Dawn is breaking across the sky and a lone patchwork pup strikes out toward the beach. Calico Jack always seems to be the first of his family to get up and out into the world and he can only blame Nico for this. The coyote pup is the main reason he arises so early since Nico comes to visit this early. But today is different, Nico will not be visiting… but Cal still raises with the sun. It doesn’t seem that many wolves like to get up this early and so Calico Jack appears to have the beach to himself.

Breaking into a trot, Cal moves further down the beach while letting out a soft whistle for Jolly Roger to join him. Right now, his mother does not know he has a macaw and it is kind of fun to keep the bird a secret. Not that it will last long since the pup plays with the blue and yellow bird every chance he gets. Jolly Roger appears, swooping low and letting out a caw of greeting. Jack gives a soft bark back before pulling into an easy run, angling the pair toward the waterline. Since there never seems to be anyone up this early, Jack is confident that he and Jolly Roger can break some rules without anyone noticing… or so he hopes.

It was early, incredibly early, and yet Rivin was up. Her mother and brother had disappeared, first Baelfire, and then Eden. The girl didn’t know why they had gone, nor why they hadn’t come back, but she had accepted that they weren’t coming home. Something had happened, and while Rivin probably should have been afraid of what had happened to them she wasn’t. Not that she didn’t miss them, because she did, and it bothered her that she couldn’t do anything to bring them home, but what else could she do when she was a puppy? The shell her mother had given her had never felt colder… it was hard to look at it now, or find any new shells pretty. Rivin couldn’t explain what she was feeling in depth but it was bad and she didn’t like it.

Leaving the den, her remaining brothers, and father behind the remaining femme of the family emerges onto the beach. Her green eyes narrowed thoughtfully as she padded onto the sand and wondered, for a moment, if maybe the waves had swallowed up her brother… if her mother was still out there, somewhere, searching for Baelfire when he couldn’t be found. Rivin wrinkled her nose at the thought. They had been specifically instructed to stay away from the water though… surely Bael hadn’t been so foolish? She sighed, ears flicking back as she walked in the direction of the waves. She knew she shouldn’t get close, but she still liked to watch them and see how they sparkled under the light of the sun.

But this time, as she neared the water, she saw something different. Another pup and… a bird? Rivin’s ears perked forward at this. She didn’t know there were other pups here! Her mommy and daddy never told her. Why were they going so close to the water though? She raced forward, barking at them.

“You know the water is dangerous for puppies, right? Don’t get swallowed up!”

"Talk," 'Think.'

Calico Jack races toward the waves, Jolly Roger swooping low and squawking in joy as they approach the rolling water. A bark of alarm pulls the eager pup from his run, paws slowing and ears falling flat against his skull as he slows to a stop and looks toward the wolf that had caught him. He tries to put on his best, innocent, apologetic face he can muster, ready to face the adult and smoothly talk his way out of this.

However, to his great surprise, a pup, not from his family, is running at him while yelling. Eyes blink slowly as Jack looks to the fire streaked pup, trying to understand why she is so worried. Ears perk up as Calico cracks a charming grin, allowing the pup to get a little closer, before easily saying, “Ah, I won’t get swallowed up. I wasn’t going to go too far out, just wanted to get my paws wet!” It is a bold-faced lie but she doesn’t need to know that, if she is worried about him, then he won’t do anything too dangerous while she is here.

Jolly Roger caws loudly as he circles the pair, gracefully landing near them on the black sand and walks toward the pair until he is stand next to Jack. He clicks his beak as Cal looks over to the bird, a thoughtful expression tugging at his features. Looking back to fire-kissed pup, he gives a small flourish of a bow and says, “Calico Jack, at your service. And that,” a paw jerks in the direction of the blue and yellow juvenile macaw while saying, “is Jolly Roger. We thought nobody came out this early! Whatca doin’ out of bed?”

The question is posed but there is no condescension in his voice. Far from it, Jack is genuinely curious as to why someone else is up and keeping the strange hours he does. He is use to these hours only because his friend Nico usually visits in the early morning. But her? Who would willingly leave the warmth of their den so early if they didn’t have someone to play with? A gentle, easy smile is on his lips as he looks to her with great curiosity.
