You missed her, didn't you? Come on...I know you did!
Finally, it was June! Denali had returned home from her travels in time to celebrate what the humans called "The Wild Chase." It was a holiday that her pack had celebrated for generations, and, one of her favorite holidays in all of Azorna. Through the Wild Chase, or "N'yaket," as her pack called it, Denali had learned the values of fair and friendly competition. Through "helping" her parents gather feathers, since she was always too young to join in the contest herself, she was taught the basics of stalking and pouncing on prey. She was also taught how to identify which feathers, and the scents they carried with them, were from dangerous birds and which were from prey animals. Needless to say, N'yaket holds a special place in Denali's heart. As such, Denali quickly rushed back to her den and threw on her pack's traditional holiday garments, specially made, both for her and for N'yaket, and rushed off to the marketplace to socialize and get into the holiday spirit. Impressing her friends was a nice bonus.
This year, she was going to enter the gathering contest. But first, she was going to have to find a safe place to put her cloak, since it would be cheating otherwise.
