Good luck with that. :p

I nod and he leaves with Crescent; not turning back. I turn to Eclipse, "Here are the pups," She nods. I bend down to the pups. "We'll play tomorrow. I need to go hunting." The pups' faces sadden. "Okay, then.. Can we come?" I shake my head. They droop their heads and tails as they follow Eclipse; who seems to want to talk to Sundance. I run over near the lake to find some prey. I see a fair-sized deer; separated from it's herd. I stalk it and kill it; biting it's throat. I sigh. "Oh, hunting buddy... It's not the same without you here." I shake my head and go back to the pack.

I roll my eyes as Gibbous hits that last tone with Malarius. I whisper under my breath, "You could always be nicer; you've been grouchy ever since you found out. Even with Crescent present." I shake my head. The meeting ends and the pups share a few words with Malarius and then Malarius heads off near the lake. I coax my pups. "Come, Crow and Dove. We must meet the alpha." They nod. We go into the den and see Sundance who was facing the wall, sucking the pups. Alcor was one of them. Crow and Dove howl, "Hail!" All three run to each other, chorusing their grief of being apart. "It's Alcor now," Alcor yelps. Crow and Dove stick out their tongue in disgust. "Ew, Hail was better." Alcor flattens it's ears. "Hey, it's not my fault!" The three pups play as Sundance's older pups stop sucking and play outside; just leaving me with Sundance.
"Are you expecting pups? Who's going to be alpha while Gibbous is away? The pack will be weak, as long as there is only one alpha."
