Aryana and Damian barely talked as they returned home. Damian’s silence affected her far more than any words he could say. As they came upon their home Nina was waiting for them with Adian right next to her. Damian shifter back and ran into Nina’s arms. As Aryana witnessed this the stabbing to her hear was unbearable. Aryana ran off into the forest, she could not handle Damian’s rejection. Aryana wandered around the forest not realizing where she was headed until she saw the ostrich.
Xavior just went through his normal routine, when he looked out into the forest and saw the most beautiful black panther. She seemed to follow his every move, watching as he fed and watered his flock. Xavior chose to ignore the beautiful creature, going about his business. As he finished up his work and decided to head out into the forest to gather wood. As Xavior walked, he sensed the panther following. Suddenly the panther appeared next to him grabbing him by the shirt pulling him back. As Xavior looked in front of him, he noticed the trap. He looked into the panther and silently thanked her.
Aryana realized what she had done and the mistake that she had made. She never should have interfered, but he seemed to know exactly where she was in the trees. She looked Xavior in the eyes and saw the troubles that he had been through and the past that he seemed to be running away from. She sensed the sudden change in his eyes as recognition replaced confusion. Aryana pan panicked and ran back the way she came.
Xavior was shocked, when the sense of recognition came over him. This had been the woman he had been dreaming of, Aryana. When the panther ran away she was beautiful and magnificent. Xavior stood up and headed back to his farm. Safety is what he craved the idea that he was in danger on his own land worried him greatly. When he returned to his farm he found several of his birds dead.
Aryana returned home to find Adian waiting for her. She shifted back to her human form. “What do you want?” she asked coldly. “I was worried about you, just wanted to …” Adian was cut off by Damian racing down to her, picking her up and twirled her around. “Sorry, Ary I didn’t mean to make you runaway.” The pain in his eye prevented her from remaining upset. “It’s ok Ian, are you still mad at me?” She asked looking down at him, “No, Ary, I don’t want to be mad at you. You’re my only ally.” He said with a huge grin. She smiled “What happened while I was gone?” Damian looked at her “Adian grounded me and won’t let me leave, and Nina agreed with him.” She smiled “Why did they ground you?” he dropped his head “For making you runaway.” At Aryana’s horrified face, Adian stepped in “If I remember correctly someone tried running into the forest after Aryana.” Damian lifted his head up and stuck his tongue out at Adian. Aryana looked at him “Is this true? Did you try to runaway?” Damian dropped his head again “Sorry Ary, I just wanted you to come home.” She hugs Damian close to her “I’m not going anywhere kid.” The hug she got back just about crushed every bone in her body. The kid maybe young but he was strong.
Xavior started digging holes for his birds, when he heard the jeep approach. The man from before jumped out, “Looks like you got a wild animal on your hands neighbor.” Xavior looked at the man “Not at all neighbor. What I have is a trap on my land that I almost stepped on today. “There was a flicker of amusement on the guys face before a fake concern took over. “Oh no, we must have forgotten a trap out there.”Forgot a trap my ass, Xavior thought to himself “If you don’t mind could you please remove it, we wouldn’t want anyone to get hurt.” The man had a look of amusement on his face, which he could no longer hide. “Sure thing neighbor, not a problem.” As the men drove away. Xavior had a sinking feeling someone was going to get hurt and his fear was for that beautiful panther.
