He had been long overdue for a lone-trip about his territory, usually accompanying a scouting or hunting party for the extra muscle and eyes, as well as to give instruction with the less predator-like canines of his tribe. He enjoyed it honestly, but with the recent need to sate the pregnant females and cubs that are of his pack, he almost always ended up giving his ration to even the lower members of his pack; it was small but they all needed their strength. He also knew it was odd in the ways of the normal world, but Gaunt was far from normal, having spent time with the small tribe of humans with his sister, no matter what humans did to them, he always took what he learned from them with great interest.
Making his way back towards the area of the catacombs his paused, the plump rabbit that was clamped in his jaws hanging lifeless from his maw as he pondered if he would be able to actually eat it without some pup coming over to whine at the food until he succumbed to just letting them have it ... he sighed heavily through his mouth and around the carcass, his stomach grumbling in disapproval since he had not actually eaten anything save for a few small rodents or squirrels in the past few days. Even though they were plump with the fall months he had hardly been sated and his energy was waning.
No, this catch was his, and with that thought he veered to the west and through less denser areas of undergrowth and foliage, the trees becoming closer together as he found himself going to a sloping drop off, jumping easily down as he came to the bottom and found the patch of berry bushes he needed to find, a small pine also growing practically in front of it to mark the small looking cave. Just before he got there the moist air that he had noted earlier became evident as it began to rain, droplets hanging off his pelt as he glanced up to the sky that flashed lightning across it. A few moments later the sky rumbled its displeasure before the rain began to fall in heavier sheets, making him quickly find his way inside.
He slipped through the bushed and into the smaller opening, the ceiling arching upwards to house Gaunt even in his human form if he were to stand in it, the semi-circular cave having past evidence of a fire in the middle of it all, a small pile of ash that was strewn about. In the back of the cave was a bundle of a blanket that was thrown over dried wood, prefect for the fires he would use to dry off later. It was odd the habits he was accustomed to, using this invention of man to dry and warm himself in cool weather, although never in front of others from his pack, save for his co-Alphess.
Circling an area in the back corner he circled once before settling himself on the ground, the rabbit dropped between his fore paws as he glanced to the outside, it was not quite dark yet, as the sun was just going down, but the overcast sky made it seem later than it was. The wind snuck past the vegetation, spotted with tart berries he might add that were delicious, and brought him a peculiar scent. Rogue for sure, but singular and ... well it was a bit different than he was used to. None-the-matter he dipped his head to tear into the flesh of the rabbit before pulling chunks of meat from it to chew and swallow. Oh how amazing it was to finally get a meal of his own.
