    Warpaw

    She shakes her head and pads towards the bushes where she saw the streak pf red. She leaps forwards and comes to a screeching halt. Three foxes are eating a rabbit. And she just interupted the feat. She yowled and scrambled back towards blackhunt. All foxes leaped. One caught her beofre she reached her mentor and friend and flung her into a tree. She lay dazed as al three approache her.
