    A Chance Reunion

    Date: July 12, 0009

    Ariana's life after the strange attack in the forest had been quiet. A welcome relief of course, but the quiet provided no answers to her questions. Who was that woman? What was that beast? Why did they decide to attack her? And most importantly...was the feline God really there, or had she just been hearing things? Everything was up in the air. The only way she could think of to get any answers required going back to the forest, which was a no go. Being murdered wasn't exactly on her list of 'to-do's. She focused on her job instead, putting in the hours and bringing home the dough! The young woman stepped out of the restaurant, a to-go bag clenched firmly in hand. She was still dressed in uniform, a bright orange shirt and a little hat atop her head. Her shift had been finished, which meant it was time to head back to the inn. The sun peered over the skyscrapers and made her comfortably warm.

    Walking down the sidewalk, Ariana's nose crinkled as the smoke of a passing car drifted into her face. So thick...and unpleasant! She sneezed, free hand digging around inside of her bag. A napkin was pulled out, and used to wipe off her nose. Staying out of the woods was great for avoiding that creature, but the werewolf was really beginning to miss the fresh air and the smell of the wilderness. The taste of a freshly caught kill... The very thought of it made her mouth water. Maybe she could hunt in the grasslands? Catch a rabbit or two? Surely she'd see that hulking beast coming without any trees to hide him! With mind abuzz with ideas for a weekend trip, Ariana continued down the sidewalk in a distracted pace, no hurry to leave the Business District just yet!

    Chuunch....click... Chunch.. click click

    Large black claws dug into the stable concrete of a city structure, securing a down facing nargacuga to the side of the building. His tail had used its spikes to click to the building’s roof. Curi had picked one of the taller buildings in the area which over looked the buzzing streets. He was in plain sight but most untrained eyes wouldn’t give his shadowy from any notice. The perks of being intelligent and an apex predator.

    A week prior to to day, he might have been much more heavier and fluffier, but after the ever so brilliant Scaramouche dealt with his excessive fur coat he felt like a load had been taken off his shoulders, literally. Sadly this didn’t ease the feeling he got recalling the most recent events that occurred at the lake. In truth it was much of a red blur of violence, like Curi has sat on the side watching as his body fought to the death. And that wasn’t the first time this had happened, which only solidified the explanation of he had been cursed again.

    ”Hufff...

    As a huge huffsigh escaped his chest the beast buried the memories of that cursed lake. With the nightmares haunting him it was difficult to get any sleep or even want to, so the fluffy being turned to what a friend had suggested, just not as violent. For closure? Revenge?

    Tired amber-ish eyes scanned the crowds of the business district. Busy bodies returning after a grueling day of being busy. What did these non-hunters do? The city didn’t need too many blacksmiths and kitchens. Then again there weren’t any palicos to help about, like with what he had seen.

    At one point of his life the curious beast has snuck into a village of hunters and town folks. He was much smaller then and much harder to spot. Mother wasn’t all too happy about it, but father was amused and got swatted for it. She had actually followed his scent to the village and they nearly turned completely it upside down looking for him. The hunters where in such a state of panic because they were being attacked by two very powerful and experienced nargacugas. Not just any ordinary nargacugas, but parents and special subspecies. So when a novice hunter spotted a tiny striped nargacuga kit wandering about she put two and two together.

    The red haired hunter fed him some clean raw meat to befriend him then proceeded lead him to his parents. Once they spotted little Curiosity with an unarmed huntress they calmed down enough to carefully approach the pair. Their kit was very happy to see them. Curi has booped his new hunter friend with the top of his head and ran off to greet his parents. He had no understanding of what all the fuss and noise was about, but he did note how worriedly angry his mother was.

    In his world creatures that weren’t humanoid didn’t speak any language of their own. Everything was expressed through actions and everything that happened was a lesson to be learned. So having happened upon a hunting party taking down one of his kind was an eye opener. Since then the beast had learned that valuable lesson and took more care in  learning to survive hunters.

    Nightmare red eyes sifted through the busy herds of the districts for swish of midnight black hair or a glint of ruby red eyes. As the seconds ticked by his grip tightened as his frustration grew, until eventually the deviant released a huge and heavy huffsigh of defeat. He would have to try either a different area or perhaps tomorrow, most likely the latter as this would be about the time his favorite people seems most free to hang out in the place called the Sanctuary.

    Sniff.... Sniff.... Huff...

    Curiosity closed his tired eyes and concentrated on the smells and noises, a last attempt before . He  filter out the sound of wheels and traffic, followed by the smell of food. The later had been more difficulty as it perked his interests. The sounds of laughter, much too light or deep to be her, and the voices of chittering children all but faded into the background. The beast had been with her long enough that he could track her in his sleep, but lately he has had no luck.

    Sniff...Sniff?...

    A particularly familiar scent passed by him gaining his complete interest. Hunting Scarlett would have to wait a new self proclaimed task has been acquired. A scent covered in the thick smell of lard and cooked red meat had made itself known.

    Tamed bufango... potaters?.... fluffy brown thing... NO... wolf...

    Curi angled his head to better follow the scent of the one he dubbed as the shifting lady. He quietly released his tail’s grip on the structure and climbed upwards from his perch to to roof. The beast was careful not to leave more than a few small holes where his claws had gripped.

    Once on the roof the deviant took to the ledge and jumped right off. He spread his wings and lazily followed the scent to some kind of restaurant. The smell of lard and cooked red meat was strongly emanating from it, assurance that he was on the right track.

    Landing near the structure, the nargacuga  noiselessly prowled around it until he hear cute sneeze. Striped furry ears perked up at the sound as it was followed by a rustling of a pack. Curiously the deviant followed his ears on paws to who the source was. A brown haired woman dressed in bright orange cloths and a matching hat stood before him.

    It was most definitely her! The bare traces of a wild wolf in her scent as a dead give away.. unless there was more than one. Hmmm... sniff.. sniff..

    Of course his silent steps hasn’t alerted her of his presence, good thing too he hadn’t quite a clue one what to do now. He couldn’t speak to her... just how was he going to apologize ??? The large beast paused to think this through, he actually trailed her as she moved about.

    ”Kitty!!! “
    “Alora! Wait! OH! Sis!”


    A sudden weight on his cheek told him that someone had glomped his face. Tiny blue hands stroked his furry chin eliciting a loud purr, so much for his stealth. The larger of the two blue aliens, the male, made it to their side. His little sister was already losing herself with his fur, again. This wasn’t the first time they had met, and Curi could only guess it wasn’t the last either. Taking a quick glance at his target then the pair’s parents standing on the sidewalk waving sheepishly.

    ”Prrrrrr...

    Since he couldn’t move his head or risk knocking over the child he had to find another way of getting the shifter’s attention.

    Oh! Maybe soon.. Prrrrrrrr~

    the small blue hands had found the spot under his fluffy chin that would usually case a cat to lean in or flop over, with a chance of swishing her all the beast could do was lean into her. Unfortunately, front the shifter’s angle it might have looked like he was going to eat the innocent little girl. What ever would the shifter do if she saw him like this?

    Ariana remained ignorant of the creature that tailed her, mind distracted by her own thoughts. Rabbit made for a tasty treat, not big enough for a full meal but definitely a snack! A quick little hunting trip would shake the cobwebs off of her bones. An excited yell drew her out of her own brain, especially since it was so close to her. Something about a kitty? A large one from the sound of that purr... Fueled by little more than a sense of curiosity, the young woman turned to look and found herself locking up almost immediately. The fingers still holding onto her bag clenched enough to tear through the paper. Fear was written all over her face. Fear...and anger.

    "You-!" All this time Ariana thought she'd be safe in the city! And here it was, just sitting there! Had it come just to pick another fight? Or-- remembering the child's voice, she noticed a little blue girl snuggling into that beast. Nuzzling into his fluff and scratching under his chin. Her neck seemed to crack as she glared at the alien parents. "What's wrong with you?! What kind of irresponsible parents just lets their kid go cuddle with some... monster!" Snapping her glare back to the nargacuga and his possible prey, Ariana did what she could do in this situation. She raised the bag of food over her head and threw it right at the beast. It likely wouldn't hit its mark, or it'd bounce uselessly off of his hide. It was just a paper bag with a burger inside, not exactly a javelin. It was clear that the young woman hadn't really thought through her 'attack'.

    "Get away from that kid! Go back to the forest and find somebody else to munch on!" Anger was surging like a red hot blaze in her veins. Yet she couldn't deny a prickle of fear at seeing the one thing she'd been hoping to avoid. It made its way to the city, seemingly followed her here... Would it try this again? Was it just not going to give up til it ate her? Ariana's fists shook, falling into a silent fuming as she waited to see what would happen.
