Nervously, the cream-colored wolf nodded to her companion. She could see the little unassuming hole the rabbits were hopping in and out of. Carefully she made her way to her position as Dune instructed. It’ll take a second for me to figure out where the best angle for you to head will be, and then you’ll have to swing around in a wide arch, keeping low and quiet. When you’re ready, just charge, and try to drive them my direction. The instructions bounced in her head and Kalea followed them as closely as she could. She very slowly, very quietly walked around the perimeter of the rabbits’ land. They looked so peaceful, munching on grasses and grooming one another. Momentarily Kalea was reminded of home.
Once she got to where she thought was the right spot, she stopped and tried to look at Dune for approval. The rust-hued wolf was covered by grasses and so well hidden, she couldn’t see her at all. Kalea was all on her own.
Her heart was pounding heavily against her chest and she was absolutely terrified. She watched and waited, holding until what felt like the perfect moment. Kalea could see almost all of them were out in the field, far from their little hole, which seemed like the perfect opportunity.
She flew from her hiding spot. Her first few steps were clumsy and the little prey animals immediately turned their heads. Once they started to run, Kalea’s natural instincts took over. Snapping and charging, she chasing them towards where she knew Dune to be waiting.
