"Shhh Wolfie.." Kurt muttered putting his hand out to quiet the tamed wolf as he tried to aim his ender pearl at the right angle to get out of the missile silo of incompletion death and destructioness. He still wasn't competent with them but he was getting there, it still took abit of concentration to stop himself getting hurt everything he wanted back out the giant hole. He pulled his arm back ready to throw as Wolfie butted his leg whining causing him to drop the pearl out of fright and teleport the measly half a step, he winced, it may not have been far but it still hurt.. "what is wrong Wolfie" sighing as he got down on one knee and dropped the paper wrapped parcel he was carrying by some spider silk he petted the wolfs head it's 3d glasses tipping previously off the end of his nose as he wined again laying on the ground glancing at kurt with giant brown eyes...
He chuckled at the wolfs performance and handed him one of the few bones he kept its him as treats for his prized pet. Wolfie sniffed the treat next to him and looked back at Kurt blatantly ignoring it
Well that's strange.. Wolfie loves his bones normaly.. He tilted his head to look at the wolf, he seemed healthy enough.. Maybe he just didn't want to come?
"Stay hear Wolfie" he put a hand on the wolfs head where he lay "I won't be long, I will be back soon okay?" He turned as the wolf whined as he walked "I gotta take this to the lens before Nighttime.. " he sighed torn between staying with Wolfie or going to hand his present over... I will be less than a day.. He will be fine there's food and water and his bed.
Kurt took a last look at the wolfs puppy eyed face and gave him a pet "promise" he picked up the package as he rose and turned with one well aimed pearl he disappear and the wolf gave out a howl. Kurt winced at the sound. It broke his heart to leave his companion but if Wolfie was sick.. Well he didn't want to risk it getting worse or tiring him out too much..
He began walking in the general direction of spawn from there he could easily reach the nether hub and get to Zisteau's monster of a project.. WOOF!
He jumped and landed on the ground clutching the parcel "Wolfie, I told you to stay!" He gasped holding his heart that was thumping from the fright. The wolf wined and paced back and forth sniffing the air, Kurt looked up to the sky, the sun was out there wasn't a cloud in the sky.. What was wrong with the wolf, he didn't act this strange normally. He sighed I will keep a close eye on him I suppose he started walking with Wolfie following cautiously behind him
They walked for a short while until he reached the top of the hill by the river of spawn he could make out Baj's mansion with day/night sensor it was pouring water behind the stairs and looks amazing, his observatory was sitting on the outskirts, still missing the telescope I will have to sort that someday as he walked the short distance into spawn he saw Bdoubleo
"Hey!" He shouted "hells blazes if its not the far lander back again!" He chuckled as He managed a smile at the bad joke
"Indeed.." He mumbled quietly looking at his feet, he still wasn't comfortable with talking to others, it was easier now at the very least but he was still too comfortable with his hermitage at the missile silo..
"Where you off too? " he asked sensing the Kurt's embarrassment and decided to change the conversation "is it someone's birthday..?" He bit his lip.. "If it is I forgot.."
Kurt chuckled lightly "No.. no ones birthday I know of anyway.. It's for Z.. Zisteau.... " he saw the young man crack a smile "ermm... It's s subs... He just got 100k..." He flushed pink stammering and trying to explain the situation as Bdoubleo chuckled
"We'll I will let you go. Don't want Zisteau getting angry at me for using up your time" he laughed patted Kurt on arm and began walking towards Baj's farms
"I.. Ugh.. Thanks....?" He mumbled looking at Wolfie who gave a small whine "why cant i just talk to people normally.." he sighed and set off to the nether hub, as he arrived he walked directly to Zisteau's long track. he pulled out his cart and jumped in as Wolfie sat on his lap and put his head n the side of the cart. he pressed the button on the side and held on as they sped off down the long track.
One last swing of the diamond Pickaxe.. 4 diamonds? I will take that he smiled collecting them all from the now obsidian lava pit and stored them away, he had been running low on resources, the beacons used a lot more iron than he had calculated, he had traveled close to spawn, near Bdubs new hill bace that was close by to Kurt's missile silo.. maybe he would pay a visit afterwords.. he had to mine some more iron he would take diamond if he could find it though.. He cracked his neck after all the time digging it made him stiff.. He checked the diamonds and counted his iron. Deciding that he had collected enough for at least another beacon he grabbed his pick and attached it to the leather strap he had invented so it would sit on his back. He began to climb out of the cave, slowly he got backtracked by a small side passage he had missed but eventually found his way out.
He grunted as he pulled itself out of the cave and lay on the grass exhausted. Kurt's home... Well incomplete home was looking more promising now, they hadn't seen each other since he had dinner with Kurt.. He had been so busy with the wasteland village and his lens was coming along he had struggled to put in time to see him. He swallowed at the lump of guilt in his throat..
Kurt was too forgiving, any plans they made to see each other had been canceled abruptly but every time he had just smiled and told him it was ok.. He didn't mind.. It would happened to anyone.. He sat up in the grass as he heard footsteps "Kurt?" He shouted... Why would it be kurt. He is still quite far away.. Think Zisteau for god sake..
"Z?" Someone shouted from the forest. He got up from the ground curious to who would be out so far, he dusted off his hoodie and walked towards the trees
"Bdubs?" He called as he saw the jeans and white top flash through the trees only for it to reappear in a few seconds "hey. What are you doing all the way out hear?"
The American chuckled "lookin' for a dress of course.. For Genny" he winked "nah I'm setting up for my hill base, next to kurt.." He ran his fingers thought his hair ruffling it "though Kurt's not about, he was on his way over to see you.."
Zisteaus face fell.. "Oh damn..." He scratched his cheek as he thought.. Bdoubleo looked puzzled "I had said I would be at the lens today, but I needed resources so I went caving... Must've been hear longer than thought" he looked up at the sky to see the suns position
"Well I Only passed him a few minutes ago.. you might catch him he looked like he was heading to the nether hub, Wolfie was there too but he was acting weird..." He explained quickly as the sky darkened and Zisteau's face dropped even more..
"Y'know why he was acting weird...? " Zisteau said slowly as he started to walk in the direction of spawn looking at the sky becoming darker. "Wolves hate storms.. There's one brewing" he continues as Bdubs followed him though he forest. Their pace speeding up so does kurt... He turned "look I've got to hurry, thank you!" He turned and ran as the rain started to fall on them mentally beating himself over being so stupid to not check the time.. Had he not payed attention to what he had said back then?
"You know.. I can never sleep through storms... Never " chuckled Kurt as they ate dinner, they had both had a few drinks.. So the conversation had been flowing freely, Kurt had relaxed enough to show his truer colours and Zisteau had ony been able to sit back and admire him
"But sleeping clears the rain" Zisteau replied taking a sip of his whiskey "without sleeping your just torture yourself.."
Kurt nodded.. "Its stupid... but I have a fear.. If I sleep.. I might wake up and everything is gone.. Lightning, wind the rain.. They can all destroy everything.. And the thunder.. " he shuddered "it's just too loud.. It distracts me... Wolfie isn't a fan either" he smiled at the wolf who had been sitting next to him the whole meal his face lying on Kurts lap preying on the small tidbits Zisteau and Kurt had fed him of the steak or that had fell from there forks during conversation.
He was so stupid.. Poor kurt.. He probably hadn't noticed, the past few days the weather had been perfect.. Cloudless he probablydidn't realise that it meant it would be brewing for a huge storm! And wolfs would easily sense big ones.. Maybe not small ones.. So the chance was he had o idea this was why Wolfie was acting this way... Oh god.. He was warning you Kurt.. I should have told you that night..
He was panting as he ran thought the spawn village the stick in his chest was painful but he ignored it determined to get to Kurt before thunder could show its presence..
"Why is everything getting dark...?" He asked.. He knew no one would reply but he was so used to talking to the wolf he didn't ever notice his blank conversations with himself..
Wolfie whined. He was getting more agitated now. His tail was between his legs and he paced back and forward as Kurt tried to get his bearings, these trees made life difficult and he had not been to the lens in quite a long time..
Rain slowly started to pour down lightly at first but quickly becoming a downpour. He quickly made the decision to go the way he thought was right.. He ran as Wolfie followed barking at Kurt who was becoming more scared for his pet as well as himself he bolted through the tres his long brown coat flapping wildly as the wind began to pick up.. Oh please don't be.. He looked wildly at the sky and is eyes grew in size as he saw the light flash along the sky
A large rumble graced the sky as he bent down to hold the wolf who now was lying on the ground covering his ears at the sound. he bent his face into the wolfs wet fur... "oh god,, I'm sorry Wolfie " he closed his eyes "this was why you where acting strange.." I'm sorry" he jumped slightly as another grumble filled the air it felt like everything was vibrating.. He and the wolf gave a small yelp as they seen light flash by there closed eyes opening them to a few fires very close..
We aren't safe hear.. Oh god... Oh god.. What do I do.. He looked around he had no idea where he was.. He was panicking and Wolfie could sense it making him more agitated. Kurt grabbed the wolfs collar and ran in the direction he thought was right he was completely soaked to the skin and the storm was picking up, the wind blew down a tree in front of them forcing kurt to change there course the young wolf yelping with fear as Kurt looked wildly surely we would be hear.. Where is it! Oh no.. Where is it Zisteau... He ran to a cliff face and ran into a small cavern he found it was dark.. He wouldn't find his way in this weather.. Oh why couldn't he have listened...he hugged Wolfie in the cave as the wolf curled up and put his head on Kurt's lap whining softly trying to dig his head deeper into the small warm ball Kurt had become as he put his heading his hands and sniffed as tears fell down his face as he murmured a small tune to himself and Wolfie trying to wish away the storm...
Zisteau tumbled out the portal to his bace he looked around and cried out in frustration as he heard thunder and saw a lighting bolt hit a nearby tree he looked around., surely Kurt had made it to the lens? He ran down the small path, it was somewhat hidden now thanks to his love of ender pearls but it was hopefully noticeable to Kurt. He thundered down the path dodging trees and wincing as small branched whipped at him in the wind, it was getting worse.. A few trees had been moved or fell in the wind. He frantically called out "KURT!" "WOLFIE!?" He shouted at the top of his lungs "WHERE ARE YOU???" He felt his voice break with the effort of shouting and running he coughed as he ran into his temporary house looking for signs of someone recently being there. Anything.. Even a sound...he ran around looking... listening..
He looked out to the trees around is bace.. Kurt could be anywhere out there...
They where lying on the modern sofa in his observatory upstairs looking up at the gap at the stars, Wolfie was sleeping quietly (full from the steak and his own food) on his small bed in the cornor of the room ears twitching at there voices..
Kurt had asked Beef to help to make a few pieces of furniture to fit out the abandoned observatory... Or Beef had offered knowing the man would rather shoot his own foot than ask something of someone..
"Well just remember if your ever In a lightning storm.. Stay away from trees, your best bet is a stone house or even a cave.." He explained quietly to Kurt who's head was lying on his chest on the L shaped sofa. "Trees and wood could burn or just get destroyed easily.."
"Right.. So stones my friend" he chuckled "the silo is good then"
"Yeah" he laughed quietly running his hand over Kurt's newly buzzed hair he had complimented that night.. he had to admit it was nice to touch... "not so much doom and destruction when it is a good shelter for a storm now huh?" He smiled as Kurt blushed and smiled up to the sky shyly
"A cave..." He looked around his bace was built into a cliff,, wasn't there a few holes and nooks he had found when he explored around hear? He set off running again to the edge of his cliff that was less forested... He had a sure feelings. If anything. Kurt might have remembered that.. Especially if Wolfie was a scared as he was.. He winced as a tree branch tore his pitman hoodie and cut his arm he hadn't been looking where he was going.. He ignored the cut and kept running quickly peaking his head in each cave,nook, cranny.. Anything what would fit a man and his wolf in it... He froze.. Was that Wolfie..?
"KURT!!! WHERE ARE YOU?" He shouted running towards the sound of the wolf who obviously heard him and began to howl. He ran towards the sound and threw himself into the small cave nearly whacking his head off the low ceiling
"Kurt!?" He grabbed his shoulders shaking him as Wolfie gave a small yelp of recognition for Zisteau but began to cower as the thunder filled the cave again Kurt looked at Zisteau hardly recognising him, he was soaking, red and his face had a few bruises from the trees blowing so violently "z...Zisteau.." He blinked a few times, his eyes hurt.. They where Swollen and red.. Zisteau gave him a pitying look and put his arms around him "your a Ideot kurt.." He mumbled as Kurt grabbed his top from fright as the wind howled past he urged his head not Zisteau who smiled
"I'm sorry.." Kurt mumbled quietly as he felt his eyes well up "I should have remembered what you said about where your house is.. Is forgot.. I got lost.. We couldn't find it" he spurted out quickly as Zisteau pulled away and looked at him Kurt ran his hand down his arm feeling the tear in his hoodie as Zisteau winced
"Zisteau.. Oh god what happened.."
"it's fine kurt.. Your safe.. Wolfie is safe.. That's all that matters" he said quietly.. to me... It matters to me more than you know...
He smiled as he got up and held out his good arms hand to Kurt "lets go to the temporary house.. The lens won't be your favourite place in this storm." He smiled as he led the walker by the hand to his painting clad house. Wolfie staying close to his master both cringing at the sounds of the storm.
"Why did you even come out hear Kurt?" Zisteau asked as he changed into dry clothes in the joined room to his bedroom "you've not been hear many times.. It's easy to get lost"
Kurt was silent as he entered the room wearing his flannel pyjamas that he kept at Zisteau's since the trial.. Zisteau had turned to do some paperwork In The silence not wanting to press him. Only to have a large wrapped box dropped on his desk
"I woul.. I .. Wanted to give you this..." He replied quickly turning redder by the second as Zisteau opened the present carefully breaking the strong easily with his hands
"A cake.. What's this for Kurt?" He turned smiling to the man who was scratching his head nervously.. "Erm.. Just.. Y'know.. Getting all the subs and such... I just thought it would be nice" he spoke quick trying to get it all out only to end up in a jumbled mess of words andZisteau walked over and sat on the bed with him "it's great" he smiled watching his friend give a small grin of achievement only to jump off the bed and land hard on the wooden floor as a lightning bolt struck across the windows of the house Wolfie tore into the room at the flash also nearly running into a door as kurt saved him, he couldn't get grip on the floor either...
Zisteau clambered over the end of the bed and raised his eyebrows to Kurt "you ok?" He chuckled
"Erm.. Yeah." He rubbed his back getting up.. "Still don't, like storms though.." He sighed As he climbed into the bed and curled up under the blankets as Zisteau lay on top and put his arms around him
"They can't hurt you hear you know..." He murmured kissing the top of his head as he squeezed him lightly as Kurt chuckled pressing his head to Zisteau's chest
"I know.." He sighed closing his eyes suddenly exhausted feeling Wolfie clamber up on the bed to sleep at Kurt and Zisteau's feet "if only.." He trailed off quietly feeling his tiredness winning the battle to stay awake this time not flinching when the thunder swept the sky and the rain pelted the windows..
Zisteau stayed up with his arms round kurt until he was sure he was asleep.. "Next time kurt" he muttered quietly as he moved to lay on his pillows" I will be there for the storm..." He closed his eyes breathing in His scent smiling at the situation with his arm around Kurt "i will..." he sighed as he fell asleep to the storm also.
