PostSubject: Old Dogs Reminisce   Fri Nov 27, 2015 10:58 pm

First topic message reminder :

It was a cold winter night, and not a creature was stirring, not even a mouse. A fire crackled in the hearth, warming the small house. Four sleepy dogs huddled together, comfy and snug. It seemed all it took to be warm was a loving hug.

The family of four sat together in front of the fireplace, wrapped up in a big blanket, with Luke and Styla on either side of their parents. They both had fallen asleep quite some time ago, rendered drowsy by the warmth. Luke's head rested in Lina's lap, and Styla had Syntax as her makeshift pillow. While they slept, Lina and Syn simply leaned on each other, watching the fire crackle and flicker.
Eventually, Syntax carefully breaks the silence, quietly asking her wife, "Do you remember when we would sit together like this, before we decided to live with each other, Lina?"

Syntax starts to head back, but for a moment, hesitates, looking back after the girl with a thoughtful expression. However, it doesn't last long, and she soon heads back to town.

---

The next day, once more as promised, the woman walks through the forest, seeking Lina out this time.

She does not find her wandering around this time.

...I hope I do not seem too untoward, attempting to find her like this... She thinks to herself, ever keen on protocol. Regardless, she keeps at it, delving deeper into the woods.

It's getting harder and harder to follow any sort of trail, the area now just being a field of identical-loking trees.

Perhaps I should turn back... She thinks to herself, pushing a low branch out of the way. She stops for a moment and looks around, trying to take her surroundings in further.

As she looks, a small insect flies directly in fromt of her face, buzzing about.

Surprised, she stumbles backwards, and trips on a root. She falls to the ground with a light thud.

The insect flies away... Into the identical looking trees surrounding her.

She allows herself a small sigh. It was probably time to face facts anyways.

A faint sound can be heard from her side.

The sound gets closer and closer, and it appears to be... Something snarling.

She leaps to her feet, starting to back away and certainly gearing up to run.

Before she can, she can feel something pricking her leg, and it becomes quite difficult to lift it up, or move it at all.

She leans over, examining her leg in order to find the perpetrator.

A thorn-like object had penetrated her leg, and it appeared to be caused by a strange plant growing in the area. It was getting harder to move, or even think clearly.

Normally, she would be able to resist this sort of condition. Unfortunately, it seemed to grip her body as well as any spell.
She stumbles.

The source of the rustling becomes clear... A creature resembling a wolf, but made entirely of plants.

...What is that? Unable to stand and move, all she can do is wonder, and perhaps feel a small urge of self-preservation.

The creature prowls towards her, baring its fangs, its intent quite clear.

She tries to push herself away, but to no avail.

The creature moves closer and closer, seemingly drooling...

She tries to flinch, but can't even muster that.
