was i the only one that cared about her here i had my own downs with them but never did i once think my life was better than that of a different animal " we should go now i do not like the sound of the cubs screeching for food "i said than started off i would do it alone if i had to but no cougar went i am here was going hungry. for hungry cougars meant a horse was a good meal.
She tossed her shapely skull, the red waves falling to the ground. "Yes, I do not like the cry of a starving child," I said and hurried after Caddy. Nor did I like the sound of animals being killed. Deer or cats. A hard choice.
i moved off and galloped to were i had last seen some deer the herd had a few sicks the last i had seen them. i walked on till i found them and smiled only the sick were there the herd had left them. i walked around them slowly and made them walk towards were the others were.i saw them and let the pace slow more and my smiled had gone "what i am doing is right and this lot are the sick i have seen around" i said hoping they would help me get them towards the cougars.
Cadifor cantered up to where Moon Dancer had found the deer. The cougar lay in waiting not far from the herd, downwind so they would not scent her. Cadifor lunged out of the brush, charging at the herd. They spooked and began sprinting, straight towards the cougar.
Seeing the deer heading her way, the cougar crouched lower so as not to be spotted until she weeded out the one that she was going after. There she was. A doe with a heavy limp, one of her back legs must be broken. She would not survive anyways, another predator would get her eventually. The cougar checked to make sure she did not have a young one at her side. Nodding to herself, the cougar took off once the doe passed her by. She lunged, leaping two feet off the ground and landing on the does back. The doe cried out and went down.
Satisfaction flooded the cougar as she positioned her mouth around the crying doe's neck. Warm, fresh blood flowed down her throat as she suffocated the deer until no life was left in her.
Cadifor turned from the scene before it got too gruesome and trotted away, back to the clearing he usually stayed in.
i looked as Cadifor charged out and when the cougar got one i looked away but stayed there and walked forwards when the crys stopped " you can come to me when you need our help again"i said than started off at a gallop "thank you Cadifor for the help" i said and walked away i was stay just i wanted to see the land some more. that was when i saw the sun coming. i stopped and looked at it than moved to my hill and reared and danced as the sun disappeared and the moon came out.
