"Ok I will just stay with you" She said meekly and lowered her head to finally just rest on the ground. Dust collected into her nose and she sneezed. This time she turned her head towards her legs so that she was curled up in a ball. She wished Faith a good night before sleeping lightly. She was still alert just in case any animals such as wolves or coyote's came.
"night."she told Aelia.she had the same dream again. deer dying others freaking out, and others just frozen where they were and died there to. aking up scared she went back to the cave opening wondering what this all means
The young stag watched as she then sauntered over, casting him a faltering frosty glance. The snow which previously cascaded along her sides had already dispersed due to the whip of her shoulders all the way down to her haunches and he then did the same after her own little remark. ‘Loosening up already hm..’ His thoughts peaked at his mind and he then made his way in after her, dipping his chin to avoid the thick rocks from meeting his partially fragile antlers. Ezra faced the entrance, letting his dim hazel gaze scan over the snow covered ground and the sky which had dull gray clouds congregating across it, angrily shouting with its whistling winds and its dropping hail. “Its getting pretty rough out there.” He spoke without a fleeting mumble and then turned to face the doe with a cunning expression,flicking his stare briefly across her resting frame with ease. “I wonder where you would have been without my assistance.” The stag stifled his drawl,strolling towards one of the stone walls and then seating himself comfortably. It had been a good while since his behind had met any floor for he had always been standing on every hoof in precaution of any lurking threats, and if he were to actually rest it would always be on his side. Ezra settled his stare once more onto the dame and analyzed her with veiled intent, her alluring scent capturing his attention no matter how much the breeze had tried to avert.
She was slim, her coat a pretty brunette unlike the doe he had laid eyes on before, her dappled pelt forever engraved in his mind for it was nothing he had ever seen before. Her ears were lengthy and perked, her slender legs tucked beneath her frame in the most pleasant position. The cool stone brushed against his thick fur, as if urging him to speak, and he did, a soft chuff escaping his snout and the aftermath a brief plume of cold air. “Ezra.” The stag paused, eyeing her for a mere two seconds before then continuing. “That is what you may call me.”
(This response is sad compared to yours. I'll do better next time. xD)
Fox stared up at the blurred sky dotted with the falling white snowflakes as she scurried up the mountain like... well, a fox. She didn't look behind her- for all she new, her sister wasn't even following her anymore. Fox knew there was an abandoned cave at the higher end of the mountain. The blizzard got thicker with every hoofstep, making it hard for Fox to stay standing. Her hind legs shivered and shook as she heaved herself over a crumbling boulder and finally arrived at the cavern.
It was something of a small cave, a mere little room hollowed out of the hill with large dust coated rocks leaned up against the mountainside to form a doorway. Little icicles lined the edge, which fox thought may have been fun to play with if there wasn't a storm going on. She shuffled inside and collapsed as soon as she no longer felt the snow peppering her back.

It's getting pretty rough out there. I wonder where you would have been without my assistance.
Keya's ears flicked at the stag's voice. His first remark wasn't what bothered her. Anyone could have pointed that out. But his coy expression that followed had warned her against what he may say next. Confirming her suspicions, the stag had boasted about how she needed him. Typical. All stags were the same, weren't they?
Never had Keya met a buck who didn't annoy her in some way. All of them had some flaw that she couldn't bear. It was common to find some who were egotistic with that aggravating masculine air. There were a couple who were self centered and too boastful. And there were the occasional who were just completely helpless. To her, it seemed like this buck fell in the first couple categories.
Keya scowled at his words, rolling her charcoal eyes as he settled down into a comfortable position. Keya hadn't had time to really look at the stag before, since they had been out in the storm and all. But now, under shelter, she had a chance. Besides, she had realized that he might have been looking her over as well. Keya didn't mind it, to be honest. He could look, but he couldn't touch. And the doe was amused to know that she may have some effect on him, however small it may be. Keya was well aware of her neatly kept appearance, clad in a russet coat and a lithe frame.
Her own gaze inspected the stag for a quick moment, realizing that he was quite stocky with what seemed like a thick and soft pelt. When he spoke again, her gaze met his evenly. She could finally pin a name on this stranger. Ezra.
Nonchalantly, Keya responded "Keya. My name is Keya." She paused for a moment. As pleasant as the moment was, she wanted to remind the stag that this was most definitely temporary. "But why would you have to know that? If we are going our separate ways after this storm."
Waking up from a rough night she realized that it was mourning. noticing that no one was up yet she went to see if they still had food. they didn't so she left to find more food for everyone. "i can tell Beau when i get back and hopfully everyone including Beau will be up. that's when i will tell him that Aelia came ealier in the night." she told herself
Running towards shelter she went trying to aviod the storm the best she could come. "Shelter!" she yelled as she found a cave not to far away. finally she reached it. when she got inside she finally realized how hungrey she was. looking outside to see if she coud get food somewhere. she was right there was grass right outside the cave entrance so she started to head in that direction. bending over she ate. "thats better." she said. "I wonder if there are any more deer."

Faith eastern herd herd doe mentions:beau eastern herd
when she came back she had food but not that much. everyone was up so she decided to go tell Buea that Aelia was here."Where is he?!"she asked herself. why did she pick such a large cave for them to take shelter in? finally finding Beau she trotted to him. "Beau Aeliea is here. she came last night. she doesn't care if others call her Sunny though." she told him
Blossem lone doe mentions none
When she thought the storm had slowed down she got out and started to climb the mountain. she had heard of two herds that were formed here recently and she hoped that she might be lucky enough to make friends with them both. she was lonly out here all by herself and sometimes longed for a friendto be with her in her travels but new that she couldn't quite do that. leaping from rock to rock she was half way up."Careful and don't look down." she told herself hoping she wouldn't scare herself with how high up she was.

Looking up at the sky she thought it looked like it was almost over."I need to gone a herd before the time of year when males start fghting for positons and does." she told herself."I just hope i will be excepted into a herd. maybe a herd that a lone stag made?" she said giving herself hope and eneragement. she headed outside to look for some water. when she went down the mountain she cought the scent of a herd near by and thought that she could head over there and see what it was like living in a herd.
Venom was treading through the forest, he felt lonely and tired. He didn't like this..not one bit. He wasn't an independent stag, he needed to be with others. He didn't even know why. The little piebald stag should his small growing rack and snorted. He walked upon a nice stream, he lowered his thick neck and started to drink from the cool, refreshing water.
Ah..so pure. The young stag looked up to the sky, "Oh Riot..I should have never left..." he sighed, and began drinking once more. He kept thinking of his older brother, remembering when he fled his older brother because he was scared. I should have stayed-I shouldn't have been such a coward! He yelled at himself on the inside, he cursed and swore at himself.
The beautiful piebald stag stood up, and walked along the stream, seeing a path of large rocks leading across the cold stream. His hard, black hooves leaped onto the rocks. One by one, his hooves slipped a few times on the slippery tops, but he managed to get across.
"Huh, truly thought I would fall and crack my antlers, such lu-" guess he spoke to soon. Venom tripped over a light clump of snow and fell right onto his head but thankfully his antlers held and didn't break. "Damn."
Riot | 5 years 6 months | Stag | Bachelor Stag | Mentions: Open
Riot was walking through the woods, he had been following the tracks of fellow Red Deer for a few hours now. He needed protection, for at least a few days. Something felt off, someone was out there. Watching him, he didn't like the feeling one bit.
The red stag snorted and picked up the pace to a brisk trot. He watched around carefully with his eyes but kept his head forward watching the tracks. Riot heard movement behind him but kept his cool. His pace quickened, and so did the movement behind him.
His heart started to race. Coyotes. Riot felt a bite on his hind leg, and he kicked his hoof out, kicking a coyoted right n the face. "Fuckers," he whispered as he bounded into a run, away from the tracks. He didn't need nor want any deer to get hurt, and because it was the right thing to do.
The coyotes behind him snapped, growled, and howled. Only a pack of 5..I can outrun them-hopefully. Riot pushed himself, his hooves flinging up snow behind. him into their faces. He bucked and kicked his hind hooves out, hoping to kick a coyote but failed somewhat. When he kicked, a coyote dodged but ran right into a tree going unconscious. "Win..win?" He chuckled to himself, he looked straight ahead. Only 4 left...
Dawn | 3 years | Doe | Eastern Herd Doe | Mentions: Beau, herd (ind.)
Dawn walked up to Beau, standing close to him. She felt safer around him, because he was well, the Lead Stag. The one who would protect his herd with his life, and her. Because she was apart of his herd. But there was something else...yes, she liked Beau more than a friend. That is why she was jealous of Faith but didn't hate her for it. No, she wasn't like that. She just wished that she was by Beau's side. But it was just a fantasy, not real life, sadly.
"Beau?" She looked up to him, then back to the trees. "I know it's not my place to say, but I suggest we start moving only because its spring. And the bears and coyotes are getting hungry and thirsty and by staying by this water source we are in slight risk," she spoke softly. She looked up to him again, then back to the forest.
"Just a suggestion though.." she added before she started grazing on the dead grass. She found a stick and started to eat the chew and eat off the bark. It wasn't tasty, but it was something and the food was somewhat scarce.
