A song was hummed through a closed maw as cream colored paws trotted along the sand of the desert she was traversing. She had been padding about for a few days, simply not staying anywhere. Usually she stayed in one territory, often near her brothers or fathers, but, she just felt restless. She still had the wandering blood of her life before, and staying on the move was just an innate need.
And so she did.
Lanky legs carried her across the red sands and barren terrain, green eyes scanning the sunny horizon, the sun high in the blue, clear sky, beating down. The humming quickly turned into a slight pant as she felt the heat soak into her dark fur. Her warmer weather coat had starting growing yes, but it was still thick in weather such as this. She let out a sigh and decided to activate Companion, and, within an instant, Emmett was at her side, his tiny legs stuggling to keep up with her long, smooth stride. 'Why am I here, you walking pile of reckless fur?' Crow heard reverberate in her brainpan. She chuckled. Emmett always had something to say, a remark as sharp as his teeth. 'Oh, don't be such a spoilsport, friend-o. Just needed someone tha share the heat with.' She said, nodding up at the sun. She often summoned Emmett when bored or when an unpleasant feeling was dominant. 'Of course you did. Maybe if you stayed near your family--' The opposum was cut off by the green glare that he felt upon his back. Crow lifted an eyebrow as she walked, almost daring her companion to say something else. He gave nervous smile before turning it into a look of irritation and continued to scurry on.
Soon, however, Crow began to smell...sea. She was near the sea! A perfect place to cool off. She stride began to quicken, much to the annoyance of her tiny friend, but she didn't care. Soon, however, she smelt something else as well. 'Borders.' She thought, her mood deflating slightly. 'Well, no sea frolicking today! Now, maybe we can go find-' This time, the opposum was cut off by a sharp growl. 'Nonsense. We'll simply see who's kickin' it here.' A howl went up, calling any who lived here to meet her. Maybe she'd get a home. Sure, she'd still wander, but a place of food and protection sounded nice.
