✧ For the first time in a very long time, Nadine decided to rise with the sun. She stretched languidly that morning, using the sun to warm herself and loosen her muscles. The lithe serval then stalked out of her room in the pyramids, listening the the way her claws clicked over the icy floors and transitioned the the more muffled thuds when she slipped outside. Not many creatures were up and about to see her fade into a dot on the horizon as she navigated around the Blood Nile and headed to the Pines of the Shadow Veil.
She's not even that sure why it seems so urgent to see Ver. The canine lives in the Ruins part time now, practically her shadow, but her anger directs her to the shadowy trees to find her. It just seems more personal to confront her where Ver and her girlfriend live. Some part of her knows that she might not even be there, that she might be one of her other many groups, but the rest of her screams at that part to shut up. Nadine's on a mission.
The imagine of the two Veilers embracing so affectionately at the boarder keeps playing over in her mind, super-imposed over the times they'd each flirted with her. Is she angry because Ver is with Nightstar? Because she isn't with her? Because she didn't even wait for these kits to be born before she started getting it on with someone else? She doesn't know. Fuck, she doesn't know why she has any right to be angry. It's not like Ver ever promised to stay with her; she promised to stay with the kids. Their whole thing was supposed to be purely physical, yet here she is, the mistress, running with a fury to confront her taken lover.
Nadine looks around with a focused gaze as she stalks, eyes hunting for the dark form of the canine.
