Food delivery for tribe and hunting (Open)

Post by BlueClaw on Fri Aug 14, 2015 2:02 pm

*Blueclaw dropped the moose and 5 squirrels on the ground as Dagger dropped his own kills along with the other two. Its was getting dark and she hopped someone would take some food that she got just for her tribe. She saw that her pack was drooling at the sight of so much food and HISSED at them before BARKING out, trying to get her tribes attention and give them food*

Pyrrhus ran through the woods, jumping over fallen trees. His armor perfect for this situation, Lightweight and flexible, not loud and clanky. He sat up against tree and took the pack off his back, opening it and drinking the water from a canteen inside. He didn't notice the group of raptor dragons about 100 feet away from him. He rested against the tree with his eyes closed, catching his breath.

*Blueclaw whimpered slightly, seeing no one was coming, but she tried to stay positive anyway. Maybe they didn't hear her...She BARKED again, raising her head this time and letting it out loud. The feathers on her head slowly lowered as she got sadder. She looked at her hungry pack and allowed them to feast on a moose, they fought over who should have what a lot*

Pyrrhus's ears perked as he heard a sort of bark in the distance. This was like nothing he'd heard before. He knew the local wildlife didn't make that noise either. Deciding to investigate he moved in closer. Peering through a bush he spotted what appeared to be a group of dragons, Devouring a moose. A moose as big as him...

The thought sent shivers down his spine. He went dead still, trying not to be seen or heard.

*Blueclaws feathers were flat on her head now as she lay down and put her head on the ground with a whimper. She worked so hard for this tribe....yet no one came and thanked her for providing for them.....even someone taking the food would please her......*


*While the other two were busy tearing limbs off the moose and devouring even the bones, Dagger came over and nuzzled his friend, knowing that she was having a hard time trying to be accepted. Blueclaw always did try her best for everyone. But not once in her life did she receive a thanks outside her pack*

Pyrrhus studied the beasts. Two appeared to be ripping apart a dead moose, One appeared to be laying down resting, and on appeared to be comforting them. 'Maybe they won't kill me right away...? No thats a stupid idea, they stand about 60 feet above me and could swallow me whole..' Pyrrhus thought as he made a plan. Escaping would make too much noise and get him killed and his best bet for survival would be to stay put and not make any noise. It would allow the others to move on and he most likely wouldn't be caught, so thats what he did.

*Blueclaws head snapped up as she saw a small being in a tree, she got up and tapped her claws on the ground, then backed away and HISSED loudly upon seeing what he was*

Pyrrhus dropped from the tree and began backing away from the beast hissing at him. 'Well this is going to end poorly...' He backed away, not wanting to be chased, But worst comes to worst and he'd be running for his life. He had done it before, he knew what to do to escape. But this time with four would be different...

*Blueclaw saw he didn't attack and stopped hissing, carefully and slowly walking over, she lowered her head to get a better look at the....thingy....* "What are you.....?"


*Dagger continued hissing at the intruder, he didn't look like a dragon, so he wouldn't allow it to have their catch*

Pyrrhus looked at the two, intimidation was of course setting in. His attention turned to the one that lowered its head to him, still hearing the other one making a lot of racket. Continuing to back away he answered the question. "Im uh... Err... A wolf ish reptilian... I don't even know how I was made..." He said backing away faster now.

"W-wait....don't you want something to eat....?" *She BARKED at the other three and they went silent.*

Pyrrhus gulped as she spoke. "I'm uh... Im pretty sure I'll end up becoming the food..." He said nervously and scared a little. Eating with... Giant beasts towering over him? The thought didn't ease Pyrrhus at all. He tried to slink backwards into the forest but she clearly wouldn't let him be.

"We wont eat you....but if you must go....thats okay.....Ill try to wait for the rest of my tribe..." *She backed up sadly and turned away, flopping down on the ground and held back tears. Did she make a mistake in joining a tribe....?*

Pyrrhus could hear the dragon's voice change tones from a more harsh tone to a softer, sad tone. He watched her turn away slinking back into the forest, he decided to follow, thinking he may of insulted her in someway, which he did not want to happen. He slowly followed her back, hearing a thud as he watched her fall onto the ground, her eyes barely holding back tears. "Hey... Don't cry... Whats a matter...?"

Pyrrhus knelt down on the ground in front of the dragon, placing one of his hands on a part of the wing membrane now covering her face. "I think you've done good here, and i'm not just saying that, this is enough food to feed something my size for a month, thats a lot of food!" He said to her. He hoped that he wouldn't get the attention of the others, if they saw this they most likely would kill him thinking he harmed her or something, which wouldn't end well... At all...

Pyrrhus stood up in relief that she was better now. He didn't know what drove him to care for others, especially dragons. "Ill clean up what's left... You guys take what you need first. He replied looking at her. He wanted to play the safe route around things and not go and take. It was a simple equation, Go and take = Theft = Death. Plain and simple.

"Are you sure? We wont hurt you. We promise." *Blueclaw looked at him with honest concern. Thinking he was either being very polite, or just scared of them. They never hurt beings like them. Much less that talked*

Pyrrhus looked at the dragon, He knew she most likely wouldn't kill him, But he couldn't help being intimidated by beasts towering over him. He looked around at the three others. "Uh... Y-yeah..... I... Uh... Im pretty sure I am..." Pyrrhus said awkwardly.
