The sun had risen a few hours ago but you couldn't tell that right away. The forest was thick and the trees were tall, blocking out much of the light unless you walked into a clearing or climbed to the top branches of a tree. The birds were chirping and the squirrels and other day creatures were running around, gathering food and surviving. The man walking down the well-worn path through the forest was not alone, although he had no companions. The figure up in the trees crouched down and watched. An elf? No pointed ears. Certainly not an orc. Rain moved a bit closer. His back was to her and if she waited any longer, he'd be too far away. She had to know what he was! She crouched a little lower ... focused ... And then jumped, allowing all the energy she'd built up free! She pounced on the man and managed to get a hold on him but it wasn't down yet.
