  1. A large creature moved through the brush and emerged on the opposite side of the field…

  2. He stood on his hind legs and bowed to the young girl.

  3. .. was he waiting for her … she so tiny, needed his comforting hands to lead her through the cold snows …

    Cheers Hilary

  4. Something tangled in the thicket, something hurt lay on the edge of the tree line. She took a single step toward it and the creature stilled, watching her with dark eyes through pain.
