    Wolves and Bats (Balthazar)

    Post by Deshitana on Sun 22 Jul - 18:42

    He drifted from the guild back out onto the streets; however, instead of exploring the town the creature would head towards the exit of the place and after a bit of walking he'd find himself in the forest again. With nature around him once more, the creature would drift off the dirt path and head into the lush grasses of the area. Making sure he was alone, he would hide his bags before shifting into his wolf form. It was time to get lunch and that meant hunting.

    Sniffing the air, he would take in the various scents around the area picking out which ones were worth paying attention to and which ones weren’t. After a moment, he would pick up a familiar smell – the smell of a particular bird that liked to stay on the ground. Following the trail, the wolf would make its way into deeper grasses before crouching down like a cat and sneaking his way towards the area his prey was in.

    Laying low, he would become still as he watched the opening up ahead. He could see a burrow up ahead where his prey rested, but he couldn’t just go up to it and disturb the place. No. He needed to wait. Wait for the bird to—Ah-ha!

    A tan colored head would poke itself out of the hole and look around a bit before pulling itself out. Looking around once more, the bird would begin to waddle away in search of food completely oblivious that it was being watched. Holding his position for a moment longer, the wolf would wait for the bird to get a little ways away before following. He would continue to follow the bird until it decided to stop to peck at some bugs. Taking the chance, the wolf would move quickly from his hiding spot before attempting the pounce on the bird; however, the bird was quicker than expected and at the last moment it ran out of the way leaving the wolf with only a feather in his mouth. Spitting the feather out, the wolf would give chase not wanting to lose his meal.

    He’d chase the creature for a good while before finally sinking his fangs into it near the river. Pleased with the catch, he’d pick it up in his jaws and head back towards the area he wanted to set up camp so he could prepare it and eat it.

    ...

    It was boredom that led the bat-like man to seek out this particular area of land. The town was known for being an entertainment hub after all, so it was easily on top of the list of places to head to when seeking a bit of extra action. Sounds like a perfect plan, doesn't it? Yeah, only if nothing goes wrong, and in this world, that's a hard bargain to ask for. Thus, lo and behold, Balthazar got a little ticked off by a loud misbehaving kid quite early in his wander trip around the town, causing him to decide to find a more serene place for a moment to take a break from the unsolicited annoyances trying to get at him.

    That was how he eventually found himself in the nearby forest, taking a chill walk across as he listened to the local birds chirp random songs. Surprisingly quite a pleasant past-time, and it would have continued being so, had he not accidentally crossed paths with...some sort of canine carrying a dead bird. Oops dangerous wildlife, heh. "Woof?", he'd simply tilt his head at the scenery he came upon, mostly unbothered for the moment. He could always run if he got attacked for some reason.

    He would continue to walk with his meal for a short period of time before his path was blocked by something rather tall and solid. Stopping in his tracks, the wolf would look up at the other and hear the sound, his ears twitching at the sound. Staying still for a while, he considered what to do. He could walk around the other, talk, stare, or act like a regular wolf. Though what he did instead was none of that as he responded back with a muffled bark for now before looking back at the other for a few seconds longer taking in the features of the other.

    Outside of height, the other had fangs and strange ears and held a strange scent on him that seemed to be a mix of human and was that bat? Well that would explain the ears, but that didn’t explain what the other was. Hmm curious, but someone who was kind of in his way of lunch. Blinking a bit, he would eventually look away and turning slightly he would move around the man and begin to walk again though a few steps away, the creature would pause again.

    “Who are you?” a voice that sounded both like a male and female speaking at once would ask, the sound coming from the other’s mind versus all around. As for where the voice came from? Well, the fact the wolf was turned slightly looking at him was clue enough of that.

    "A random person passing by. Duh." The bat-like man would answer after a while of contemplation, with a nonchalant shrug. Assuming it was the canine that was currently speaking to him, it kinda looked like their original intent was to just walk around him and keep going on their merry way. Well, it's not like it was his goal to stop them or anything, so he chose to keep a more of a neutral approach at the moment. Hey, if the talking wolf really wanted to bother with him, they could always make more of an effort. As long as he wasn't being attacked or anything equally harmful, he was fine either way. Though, he would admit something interesting happening would make the day less of a drag for sure.

    The wolf would continue to watch the other as silence fell over the area for a short period of time and then there was a chuckle. "Are you always a smart ass when someone is trying to get your name?" the strange voice would ask as the wolf flicked its tail thinking. This one was indeed strange, but the wolf wondered if it had offended the creature somehow by simply walking around the guy and taking the few paces it did. Was this the cause of his behavior or had the wolf simply gotten unlucky today by not finding a friendly being like he had at the guild?

    Hmm. Well whatever the case, the creature wasn't too bothered as it watched the other for a few moments before turning to look forward again. "Walk with us?" the creature would ask watching the forest around it for a few seconds as it kept the kill in its mouth. Then turning slightly again, it would look back at the other.

    ...

    "You only asked who I am, not my name. I technically answered the given question, didn't I?" The bat-like man would lazily stick his tongue out for a moment. Was he being a smart ass? Maybe, but he wasn't obliged to answer a question perfectly if he didn't feel like doing so, was he now? "Anyway, if you're really interested in me, why are you showing me your booty? I don't have a thing for wolf butt, trust me." He still wasn't sure why the odd positioning that looked as if they were just about to walk off.

    "But yeah, I've got no special goal right now, so I can walk alright. Better not take me somewhere funny though.", he'd state with a faint laugh, taking a few steps towards the canine. He had no idea what the hell this was about, so he'd be on guard a little for the moment, knowing how some wild beasts can be and the pain it can result in. But hey, it was some kind of entertainment, so he'd roll along for now.

    “This is true, but often times a name is given instead,” the creature’s voice would say as they simply observed the other. Usually remarks like the one given wasn’t expected from such a question. “Though since you want to be so specific, what is your name?” Was that better for the other? As for that other question. “Our booty has the right to look at whoever it pleases and it just so happens we were not exactly in the mood to turn around fully,” the creature would say before sighing a bit and then becoming curious it would ask. “What sort of butt are you interested in then?” A strange question maybe, but hey a valid one none the less.

    Well whatever came from that one, the wolf would snort a bit at the last comment. “We are not interested in eating you, we have lunch right here,” the voice would say as the wolf turned enough for the other to see the bird in its mouth. “And don’t worry, we aren’t interested in visiting weird places right now. You are safe.” Or as safe as one could be with a creature such as itself. In any case, as the other walked to its side the wolf would shift its weight and begin to move once more towards its camp sight.

    “Guess I just don’t do often then.”, he would reply with a mildly amused tone. It wasn’t exactly that he was trying to stick out or anything..well, not in this particular case at least, but being ‘exact’ with his answers to things was something he was generally good at. His name was not the request, therefore it didn’t absolutely need to be included. “Call me Balthazar then.” That was fine too. “Your booty has eyes? Must be a special one.”, he’d chuckle briefly before offering the canine a nonchalant shrug. “Yeah well, I’d rather not be called out for bestiality you know? So preferably a….non furry butt.” Animals were all dandy and fine, but he wouldn’t think himself attracted to them. Nooot really.

    “Like I’d let you. Getting injured would still suck though.” He wouldn’t go down to one animal that easily. In any case, he’d wave a hand as he walked. “So, what do you want with me anyway?”

    “So we see,” the voice would say as the wolf kept walking for the time being with the bird in its mouth. The creature couldn’t determine if this meeting was a good or bad thing, but at least for now they could potentially be entertained. Either way, the wolf would give a light "mph" at the name before speaking again. “Nice to meet you then Balthazar,” it would respond back before chuckling at the response it got from the booty comment. “Perhaps it is special and perhaps it is not.” Either way the point still stood. It had the right to face whichever way it wanted to when speaking to a person or thing. That aside, the creature would glance up at the other when it came to interest in butts. “Then perhaps you prefer scales instead?” it would ask mostly joking with that one though how it would be taken was up to the other.

    “Ah. A fighter. Good. If you ever became my prey we have something to look forward to.” While the creature didn’t prompt violence, it did love a good hunt and tussle here and there even more so when said thing was a challenger or potential food. Perhaps it was weird in that regard, but it just felt so much more pleasing to win after a struggle versus having something just handed out. Though it wouldn’t refuse hand outs either. “Injuries come with the territory of a fight, but there is no reason for that right now. As for what we want with you, we suppose just to talk. You do seem like someone interesting to pass the time with.”

    ...

    “Sure, sure.” Now that the typical meeting pleasantries were over though… “So basically, no straight answer from you, eh?”, he’d quip back at the perhaps comment. To be honest, Balthazar wasn’t entirely sure what was chuckle-worthy when it came to that statement since it was just the flat middle of the road answer, but he’d let that just fly over him at the moment. Not like he legitimately wanted to be told in detail as to whether one’s ass had its own eyes or not. Too much unnecessary information after all. “Don’t scales imply animal too?” Sounded just about on the same level as lots of fur. If he wasn’t about to be into wolf ass, why would he want a fish version or such? Well, a question for another day, maybe.

    Balthazar would wave his hand at the canine casually. “Better hope that does not happen, for I don’t appreciate being attacked by people. So you’d better have a good reason for doing that.” Yeah, he had no issue with fighting and all that, but someone attacking him would automatically kind of put them into a suspicious category, because really, who does that without having some sort of a negative goal in mind? You don’t just try to massacre people for the heck of it normally. Nevertheless, he would offer a somewhat cheeky smirk. “Or maybe it’s that I’m the only person around right now you can even try to talk to.” There didn’t appear to be anyone within their vicinity for the time being, thus there was absolutely no competition to be had. “Though, what’s up with that ‘we’ thing? I may be a bat, but I’m not blind, and there’s only one of you here.” He wasn’t really getting the weird speak.

    “Is there really a need for a straight answer when it comes to booties? They are what they are. It is as simple as that.” And if for some reason there was something that made it different, well the creature was pretty sure other things outside of words would clue the world onto it. Either way, the wolf had been amused by the topic more so than the statement itself. After all it wasn’t every day a conversations about asses came up. “Not necessarily. Some races aren’t really animals at all and may have scales in some places or perhaps just a really dry behind. Though why someone would be interested in either of those would be beyond us,” the creature would reply back as it gave a slight shrug with it shoulders as it kept walking for a bit longer.

    “We don’t attack for no reason, so you have no concern there.” Honestly, despite being what it was, the wolf was non-hostile unless provoked and so far the man had done nothing to cause the creature to want to attack. It was honestly a waste of energy to attack without reason, so the wolf wouldn’t. In any case, the pair would walk a bit longer until they came upon a camp where some wood had been set up for a fire. Walking to one side of, the pile the wolf would pause to drop the bird on the ground as it looked at the other.

    “Maybe. Or maybe your way of talking is simply more entertaining than the solitude we typically prefer,” the creature would say before shifting from wolf form to its male humanoid form. Looking to the wood the male would close its eyes a bit as a strange symbol drifted from his back and drifted towards the wood. As soon as the symbol touched the wood, it would catch aflame tearing up the symbol in the process before settling into a gentle crackle.

    Sitting down before the bird, the creature would get to work on plucking the feathers off speaking as he did so. “We have simply spoken like this from birth, but perhaps it is suiting considering we are neither male nor female. Our form can be either we wish it to be,” the creature would state the strange twin voices still there at the time.

    ...

    “Though, if an answer’s pointless, why even let a question happen to begin with?” It’s not like there was actual protesting happening when he started questioning it, was there? So why say it was unnecessary now of all times? Eh, oh well. Balthazar would shake his head slightly. “Well I can hardly tell when the only clue given are the scales. Might as well be careful and not accidentally imply I’m into fish and snakes.” Hell, he was sure some people would take it that way, whether accidentally or on purpose to then attempt making fun of him.

    That said, he would remain quiet for the rest of the walk until they’ve stopped. He’d raise an eyebrow with a half-hearted laugh. “That’s a pretty bold claim seeing as you stopped and invited me along pretty quickly. Doesn’t sound like a lot of time to assess my way of talking before making the decision.” That was some quick choice, considering that people were all kinds of unpredictable, so you technically knew jack squat about how entertaining they in fact were or were not unless you’ve spent a good deal of time with them first.

    Remaining standing, he’d stick his hands into his pocket with a casual whistle. “Err, I fail to see the point there. I’m pretty sure ‘I’ doesn’t imply any kind of gender either, making that reason rather moot.”, he’d shrug his shoulders a bit. “I’m just saying though. Cause you know, if there’s ultimately only one of you in the end, talking like that kinda makes you sound mental by base. You hardly pass for a group of people or something.” To him it just sounded kinda stupid, to be honest. What reason was there to use a completely unnecessary and pointless way of speaking? Especially if it only made you sound super weird, and nothing else, really.

    "We never said the matter was pointless. We simply asked what need was there for a straight answer. If it was pointless we would’ve said something different.” It wasn’t a non straight forward answer still an answer? The creature wonder just how the other had come to it being pointless from that. “We can see how that assumption can be made,” the creature would say with a snort. Scales alone could imply many things, but unlike others this one seemed to think more than others when it came to responding back. An interesting trait provided it didn’t get out of hand or he over thought everything.

    In any case, back at the camp the man in white would look up at the other the black eyes watching the other for a moment before a smirk came upon those lips. “It is true we invited rather quickly and it is also true we cannot tell just how entertaining you will be based upon speech, yet our gut told us to give you whirl. So we did and so far we are not disappointed.” No one knew anything about anyone or thing until they interacted with it more than for just a few seconds, so why not take the plunge if you found something already interesting?

    Speaking of interest, it would seem that the creature’s way of speaking had become a subject to be discussed. As it continued to clean the bird making sure all feathers were gone before it worked on the messier job of pulling the parts not needed off the bird, the creature’s white ears would twitch at the whistle before the creature would stay quiet for a bit as its eyebrows furrowed in thought.

    “We do not see why addressing ourselves as such makes us mental. Yes there is only one of us and it is true we could use “I”, but why? What makes “I” better than “we” outside of saving one’s self from raised eyebrows and questions?” It didn’t quite get the point of this. Typically once something is explained people let it be so….what was the deal here?

    Word Count: 336


    “Is it much of an answer if it answers nothing? Kinda defies its own name, you know? It comes across as pointless since it’d be the same in case you stayed silent and said nothing. Meaning the answer didn’t amount to anything in the end.”, he’d shrug somewhat nonchalantly. Though despite the subject of talk, he didn’t appear to be annoyed or anything. It was as if he was simply in a ‘just saying’ mode or something of the sort. “I mean, I guess it has some meaning if you like the sound of your own voice, but otherwise it’s empty words in a way, isn’t it?” It sure didn’t make him any wiser, he was certain of that much.

    “So then, it was a whim?” That’s basically what he was trying to get at after all. There was no ‘you’re certainly interesting’ claim to be had when the choice was based upon having some gut feeling or whatever. Though to be honest, he mostly didn’t find himself having anything better to say there. He really wasn’t sure where this was going.

    Speaking of which, he would shake his head humorously at the pronoun issue. “Simple. Cause it sounds like you think there’s more of you or whatever. Which, unless you have multiple personality issues or something like that, doesn’t quite look normal. Besides, what makes ‘we’ better than ‘I’ then? For it mostly seems like it just has downsides. There’s a reason why it’s meant to refer to different numbers of people, you know? Communication would be confusing as all hell if everyone just used whatever they felt like.” That, and in his personal opinion, it sounded a little dumb. Though that was just him. But really, was there any pro to using a pronoun where it wasn’t normally meant to be used? It made you come across as weird, and a bit of a special snowflake. There’s plenty other ways to make yourself seem more unique which don’t mess with the meaning of words.

    “We suppose that is because of the way you translate it. To another there may have been meaning in it after all, even if the answer was not direct.” The wolf would respond before pausing and looking at the bird making sure all feathers were off before it began to work on cleaning it and breaking it up apart so it could cook it. “Would you have preferred silence over a response? And we don’t think the meaning is lost there. It just changes depending on who listens to it. For you it is pointless. To me it is a valid answer.” And so it was whether or not it made one wiser or not. An answer was an answer, it was as simple as that.

    “A whim?” the creature would hum at that one as it was quiet for a moment before nodding. “We suppose so.” The creature supposed it could be called a whim considering it did not know the other or if he was really as entertaining as he seemed. For all it knew this could turn out to be an error on its part and he and it would not be able to get along at all. Though the creature hoped it didn’t come to that.

    Though what it would come down to is odd conversations over how one choose to address themselves. “When someone is neither female nor male, but can be both. ‘We’ encompasses both the male and female. There is technically two even if the person is the same in either form. Just like ‘they’ or ‘it’ would fit too. ‘We’ is neither worse or greater than ‘I’. They both hold the same weight in the end. As for mental disorders we have none to be concerned about,” the wolf would say as it picked up some sharpened sticks and began to place the meat on them before hanging them over the flames to cook.
