Let's Play a Game.

This event does not have a specific trigger, and will occur randomly once Shanaw has been recruited.


Sha-Dialogue-Tag

Wolf Pup Kari... Tell Shanaw about tribe.


Kari-Dialogue-Tag

My tribe? My family, you mean? Well, there's Mom, Dad and my aunt, Moira... They can all be a pain in the ass, but each one in a different way.


Sha-Dialogue-Tag

They don't want play with Kari?


Kari-Dialogue-Tag

Play? Definitely not! Moira can be funny, sometimes... But my parents. They're so booooring...


Sha-Dialogue-Tag

Let's play game!


Kari-Dialogue-Tag

... Hmmmmyeaaah. .. Maybe. What are the rules?


Sha-Dialogue-Tag

Easy! Shanaw and Kari run and go as far, as fast as possible. First one who runs out of breath loses!



  • Sounds fun, let's play!


Kari-Dialogue-Tag

This is really a silly idea... But I need some silliness at the moment!



Kari-Dialogue-Tag

We'll need to wait a bit until everyone is sleeping... I don’t think my parents would approve.


Sha-Dialogue-Tag

Great! Shanaw can’t wait!



(Shanaw and Kari snuck out into the night, and ran under the stars like if there was no tomorrow. Hearts beating, wind blowing, feet thumping. It was foolish, dangerous, and liberating. Running, jumping, falling and laughing, they came back bruised, exhausted, and happy.)




  • I'm not too sure about this...


???


A Moonlight Swim.


Sha-Dialogue-Tag

Ready for game, Fox Kari?


Kari-Dialogue-Tag

What now...?


Sha-Dialogue-Tag

Night is clear. Perfect for swimming under moonlight! First who turns back loses. Winner ask loser anything. Can't refuse. When everyone asleep, Kari and Shanaw run to the beach. What do you say, Howling She-wolf?



  • Absolutely not!



  • Sounds like a plan.


Kari-Dialogue-Tag

You're batshit crazy, Shanaw. That's what I like about you...



Kari-Dialogue-Tag

Let's do this. Crazy is better than boring!


Sha-Dialogue-Tag

Kari will love game. Better than fun... Makes Kari feel alive!



(Once everyone fell asleep, they ran to the sea and spread their clothes on the rocky beach. Two young pale shapes went across the chilling blackness, like swift daggers into the night. They swam wildly under the cruel moon, until they felt there would be no turning back. Neither wanted to lose. But both wanted to live, so they called it a draw. And hardly made it back. They laid down side by side on the wet pebbles, breathless, shivering and smiling, until dawn found them.



A Risky Game.

This event occurs if the player chooses "Sounds like a plan." during "A Moonlight Swim"


Sha-Dialogue-Tag

Pssst, Kari, Shanaw have idea for REALLY great game...


Kari-Dialogue-Tag

Yeah? Something that will get us both killed?


Sha-Dialogue-Tag

No! But there is risk. No fun without risk, yes?


Kari-Dialogue-Tag

Where would the fun be ifwe weren't stranded on a deadly island and bullied by violent thugs?


Sha-Dialogue-Tag

Listen now! Shanaw know where Bjorn's man patrols every night. Alone. Always follows same path along seashore. Then sits on rock and watches sea. Every time, so drunk man falls asleep for long time. Shanaw and Kari steal man pants while man snores. What Kari say?



  • No, this is TOO risky.



  • I'm in.


Kari-Dialogue-Tag

I'd be happy to fight back, we've cowered in fear for too long...



Kari-Dialogue-Tag

But we can't be seen! If he links us back to the camp, we'll run into really big trouble. So if we're not totally sure he's sleeping, we give up.


Sha-Dialogue-Tag

Bah! Hit him on head. Hard.


Kari-Dialogue-Tag

No! This is risky enough. We do it my way or we don't.


Sha-Dialogue-Tag

Fine, fine... Still better than not playing game...


(And so they crawled in the dark, stealthy as young wolves. The man was already there, sitting in front of the ocean, his head down, a heavy bag next to him. Shanaw approached silently and then reached for his bag. But not silently enough. As the man suddenly awoke, he grabbed Shanaw’s hand and drew his blade. Before he could act, Kari kicked him in the stomach with all her strength. He fell down the cliff with a muffled groan, breathless, his eyes wide with surprise. He bounced a couple of times on sharp rocks before the sea's blackness swallowed him. Shanaw and Kari gazed at each other, without a word. The bag contained a few useful supplies.)



(Nothing would ever be the same)



Blood Bond.

This event occurs if the player chooses "I'm in" during "A Risky Game". Unlike most events, this one occurs the afternoon immediately preceding the "A Risky Game" event the night before.


Sha-Dialogue-Tag

...


Kari-Dialogue-Tag

...


Sha-Dialogue-Tag

So what?! Kari and Shanaw killed bad man. Kari and Shanaw should be happy!


Kari-Dialogue-Tag

Dummy, it's not that easy! If Bjorn learns that we killed one of his men... Not only he will come for us, but maybe he will kill EVERYONE in the camp. Because of us...


Sha-Dialogue-Tag

... Shanaw will protect Kari from Evil Bjorn.


Kari-Dialogue-Tag

That's not the problem... Urgh, you don't understand... If my mom learns about it... I would rather face Bjorn...


Sha-Dialogue-Tag

Tribe Mother doesn't have to know! It's Kari and Shanaw secret now. Don't tell anyone. Trust?


Kari-Dialogue-Tag

...



  • I trust you.


Kari-Dialogue-Tag

I trust you Shanaw. We share a special bond now.



Sha-Dialogue-Tag

Secret, yes. Bond. Blood bond.



(As she says these words, Shanaw swiftly cuts her fingertip with a knife. She licks a bit of the blood flowing, then points her finger at Kari.)


Sha-Dialogue-Tag

Blood bond.


(Kari gazes into the eyes of Shanaw, to see her soul. She slowly advances her mouth towards Shanaw's bloodied finger. She gently puts it in her mouth, and instinctively rolls her tongue on the wounded area. The taste is strong and salty, but attenuated by the warmth she felt in her upper torso.)




  • You're just trouble.


???


Wanna Go Hunting Together?

This event occurs if the player chooses "I trust you" during "Blood bond".


Kari-Dialogue-Tag

Hey Shanaw! Wanna go hunting together?


Sha-Dialogue-Tag

YEAH! Let's go Wolf Puppy! First to shoot rabbit with arrow wins!


Kari-Dialogue-Tag

Ahaha wait for meeee!


(Kari and Shanaw went hunting together for a few hours. All their running and jumping and uncontrollable laughter made the hunt... Not very bountiful. But at least they had a lot of fun. )



Sha-Dialogue-Tag

Ahaha Kari and Shanaw very bad hunters...


Kari-Dialogue-Tag

We'll call it a draw... We're equally mediocre aha!


Sha-Dialogue-Tag

... Shanaw likes to pass time with Kari Friend. No, more than friends! Kari is like sister Shanaw never had. Teehee!



Kari-Dialogue-Tag

...



  • Likewise.


Kari-Dialogue-Tag

It's true that at least, when I'm with you I'm never bored... That's a BIG change in my life! Hehe. I'm glad mom and dad accepted you in the camp, Shanaw. It wouldn't be the same without you...



Sha-Dialogue-Tag

... LAST ONE AT THE CAMP IS LOSER!



Kari-Dialogue-Tag

HEY! You cheat!!! Wait for me!



  • Joke

???


Gloomy Cave.

This event occurs if the player chooses "Likewise" during "Wanna Go Hunting Together".


Kari-Dialogue-Tag

Hey, Shanaw! I've found a hyper cool gloomy cave not far from camp...We go together?


Sha-Dialogue-Tag

Cave...? Gloomy...? Of course Kari and Shanaw go!!!


(Karl and Shanaw snuck out of the camp and reached a dark cave, only lit by moonlight.)


Sha-Dialogue-Tag

SO COOL!


Kari-Dialogue-Tag

You think a bear could have lived here?


Sha-Dialogue-Tag

Shanaw will seek footprints!


(The two of them continued to talk and laugh for a while. Then they got warm by a campfire they lit in the cave.)



Kari-Dialogue-Tag

You never told me about that scar on your body...


Sha-Dialogue-Tag

... Tshituashk stabbed Shanaw with knife. On wedding night.


Kari-Dialogue-Tag

Wow... Your kin have really strange traditions...


Sha-Dialogue-Tag

... Not tradition. Tradition is man go to bed with bride. But Shanaw didn't want to. Tshituashk gets angry. Shanaw gets angry. Stab. Dodge. Kill.


Kari-Dialogue-Tag

...! I didn't know...


Sha-Dialogue-Tag

Running away. Far. Hidden like raven in the night.


Kari-Dialogue-Tag

...


Sha-Dialogue-Tag

Don't make sad face, baby cat! Shanaw alive, and Kari is friend! Look what Shanaw took from camp...


Kari-Dialogue-Tag

Beer? But... You're crazy?!


Sha-Dialogue-Tag

Wanna try?


Kari-Dialogue-Tag

...



  • You're crazy! Yes!


Kari-Dialogue-Tag

Hel yeah! Bring on the booze!



(Shanaw and Kari share a full bottle of beer, taking turns at drinking straight from the bottle.)



(After opening her heart to Kari, Shanaw feels lighter. All her tensions have faded away.)



(They make silly jokes... they laugh... they roll on the floor... Their vision becomes blurry.)



(As Shanaw clumsily takes the bottle, her hands touch Kari's. She lingers, lost in a haze. They are getting closer and closer, their legs are now curled up together. Touching each other feels good. They feel alone, happy and connected. Naturally, gently, as Shanaw was reaching for the bottle Kari was hiding behind her back, their lips met... They froze, lips against lips, wondering what was going on. Time stood still. Shanaw instinctively pressed a kiss on Kari's lips, softly. Their lips slowly moved apart, and they opened their eyes, looking deeply at each other.)



(It only lasted a split second, and then Shanaw jumped on her feet before Kari had a chance to say anything.)


Sha-Dialogue-Tag

FIRST ONE AT CAMP WINS! Kari will never catch Shanaw hehehe!!!



Stolen Pants.

This event occurs if the player chooses "You're crazy! Yes!" during "Gloomy Cave".


Kari-Dialogue-Tag

Who stole my pants?! I said. WHO. STOLE. MY. FUCKING. PANTS?!?



Sha-Dialogue-Tag

Hehehehehe. Boohoo, Bear Cub Kari lost her pants? Hehe.


Kari-Dialogue-Tag

Again?! It's not fun anymore, Shanaw!



Kari-Dialogue-Tag

Give them back to me! You're such a child sometimes, urgh! GROW UP!


Sha-Dialogue-Tag

Kari mad?


Kari-Dialogue-Tag

Fuck you.


(Kari ferociously turns her heels back to camp after running after Shanaw... But... Shanaw throws at her back a disgusting ball of dirt... Right into her hair...)


Sha-Dialogue-Tag

AHAHAHA! Shanaw is best thrower! Right on target!


Kari-Dialogue-Tag

URGH! BUT YOU ARE A FUCKING MORON OR WHAT?!



Kari-Dialogue-Tag

You PISS ME OFF!


(Kari sits down in the dirt and starts crying...)


Sha-Dialogue-Tag

...


(Shanaw feels dumb... She slowly approaches the poor Kari.)


Sha-Dialogue-Tag

S-... Sorry Kari Friend... Shanaw sorry... Didn't mean harm...


(A tear falls from Shanaw's eyes.)



Kari-Dialogue-Tag

...



  • Make a scene.


???



  • That's ok...


Kari-Dialogue-Tag

Sorry to have yelled... I'm just... So tired.


Sha-Dialogue-Tag

Kari not mad at Shanaw? *sniff*


Kari-Dialogue-Tag

No silly... I like you the way you are, you know it.



(Suddenly, Kari tackles Shanaw and pins her to the ground, in the dirt!)


Kari-Dialogue-Tag

You fell for my trap, dummy! Now I win!


(The two of them wrestle on the ground. Kari has the upper hand and firmly grips the hands of Shanaw. Shanaw manages to make them roll, putting Kari beside her. She is pinning her down on the ground, against her chest. Kari manages to insert her leg between Shanaw's legs, and make her roll on the side. Kari 's pants gets ripped during the fight, but she laughs at it, still wrestling her friend.)



(They continue for a while, laughing, covered in mud. They don't hesitate to take a firm grip at each other. But sometimes, the touch is softer, like two dancers holding each oth er’s waist. They got back to the camp covered in mud and exhausted, but even closer than before.)



Fake Fight.

This event occurs if the player chooses "That's ok..." during "Stolen Pants". Unlike most events, this one occurs the afternoon immediately preceding the "Stolen Pants" event the night before.


Kari-Dialogue-Tag

OH MY GODS!!! THIS TIME I'LL KILL YOU!


(Kari runs after a giggling Shanaw, yelling insults, in direction of the forest.)


Blod-Dialogue-Tag

My, my... These two don't seem to get along after all... I hope they will be okay.


(Kari lost track of Shanaw near a beautiful river, the surface shining in the sun. Suddenly, Shanaw jumps from behind a large tree and pushes Kari in the water! But Kari knew Shanaw was up to something, and took a grip on her hand... The two of them are now sitting in water, laughing.)


Kari-Dialogue-Tag

Ahahahaha... You should have seen the look on my mother's face! It was a good idea to pretend having a fight... Easy way out of this boring camp!


Sha-Dialogue-Tag

YES! Wolf Pup Kari is genius!


Kari-Dialogue-Tag

We're quite fine here, don't you think? Water is nice and warm... It's sunny... Quiet... We could almost forget our life is threatened by a bloodthirsty giant man and his grunts.



Sha-Dialogue-Tag

Shanaw forgets everything when Kari is with Shanaw!


(Shanaw's comment drew Kari's attention. She looked at her. Their eyes met. Shanaw's face had never been so beautiful. Or had she never noticed before?)



  • Kiss her.


(Kari felt a warmth in her stomach, which urged her to kiss her friend. Her heart was thumping like crazy, but as soon as their lips met, and Shanaw kissed her back, only warmth was left. Shy at first, their embrace became passionate as Shanaw took control. She caught her breath, looked at Kari with fire in her eyes, and kissed her again. This time, Shanaw held Kari's neck while giving her a wild kiss, massaging her hair. Kari was lost in a turmoil of new feelings rising in her body. They stopped kissing, lovingly looking at each other for a while.)



Kari-Dialogue-Tag

... Shanaw... We'll have to keep this a secret... Promise?


Sha-Dialogue-Tag

... Why?


Kari-Dialogue-Tag

Mom... the others... they wouldn't understand... We have to take it slow... Okay?


Sha-Dialogue-Tag

Shanaw will do anything for Kari!


(And they kissed again, laying on the shore of the river, the stream of water gently caressing their almost naked bodies.)




  • You're my best friend.


Kari-Dialogue-Tag

You're my best friend for life, Shanaw. There, I said it. Happy now?



Sha-Dialogue-Tag

Friends... yes...



(An awkward silence replaced their laughter... They relaxed for a while, and went back to camp. Shanaw was quieter than usual.)
