DotW - Valda's RequestValda has called for you.
The words had frightened Moth so much that she couldn’t quite remember who had spoken them. Valda… asked for Moth? Her specifically? By name? It had sent a tremble quivering down her spine unlike anything else had felt before. Why? What did Valda want of her? The mild Witch Doctor had successfully evaded the spirit’s attention since the moment her four tiny paws landed in Fellfang, despite how deeply her own son had been woven into Valda’s inner web.
As the faceless messenger had urged her forward, Moth had quickly been consumed by her own thoughts. She followed the wolf she couldn’t recall with the urgency that was required, but looking back, she didn’t remember ever making the choice to walk. All she could remember were the thoughts… why her? Was she in trouble?
Was Misha in trouble?
Her eyelids drew close in a squint as she adjusted, from the bright Spring sunlight to the gloomy turquoise

She had been walking almost all day. Calida was up even before the sun’s rays broke over the horizon. She had decided that today was the day she would walk to the west end of Fellfang’s territory. It was the best way to clear her mind and temporarily escape all the negative energy that seemed to hang near the main den site like a thick fog. The Hunt had recently taken down a large elk bull, so she knew the pack had plenty to eat and she could leave without the worry of having an empty stomach in the pack.
Throughout the day she passed by numerous Fellfang landmarks, like Besteng, The Crystal Run, Raefnwood, Burnfeiger, and now she was in Grenmyrk Forest. The trees were so tightly packed and all the vegetation was so thick that barely any of the sunlight could penetrate through the greenery. This was going to be the last stop before the she-wolf turned and headed back. If she walked anymore towards the west, she was going to encounter Drau-Alor, and a haunted dead tree was not something that Calida was planning on visiting today.
So without further hesitation she turned herself around and began to make her way out of the, slightly eerie, thick forest. Something caught her attention on the way out though, a small bunch of mushrooms. Interestingly enough, Calida enjoyed mushrooms. They were not her all-time favorite treat, but she would not turn down the opportunity to eat one. Though the cream wolf knew to be careful about which mushrooms she ingested. She had learned what color and shape of mushroom to stay away from to avoid poisoning herself. Luckily, this bunch passed the test, and it actually had a very strong resemblance to her favorite type of mushroom. So Calida decided to treat herself to a small snack. She bounced forward and began to hungirly scarf down the fungi. By the time she noticed that these ones had a slightly different taste than what she was used to, they were all already down her throat. She brushed it off though, she figured that these ones might have been a younger bunch, since they were also a bit smaller in size. With that done, Calida began heading her way back home.
After about half and hour of walking, Calida began to feel a bit...off. The grass seemed greener, unusually greener. But she thought it might just have been the change in land. But her her hearing was also different, each footstep she took sounded like it was amplified. The she-wolf thought that maybe not having an adequate meal before her long journey was the culprit to her altered senses. So she did her best to ignore it and continued to push forward. But with each minute that passed, things only got odder. About another thirty minutes later, Calida had to take a seat. It seemed like the ground was shifting, but in a slow and smooth movement, almost like honey. She looked up and the setting sun seemed like it set the whole sky on fire, literally. The whole sun had a huge halo around it, and each ray that popped through the trees seemed like it was burning a hole into the ground. That was when Calida began to grow worried, what was going on? What was wrong with her? But the stress only made things worse, everything began to shift more violently and her ability to concentrate began to dwindle. She laid down, shut her eyes tight and covered her white-tipped ears with her paws. “Breathe, Calida,” she told herself. “You’re going to be okay, the ground isn’t actually honey, that’s impossible. You know that. There has to be something else wrong, think. What could it be?” Thankfully, her mind immediately went to the mushrooms, and that was when this whole situation took a turn for the better. She instantly calmed down, and a huge smile spread across her face. She decided to take a small break, but due to her altered state, what was suppose to be a ten minute rest, turned into an hour rest.
When she finally opened her eyes again, the whole forest seemed like it had been pulled from a dream. The trees were as high as mountains, and the branches swirled and slithered like snakes. She stood to her feet, and all of a sudden she was taken to the treetops, she stood next to the leaves! She looked down and was shocked to see that her legs had grown to an incredible length, five times taller than the tallest tree in all of Fellfang.
“Woah…” she giggled like a pup. She took a step forward with each leg and it seemed like she had already traveled a mile. “I’ll be back in Starheim in no time like this! But I kind of want to enjoy the forest…” she thought to herself. So with one big jump her legs shrunk back to a normal size and she began exploring the forest floor. The ground bounced and flowed like the ocean with a layer of grass on top of it that was as soft as a rabbit’s pelt. Calida began prancing around like a fawn would around its mother. All of a sudden, she heard the chirp of a bird that seemed to roar in her ears like the bellow of a grizzly. She turned and was surprised by a Starling that had the rainbow glowing in each of its feathers, Calida was mesmerized. Some feathers were made out of water, while others grass, and a few of them even fire. But its beak, it was made out of the sun! The brightness seemed to blind her, but she wanted to get a closer look. She tried her best to take a few quite steps forward, but the bird detected her right away. As it flew up, raindrops and shards of grass fell from its wings and showered Calida in the most pleasant of smells and sensations. She looked up at the bird and that’s when she noticed the sun was beginning to set. As each ray of sun grabbed the other and they all together made their way under the horizon, they called out to Calida. “It’s time to go to bed now, Calida,” they cooed. With an obedient nod of the head and a crooked smile, Calida did as she was told. She stretched her legs back up so she could be as high as the mountain tall trees and found a comfortable spot in a treetop. As she curled into her own body, each leaf hugged her fur and gave her a goodnight kiss. It wasn’t long before she dozed off into a deep sleep.
When she woke, she was greeted by a very different scene. She had fallen asleep in a bush and was covered in twigs and leaves. She let out a low groan as she dragged her way out of the bush that poked and prodded her with every move. A good shake flung off most of the debris, but she still had to pick twigs, branches, and leaves out of her coat. She looked around to try and assess where she was, and judging by lush green scenery, she was in Raefnwood Forest. She also noticed that all of the grass around her was dug up and the vegetation was disturbed. She looked back to her coat and noticed that it was stained green and brown from grass and dirt. What she thought was her prancing and running around was most likely just her stumbling in circles and falling to the ground. How embarrassing…. She squinted her green eyes as she looked up and noticed that the sun was at its highest point in the sky. She had slept through the whole night and most of the next day. She decided that she better hurry back to Starheim before anybody grew worried and went out looking for her. But this would be an experience in her life she she would surely never forget.
