Not even twenty-four hours at the castle and Tala already hated her life here. It wasn’t the castle itself or the people she’d met with a closed lip smile and detached senses. She hated that she still felt empty deep inside, so raw and exposed to the touch of the cold and the grind of the stone against her bones. Everything flared and quieted with unexpected pain. One moment she was burning with the threat of tears and the next she was sitting numbly against the glacial surface of a lake frozen over. They’d given her time to grieve but it never would have been enough. Yet the desert wolf knew that there would be no more room for excuses, no more room to grab the floo network and run away back to Jonathan’s house. The time for secret meetings upon that rock beneath the starry canopy had come and gone, now she’d have to find another rock to grab onto in this strange Scotland sea.

Tala’s fingertips were cold as she unpacked and threw things on her new bed. Her teeth were grit beneath her closed lips and every muscle in her body was coiled. It might have been better to sort her into the house of the snakes, but she was a warrior back at Ilvermony and it seemed that Hogwarts and its rusty sorting hat agreed that she’d be a warrior here too. Many of the faces of the students she’d met had become a blur, her mind hadn’t grasped any of their names like it might have before. She froze mid thought, looking at the rag doll in her hands. Little Red’s material had been worn down and softened from years of caressing, her locks looking a little ragged. Tala would’ve left her behind had there not been a precious memory behind it, one that she needed to carry her through the dark nights.

Next was her throw pillow, sewn by her mother’s careful fingers and embedded with love. The lump in Tala’s throat threatened to burst and she blinked back the tears rapidly, her eyes stinging as she set the rag doll down next to the pillow. Soft hair brushed against the back of her neck as she craned and the sensation caused her to shudder, the phantom feel of cold scissors making her fingers twitch. Those first days had been numbing, a whirlwind of activity and pain she barely remembered but somehow still managed to rock her to the core. The aftershocks of that earthquake were still wreaking havoc with her body’s own tectonic plates. At least, if anything happened, she could hope to find her cousin here among the strangers.

One deep, shuddering breath later had Tala pulling out the last of her belongings from the backpack; her heel turning as she flopped down onto the bed and bent a knee against it. The skeleton design on the wolf had her mind wandering to nothing in particular. Her hands trembled slightly but she ground her teeth until her jaw ached and forced her hands to work properly, forced the anger to ease back. Or at least to quiet down its hunger until she had something to nourish it with. Deep, dark brown eyes lifted at the approaching footsteps and her numb fingers dropped the plush to the ground and Tala was on her feet before the mass of curly hair had even registered.

She was lunging forward, heart pounding in her ears and her arms circling around the petite girl’s shoulders. Everything quivered, bones rattling against each other. Tala needed to share that energy before she shattered beneath the tremors of her own body. “Tati!” Saying the other wolf girl’s name was all that stood between Tala and breaking. Despite being a lone wolf, Tatienne Mulligan had always been her pack. She felt a bit of that emptiness fill with the prospect of family. Of recreating her pack.
