It's all an adventure with a breathtaking view - walking a tightrope

    The best part of traveling was that the sky was never the same twice. Driftingtempest would think on this as he cranes his neck back, staring up at the sky through the conapy of trees. Today the sky was slightly blocked by the whispering pines. Spending the night here had been rather spooky thanks to the fog that filtered near constantly all around. He'd been tempted to ignore his fatigue and keep walking until they came upon a far less haunted place to sleep, but with some convincing he managed to get some sleep. He was glad he stayed, for the territory was absolutely gorgeous in the morning. Fog still lingering, the spooky atmosphere was completely washed away by the gentle light of the rising sun, making the mist glow like suspended rain. It was beautiful.

    Despite it being far too early to be awake, Drift would bound back to the den he shared with his sole companion - the one aspect of his journey that never changed. "Pen! Pen you gotta wake up" he purrs, poking his head into the den. Spotting his tawny companion the dragon-horned feline would grin, his chest fluttering at the sight of her. Bumping his head against hers gently, nuzzling her awake, Drift adds, "I have breakfast too"

  • IT'S YOU THAT I LIE WITH

    for the majority of her life penelope had been alone, a singular unit. even with her family, she had never truly connected with any of them. that had eventually led to them leaving her, fooling her with promises of adventure when in reality they had planned to get rid of her. after that had happened, the feline learned how to fend for herself. she wasn't keen on newcomers, and seldom gave them any time of day. however, it all changed when she'd met driftingtempest.


    drift brought color into the melancholic feline's dreary life. although she had been hesitant at first, she opened up to him easily and eventually began to trust the male. they spent almost every moment together, going wherever they pleased and simply living life the way it's meant to be lived. together. she cared for the other in a way she never had before. he made her feel happy, whole, like she had something worth living for. there had to be a word for the way she felt, but she hadn't a clue what it was.


    penelope stirred at the sound of her companion's voice, groaning quietly in response as she rolled over to face the wall of the den. the beauty was not a morning person.


    "'m sleeping..." she mewed sleepily, her words slightly slurred. her eyes fluttered open slightly as he nuzzled his head against hers, ears perking up when he mentioned breakfast. that was enough to make the femme rise, stretching her small body as she got up. her emerald hues set drift, admiring him for a moment before purring, "morning, minou."


    minou was her nickname for him, the french word for 'kitty'. she had called him that to mock him when they'd first met, but over time it had become a more endearing name. a yawn escaped the young girl's maw before she spoke again, "what'd you catch?"

    He snickers as she finally seems to waken at the mention of breakfast. "Hook, line, and sinker" he teases, which she, of course, responds to with her typical Minou. And of course, that makes his dark face heat up in an instant. He'd never once taken offense to the tease, but man did such a jest change. When did it start making his heart skip? He wasn't quite sure, but he was all smiles as green eyes met his brilliant ruby. It takes him a moment to snap out of it, and he's quick to beam with pride, "I caught us some fish! " wiggling his way backwards out of the den, the young man shakes himself off before looking over his shoulder, "if you don't hurry i'm eating it all" he says with a snicker pointedly hurrying his pace to scare her.


    He leads her to a nearby stream where a couple of fish could be found laying carefully on some ferns - protect them from dirt and all. Drift had already gutted the creatures and discarded the extra organs for some feral foxes to dig up later. Proudly chuckling, he shows off his little breakfast style arrangement - two fish on each leaf plate with some soaked moss for drinks and a couple of berries to share in the middle.
    Drift has never been shy about his courting, and so the little 'breakfast for two' makes him grin from ear to ear as he awaits her reaction, "Tah dah! Pretty great, right? With a nice view, too" he nods to the stream, it's sparkle highlighted by the fog still brightening the air around them.

    With the fog making everything but their immediate surroundings fuzzy, one could believe that it was just the two of them left in the world. He wouldn't mind it if it was - he enjoyed the time he was spending with Pen, and was grateful for every morning he woke up to her snoring in his ear.

    Unlike she, Driftingtempest hadn't really had a troubled childhood. Sure his dad was missing, but his mom was loving and kind, and he had plenty of siblings to spend time with...but...he just didn't quite fit in. Something in him just begged to explore. To scour the world for...something - he didn't quite know what but something in his life was missing. A black hole that ate away at him every second he didn't find the plug.

    When he met Penelope...it felt like he was one step closer to easing that weird pain in him. Helping her open up, talking to her, making sure she was happy - all of it just felt right.


    Today would be no different as he grinned, awaiting her response to his little breakfast date. He'd never considered before putting a name to his feelings, but he knew that he'd never had a friend like her before.

  • IT'S YOU THAT I LIE WITH

    the feline's heart swelled as they made eye contact once more. simply put, she adored the boy before her. his cheesy grin never failed to put her at ease. penny followed him out the den they shared at a leisurely pace, yawning once again. she gasped at his teasing threat, bounding after him quickly, whining, "you wouldn't!"


    she hadn't a clue where the other was taking her as they trotted through the scenery. this was the life she cherished so deeply, the beautiful wildlife, the clear blue sky; all made sweeter by spending it with driftingtempest. penelope simply couldn't imagine spending her days differently. he had become everything to her, the only person she could ever be so truthful with, so candidly herself. as their paced slowed, the young girl could feel the heat rising to her cheeks as she took in the scene before her in awe. a dazzling smile lit up her face as she looked from the idyllic set-up to her companion.


    "it's lovely, drift." as always, her words were soft, almost shy. it was thoughtful of him to go through the effort of doing this, especially when it was so early. it wasn't as if this was new- he was always incredibly kind to penny despite her cold demeanor in the beginning. it was all still new to her, though. his affections still flustered her immensely, although she had become much better at hiding it. gracefully, she sat herself in front of one of the leaves, waiting for him to do the same before she touched anything. her emerald gaze held his as she fondly mused, "you never make our breakfasts so ornate. what's the occasion?"

    Drift’s grin grew even wider when she smiled in that dazzling way of hers. Once, it had been such a effort to get the young woman to stop glaring at him, let alone to smile. He felt almost spoiled with how easy it was now, but oddly enough it just made him want to work harder to see her shine like this. Tail waving back in forth- similarly to a dog wag - he purrs, "Does there have to be? " sitting down on his spot, he picks up a berry, rolling it in his fingers as he says, "I figured we may as well enjoy this unique morning before we head out traveling again - I don't think any place we visit now will have fog like this" Of course, that wasn't the only reason. He simply wanted to impress her, show her the brilliance of the morning scenery and hope she enjoyed it as much as he did.

    Or, well, that's the reason he wanted to believe.

    In truth, while he did want to share this lovely first day's light with his companion, that wasn't entirely what convinced him to make the event so much more special. He just had a weird feeling lately that something wasn't right. Like every passing day he was wading through thicker and thicker mud and if he kept going like this he'd -- No. No, he refused to acknowledge this dreaded feeling. What feeling? Drift didn't know he wasn't thinking about it!


    Popping the berry - he was pretty sure it was a blackberry- into his mouth, he nods to the fish, "Go on and eat, when we're done we can explore a bit before we get chased out again" he snickers as he thinks about the last time they camped out too close to a border. Man, clan creatures could be so stingy! "got any places in mind to visit?" he inquired once he swollows his first bite.
