"A banderbear, where?!" Leaf pointed to a brown form that was grabbing a piece of fruit from a tree. Tears formed in Twig's eyes, half from saddness, like when his first banderbear freind died of wig-wigs or when hubble died from over-bleeding and other wonds, and half from happyness, a banderbear! Leaf was practicly bouncing up & down, for she loved and owed banderbears, back before the trog colony a stray banderbear saved her and her brother from certain death, starvation, but in the end he died from a wig-wig attack. And Cowlquape was teriffied, a huge probaly mean, and not to mention hungry...massive animal, sure his barkscrolls pointed out they were friendly, but still. Twig and Leaf ran, well Leaf ran, while Twig made an efford too, and Cowlquape nervously approached the banderbear, stocker style. "Wuh-wuh!" The banderbear said to Leaf, Twig, and Cowlquape. "I-is he going to eat us?" Cowlquape asked, eyes glued to the banderbear "No of course not!" Leaf replyed, while Twig poked her and they both stood in front of the big creature "Fr-un-z?" Leaf and Twig nodded, but Cowlquape stood statue-still in shock, that is until Twig nudged him, so Cowlquape nodded dumbly, eyes never leaving the banderbear's huge tusk-like teeth coming out of his jaw. "Wuh-wuh" the banderbear said before turning around and slumped though the forest, with the three children hot in pursuit.
"Is this berry good Twig?" Cowlquape asked as he picked up a big, plump, red berry. Twig sniffed the berry and handed it to Cowlquape "It's good." he said before running off to find him a berry. Leaf picked up a green berry, sniffed it, and tossed it over her shoulder, and it hit the ground with a plob! "Deadly" she grumbled before turning and plucking a yellow berry from a tree, after inspecting it she smiled "Not deadly, finally!" she put the berry under her arm and hummed softly to herself as she joined Cowlquape and the banderbear Twig nicknamed Dusky, because of his brown color. "Where's Twig?" Leaf asked "Still hunting for food." Cowlquape said as he accepted Leaf's berry and placed it beside his own. "I'm going to go look for him you stay with Dusty Cowlquape." Cowlquape nodded as he sat beside the giant banderbear. "Twig...? Oh there you are...Twig?!" L eaf walked and kneeled beside a Twig who was rubbing the yellow scarf, and was wincing painfully. Leaf grabed Twig by his arm and guided him back to the camp, helped him to three piles of grass and lay him on the second biggest one, the one he and Leaf shared. "Twig I'm going to wrap your leg in a leaf, before my yellow scarf ends up red. Leaf untied her scarf from twig's leg put a cloth, not his or her comfort cloth of course, allowed Twig to chew on his comfort cloth because she knew that the blow from the tree had hurt really bad, and climbed up a tree, grabbed the biggest leaf she could find, punched two holes in the sides, opened her pack and pulled a cloth from it, removed the cloth from Twig's leg and wraped the makeshift scarf around his leg. "Now rest here i'll get you some food" Twig, who was in no mood for argument nodded "Blue, stay here and keep Twig company." "Kya-kya" Blue said to Leaf as she pulled out her dagger and chopped her fruit into two pieces and grapped them and headed over to Twig. Here you take the bigger piece Twig." she handed the yellow fruit piece to Twig, then useing her hands, broke a small chunk of fruit and placed it in front of Blue before she began to eat her's. (How are we to make it to mother-mine if we're just starting and Twig's already injured...it could take months to get to the other side of the deepwoods, let alone a wood troll path that leads to our little village.) Leaf covered Twig and herself with a blanket she had removed from her pack, then smiled remembering Twig's comment
"Leaf you have everything but the kitchen sink in that tiny pack of yours!" Leaf turned and said "You'd be surprised what I have in this little p-" she stoped stoped short when a sudden pain overwhelmed her "Twig i-in my pack g-get the little tablet n-now" Twig peeked his head in a selection of her pack and as soon as he did he altimaticly slamed it shut five shades of red. You see Twig had a zero in women and girls, but in his time with Leaf, and a short lecture from Cloud Wolf had tault him the stuff in that selection were not for his eyes. Twig turned and gasped, for his sister was rocking back and forth on her heels, about to faint, for when she was a four year old a woodtroll had acadently nocked her hard in the head with axe handle. So Twig shut his eyes opened the pack and searched for the tablet "I found it!" Twig said aloud, then poped it into Leaf's mouth reving her.
