I opened my eyes after my mum woke me. Then she spoke softly.
“Come on Moonlight.”
Then I realise, Chase my brother and I are allowed to explore
“Come on slowpoke,” roars Chase.
I sprint after him. We walk through the forest, then we stop, terrified.
I heard them before I saw them.
Poachers and their boots crunching the leaves under them. They see us, Chase and I turn and run to the den as fast as we can, the poachers chasing us.
Our parents are in the den.
Chase and I slide in as the poachers disappear.
