Ammir, tongue peeking out to swipe over her stubbly whiskers before she would answer his question. "Scouting around, marking territory." she would answer shortly. Hm, this fellow must still have some maturing to do perhaps? His upbeat attitude had quickly gotten on her nerves, though the bland look on her face wouldn't give it away. The bitch was perhaps a bit intolerant of bubbly attitudes and upbeat behaviors. Of course, her socialization skills weren't top notch either what with having lived all three of her years as a loner. A stiff sigh exited her slightly parted jaws before her lips pressed firmly together. "How long have you been in Vechnyy, Ammir?" general conversation talk. Blegh, but...well..how else to break the ice? A sense of tension had risen quickly from her.
Ammir hadn't felt any tension during this moment. He wasn't bothered by my much, till the buzzing started again causing the males grin to turn to a snarl as he'd suddenly snap up at the air as if he was trying to snatch a bug. IT wouldn't be to far off if there was a bug buzzing around him for real. Yet there wasn't one. With a heavy shudder he'd turn those red and yeallow eyes looking to her as she'd ask him a question. "Hmmmm. How long.. Oh I don't know maybe 4-5 months. I keep to myself. Groups are insane. CAn't do it. to many things I'll have to listen to, to many things i'll hear. Fuck that shit." he'd say it make people wonder why he was een in a pack, he didn't even know honestly. Body would shift as he looked to her. "what about you? Miss Scar face." even though wolves don't watch movies male couldn't help himself. If it earned him a slap cool. If he got in a fight Awesome. HE didn't care! He was booored!
Solveig just stared flatly at Ammir a moment, watching as he snapped at some specter, and only her brows tightened slightly as he gave her a nickname. Of course she was going to ask. "Then why are you even here?" her voice was tight, ears loosely laid against her head. Even though her life had previously been lived as a loner Solveig was a quick to realize what being in a pack meant. She had her own reasons for converting to pack life and as such she would be a loyal follower. As she'd said before to someone, living in a pack meant living for more than just yourself. "So..what..you will be in Vechnyy and not contribute? You will take food taken in by others without bringing some in yourself? You will live, protected and sheltered, without patrolling to defend these lands? You want to reap the rewards of a pack and not give in return? Because that is what I hear when you say 'you keep to yourself' and..what was that...'fuck that shit'. Yea." her voice grew firmer and snappier with each word.
Ammir just stare at her like she was crazy. Ok one, he never took others food he went out on his own. Two you didn't have to be a big group person to be apart of a pack. IT was to help survive, and stive and what not. Head would sahke as she kept speaking, eyes rolling as she went on and on till she finally stopped. "OK! NO, I don't take food from the others, I get my own, I was alone for a year I know how to hunt and shit. Sooo Don't think that just cause I don't like being in a god damn group that I. DON'T. CONTIBUTE!!" Boy snapped. Lips curled up as he'd been flatly insulted by this chick. "AND OH, You can ask Tsar, Vad I went patrolling as well. CAught me while I was out. God damn.. Figured you'd be nice not some stuck up bitch. I don't like to be aroudn alot of people but company is nice. Get it?" he'd question her as if she was stupid and his logic was correct. It was in a way, to him. "Oh, the other reason I don't like groups is I can't smell so my site and hearing are stronger. So alot of people fighting, growling, howling, snapping, talking. CAn't stand it gives me a headache so why don't you get off my back." words flying out of his mouth as he just let them come from his mind and out. Honestly he didn't even think about a single thing he spoke. It just came all spewing out in his spit of anger. Though during his little triade of words his pristine fur would stand along with his hackles as his pupils dialated from his anger and adrenaline kicking in, causeing that Bright yellow to contrast with the black of his pupils and the glowing red of his iris's. Claws had curled into the ground as the male lifted his ass off of it to be prepared for anything. Of course he would know his words would piss the woman off. He again didn't care. Didn't mean he wouldn't contribute, he just did so whe people were asleep cause everything was much much quieter and easier to find for him.
Solveig seemed unbothered by Ammir's words. She sat stone silent, gaze flat and cold, as she stared at him. The bitch allowed a heartbeat to pass, her facial expression blank, before her legs uncoiled from under her in the blink of an eye. The female flew at Ammir, lips pulled back and teeth looking to grab onto his face while she attempted to wrap her forelegs around his neck to wrestle him to the ground. Her own dark fur bristled, ears flattened tight against her head as the sound of ragged snarling emitted from her throat. Solveig did not do well with being disrespected, herself. In her mind it was okay for her to be an asshole to someone, but if they were an ass back then it was on like donkey kong!
Ammir lips curled back as he saw her body tense to lift herself up and come to him. HE head enouth time as well to push himself up from from a sitting position allowing his long legs to lift and allow him to go under her open arms. jaws opening as he attempted to land a hard bite into her shoulder. Allowing the woman to get her paws at his shoulder, he should have the chance to actually sink his teeth into her shoulder. If not he'd do a couple steps forward in an attempt to throw her off balance as she tried to wrestle him to the ground his one legs would be back on the ground giving him a bit better balance, though he would be moving all over from her thrashing.
Solveig snarled as she felt teeth bite into her shoulder, but the forward momentum of her inital attack helped carry her forward. With help from her hind paws digging into the ground and shoving her body into him more her muscles would bunch as her paws would press on the male's shoulder in an attempt to use brute force to shove him down while her head dropped and jaws gaped open. With his muzzle attached to her shoulder she had a perfect angle to try to chomp onto his ear. With the extremely close proximity of the two wolves, the female would be surprised if he managed to move out of reach fast enough.
Ammir fetl his ear get bit, the sound vibrating within the canal of it. And a loud yelp would be emitted from his jaws as he'd ungrasp her shoulder from the bite to his ear. Shit! His fucking ear!!. HEad would shake to rip his ear from her jaws, if successful the ear would be tattered and ripped up. DEep snarl emitied from his throat as The male would then drop down quickly to throw her off balance and then move forward in a bit of a dart, in order to aim his teeth to snap into soft fleshy part of the thigh, not a bite that would sever any tendons, but able to make her bleed. It was either there or her belly, and he was srue that wouldn't be a good idea with a member of the pack so he went with a bite to the thigh. IF he wasn't successful in the forward motion his body would likely get pushed down from his shoulder into a bowing position.
Solveig held on tight to the ear, a deep growl coming forth as her eyes glinted. Her teeth would snap together even tighter, not just shredding the ear but effectively ripping it from the cranium as he tossed his head from side to side and she pressed her teeth together through the flesh. Her head would pull back, holding the appendage between her teeth as she shoved her weight downward even more upon the male..cutting off his attempt to dart away. She would shove him to the ground, forcing him into that bowing position, and spit out his ear before sending her teeth down to attempt to bite at the skin just under his jowl. This time not to harm, but to painfully pinch the skin and hold his head immobile.
Solveig held on tight to the ear, a deep growl coming forth as her eyes glinted.

This time not to harm, but to painfully pinch the skin and hold his head immobile.
Ammir body had somehow been shoved back down. Head would snap about as, teeth scrapping at anything he could get, not even submitting even if he was pushed in this position. When she came down to nip at his jaw he'd snarl out deeply and twist his head enough to snap at her face in hopes to snag onto something his blood getting all over since it was such close proximity to each other. Male was furious, now he only had one good ear to hear shit with. This bitch will pay.. Later though right now he needed to learn more about fighting.
Solveig snarled as she felt Ammir's teeth snag her lip, tearing the soft flesh. For a moment teeth would clash as they went into a bit at one another. Blood splattered down onto her opponent and in fury she bounced her weight on him as her teeth would snap at his muzzle in another attempt to grab ahold and firmly hold him in place. The female continued to lean her weight on his shoulder, pressing him firmly into the ground, her hind legs braced to keep her balance the entire while.
Ammir all but roared at the woman once he successfully grabbed her lip. Though once teeth clashed male would take the quicker turn and keep snapping into her flesh unless she actually moved her face away from his. The bounce of her weight on him would make him loose his breath but boy didn't care, it didn't stun him like most. Hurt like a mother fucker but he still wouldn't give up. Without thinking about it male would start to get his hinds under him and dog those dull claws into the earth and would push forward with all his might. Body pushing up and forward. When she went for his muzzle he'd move his head down so she'd snap at the air. Head down he'd push forward still. TRying his damdest to barel her backwards.
Solveig's hind paws dug into the ground at the force of the male's resistance. A deep growl rumbled forth as she used the advantage of already having him half down to forcefully bounce down onto him again as she switched strategies and turned her head to bite at his back near his hips. If contact was made her teeth would sink deep, drawing blood, and she would begin to shake her head back and forth to further tear and shred the flesh.
Ammir felt her body move forward as she'd go for his back, which in turn gave him the perfect opportunity to turn his head up and sink his Canines into her leg, teeth gripping into the fleshy muscle holding on tight. Since she was going for his back near his hips he was close to her back legs and could easily bit into her leg. She wouldn't have the opportunity to move it for he'd snapped his teeth around the limb the moment she'd moved to take a chunk out of his back, Which wouldn't snag, the skin there was flat and taut, so she'd only grab at his fur and a bit of skin. With that, he'd grunt lightly and bite down harder into her leg, male trying to drop his hips down as he'd use what he can to move from her grip. Since her jaws, and fore paws didn't actually have a hold on him. And he was moving about. Her balance on her front half would not be as good as her back half was. Which he had one of her thighs inbetween his jaws now, he'd wonder for a second what she would do, and if he'd be able to escape from her quickly enough.
Solveig let loose a sound from her chest that seemed a mix of a snarl and a growl when she felt teeth sink into her leg. As Ammir's hind end dropped down the bitch would dart her head back to the other side, jaws going for the loose skin at the back of his neck, just below his cranium, as he was now fixed upon her leg. At the same time she dove for the bite she would would finally step off of his shoulder while keeping her bitten hind leg in place to better bend and twist in to grab ahold of the scruff.
Ammir hadn't solely been staring at her leg while his teeth bit into it. The moment he felt her legs move off of his back he'd rip his teeth out of her thigh and would roll himself away from her, in the opposite direction she had been turning. With that the male would take the cowardly way out and take off, his ear still bleeding, breathing hard as he noticed that bouncing on his shoulders had moved and pushed muscles around. Yet the male would push past htat pain and would jump up the rocks. Hinds kicking clumsily off rocks as he'd get away from her. If she followed he'd just climb down a different way and keep running. He wasn't skilled enough to keep this shit up.
Solveig, for a moment, would snap after Ammir as he darted away but the chase only lasted a few steps. The female stopped her pursuit to watch the male scramble up the rocks and disappear on the other side. Her sides heaved, eyes narrowed, and blood dripped from the wounds on her shoulder, lip, and thigh. Her tongue would run gingerly over the slice that split her lip, wincing slightly at the sting and the tangy taste of her blood. More scars that would heal. The female would turn away, glancing briefly at the blood that mottled the kicked up earth, and moved a short distance away to carefully lay down and clean her injuries.
Ammir felt her give chase then stop as he scrambled up the rocks. Thank goodness. Now the male would go to lick at his own lips since the skin that'd been ripped from his back had started to bleed and the blood from his completly ripped off ear would stain the lighter colors of his fur. That was something he'd have to have stopped by someone. Head would lift to look over the rocks to see she layed down and he'd slip away to find a friendly to help him stop his bleeding.
