Time: Sunset, a few days post hatching
Sunset was the usual time for Mykel and Halia to meet up. Just as the day handler was finishing his day of patrols and other duties, Halia would be starting hers. Normally, Mykel would have been meeting with Halia a lot more often, but out of respect for how exhausted she must be with her new bond, he kept away. But Mykel ws not patient in the slightest, and even Jezebel agreed that it was completely unaccaptable that an entire four days had passed since Hask's hatching without their meeting the latest member of their pack, so Mykel had borrowed a flit from one of the other day handlers and sent it with a message to Halia.
For once, Jezebel and Mykel shared the exact same level of enthusiasm. Mykel was astride Jezebel's back as the rose day wher trotted down the tunnels. They had just returned from the day's patrol, and were sweaty and tired to show for it, but the prospect of seeing new family brought a spring to Jezebel's step. Fortunately, they were not weighed down by heavy tack or armor, as Mykel and Jezebel had shed that all upon returning. Mykel was dressed now in a light tunic and shorts, and Jezebel tackless.Commons, usual time. We wanna meet Jez's new little sibling! -M
Though they still recieved odd look sfrom some of the night whers, Mykel and Jezebel were well known by now for their regular visits to Halia. So they managed to speed through to the commons quickly, uninterrupted and unchallenged. "Hal!" Mykel clled as he and Jezebel burst in, sliding off of Jezebel's back. Briefly, his muscles reminded him that he had just been on a patrol, and a long one, but Jezebel thrust her head under one of Mykel's arms to steady him until he had regained his footing, before stepping back and snorting a hello to Halia and the...the two wherlets?
"A green...and a blue?" Mykel burst into a giant grin. "Why Hal you wherry, you didn't tell me you had dual bonded! Congrats!" The day handler knelt down by Jask, throwing his arms around the blue in a giant hug. "Hey there, new family!" he said to the blue in absolute delight, trying to kiss him on the nose. "Welcome to the world! I'm your uncle Mykel, and there's Jezebel, and we're going to have so much fun!" He glanced up at Halia. "I don't care what you say, Jez and I get to teach them how to hunt." he grinned.
Jezebel, meanwhile, padded over to sniff at the second wherlet, Hask. Little one. she said affectionately, and that's when she felt the surge of Caretaker protectiveness kick in, the desire to raise this little wherlet and care for it as her own. Welcome to the world. Now I'm glad we met you early, we can still make a proper day wher of you yet. thoroughly deciding that she these two wherlets were her own, Jezebel settled down and quickly began washing Hask with her rough tongue, cleaning off the wherlet's hide of some imagined dirtiness. Now if your hide is even the slightest bit dirty you have to either get it yourself or make your handler do it. Dirty hide is unhealthy hide. she lectured, just as if she were scolding Mykel about keeping his hair clean or scrubbing underneath his nails.
