Even though the cargo ship was made of cold high-tensile steel, inside the ship was a familial warmth that helped make the place a home. It was out of the ordinary to make a vessel that was meant to transport product and transform it into a home, and yet they did. They could have lived anywhere within Sacrosanct or on the outskirts of the city and yet they resided here in the West. It seemed silly, but the young woman never thought that the cargo ship would ever sink. The Ark just seemed like it was a piece of structure that would never leave its permanent spot beside the docks, it would be here throughout their lifetime. It was a shame to think that, that may not be the case anymore. It was extremely uncomfortable this sudden terrifying feeling, that was starting to gnaw at the pit of her stomach. It had been a very long time since she felt that terrible feeling, being afraid in her own home. While the other Weres began to panic and attempt to evacuate the ship, the she-wolf kept her eyes focused on Alexis, attempting to reach the woman so they could at least get to the safety of the fighting ring. Funny. The fighting ring was the least safe place to be on any other night. Allowing her arm to proactively wrap over the were-fox shoulders, she walked with her up the steps for what would probably be the last time. The stench of the recent blood from the Okapi reached her nostrils again, causing the woman to gag for a moment, finding it absolutely horrid. Hearing Alexis inquiry she replied gently, masking her worry.
"I've just been feeling off is late, everything is just too sensitive."
What was too sensitive, she purposefully left out. She wasn't quite ready to share her news. Just another week and she would be in the clear to let her mate and pack know what was going on. So long as everything was all right when the time was right. Keeping those dark shadows around the two her eyes scanned the panic crowd, looking for something not right, hoping this wasn't an ambush. It was that familiar sense of her mate that caught her attention. Feeling that familiar sense of the shadow transportation, she closed her eyes, finding that jolt uncomfortable too. Reopening her eyes she saw they were back within their own bedroom. After seeing Tobias attempt to pack their essentials, she gently, but firmly told her husband that his attempt would not do. Already finding duffle bags to pack with, she gave one to Alexis, unsure if she had one or not. As the she-wolf started looking around at what they would need to pack she couldn't help, but feel that pang of sadness again. All those years, those memories would be all gone later tonight. When she daydreamed about what life would be like, she always assumed her child would learn how to walk here within the safety of their bedroom, running around the Ark to find her child playing 'hide and seek' with their Father, and having to yank her child from trying to enter in the fighting ring to be just like Dad. A shame she wouldn't see such things. After finishing up their packing she heard Tobias speak. With a nod in agreement she followed after him to get Alexis.
Finding Alexis packed with her belongings she gave the girl a small smile, almost as reassuring herself and the were-fox that all would be well. Hearing Tobias say they would need to get two more favorites, she shrugged her shoulders unsure about what he meant...because truly it could mean anything. Making their way into towards Tetradore's room she watched as Mira attempted to pack some of Tetradore's things. Once Mira and Tobias were finished packing up last minute things she watched as the familiar shadows started to swirl around them. Keeping a hold of the bags she took a deep breath and closed her eyes, feeling quite uneasy with this mode of necessary, swift transportation. As they made it to the dock her eyes widened in complete shock at seeing her home of a few years tilt to the side, taking in the water at a rapid rate. A very, very soft whimper was caught in the back of her throat, dismayed to see their home disappear. That mention of shower sharks from her mate caused her to shake her head in disagreement, speaking dejectedly.
"A hole just doesn't appear on a ship like that...someone or something had to make it...and shower sharks never existed."
It all just simply didn't make any sense. Raven didn't see what caused the ship to get a hole. It wasn't like the hole just decided to magically appear. As the ship continued to sink she heard her mate say her name. Looking at her mate she noticed he was pointing at something, following his direction, her eyes narrowed seeing the three bodies of Weres flailing about within the waters. Lifting up one of her hands she started to focus on one of the Weres, waiting until she felt she had a firm hold before slowly lifting the Were up and brining it over towards their side of the docks, placing them gently beside Alexis so she can look them over. She would repeat this process for the other two, mentally thanking whoever decided she could have that telekinesis gift. As the Ark was completely submerged the young wolf shook her head miserably. With a somber tone, she spoke aloud what everyone was possibly wondering.
"I never thought I'd, that we'd, lose a home again...where are we going to go, what are we going to do?"
Surely everyone was feeling the same dismal feelings. Absentmindedly she placed one hand on her stomach, keeping her eyes focused on the spot where the Ark had once been. It was a fair question. What was their pack supposed to do when their home and reputation of power was completely destroyed?
