Welcome to the end of the adventure. Readers have chosen to stay with the cats instead of searching for the dragons even if the cats are lying. Let’s see what happens.
Beings of the Lovely Hills Option Bb1: Stay Put
“Sound like you just want to eat the cats,” you say. “Why should I trust you?”
The wolf snorts. “Trust a wolf? You’d be stupid to trust me.” His lips pull up in a toothy grin. “Of course I’d like to eat the cats but they’d give me indigestion. Their kind always do. Beside, if I’m going to put such an effort into it, I’d rather have a rabbit. Rabbits are far tastier than those two rascals.”
“Then go hunt rabbits.”
“All right. But don’t say I didn’t warn you.”
And the beast disappears into the willows. You stay awake for a while, listening for movement but the wolf doesn’t return and you eventually drift to sleep. The sun’s beating down on you when you wake. Stretching, you look around.
The cats are still curled around their egg, content in their slumber. They’ve stretched out but that’s about all. Your stomach rumbles but you quickly forget about your hunger when you hear the heavy whoosh of large wings.
In the sky two beasts appear winging in circles. One has the dark black scales you figure Nightwalk must have and the other glints silver. They’re obviously flying together, searching. You start to second guess your decision to help the cats.
Then the dragons dive, having spotted you.
“Run!” you shout, pushing to your feet and taking off through the willows. The cats screech behind you but you don’t look back.
The wolf must have been telling the truth, for the two dragons were definitely working together. Nightwalk’s not the enemy the cats told you he was.
But it’s too late now. You hear the whoosh of great wings and feel the push of air from them. You dodge to the side but the dragon’s tail lashes out, tripping you. You roll and come to your feet again to keep running but again that giant tail smacks into your legs. Rolling over, you put your hands up in surrender but the dragon doesn’t give you time to explain.
I’m sorry to say your story from here is rather sad.
Once the story comes out, the dragons realize you were an innocent pulled into the cat’s schemes but by then, of course, it’s too late. However, they do sneak out of the Lovely Hills to leave your family a basket of fruit. The dragons heard somewhere that’s what you do for humans who loose a family member.
Unfortunately the ending didn’t go so well but may you have better luck in the next adventure. And hopefully you’ll have a restful weekend=)
