The Obelisk

Was in a bit of a hurry, sorry for any spelling mistakes! -Moon

-Chapter 11😁-

Forest whipped his head around, searching for a spot to hide.

“A thieving Deinonychus requesting assistance?” Spark asked. “No way.”

“Spark he needs us,” Forest said. “Let’s just help him hide. Over here.” He jumped forward to a fallen tree, carpeted in curtly long moss and vines. “Climb under.”

The deinonychus dove for the hidden spot, and Spark followed.

“Aren’t you coming?” Spark whispered, poking her head out.

“No. There’s not enough room in there.” Forest climbed to the highest boulder he could find and pressed his body against the rock. “Hide,” he called down.

As the crashing of talons came closer, Forest fixed his scales to the color of the grey -white stone. He felt his feathers and scales shiver, and soon enough he was well hidden. A Kaprosuchus burst from the forest.

She glanced around, sneering. Her fangs gleamed in the sunlight, and her tail thrashed the ground. Her smooth scales were the color of washed-out scarlet petals.

“Stupid Deinonychus,” she muttered. Forest held himself as still as he could. He hoped The other two were doing the same.

Then the Kapro whipped around and stomped back down the hill, and her tail disappeared in the bushes.

A few minutes later of hiding, the deinonychus burst out laughing.

“Wasn’t that great?” He exclaimed, rolling out from the hiding spot. Spark came out second, looking faintly amused. “I’m mean, her FACE when I grabbed that kill. And then—hah! Then you guys! I was THIS close to being a pile of bones.”

“That’s wasn’t funny,” Spark said. “It was thieving.”

“So worth it,” The deinonychus said, smiling with all his teeth. “Priceless!” He fell back into another fit of laughs.

“We have to go now,” Spark said. Forest climbed down the rock and stepped next to her.

The deinonychus turned to look at them, arching his eyebrows. “You are a… strange couple, don’t you think?”

“What?” The two looked at each other. “No!” They said at the same time. “We’re just wandering,” Spark said.

“We have to save the world.” Forest said directly after. Spark whacked him with her tail. “What?”

“Save the world?” The deinonychus asked, standing up. He set down the chunk of meat, looking intrigued. “Gee, I wish I could save the world. That be great!”

“So that you’re loved and no one will care that you steal things?” Spark guessed.

He opened and closed his mouth a few times, then perked up. “Can I tag along? Just for a few days?”

“What?” Spark exploded. Forest gave her a look. “Why?”

“We’ll you guys and your ‘wandering’ might be fun!” He said. “So can I?”

Spark turned to Forest. “What do you think?” She asked him.

“Hmm,” Forest looked to the desperate feathers dinosaur. He’s a thief, Forest thought, but he want a a second chance. Maybe he can change. “He can come along.”

“YES,” The deinonychus said, hopping from foot to foot. “What are your names?”

“I’m Forest and this is Spark,” Forest said, turning to the Carnotaur. “You?”

“The names Rust,” the deinonychus said, letting out a side smile. His blue-orange feathers swayed in the breeze.

“Alright then,” Spark said. “Let’s go.”

“To fulfill a prophecy,” Forest said, following.

“To save the world!” Rust bellowed. “Hooray!”
