There was the whistling of disturbed air, a soft grunt, and a stoat collapsing. The creature whipped his sword on his heavy green jacket that he painted up to resemble shadows of the forest. There was one less vermin in Mossflower.
"Ow! Lissen here you, you struggle, I kill you, it don't matter what me master says! Make those pannercakes that you did for brekkist."
The fierce ottermaid stopped struggling for a moment and locked eyes with her captor. "I will kill you. And those pannercakes, as you call them, they're called pancakes."
This was stated so matter-of-factly the weasel dropped his show of bravado, then quickly recovered and turned to his companion, a ferret, "Lissen to what she says, mucker. She couldn't kill me if she had a kickass sword an' me hands were tied behind me back."
The ferret looked wary, "I don't know, mucker. She might be one of those warriors from the Redabbey."
Lurqui, the otter prisoner spotted a black hare behind the vermin, he held a paw to his lips and indicated the sword at his side. Lurqui blinked understandingly. In one fluid motion the hare had slain the ferret and had his sword at the weasel's throat. The hare quickly relieved the weasel of his weapons and tossed them to the ottermaid. The weasel managed to croak, "Make it quick." Though he didn't expect Lurqui to be merciful.
"I will, more than you did for me. But remember, in your next life, be kind." Lurqui killed him heartlessly. She went to flop down next to the hare,
"So, what's your name?" She watched him intently for an answer, none. "Will you talk to me?" The hare nodded.
It suddenly dawned on Lurqui, "Can you talk?"
The hare shook his head.
"Do you have a name?"
Another shake of the head.
"Do you want a name?"
"Could I give you a name?"
The hare smiled widely and nodded his head several times, a record.
"Do you like the name...um...let's see...ah! How about Citirius, in the ancient tongue of otters, it means silent warrior."
The newly named Citirius smiled his approval.
I'm headed to Redwall, but I got lost when I was captured, caught me sleeping, they did. Do you know the way to Redwall?"
Citirius nodded, he pointed south.
"Thanks, would you like to travel with me?"
Citirius smiled. Then, as if struck by an idea he grabbed the carcases of the two vermin and pointed to their clothes, then to her.
"Are you saying that we should disguise ourselves?"
Citirius nodded. He then pointed to the carcases of the vermin and indicated many.
"There's more of them?"
"Than its even more important to get to Redwall now!"
A/N: Phew! It's hard writing a mute character, it must be much harder to be a mute character, there'll be longer chapters coming soon. If you can come up with a better title, let me know, cause, frankly, I'm terrible with titles. ~W0NWILL
