With Wolf, and Mir...
As the two animal children walked through the large park forest, they became more, and more aware of their growing hunger.
"Wolf... I'm hungry..." Mir whined.
"I know, I am too, but we just have to keep looking for food we want to eat." Wolf told her as he looked around for food
As they looked around, they soon realized that finding food was as hard as the rabbit had told them. Food was indeed scarce, they had been lucky to find that berry bush at all. Wolf looked to the sky, and noticed that the sun was setting, meaning it would be night time soon.
Mir sighed, and said "I don't think we're going to find any food..."
"Hey, don't be like that, I'm sure we'll find something." Wolf said smiling in an attempt to cheer her up.
She didn't return his cheerful attitude, or smile, but he knew he had helped some. Wolf sighed as he looked in a few more bushes, but found no berries. Then he looked up, and saw an apple on a tree.
"Hey look! An apple tree! See? I told you we would find food." he called out to Mir, whose eyes went wide as she looked up to she the apple 6 feet off the ground.
"Yeah, but how are we going to get it down?" she asked him.
He suddenly frowned at the apple as if it was rotten, stepped on, gand covered in flys.
"I don't think we're getting this apple..." she mumbled.
"Oh... Yeah..." he said trying to think of a way to get to the mocking fruit.
"Oh! I could climb the tree, and knock the apple down!" he exclaimed excitedly.
Mir simply stared up at the apple, and looked back at him to realize he wasn't joking. She remained speechless as he began his ascent up the tree.
"Uh, Wolf?" she asked.
"Yeah?" he grunted, exerting too much strength.
"You could just use your super speed, and invincibility to knock the apple out of the tree right?" she asked him staring as he froze on the tree.
He thought for a moment, and realized she was right, and stupidly said "Oh... Yeah, right..."
He then proceeded to back up, and run head first into the tree, making it drop about a dozen apples onto the ground for them to eat.
"Food!" Mir yelled, running up, and grabbing an apple in her mouth.
"Hey, wait on me!" Wolf called to her playfully, running over, and doing the same
"I told you this was a bad idea Anna!" Mike yelled, pacing around looking for some kind of indication as to which way they came in.
"I'm sorry okay?! I just wanted to help find Mir, and Wolf!" Anna screamed back at him.
"Well now, we're all lost!" Mike screamed back at her as he stopped pacing, realizing it was no use.
Anna opened her mouth as if to say something, but closed it back again as she knew it was the truth. Mike stared at her for a moment as she looked at the ground, and he sighed.
"Anna... Look, this isn't all your fault, I should have been watching where we was going when we came in here." he told her trying to cheer the kitten up.
She didn't reply, and he sighed again.
"Come on, we need to go find Mom, Dad, or Shadows." he said picking a direction to walk in.
Anna sighed, and followed him looking around for any sign of Mittens, Shadows, or Bolt
Back with Mir, and Wofl...
"Wolf, thank you for running into that tree to get us these apples." Mir said chewing on her third apple.
"It didn't hurt, I have my temporary invincibility remember?" Wolf asked also chewing on his third apple.
"I know, but thank you anyway." she said smiling at him.
He smiled back, and finished his apple.
"Okay, I'm full. I think I might take a nap." he said laying down on the ground, his ears folding in.
Mir finished hers, and said "Yeah, me too."
She then walked over to where Wolf was, and lied down next to him, cuddling up next to him a smile clear on her face. He returned the smile, and they drifted off into their nap.
About an hour later...
Mir yawned, snuggling up closer into Wolf, but that only made him wake up slightly.
He groaned a little, but Mir simply mumbled "Go back to sleep..."
"Mir, we have to get moving before it rains remember?" Wolf mumbled back, yawning himself.
She replied with a few mumbles that could not be heard, and stayed trying to fall back to sleep next to Wolf.
Wolf sighed, and raised his head up, popping his neck a few times. Mir whined as he moved, and he chuckled lightly.
"Come on Mir, wake up." he said shaking her with his paw.
She shewed him away with her paw, but he then heard a rustle in the bushes. He suddenly had the feeling of being watched, and he didn't like it.
He then tried to shake Mir awake, only he shook her a bit harder then last time whispering "Mir get up, there's something in the bushes."
She opened her eyes, and eyed the bushes Wolf was referring to, but she didn't see anything, even as the feeling of dread washed over her, she didn't pay it any mind as she stood up yawning, and said "I don't see anything."
Wolf didn't say anything as he eyed the bush. Mir looked over at the bush, and she too watched it for a moment. Waiting to see if something to see if something would happen. As if granting her wish, the bush once again rustled. At this point, Mir was scared for her life. The feeling of dread now taking full effect over her, and scaring her to her very soul.
Wolf gulped, and whispered "I'm going to go check it out, if anything happens, forget about me, and run.
He then proceeded to slowly walk up to the bush, and as he got closer, his instincts screamed for him to run at full speed, but he ignored them as he walked closer to the bush. When he was around 4 feet away from the bush, a large wolf jumped out from behind it right at him, he dodged, and ran backwards as Mir stood there paralyzed with fear. As Wolf backed away from the figure standing in front of him, he soon realized that Mir was still there. He spared a glance back at her, and back to the wolf.
"Well, well, well... Looks like I found lunch." wolf said in a gravelly deep whisper of a voice, smirking dangerously.
Mirs ears glued themselves to the top of her head. Fear coursing through her very being, knowing impending danger approached, her mind practically screamed 'GET AWAY NOW!', but her legs remained glued in place. She gulped nervously, and eyed the wolf as it eyed them, but for other reasons.
With Bolt, Mittens, and Shadows...
"Wolf! Mir!" Bolt screamed as he looked around for any sign of them, but finding none, the previous days rain covering any signs of their being there.
"Hey dog," Shadows called.
Bolt ran over to where he was, and looked at him expectantly.
"Look at this..." he said referring to a tiny paw print.
"You think it may have been Wolf, or Mir?" Bolt asked, inspecting the paw print.
Shadows looked up, and around the area, but he saw to other signs other than the paw prints.
"It's the only lead we got." He said as he started following them.
Bolt shrugged in agreement, and followed behind him. They didn't make eye contact the entire trip they spent tracking the prints, but they both knew what the other was thinking.
'Where are they?' they both thought.
They soon found it was the tracks of a small rabbit, who looked up at them with distaste.
"What do you want?" the rabbit asked, voicing his dislike of the two.
"We were wondering if you've seen these two kids?" Bolt asked showing a picture of the two in a picture he had clipped on his coller.
"Ugh... Not those two again... Why, do you know who their parents are?" the rabbit asked, showing his dislike of the kids.
"We are their fathers." Shadows told the rabbit, his dislike for him proving to match his for them.
"Are you now? Well you should think about teaching them not to mess with other animals." the rabbit said, hopping away.
Shadows ear twitched, and he said "I'm going to go kill that rabbit, I'll be right back..."
"Stop... We have to find Wolf, and Mir remember?" Bolt said, holding his paw in front of Shadows.
Shadows glared at him, but complied as he started walking in a random direction. The other direction of where Wolf, and Mir had gone.
With Sassy, Kevin, Hazel, Penny, and Pennys Mom...
Kevin cried into his mothers side as he thought he might never see his friends, or siblings again. Mir, and Wolf going missing had made him very sad, but Mike, and Anna going missing at the same time drove him over the edge. He had been sobbing non-stop since they had figured out that they too were missing. Hazel too was quite sad, but still tried to comfort him as Penny, and her mother tried to find them at the house.
"M-m-m-m-m-Mom... W-w-w-w-when a-a-are w-we going to f-find them?" he sobbed out.
"Soon dear, soon." Sassy said, petting him with her paw.
