Disaster has struck!
I venture toward the western crator, making sure to avoid the areas that are filled in caverns and darkness. I don't like caves much. I don't even like my den most of the time. I guess I'm a little claustrophobic. I have some fun leaping over the rocks like a gazelle though, testing myself and I slip only once. Okay, maybe twice but no more than that.
Deciding to get away from the rocks for now, lest Anemone and Conner didn't get my agility in their DNA, I head over toward the sounds of rushing water. My tail sways behind me, long lean legs maneuvering me forward as I race over the grass, pushing myself with every stride. By the time I reach the water fall, I'm panting, my tongue lolling out of my mouth in satisfaction, golden eyes gleaming with life. My tail sways side to side as I go to the edge of the pool, stepping forward till my ankles are soaked in the water. Lowering my head, I take deep refreshing laps of the water, raising my head only to lick at my lips.
Shaking out my coat as I step back as if I've been swimming, I throw my head back, calling out for my imprint and children. I don't know if they'll even hear me but I try anywhere for the hope that they could be close by. I want to see her again. I have to see her again. And better yet, I want to meet them. I want to know what my children are like.
