26. How Could You?

 

I was scared. I admit it.

But I reacted on instinct and ran towards the sound.

Everyone surged after me.

My feet pounded against the ground. I stopped and listened. The forest was absolutely silent.

Father burst out behind me. I ignored him and swerved my ears around.

Nothing.

I turned to face Father. He frowned.

"AAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!"

I jumped.

"Let's go!" Father waved with his tail.

My feet skimmed the ground. I tore ahead of the group.

"HELP ME!!!!!!!!!!!!"

I skidded to a halt.

"Father!" I called. "It's coming from near the castle!"

I sped towards the sound. It sounded like it was coming from someone young. That made me go faster. I burst out of the trees.

A little kitten crouched on the ground.

She was gray with black stripes. I couldn't see her eyes from here. A hiss reached my ears.

A black and yellow snake towered over the kit. I leaped forward into the fight.

"Stand back!" I cried, leaping in front of the kit. I didn't quite know if I was talking to her or the snake.

Either way, my battle training surged forward and I swiped my extended claws across its cheek. I ducked as it spit out venom. I really hoped the kitten had done what I had told her and got back. I didn't have time to check.

I flattened my ears and leaped around it. Let me tell you, it's not easy fighting a snake. Time seemed to slow down. I gritted my teeth and dodged its venom blows. Finally I tore my claws into its throat. The snake swayed and thrashed before lying perfectly still.

It was dead.
