    Valen approached the house with his new companion. The sun was already dimming over the tree line but the summer warmth was still present and uncomfortable to the Jotunbrud man and the hulking mass of fur next to him. “It’s cooler inside” he promised to his new companion absentmindedly. The winter wolf let out a slight *chauf*. Valen new that this animal was intelligent, he knew it was deadly, and he knew he didn’t speak the same language, but it seemed to understand him on some level. Valen smiled as the front door flung open and he was rushed by his small son. The child called out “daddy!” As he ran forward In excitement that was immediately sniffed out by wonder, amazement, and fear; stopping the boy in his tracks. The winter wolf growled lowly. Valen looked once at the wolf before it stopped. The adept walked over and picked up his son. “It’s okay buddy, this is Mints.” He gestured to the winter wolf. “He’s going to be staying with us.” “Oooh.” Was the only response Valen’s pup gave. “Want to say hello?” The boy hesitantly nodded. Valen let his son down and the boy carefully walked towards the large wolf with his hand outstretched. A large shadow grew behind the boy as the Shadowfang coalesced, daring the unfamiliar animal to make an aggressive move towards his charge. The winter wolf sniffed at the boys hand and began licking what was likely left over lunch that hadn’t been washed off properly. The boy giggled. “This is Shadowfang” the boy said to the winter wolf. As he spoke the towering presence of the shadow spirit took its full form and sniffed at the new animal that had been given its boon. “Well, let’s get inside.” The adept stated as he moved towards the house. The boy joined him and took his fathers hand as the two massive dog creatures stood behind and felt one another out. Valen let out a short whistle and the two dogs joined him, one falling back into his sons shadow while the other took up step next to its new family.

    As the Adept stepped inside the home he motioned towards the couch. “Why don’t you two take a seat and I’ll go fetch the others to meet our new guest.” “Kay.” His son said as he climbed up and called Mints to the couch. The winter wolf sniffed around the living room before it carefully climbed up next to the child and flopped down, wagging its tail playfully in the child’s lap and face. The boy pet the animal before switching to a more comfortable position involving the beast as a pillow. The wolf licked at the boys face before settling down.

    “Flowers is going to flip.” The Adept said quietly to himself as he searched the house for its residence.

    Shining Mirror had been sitting on her room over a mandala painting. She liked adding to it while she let her mind relax in meditation. She added some silver baubles to it and smiled at the thought of Papa Tia thinking she was gorgeous. She knew she did not seem the vain type, but she did put some stock in physical appearance and it did mean a lot to her. Even to speak to an aspect of a Fate god was such an honor, but to receive a compliment from one who shared a sphere with her gods… Shining Mirror grinned.

    She heard the excitement of Pup in the otherwise quiet house right away. She pushed her door open and peered down the hall. She thought she saw a great furry mass pass by but… That didn’t make sense. Then, of course she saw Valen coming down the hall. She must have mistaken some part of his furs for a living animal. How silly.

    Shining Mirror put her brush in the jar of water, closed her paints so the children could not get to it and straightened up. She walked over to the door of her room, “Hello, Valen. Welcome home.”

    “Hehe, hey mirror.”  Valen laughed nervously and scratched the back of his head.  “Got a bit of a surprise downstairs… don’t freak out ok.”  He continued to laugh as he traveled the rest of the house, looking for its residents.

    Sunday morning rolled around and Flowers didn’t linger long. It was just barely sun up when she arrived to collect a different set of things.

    The gnome went off into the surrounding woods and spent time checking on her aetheric friends. Bees Knees was still a grump and the other three were slowly warming up to her. Over time they managed to get a bite or claw in but it wasn’t anything she wasn’t used to.

    Day turned into night a few times and she knew tomorrow would be the day she’d actually have to work for food.

    “But I’m so lazy,” she sighed to herself.

    Flowers stood, collected her things and gave herself a once over. Starting in the direction of home, she hoped no one would be about.

    “Silly me to hope.”

    She noted muffled giggles while stepping toward her door. As she pushed the heavy wood open, the first thing she noticed was the smell. Next the mound of fur but what got her was that it was very alive and well.

    “Why is there a winter wolf in my living room?”

    Her question was said at an almost whisper while staring at it.

    The large wolf lifted its head off the arm of the couch and stared at the gnome.  As it sized up Flowers the pup climbed over the animal as though he had known it since birth.  “Daddy got us a dog!”  The small boy said with a smile as he collapsed onto the wolf in an awkward hug.  The dog licked at the boy and went back to resting on the couch.  “Flowers!” A voice yelled through the house.  “I’ve got a surprise I’m sure you’ve already seen.”

    As valen and the wolf came up to the house Devlin was out behind the house finishing up skinning and cleaning his kills from the day’s hunt. Hanging from the rack was a bear and a few deer, “Welp all done here” he quickly carved a chunk of meat from the bear and walked in the back of the house towards the living room.

    Tranquil sat in her room telling her brother about all that had happened during the weekend. She was teaching him all she learned about blood types.
    “Asch, a Wild Elf had muddy reddish-brown blood. Al and Crow’s blood looked like any human’s. Blue’s blood was really cool. Definitely the coolest blood I’ve ever seen.”
    The gnome trailed off as she went more in depth about different race’s blood types.

    She could hear people talking downstairs, but figured someone would come get her if she was needed

    A knock was sent across Tranquils door as Valen peered inside her room.  “Oh, hey you two.  Thought you headed back by now… umm.  Tranquil there’s a surprise downstairs.  I’m sure it’s nothing worth your brothers time sooo…”. The adept headed back through the house.  Double checking rooms.  ‘Wonder where Devlin is…’ he thought before he heard the familiar sounds of wood cutting.  “Hey, Devlin.” The adept shouted out one of the windows overlooking the backyard.  “Come to the living room.”  Valen headed back towards his ‘surprise’.  Flowers stood in the door way, seemingly still flabbergasted at the presence of the winter wolf.  “His name is Mints.”  He told his friend.

    There wasn’t enough air in the world for the sigh necessary to describe her feelings. Flowers continued to stand for a moment silently cursing him. She could already see the doof grin on his face.

    “So he did, huh? Just don’t get eaten!”

    Flowers replied playfully in tone though it was a genuine fear of hers. Before she knew it, there he was just as she expected.

    “Like the candy or that thing that teeth and claws might do to you in your sleep because there’s a wild animal… in my house… Is it even safe? Will it eat my cat? Will it eat me?”

    Flowers folded her arms in attempt to be casual.

    “Where did you even get the thing?”

    Tranquil finished telling her story to her brother and headed downstairs.

    Making herself comfortable on the couch she asked about the large wolf in the room. The gnome reached out to pet it but pulled back deciding she didn’t want to smell like wet dog.

    “Who’s this big guy? Where’d he come from?”

    “His name is Mints, like the herb. I got him while training with Sister Talia. He’s part of the family now. Check his neck, he’s got a talisman. He’s safe enough.” Valen said to Flowers with a ‘doofy grin’.

    “He may have a taste for gnome feet though.” He added as tranquil sat on the couch. The winter wolf licked his chops and looked around the room, moving the pup back and forth as he inspected the new people and the new area. “At the very least he will help with hunting and keeping the kids safe while we are away. Tink and Mals mom can only do so much.” Valen flopped into one of the more comfortable chairs as the conversation continued. “He won’t be an issue.” He said as he stared down the wolf. “Will you.” He said, his tone turning cold and almost threatening. The wolf let out a slight *woof*. The animal sniffed at Tranquils feet without even leaving the couch. “Careful there tranquil. I wasn’t joking about the feet thing.” Valen said with a wink.
