I jerked my head upwards, suddenly alert as I saw Blitz standing there. I jumped up, holding back a flinch at the pulsing pain.
Blitz narrowed her eyes as I lifted my back leg closer to my body. "You're hurt?"
"I..Er.." I lowered my head in awkwardness "I fell."
Blitz seemed to have stifled a snort. I narrowed my eyes.
"Sorry," She barked in a hushed tone.
"Oh no, it's fine," I growled teasingly.
She crouched down, looking ready to pounce.

"Oh, why you-" Her gazed suddenly drifted to behind me and her posture straightened.
"We're not here for pup fights," She whispered.

I followed Blitz into the center of the clearing.
"You know what happened here," She began, before I cut her off.
"The dog attack."
"....Yes. The dog and no-pelt attack."
"Oh, right." I twitched my tail.
"Well. After the dog chased you out," She continued,
"Before I ran from it," I muttered under my breath.
Her gaze sharpened "What?"

"Oh. Nothing."

There was a moment's silence before she went on.

"After the dog chased you out, the no-pelt went after you two. It was the only thing I saw that day before I was put into the..Er..Pup's den." She looked sadly towards the big tree-rock.
I followed her gaze and stared at the small overhanging branches with a sigh.

"Anyway," She continued abruptly, "The next day I was allowed out for a bit. Lots of wolves were hurt, but Fern..."
She sighed. "No wolf could save her. She was the first to get attacked by both the no-pelt and the dog. It seemed they both wasted most of their energy on one wolf.."
She sighed. "It could have been someone else, though. Not her. Just not her."

I remembered with a start that Fern was Blitz's mother.
"Oh.." I murmured.

Blitz looked at me, her eyes glazed with sadness.
"Then more no-pelts came. They had more of the wood and metal sticks that the one used on Fern. The leading no-pelt stuck the stick in the air and made the same loud noise, then the rest of them began...Attacking us, too."
She shuddered.
"Shadow led me, Blaze, Mona, Bandit, and Ace out of the camp. The rest were hidden and just too weak. He said that we had no choice to defend them, and just started running. He was out of my sight by the time I realized they were gone, and I decided to come back."
She sighed before continuing.
"The wolves were all gone by the time I came back, but there was no sign of a struggle.."
She sniffed.
"I guess the no-pelts took them."

I stared at her. "And you've just been living here?"
"Well, no. I come back every so often, but I don't hunt around the camp or anything."
I twitched an ear, the straightened.
"Blitz.." I began, fumbling for words.
"Yes?" She asked hesitantly.

I let out a sigh. "If what you're saying is really true, then everyone isn't dead after all."

Well, I mean wolf packs are typically family, so I dunno. It wasn't my intention to have people ship them though, you see. So Blitz would probably like, be Ebony's cousin or something.
