MaellIt didn't take long for Maell to realize that the loner life was a lot more difficult than she thought it would be. Difficult and so not suited for her. It could even be considered a miracle that she was still alive. Extremely malnourished and lonely, indeed, but alive.
Truth was, up until now, she had been lucky. Nothing but lucky.
No one had tried to kill her except that angry badger when she tried to "steal" his food - in her favor, Maell didn't know that such a small mouse carcass could be anyone's meal, except hers, obviously. There had been no natural disasters and no traumatic encounters, and while the food was scarce and hard to find, the female managed to keep her paws moving for god knows how long. Or where. She had already lost track of the days and never knew where she was to begin with. With such few land marks to direct herself off, it wouldn't be surprising to find out she'd been wandering in circles all this time.
But how long would it last?
Maell didn't take the generosity nature offered her for granted. She wasn't that stupid. In fact, she often blessed the areas she traveled through for being so gracious to her. But the uncertainty of what the next day, or even the next hour, would bring her was... discouraging, to say the least. 'Why does everyone leave me...' The female shut her eyes, letting a loud sigh slip through her lips at the thought. Her legs carried her as she strolled through the area, trying to find any sign of life. Preferably that of the canid type. It had been so long since she last wandered upon someone, or even a pack. The thought of finding her family still lingered in the back of her mind, but it had been so long since their disappearance that it had begun to fade. Wouldn't it be just that easy though? They would accept her back, some would even celebrate her return, she would have food, safety and company. Life would be so much easier if she could just find them.
Well, the girl could dream at least.
