The slick patch of ice was unexpected. Lee had nearly slipped on it. That was how she’d found it. The swath of old snow that had been melted down by the sun during the peak of the day at some point, only to freeze again as the shadows from the trees around the clearing had reached for it once more.
It was bumpy and uneven and surrounded by crunchy snow all around, but as it turned out… sliding was fun. When you meant to do it.
“AAAAH!” she shrieked as she made another run for it, lifting her paws high in a jump that came down hard on the snow. Threatened to crack the surface of solid ice beneath her considerable weight, but it held, and she half-crouched as she spun in around to face the other direction, all without moving her legs.
When she stopped, her legs were rigid and her smile was wide, and with a fumbling sense of enthusiasm, she backed off again to give it another run.
She was going to play slip and slide until the dang thing gave away to pieces under her weight. She practically danced as she played her personal game.
