Chapter ... 6?! WOW I NEVER THOUGHT I'D MAKE IT THIS FAR!
Chapter 6: One Week!
After getting to know everybody Team 1 turned to the unofficial leader Shasta.
Feeling the annoying burn of eyes on him Shasta looked up from his paws to meet the eyes of every wolf on the team... apart from Melody who met his eyes with, well, the fur that covered her eyes... SHUT UP! MOVING ON!
He flicked his ears in annoyance and bared his teeth slightly.
"What?" He growled.
"Well? What do we do now?" Kyle said, seemingly unfazed by Shasta's odd eyes giving him ' The Glare of Death' as Luca had dubbed it.
" We look for clues." A voice spoke from the back of the crowd.
Surprisingly it was the Not-Quite-Silent Melody girl that had saved him.
" Huh?" Kyle ever-the-clueless-one asked.
"Storm mentioned clues. Look for them." She replied patiently.
" I guess thats as good a place to start as any." Daisy piped up.
" How do we know where the clues are?"
" If we knew where they were we wouldn't have to FIND them!" Ali said hooking her paw over the top of her muzzle.
To say Kyle was surprised would be the understatement of the century. No girl had EVER talked to him like that and he clearly didn't know how to deal.
Apparently he eventually realised standing there gaping like a fish wasn't helping him detain what little pride he had left.
"Find the clues it is..." Kyle said half heartedly, tail drooping he walked in a random direction.
"You realise that your going back the way we came." Shasta more stated than asked.
"YOU GUYS ARE SO MEAN TO ME!" Kyle shouted throwing a temper tantrum a toddler could only DREAM of throwing. It was kinda sad really.
Everyone apart from Melody laughed- even Shasta made a light almost-inaudible chuckling sound.
They turned to see the tiny wolf silently padding away.
Exchanging surprised and confused glances they raced up to her.
She didn't even turn.
Then she stopped.
Ali seemingly saw this as some kind of command because she instantly dropped to the floor and started sniffing at the ground.
Melody kept still for a moment.
Ali gave a quiet yap.
Then Melody was gone- disappeared through the bushes.
Kyle jumped and looked around, it seemed he was going to say something before Melody emerged again carrying some scarlette coloured berries in her mouth.
Most of the wolves tilted there heads in slight confusion, but they were quickly filled in by Robin.
"Iruka berries? OF COURSE! You are going to use them to heighten our tracking senses? So we can scent where our leaders have been? Genius!"
Melody was seemingly pleased that someone had caught on without her explaining, for she dropped her bundle and offered a small smirk to Robin before nudging the berries closer to him.
Catching on quickly Robin plucked two from the small bunch and chewed, spat the small black pips out, then swallowed.
Melody looked at Shasta expectantly.
Shasta supposed heightened senses wouldn't be too bad.
I ALMOST FORGOT!
I SAID THAT I'D TELL YOU WHAT THE CHALLENGE WAS!
Well every time I mispell a word I must delete EVERYTHING I wrote after it and type it again.
I really should get my brain checked out...
Shun: You said it not us!
SERIOUSLY IF YOU HAVE NOT WATCHED WINNIE THE POOH THEN YOU WILL LIVE A MISERABLE BORING EMO SAD LIFE.
JUST TO WARN YOU.
WATCH WINNIE THE POOH.
THAT WAS AN ORDER.
