I'll make the world safe and sound for you

(This post was last modified: 01-06-2021, 03:50 AM by Anubia. Edited 1 time in total.)

Anubia knew it was time when the contractions started to hit harder than they had. It was dusk as she had lit the tiny "fire place" -- a small patch of dirt that she had surrounded with stones and placed kindling in -- with her Fire Newt casting Ignite. It was roughly a yard and a half away from her nest but the warmth filled the room. She was fairly sure it should be safe until the pups start walking and exploring.

She was curled up in a new nest she had made from some pelts she had scavanged winter ungulate carcasses on top of moss and other soft plants. The edges were slightly curved upwards to try to keep the little ones in for as long as she could. And she hoped that the pelt would soak up the pup's mess so she would just have to replace the pelt whenever it got dirty. Right now, she had a second one only a few paces away because birthing was messy.

She ate some herbs for strength and to help with birthing. Part of her wanted to call for help but some instinct told her to do this alone. She had acted as a midwife for others before and she knew how the process went. But it felt different as she was the one giving birth.

"< Heqet help me, >" she said in Arabic.

Well, she was in the residential district and if anything happened she could call for help. She had a sturdy stick next to her and bite down on to help her during the process. She was ready. She felt another contraction coming and gripped the stick in her jaws as she got ready to push.

— Fade Out For Birthing —

When it was over and she had clean both of the puppies, she remembered an old tradition with the afterbirth. Well, it didn't hurt to try it?

And then when she was finished, the new mother felt exhausted and in pain. First of all, her jaw hurt a lot, not to mention other places. But when she looked down at her daughters, the pain was a distant memory. She laid on her side, allowing her daughters to nurse.

"Thank Meskhenet," she said as she looked at her healthy puppies.

A tiny golden jackal puppy with silver markings on her neck, chest, and tail; and with charcoal markings around her body. Though Anubia didn't quite expect the row of small -- not fur -- feathers along her daughter's back. She remembered Iwao having feathers. But these kind of looked like magpie feathers?

Anubia remembered hearing of a place called "Cittagazze" from a traveler when she was a healer in Suhra' Almanzil, the city of magpies. It sounded like a nice name for her magpie-feathered child.

"Cittagazze Amasis," she said allowed, softly to herself. Something was missing. Her mother had been named for the goddess Neith. Anubia herself had been named for the jackal god of death. Remembering the false name she had given to Iwao, she tried it out.

"Laverna Amasis?"

It didn't sound quite right either. And something in the back of her mind was worried about that name. But it was important, wasn't it? And it sounded pretty.

"Cittagazze Laverna Amasis," she said. It sounded right to her. She smiled as she looked down at the pup she nursed.

And then the she-jackal looked at the second puppy who looked normal for a jackal except her pink splotched skin and white splotches across of her body. This puppy didn't have feathers but she was still beautiful.

Well, now that she had an idea of maybe doing a middle name for her daughters, she had some names in mind.

She remembered one of the Praxidike, Arete whose name meant excellence. She glanced at the sister and figured the girl should have a middle name too. She considered the name "Fawziyya" which meant triumph.

"Arete Fawziyya Amasis," the she-jackal said. It sounded perfect.

She remembered something mothers in Suhra' Almanzil did.

" < Welcome to the world, Cittagazze Laverna Amasis and Arete Fawziyya Amasis, > " she spoke in Arabic. " < May the gods and goddesses of all the pantheons protect you. May they guide you on your path through life. Be blessed by the gods and goddesses, dear ones. > "

RE: I'll make the world safe and sound for you


Syuna was needed once more for a delivery. Though it had been a little while since her last, she still took joy in helping this new family grow. Albeit only by one small fox kit.

She crafted the fox child with care and love. Her warm gaze settling upon the new mother's abode. The sheer size of the lioness caused her to appear just outside the home. With the small kit gently placed on the sandy banks, the great feline spoke out to the jackal. "Anubia Amasis. Come collect your final child." Both parents needed to be alerted of the new arrival, whether or not they'd both would be in the child's life was beyond her control. Syuna would not interfere with the affairs of mortals -- no matter how much she cared for them. Iwao Satora, you're a father now, the message was sent telepathically to the father.

Her work now done, she disappeared is a flash of light.

She walks. | "She talks."

RE: I'll make the world safe and sound for you


Anubia didn't expect for a voice to call her but she got up and heard the voice telling her she had a new child. She arrived at the doorway to see a lioness of enormous size with pink earrings and pink eyes with pink around them. And then the lioness disappeared in a flash of light and Anubia saw a newborn fox kit.

A fox, like Iwao. But the kit's fur -- she padded closer to sniff him -- his fur was like her own. How? She picked him up and heard a cry from one of the pups and brought the male pup and laid down to allow the pups to nurse.

As she laid there, she wondered. Who was this lion? She delivered a child to her. Hathor? Goddess of creation? But it had been a lion. Sekhemet? Lady of life, patron goddess of physicians and healers. A creator and destroyer, lady of pestilence.

Anubia looked down at her new son in the light of the rising moon.

"Qamar," she said aloud. God of the moon; of the moon. She pondered a middle name, thinking of the lioness that delivered him. She remembered the Aztec god of creativity, dancing, feasting, flowers, love, painting, pleasure, souls, and summer. Xochipilli, brother of Ixtilion, god of medicine.

"Qamar Xochipilli Amasis," she said softly. And then she decided to perform the same ritual.

" < Welcome to the world, Qamar Xochipilli Amasis >" she said in Arabic. " < May the gods and goddesses of all the pantheons protect you. May they guide you on your path through life. Be blessed by the gods and goddesses, dear one. > "

Everything was strange... Super strange.. There was nothing at first and then there was everything at once. There were noises, smells and there was touch; birds were twittering away, a gentle breeze lapped at the young fox kit's fur.. A feeling of something grainy under him, it felt itchy and he didn't like it. A small cry escaped from him as he shifted in the sand, attempting to wiggle his little body upwards but failing to do so slumped back into the sand..

A booming voice called for something, a noise that should have startled him and yet in a strange way soothed him and his urges to cry and then another sound came to him.. A shuffling sound. Then he was picked up and carried somewhere..

His little nose twitched and drew in the smells that seemed to overwhelm him. All sorts of new things met his senses and he almost wanted to shrink back into whatever was carrying him and hide there.

Once again he was set down , this time he was placed on a softer spot with no sand. Ah! yes, this was better.. Another voice entered into his ears - it spoke of something, no he didn't care.. It wasn't something to worry about for now. Wiggling forwards the little fox kit would attempt to get as close to the warm body as possible. This seemed right, this was his mother. While he wasn't sure what 'mother' meant he was positive that this was it. Tiny squeaks escaped from him as he tried to burry his nose in her fur.

At first, there was nothing. Nothing but the warmth and comfort inside of her mother and the occasional nudge from her littermate. In a sense, this was a perfect paradise of ignorant bliss...but alas perfect paradise would be tearing at the seams.

In what felt like a flash of time, the warmth was mauled and torn away and replaced by a cold world that she did not understand. She was not where she wanted and yipped and squealed as the outside world welcomed her unbeknownst to the small kit. Nose found way to a bushy being of warmth against the harsh unknown. She raced to it with little hesitation. Was this the keeper of warmth that once held her? If her sister found her, her head would turn with a squeak, unsure of who to trust now that everything one known had disappeared.

Even the mound of coziness slipped away and she was alone again. She cried out for the animal she would soon know as "Mother" to come back. When Anubia had come back, another shape had joined the ranks of her sister and her. Granted by the great Goddess Syuna, a fox kit would be their beloved baby brother. She did not know who she even was yet, but Arete Fawziyya Amasis was a native Yavanian and a child of Gullborg.

She walks. | "She talks." | "She thinks."

Cittagazze came into the world and immediately felt cold. It had been warm in the darkness for as long as she could be aware. And now she was cold with an unfamiliar thing that was wet running along her body. She made her first sound, a loud squeak. And soon she was allowed to find warmth along her sister and nursed from her mother. She categorized as her "mother" as she recognized her as such.

And then she was interupted from her nursing as her mother moved. And she cried out for warmth and food. And mother was gone. Was she gone for ages? Years? Cittagazze had not quite developed the understanding of time but all that mattered was that her mother returned. And with another presence that nursed alongside her. Another that she categorized as "sibling" though she had yet the understanding to name the difference between herself, her sister, and this new sibling. But this new presence nursed alongside her and therefore was family.
