The next morning, Calicia found another lump of meat before her.  After eating it, she determinedly set off at a run, in an attempt to track the mysterious figure who kept leaving her food.

 

They must be a god!  They are so kind, and why would they want to keep me alive, anyway?

Today, she tried looking for pawprints, however the thick blanket of leaves that coated the floor made and tracks at all but impossible to see.  She set off running again, although she didn't know why.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

After hours of sprinting, Calicia collapsed and fainted of fatigue.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

She stood up.  Calicia wasn't in the forest any more, but a strange landscape full of twisted shapes and curved lines that spring back and forth before her eyes.  Her stomach growled ferociously, and there was no food.  Anywhere.  She was falling, falling, falling...  Calicia hit the ground with a thud, still standing.  She felt her insides dying painfully, and her legs toppled from underneath her.  Closing her eyes, she slowly began to die.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Her eyes shot open as she woke with a start.  Her breathing was quick, and she spent a minute slowing it to its usual speed.

 

Is that my fate?  No, It mustn't be.  I'm sure there is no place like that.  Is there?

Worry overwhelmed her body, and she lay shaking for a second, however she refused to allow herself to bleieve that she was scared.
