His brother grew weary. As he dropped down slowly and winced, like an old lion with arthritis might; Kafele looked away. Seeing him crippled was heart wrenching. Seeing his spirit broken was unbearable. He'd taken for granted that his older brother would always be a solid rock in the tempest, whatever life had to throw at them Kafele knew they would be just fine, because Afua would make sure.
But life had broken him. And Kafele was helpless to do anything about it.

Now they went aimlessly, no pride held them to one spot so they went where they pleased and lingered if it felt comfortable, moving on when the mood struck. They didn't talk about the things weighing them down. Afua didn't complain about the pain of his burns, scarred over and old, but not healed, they would never heal. Kafele didn't ask where they were going, or what they were going to do, but when traveling in somber silence became to much for him he would chatter cheerfully. He didn't know if Afua found it comforting or not, he could only hope so.

Their bond had suffered a strain that had been too much to bear. His whole life he'd felt a connection to his brother, not unlike a wire cable, solid, unbreakable, it didn't so much as stretch. And then one day he'd pulled away too hard and it snapped. When he came back their relationship was different, he could see in his brothers eyes that he no longer saw him as a child, he was no longer the baby brother. How long he'd waited for that day! The first time he saw it in Afua's eyes it was the worst day in his life, the price was too high, and he'd never meant for it to happen that way.

But their love for each other was still a strong as ever, the cable had been welded but the damage was visible. Sometimes the tension of things unsaid was so strong Kafele could feel it like an electric current in the air, but he felt he had no right to bring up the things he desperately wanted to talk about. It was selfish. Afua had been through too much, and was still going through too much for him to bring up difficult topics. Afua had no fire in him.. Anything he could say would only make it worse. Kafele kept his mouth shut and doted on his brother the way he'd done for him when he was little. 

And now in reverse roles, Kafele had made the decision to join a pack. The lion pride had been Afua's living hell, Sabre's had filled him with false hope. Maybe a wolf pack could be the answer. All he knew is that they couldn't go on alone-together with no purpose. Afua had always, ALWAYS, needed a purpose. Kafele was determined to help him find one again.

Afua had his moments of being aware and in the moment with his brother, and he also had his moments of walking with out knowing what was in front of him, he didn't notice the things around him, sometimes he completely forgot his brother was even there beside him.

It wasn't until they were well into the grasslands before he really came to and realized where he was. His breath caught, his heart rate picked up for a few long seconds and then he breathed out and realize that this of course, was not the savanna he knew. He wasn't sure if he was relieved or disappointed.

He knew Kafele was determined to re-join civilization, and he hadn't argued against it. His brother needed more then one sombre brother to be happy. Kafele was social butterfly; heaven knew where that personality trait came from for he was nothing like Afua or their mother, she never talked about their fathers but he could only assume the gregarious nature came from the paternal side. Despite being so different Afua had always enjoyed, even envied at times the way Kafele could make himself at ease in any situation.

He wasn't looking forward to the scrutiny and the questions from the locals, he hadn't been on this side of an acceptance in so many years. He knew that if he were a wolf and a couple of giants showed up at his doorstep the interrogation would be thorough. His scars wouldn't help the matter.
He layed down in the grass. The pain showed in his face too much when he stood, and even though appearing weak would likely help their chances rather then hurt them, the small sliver of pride he had left refused to show weakness. Instead he would feign nonchalance in the face of the strangers.

Kafele let out a soft call; a roar would likely be too much for a simple alert to the wolves, so he did his best impression of a howl. Afua took a deep breath and let it out slowly. Now he would wait for wolves to fall upon them, if the worst should happen and he called for his pride no one would come. Kafele's tail did not so much as twitch. Trusting, loving Kafele hadn't a suspicious bone in his body.

Recovery had been going well for her and she found herself throwing all her effort once again into her work. As opportunities to be a Whisper were few and far in between it only made sense that Iaera would find herself at Gemini's borders again. Violet eyes blinked against the harsh sunlight; reality being she was still not in the proper shape to be out alone but laying alone brought nothing but suffering.  A deep longing filled her motions and yet instead of going closer to society, she seemed to move further until she was at the edge of silence. Like teetering on the blade of a knife, for a moment the Ranger seemed to get lost in her head and in what seemed like decades she stood unmoving, staring into the distance. A daze of the same old same old after everything she'd done lately and it felt bitter.

Suddenly the odd call woke her from her awake slumber, small ears pivoted towards the sound. It wasn't a wolf that much she knew, not unless there was something wrong with it. Brows furrowed and tiny paws slowly creaked back into motion. Iaera edged thoughtfully towards the sound until at last she saw the odd caller. Lions. The woman's body froze and she considered for a moment calling backup but her sense of wellbeing was overridden by the fact that she was realizing she was tired and was ready to return. It had not been long enough for her to be healed completely and despite the lack of bandages some of her own wounds were still obvious. Thankfully her broken ribs didn't show.

The tiny wolfdog approached the pair with an over-exaggerated confidence, head and tail held high. She was not condescending though, Iaera wanted to seem certain, not condescending. "It was a charming attempt," the Ranger started with a small grin. "Welcome lions." Her thoughts drifted to Jonas, and perhaps another? She couldn't recall right now. "This is Gemini and I am Iaera," the smol doggo, tiny broken gatekeeper, "what is your business here?"
