Chapter.3 Go out
“It may big problem for human.”
I bemused as crouched in flat stone. It was settled in Celina’s garden. Governor Head of city’s people was like Era. I thought. Suddenly I felt urge to chew flowers. Roses had neat smell and also seemed fit for bite. I felt fangs was itchy that was canine’s beating habit. I shook my body then went back original thought.
I had brought a letter for governor. It was fact. At that time I didn’t think addressee’s state. Living with bureaucrat tended to make bore someone’s state. I used to sniff Cohort the bureaucrat that they released arrogant atmosphere. In this air, wolves merely little care to someone’s state. Bureaucrat always thought I’m higher.
Anyway, even Claudian was governor; I didn’t think his death associated with my delivery. If this related with me that Cohorts could never attempt to kill me. Instead of kill, they might torture me. And added I just delivered a letter; I’m illiteracy. But one thing, it seemed Cleary wronged. What point remained at me that I was useful to investigation. They didn’t use iron tool at torture but use pen and ink. I knew they like dreadful or endless question. If I was investigated, I might be stared at desk during my whole life. I disliked it, thus way to go back cage in safety got more difficult.
Flower small was good and sky was clear. It was good day even none of textile workers who made amount of chattering remained inside of house workroom.
She went out to somewhere before half of hour. She said, it may take long time. I thought she might meet some people. She was not tax officer who stuck in his desk with amount of papers. I saw these kind men in bronze hall before. City tax office located in Bronze hall. She was not such pity man, thus she often went out for meet someone that it had no problem.
No one remain in this house. I was free and also today even was human’s holiday. I decided throw out my logic. I was trained it before I dwelled in kennel for my puppy hood. Throwing was easy: Do not think everything. I should just ride my instinct fully. Pant-, Pant-, what a wonderful day! I could try running, digging and hiding in this wide world. I got urge to jumping, just moving had no reason and scratching that using my hind leg(Badly, I got flea from somewhere before few days). I had panting and panting and panting as shined summer sky. I had urge to water then rushed toward a bucket which was settled in next small well.
However, I should call my logic after some minute. I destroyed part of rose garden. My canine instinct just decided it was fully fit for bite in fang’s pleasure. Bad dog. I thought. In human world, we should ban many our behaviors for human. I knew one pact as my mouth was stuck with roses and thrones. Tongue was hurt. The pact is she might be angry to me. She loved rose and was bring them. I was afraid as a canine.
“hello! Roberui ante. I say my gladness from my first, and second, and third pleasure.”
She said. A wide man seated on his chair in front of her. His face was looked mild(We well saw in dark, caught well moving things, However didn’t well divide shading. It was just mild than anything in my sight.) but had some tobaccos and drinks smells. These were faint that other human never smell it. He used musk perfume well that perfume covered his other smells and even little sweat. In sunshine from window, He was happy that He meets my mistress with eyes.
“Father! In my supposition, you drank some alcohols last night.”
She said in her little anxiety. I realized their relationship that was deep than I expected. A family. I got a right answer.
“Well, that night I had just one or two sip of drinks with my friends.”
He answered with pretentious but didn’t hid it. His words were merely excuse.
“What do you coming here for?”
He asked and added his chuckle. Family conversation I determined it. While I was living with her, I heard Roberui or that Ante several times. These back talks had contained bad nuance. I assumed her and that Roberui may have bad relation. My wolf ears heard dark gossips but I didn’t report to her. I had thought its relation was sensitive to her.
“I just want meet father. It was weekend before last time we met. What happened during that time?”
She questioned. Happy smile hung on her face that seemed could never go away from her. Good family. I thought except his little drink smell. I was crouching on carpet that was embroidered diamond shapes. It seemed expensive.
“What is it? I heard some talks that they said I brought scary beast for your safety.”
Wide man pointed me through his desk. He looks to me in his curiosity eyes.
Today, she went out with me to somewhere. This place was many of odd smells mixed. It was large stonework building and yard. She said this place is dyeing workshop. She seemed to know this place and went straight to corridor that was decorated neat wooden floor. At the room in corridor, wide man seated in his chair.
I hated pointing. In nature feeling, that pointing just referred to concern. But I was trained logic that logic caught base circumstance and talk. His is human and also my mistress’s father. Human was afraid to wolf and his daughter was only living with wolf who had wiry and gray fur. I was afraid to his next words.
“I’m bough-.”
“When you asked to me that you can buy one or two dog like things, I had questioned my friend that he knew well the dogs. It has been years since I make question; I thought this one was still expensive. Where do you get money?”
He interfered. He still was keeping chuckle but his eyes cautioned at me. Suddenly I’m afraid. If he ordered her to kick me from her house, I might be dumped at road then be killed cohort or shepherd.
“You are success and I have my home and also earned well money. I’m not child, father.”
She replied. She wrinkled her face, might thought her father is going too far. My leader might protect me. I felt. I was little relived.
“If you told me, I brought you better one.”
Wide man, Roberui clicked his tongue. Its sound made my ear itchy and flinches. Human never felt small sound’s itchy. We could hear various small sounds. In this case, I felt nerve that, better one? She or he who had called better one might have mild fur and good shape. His said that meant we were money or goods. I got this like treat in many times.
“I like this animal. She had good behavior and no problem.”
She responded. I really like her. She was very generous leader and protected me. I was relief that sinews act like same. Wide man seemed to he decided chose other topic. He opened his mouth.
“I see daughter. Is your work getting into better? I haven’t heard your news in these days.”
He was wide man but not bulge. He wore large suit that had looked stiffen but he also not bore man. Instead, suddenly, he got long smile. If I could smell, it showed enjoyable man’s air.
“I do well live since I leaved from your protect. Mending clothes is not my dream but will get money. Hmm, sometime, I can get real clothes making request.”
She got one clothes request in these times. Wide man made loud chuckle. I sensed this conversation entered main discussion. In the sunshine through office’s panes of glass window, Father and daughter’s meeting seemed usual and pleasure but every conversation contained its subject. I was keeping and looking it in relief of mind and muscle. Wolves usually did observe that our feeling led to us into this acting.
“Well done. I heard before several days that my one of operative found new way. He said in front of me that we could try new dyeing which from his mind. I might get extension my ‘work’ to out of city.”
He smiled in his reverie. I thought textile workers they had favorite story form their fabric work as like as Cohorts usually said law matter.
“When I was young, sometime you got request clothes making but now you seemed just manufacturer that you don’t make clothes in nowadays. However you still keeping your habit from that times.”
My mistress was keeping their textile story but I sensed bitterness from her. It hid some intention.
“Hmm, Celina. I don’t know what you saying.”
He pretended.
“You had drunk. You had touched your friend’s thing. Ah, you had got feast. I can find it from you. Is this also your professional work?”
She attacked invisibly. I sensed they were sharing their problem. Keep my logic. I thought. Our feeling or instinct had tendency that was define in easy. Feeling which from deepness had easy standard that was Bad or good otherwise anger or relief. Human’s problem was normally complex. I needed to keep my logic.
“hmm, What do I last night? I don’t have any special memory.
He pretended once more. Wide man seemed really innocent at that time. But I smelled none innocent.
“You always have playing, father.”
She made Definition. It little pinned to him. I could smell her dislike and usual calmness. At last, I let my sinew form discussion of me. They seemed could don’t care of me. It gave little interesting even to wolf. I heard often that roberui then I wanted to see these back talks’ reason. My feeling was simple that I had curiosity(It must not involved fire that I spent first one year for overcome fear of fire.) I should see it directly.
“You already know I want little joy. That joy wasn’t bad. It was little, just little. My daughter, I never were fall out to my playing. I’m also did work well in my work. Now I thought some research for new and good dyeing way with my worker.”
He excused. This time He not pretended. His discussion was easily uncovered that he seemed had many discussions with her in before. I smelled something that was woman, hmm, women. I know one pact that human male was favorite to get more their female kind. Lot said if you couldn’t fix your sick thought, I’ll cut you with my sword. But I think it was true.
“Please, you should drop down your meeting time. You had met many prostitutes that even I can say some of them names. I smell your drinks. Last night you may get a great feast and your friends’ breasts and- Do you have plan that make a young brother for me?”
She made point and seemed she got a win. Did she smell? It was not truth that she conjectured then directly said that got a point. Human couldn’t smell bare little scent. I assumed this like conversations was frequent that she could say directly.
“It was my pleasure. Even I usually got a play but also had devoted to you. Now you get own your h- hmm, house. My playing barely disturbed my own work, thus, I have right to my choice. Celina.”
He putted out his opinion against her. It might the old problem to them. I sniffed atmosphere. In the our kind, this arguing might solved easily, winner ruled and thus failure gave subjection, wolves usually fought.
“I don’t think like that. Many people thought you as bastard and I’m your daughter. Roberui is bastard then her daughter? I heard it before. People thought ‘The apple doesn’t fall far from the tree.’. People guess I have a man or men but I’m innocent. I do not dare suppress in now. You should give to me your solution.”
It seemed serious. When she went out from her red house with me, she radiated that she have some problem. I had guessed it related with her tailor job. Shine was good and room was tidy than outside of dyeing work place. Wide man’s office had good furniture which people say good things. These had same smell as Bronze hall’s furniture and wooden decoration. Should I intervene for my mistress? I worried. It’s unexpected and I had been didn’t know her background.
“Is this your problem? Which was carried from your mind? Hmm, I will have many times that use for you as father and daughter. I love you but-. Have you another matter that I expected in this day time meeting?”
Roberui; his face crumpled by little shame. I didn’t know exactly this background but know this : if he is wolf he did back off or licking her chin. However he gave out his opinion that if seemed he had curiosity.
“hmm, Do you want throw out me to that? In that case, I have one. I need to go somewhere in my decision. Even we can have big argument but we still share as family. Father and daughter, that is fair. What is problem which was you have.”
Her face was suddenly down. She seemed like pup, a weak pup. Her real face also down. Her brown dress was looked worn. She still held her discontent and wanted to fix her father for make good man. However she was down.
“hmm, yes, your right but not this time. I’ll give a message a few days later. I just want more comfortable conversation in now.”
He said, made chuckle, and then watched out me.
Hmm, hmm, hmm. These hmm might be their familial habit. I could mimic this in her servant side. What is message? I was curious. It might be human’s own which was too difficult to understand to wolf. They seemed forgot my existence in their conversation. Is it their mistake? I didn’t know.
“Celina, we are man and woman. I think we do not act like it.” He pointed me; Celina was watching, found her mistake. “So, we should keep our good mind.”
Roberui gave to me one wink which contented appreciation for his escaping chance. Complex human. I stooped my head to wooden floor. It radiated waxy smell.
Then they had good talk. They talked about their work, made chattering in their hobby(Celina said about rose; Roberui pretended then said tasty food.), asking their living to each other. I knew that people made little sweat in their easy situation. They made little sweat than before. I detected it.
“I think this also heard back talking before. This has sharp ears and glittery eyes.”
In the end of pleasure conversation, Wide man Roberui pointed me.
“You may be right but I think fluffy is good companion. I had done my determination.”
I dislike pointing. However, in her mind, father’s point out might be not dangerous. She made ringing chuckle.
“Your determination always was not bad; however, this may sneakily hear bad stories. I need to say right truth.”
He said and adds some words that he should have a time with me.
“Why do you want alone with her? She is my things.”
“If you want my confirmation that allowed living with this animal, then, you need to allow my opinion.”
She made little moan but he demanded. He may hate our kind as same as other human. I didn’t want alone with him but she went out through door.
“Do you think nothing but special?”
I shook my head. He stood in short time then seated his chair. He tapped his desk.
“I don’t know why my Celina had selected you animal. You may sniff many things form me. You may know that I disbelieve your kind. Anyway, Celina was content from you. I should give to you some words.”
I was crouching that I didn’t move my seat. I relaxed my tail, made bow and backed my ears. I made form of submission. In my thought, this posture was fit for situation.
“Celina was lonely girl.” He cupped his chin by his rough hands “I never saw she have two more friends. I’m bastard and love bastardly life but I had devoted her through the longtime. Sometimes she was looked hard but many times was fragile.” He made sigh then watched out the door. No sound came from it. My mistress might go far away, He added his saying. “You should love and care her. It is right in your seat.” He said.
