Stone studied her, nodding at her words. "It does Nega, it means a lot to me."

"I hope your right, I hope its because she cares..." He trailed off as she started to speak again.

He took a deep breath, slowly exhaling through his nose. "I hope she is decent Nega, I hope she stayed with that loyalty and hasn't been punished one to many times to push her over the edge and say 'screw it lets see the money this time'. But cause it has happened before Nega, I just pray to Aries your right. Trust your instints, but I just don't have anything to trust in anyone anymore... unless its you ... " he looked away.

Nega couldn't resist. She told herself too many time that he had a story, and that it wasn't any of her bussiness. But he was her friend dammit.

She scooted closer to him, just enough so their arms were touching. She wanted to know the contact was for him, and she wouldn't push anthing on him that he didn't want.

"You said anymore," she noted. "As in you trusted someone before. Whoever it was must have hurt you bad. Who was it?"

Stone sighed. "She was a mouse, I trained her... like I trained you and Sleet... she was just a young thing herself, 15 and damn.. a body like B.B's." He frowned closing his eyes. "I should have known better, I was too young and stupid and.." He sighed hanging his head. "I was foolish, so was she." he swallowed hard. "I broke her heart, she left me for dead, I shot her.. but couldn't kill her."

Nega looked at him, feelign tears brimming in her eyes.

"Oh Stone," she whipsered. "Thats awful. All those times I talked about my past, my first lover leaving me becuase he wanted something different and all of my concerns about Sleet. I never even thought that you... I'm so sorry." She hugged him tightly. "I'm so sorry for you."

He opened his eyes staring at Nega. "I don't need a hug." shaking himself fromhis reprive. "I don't need sympathy or being felt sorry for. I delt myself my own blow. It's over with." He gave her a quick hug letting go just as fast as it came. "your past isn't the same Nega, you didn't have the restrictions I did and broke rules like I had. He left your flat on your face with your heart at your feet, but.." He smiled at her. "You have Sleet don't you?"

She looked up at the stars, the smile refusing to leave her.

"It is magical isn't it?" she said. "And terrifying at the same time. Like a gamble seceonds before you find out the result. In an instant all you're dreams could come true, or you could be left with nothing. It takes real courage to do it, even the first time. Yes I have Sleet, and you too to be there for me when I need it. So I guess it just proves that second chances are worth taking."

"For some," Stone shook his head unable to comphrend her. "For me, I'd rather take a bullet." He smirked at her. "I'd take two if it'd mean keeping a partner like you alive."

"You'd rather die than fall risk falling in love with someone?" she asked. "Yes, I understand. For a long time I was the same way. But if you don't mind me saying so, love isn't always romantic. How much you care for someone, I've found it's almost always parallel to how much you're willing to give up for them. I know I'd give up just about anything for Sleet, and I'd do the same thing for you. We aren't lovers, and don't get me wrong, but I hope we never are, 'cuase I'm comfortable with you the way things are. But I still love you, not in the same way but the same amount." She smirked. "Even if you act like an old man who's stubborn and mean-spirited just to make sure no one likes you," she teased and poked his ribs.

"I don't act like an old man." he swatted her fingers away from his ribs. "And I don't act mean-spiritted and stubbron." he chuckled. "I am mean-spirtied and Stubborn." Poking her shoulder. "And don't you forget it."

He smiled at her, pulling her into a hug. "Ya know, we can be a lot of things, but lovers ain't gonna happen. I like the one a month breeding runs and I enjoy our time together. Without all that complicated muck between." He let her go. "And be damned if I'm going to let some dumb dog get in the way of my life and your belonging."

"Nah I know you're type," she said and poked him again. "You say you don't care becuase you care so much. And you just proved it by saying you wanted to help me. You're a big sweet furry thing. Like a, uh... Teddy Bear! That's it!"

She burst out laughing, the image burned in her mind.

Stone huffed. "I am NOT a teddy bear! I'ma rat." he shoved her into the dirt. "Remember that." he glared at her, a shadow of a smile on his face. "N' you can keep yer opinions about me to us, missy." he crossed his arms, puffing up his chest. "I don't care about anyone."

Even as Nega hit she sand she couldn't stop laughing. The image was too cute. And it was going to take a long time before she stopped calling him Captain Teddy Bear, but only in her own head where no one else could hear.

"Well, in any case," she said when she finally stopped snickering, "I'm glad I get to see this side of you at least. But don't worry, the fact that you have a heart stays between us."

She looked down at her watch, surprised so much time had gone by. She considered making a comment about it flying when you had fun, but Stone looked a little too dangerous at the moment. If she valued her life, she'd never tell Sleet about her sudden thought of the kid's former teacher.

"We should go wake Wolfie and Tony now," she said as she stood and dusted herself off. "They can go for two hours and then I suppose B.B. and Sleet can handle the rest. You should rest anyway. Out of all the people here, I'm putting my trust in you the most."

"good to know." Stone nodded standing. "Yeah.. if you have to wake me.. throw a rock at me or something, don't go touching me." he warned her glancing at the dark sky. "Yer the only one here I trust not to screw things up too." He muttered to her. "Best wake up your friends." he said heading inside the cave.

Nega went over to Wolfie, shaking him awake with a smile.

"Time to get to work Big Brother."

I raise my paw and shake Tony awake, we both stand and head to the cave entrance.

Wolfie: Okay, you two get some sleep, we'll take it from here.

Tony and I now stood at the entrance of the cave, there was going to be no one getting into this cave without a fight.

Stone waited till the wolves were good and gone. He didn't if they both weren't or not. they were dogs and it was the same catagory. Finding a spot near the very back away from everyone, he curled up against the wall, hugging his weapons close. His ears perked for the slightest sounds coming towards him. His body staying alert. while his brain powered down for a rough night ofsleep.

Nega nodded stretched a little so her back popped and slipped in next to Sleet, careful not to wake him. He was going to need his rest as much as much as anyone, maybe more.

Sleet gave a small moan feeling the warmth next to him. He curled closer to it, his claws clutching at it, cuddling it. In his mind the dreamstate Nega and B.B were doing things together he didn't even know where possible. His own body responding to it all.

An hour into our stint on guard and I hear a a snap, and Tony and I instantly go into alert mode.

I make a paw gesture to tell Tony to keep a watchful eye out, as I go and check out the noise.

Nega murmured in her sleep, a warm pressence close to her, drawing her out. With a small smile, she scooted close into it.

"...mmm..." she moaed softly and cuddled with Sleet in her sleep.

Tony shakes Sleet gently and whispers: Hey Sleet, it's time for you and B.B to go on guard bro.

B.B. yawned as she looked up seeing a large canine.

"Mm?" she asked. "Ah, time for watch? Okie-dokie."

She moved over to the entrance to wait for dawn.

Wolfie now headed into the cave and stood in front of Stone

Wolfie: Ahem, excuse me Stone, but I thought that you should know, about an hour ago I heard something outside. I made a tour of the exterior and could find nothing, all is well.

Stone's ears twitched, his wiskers twitched, he curled his lips back in a silenty snarl. Bringing his rifle's butt up, before fully waking. The gun jarred as it hit something.

~~~~~~~~

Sleet yawned awake. "Already?" He kissed Nega softly, pulling away from her. Adjusting his pants he smirked recalling bits of his dream.

Once out side the crisp night air made him shiver.

"Hey!" B.B. called from the front. "Whatever's going on, try no to make too much noise. You're making it ard to listen for anything!"

She giggled over at Sleet.

"How do you deal wih that guy?"

Eyes flashing open, Stone growled lashing out at the creature before him. His voice strained. "GET THE FUCK AWAY FROM YOU NUT!" he roared realizing it was a freindly almost too late, his knife was in his other hand poised to strike.

Sleet shrugged. "I don't wake him up, he almost killed Nega once when she did." scanning the landscape. "I hope we see nothing."
