Chapter One Memories

The first thing I remember is being carried by someone who I must believe was my mother. We were outside and it was raining. "It is not very long now, my precious one." She whispered to me. "We will be safe soon." Then disaster reared its ugly head. A bolt of light came down from the sky and struck the she-cat in the chest, miraculously missing me. She dropped me from her jaws. I just sat there on the ground, lost and alone for the first time in my short life. Then, I got up and began to walk.

All too soon, it was night. I knew I had to stop but I didn't know where to go. Then, I felt teeth meet my scruff. "Come on, I'll keep you safe." I still squirmed. "Your mother never came. I thought it would be a good idea to look around. Guess I was right."
