Tor noted Teager's lack of energy, as he had since they touched down in Alaska, though he tried not to mention it. Like his ancestors, he did not believe in showing weakness or fatigue unless there were no other option. It was best to appear strong in the face of an enemy, so as not to get picked off by the scavengers. Emotions were one thing; he had no problem admitting most things. But being awake for so long without rest took its toll on the body, and it was always easy to spot.

Blies lead them up the stairs to their cottage, crossing the long porch with soft steps, though he wore very nice dress shoes that should have at least made a thump whenever they touched the ground. These did not. Blies turned toward the pair of wolves and extended his hand, inside of which were two keycards.

"Use these to get inside the front and back doors. Simply wave them in front of the doorknob and the security system will do the rest. We don't expect any altercations, but one could never be too careful, especially when it comes to centuries of bad blood."

Tor understood exactly what the butler meant. There were those that did not want the two sides to exist in peace, and there was a chance that they would be victimized by those militants. It wasn't shocking or surprising to Tor, of course, but the fact that Blies had to offer the disclaimer in the first place spoke volumes.

"We will be careful. Thank you Blies." With a bow and a smile to the lady, Blies disappeared into the night, leaving the Weres to themselves. As instructed, Tor waved his card in front of the doorknob and, after hearing the click of the electronic lock, twisted the knob and pushed open the door.

It was no mansion like Delphi's home, but it was still a very nice house. Everything had a rustic feel, but was updated and well-kept. Exploring the house, Tor couldn't help but feel impressed by the time and effort spent in its creation and maintenance. Setting their stuff inside the door, Tor smiled a little and turned to Teager.

"You look like you might fall asleep standing up. Let's get you to a bedroom."

The worn out pup would have admired the home more than she did if she hadn't been so tired. Her body felt as if it were made of lead, taking great effort to lift her feet. Eyes half lidded, movements slow and uneven, Teager wobbled into the living area. Unable to stifle a yawn this time, the action shook her entire body, and made her eyes water. Her vision was blurry, and she leaned against the wall, using it to support her exhausted body.

Tors voice made her open her eyes, (she wasn't even aware she had closed them), and turn her gaze to him. She heard him, she just couldn't recall what he had said. Furrowing her brow, the young wolf tilted her head, confusion written across her pale face. "What..? What did you say?" Words slurred like she was drunk, her body and mind unwilling to allow her consciousness for much longer.

As she gazed at Tor, in her deluded state, she  let her mind wander, thoughts dancing in her head inspiring even more thoughts to spring up. What she wouldn't give to know what it felt like to have him to herself. To have him wake up with her in his bed, telling her good morning, holding onto her to keep her warm. In her mind it was more than a dream come true, it was what her heart ached for. But in the back of her mind, she knew that he would never belong to her. Frowning, Teagers expression changed, and she gazed at him sadly, her tiredness not filtering the emotions she'd rather not show to anyone. Especially Tor.

Realizing she had been staring at him, she blinked rapidly and cleared her throat, pushing herself off the wall. "I think I need to lie down.."

Worried that she may fall down if she were to trip, Tor rolled his eyes and scooped her easily off her feet and into his arms. As a human, he was strong. As a Were, far more so. "I told you this would happen," he teased as he carried Teager down the hallway. "I don't want you falling flat on your face halfway down the hall."

Tor did not hesitate when it came time to pick a room. Either he could take the master suite for himself, being the 'ranking officer' of the two, or he could do the kind thing and take the smaller room. It didn't take a rocket scientist to figure out the best course of action, so he turned into the master bedroom and eased her onto the bed, an expensive piece of furniture that would give even the most restless person a good night's sleep.

He, himself, was quite used to the simple lifestyle. A smaller room helped him feel more secure. Sometimes the outside world felt too big for him, and made him nervous. So letting Teager take the larger room was no big deal to him. The bed in his room was still plenty large in case he needed to sprawl out.

"There. All nice and comfy. I don't expect you to be up too early."

Teager stared up at Tor, her hair spread around her head like a halo, and she just stuck her tongue out. "I told you... I could last..." She slurred, her eyes falling closed. Sleep came quickly, sweeping her up and pulling her down into the darkness. Quite unlike Tors airplane nap, Teager did not have pleasant dreams. Since she had not slept following Masons attack, her dreams were plagued with darkness and teeth and pain and fear.

Multiple times during the night, she woke up, heart nearly pounding out of her chest, her body covered in a thin sheen of sweat. Residual fear pulsed through her veins making it incredibly difficult for her to remain asleep, and eventually, around four am she threw the blankets off her body and stumbled into the kitchen for a glass of water.

The nightmares had taken her by surprise; she hadn't had any since she was younger. Around eight or nine years old, she had horrendous nightmares that caused her to crawl into bed with her brother to calm down. But her brother wasn't there now, and if the nightmares progressed and persisted as they had back then, well, she would be in for a rough ride.

Sleep did not come quickly for Tor after he'd shown himself to his temporary room and climbed into bed. It wasn't a question of comfort, for he was in his usual sleeping attire: his own skin. The bed was plenty plush, with blankets and pillows of all varieties available. There was not too much noise around him, nor was there too little. By all accounts, he should have been able to pass out rather quickly. But the missing component was Julia.

Never having taken to sleeping alone, Tor's childhood was spent sleeping with his family or near his friends. But in that bedroom, in his bed, he did not have that comfort. He did not have Julia to keep him company, to give him someone to hold onto when he needed it. Tor rolled over to his side, facing the door, trying to imagine the warmth of a body next to his.

But Julia was not the one he was thinking of...

Just as he had started to drift to sleep, a noise inside the house startled him, awaken his senses from their near comatose state. After quickly throwing on a pair of shorts, the Were silently opened his door and crept down the hallway, his eyes wide as he scanned the darkness for threats. He did not find anything, except an exhausted Teager rummaging through the kitchen, messing with the faucet as she poured herself some water.

"Trouble sleeping again?"

Tors voice nearly made Teager jump out of her skin. Whirling around, she faced him with wide eyes, her body rigid. "What? No, I'm.. I'm sleeping fine. I was just thirsty." Despite saying that, her demeanor and attitude clearly spoke volumes to her mental state, especially given the way she reacted when Tor surprised her. "What about you? It's late, why are you up?"

Teager tried to step around herself being the conversation topic. It had slipped her mind that Tor had been around, over at her house hanging out with her brother when the worst of her night terrors hit. She could remember Tor being with Mason when she would crawl up into her brothers lap, and fall asleep after a particularly bad one. A flash of heat raced across her cheeks, but she brushed it aside. It wasn't important.

The older male sniffed a bit as he approached Teager. "When you're around someone long enough you start to notice little things about them that they themselves don't even realize. Mason rubs his left shoulder when he's nervous. Iorek clears his throat when he doesn't know what to do about something." Tor moved a few steps closer.

"You blink more when you lie. But I won't hold it against you." Tor patted the girl's shoulder softly as he went to pour himself some water as well. "I remember how Mason would hold you after a bad dream. Yours were particularly nightmarish, as I remember. I remember how scared you were back then."

The realization that came to Tor's mind at that moment might as well have been a heavy brick, for he felt especially stupid for not realizing it sooner. The last time she saw her brother, he was bloody and half broken. She'd been through a traumatic experience and was likely still very shaken by them.

Tor's tone shifted dramatically. No longer sarcastic, he was soft and sincere, trying to be comforting without making her feel like he was demeaning her. "I'm sorry, Teag. I know it's got to be rough right now. If you want, you can come to bed with me and i'll hold you so you can sleep." Silently he was hoping she would agree, for he wanted someone to hold as much as he figured she wanted to be held.

Finishing her water, Teager placed her glass in the sink and sighed, going to walk around him towards her room, but before she was past him she paused. The darkness that greeted her made her heart race, and fear blossomed in her chest again. Turning back to look at him, she bit her lip. "If.. if it wouldn't bother you... would you mind..?"

Her nightmares began to surface in front of her eyes in the darkness. The cold fear she had felt when she woke up began to creep up on her, and her body trembled. The details of the nightmares were lost but the intense terror she felt was still there, and made her not want to sleep anymore, even though she was beyond exhausted.

"I don't want to sleep alone, Tor. I can't..." Teager wanted to seem like an adult, or close to. She didn't want him to see her as a kid who had nightmares and needed to be held. But if she went back to her room, and she tried to sleep alone, she had no doubt that the nightmares would resurface and she'd end up more tired than when she went to bed. And she couldn't have that. If she was too tired to function, she could put the whole mission in jeopardy, or Tors life, and she didn't want that.

Tor held his glass in one hand, ice clinking against the sides as he moved back toward Teager. His free hand went around her shoulders, pulling her softly against him as her body continued to vibrate. "Of course I don't mind. I'm here for you." Slowly he escorted the trembling Were to her bedroom, deciding that having a little extra space in the bed might benefit them, just in case. Besides, it was the most comfortable piece of furniture in the house.

Setting his glass on the nightstand, Tor once again lead his companion to her bed, sitting her down on the side before quickly moving around to the other, climbing in and adjusting sheets and blankets. Tor laid next to her and patted the mattress. "Lay however you like and I will hold you and keep your demons away." Convinced that he could do just that, Tor invited Teager, a girl he dreamed about despite having a 'mate' back home, to lay with him, the thin layers of clothing being the only things that separated their bare skin.

With Tor by her side, Teager did not feel afraid to go back to sleep. Lying down on her side as she had before, with her head on a pillow, arms wrapped around it, she closed her eyes. Already she felt more at ease, his presence pushing back the darkness that haunted her. A soft sigh escaped her lips, and her body relaxed into the bed, curling under the blankets.

The pup thought it was her feelings for him that made her feel so safe, and secure. It never occurred to her that he returned her feelings. She didn't, she couldn't, think about it. Getting her hopes up when she was banished from her home would just break her heart even more. "Thank you.." Teager whispered, her body relaxing against him. She felt completely and totally at peace, and sleep came easily once again, no bad dreams in sight.

Sleep came to Tor not long after Teager's body relaxed completely, though he had stayed up for quite a while humming a melody he remembered from his childhood, something his parents would sing during the evening hours. He had forgotten the words to the song, but the tune never left his thoughts. It represented a simpler time in his life, one filled with love and laughter. Tor's world had changed drastically since then.

When she finally fell asleep, Tor leaned forward and kissed Teager on the head, then pulled her a little closer, whispering a goodnight to her before he closed his eyes and allowed sleep to overtake him.

The night passed simply for them, both at peace in their sleeping arrangement. Tor did not wake up until the sun began to filter through between the curtains, though he stayed still when he noticed that Teager was still sleeping. He didn't want to move, not only for her sake (not wanting to wake her up) but his own. It felt right to lay with the younger Were, as if the universe was trying to tell him something. But Tor had to remind himself that it was all in his head.

Teager was much younger than he, and she only saw him as a mentor and friend of her brother. There was no chance that she would ever even want to be his mate. But rather than dwell on what would eventually end, Tor forced himself to be content in that moment, holding the girl whom he truly loved but would never feel that love reciprocated again.

The young pup felt Tor wake, and she stirred, but didn't fully come into awareness. Rolling over, so she was facing him, her arms coiled around him, and she buried her face in his chest. Inhaling deeply, she sighed in content and smiled softly, pressing her whole body against his. Her dreams were happy, and made her feel content and loved. Tor was her mate, and he loved her. They were happy together, and were starting a family of their own. Mason was there, too, and there was no darkness or pain in sight.

Teager again inhaled deeply against him, his scent only fueling her impossible dreams. But it didn't matter. It was those dreams she held onto, to keep her from falling apart.

She slept for a bit longer, before her mind forced her to wake up. Blinking slowly, she yawned deeply, but did not move. She felt Tors warm body against her own, but her mind was foggy, and it hadn't fully registered that she was, pretty much, holding him hostage against her.

Even as the young woman stirred in his arms, Tor kept still, wanting her to be able to sleep as long as possible. Her rest was important, but he would be lying if he said it wasn't for selfish purposes as well. He wanted her there. He could only imagine that, in her mind, she was imagining her brother holding her so protectively, as she made no affectionate moves more than something a brother and sister would share.

Eventually though, the dream had to end. It was too good to be true anyway. He was never meant to have pups of his own, no matter how much he wanted them. For all the time that he and Julia had been together, never once had she conceived.

"Teag... it's time to wake up," Tor said softly, using the palm of his hand to rub her back, thankful that his manhood was not directly touching her, more than a brush here and there.

"Come on, pup. We have work to do." Tor hated that moment and tried to forget it just as it was happening.

Teager could feel Tors voice vibrate in his chest as he spoke, and it seemed to wake her up just a bit more. Her eyes opened a tad wider, but only so she could glare up at him, an unamused look on her face. She didnt want to get up. She wanted to sleep. "No." She grumbled. "No coffee.. I'm not getting up."

Turning her face back into his chest, she closed her eyes. She could be a beast without her coffee in the morning, and she was comfortable, and wanted to hold onto him as long as she could. When would she get this opportunity to hold him again? She could blame her clingyness on the fact that she was still half asleep, and he was warm. Her eyes closed, and for a moment, Teager pretended that her dreams had been real and he was hers. Dwelling on it too long made a sharp pain rush through her chest, and she had to bite her lip, hard.

Why didn't he choose her?

Shifting slightly, she rolled onto her back and sighed. Opening her eyes, she gave Tor a sideways glance. "Thank you for sleeping with me." A pause, and her cheeks flamed red. "No, no, that's not what I meant..." She sat up, and faced him. "Because of the nightmare, I meant, for... holding me... uh.. I am not getting up..." Teager curled back under the blankets, and covered her face with her pillow. "Just let me die here."

Tor was perfectly content letting her rest against him, nestled into his embrace and happy herself. If they were on a vacation, he would have stayed that way all day. Then again, if they stayed in bed all day, it would likely lead to other things, and those were too good to imagine. He had done Teager a kindness by holding her while she slept, and she wouldn't want anymore than that. Her stumbling over her words proved that. Or perhaps they didn't...

"No need to thank me. I was happy to do it." The muscular wolf hid his face by 'looking for his clothes', only to realize that he had moved into a different room halfway through the night, so he would have to go back to his room to get dressed. Though he had to wait a little bit before then. The natural occurrence that men dealt with after first waking did not pass over Tor. It worked its influence on him just as it did every other man.

"I know.... I wish we could just stay in bed all day. But we have important work to do. We have no return flight booked as of yet, though, so if we can get through this quickly, we could stick around for a few days and take a little vacation, okay?" Again the idea popped into his head, and it seemed even more appealing than the last time. Of course Julia wouldn't approve, but she didn't have to know when they finished their mission.

Moving the pillow from her face, the pup looked up at him, a half smile on her face. "Really? Okay." Rolling out of the bed, she ran her fingers through her hair, and started towards the door. "I'll go make coffee then. I want to finish this and go sightseeing!" She bounced down the hallway into the kitchen, not really thinking about how little clothes she was wearing. A simple tee and pair of hip hugging shirt shorts was all set had on, but it hardly mattered, did it? She'd been walking in front of him in her underwear for years. Although, she had to admit that she was now doing it for selfish reasons. Teager wanted Tor to see her as a woman, and not just Masons little sister. She wanted him to regret choosing that whore over her.

Trying to distract herself from plotting vengance that would never happen, she set to making coffee. As it brewed, she sat down at the table and let her mind wander back to her dreams. Her expression softened, a longing look in her eyes. Teager wanted Tor. She wanted him so bad it hurt. With a sigh, she laid her head on the table, a soft, sad smile on her lips. How cruel was the world to do something like this to her?

Pitying herself for a few more minutes she brushed the feelings away. That's not who she was, and she'd be damned if she turned into a self pitying pup. Standing up, she took a deep breath and shook it off, getting her coffee. They needed to get syarted. Teager had a lot to learn and even more to prove.

After Teager left the room, Tor snuck back into his own room to get some clothes, though he waited until she disappeared from sight completely. Not for modesty's sake, but for the simple fact that he wanted to view her form as it was. She had matured beautifully, with a figure any man would find attractive in a woman. The way she carried herself and bounced down the hall lended her even more attractiveness. Tor would not forget the way she looked. The mental image would last forever.

Tor emerged from his room a few moments later in a tank top and basketball short, which didn't do much to hide the shape of his manhood, though the definition and exact size were still obfuscated by the loose material. He poured himself a cup of coffee then sat down at the table across from Teager.

"Today we will visit the last known whereabouts, see what we can sniff out. The trail will be pretty cold by then, but we should be able to figure out something. I doubt anyone is going to be very willing to talk to us, but i'm sure we can persuade them."

Of course Tor was referring to the two things that he considered to be the best at loosening lips: money and pain. People almost always responded to one or the other, if not both. He was confident that they would come up with a good lead either at the site or through witnesses. They just needed a clear picture to make this happen.

Tor opened his mouth to speak again, but found himself interrupted by the doorbell. Anyone who worked for Delphi would have had access to the cottage, so the fact that whomever was at the door was not expected made him a little nervous. He stood from his place at the table and crossed through the threshold and looked through the peep hole.

A wave of dread fell over him like a brick wall.

Teager frowned, her gaze moving towards the door, setting her cup down on the table. As Tor went to the door, she moved to the kitchen window. Peeking outside, she saw the last person she wanted to see. Julia. A deep dark hatred welled up inside her, and she turned abruptly and left the kitchen, trotting down to her bedroom, where she closed the door a bit too hard. Not wanting to get him in trouble with his 'mate', she threw her clothes off and changed into tight jeans, and a long sleeved tight shirt, with a tank top underneath. Brushing her hair quickly, she threw it into a bun, and walked back out of her room, striding to the door.

Ducking under Tors arm, she grabbed the handle and yanked it open, just enough to see outside, but not allow the female wolf any room to enter. The look on Teagers face made her mood very apparent. She had not had nearly enough coffee for any of her bullshit.

"Hey, Jackie, what are you doing here? I'm pretty sure you weren't invited to the party." Her voice was dry, and cold, and she refused to move an inch to allow her entrance to the home.

"Teager!" Tor hissed, chiding her childish behavior, though he too was unhappy with Julia's arrival. He gripped the door and pulled until it opened up further. "Julia, i'm surprised to see you here. I didn't know Iorek was sending you, or anyone else for that matter."

The look on Julia's face was priceless. Across her normally delicate features was a look of pure disgust. Her rage for the pup boiled to the surface, forcing her to speak through clenched teeth and a strongly set jaw. "The Alpha did not send me. I came on my own. It's a dangerous mission and I thought you could use someone who was actually EXPERIENCED in these sorts of things, instead of someone who thinks everything is just a joke."

As Julia entered the room, Tor felt his temperature rise significantly. This was an utter disaster. The woman he was with and the woman he was in love with in the same house, neither of which having the slightest bit of respect for the other. Tor could not imagine a worse scenario if he tried.

"You traveled needlessly, Julia. It's not actually all that dangerous, and Teager has been very well behaved since we arrived." Tor's tone was more firm than he normally used around Julia, who wondered if her 'mate' was actually standing up for Teager against her.

"Don't be so modest, my love. I know it's far more risky than you let on. But i'm already here, so I might as well help." Julia moved and put her arms around Tor, overcompensating by hugging her tightly and longer than normal. Tor's face was not relieved. His eyes remained open, and his return embrace was choppy and impersonal.

It was only because Tor was there, that Teager behaved herself. For the most part. With the widest, sweetest smile she could muster in the moment, Teager tilted her head to the side. "If you wanted someone who was more experienced, then why did you come?" Before either of them could scold her, or snap at her, she disappeared back into the kitchen for her coffee. Deciding to be spiteful and hateful, Teager grabbed the coffee pot and spit in the coffee remaining, then set it back down before either of them entered the kitchen.

Another spiteful act, and childish, she knew, was taking the third chair at the table. Wrapping one foot around the leg of it, she pulled it close then rested her other foot on the seat. "You know, Jasmine, you're not needed here. You can leave at any time~" She called, taking a long sip of her coffee. Yes, she knew her name was Julia. Was she ever going to get it right? Absolutely not.

The hatred Teager felt for the woman was beyond any rational feeling. As long as she was in that house, as long as she had Tor, teager would make her life a living nightmare. And she wasn't sorry for it at all.

As soon as Teager exited the room, Julia was in Tor's face, her voice almost completely inaudible to anyone except him. "What the HELL is she doing here!? What is the Alpha thinking about sending her with you!? This is ridiculous!" The sting in Julia's voice irritated Tor, to the point of causing him to go back and replay previous conversations back in his head. He had never really notice how annoying her voice truly was.

"It's an exercise, i'm sure. Trying to teach her to be responsible. It's not your place to question the Alpha's orders." Tor's volume matched hers.

"But it is YOURS," she retaliated, harshly poking his chest as one would admonish a child. "It's no secret that you will be made Alpha when Iorek leaves us."

Tor's temperature was rising steadily. His eyes narrowed on Julia, and his voice, too, became sharp as a dagger, his volume increased slightly. "But until that time, I will follow his commands, and so will you."

Teager's voice pierced the strained conversation, only adding fuel to the fire. "I will murder that bitch where she stands if she can't shut the fuck up!" The threat made Tor scowl harshly. Enough was enough.

"Shut it! You will not touch her. I cannot force you to go home, but I will say that you are not permitted to lay one finger on her, or you'll answer to me!" Tor's intimidating figure towered over Julia, making her feel small and weak compared to him.

Without another word, Tor moved into the kitchen. He grabbed his coffee cup from the table and decided to have another cup.

With a raised eyebrow and a smirk on her lips, Teager watched Tor enter the kitchen and go for the coffee. That was fine. He was going to take that harlots side anyway and go back to treating her like a nuisance, so he deserved it, too. She didn't know what they had talked about while she was in the kitchen, and frankly she didn't care. Whatever it was, though, he was tense, and irritated and despite her urge to push more buttons she left him alone.

"We are going to need to inform Delphi of this.. unannounced, unwanted, irritatingly rude development." Teager sipped her coffee, her tone light.

Before his mate had shown up to ruin it, Teager was actually enjoying the mission. Wait, if she was here, that meant that there would be no sightseeing when the mission was over. Her heart sank, and she felt her mood drop dramatically. So, that meant as soon as the mission was finished, that was it. Teager would never see him again. The pain in her chest returned, and she stood abruptly. The suddenness of the feeling caught her off guard, and she felt tears rising. Without a word, she walked down the hallway as calmly as possible to the bathroom.

Shutting the door behind her, and locking it, the pup turned the faucet on and sank to the floor. Get a grip.. it's fine. I'm over this. I'm okay. It took her a few minutes to calm herself down, shoving her fear and pain to the back of her mind as far as it could go.

Tor's heart broken in half when Teager left the room, the pain visible on his face, but only to himself, as Julia was standing behind him, glaring at the girl. He wanted so much to follow her, to break down the door and confess his feelings for her, but it wouldn't only bring more pain. It would be awkward between them; there would be no way she would want to continue working with him knowing how he felt, and Julia certainly wouldn't have anything to do with it.

"She's not wrong," Julia said, piercing the silence with her stupid voice. "You should tell the lady i'm here, so she doesn't become suspicious. Then, maybe you can send the pup on some random errand and I can show you how lonely i've been in bed without you."

Even the tone she used to try to seduce Tor aggravated him. He no longer wanted her in that way, but how could he say no without making her suspicious? If Iorek found out that he and Teager had done things behind Julia's back, it would surely bring a harsh punishment, especially to the young pup. Tor wouldn't let that happen.

"We have work to do first. We'll go meet Delphi, then figure out what to do from there." Without another word Tor went back to the living room to put on his shoes, lingering by the bathroom door, scratching his nails along the wood, hoping she would hear him.

Scratching on the wall pulled Teager out of her spiralling depressed mood, and her eyes widened. She was acting like a child. A heart broken, defeated pup. And she was not that. Not anymore. Taking a deep breath, she stood up, and steeled her resolve. She was not going to let that mega bitch get the best of her.

Pushing herself to her feet, she stood up and washed her face, erasing any evidence of her sorrow. Walking out of the room, she headed down the hall and got her shoes, slipping them on. She completely brushed past Julia as if she wasn't there, like she didn't exist. Making sure she had her key card on her, she opened the door and stepped outaide, taking a deep breath of the fresh air.

"C'mon Tor, we have an Envoy to find." She called. The fresh air cleared her mind, and she resolved herself to behaving. For the time being. The pup was going to ignore Julia's existence completely and totally, for as long as she could stand it. She would not intentionally start fights with her, she would not egg her on, or instigate. Teager was going to be the bigger wolf. Now, she wasn't going to respect her, oh no, but she wasn't going to play into her underhanded game to get her to fuck up in front of Tor.

Tor was very quiet as the trio made their way back to Delphi's home, speaking very little if at all, even when spoken to. No matter how hard he tried, he always seemed to find himself in the middle, usually with Teager on one side. Whether he was defending her to the Alpha, or putting out social fires she "didn't start". He remembered earlier on, several of the smaller pups teasing her because she didn't complete a challenge as fast as they had. Oh how they suffered when Tor got a hold of them. Never again did any of them tease her, and she probably never even knew he became involved.

Tor knocked when they reached their destination. Much to his surprise, it was not Bries that met them at the door, but Madam Delphi herself, dressed in a slinky revealing robe made of silk that left only a little to the imagination as if flowed from her shoulders like cream.

"Teager! Tor! Good morning you two," she said happily, staying out of the sunlight but seemingly not bothered by the hour at which they came calling. "I didn't expect to see y... all of you...? Who is this?"

"This is Julia, another member of our clan come to aid us. Julia, this is Delphi, the will and intellect behind the peace agreement."

Julia nodded politely. "It's nice to meet you, Madam Delphi. A tru..."

"Come in, come in. Bries, put the kettle on!" Delphi not only completely ignored the third wheel, but interrupted her brazenly, completely unimpressed by her from the very moment she laid her eyes on the female Were.

"It's good you have come this morning. I've heard news about our missing Envoy." Bries appeared then with a platter of meats and cheeses, then left silently to work on the tea. "I have heard that a local wolf clan is preparing to take responsibility for the kidnapping, and will ransom her off, though I do not know what their price will be."
