The Cycle <br> The Chosen <br> Ch. &#356<_>hr&epsilon&epsilon <br> The Shining Grounds <p> "Do you smell that?" Gem asked randomly, sniffing the air. <br> "Fire?" <br> "Smoke." <p> The two cats looked around. It was a very bright day, mabye the sun had lit a leaf on fire. <p> Water felt warmth on his whiskers, it was coming from a clearing to their left. <p> They ran in, and the entire world around them was smoky smelling and shining. The ground was solid, white rock. It burned like fire. <p> It shone brighter than the sun, and seemed as if they were standing on the moon. Smoke was everywhere, bringing pain to both their nose and their eyes. <p> Gem coughed, Water gasped. <p> "What is this place?" Gem yelled allowed. <br> "This is my home." Said a voice.
