Sagefire sat at the entrance of the den, her ears pinned back and feeling unsure. Faolan walks up to her nudging her shoulder "Are you okay dear? You seem a little distant" he asks softly. Sagefire sighs "I'm just nervous about being an alpha, I don't know much about being one and what if I do a terrible job or if something goes wrong?" she says rather worriedly. Faolan smiles at her, shaking his head "Don't worry so much, I'm just as nervous as you but we have a pack that depends on us and we must do what we can to make sure it survives" he says. Sagefire sighs, nodding in agreement "Yes, you are right. I will do my best to stay positive" she says.
Sagefire never thought she'd be an alpha, it was definitely something new for her and a whole pack was depending on her. Yes, she was nervous and she was worried how things may turn out but she was glad that she had Faolan by her side.
As the weeks rolled on by things were starting to get a little more difficult, the dry season had taken over which drove some of the prey away. The smaller lakes and rivers were also drying up which meant no fish and the hunters were returning home with less and less food until one day there was nothing.
Sagefire stood watching the pack, they were weak and getting weaker "Faolan, we need to do something. We will lose the pack if we don't!" she says firmly, looking to him. Faolan sighs "I'm not sure what we can do, everyone is to weak" he says. "I have an idea, it may be risky but I think it's the only option we have" Sagefire says. Faolan looks to her, tilting his head slightly "What is it?" he asks. "We will have to move the pack, we need to find new land, hopefully following the deer herds. We can't stay here anymore" Sagefire says. Faolan sighs "Yes, I guess you are right. Okay, let's get moving. The longer we wait the more likely we won't be able to move" he says. Sagefire nods, looking towards the pack "Alright everyone! Listen up, we need to move to new land so please follow me and Faolan!" she announces loudly. The pack did look unsure, and worried but they managed to stand getting themselves ready for the journey ahead.
Sagefire took the lead, Faolan following along side her and he was rather surprised at Sagefire. Here was a female who was first afraid of alpha duties, unsure of how she would cope but now she was leading her pack to a better life. Faolan was indeed impress, even proud of her and he knew she would grow more confidence as the years go on. Faolan had his own worries of course but he knew alpha duties wouldn't be easy and he handled the stress better then what Sagefire did. He was just glad that he had her in his life.
The pack continued forward, it had seemed a few hours had past since it was daytime when they left and it was now nighttime. Sagefire comes up a hill, her ears perk forward seeing the deer herd grazing in a field "We found them! And can you smell that? It's the smell of rain. Which means the rains are returning soon" she says excitedly. Faolan smiled "Well done my dear, I believe you just saved our pack. Let us find a new territory and settle" he says nuzzling her shoulder proudly. The pack continued on until they found a nice new large territory, it had a pretty large den and was close to a river and not to far away was hunting grounds. It was perfect. Sagefire sits with Faolan a smile on her face, a moment of pride comes over her and she was glad she was brave enough to make the decision to move them. At least now she knew she'd be a good alpha, along with her mate Faolan.
(I'm aware I put this story in my blogs, and in my packs main page lol but it was originally supposed to be Sagefires story)
Sagefire was a fairly shy pup when she was born as she lost her mother at a young age, but when she turned 2 she pulled herself up to being the beta and then soon she was the alpha. She now takes care of her pack and is the main hunter.
Prefers Taking care of the pack, and being with her mate Faolan
Sagefire was born with the talent of wisdom, so she is naturally wise, so that is her special skill.
