"The wind blew gently against their faces bathed in moonlight as they stared at the dimly lit clearing before the King's palace. Only the rustling leaves of the forest around them made a sound. "We'd better head back, Rouge. The Watch will be here, soon," Falcon said. Rouge looked over at his friend. "I know. Let us say a small prayer before we go," he replied. They both closed their eyes and kneeled at the bloody scene before them for a few minutes, and then they quickly stood up. They both jumped in unison at the sound of hounds in the distance. "Hurry, we have to go now!" Falcon commanded, grabbing Rouge by the arm and jerking him into a run. As Rouge took one last glance at the view, he caught a glimpse of a person standing on the steps of the palace. He couldn't make out her face in the moonlight, but he didn't have time to waste.
