Arrow of the fox
A big creature, about as tall as two men standing on top of each other, was patrolling the outskirts of the canyon of Ofát. It was more commonly known as an oaf, and it looked disgusting, with its granite-coloured skin, very fat stomach, large, dirty feet and the slobber constantly running down its chin. It was dim-witted and either ate everything that moved, or captured it to be eaten later. Little did it know that it would soon be dead, he thought as he hid in the bushes, his arrow pointing directly at the oaf’s head. He fired, and the monster let out a painful moan, before tumbling over, lifeless. It’s just as slow as it is stupid, Tobiah thought, checking if the coast was clear. He crawled out of the bushes he had hid underneath, and cursed as his soft, bushy tail was caught between some branches. He untangled it, and put his trusty bow around his upper body.
Tobiah was part fox. His appearance was human, but he had fox-ears, whiskers that came out of the side of h

He opened his eyes slowly, and suddenly noticed where he was. On the top of a spire-like mountain, surrounded by a thick fog below his paws. Nothing else surrounded him that was possible to see, besides the occasional other spire sticking out of the fog. He blinked. Something was familiar about this, though he couldn’t quite put his paw on it. He looked up at the sky. The red glow of it showed that it was twilight. He sat down and looked at it for a while. Suddenly, he remembered where he was! He had been here before, not long ago. But was it…a dream? Could it even be a dream? It felt so real. He could even breathe in the thin air, though it somehow didn’t seem necessary.
  He looked at the sky again, and realized the same thing he had realized the last time he was here. There was no sun…or at least he thought so at first. Unlike last time, he had gotten a few more seconds to look around and think. In those seconds, he spotted the sun, though it was hard to

The creatures of day and night: Chapter 9
A little while later, the sun slowly began to set, as Eiken returned to the pond, carrying as many nuts and berries his small paws could carry. He wanted the predator to learn to eat normal food. As he got back to the pond, the canine was laying on his side, licking his paws. He looked up as Eiken approached, and his tail started slightly wagging. Eiken didn’t know if it was because of Eiken or the food he was carrying, but he still couldn’t help smiling back. He sat down in front of Lynatt and spread out the berries and nuts before him.
-See this? he said.
-This is the food we usually eat around these parts. None of us in the forest eat meat, like you did. We eat stuff like this, and now you’re going to do so too!
  He picked up an acorn (one of his personal favourites) and held it up in front of Lynatt’s face, who stared and sniffed at it. As Eiken led it closer to the wolf’s face, he squinted his eyes, trying to keep sight on it. He looked kind of

-No! What are you doing?! Stop it! Eiken, shouted as he ran forward and waved his front paws to get the wolf to stop eating. He stopped chewing and tilted his head, seemingly confused and curious.
-What have you done! You’ve killed it! he continued shouting, horrified at Lynatt’s clueless expression.
-Drop it now!
Lynatt obeyed at once, dropping the half consumed body to the ground. Eiken felt ill when he saw drops of blood spouting against the green grass. He had never seen such a thing. He had seen dead animals before, but they were never killed like this, and they weren’t half a body with dripping blood. He swallowed, with his eyes still wide open. It was hard pulling them away from the sight of the quadrant neighbour to look at Lynatt again.
-Don’t you remember a word I told you?! In this day and age, we don’t eat each other! That’s barbaric! You’re a barbarian! he shouted, not caring about if anyone could hear him or not. Lynatt laid his h

Building self confidence
Let’s start off by saying: building self-confidence is hard! I mean, incredibly hard! It may be one of the hardest inner battles you’ll ever fight! Because that’s what it is. A battle. An epic clash between truth and lies. I’m sure you know deep inside you what the truth is and what the lies are. And if you don’t, you’ll have to go work on it this instant! The truth is that you are valuable, and that you have an uncountable amount of positive qualities that you have to realize yourself. I’m splitting this into multiple steps I hope and think will work.
Step 1: Get up!
First things first. If you have trouble with your confidence, you probably don’t do much socially or maybe even physically. The first thing that has to be done in any situation is to get up from your chair, sofa or bed, where you likely spend a lot of time, and make a decision. Decisions are always the first things that will change anything. You make a decision all the time.

The creatures of day and night: Chapter 7
As they closed in on the chief’s home in a rabbit nest, Eiken left Pigg behind as he ran towards it, and in. He didn’t want this to last any longer than necessary. He was scared, because he didn’t know what to tell Roten. He couldn’t say that he had been spending time with a predator…could he? He started feeling unsure, but decided not to give the thought any time to grow.
  As Eiken approached Roten, he noticed that the hare was standing with his back turned, and his head low. Eiken stood up on his back legs and took a few careful steps closer. As he did, Roten started to speak, without turning around.
-Eiken, he simply said with a low, monotone voice. Eiken immediately became even more worried. He had never seen his leader as more than a strict, upright and maybe even emotionless one. But now Roten was standing there, with his back turned, looking like a thundercloud. Eiken was almost worried someone was dead.

The squirrel running across the trees barely had any time to gather his thoughts before he heard his name being called.
-Eiken! Eiken, are you there?
Eiken stopped, and looked down through the branches. He recognized this voice. It was kind of an annoying voice to him. It sounded way too young for it’s age. His theory was proven right as he recognized the figure too. It was Pigg, the small, brown, cowardly hedgehog. If there was one rodent that still wanted to hang out with Eiken, it was this kid. Eiken had a theory that for some reason, the hedgehog looked up to him. He decided not to let Pigg wait, and hopped down from the tree. His entrance got a little embarrassing, as he did like he always did when trying to jump down from trees, and hit the ground with face first.
-Eiken! You okay? the hedgehog shouted irritatingly loudly.
-Yeah, Eiken’s muffled voice answered. He got up as quickly as he could. The hedgehog, unlike Eiken, had always been unable to stand on two legs, m

The creatures of day and night: Chapter 5
He was standing on the top of a tall mountain. It was spire like, and there was just enough room for his feet. He looked around in hopes of recognizing something. Even if it was as little as a rock or a bush. But there were no rocks or bushes. The spire he was standing on had completely desolate surroundings. That is, they were impossible to see, due to the thick fog surrounding the spire. He was just above the clouds. Thus, the sky was completely clear above him. It was twilight. Not finding anything to look at besides the completely white distance, he steered his gaze to the blood red sky. To his surprize, despite the lighting, there was no sun to be seen anywhere. He barely had any time to be confused, before the scenery disintegrated around him, and he was swallowed by the emptiness, barely managing to remember the strange visions.
A small shiver went through Eiken’s body, from his head to his paws as he snapped out of the weird dream he had just witnessed. The first thing he

The creatures of day and night: Chapter 4
The little squirrel panted heavily as he ran with all he had upwards the hill with the heavy sound of predator paws behind him. Eiken was full of panic over what was happening. He didn’t even have time to wonder about what had just taken place back at the cliff. He just ran upwards, with his heart beating so hard he was afraid it might have popped right out of his chest. As he got closer to a thorn bush, he took a sharp turn to the left, hoping the beast might crash right into it. He heard a grunt behind him, and assumed the wolf had fallen for it. A couple of seconds later though, he could hear the furious bark of the canine right behind him, as he also heard the paws again. He sped up, even though he felt so tired of running he could pass out. He couldn’t keep going for much longer! The angry animal would eventually catch up to him. It was much faster. The only reason he had gotten this far, was because of his head start.

Eiken began to feel something. A chill breeze breaking through his fur and making him feel cold. He tried coiling his tail even tighter around him, but he couldn’t seem to find warmth. While shivering, he realized that he wouldn’t be able to sleep more with this. That moment, he remembered everything that had happened before he fell asleep that day. He remembered the weird happening he had witnessed as he tried enjoying a nice cone. He remembered the peculiar beast he had encountered, and felt a chill going through him, that was not because of the cold, when he though about the fact he couldn’t smell it.
  Just as he had regained all his consciousness, he sniffed out in the air and realized that it was now late evening. He assumed the other rodents hadn’t yet returned from their day with the birds in the eastern quadrant, because the only sound he could hear, was that of the wind blowing in the trees. Or…that’s what he thought at first. Shortly

Eiken tried sniffing in the dust particles that the wolf had whipped up in its fall. He didn’t get much out of it.
“What should I do?” he thought, feeling a little torn between reason and curiosity. He sat behind his rock, staring at the big animal for quite some time, before he made up his mind, and began approaching it very slowly on two legs. He was ready to turn around and run at any given moment in case the beast decided to attack. He continued to sniff, as he got closer. Suddenly he froze up in shock. He was unable to smell anything from the creature! He couldn’t smell where it came from, or even if it was male or female. How could that be?
  Suddenly, the wolf twitched its legs and grunted. Eiken quickly backed off on all four legs. His instincts told him to run, but at the same time, he didn’t see any reason when he couldn’t smell anything. So he just stood there, ready to react. The creature opened its pale, blue eyes, surprising Eiken

A big creature, about as tall as two men standing on top of each other, was patrolling the outskirts of the canyon of Ofát. It was more commonly known as an oaf, and it looked disgusting, with its granite-coloured skin, very fat stomach, large, dirty feet and the slobber constantly running down its chin. It was dim-witted and either ate everything that moved, or captured it to be eaten later. Little did it know that it would soon be dead, he thought as he hid in the bushes, his arrow pointing directly at the oaf’s head. He fired, and the monster let out a painful moan, before tumbling over, lifeless. It’s just as slow as it is stupid, Tobiah thought, checking if the coast was clear. He crawled out of the bushes he had hid underneath, and cursed as his soft, bushy tail was caught between some branches. He untangled it, and put his trusty bow around his upper body.
Tobiah was part fox. His appearance was human, but he had fox-ears, whiskers that came out of the side of his nose, and the previously mentioned tail. Other than that, his hair was short and red, his eyes green and his body tall. He was wearing a tunic as red as his hair, and brown sandals. He had just entered the land of monsters, and had a long journey in front of him.
Tobiah’s goal was Ósk, the wishing rock. And he had just killed his first monster. He knew this wouldn’t mean he was safe, because according to the people who didn’t make it to Ósk, or not even through the canyon, before returning, the canyon was crawling with more Ofáts like the one he had just killed.
Tobiah started to run in the direction of the closest rock. He hid behind it, checked if there were any oafs close by, then ran to the next. He had been trekking through the canyon for about ten minutes when he saw the next guard loafing about. Easy one! Tobiah shot this one in the back as well, and it fell to the ground, just as dead as the previous one. He wondered if the Ofáts tasted as disgusting as they looked, because he was growing hungry. Just when he was about to come out of hiding, he heard a roar that made the fur on his tail stand up. Another oaf had noticed its comrade’s death, and was now looking for the culprit.
It started to run around among the rocks, looking behind them. Tobiah had to take care of it before it reached him. He readied an arrow, and this time fired at the creature’s exposed chest. He hit bull’s-eye, and was quite pleased with himself, but hesitated when the oaf didn’t fall over, or even howl like the others before it. It growled angrily, and ripped the arrow from its chest.
Tobiah now despised these things even more than before, now that it seemed that they didn’t have hearts. How dared it? He had aimed perfectly and all! The oaf dragged its heavy feet towards him as fast as it could. But it couldn’t beat Tobiah, now could it? Tobiah braced himself, then jumped towards the oaf, landing on its gigantic stomach. Before its slow head was able to react, he climbed up to its shoulders. He didn’t think any of this was necessary. He could’ve just shot it from afar again, but this was way more interesting, and he was ready for some action now. The oaf furiously tried to grab him by the tail, but Tobiah swung it back and forth out of its reach as he climbed to the head, fired up and arrow and let it fly straight into the neck. He could see the tip come out of the chest, but this time he hadn’t aimed for the heart. The creature swayed, and tumbled towards the ground. Tobiah was ready. He jumped off just before it hit the ground, and landed elegantly. Finally some action.
But it took him about a minute, as he was catching his breath, to realize that he had just brought attention to himself. Five more Ofáts, all growling and sneering and patting their bellies, surrounded him. Tobiah couldn’t take on this many oafs at once. He figured the only thing he could do was run away. He was faster than them, so that shouldn’t be a problem. The bow around his upper body, he sprinted as fast as he could out of the canyon, with a biting feeling of disappointment. He could have done it! Why did he have to mess it up?

He had finally made it out of the land of monsters. His lungs ached from the exhaustion. Before him was a thick, treacherous wood. He leaned against a tree to catch his breath. Suddenly, he heard something that undoubtedly sounded like crying. Tobiah quietly and elegantly made his way towards the sound. He hid behind a tree at looked at the source. It was a half wolf boy, seemingly not much younger than himself. He had wolf ears, whiskers and a thick tail, everything grey, including his shoulder length hair. Like Tobiah, he was wearing a tunic that matched his colours. The eyes, barely within Tobiah’s sight, were blue and deep. Tobiah grew curious of this boy. He wanted to approach him. While keeping his sight on him, he came out from the shadows, his tail hanging low and his ears sticking up, as he sniffed in the scent.
“What is your name?” he asked. The boy looked up at him, and wiped his young face. There was a wrinkle on his forehead.
“Why do you bother? Leave me be!” the boy barked back.
“Because you’re crying alone in a wood”, said Tobiah, a humorous smile forming. “My name is Tobiah. Now that I’ve told you mine, you will have to tell me yours. It’s tradition.”
The wolf boy stubbornly stared back at him for a second, as if he tried to kill him with a gaze, then he gave up.
“My name is Azarel”, he said finally. “Now will you leave me alone?”
“Not yet, no. I’m just wondering what someone like you is doing in a deserted place like this. Are you alone?”
Azarel let out a small growl, but stopped himself.
“No. My sister is here too.”
“Why don’t you tell me the whole story?” cooed Tobiah. He was bored, and this seemed like it could be interesting. He sat down on the ground.
“No”, said Azarel.
“Then we can start with me. I am on my way to find Ósk, the wishing rock. Are you on a similar quest with your sister?” Now that he was interested, Tobiah wouldn’t be hard to shake.
“Don’t you mind other people’s privacy?” Azarel was growing grumpier.
“Just tell me”, Tobiah persuaded.
“Ok, fine! Yes, we are. Now go!”
“You might need some help”, Tobiah sneered back. “It won't be easy.”
It would be more interesting with some company, wouldn't it?

He opened his eyes slowly, and suddenly noticed where he was. On the top of a spire-like mountain, surrounded by a thick fog below his paws. Nothing else surrounded him that was possible to see, besides the occasional other spire sticking out of the fog. He blinked. Something was familiar about this, though he couldn’t quite put his paw on it. He looked up at the sky. The red glow of it showed that it was twilight. He sat down and looked at it for a while. Suddenly, he remembered where he was! He had been here before, not long ago. But was it…a dream? Could it even be a dream? It felt so real. He could even breathe in the thin air, though it somehow didn’t seem necessary.
  He looked at the sky again, and realized the same thing he had realized the last time he was here. There was no sun…or at least he thought so at first. Unlike last time, he had gotten a few more seconds to look around and think. In those seconds, he spotted the sun, though it was hard to see, because it was setting behind a gigantic mountain that seemed to be miles ahead of him. He had just thought about the fact that it was twilight, and had started looking for the moon, when the thick fog below him started to rise quickly, and consumed him so he couldn’t see. In one terrifying moment, he realized that the spire he was standing on had disappeared, and he fell into the darkness below him, for what seemed like and eternity.

  Eiken jerked awake. He looked around, the sweat on his forehead dripping. He had dreamt something startling, though he couldn’t remember what. He raised his paw to dry his sweat, but when he did, he saw something that made him jump. In a split second, he could see the fur on his paw going from bright yellow to red. Reflexively, he turned to look at the wolf he had been sleeping next to that night. He was still asleep, but Eiken though his fur looked a little lighter just the second he had turned around. Now it was back to dark coloured. He turned around again, wrapped his bushy tail around himself and leaned his back to Lynatt’s side, thinking.
  Now his fur and Lynatt’s had changed colours two times. And neither of the times had the sun been at the top of the sky. It was three days since the last time, when him and the wolf had gone to eat fruit. Eiken was wondering what it meant, and considering how it had never happened before he met the canine, it had to have something to do with that. Lynatt WAS a creature of Mune, and Eiken of course didn’t know much about the moon god, because of how much the forest animals disliked Mune. He was known as force that gave instinct, while the sun god, Sol, was the one that gave knowledge and higher understanding.
  It was true that Lynatt seemed to be more driven by instinct. He had even killed that rodent and eaten most of it. Eiken was still disgusted by that action, so much so that the hairs of his tail bristled at the thought. But even after that, he had been able to very easily forgive the wolf. In fact, he had been able to do it so quickly that it scared him. He turned his head and looked at Lynatt’s. He was still sleeping. Not too strange either, because it was in the middle of the night, but Eiken thought the wolf had jerked a little as well at the same time as Eiken awoke. Was he having nightmares as well? The squirrel put his paws behind his head and sighed, looking up at the stars. He could see them through an opening in the leafy ceiling of the forest above them. Deciding he probably couldn’t sleep anymore, he stood up, stretched and walked over to the pond. He washed his face, hoping to get rid of the sweat, and drank a little as well.
  Dead mosquitos were floating all over the surface of the water. The animals in the forest were all divided into the four Quadrants, but the insects never got anything out of consuming the Rain of Gold that had covered the land so many generations ago, so they were spread across, just as dim-witted as before. Even though it wasn’t considered immoral to eat them, everyone was disgusted by the thought of their slimy insides and lack of good flesh. But they were completely necessary for spreading pollen and making plants grow, everybody knew that. So they let them be.
  Eiken sucked in a mouthful of water and spat it out at the mosquitos. They began floating up and down along with the water. Eiken laughed a little. Though they had felt guilty afterwards, him and Trevinge had loved chasing insects when they played. Their childhoods together had been so magical. The times when Eiken could be away from his neighbours’ disapproving eyes, who for some unknown reason, had always seemed to be fixated on him.
  The squirrel climbed up one of the maple branches, and looked up through the leafy roof. Now he could see all of the forest clearly. Since he was higher up than the rodents’ living place, he could see the treetops that surrounded it a fair distance away. He sighed. It was not too long until he could go back, but even though he was looking forward to it, he was at the same time sceptical. There was something about this pond, this silence…this wolf, that made him want to stay. He shook his head. Of course he wanted to go back home! He had grown up there! His tree was very comfortable to sleep in, the sun could be seen from every angle, and the food was good.
  The more Eiken tried thinking about good things about his home, the less he could come up with. It had taken him a week away from it to realize, but…was he truly happy there? Even though he tried convincing himself about the opposite, he didn’t have any real friends there. Of course, sometimes they would get along, but then they would pick on him, before going back to being friends, and then picking on him again. They were way too abusive to truly be called his friends. He turned away from the view and looked at Lynatt, who was still sleeping. His legs and nose twitched as if he were dreaming. Eiken had realized another thing.
  He liked this beast after all. With the exception of Trevinge, this could very well be his only friend. Because now he had decided. Lynatt…was his friend. And the rodents, no, the whole forest wanted him gone. Eiken wanted to protect this canine. He couldn’t let anyone kill him! Lynatt was way too innocent. The wolf was well meaning, Eiken was sure of that. He was just naïve and instinctual. He couldn’t help what he was.
  Eiken looked back at his home, and thought: Do I truly want to go back after this week is over?

A little while later, the sun slowly began to set, as Eiken returned to the pond, carrying as many nuts and berries his small paws could carry. He wanted the predator to learn to eat normal food. As he got back to the pond, the canine was laying on his side, licking his paws. He looked up as Eiken approached, and his tail started slightly wagging. Eiken didn’t know if it was because of Eiken or the food he was carrying, but he still couldn’t help smiling back. He sat down in front of Lynatt and spread out the berries and nuts before him.
-See this? he said.
-This is the food we usually eat around these parts. None of us in the forest eat meat, like you did. We eat stuff like this, and now you’re going to do so too!
  He picked up an acorn (one of his personal favourites) and held it up in front of Lynatt’s face, who stared and sniffed at it. As Eiken led it closer to the wolf’s face, he squinted his eyes, trying to keep sight on it. He looked kind of uncomfortable, but mostly surprized. Eiken laughed slightly.
-Silly! As I said, you’re supposed to eat it! See?
Eiken led the acorn in the opposite direction, towards his own mouth, and quickly bit off the hat-like top of it with his very strong and sharp teeth. He proceeded to chew open the solid hull and ate the nut inside, licking his lips in delight. It had been a little while since he last ate acorn. It was so delicious!
-See? It’s good! Have a taste, he said, still licking his lips. He picked up another acorn, and opened it in the same fashion as the last, before he held it up to Lynatt’s mouth. The wolf sniffed it, and licked tryingly at the nut, before eating it in one bite. In almost the same instant, he spat it out, with a disgusted look on his face.
  Eiken was surprized. How could this animal not love the delicious nut?
-You’ll get used to it, he said hesitant, before picking up a walnut instead. He opened it, and took out the nut inside.
-Try this instead.
He held it up to Lynatt’s mouth as before. The wolf carefully took a bite of the nut, looking very sceptical. As soon as the nut came in contact with his tongue, he once again spat it out. Eiken was starting to get worried. If Lynatt refused to eat normal food, how was he going to survive? Eiken didn’t want him to eat the other animals in the forest. That was seen as barbaric, and Eiken agreed to that. With still a little hope, he picked up a blueberry, his personal favourite berry, and showed it to the canine.
-This is a blueberry. It’s very sweet and soft, and it tastes very different from nuts. Maybe you’ll like this?
Lynatt ate the blueberry. Eiken waited in anticipation, and to his surprize, the wolf didn’t spit it out. He chewed on it for a while, even though he could have swallowed it ages ago. Eiken started to smile. Lynatt had a thoughtful look on his face. Did he enjoy the taste? He swallowed, and licked his lips, and Eiken understood triumphantly that he had hit a good spot. He picked up a blueberry for himself.
-Did you like it? he asked. Lynatt nodded, before he lowered his head and gobbled down five more blueberries in three bites. As he ate a couple more nuts and berries (Lynatt had gobbled down some blackberries, and loved those as well), Eiken started to urn for some fruits. Fruit was the best snack Eiken knew. Nothing was sweeter than a freshly picked apple! He knew the perfect place to find those. He stood up, and Lynatt stopped eating, looking up at Eiken curiously and licking his now blue lips.
-You want more like this? I know a place where we can find even more delicious food!
  Lynatt eagerly stood up and stretched. Eiken started leading the way. The way there was full of thorn bushes and thickets. Eiken, with his small size and much experience, had no trouble crawling through them, but Lynatt got stuck multiple times, and the squirrel had to help him through the worst parts. The wolf got a few bruises from it, and whined all the way. Strangely, this didn’t annoy Eiken. He understood it was hard, but that the reward would be all the sweeter, and all the bushes kept the fruit and strawberries even more hidden. As they approached the end of the forest, where the trees and bushes started to thin out (they were in the north-eastern part of the Southern Quadrant), he felt those tempting and welcoming scents of sweet fruits and berries that only this very special edge of the forest could produce. Eiken and his best childhood friend, Trevinge had loved exploring these parts of the Quadrant, since it was so close to her home, the Eastern Quadrant, and one day they had discovered these special crops of apples, pears, plums, cherries, strawberries and other foods that the other rodents could only dream of. He hadn’t showed it to anyone. He had both strong memories with the place, and the Quadrant’s best food all to himself! But now he had felt a strange urge to show it to Lynatt. He couldn’t exactly explain why, because he didn’t understand why.
  Eiken darted out of the forest and over to the gigantic apple tree he always loved climbing and eating from when he played with Trevinge. Maybe it was because he had gotten lazier, but he hadn’t been to this place for quite some time. To his relief, it hadn’t changed a bit.
-Look! This here is the best place in this Quadrant for good food! You’ll love it!
Eiken ran up the tree to the middle of it, plucked an apple almost the size of himself and threw it down. Lynatt walked over and smelled it. Eiken threw down another apple, this one a little smaller, and jumped down to the wolf. He landed right on the canine’s back, who startled began to run around, jump and flail, trying to shake him off. He seemed to think that Eiken was something dangerous. Eiken laughed and did his best to hold on. This was fun! He really liked sitting there. Being thrown around like that almost gave him the same sensation as being tickled. Between his outbursts of hysterical laughter, he shouted:
-Hey! It’s me….Eiken…! Lynatt…! Stop it…!
Lynatt suddenly stopped, and Eiken collapsed on the soft, furry back, still laughing. The wolf turned his head to Eiken, looking a little worried, and gave Eiken’s side a little lick.
  As if someone had turned an invisible switch, Eiken stopped laughing, and dried his tears. He stared surprized back at Lynatt. That lick had triggered something in him, but he didn’t understand how or what. Suddenly he couldn’t help feeling so attached to this animal. But somehow, it felt like second nature. He stretched out his paw and stroked Lynatt’s forehead. As he did, the white oval on it glowed, but not as strongly as it had the night Lynatt had gone mad by the moonlight. The wolf seemed to like being pet. He bowed his head and closed his eyes. Suddenly, Eiken almost jumped. The white oval turned silver, and Lynatt’s fur began slowly turning snow white. As it did, Eiken noticed his paw glowing bright yellow. He quickly looked at the rest of his fur, which was glowing bright yellow as well. It usually only did this when the sun was on top of the sky. He quickly looked up a the sky, even though he knew the sun was setting, before looking down at himself again, startled by the suddenly warm feeling on his belly. The oval mark on his belly was glowing like gold. He quickly took his paw away from Lynatt. As he did, Lynatt’s fur turned back to dark coloured, and Eiken’s own fur turned back to red. Both of their spots stopped glowing and turned back to their regular colours as well.
  Eiken blinked. Lynatt opened his eyes and looked at Eiken, as if asking why he had stopped petting.
-Wh-what was that?! Eiken almost shouted. The wolf simply tilted his head. He seemingly hadn’t noticed the sudden change of colour. Eiken looked at his fur again. He didn’t believe he had just imagined it. It felt too real, and strange things had happened last time he touched Lynatt’s forehead as well.
-Wait a minute… he said. He slowly reached his paw out once again and touched Lynatt’s forehead. They waited. Nothing happened. What was this?!
The creatures of day and night: Chapter 9
Chapter 9: Food and fur
It took a long while to get going with this one, and for that, I'm sorry. But I hope you enjoy. Now I have most of the plot for the story planned out.

Sheng
My new character, Sheng. He's an anthropomorphic stealth-expert Stoat with hypnotic powers (the white pupil appears when he uses his powers, and he raises his left hand while doing so too. So I drew him! Tell me if he looks good or not. I might draw him digitally as well. What do you think? I'm pretty proud of this one. Took me days to make!

Bushi and Haru
My new characters. The brothers Bushi the Oshawott and Haru the Bulbasaur. These two are great friends, even though Bushi has a rash nature and Haru has a mild one. They look out for each others, despite not being of the same blood. Hope this art will showcase some of their bond! (Also, before you ask about Bushi's colours, he's shiny.)

Just a young, geeky, optimistic gal posting different stuff on here. It started with fan art for Ruby of Blue, but now I'm going more for the writer style. I'm writing a fantasy story called "The creatures of day and night". If you like fantasy or animals, be sure to check it out and give me some feedback (if you wish so). I also post other random stuff here and there, like short stories and even essays. Hope you'll like my stuff, and if ya wanna stay tuned on my story, give me a watch. It's up to you, my friend!
