A gentle stretch of her front legs helped pull the last edges of sleep from Kianira's mind. Her back arched as she pulled herself forward, stretching out the rear legs as well. Life had bee so quiet here, a refuge from the life she had her mate had had before coming to the Ela'wadiyi. At times it was slow, days could stretch on to weeks if one felt restless. But the near-constant cycle of family, migrating, and sharing joy filled her heart.
She felt like it was due time for her mate to awaken as well. There were no clan plans for this day, only a day of rest and whatever recreation one wanted. And though for the most part the two older lines were rather laid back, Kianira didn't want to waste the day away completely; no! They had a few hours to enjoy some task before the head of the mid-day sun would drive them back under the shade for a spell.
