Sasha gasped, sides heaving, as her poor kit wimpered and wailed for food. "I want food." She repeated over and over. But Sasha was too weak to run, let alone hunt. She wimpered and limped over to a lightning-struck tree, hollow but providing plenty of shelter. She was so helpless and decided to keep to the shadows now. She gasped and curled up in a ball and before falling to sleep, asked Cody to lick her wounds.
Cody woke up and noticed her mother was still asleep. She licked her wounds again, blood was spilled out all over the floor. It was dry and... Within a few seconds, Cody realised her mother wasn't going to wake up any time soon. Buy she was still warm and breathing.
Cody didn't know much about how to hunt, but she knew to stay hidden and silent. She spotted a plump rabbit chewing on grass, took a deep breath and pounced, slicing a deep cut in the sides of her prey. She let out a playful battle cry and finished off her first ever prey with a sharp bite. She dragged the creature only just bigger than her back to the tree and dumped it in front of her mother, who had just woken up and looked extremely worried.
