To Hope

She didn't deny that she was worried. After all, as cute as it was to see the two young ones playing together, the fact was they were enemies. As they grew older, Copper would learn to hunt, and Todd was high on the hunting list. The future just wasn't in their favor.

But what could she say? Todd just had so much trust in the hunting dog, so much faith in their friendship. Of course she had to warn him, but she didn't have the heart to crush such hopeful dreams.

Dreams of being with his best friend once again.
