BloodfangLiving in the barren wasteland that was formerly a jungle,I stalk the scarce, unsuspecting prey,my belly moaning like the breeze through the willows.Closer, closer I approach,placing my grafted paws lightly,wind whistling through my fur.The rabbit stops.It looks at me.But by then it's too late.I quickly pounce and bite its neck, killing it,savoring the warm, juicy blood flowing freely down my chin.Bloodkit
DeafnessSilence. Empty silence.No shaking of the leaves.The wind never whistles,No rustling of the trees.Alone, just by myselfan island in the sea.Not a sound to hear,population: me.
PersonificationA mouse sat in front of me. In the roots of a beech tree, it nibbled. I lightly placed my paws down, one in front of another. It didn't see me. I sneaked closer, shifting my weight to three paws, as I moved the other forward, then repeated the ritual. I was almost there. I shifted all my weight equally, as I prepared to pounce. The mouse looked at me, unmoving. Easy food, I thought, as I tightened my haunches. The mouse made an odd sound, a growl of sorts. This is odd... I thought, and blinked.I was in my nest, squeezed up against Featherkit, Cloverkit, and Goldenstep, with my stomach yowling at me. All I'd eaten the night before was a scrawny lizard. Maybe I should sneak out and get some food...? No, I can't. I may be a kit now, but in under a quarter- moon, I'll become an apprentice. I should break my habits of eating before anyone else is awake.I wouldn't miss Featherkit moving around throughout the night and kicking me in the side, or waking up pressed against Goldenstep's side w
PerspectiveI was just squeezed from a very small space, into a very big one. It was cold, it was hard, and something dry was rubbing the soft, downy material that apparently covered my form. It was rubbing the stuff backwards, and it felt bad.There was an uncomfortable feeling in my chest, and from somewhere below it. On impulse, I opened my mouth, and something cold and insubstantial whooshed in, filling the emptiness in my chest. The place below it still felt hollow.Something sharp pressed into a fragile layer of [skin] along something hard at the base of my neck. I squirmed uncomfortably as it lifted me off the hardness. The sharp pressure placed me down on something soft, warm, and slightly wet.I tried to stay upright, but collapsed. Something cool, hard, and covered in a thin layer of the same fluffy downy stuff as I was nudged me near something else; something warm and squishy. I pressed closer to the warm squishiness, having to squirm my way between two fluffy, small, wet things like me
ConceitedConceited. I've heard that word a lot lately.Wondering why people seem to choose "conceited" of all words to describe the act of thinking highly of one's self, I look it up.Conceited can mean boastful, and thinking highly of one's self, however it can also mean 'whimsical,' 'intelligent,' or even 'having an opinion.' Therefore, I am highly conceited (using this in the 'having an opinion' sense).When I originally looked this word up, I also had the intention of finding synonyms, so I could not have to hear or read the word 'conceited' many, many... many times. What ever happened to the good ol' terms of 'loudmouthed,' 'vain,' 'narcissistic,' 'swollen-headed,' 'audacious,' 'pompous,' 'swaggering,' and, my personal favourite, 'high-muck-a-muck?' How did conceited get so high and mighty? Why must it be the term all use now?Synonyms, they add variety to language. Rather than saying, "The train is big," you could say, "The train is humongous," or use a simile and say "The train is as lon
