.:Springtime Innocence:.~~~ Uchafu the tyro warrior! Chafu had been playing that in her head the entire day, dreaming of when she became a sentry tyro. Somdey it will happen.. Her thoughts had distracted her from he path that she had forgotten she was going to the waterhole. Instead she took a detour down to the border of the tribes..:Springtime Innocence:. by CheeTree
Kibanzi skipped along the border, her mom had been off hunting for herbs and she knew that nobody would miss her at camp so she decided to go on a walk. She chased after a little lizard, planning on catching it and eating it. How do lizards taste? We'll just have to find out, she said, grinning mischievously. She pounced, her paws landing on the little reptile. It scrambled out from under her paw, "Darn!"
Chafu halted her sauntering as she heard a noise across the border. She perked her ears and turned her head to the sound. She then caught sight of a cheetah, a small cub. Chafu grinned and fell back into a relaxed stance, hackles falling and tail wagging playfully. She had never
SAVANNAH 8Mom began to lick up the pieces of meat Mischana left and devoured them before my sisters entered the clearing. Heri was carrying the water plants again and Kami was carrying the fish.

"Actually...good point." said Heri returning to mother's aid. Whew!
We all feed mother and gave her water. She seemed to have a strong will to hang onto her life. Mom had started to perk up. She would talk m
SAVANNAH 7"Oh no you don't! You're not fooling me, Vittani! I'm going to stay here and wait for mom to get back. I'm going to behave!" exclaimed HeriSAVANNAH 7 by wolfofsecrets
"You don't understand! I think she's in trouble and she can't come for us! Besides, it's been two days and mom would never leave us this long!" Pleaded Vittani
"What if mom is testing us to see who is the most loyal? When mom comes back and sees me alone she'll know you abandoned me and that all along I was the chosen one!"
"You're being irrational, Heri." she paused and then said sarcastically "Mom already knows you're sooooo loyal she wouldn't test you."
Suddenly there was a shocked look on Heri's face. "Oh no! You're right...we need to go back to mom!"
"And it only took you two days to realize this. Personal record." said Kamili rather loudly. Vittani and Heri were shocked to see that the snide remark had come from Kami. It's very unusual for her to even talk. She was always very quiet.
