[P]  All in Your Head

"Vorona?"

Areiya's voice was quiet and small among the trees. The way they towered over her head felt nothing like the comforting presence of her surrogate father, but like a looming figure, that was waiting to swoop down to snatch her up. Her mind seemed to run with the imagery and the little girl found herself crouching close to the ground. Where was the meadow? She couldn't remember which way she'd come in or which was the way out. The darkening sky didn't help her determine her direction either. What if it got too dark for her to see? What if she never found her way back?

"Vorona!?" she called in vain once more, her voice growing louder. "Vorona, where are you?!" She whirled around, trying to see if she could pick out something, anything among the dark forest that looked familiar. What if he had abandoned her like the others? Maybe he'd left her because she ran off? Her ears twitched frantically as she began to hear noises that she wasn't sure she was imagining or if they were real. It just had to be a rabbit... or a deer right? What if it was another wolf? Areiya's fur prickled in fear as her crest feathers stood on end. Then as if she suddenly spotted something looming in the darkness she bolted, frantically running in one direction. Fearing that something was following her, that something was chasing her. Little did she know that it was all in her childish imagination, but it seemed very real to the young girl. 

Her breath came in quick bursts as she ran. In her panic one of the little girl's talons caught on the root of a tree, sending her careening down a sandy hill. She got scraped up by stray branches and rocks as she went. When she finally skidded to a stop her creamy white fur was covered in dirt, leaves, and a little bit of blood from the tumble. She laid there for a minute, tears welling in her eyes before they overflowed down her cheeks and she began to wail. Uncaring of who heard her.

"Daddy!"

There had been no father in Vorona's life, not a good one anyway. He'd searched up and down his mind for hours on end every other night thinking about the ways he could possibly get revenge on that abusive sack of shit, and even though he'd come up with some he found to be suiting, they'd never come to light. Truth was, Vorona had not the slightest idea where his father was or if he was even still sucking all the good air from the trees. It was a pain he felt linger longer than he'd like to admit to himself, and one he wished on nobody. No, the male hadn't wanted a horrible father -- who the hell wanted a horrible father? He'd gotten one anyway. There had been mornings he recalled opening his eyes during his first days alone, only to find himself screaming in pain at a lashing that for some reason never came. Or an evening that was supposed to be full of contentment ruined by his inability to feed himself, or fuck, look at himself. 

Vorona was disgusted by every inch of his being, and rightfully so. He didn’t bath or groom, he went days without eating, sometimes he caught himself watching people pass him by like those very days in late April where he’d lost the only thing that made him… Not disgusting… Less, disgusting. 

Vorona had sat for days crying, only after the weeks searching, looking for his little sunshine. Oh, how she loved to listen to him sing that song, his dusty voice nothing more than a broken record, but she smiled and giggled at every crack in that Russian tone of his. When he was lucky, she would even join him, her tail wagging in time to the beat making his own scruffy one wiggle. ”You... “ He started lazily, body dragging through the forest as he retraced his steps for the hundredth time. ”Ty moye solnyshko..., moye yedinstvennoye solnyshko… You make me happy when skies are g--,” A flash of yellow caught his eye, and then a scent, and then a scream.

"Vorona, where are you?!" 

”AREIYA!” Vorona jolted, feathers flying from his pelt as he found himself moving quicker than he ever had in his entire life. He didn’t know if this was another episode, or if, just maybe she’d returned to him. Somehow she’d gone unnoticed from his sight, b-but how? It wasn’t possible, he knew it. This had happened to him before a few days prior and he wasn’t going to stand here and let it happen again! He was in control of his own life not h--,

”Daddy!”

”Daddy…?” The frame of Vorona came into view now, his head low, tail tucked, eyes full of tears as he let his gaze land on her. It was real. Areiya. ”... You call me your pa?” He still didn’t know if he could trust this, stepping forward slowly before attempting to reach out and touch her. For a moment he hesitated, and then all at once, he collapsed at her feet in sobs. ”My darling! My Sunshine!” He wrapped himself around her, whines pouring from his muzzle. She was alive.

Areiya froze at the sound of a familiar voice, her round, watery eyes spotted… Vorona. For a moment she worried that the forest was playing tricks on her, that the sight of the wolf that had cared for her thus far was a mirage, a cruel prank being played on her. He stepped forward, questioning, his voice wavering as if he wasn’t sure either. 

As Vorona ventured closer, reaching out, the young girl seemed to gravitate towards him, hoping that he wasn’t a ghost. When she felt the familiar touch of her guardian's fur the big wolf collapsed before her, her tower toppled over racked with sobs. She crawled closer as Vorona curled around her, her adoptive father’s cries seemed to bring forth new tears, she wailed again as she buried her head in his fur.

“I’m sorry!” she cried. “I-I’m sorry… I’m sorry...,” she whined over and over again. “I’m sorry, Daddy… I-I w-wo-won’t do it a-again.” She could barely speak between her sobbing and blubbering, sniffling wetly as she huddled against Vorona. Areiya kept apologizing, like it was a chant that would magically make Vorona stay. “P-Please d-don’t… don’t l-leave me,” she whimpered as fresh hot tears trailed down her cheeks.

And he wrapped around her, pulling her close into his arms and allowing her to soak in his warmth the way he wished his own father had done to him. He held her, rocked her slowly, dried her tears with stale breath, and together did they allow themselves to weep both in anxiety and love. Holding her only made the feeling of her being gone rush back into his bones, how it felt to lose her in the night. It had been so easy for it to happen... Whos to say it wouldn't happen again? Her, apparently, that was who. Her pleas were hushed by his shooshing, her own panic silencing his own as she always took priority. 

He cooed at her, shaking softly but a smile still somehow managed to spread onto his face. "No cry little Sun, S-Sunshine still shine on a r-rainy day." Broken English, but he tried his best, stuttering through his own tears. He wished he could tell her how important she really was to him, but he didn't have the words to do so. She reminded him of dandelions and bees, not the ones with the stingers, but the big fuzzy ones that landed on the dandelion. She was everything yellow. He turned to her, daring to groom her even though he stunk to high heaven. He wasn't very good at that either, probably worse than he was at English, but he knew she would appreciate it anyway. But hey, he deserved to be cut a little slack, he didn't know whether or not to groom her or preen her. "Areiya, w-where you go t-to?" That was the question, wasn't it? Where had she gone?

Areiya relished in the warmth of another wolf again. She relished in the feeling of being safe once more. She was so happy… so relieved that she had her big tower back. That she wasn’t lost anymore. After a long moment her sobs were replaced with pitiful sniffling and hiccups. The little girl pulled away a bit to look up at Vorona at his words, blinking up at him with wide eyes. 

A warm feeling filled her chest when he called her his sunshine. Her cheeks still wet with tears as she made an attempt to give him a smile though it wasn’t as genuine as it probably should have been. Her legs felt like jelly and her cuts and bruises she sustained from her stumble were starting to sting, but she tried. 

At the question of where she’d been her ears pulled back and she suddenly found looking her her talons more interesting than looking into Vorona’s eyes. She shuffled her paws awkwardly. What if he got angry? Should she lie? No… that would be bad. 

“Mm…,” she hummed quietly. “I… I w-wanted to explore more and I-I got lost. And I-I-I… I couldn’t find you. I’m sorry,” she whined again, looking up at Vorona with watery eyes. “P-Please don’t be m-mad…”
