[Flattened against the thick tree limb like a cat, Mowgli was in a mild slumber to escape the heat of the day. His strong arms wrapped around his wee cub, keeping her secure against his bare chest with her swaddled in soft, cotton cloth. The moment he felt her weight lift and evaporate, his eyes snapped open.

He looked about himself in feverish panic, his dark eyes wide with fear. He didn't feel her fall and it was then- when his eyes skimmed about himself- he realised this was not his rukh. This was a mans town, larger than he had ever seen. He now squatted in one of only a handful of young trees, that he could see.

Mowgli was in shock, he knew he didn't drop his daughter and it did not feel like she was taken, like he was so long ago. It felt that she had simply evaporated like smoke, Mowgli patted down his chest and wondered if this was some kind of dream.

Until his sharp nose caught that tell-tale scent, it was lingering in the air and the humidity was rising and making him sweat, rain was coming and that was bad. All the scents were going to intermingle and eventually vanish, in exchange for the sweet smell of rain, greenery and mud.

The loin clothed man sniffed at the air, his long blackish blue hair already beginning to glisten slightly, as it caught the infantile rain droplets, he didn't have long to find and follow her scent.

It didn't matter for now, how he had ended up her. He just needed to find his cub quickly.]

[Loki is wandering the streets by his lonesome. He's wearing a waterproof and galoshes, and he's happily puddlejumping with the knowledge he can summon new, dry shoes at any time.]

[Oh, but look! A hobo!] Hello, sir hobo!

[Eep, it's a tree-clawing hobo! The worst kind! He'll just back up a bit.]

You shan't get out that way, I'm afraid. You must find your starite. Did you not read the ever-so-helpful expositional posterboard?

My nonsense is the answer to all those questions as nonsense is all you'll find here. But if you're more happy scratching at that tree than finding your way home, by all means, continue.

[Loki's thinking this one is more of a child than he is.]

[Uh oh. Loki doesn't like being approached by someone with such a temper. But he won't go scrambling--he's just ready to.]

Your cub? Are you sure she came with you? This place snatches up people alone as far as I know.

[He nods.]

Then perhaps you came alone. But we can test it!

[He writes something down and poof! Bloodhound!]

Here, give her a scent to follow.

Ah, but this is a hound of blood, bred especially to track.

[The dog sniffs the blanket and makes a few circles around before sitting down, obviously not going anywhere.]

Unless she flew away, I think you have your answer.

From: [personal profile] lock_ki
I don't see why not as it seems you're the one who m-moved.

[Hold on, he's getting licked to death by a bloodhound. Not quite what he intended.]

[There is a snake hurrying past, fleeing the horror and terrible smells of the man city. He knows if they see him, they'll only try to kill him, and that's a fight he can't win. But where is the Jungle he calls home?]

[His tongue is flicking like mad, and he catches a familiar person's scent!]

Brother! ... What is this??

post SWS thread, yup

I know what Men do to me. You're afraid too, I can smell it.

And I was sleeping in the Jungle, not here. This is wrong.

How will you stop a mob of Men?


I don't smell her at all.

If she had been here, I would be able to pick up her trail. We are nowhere near the Jungle.

[That's more frightening than the city.]

Find a way home.

[Now that is an unusual snake. Good thing the strange man, who is standing in the rain while somehow not getting wet, can speak snake.]

There's little to fear. This city is largely empty.

[Startled, since you appear to have snuck up on him and that's all but impossible--he rears up, lifting part of himself about eight feet into the air, since he's about fifty feet total.]

This isn't my home.

This doesn't seem to be anyone's home. Hence the emptiness.

[My my, you are impressive, aren't you? But Crowley's not exactly afraid of snakes. Holy water yes. Snakes, no. So he just keeps talking calmly as if this situation were more ordinary.]

You can return home easily enough, don't worry.

Will you please tell us how?

There should be a starite waiting for you--a thing that looks like a star fallen to earth. If you find yours, you'll return.

From what I've seen, you won't know until you try it. A bit of a nuisance, that.

How many Starites are there to test?

Presumably as many as there are people here. One for you, one for me, one for the lad not so fond of clothing ...

He is my brother. Clothing is ridiculous and he knows it.

From: [personal profile] devil_put_aside_for_you
I would say it depends on the clothing. [But he shrugs. As a devil, he has nothing to hide--in that sense, anyway.]

I'm curious as to how you two became brothers. Usually men fear snakes and vice versa.

He is a wolf more than a man. I rescued him once and have always liked him.

Fair enough. It's not exactly made with scales in mind.

Raised by wolves? I didn't know that actually happened.

It was great that the streets were actually quiet for a change. The usual crowds she had to deal with could get tiresome after a while.

Birdy--or Shion as she was known from her dayjob--walked down the streets haplessly with her fingers laced with one another behind her head. "I hope that there's enough food to eat when I get home. " She commented with a sigh. All the dayjobs that her keeper had her doing sure was exhausting. On top of that, she had to go and do her actual job at night--which was investigating crimes.

Her thoughts were more or less interrupted by the suspicious creature sniffing about on the streets. He certainly didn't act like the humans she knew of. Birdy stopped in her tracks and let her arms swing down to her side. "Hey." She couldn't let him go without asking a question or two given how suspicious he was acting, "Are you looking for something?"
