There are traitors about and it seems like Alice is the only one who can uncover the truth.


2. Chapter 2

I shot into the field. The dry plants scratched my sides, but there was no time to think about that. I had to get back to the forest, where I could hide in a bush or the hollow of a tree.

‘See where the crops are swaying?’ one of the Villagers said. ‘That’s where the fox is.’

I froze. How could I have been so stupid? Of course they could see where I was as I went trampling over the plants! I didn’t know what to do. If I moved they would see. If I stayed here I would only be waiting for them to-

Two giant figures rose before me. I yelped with fright and darted to the right. A flash of silver brushed past me. Then another. And another. But I could see trees emerging in front of me. If I could just reach them before . . .

My back leg seared with pain. A cry escaped my lips and I tumbled to the ground. I looked behind me and saw a sharp silver stick was sunk deep into my paw and blood was splattered on the dry ground. The pain was almost too much to bear. I felt myself starting to black out. But I couldn’t – not now! With a sudden burst of energy, I ran towards the edge of the forest. As I took each step, pain shot up my leg and it could hardly support my weight, but, somehow, I managed to keep moving forward.

And that was when the ground disappeared beneath me.
