Hunting part 2A Chapter by Alice
"Nalah!" I screeched. "Get of a me." my voice came out muffled. The giant wolf complied, slowly steping off of me. Nalah was a beatiful animal. She was a silvery black, with a white chest and above her right eye was a tuff of white fur that was shaped like an N. The name Nala means gifted in Swahili. But I've always pronounced it N-A-L-AH not N-A-L-A
"You mangy mut you!" I ranted " You costed me that rabbit." I've been tracking the white rabbit for three days now. I wasn't as if I need it to surive or anything. But some thing just compeled me to. The first time I'd seen the rabbit.
Me and Nala had been out since dawn tracking down a hurt doe. I don't usually like shooting does' with my bow. But I couldn't just leave her to wander the woods. I would rather shoot her my self then leave her for the mercies of the Thalwhas and Hellhounds. Thalwahs are like a giant lion with the strips of a tiger. They have talons the sized of a groan mans foot. And they are cruel creatures, they tear their prey apart and feast on their hearts and eyes. Only the heart and eyes. And that is a cruel punisment that no one should suffer. Expecialy not a gentle doe.The Hellhounds are giant black wolfs that are souposedly the devils "puppys". And they aren't any better they kill you without eating you. Then they take your souls and devor them. You'll be stuck in an eternaly hell if they do that. Your soul doomed to wander forever inside of and Hellhounds stomach.
So I tracked her down and found her resting near a little pond. She was there, but she wasn't alone. There was a white rabbit there too. I thought that I could probably take the doe and then the rabbit. I slowly reached behind me and grabed a bow from my quiver. I slowly notched it into my bow. Leaving my crossbow leaned up against a tree a few yards back. It was too noise and would probably scare the rabbit away. And it took more time to load.
I edged closer and finaly chose the perfect spot behind an old willow tree it's droping branches would give me good cover. I pulled back the string and amid right in between her eyes. Twang. The bow string let lose and the arrow soard true. The doe head drop to the ground and it was still. I reached for another arrow and amided it at the rabbits heart. Twang. The arrow percied threw the air and then a foot from the rabbit it bounce as if it hit a wall of some sort. The rabbit look staight at my hiding space. And winked at me. Winked! Then it jumped away.
