Just a little something to entertain you...
The pounding of hooves shattered the forest’s peaceful silence. Birds and other creatures fled at the sound, it was definitely not something that belonged.
“Do you see her?” a deep voice called as the pounding came to a stop.
“Nope, no trace,” replied another voice, this time a bit higher than the first.
Two black horses stood in a forest clearing and sitting on their backs were two rather bulky men.
“We’ll never find her. She’s eluded us for weeks,” whined the higher pitched man.
“Don’t give up hope, Ley, she can’t hide forever. Eventually we’ll find ‘er and bring the criminal to the king. He’ll pay us good; we’ve got to keep searching,” said the other.
With no further conversation they rode deeper into the forest. In the shadows of the clearing sat a panther that blended in quite well. It twitched its tail, leapt into the trees, and was gone from sight.
