Most of the southern region of Baa'sek is cut off from the rest of the continent by the dense, dangerous Tengel Rainforest. Much of what isn't forest is swamp lands, with the Baian Swamp covering the majority of the coast. Most cities exist along the edges of the rain forests, particularly in a divide just on the eastern limits of Baa'sek. Lamenolai lies to the north while the Slums lie to the south.

His eyes widened even more. He hadn't realized that she recalled anything from that time before. He sat back, placing both his paws on her shoulders.

"No," he said, "they didn't leave because of you. They left because...because it was they who were greedy. They wanted us to do too much, and when we couldn't, they left us."

"Oh..." It didn't sound like she believed it very much.

He closed his eyes, thinking back to those days. He remembered curling up in a cardboard box too big and wet for him to sleep in properly, his body wrapped around the young Kuhna kit he had found in the alley. He remembered hearing his parents snarl quietly at each other as he tried to sleep.

"Why should we take her in? You know that neither of them have a good chance of survival! That's why you haven't named him yet, isn't it?"

Before, he had been able to get his parents to stop fighting by quietly speaking up and asking them to stop. But after he found her...they still stopped, but with looks in their eyes that said much less love than they had before.

"You'll have less to eat if she stays."

"I don't care! She can be my little sister! I'll be a good big brother, I promise!"


What a stupid little kit he had been.

They hadn't even abandoned the two of them officially. He didn't know if that hurt more or less. He had simply woken up one day to find neither of his parents curled around him. He had waited so long for the two of them to come back, sharing the few scraps he could find with the smaller cub.

Part of him kept wanting to believe that his parents hadn't meant to leave him behind, that they had run into some trouble and were trying desperately to get back to him. However, finally, after several weeks of staying in the same place and almost exhausting the food supply there, he had been forced to move on when they were discovered.

But he would never blame it on his Little Sister. That was what she was to him. He didn't know any name other than that for her, and she would never know any name other than Big Brother for him. Names were something that parents gave you, to show they loved you.

And it was obvious that their parents hadn't.

He just wished that Little Sister didn't remember that fact.

"Big Brother?" He looked over at his little sister, obvious worry on her face. "Are you sleeping? You shouldn't sleep when you're hurt! You told me that!" He had to smile at the fact that her concern had apparently pushed her worry about their past away.

"I was just thinking about some things," he explained.

"What things?"

"Bad memories. You don't need to worry about them."

"Okay..."

She pawed at the ground a bit. "But I want to help you," she said at last. "You're always worrying about so many things! Can't I help you worry about them too, so your mind isn't so crowded?"

"You don't need to. I'm your older brother, it's my job."

"But when you worry, you get all quiet, and that makes me worry anyways!" She sat back, looking triumphant, then winced.

"Little Sister!" In all this rush, he had forgotten that she was still injured. "Where does it hurt?"

"That's for me to worry about and not you!" she said, turning away.

"What? That's not the same thing! I know you're hurt already, so I'm going to worry either way!"

"I know you're thinking worrying thoughts too, and that makes me worry as well!"

"Knowing those thoughts will make you worry too much! Just let me take care of you!"

"But I want to take care of you too!" She looked over at him, her eyes accusing. "I know you're hurt real bad, more than you told me! So you tell me how much you're hurt, and I'll tell you, okay?"

He stared at her. Well...he supposed he couldn't have kept her ignorant of their circumstances forever. He was a fool to think that...

"...alright."

"And you have to eat an apple too!" She pushed it at him.
