Vicki gasped. She was very, very tired. She'd now been keeping her hold on Nightmud and Rosey Ann for days. She needed a break, but she new that as soon as she'd let go, everything would be over. Vicki moved on, but tensed when she felt cats nearby.
Chapter 1: Found
I stuck to the trees, while Vantom moved through the bushes, invisible. Looking down into the clearing, I saw Vicki standing with Nightmud and Rosey Ann. With my family.
I tensed, preparing to spring. Suddenly, I heard Vicki mutter something, and Nightmud and Rosey Ann ran off.
That was it. I sprang.
Chapter 2: Pursuit
While I attacked Vicki, I saw Vantom run after Nightmud and Rosey Ann. "I'll break the hold!" He shouted, but I barely noticed. I was too busy clawing at Vicki's face. Her blood splattered everywhere, warm and runny. Vampire cat blood was a strange thing. We never ran out.
Vicki tried her best to defend herself, but she was tired. I clawed at her underbelly, spraying blood everywhere. That was when the cat attacked me.
A crimson and black she-cat sprang from the bushes and attacked me. I aimed a swipe at her, but my paw hit nothing but air. I turned around and saw the she-cat standing by Vicki.
"Marlina," Vicki breathed, "this is Jacklyn. One of my new Ancients. She can jump small distances in a matter of seconds." And that was all that she said before pouncing on the she-cat and disappearing.
Chapter 3: Reunion
I padded toward Vantom, who had Nightmud and Rosey Ann pinned.
"They won't stop moving!" He shouted.
I thought for a moment before making a tree crash down. Nightmud and Rosey Ann jumped out of their trances.
"Glad you're back," I said flatly, "but we need to talk."
