Sacred Forest - Round 3 - Page 4When Eyespot woke up, she heard singing.Sacred Forest - Round 3 - Page 4 by Miirik
The gray cat’s ears twitched as she lifted her head, blinking groggily and stretching. She blinked in confusion. What--where am I?
She scanned her surroundings to get her bearings. She was in the cool shade of a squat brick building, under an open window the singing was drifting from. She listened curiously before standing up to observe more closely.
She stretched against the concrete and leaned against the wall and peered inside the building.
There, two creatures adorned with scarves sat. They both had long necks and tails. One was very pale with a dark mane and scarf, listening contentedly to the other. The other was almost half of his height; she was light fulvous in color and covered in freckle-like umber spots. Her scarf was a vibrant emerald shade, matching her eyes.
Huh, the tall one looks sort of familiar. Weird.
Eyespot leaned to get a better look and immediately regretted the strain she’d put on her hind leg.

SF Round Four - page 4Meka swung his tailSF Round Four - page 4 by Cloudbat
It clipped Allele as she dodged
Her moment off-balance
Allowing him to strike with his paws
His attack cut short as she grabbed at his scarf
With rage sung into her she tore it apart
The Keino's shriek shook bone and wood
He madly struck at Allele however he could
Pain restoring her mind, she desperately flew -
It hurt, but there was nothing else she could do.
Seconds later she crouched on a pile of skulls
Several feet above where her foe now was.
Kill her, kill her
Urged Meka's song-strengthened voice
You know you have no other choice.
A canine ear close by heard
Became concerned at the voice's words.
The Keino felt his agony subside
As he was wrapped with slender vines
They stopped his wounds' bleeding and drank his pain
The wordless song coursed through his veins.
The vines came to the hybrid as well
Only for her wounds' blood, not to heal with a spell
Do you see how much you were mistaken?
Give in now and die with grace
Let Meka win this final r
SF Round Four - page 3As Allele came upon the new growth of branches and vinesSF Round Four - page 3 by Cloudbat
A gray creature watched her from behind.
Warily, as she'd seemed insane
The first creature he'd set eyes upon
Since he'd been shut away.
Allele's antennae told her he was there
She did not look back - she didn't much care.
Gazing upon shimmering-veined stems
Slowly the woman began to ascend
Wishing to fly only if she must.
A crack resounded
Front legs splayed to knock his foe down
Allele moved too slow
Hooves failed to go
The Keino crashed into her side
His aim impaired by his blinded eye.
The hybrid fell in a flailing sprawl
She tried; she could barely move at all.
The white-furred male struggled to stand, surprised
At the toughness of his opponent's hide.
Shakily he unsheathed his claws
Allele's tail flicked - the spike cut at his jaws
He shrieked in pain - she inched away
More suffering was not what she'd wanted today.
Two pairs of blue eyes met for a breath
Neither wanting another death
Their hesitation amused th
SF Round Four - page 2Her tail cut the grass as it swept back and forthSF Round Four - page 2 by Cloudbat
Her blue eyes shone with pain in the light of dawn
What reason did she have to even go on?
Down on her hands and knees she wondered why she still drew breath
Perhaps she should stop and sink into death.
Send herself the way others had gone.
You are not allowed to die yet.
There is much to be done.
"Dercas said...you are a god.
You've been talking to me, all along."
You are the worst of those wandering free.
Yet you alone can hear me.
A revolting irony.
"I would serve you! I've looked for you my whole life!"
You looked for a way to comfort your pain.
You looked and you craved for power to gain.
You looked for a way to not be alone
What else could you be, you eater of flesh and dispenser of bones?
"You...you feed on the dead too. Kego'ka...Al'tun..."
You killed them. I must feed my roots.
Does a god not deserve tribute?
"So the wish...just a sham?"
SF Round Four - page 1The Keino muttered to himself - "One more fight."SF Round Four - page 1 by Cloudbat
Then he would use the wish to set everything right.
He had promised Milly so.
Yet how he would do it, he didn't know.
Dreams no longer held as much of an appeal
Still he wasn't quite sure how to feel
About not being able to use such an opportunity for himself.
Camilla out of habit kept trying to fly
To no avail; no longer hers was the sky.
"Daddy...what are you going to ask Dercas for?"
She asked the Keino, staring at the forest floor.
Her tail twitched in worried unease
Brown and white pelts were ruffled by a breeze.
"I...I don't know. To take everyone home?"
He winced at how weak that was - he didn't want to return to his own.
"I don't think that's it..." The Abstraction replied.
"Maybe...bring the dead back to life?"
Meka looked away, remembering Dancing Leaves.
Doubtless there were several others who'd come to fatal grief.
Could Dercas reverse that? Did he dare to ask?
All of this depended on winning - his final task.
One last fight

Mortal shivered and took a step, then another. In his mind, old memorys drifted up, so old he did almost not know that he still had them.
'A wanderer, that's what I am. A passenger in my own life. Never at home... A demon. An Exile.' He thought bitterly, as he walked beneath the trees, whose trunks threw long shadows across his back. His thoughts strayed in another direction, maybe because of the sense of magic, he got a little wistful.
'Life...' Mortal said aloud, then continued the trail of thought in his mind. 'What is a mortal life to a demon? What does that make me? Do I even have a soul?' His ears drooped for a moment at that. Then he shook himself and continued on his way.
Suddenly, a little cyan ball of light was floating in mid air, right infront of him, and it seemed to Mortal, as if there was a faint voice, like the rustling of leaves, and it whispered something... "I... can offer an escape!" And there she was, face to face with him,
Sacred Forest Round one Part twoA smallish brown creature swam through the air like a fish in water, seeming very happy. She giggled and flew lower, down to a white fox looking creature with a black mane and dark blue scarf. He, as opposed to the brown creature didn't look very happy. He looked focused.Sacred Forest Round one Part two by Lunaterasu
“Would you quiet down, Pest!?” He snapped up at the giggling female.
“But Dadd-y!” She whined and landed in front of her father.
“For the last time…” The white creature began through clenched teeth. “I am not your Dad!”
The small, brown creature pouted.
“Fiiiiine…Mekaa…” She spat the last word out in a deeper, mocking tone. “But I like Daddy better.” She mumbled to herself
Meka sighed. Sometimes he just couldn’t take this creature…
“Daddy, I’m bored! Can we play a game while we look for this intruder?” the creature begged as jumped back into the air.
Meka gave her a look, but the
