The Tiger's Tale: Chapter 9: The Signal
When Striper goes back to the evil creatures to lead them into the trap, he feels very confident. As he leads them towards the spot, he wonders if he will ever be able to go back to his old life when this is done. They near the clearing. Striper tells them “We’re almost there. We just need to go a bit farther.” An owl notices a small leaf twitch. He looks suspiciously at Striper. “Oh, just the wind I expect,” the nervous tiger replies. The leaf twitching means that the other animals were there, awaiting his signal. He walks 20 paces and says “We’re here!” Those words were the signal. The trap has been sprung.
