The waves were gentle as they lapped against the sand, a soft sound that all creatures dream to hear while they slumber. It is the ultimate song of the beach, a song that never fails to be heard; or to cease. It draws them in with its soothing sound, as it has done with a red female. She walked along the wet sand, the tiny grains surrounding her paws before she tugged it away from the earth. The salty water lapped at her legs, pulling her fur back with it as it rolled towards the horizon. Looking over her shoulder, she saw that her prints were being erased, no proof that she had even been there. It was calming to know that, no one would know that she had been here. With a heavy sigh she walked forward once more, the sand sucking at her paws.
Echo glanced out at the water, her eyes glittering in the moonbeam. The moons light danced across the waters surface, almost like a single beam had been shattered into a million little pieces. It extended across the entire mass of liquid. It was mesmerizing, drawing the female towards it. She longed to race into the water, but she wasn't the strongest swimmer. The strong oceans tide would easily suck her deep into its belly, and she would never be seen again. She shuttered, forcing her eyes to focus on the area before her. Echo licked her lips, pulling in salt from the waves. She had once again left the lands of her pack, and was surprised that she hadn't been caught. Hayashi hadn't pulled her aside to say anything, so she thought that it was okay. Shaking her head she threw aside the thought, not letting her mind focus on it.
There were so many other things that closed in on her mind, making her shake her head forcefully to scatter them. Her past was floating around in her mind, like it always did. Not one day could go by without it haunting her, it was an ever present drone in her mind. She cast her gaze into the sky, gazing across the vast expanse of pin-pricked lights. The stars held much meaning to her, she did believe that her pups were up there. She liked to believe that they were looking down on her, urging her to move forward with her life. She needed to move on, not to forget, but it was so hard. How could she ever stop feeling the deep sadness she did for her lost ones? They were killed before her very eyes! Every time she spoke she was reminded of her past. Every time she didn't hear anything out of her left ear she remembered their screams. Every time she saw her scar she thought of being left there to die. Every time she saw another wolf, she thought of the damage they could do to her. She could trust no one, and was always scared when she did. This meant that she was always on the alert, as much as she could with only one hearing ear. Thankfully her other senses had grown stronger to accommodate the loss.
Echo was trying to focus on the things around her, but the ocean was too loud. She was walking with her one hearing ear closest to the waters edge, meaning that all she could hear was the lapping of the waves. Her nose was being assaulted by the saltiness of the water, as well as her mouth. Her eyes had to do all the word, the pale blue orbs dancing across the expanse of land in front of her. She had to be aware, she couldn't lose focus...
