Cato prowled through the forest by his village, taking his time
since he has to go back and train more with his father , the
alpha wolf. The wind blew towards him, bringing with it the
scents of many things and..the scent of a cat...? He growled and
quickly took off threw the forest after the scent.
Lisa's ears twitch and she looked up at the trees as the wind
blew through their leaves. She sniffed the air and her thin fur
rose. She could smell wolf and it seemed to be getting closer.
She hissed and ran to the nearest tree before climbing it with
her awkward feet. She wasn't used to trees or the shadows. She
was used to the open space of the desert and the fowl stench of
dirt and rotting flesh at the slave market where she was kept.
Cato barreled out of the foliage and looked up. He sniffed the
air and grinned and ran to the tree Lisa had climbed up. He
growled and jumped up at her. "Here kitty kitty kitty!" He said.
She hissed down at him and climbed higher. "Go away you mut!"
She yelled down at him. He just laughed and jumped at her, just
barely missing her tail. "why should I? your in my territory!" He
said to her circling the tree. "you will have to come down
eventually" He smirked and leaned up against the tree. "Ha! no I
don't. I'll just kill what ever comes my way" She said hugging
the branch she was on. "You will have to release waste so you
will still have to get down" He said crossing his arms. "Maybe
I'll just pee on your head" She said smirking down at him. He
scowled moving away from the tree to look up at her. "If you do
that ill just climb the tree and pull you down." He said running
at the tree jumping a bit higher making her move further along
the branch away from him. She tried to sit more balanced but her
hands and paws weren't used to the surface of the tree and
slipped. She hisses and tried to pull her torso back up but she
couldn't, for lack of upper body strength. Cato grinned and
stared up at her. "Come on, fall already!" He said excitedly.
She growled and curled in her feet and tail. "shut up mut! I'm
not going to fall" She said but it was sort of to late to say
that. She heard something crack and her eyes went wide, the
branch snapping from her weight. She shrieked and landed on her
back, knocking the breathe out of her. Cato grinned at her but
didn't make a move towards her. Lisa quickly rightened herself
and growled at him.
Her tail swished back and forth as she glared at him. "What are
you waiting for?" She said to him but he just smiled. "Do you
want to play?" He asked her. It caught Lisa by surprise making
her stare at him."..wait what? ...play?" She asked him and stood
there confused. "Yeah! Have you ever played before?" She shook
her head. "No. I haven't. Only thing ive played was chase with
trablin guards." She said to him. "Oh. That's what we call tag."
He said smiling happily. " oh. Well i guess we could play..tag"
She said smiling a little. Cato smiled widely and wagged his
tail. "Great!" He said. She frowned for a second before poking
him and taking off. "But your it!" She yelled as she ran past
He grinned and quickly followed after her gaining fast. "I'm
going to get you!" He said. She looked back at him then back to
the forest in front of here. "I don't think so!" She yelled back
and sped up her speed. But Cato just matched her speed and caught
up with her. He tapped her on the shoulder and sped past her.
She laughed and chased after him. "Your lucky your legs are
longer then mine!" She said to him. He laughed at her and looked
back at her grinning. There was a sudden sound of a loud snap and
Cato was thrown up into the air by a huge net. Lisa's eyes grew
wide and she stopped running. "..oh god..please tell me they
aren't here.." She said to no one in particular. She ran over and
pulled at the netting trying to pull it loose. "Hurry! Please get
me out!" He yelled, thrashing around in the net. "Shh! If
Trablins are near they will find us!" She said to him as she
pulled down hard on it. There was a sudden noise, and birds flew
screeching. Lisa looked around. "..crap.." There was some shouts
and a band of Trablins come stomping threw the foliage. "Seems we
actually caught something interesting! And look! A purple cat.
Bet shes the one that escaped" Stated the head Trablin. Lisa
hissed at them, folding back her ears and fur rises. "Go away you
scum!" She shouted at them. "I don't think so. Technically, you
belong to us and he will soon enough" He said walking over to
them. Lisa jumped at him but she was just knocked aside. Cato
growled. "Leave her alone!" He yelled at them. A few other
trablins walked over to cato and let down the net but kept him
inside. Lisa hissed and glared over at him. "Let him go you
fiend!" She said, fixing to leap but is stopped by a meaty hand
grabbing the back of her neck making her squeak. The trablin
picked her up and held her there by her neck. Suddenly there was
a howl and wolves come running, some jumping at the trablins,
pushing them away from Cato. A huge black wolf walked over and
untangled Cato from the net and helped him up. "Father.." said
Cato but his father didn't respond just looked at the trablins
and growl. "You are on my territory! Leave at once or face our
rath." He said. Lisa hissed and lashed her tail back and forth as
the trablin squeezed down. "Ha! We can't. That boy and this
mixed blood bitch is our property now,Alpha!"said the Trablin
leader. Cato growled and looked at his father. "Father, shes my
friend." He said staring at his father with a glare. His father
just looked at him then at the Trablin leader. "I dont think so"
He said and jumped at the trablin, tackling him to the ground and
biting at his throat. The others started attacking the trablins.
Some fled, in fear of being killed like the one holding onto her
neck. He dropped her to the ground and tried to run but he was
tackled by two wolves. There were deep screams coming from all
around them for a moment before it all stopped. Lisa rubbed the
back of her neck and looked up at the sound of someone walking
over. Cato leaned down and helped her up, concern clear in his
yellow eyes, that stood out on his black face. "Are you ok?" He
asked her. She nodded "Yeah I am" she said smiling a bit. He
smiled tightly and looked at the Alpha. "Um..this is, uh...I'm
sorry, but what's your name?" Asked Cato feeling ashamed of not
asking her before. "Oh, my name is Lisa. I don't think you told
me your name either." She said raising her dark eyebrows. He
chuckled a little. "My name is Cato, Son of the Alpha."
