Aranea was struggling to live inside the castle unacknowledged alongside Ulric. Allegro had asked for her own safety to wait until summer came around to move back to Abaven, hoping for better weather changes. It wasn't guaranteed, but she knew once the false spring was up she had to go to Abaven. For her children, but to find her way away from Ulric because she couldn't take the heartbreak anymore.

She was feeling the same way she had nearly a year ago. Inside Lirim she avoided the pack like a plague. She didn't want to face Torin, and now she was doing the same to Ulric. It hurt to much too be in passing with him, to not do what she wanted anymore. And it was hard to resist the urge to go to his room at night. Instead she laid sleepless at her beach side window.

She found her paws over a shallow land bridge north of the island. She hoped she could find herbs to bring back to The Hallows, but she just wanted to stay out of the pack if anything now. She walked, almost sulking, through the cold, damp sands and moved into the thicker vegetation of the forest. The trees were barren and vines had turned brown and died. It wasn't that beautiful of a sight. Not that she was paying attention to begin with.

Time had been spent tracking his mother. He would have followed her to the ends of the earth. Why, you ask? To prove a point. To rub it in her face just how horrible of a mother she'd been. How wrong she'd been about his father. How wrong she was about everything. The man held a grudge and he held it hard against the wolf who bore him. His sister? He didn't care much about her existence. It was good to know that she was still alive in some way, but he didn't hold a hatred for her as he did for Resin. Iolaire had raised herself in the world as well. He couldn't be upset with her over that.

Now that the bitch was found, Oxx could take his time. He could slowly pick away at her until her legs were gone and she fell. He'd located her castle, observed the wolves that existed around her. Now all he had to do was rest and wait for moments of weakness. He would bring her empire to its knees.

The last remnants of daylight were dwindling away. Fitting, considering his thoughts. The giant man lay atop what had once been a car. Nature and the elements had reclaimed a good portion of it. Plants grew through the wheels. A tree grew out one window. The top of the object was dark and the sun had warmed it thoroughly. Now that the sunlight would be gone for the day, he would most likely head back to Isidora. Unless....

Pawsteps roused the brutes attention. Dainty little steps. Rolling onto his stomach, dark grey eyes watched as a pale lady moved across the frozen sands. There was a despondent look upon her pallid features. Ah... well... when life presented such an opportunity, who was he to turn it down?

Rolling to wide, white paws, the slate colored dire moved slowly towards her like a shark cutting through water. Deep, smooth tones crossed the distance between them as Oxx stepped into view. "Beautiful lady... there's no reason to look so glum. What could earthly children to do bring a frown to such a celestial being?" Lips curled upwards in a smile, but he didn't flash his teeth at her. Not yet.

The presence of the brute caught her off guard, and his demeanor made her feel unwelcoming. Sure she could have appreciated the compliments, but Aranea was already put off by monstrous men that were strangers. Even in her lonely emotions. What he said certainly didn’t help the feeling.

She took a gentle step back from him, as if to turn away and go back to The Hallows. It was getting dark after all. Maybe she should have been more careful, there were packs of saber cats wandering Auster.

"I was just out looking for resources." She spoke quietly, fear was prominent in her tone and stature, "I should be heading back home now. It’s late." She didn’t want to turn her back on the male, and she almost found herself frozen before turning away. Unfortunately The Hallows wasn’t right around the corner, but that seemed to be her own fault after all.

Her initial reaction made him giggle inside. He could taste her fear on the air. Ah, but that wasn't all that he wanted. There was so much more in this tiny little buffet of woman to be consumed. Oxx was intent on having it all. Every little morsel of the delicacy that was the pallid fae.

Soft lyrics informed him that she was heading back home. He could taste the lie just as clearly as the fear. Oxx sighed dramatically and lay on his stomach in the snowy sand to get on her level and appear less intimidating. "Forgive me, lady. I am not from this place and our ways appear to be incredibly different." He gave his head a shake, a frown on his face. "I've been on my own for so long and seeing your beauty reminded me of just how lonely I' am."

Grey eyes pleaded with the woman. If anything, Oxx was a superb actor. He'd had many years to acquire different masks, mannerisms and personas. "Won't you stay and talk a while? I promise to be on my best behavior." He nodded, tucking his paws beneath him like a cat, his gaze hopeful.

She found herself back on the beach with Noir, in a vulnerable situation and she didn't have the mental strength to pull herself out of it. Still, she felt like she had helped the blue man with what bit of loneliness he had. And seeing that she was almost in the same situation she was back then, she couldn't help but wonder if this man could offer her the same.

Her guard wasn't completely let down, but she found herself in a more calm set of mind. She wouldn't grow closer to the male, but her body was more at ease and it was obvious. His statement of lonely had caught her attention. As if she was feeling the same way, because she was. "I guess that'll be okay." Her voice wasn't as relaxed as her body became, but she finally took a couple steps forward before taking a seat on the sands. She couldn't muster up a smile for him, she could barely look at him. Maybe it was the way she was feeling that he could half fill the hole inside her. But she knew nothing could replace Ulric. She didn't feel the same with Allegro. And now she was wondering if she could ever feel for Allegro or anyone else the way she did for Ulric.

His acting skills paid off and the fae agreed to sit and stay. Perhaps he was so convincing because he genuinely wanted her to stay. Perhaps it was because he had so much damn practice at being charming. Just another mask. Just another woman. Just another game to play.

Oxx could see the sadness in her features and a soft frown pulled at his lips. A practiced frown. "My name is Luke," he lied effortlessly, giving the woman a kind, good ol' boy name rather than his own powerful moniker. It was difficult for one of his stature to appear non-threatening, but he tried.

"You look so sad, lady," he purred, concern etching his handsome face. "What troubles you so? My ears are open to you, if you're willing." Would she share her woes or would she continue to be tight-lipped? It was her move.

She wouldn't mimic any of his emotions, instead staying on a flat, stale plain. Aranea had hid her feelings, cried her feelings, and worked through her feelings. She wasnt feeling any type of way in front of this stranger. "Aranea," She greeted gently back, but still found it hard to keep eye contact with him. Whether it was her dwindling fear of the man, of her sad feelings wouldn't be known for sure.

He offered her perhaps a shoulder to cry on, but she wasn't feeling so comfortable or confident to do so. Her eyes still wandered around the ground but she made herself comfortable, laying before him. "I uh-" Her voice trailed into nothing as she was clearly struggling with what she wanted to share, or maybe that she didn't want to talk about it at all. "I have to leave my pack to be with my family. But I don't want to do that. I'm not ready." There wasn't anyone else inside The Hallows she would feel okay with sharing even just that little bit of information with. Though usually now a days it was her thinking she would sour everyone else's mood if she shared her sad feelings. Maybe a few years ago, and maybe even a little now, she would have felt like others would look down and gossip about her with what she had done.

The behemoth of a brute rested his chin on the snowy sand, dark grey eyes locked on the woman before him as she first gave her name, then opened up a bit about what was troubling her. It seemed that she had a family far, far away and she didn't want to go to them. Oxx gave a little shrug. "Then don't. You are the keeper of your own happiness, Aranea." He tasted her name on his tongue and quite liked the flavor. It was different. Exotic almost. Pleasing.

"You're far too lovely to be riddled with sadness," he admitted aloud. "What can we do to lift your spirits?" One brow arched and his tail swished through the snow behind him. "Would you like to play a game, perhaps?" There was a playful gleam in his eye. If he could get her laughing, he reasoned in his mind, then he would get what he wanted from her.
