Talk about the other pack’s leader
“Honestly, I wanted to ask what you think about the leader of the other pack. I wanted to know how the integration is going.” You started. It seemed to be the best option to take her mind off of all the bad stuff in her life, so of course, the best option would be to think about the brightsides and plan for a better future with her.
“Oh… I mean. I suppose you’re right.” She started. “I believe the integration is going pretty well, honestly. There’s a lot of progress, and the whole dynamic of both of the groups are really starting to change up. But… I don’t know if that’s for better or for worse.” She continued.
“Hmm, well I suppose that’d all depend on who you’re asking.” You replied. “Well, have you been bonding better with some of the other members of the new pack yet?” You asked.
“Actually, I kind of have. I think that all works better towards our future you know. I mean ever since I lost my child, it’s as though some of the members of our original pack started to see me differently, and now it’s just become a bit weird, like they’ve been ostracizing me ever since that all happened.”
“Wait, really?” You asked.
“That’s just how I’ve been feeling. I don’t know, things are really changing.” She continued.
“I don’t know why, but for some reason, it feels like I could say the same thing. I can’t quite say I know exactly why, but it’s just something… I don’t know.” You just couldn’t find the words, but it’s as if somehow your instincts made you feel unsettled about what’s been going on. Honestly, it was satisfying to hear that someone else may have felt the same way about it. For a good long while, you pondered what you would say next.
