Field Fox chuckled, gleefully stomping on whatever pods her hooves could find. While a quaint game, it was at least something to do.

It's

raining.

She's huddled tight against her tribemates, shivering. Still small and having never lived through a winter before, she's gone from relatively fat and happy to absolutely drenched and miserable in moments. The night sky whose stars she once followed and traced designs on within her mind is covered up in grey clouds, sheets of dark rain pouring down like the night itself is falling to earth. Without the light of the moon shining on the open desert, the world is profoundly dark- and though she does not see her mother, she hears her, as she begins a lullaby.

"Only when the stars are gone,
do you recall their shine.
Far apart you may live on,
but the memory's forever mine."


Mother's voice alone is nearly swept up in the beat of the rain. But, gradually, the voices of the other acha began to rise up, each singing along in their own words. Though initially she would have called this simply a cacophony, she would later be told it was called a "round." It was hard to follow any one string of words, but she did pick out an interesting few. Many sung about the winter rains, a lot about family... But also a lot about not being able to see your family any more. Especially in reference to the swamp.

She'd heard about the swamp before, but not much. That it's so far away they may never return.

Enraptured, she forgets the cold, listening on in snippets and bits as she seems to drift in and out of waking.

"What was the desert like?"

As her eyes open, she finds herself not pressed up against dozens of other acha- instead, only one sits by her side. Sky Full of Tears looks up at her expectantly, his eyes full of admiration. She's not sure if she deserves it.

But even if she doesn't, she'd deserve it even less if she let him down. And so, she takes a deep breath in.

"Inescapably large," she begins. "Here, your line of sight is probably blocked by trees most of the time, right? There isn't much to block your vision in the desert. It seems as though you can see all the way to the edges of the world- though, of course, that isn't true. There is more in the world than any one kin could even hope to see with their own eyes."

You're one to talk, she thought.

But Sky just kept on smiling.

"It's a lot like the swamp in some ways, and not at all like it in others. It has a rainy season right about now, too- but never rainy enough anything ends up underwater, like it does here." As she explained, his ears perked up a little, tail thumping against the ground. Of course, his dream had been of one of the more fleeting, pleasant summer storms, but the information still intrigued him. "And so, when it got cold during the nights, we'd all gather up close to each other like this-" she scooted a bit closer to him, enough to give him a motherly(?) bonk on the head with her own head, which made him laugh.

"And we'd sing, to keep the mood up."

"...What sort of songs?"

"Hm... Whatever someone started singing, really. Some folks made up their own words to the melody, I think. Let me try to remember..."

She wasn't sure if it was a memory, or if she was making it up, but still, she lifted her voice, to the tune she recalled from long ago.

"Through the harshest heat,
and over mountains of stone,
still I know your heart must beat,
so that means I'm not alone-"


As she felt her son's neck droop as he fell asleep, she thought back again-

Back to reality, as her eyes opened once more- finding that where her son had been beside her, now sat a great cat- its glowing eyes seeming to stare directly into her heart.

Playfully, it leapt to its feet, pausing for only a moment to look back at her. Then, the moment she could process what was going on, it dashed away into the grey winter- faster than any kin could hope to run.

So too did she look back over her shoulder, at Fading Beauty and Sky Full of Tears as they slept- curled up together exactly like her own family used to. And, wistfully, she smiled-

Before picking up her hooves and giving chase, even if she couldn't see what it was she was after.

"No matter how far away, my dear,
you're always inside my heart.
Even if you aren't right here,
we won't truly be apart."

"Your mom's a dog-faced lizard eater!"

And she had been in a good mood thanks to purchasing this flower, too. (The ones who had given it to her had assured her it looked lovely, and she was inclined to believe them. Though, in hindsight, maybe they had said so just in order to get her pebbles...? Argh, no! She didn't want to think about that-)

Uncertain pulled back her ears and dipped her head at the jeering of the crowd of nasties, trying to make herself less visible. This clearly didn't work, considering the half-breed stuck out like an orange in a pile of apples thanks to... well, everything about her. Her pale fur, her scrawny limbs, no eyes... You know, the whole nine yards.

While she didn't want to let it get to her...

Oh no, how would she ever know if her mother was a dog-faced lizard eater? She'd never seen her mom before to tell! Of course, she had never really seen a dog before either. She was blind. But logic did not follow in the brain of the panicked. And so, with a sigh, she continued on her way.

She nearly jumped out of her pelt when she was about twenty paces past the "booth" she had been insulted at and something barked at her.

Stumbling and putting herself as on guard as she possibly could, she turned to face the animal. Thankfully, instead of being attacked by some order of the ones running the booth, she simply felt the dog give her a tentative sniff- and then a lick on her muzzle. That made her... A little less nervous, but not much.

She was making friends with the dogs now... Maybe her mother really was a dog...? Oh no.

This day was spiraling down from bad to worse.
