Sophie frowned at the idea of neighbors snatching up your land the moment it was vacant. She'd never had that problem among her family but she sincerely hoped her brother hadn't gotten any ideas with her gone on yet another long journey.

Fintan's guess had her snapping back to the present, though, and a short bark of disbelieving laughter had her features crinkling with a smile. "I'm much older than a cub," she reminded him gently, sighing contently as she reached out to play with the beads in his hair. "I already have my own territory. It's been my home for years. When I'm away my brother looks after it for me. I always bring a small gift home for him and go on a few hunts with him and...that's really all the repayment he can handle before he tells me to look after myself more than him. I think he prefers doing things on his own."

In reality it was more that Christopher knew his sister needed his help more than he needed hers and he allowed her to tag along so she felt she was contributing.

The tiger snuffed. "Sounds more like it's his territory than yours. He tolerates you around him in the same way I tolerate my own female kin. He chases you off in time when he's had enough of you. You are still so much a cub." Fintan leaned in further to her touch, enjoying her playing with his hair even as he listened to the sounds of his world around him.

"You'll see in time I'm right. You just have to grow up more first is all."

Sophie tensed slightly, a deep frown creasing her features even as she continued playing with Fintan’s hair. The tiger really was so stubborn about his opinions even when they didn't even apply to her.

“I'm fully grown. It’s my brother that's still young,” she pointed out gently, though it was hard to keep the edge of irritation from her voice. “He never chases me off. He couldn't even if he tried. The rest of our family would never tolerate it, but… Well we are just very different when it comes to siblings. You would see how other families live if you ever left this place. Different is not bad, there are many ways to live happily.”

"If you feel so," Fintan growled, not believing her for a second. In his mind he was right and she was seriously and grievously mistaken. She really was just like a cub. Perhaps she was even a bit touched in the head and that  was why her brother and family tolerated her so. Instead of putting her out of her misery they allowed her to continue in her sickly state. It really was a sad state of affairs after all.

And now she was his problem. Fintan let out a pained sigh. Why were the females always his to deal with? First his sister and now this one. She was not even the same species as him! "You're such a problematic female," he bemoaned aloud.

Her eyes widened briefly before narrowing. She leaned away slightly to look him in the face, studying him for the sound he'd made. There were all types of people and perhaps he was persistent with his rude comments for the sake of masking his pain. At least that was what she hoped, she was doing her best to soothe him.

"I have no reason to lie... Why am I a problematic female?" Sophie asked calmly, the corners of her lips turning down slightly in a disappointed frown.

Fintan huffed and sighed, realizing his mistake of making the comment aloud now that she was yipping at him again. Women really were trouble in his book. First there was his mother, then his sister, and now this scrap of a kit. What was a poor tiger-shifter to do?

"You don't listen. You insist you're right when you're wrong. You've barely been here long enough to create even half of the problems you have already started and to top it all I now am left defenseless and unable to defend either you or my territory. Perhaps my northern cousins are softer than me but here in the jungle it's survival of the strongest and right now I'm lower than you on that vine of dominance. So yes you are a problematic female."

Sophie sighed as he explained himself, gritting her teeth to hear that most of the problems were his own personal ones, even if she had been the cause of them.

"Is it problematic to you that I want to help and fix things? That I'm taking care of you in your time of need? I'm trying my best to undo what I've done, you don't have to be so grumpy about me sharing my experiences in our free moments. Calling me problematic and a cub, of all things," she grumbled, though she unconsciously continued stroking her fingers through his hair to soothe her bubbling anger and nerves.

"And only a little while ago you said you trusted me to protect you. If I am your only hope at protection I don't see why you would antagonize me," Sophie pointed out with a grumpy huff, unwilling to let his words push her away. She would do what she'd promised, he deserved that much from her even if he was incapable of showing any gratitude for it.
