The Last Tale to Tell: Chapter 7: Why, Oh Why
Why, oh why is it always me? Calicotail asks herself. Certainly she was smaller and more agile than any of them, but she wasn’t even that nimble. She had put up a fight, but in the end she had been forced to admit that she was more capable of this than any of them. After hours and hours, she finally had found a sort of camp, and had quivered at the edges trying to hear what the evil animals inside were saying. It was very scary, once she could have sworn one of them saw her, and this was not as easy as Striper and Gemfeather had anticipated. They didn’t seem to be talking of the date at all, but she finally caught it…they would attack in two days! She raced this information to the town, but another detail the others had overlooked was that the villagers were still in hiding. In a tree hollow, however, she entrusted this news to a red fox, and hoped he would spread the word. When she finally got back to the shore with the others, they were sound asleep, and in a moment, she was too.
