Icy, azure eyes snapped open eagerly adjusting to the darkness within the den. Lately, the small grey pup had found sleeping to be wasting more of his time than benefiting him. Belial wanted to explore and venture from this safe haven, to see more of their pack’s territory. Hyperion and Lily wanted the best for their pups, but their offspring were impatient and required more freedom then they were given. His gaze danced between the entrance to their den and his sleeping family. Gears began to turn within his youthful mind, ‘The time is now.’ Keeping his belly pressed close to the ground, Belial crawled carefully away from the others.
Once he had created a gap of a few feet, the pup rose to a standing position. He was careful to keep his eager tail from wagging, doing his best to be as still as possible. The last thing that he needed was to awaken Father or Mother, it would certainly be his hide if they even suspected him of sneaking out. Belial was not looking to tarnish the golden reputation he had acquired after the Arwen situation. He loved his sister, but she was mighty clumsy. The ashy colored pup refused to acknowledge that he too was equally uncoordinated.
The moonlight glimmered through the water that perpetually poured from the falls. Belial had learned the dangers of the water, but also believed that there was a way for him to sneak through it. Arwen’s mistake had proven to be a vital learning experience for all of the pups. If he were to plummet into the water this night, it would surely crush all of his plans and his flawless reputation with his parents. His approach to the edge of the den was cautious, the pup moved his paws as delicately as he was capable.
The scents of the water and the world outside entranced Belial’s senses, luring him to try and poke his head around the edge of the water. His goal was to keep as dry as possible, but he still ended up with half of his face getting drenched. He scrunched his nose and retracted his head his head quickly, displeased with the consequences of his actions. Quickly, the brute cast a glance in the direction of his family hoping that they were still asleep.
