It had been months and months of travelling with her brother however more recently the two of them had gotten split up and thus Choetta was travelling alone. She didn't mind too much, coming down from the mountains she was heading towards a train of tree's and plainland. Or so she hoped. It took a while for her to travel, though since the Leopard had been travelling alone she had seemed to pick up speed and manage to cross more terrain than before. Silly Tambako slowing her down, it was typical. Though she smirked at the thought of her brother. 'I do hope you are okay brother, wherever you might be. May one day we see one another again.' Her eyes glanced up at the sky in thought before she pushed back on deeper and deeper into this new-found land. It was all rather interesting and exciting for her.
Each large foot pressed down gently upon the mountain, easily weaving her way around the domain. After growing up near the mountains it was no surprise that Choetta took this terrain with ease, though soon enough she was coming down of the mountain and onto somewhat level terrain. Snorting she slowly brought her head down to sniff at the ground. The forest was now surrounding her, and a massive grin crept across her face, charging towards the closest tree she dug her claws into the bark and almost purred in satisfaction. Flickering her tail, the feline looked directly up her head cocked from one side to the other before a low growl erupted from her vocals. Using all her strength and her claws she had managed to scamper her way up into the branch, moving along the tree she sat upon the edge of one of the sideways branches in the tree. Soft eyes glanced down at the terrain beneath her, though just then something caught her eye. Just in the distance not far away; only a few feet were what seemed to be a water source. A lake or pond, something like that. Nostrils flared as she stared at the water, pondering to go down there to take a drink and freshen up, or remain upon this rather comfortable branch.
Grunting she plopped her head down, it seemed rest and this branch had won over her decision. Her left foreleg, the one with the scar dropped down off the branch along with her tail that quite happily dropped down from where she was at. She had no worries of anyone really seeing her as if, so she'd just scamper from one tree to the other, and anyways it not like she smelt any scent markers around here and thus Choetta settled rather comfortably. -
A large gray striped tiger who is not accompanied by either Tsaire, a large blue and white hued canine, which Mew has had the pleasure of traveling with recently nor Makyna, a tawny small lioness with a blue flower tucked behind her ear and also has had the pleasure of traveling with.
Mew has managed to separate from the two parties as he catches scent of something new. His instincts scream at the male to follow the scent, so he does. He follows the scent as his instincts kept screaming at him. He doesn’t understand why until later.
Large pads press into the ground as he follows his instincts. An unknown scent assaults his nose and his eyes shift slightly. Another feline? Good. He likes meeting new friends. Eyes sharpening he becomes very hyper alert of everything. Touch, sound, taste, feel, and even scent. The smallest motions would even catch the tiger’s attention as he prowls the area looking for the feline who is within.
Blue eyes focused on his surroundings, Mew comes across a small pond-like thing. Looking at it he stops for a quick drink. He leans down as he laps the cool liquid allowing small droplets to drip drop down his muzzle. He basically purrs as he refreshes himself.
In the distance sits a leopard in a tree. Mew finishes his small drink before he catches the scent but STRONGER. His head whips really fast as he looks up to where the scent is thickest. There! In the trees, he catches sight of something golden.
Fuck it was like deja vu again with how he met Tsaire. Lounging in the branches. It seemed the feline was pretty relaxed in the tree. So the big male took a few strides as he approached the tree. Eyes locked on the feline even as he took those strides, he purred. As he got closer his purrs even got louder in sound.
“Hello, golden feline.” He simply said. It wasn’t rude, but it wasn't nice. It was business like?? How he’d greet outsiders. He didn’t know whether the leopard would flee from him or not, so he said that one sentence as he feeled out for the leopard.
Then again Mew is just this giant ass gray striped tiger who is abnormally larger than a regular tiger, but once you get to know him he’s a giant teddy bear. He looks intimidating at first, but that is just how he was born. Inherited trait from his father, Arthit, who liked to have this stone cold bitch-glare face.
Resting rather happily within the branch she didn't move nor speak. The only thing that showed she was alive to anyone or anything else was the fact that her tail twitched softly off the branch. Nose twitching, she softly closed her eyes. It was good to finally rest and be at peace, as much as she loved her brother it was very difficult to sleep or rest around him when he didn't know the meaning of shutting up. Smirking at the thought Choetta softly shook her head and closed her eyes once more. Allowing the darkness to happily flood over her. Though her short snooze was soon interrupted as a scent of another feline came her way. Eyes shot open along with her head shooting up and staring out of the branch. Her tail now twitched more as she became anxious and annoyed that even here, she got disturbed.
Snorting the bi-coloured eyes looked out towards the pond where a figure could be made out, feline, male perhaps, grey... Hmm tiger? She wasn't entirely sure, she had never seen a grey tiger nor one that appeared that size. Huffing the Leopard remained very still and watched as he came closer, she merely smirked and glanced down at the tiger. For now, she said no words, only her ears flicked forwards and her body moved from drooping on the branch to now standing upon the branch. Slowly gritting her teeth, she refrained from trying to bite her tongue. Annoying tick. 'What does he want? Can I trust him? Perhaps not. Be careful.' She told herself, oh how now she wished her brother was here to help settle her anxious tick. However, she'd have to do this alone and she knew that she was fully capable of doing so. Puffing her chest out she then went to speak.
"Hello, silver feline." She replied with her angelic, seductive voice. "I must say I have seen a tiger in my time before, but not a grey one." Adding on with a smirk, her tail now rose above her body, curling over slightly and flickering. Choetta then decided to move closer to the trunk of the branch so she was more visible and not hidden by the leaves. Only when she felt comfortable would the feline then move down and join the male upon the ground. The trees were her safety net.-
The golden dappled female with spots about her furs most commonly found on leopards slowly made herself more visible to the male. She had peeked out from the trees which hid her mostly besides the flicking of her tail. Ah, definitely deja vu as Tsaire had been hidden as well in the trees when they first met. However, he hadn’t discovered the wolf right away.
From the ground he watches her movements closely. He can see that the female is apprehensive and a bit annoyed that he must’ve disturbed her. Mew then apologizes to the female, “Sorry there, didn’t mean to disturb you. Just smelled another feline and came to meet your acquaintances.” He told her straight to the bush.
One of the things about Mew is that he was always straight to the point and didn’t bother with beating around the bush. Nope! That was not his style. He could say even the crudest things with a straight face and how he did it is a mystery. Even his father would blush at some of the things he’s heard.
The leopard seemed to be thinking something, but he didn’t know what. He however noticed that she seemed to have a tick. Arching a brow at her mouth, he decided to leave it alone as he didn’t want or need to be rude.
Then the female spoke. Her voice was angelic and even seductive. He’d never heard a voice like that. And then that smirk followed by her last words caused him to smirk. Oh she was a character for sure. Tongue licking his nose he watches her with blue electric eyes. “My my, you are something rare. I like you. I’m Mew, nice to meet you goldie.” He grinned purring loudly as he introduced himself.
For some reason, Mew liked to purr a lot. Granted he was a tiger, but he was always purring unless he was stressed or angry. No even then he would be purring, but also it would be vibrant and loud. Almost rumbling. He was just known for his purring.
The leopard kept to the trees but Mew didn’t mind. It seemed she was more comfortable being in the trees as if it were her safety net from him or any others. He could climb the trees, but he was a pretty large ass tiger and would’ve broke the branches if he tried. Not all branches could hold the tiger’s weight.
Ears flickered as she listened to his words, well it was nice he picked up on that and apologised. Her brother would usually just laugh and tease her more, but then again it was her brother, and this was a stranger. Snorting softly, she stared down at the tiger still a bit unsure about him. He seemed friendly for now, perhaps she could in fact come down to ground level to meet him properly. She'd wait a little longer until she did that, yeah that seemed like the best thing to do. Flickering her tail, she then spoke once again. "It is quite alright, I am rather use to disturbances as of late. Why would you come to meet another feline to make their acquaintance? What if I turned out aggressive." Smirking somewhat deviously. Choetta was rather liking this interaction so far and pulling a few strings. What was so wrong with that?
Though instantly she spotted his smirk that followed hers. 'Hmm interesting.' She remained silent for quite some time, taking in his words she laughed softly to herself, and heard his purrs only made her ears flick. Though for now Choetta didn't reply, she just let her smile turn into a smirk once more, watching and waiting to make him wait for the response. No harm in that. And then in one swift movement the Leopard leapt down before him with a grunt. Glancing over the male he was bigger for sure, but that made no difference to her. Gritting her teeth once more, she attempted to shove that tick back whilst she played and teased with him somewhat more.
"Something rare? You like me? Do explain how I am rare and why you like me, I have only said a few sentences after all." Chuckling she circled around the male, ensuring her tail brushed across his flank before she sat directly in front of him. Choetta sat with pride and elegance, she didn't slouch nor let her guard down. "Mew, short yet nice name. Hmm..." Cocking her head to the side she smiled and dipped her head softly with a long blink of her eyes. "Nice to meet you too, my name is Choetta."-
This leopard was something else he discovered. From hanging in the trees and teasing him, she finally descends the tree as she joins him on the ground. She’s interesting with that smirk still etched in her facial features. And the way she teases him is something too. He hasn’t felt this since he’d gotten kicked out by his father. He misses the tease Chopper.
Even though the smaller leopard female came down, he stuck to his spot. She circled him basically flicking him with her tail. It drove him crazy because his cub side wanted to take ahold of the tail that tantalized him. He watched the tail and held back from grabbing it. No, the two weren’t close enough to do such things.
He stood tall as he watches the smaller feline. Eyes sharp and watch the way she moves. She is no threat to him, but neither he is to her. Unless provoked. But Mew was just a giant teddy bear. Reaching the age of two soon and to come into his adulthood.
The female took a seat in front of him. She held herself quite royal like and it reminded him of Yihwa. He shuddered the thought of that crazy woman. This leopard shouldn’t be compared to her. Yihwa was just something.. Unwanted.
She told him to explain how she was rare based on the small interaction. He chuckled. “Although we’ve not known each other long, you have quite the personality that reminds me of two people. One that shouldn’t count because she’s.. Whatever besides the point. You remind me of my older adopted sister, Chopper.” He smiled fondly as he spoke of Chopper. Even though he interrupted himself for a brief moment, he continued.
He wished Chopper would find him soon and be around. She was this really small tiger but with a big attitude. She was feisty in spirit and loved to tease him. Quite liked too by the Suppasit family even though she wasn’t blood related to any of them.
"What a beautiful name, goldie. Choetta." He tested her name out. "Yours is short but simple too." He purred as he looked at her. Deciding she was good enough or rather he didn't wish to leave yet the male plopped on his ass as he sits and eyes the female. "Where from?" He asks softly.
Eyes slowly watched all his reactions, once she was on the ground he didn't move nor grab her tail. She smirked and chuckled to herself deviously again. Once more. She gave out a slight hiss, not in aggression only messing with the larger tiger once again. Flickering her tail, she remained sat and watched as he spoke, she could see that this feline he was talking about meant a lot to him. Chopper, it seemed the two would be quite close. Just like herself and Tambako.
"I see, well then I'm glad to remind you of at least one of them. Not the other, whatever one." Chuckling she repeated his words softly; her angelic voice became more seductive as she teased him. Nose twitching slightly, she grinded her teeth once again, she was doing it less and less around him, but it was still there. As after all she hardly knew this male, and though she was very good at acting fine, inside her head she wasn't. It was true of the fact that the leopard is very good at deception, manipulation and lies. That is when she chooses to lie, she much prefers the blunt truth.
"Why thank you, I suppose Goldie is going to be stuck with me now eh?" Chuckling once again the leopard shot Mew a smile. Tail coiled around her, and the tip gently twitched up and down. Ears flicked around as she listened to her surroundings, unsure if anything or anyone else would creep up on them both. "My family lives within the Glacial Plains, myself and my brother; Tambako left there a few months ago. Been on the travel since. What about yourself?" Deciding to entertain this male and the conversation.-
For such a small creature Choetta gave off a strong vibe. He could still see the twitch in her mouth but it died down less and less. Still the male made no hint at mentioning about it. It wasn’t his business, yet. Maybe once Mew and Choetta became friends he’d entertain the thought. Just not quite yet.
The conversation between the two sailed smooth. She used his words against him which caused him to chuckle. He indeed liked this feline. She’d be worth having as companionship. His main goal was to settle down and establish relations with canines and felines all alike. Once settled potentially see about a guild and then bringing the family into it.
For years his family, Suppasit, had lived in isolation amongst one of the jungles of Taiga. They preferred the small unit of their blood, but however Chopper managed to change their ways. When Chopper first came, she showed them a difference of the world.
Eventually Aim grew to love Chopper but it was Arthit who adopted her. Chopper changed many things within the family. Meanwhile Aim was the father of the line he was also the most dominant and respected. Few times he had to put the 5th generation; Arthit in his place.
“It shall. Goldie has a nice ring to it, doesn’t it?” He teased her. He could see goldie sticking since she was golden or in the spectrum of yellow.. Besides she was also so kind. That was enough reason for him. She seemed to be cautious of her surroundings as her ears twitched and her tail coiled.
He just idled there and waited for her to reassure herself. He had time and no plans currently. Besides with his size no one would really dare fight with the tiger. He was about double times the original size of the average tiger. No one knew why either. But still it was better to be cautious than not especially in cases like this where you don’t know who could attack first.
“Glacial plains. Ah, I see. You and your brother? So where is he.. I only see you.” He asked as he subtly looked around wondering if there was another leopard dancing in the distance watching his sister. But Mew hadn’t caught any scent of more than one feline.
“Me? There’s not much.. I was born in a forestry area and then I was kicked out at 12 months by my father and I’ve been on my own since then. I’m trying to establish a new home and perhaps build a guild and then bring the fam. I don’t know yet. I miss my mother, Pree, and even Chopper. Those were my favorites of the immediate family.” He sighed briefly as sadness clouded his eyes. It’d been a while since he’d heard news of his family, but he hoped nothing bad came from it.
Eventually the tiger would reunite with his family just like Tsaire would with his family. It was bound to happen.
Choetta still wasn't sure of this one, though he seemed nice and not a threat she could tell he was also after something else from this conversation. She had a feeling, her tail twitched slightly. Was she even ready to actually have a friend? Or was she just more suited to the rouge life? She wasn't too sure as of yet, all she knew was that she wasn't ready to trust in him or anyone besides her sibling. Nose twitching as she glanced around she then pulled her attention back onto the male upon hearing his teasing tone. "Hmmm... I don't know, all it does is suit my coat colour." She smirked and chuckled she didn't mind having nicknames, but Mew best not expect her to reply to it all the time; as she won't.
Watching his idle nature made her ponder why he wasn't so alert to his surroundings, perhaps it was since she was a cub that had just made her this way, to always be cautious and keep yourself alert therefore you are ready for anything. That’s what her father had drilled into her anyways. 'Bastard, can't even get away from him in my head. Miles away.' Grunting she shoved the thought of her father to the back of her mind, as far back. "My brother... We split up a few weeks ago, I cannot quite remember how we split up, but we have... I hope that we re-join again soon I do miss him dearly. Travelling alone isn't the same as travelling with another." A slight huff came from Choetta, her tail flicked. She worried for her brother, and only hoped he would be alright. Well she knew he could handle his own, but also knew he'd likely to get himself in trouble the leopard could feel herself smiling at the thought.
"Forestry area... I see." She smirked with a soft chuckle. "Kicked out? So young? How... well different to my family life." Admitting softly towards the silver tiger. "A guild? I see... And I bet those you were closest to you will always miss them. But you never know you may reunite one day." Nodding towards the male. And then she did in fact get what he wanted, a guild, interesting.
Mew hadn’t expected the female to really agree to her nickname, but it looks like she was somewhat willing. He knew he wouldn’t call her by that name often maybe just in greeting every once in a while the two saw each other.
The leopard was still weary of the male, but he didn’t mind. He just sat down casually and ignored all the signs of her discomfort. He made it simple enough to try and leave subtle hints he wouldn’t attack. Hell, he was willing to let his guard down with the female in front of him. She still seemed to have not made her mind up about him.
She talked about her brother and how the two split up. He knew the brother couldn’t be far behind but he could tell the two were pretty close. It seemed as if this brother of hers was the closest person she had and kept her calm. From what he heard, it seems the two are totally different. She’s more quiet and reserved, but this brother seemed to be more loud and obnoxious.
Now she somewhat knew of his story. He didn’t feel any bitter resentment towards his story. He missed his sibling and mother of course, but he learned to get on without them. Even though a pain in his heart would sometimes come when he thought of them a lot. Mew’s greatest weakness was his family.
At least her next words were a bit soothing. She understood what he was feeling as she was separated from her brother. Mew nodded at the female. “We will reunite one day soon. After a guild is established I will seek them out personally and find them.” He purred as he thought about the future.
Thinking about guilds got him wondering about the female. He paused as he came out of his thoughts and cleared his throat. “Say Choetta, what about you? What’s your thoughts on guilds? Especially with canines? Tsaire and I have a common goal where we want to join those two units together.” He spoke. She wouldn’t know the Warfang heir or really the 5.1 litter of Naulium and Romulus. Technically even Mew doesn’t.. But his roleplayer does.
She watched him softly, watching his hints that he wouldn't attack. Choetta knew this, she could tell easily but due to no fault of her own, her own instinct, how she was raised she couldn't help but feel settled until she was with someone she trusted. And the only ones she trusted at the moment was her family; excluding her father. And thus, the leopardess would always be on edge, active until she knew, until she could learn to trust this male. Chewing her gums softly, her tick was of course still there, just slowly becoming less frequent.
Seeing his nod, her ears pricked forwards and back onto him rather attentively. She still didn't really know much about guilds, or what they were, seeing as her family called it something else. But she was soon clicking onto what it was once he started to describe somewhat, what a guild was. She managed to figure it all out really. "Why not seek them out before you start this guild?" Pondering why he was taking his time, or what was stopping Mew from seeing his family now. Did he really have to be a part of a guild before seeing his family. She shrugged, other felines had such weird aspects compared to her own. Just goes to show how differently they all could be raised.
"Now I am figuring a guild is like what wolves would call a pack correct? Or what we call prides etc." Adding with a soft smile, her tail flicked behind her. "I honestly do not have much thoughts on them. I'm quite happy by myself, but that doesn't mean I do not want to be a part of a guild. I will just have to wait and see, how I feel about the guild, the members within and if I can trust those in power." Her paws gently kneaded at the ground beneath, maybe eventually she would join a guild but for now she was optimistic about them and wouldn't shut herself away. After all she knew deep down, that she couldn't be a rogue forever. "Canines do not bother me. I could live besides them as long as like any animal really respects one another and causes no trouble." It was interesting, the two species coming together. Not many would ideally go along with that idea, and it did intrigue the leopardess. Would such a thing even work? "How do you plan on making that work exactly?"-
He could sense the apprehensive in the female still, so he gave up on trying. He just ignored that small aspect since there was nothing he could do to make her trust him. At least she seemed to allow his company and that was alright for the male since he didn’t need anything more. He just needed her to allow him to be right there.
Questions came from the leopard. Why didn’t he bring his family before the guild? It was a good question and he wasn’t sure how to answer her. “I’m not quite sure how to tell you, but I think in my opinion it has to do with competence. I wanna establish my place first and if they choose to follow their family rules won’t be implemented.. so --” He trailed off confused slightly on how to word this.
His family was of patriarchy-style. The creator had the highest respect and then the generations after.. But sometimes that wasn’t always the case.
It was then she figured out that a guild was the same thing as a pride or even a pack. He simply nodded. “It’s easier to say guild since it’s more neutral..” he explained softly as he looked at her. His blue eyes glinted slightly with a certain fondness in them.
Family was everything to him.. But he needed to expand the family too. Making bonds with other animals would help with this or so he thinks.
It was good that she didn’t mind it, but right now wasn’t exactly looking. “I see.” He purred absent mindedly as he thought about what she said. How would he make this work? Honestly, he was just going with the flow of things right now and did what felt right to him.
In time he would pathe his own path and see what would happen, but for now he couldn’t foretell the future. “I guess in time we will see, I don’t really know. I am just following my heart.” He tells her. That’s all he could really say anyway.
