Leopard made her way up the twisting path out to the open again. The sun was almost to the middle of the sky, it was early evening. Cold wind blasted through the trees and ruffled her fur. Noticing that it was slowly getting darker with clouds she sprinted forward.
The scents around her were a bit different then it hit her.
Wait. Oh no, I`m outside of Smoke`s territory. The dogs!
Finding Smoke`s scent was hard at first through her quickening heartbeat but she forced herself to concentrate and soon she found his scent.
She followed it all the way to what must be the border of his territory, for she caught a multitude of scents through the trees.
Keeping her distance she tried to feel for heavy pawsteps or disgusting recent dog scents but found nothing. Maybe they haven't patrolled over here in awhile? All she smelled was distant dog scents.
Dashing forward she made it past the border in a heartbeat and panted, slowly calming her beating heart down.
I have to tell Storm what happened.
