"You all are absolutely insane!" Black growled as we made our way up to the cave. I could see Thorn's head peering out from the side of the cave, looking at us as we walked towards her. She looked confused, and I could only guess what she was thinking. She probably thought we were insane, too. Or at least she thought Black was, and that at least made sense. He was crazy.
"You've said that before," I told him quietly. I nudged the sick pup a little to get her to move, and she started walking a little bit again. She was slow, and once we got to the cave, I didn't want her to move, even when the others and I were going to argue. I didn't want to argue with them, but I knew that I had to if I wanted the pups to not die in the middle of the forest.
"Are you all right?" Thorn asked when we got close enough to her.
Snow nodded. "Yeah, we're fine, but these two aren't," she answered, picking up the sick pup by the scruff of her neck. She let out a quiet yelp, and the other pup growled quietly. I wished that I could tell him to relax, but he couldn't understand me. All I could do was nudge him a little bit, and he turned and glared at me.
"What happened?" Thorn asked.
"I found some pups in the woods," I answered her.
"That doesn't happen every day," Thorn muttered. She looked at the sick one, but she didn't say anything else.
"You think?" Black snarled. "Rain thinks its a good idea to keep them and start a pack out of them."
Thorn was quiet for a few seconds. "Well... Why not?"
Black stared. Apparently I wasn't the only one who was making him speechless. "Because we'll have to train them and feed them," he answered. His voice was quieter now, with less of a snarl.
"And that's a problem?" Thorn asked. "There's four of us and two of them. They probably don't eat much, and, judging by the look of the sick one, she's not gonna be eating too much anytime soon."
Snow walked inside of the cave and set the sick pup down in the back. Her brother went over to her almost immediately afterwards. I shook my head slightly, trying to get myself to focus.
"Rain wants to actually start a pack," Black explained. I could tell he was trying to sound smart. Smarter than he was. "Find other wolves and bring them here."
"And that's a bad thing?" Thorn asked again. She sounded smarter than Black now, which wasn't that hard to do.
"They'll think we're freaks!" Black growled.
I looked at him. "That's because we are," I told him. "Freaks of nature. Maybe that will actually get other wolves to come to us."
"Yeah, if they're insane," Black argued, looking at me again.
"Okay, look," Snow said, butting in. "You're overruled. Three to one. We win. The pups stay, and we start a pack. That doesn't mean that we have to start looking now, though," she added when Black looked as if he was about to argue again. "All we have to do is wait until the pups can talk and hunt for themselves."
