Something was amiss, altered and abnormal and playing with reality. The young male didn't know if he was simply imagining the subtle differences or if the air really was ringing with change, and he rose cautiously from where he had been laying, his ears twisting curiously as the male's skull tilted to the side. He couldn't quite place what it was that had him on edge, but the lad began to move across Seron land unsurely, erring on the edge of caution. The silence was snapped by a cry laced with pain, causing the masked wolf to whip his head to the side as a breath expelled from his lips. Tesni. He could only assume that her time had come, and his heathen siblings were to he born today, and so the russet boy set of at a leggy trot towards the dens, forcing himself not to rush in his worry for the woman who could be named his closest friend.
With the mouth of the small cave in sight, Xavier slid closer at a much slower pace, his stare shifting momentarily to his present father before he stuck his head inside the entrance to find his elder sister with the duo-toned woman. "Tesni," he breathed, the word a soft coo of warm air that brushed against her forehead as the boy gave her a gentle lick upon the muzzle. "I'm here." It was the only comfort he could offer, and then the yearling sidled out of the den to flop ungracefully a few paces from the entrance, unwilling to be a nuisance or see the horrors that would be birthed in that cramped room. His pale stare swiveled to fixate on the blank slate of his father's face, no words passed between them. When Tesni's strenuous ordeal was over with, her fairy voice floating into the air, Xavier twisted his skull towards the den, but made no move to rise, no move to draw closer to his new siblings unless he was asked to do so.
