AIN'T EVER WANNABES
Playing. She often went out to play and enjoy the leaves when alone. Why wouldn't she? Nothing would hurt her there. she at least hoped this was the case. Usually, things did not pan out as expected. Though, lately, she was only finding joiners on the boarder. Today, though, she was running through the leaves when she felt herself falling. Tumbling into a small pit in the ground, she would let out a yelp of surprise.
She, of course, was winded and lay there. NPC voice mixed with Exiles scent greeted her. Head raising, she would see the Exiler lowering his head in to grab her. Panic in her eyes she tried to run, but where would she go? It was a pit after all. The NPC grabbed her and hauled her up. Tossing her to the earth with a thud. A yelp escaping her as he laughed. Stepping closer and closer. She closed her eyes. Only to hear the Exiler scream.
He was screaming.
The pup opened her eyes to see a snake. A small, yet fierce thing. No.. It wasn't a snake at all. It was a.. Basalisk? The pup was surprised to see the beast here, much less attacking an Exiler. The thing was still young, fresh hatched maybe. But, it was the size of an adult anaconda. It was strangling the Exiler to death.
The screams stopped.
Then, it slithered away from the corpse and to the injured pup. But, it did not attack her. No, it seemed to study her before wrapping about her loosely. Blocking the chilly air from her. Night was falling fast, she she was sure her paw was twisted. She had a sprain and wouldnt be moving without help. So, she lay there. Knowing help would come and that this Basalisk was her friend.
What a strange day.
