A few days passed since Banshee and Verity were accepted into Ashen. So far they had just been getting acclimated to pack life and resting. Little Verity needed some time to recover from such a rigorous and emotional journey. But, Banshee felt as though it was time to get out and do something together. So, as the morning was settling in and Ban lifted from her slumber she decided to go get her daughter a snack. The fanged woman made her way to the pack's fresh catch stores and plucked a good sized Rabbit from the piles. Ver was very tiny and really didn't eat a lot in one sitting so they could easily share one for breakfast.

Banshee dropped the Rabbit to the ground and padded to her daughter's sleeping form. She leaned down to nudge Verity awake before sitting down next to the youngling. "Good morning." A pause. "Eat up, we are going on an adventure." She knew the mention of adventure would stir the pup.

Verity was sound asleep. She had been dreaming about chasing down the Mouse back in her previous pack. The darn thing always seemed to elude her. Right before she seemed to be able to catch it a voice disturbed her slumber. Mother was coaxing her awake and it seemingly worked as light green eyes fluttered into view. At first she was a little grumpy from being woken up but she caught those sweet sweet words. Adventure. Verity spent the last few days resting and wandering around the pack grounds. But now they were going to actually go do something fun. That grumpiness was forgotten as the pup sat up and her tail beat on the ground. "What are we doin'?" Beaming eyes searched her mother's visage with radiant curiosity. - Suddenly Ver remembered the Rabbit and leaned down to take a tiny bite. She was not too hungry yet but was very aware Mother would never let her go without at least a few good bites.

Banshee leaned down to take a bite of the Rabbit as her daughtered stirred. The waves of emotion made her smile a tad. Grumpiness forming into excitement as her words connected. Slowly chewing her food and then swallowing Ban decided to respond, "We are going to find some herbs." Honestly, Ban knew only a little bit more then the bare minimum when it came to healing. She could patch someone up in battle and could rattle off herbs that were useful for common ailments. But beyond that she wasn't too keen on the profession. That being said, her daughter showed signs of being rather interested in flora and was always asking questions about what the pretty flowers did. Hopefully soon Verity could train under a more knowledgeable healer but for now Banshee would have to do what she could.

After a few more bites from the both of them Banshee put the scraps from their breakfast away and looked to her daughter. "Ready?" With a swish of her tail the Klein girl moved to slip out of their den and towards the Rio. The riverbank showed promise of being rather rich with herbs and other medicinal matter. Ban glanced behind her to make sure Verity was keeping up. "We need to get you a herb pouch. Maybe we can find some materials while we are out. Keep an eye out."

It wasn't long before the duo came upon the river. Blue eyes took in the flowing water before she grew closer to the bank. That motherly instinct came into play rather quickly as she share a sharp glance with her daughter, "That current is stronger then it appears. Do not get too close to the bank, the closer you get the more slippery it is." She did not remain stern as she began to walk parallel with the water. Her pace was slow and her eyes began to scan the earth for anything promising.

After a few more nibbles of Rabbit Verity licked her lips and was ready to go. She sat patiently as Mother tidied up a little bit. The promise of herb gathering made the girl fidget with anticipation. Verity idly wondered what they would find. "Where?!" The question bursts from her mouth before she could even think it over.

They moved towards the Rio at a decent pace. Verity was much slower then her Mother due to not only her age but her size. She was significantly smaller then any other pup her age. It seemed she was just petite by nature. Mother assured her it was nothing to think much about since what mattered was her mind. But, it did mean one of her steps was near three or four of Banshee's. Obviously Mother was good about slowing her pace.

Mother mentioned making a bag and Verity offered a small nod. "We could use... Hide and.... Twigs!" Having been so sheltered she often found ways to entertain herself which meant some experimentation with crafting. Verity surely would keep an eye out for any good twigs that could be of use. The hide would have to come from fresh catch which Mother would definitely have to help with.

As Banshee ordered her to not get so close to the edge Verity offered a small agreeable nod and, "Okay." She remained a healthy distance from the bank as small paws carried her behind her mom. The riverbank was beaming with life. But, so far she mostly saw weeds, grass, and algae.
