He stepped forward, his breathing clearly marked by a white mist forming in the cool night. Warily looking around, he stopped. He was sure he heard a twig snap. Blake asked in a soft voice, trying to change his thoughts,

‘What exactly are we supposed to be looking for?’ the two men behind him looked around before Marco answered,

‘Dane saw it, he said it was roughly two metres tall, black and silver fur, he said that it had a dog’s head, but with a longer jaw.’ He shivered as he looked around him again, before continuing,

‘He said it was perfectly capable of standing on its hind legs as it tore her apart.’ He finished in a soft voice, shivering despite his thick coat. Blake looked at him with disbelief,

‘No animal comes to the Dilian woods! Even if it is as intelligent as they say.’ He gestured around him; emphasizing the fact the trees stood tall and dark around him. Softly, Dimitrios said to Blake,

‘Remember, it snuck into the village, no one noticed until Summer started to scream. You saw what it did, there was blood everywhere.’ They stiffened at the uneasy memory, and satisfied by the effect it had on the duo, Dimitrios turned around, shifting the spears weight in his hand.

‘Shh, we are supposed to be hunting it, yes? Let’s just keep moving.’ Blake said, they nodded in response, and moved forward again. They moved in silence, occasionally shifting a spear or fixing where an arrow sat on a bow. They only got a hundred or so metres before a hiss echoed between the trees. Reeling, they crouched, looking around. It was empty; they saw nothing. Marco looked up and caught sight of a shadow moving between the tree tops. In a shrill voice, he said,

‘It’s in the trees!’ The shadow moved again, the glint of silver flecked eyes reflecting against the dim moonlight. The creature looked at the forms crouched below her, and let her face slip into a shiny grin, revealing rows of pointed teeth. It widened as the small forms stepped back, startled by her presence. Blake let the arrow go with a twang. The creature lightly dodged it, landing metres before them. Using its front paws, it launched itself towards them, crushing Marco under its weight. Dimitrios threw his spear as it bit down on Marco’s throat, cutting his main artery. The spear sliced a groove into its shoulder, causing it to hiss, it leapt backwards, studying Dimitrios slightly. Deciding for it, it leapt towards the trees, using it hind legs to push off them and leap towards Dimitrios. Blake lithely threw his spear; it hit the creature squarely against its shoulder, sending it flying sidewards. It struggled upright, using its teeth; it grasped the protruding stick, and snapped it off. Slowly turning towards them, it looked at them through slitted eyes, growling softly. Blake gently reached towards Marco’s still form, hoping to get the spear. His fingertips brushed the shaft of the spear as the creature slowly circled Dimitrios, walking like a human, its vicious claws twitching at any sign of movement. It turned its massive head towards him as it heard the sound of leaves moving. Blake held the spear at the ready, poised to strike. Faster then what Blake thought possible, it swiped at the thick wood, severing the tip from the wood completely. Before he could move, he was pinned to the hard ground, the creature’s hot breath rasping against his face. A metre away, the spear tip glinted from the ground, and he reached out, vainly hoping to have some defence. His eyes switched back up to the creature’s cold eyes as he realized he would not be able to reach. The blood on its snout dripped onto his face, leaving a rivulet of ruby liquid against his cheek. Behind them, Dimitrios grasped the bow, three arrows lying against the bow string. He waited, as they creature reared up, raising a claw to strike Blake’s frozen form. With a yell, he let go, the arrows careening towards heir target and burying them selves in the creature’s back. It fell side ways, slamming into the ground. Blake still lay with his head angled away, his eyes shut tightly. With a huff, Dimitrios kicked him lightly, and he cracked an eye open in response. Getting up, he brushed off his trousers, and gestured for Dimitrios to get Marco’s dead form as he lifted the creature’s limp body. They looked at each other as they began to walk away from the blood smeared clearing, not saying anything. And they walked on, between the now eerie trunks, alone.

His eyes slid open, the soft light from his window making him stir unwillingly, he closed his eyes again, not wanting to move from this comfortable position. His eyes snapped open, and he looked out the window fuzzily. He half smiled to himself, then the sheets flew across his room as he noticed how high the sun was. He scrambled towards his shoes, slipping them on, and then he yanked his shirt off the foot of his cot, sliding it on as he stepped out into the empty corridor. He looked around in the slight dimness, hoping that he was not as late as he thought. Everything was quiet, with a huff; he hurried towards the garden, weaving through the web of corridors with ease. He ignored the black arches that passed him, and the smug looks the kitchen slaves gave when he trotted past. But as he drew closer to the garden a voice called,

‘Maximus! Hey, Maximus !’ he turned at the mention of his name, and saw Micky’s slim form scampering towards him, her brown hair trailing behind her a she ran to catch up. As she drew level with him, she grabbed his arm, dragging him forwards before he started walking again. She was more agitated, and gripped his arm tightly as she walked faster.

‘We are in so much trouble, Maximus! We should’ve woken up!’ Maximus grimaced as her hold turned into a death grip. Prying his arm away, he said lowly,

‘We’ll go in through the back, you can help me today.’ He rolled his eyes as her expression turned to that of a grin.

‘Thank you.’ She said, and kissed him lightly on the cheek before skipping towards the small wooden door. His lip twitched dangerously, threatening to turn into a small smile. He came to the door just after her, and turned the knob easily, enjoying the cool feel of the metal on his skin. Before she stepped in, he said,

‘You can clean the fountain while I work on trimming the roses, alright?’ he smiled as her face frowned and she replied grudgingly,

‘Fine. But you have to get the top part, you know im too short.’ She said slowly. He shrugged and opened the door,

‘As long as you get the slimy part on the bottom. I got sick of that job the first time I did it.’ She slapped his shoulder lightly, and he heard her mumble,

‘Has no idea on how to treat a lady.’ This time he smiled, and he followed her through the webbed tunnel. As they turned a corner, light burst through the opening, and they were momentarily blinded. They came to the small opening on the ground, and Maximus slid the wood across and lifted the piece of grass that covered the opening above them. Peeking over, he cursed, and looked down at Micky,

‘It must be inspection day. Guards are everywhere. You stay near the roses near the edge of the garden; I’ll work on the fountain.’ Maximus flinched as he saw a guard lash out with a whip, and quickly looked down before he knew who was hit. Micky’s eyes were wide, and she nodded, even though the guards were banned from hitting the female slaves.

Lifting her up, he watched her scramble towards the rose hedges without being noticed. He grimaced as he slid through the opening, and he closed the hole neatly, careful to test it before he turned around and began to busily walk towards the workshop. As he stepped out onto the stone path, a guard eyed him suspiciously, and started towards him. Mentally flinching, he pretended not to notice, and walked swiftly towards his goal. He fought the urge to look behind him as he leaned over the bench and grabbed the metal scraper. The sound of boots coming towards him made him grimace, and the man behind the counter had his lips pressed into a hard line. Maximus gave him a final look before turning towards the heavy sound. The guard looked at him with narrowed eyes, and Maximus’s heart released a shuttering beat as he realized the guard was looking at the man behind the counter. With one arm, he grabbed a towel, and rushed towards the fountain. He turned onto the path, and walked easily towards the fountain.
