Rayen looked up from his head on the floor of the cave, seeing Seldan there beside him and come to comfort him. He lifted his head up and licked him back as his tail wagged a little. He always enjoyed the company of Seldan, for he always knew how to cheer him up.
” It’s more difficult for omegas get the left overs. I fear i will starve before i see spring.”
The old wolf gave the other a warm smile as his own tail began to wag.
"Don’t you worry little one, you’ve made it this far, through three winters already, I’m sure you’ll make it through this one too."
He scooted a little closer to the smaller wolf, their pelts now pressed together, allowing them to better share their warmth with each other. Seldan had always liked the little one, he remembered when Rayen was just a pup and off bouncing around with all the others and Ensar would always snap at them not to go too far, or not to fall in the river. He smiled fondly at the thought.
On a cold night after a small meal was devoured by the pack, Rayen slipped his way to the carcass of the little deer calf sniffing for any scraps of meat left for him to at least have something in his belly. As He sniffs around only three little bites were left for him to eat, at least something right? He quickly eats the pieces and starts to sniff around the cave for anything else to eat. With a sigh he laid down near the bones imitating that he would rather be the dead deer right now.
” I dislike the winters….”
The pack was all curled up in various places, the Alphas were curled up together in the back, with almost all of the other’s curled up together near the middle. Most were chatting and helping each other clean the blood from their muzzles, others were already falling asleep. Seldan saw the poor Omega and stood, walking over to the smaller wolf, he lay down next to him, his light brown pelt brushing against Rayen’s light grey one. He smiled and licked the Omega’s muzzle.
"We all do… Food is always scarce this time of year, but we’ll pull through. We always do."
