The Accusation

The Broken Oath Part 3 The gray goshawk with a stark yellow beak and white belly clenched her talons into the fraying bark of the matopi tree. The green leaves plump and full from the plentiful wet season fluttered near her blue eyes and she shifted her position in annoyance. As the heartbeats ticked by,... Continue Reading →

The Alliance

The Broken Oath Part 2 The raptor glided on the wind, his flight feathers curved and spread to catch the updraft. From his vantage point he could see the rolling dunes of the desert sprawling towards the setting sun. Far beneath the eagle owl his sharp gaze made out the undulating stripes of a herd...

The Betrayal

The Broken Oath Part 1 Death Bringer drew his coils tighter around him, his thin tongue flickering out of his mouth to taste the air. It was just before dawn and the sky was still a dark azure. He lifted his head as the breeze carried the scent of a meer. He recognized that scent.... Continue Reading →

Sorrel’s Honor

The full moon hung low in the dark sky, silhouetting Queen as she sat upon the Hill. Topside at the Hill Burrow was the whole Alphas family. Pride stood close to the Hill’s base and stared up at his mate, their youngest daughter Brightlight, by his side. The little three moon old pup was shaking... Continue Reading →

Bull’s Madness

Bull stood in the center of the group, all eyes on him as he scanned the crowd. His breaths were heavy, as if he had just finished a fight, and his broad shoulders squared. His face bore several small scars from a life of scraping. He had fought for every scrap of power he held.... Continue Reading →

Cloud’s Farewell

Every breath that Cloud drew was a struggle. The skin beneath her fur burned with heat, her fever insatiable. The puncture wound in her side reeked of infection. She had earned it in a skirmish with the Powers. She had no choice, she had to drive them out of Delta territory. That had been almost... Continue Reading →

Chaser’s Ghost

Chaser padded beside his litter sister Hunter and cast a last glance back at the burrow. There was no moon that night, so they had to find their way by starlight.  “Don’t worry.” Hunter said, bumping his shoulder. “You’ll be fine. I’m sure that The Mimic isn’t even out tonight.” Chaser groaned. “Why’d you have... Continue Reading →

Shimmer’s Dream

Shimmer watched Hawk as he churned the sand with strong swipes of his paws. It was dawn at the Alphas burrow and Hawk and Shimmer were the first ones up. Shimmer was sunning herself with her dark-skinned stomach facing the sun while Hawk was tidying the burrow entrance. Shimmer couldn’t help but admire him. He... Continue Reading →

Scarlet’s Promise

Scarlet panted as she allowed Hawk to slump down in the shade of an acacia tree. His breaths were ragged, and his eyes were closed. Scarlet bent down to rub her cheek against his head, he didn’t acknowledge her touch. His skin was hot and clammy beneath his fur as the fever raged through him.... Continue Reading →

Hawk’s Courage

The male meer was bigger and heavier than him, but Hawk had one advantage: speed. The male lunged for his foreleg and Hawk ducked. The male lashed out with both paws and Hawk weaved. Hawk lived up to his namesake as he dodged and bucked, jumped, and darted from side to side. He was a... Continue Reading →

Weed’s Vow

Weed tried to suppress the shaking, but against his wishes his whole body trembled. His heartbeat thundered in his ears, making it difficult to hear what Grace was saying. Today would be the Alphas first battle. Their family was growing, and they needed to expand their borders. Foraging in the Outlands wasn’t an option, and... Continue Reading →

Crow’s Cunning

Crow paused beneath the boughs of a bristling shrub with Wildcat only a heartbeat behind. Lucky for the brothers it was the wet season, so despite the sparse vegetation of the desert landscape they were able to use the heavily leafed shrub to hide them. At least for the time being. The air was split... Continue Reading →

Mist’s Search

Mist’s chest throbbed from the voracious beating of her heart. Her tail trailed, stiff, at her back. The scarred meer faced her with his hackles raised. His brown gaze trained on her. “I’m sorry. I didn’t mean to startle you.” She said, feeling oddly detached. Was it only one season ago that her mother had... Continue Reading →

OneEye’s Fight

Haywood didn’t scent the cat until it was too late. The spotted serval pounced from the tall grass, its claws glinting in the midday sun. Haywood just managed to dodge its first attack and pushed his mate against the base of a bush shaggy with new growth. “Stay here.” He barked. “I’ll distract it. Once... Continue Reading →

Queen’s Heart

Queen stared at the meer before her. A strange female with four small pups huddling behind her. Noble stood stiff and regal beside the strange female, his gaze as impenetrable as always. The dark scar lashed across half of his face made him appear even more stoic than he was. What had he said her... Continue Reading →

Poppy’s Love

Poppy crouched at the base of a shrub and watched as her litter rolled in the sand. Their thin pelts were covered in the grainy substance. It had rained the night before and the excess dew coated the meers pelts as a result. The sand stuck to their wet fur no matter how careful they... Continue Reading →

Pride’s Choice

Pride stared at the cold; limp body of his once powerful father sprawled in the dark sand. The sun was setting, sending bursts of pink and red into the horizon. Pride thought that the beauty of the sky only mocked the tragic events that had taken place that day. He could not believe that his... Continue Reading →

Noble’s Scar

Noble padded forward with his head raised his eyes scanning the ground. He sniffed the air in hopes of catching even the faintest scent of prey, but he detected not a trace. He wrinkled his nose in frustration. This season was one of the harshest yet, at least that’s what his father reported. He glanced... Continue Reading →
