The moon lingered high in the sky and the stars shone bright, bathing the gently swaying long grass of the plains in an almost silvery sheen. It was bed time, or at least it ought to have been, but Ophie wasn't ready to sleep just yet. She didn't stray far from the den, close enough that she should skitter back at the first sign of trouble, but lingered in the moonlight all the same. Her home was such a busy place, full of very busy people but at night it just sort of felt quiet, in a nice way. Not for long though. Peace didn't really to be an option around here, which was fine. More than fine really! Ophie squatted down low at the sound of rustling grass and wriggled her rear, ready to pounce on whoever emerged. And oh how their fight would be legendary! A tale told for ages and ages, till her Ma and Da started to get old and grey around the muzzle. The grass shifted again and the paw steps were closer, louder. On instinct she unsheathed her claws and scritched at the dirt, leaving little grooves in their wake. Had she any common sense she would have checked the scent to see who approached but she was riding the high of anticipation, all excitement with little thought. Just Ophie things.

Of course she knew she was supposed to be back in the den by sundown, buuuut there was just so much exploring to be done! She at least made sure that dad's bear companion was following her around so it wasn't like she was alone. But now that it was very, very dark Briar figured that she better start heading back... not because she was scared - no no no, not that at all. The long shadows and the darkness in the tall, thick grasses wasn't spooky in the slightest... At least that's what her puppy bravado told her. She wiggled her way through the grasses on her way back to the den, the bear friend following not too far behind. The grasses were hard for her to see through since she was so much shorter than them, but she was able to follow the path she had made in them on the way through the first time so she at least she knew where she was going. When she finally tumbled out into the clearing near the den, she found herself nose to nose with her sister, and she squeaked with wide eyes when her sibling immediately pounced on her before she could even get her footing and she scowled as she fell to the ground under the monochrome girl's weight. "Hey! No fair!" she complained as she wiggled and tried to push Ophelia off of her. "That's sneaking! No fair!"

Gossamer raced through the grasses, head turned skyward as she looked at the beautiful sky. Stars winkled and sparkled amidst a black velvet sea and she swear she saw one suddenly streak across the sky. Her cyan eyes focused on the stars, just waiting for another one to fall through the sky. Her tail wagged as she bounded through the grass around the den. Technically they were supposed to be at the den not in the den so she sought to just push her luck a little. She was sure her parents would be outside watching the stars streaking across the sky to anyway.

The only thing that pulled her attention from the sky was a sudden squeak from her sisters. Uh oh! Gossamer immediately sprinted toward the sound but without any moonlight to guide her it was hard to see exactly where her siblings were. She heard Briar's voice and immediately wondered if they were play fighting without her. "Hey, I want to play to!" She barreled towards the others and attempted to pounce on Ophelia's back, hoping to wrap her arms around the other girls neck and bite at her scruff.

Lacking the skills and prowess of a proper huntress, Ophie wasn't really sure what to do with her sister once she'd caught her. For a moment she remained where she was, all sprawled out as though she'd fallen from a great height and then it clicked in her mind and Ophie broke out into a big and beaming grin. This wasn't so different from the play fights they'd had within the safety of the den, a lot had changed but not this. With a renewed sense of vigour, Ophie wriggled and squirmed atop Briar, pinning her down and gleefully ignoring her complaints as she attempted to chew on her sister's fawny ears. It felt really fun to be the top pup for once, she wasn't the smallest of the litter-Aris took that honour- but compared to her bigger siblings it was easy to feel...small sometimes. A feeling that would only worsen with age. But in the here and now she was as pleased as a plum, ready to show Briar who was the boss- until yet another big sister barged onto the scene.

Ophie let out breathy ooof as Gossy's weight bared down on her and smushed her into a puppy pancake, still atop the squirming Briar. Even if she wanted to get off of her sister she couldn't, especially not when her sister wrapped her up in a bear bug with a show of teeth to the scruff of her neck for good measure. Ophie grumbled as she kicked out her back leg, flashing a bit of claw to try and rid herself of her sisterly backpack.

"Git off!" Squishing was fun but the same couldn't be said for being the squishee.

Briar continued to wriggle and struggle under her darker colored sister and kept trying to bat her with her paws in an attempt to make her get off - but she wouldn't use her sharp claws since her parents told her it was a big no no to use them on her siblings during their play fights. She was already going to be in trouble for not being back in the den by bed time, she didn't want to be in trouble for that and hurting her sister too. She was just about to try head butting her sister's shoulder too when she felt an added weight get piled on top of the weight that Ophelia had put on her, making her feel even more trapped and squished in the process. It was hard to tell at first what had happened in the dark, but Gossamer's insistence that she wanted to play too made it click.

"Yeah!! Get off!" she insisted in an echo of Ophelia's command, feeling incredibly smothered by the two pups piled on top of her. She tried to reach past Ophie to swat at Gossamer's head in an attempt to help get the monochrome wolf off of them so then maybe she could finally be freed as well, but it turned into more wild flailing from the tan pup since it was hard to reach up far enough to be very effective in her attacks.
