This is not a true story, imagine someone new to ark who knows nothing about this game and tames a few dinos .
They then go walking through the woods somewhere on some map with the ferox and find one they then attempt to tame it thinking it's much like a jerboa they already tamed , then it. Brutally kills them .
She squinted at the ravager for a moment. Renegade, her mind muttered.
The memories came back to her in an instant. With that, came a sharp pain in her shoulder. She growled at the arrow that protruded from her shoulder. One quick movement, and she had ripped the now bloody arrow out of her shoulder. Blood trickled from the wound it had made. She breathed. Humans were so stupid. Believing a mere spiked stick could hurt her.
Renegade continued to bark at her. She resumed paying him no mind. The arrow rested in her hand. She debated what to do with it. A fanged smirk reached her face as she looked down at the arrow, before hurling it straight toward a human. The arrow burned through the human's weak flesh. It fell over, its blood staining the white snow.
Ferra looked around. The fight continued. She stared at the female human with the glasses. The one whose voice she had hard in her head. Said human, was surrounded by others, each carrying a spear that faced outward. She was something to be protected according to these humans.
Renegade yelped, Ferra ran toward Racheal. The humans attempted to stab Ferra with their metal spears. She easily tossed them out of her way. A few other humans began to yell at this. Ferra took no notice of them. Ferra leapt toward Racheal, shifting to her smaller from midair. Racheal turned her head toward Ferra, but did not have enough time to react. She watched, a slight fear in her eyes, as the ferox came toward her.
Ferra grasped for Racheal’s shoulder and scrambled up before she could be thrown off. Without hesitation, Ferra grabbed at the base of Racheal’s neck. Ferra’s claws dug into the delicate human flesh, she ripped out the purple glowing piece of element that had been lodged into Racheal’s neck.
Racheal froze. A gasp caught in her throat. Shock pulsed through her body. Racheal felt reality slip from her grasp as she began to collapse.
Despite the fact that she was falling with the Racheal, Ferra sighed in relief. Everything felt like it was in slow motion. That feeling left her as she felt something hit Racheal, or maybe it she had been hit? She wasn’t sure. The last thing Ferra remembered was the sound of something being ripped- flesh maybe? And the feel of her scruff being grabbed.
Racheal looked around. She didn’t have her glasses on, yet she could see everything clearly, but despite that, she had no idea where she was. Everything seemed to have a bluish hue to it, and she was floating in some kind of void. Pieces of…what looked like metal floated around her. The whole thing kinda reminded her of a computer.
“Hello!” A friendly sounding voice chirped. “Not sure what happened-“ a little robot zoomed into her line of sight. “-Lost track of you for a little bit I suppose. Not quite sure how that happened. No matter! Dying seemed to do the trick! Because look! I found you again!” Although not having a face, or a mouth, and only seeming to have one eye, or something like one in the center of it, the robot looked like it was smiling. “I guess that’s the wonderful thing about the Genesis Simulation. You can die over and over again and always come back!” It explained.
Racheal was confused, and had many questions. “…Simulation?” Racheal ,she managed to choke out. The robot looked…confused? “I thought you knew…?” The robot paused. “The Genesis Simulation is what you’re in right now!” Racheal continued to stare confusedly at it “The Genesis simulation? Why- Why am I in it?” The robot continued to look cheerful, at least up until Racheal asked that question. “I- I don’t know” it replied. That was very reassuring Racheal thought.
“What are you? And- What was that you said about me dying?” Racheal prodded, steering away from the topic of why Racheal was in the simulation. The robot went back to being cheerful “I’m HLN-A, and it is my job to assist you throughout the Genesis Simulation. You are also currently dead” It answered excitedly. Racheal was even more confused now. “Well how do I…come back to life?” The words felt childish in her mouth, but they were the best for describing her situation. “Well that’s the easy part!” HLN-A responded.
Ferra’s eyes blinked open. She quickly noticed that she was in a small nest-like pit in the snow. The snow was thick enough here to do that, wherever here was. She laid there for a moment, before deciding to lift her head up so she could look around. Renegade was sleeping closest to her, also in his own little snow nest. On Ferra’s other side, although further away, was a dark mass, barely visible in the darkness of the night. She assumed it was Rorin. Further in front of her, was what she originally thought was a lump of snow. The gold feathers were the only thing that made her think otherwise.
As the voices approached, Nyx gasped. “They’re coming!”
“We need to go now,” Spark said.
“This way!” Nyx shouted. She ran for the forest, her tail whipping behind her. “Come on!”
“There!” Shouted a voice from inside the Ruins. The first Terror bird stuck his head through the hole, his eyes wide. “General! They’re getting away!”
Wide-eyed, Forest turned tail and ran after the others as the Terror bird squeezed through the hole, screeching in protest.
The five carnivores ran and ran, when suddenly the general pounced from the side, leaping for Rust with her claws outstretched.
“No!” Forest roared. He jumped forward to help—when suddenly another creature pounced from behind them.
It was the Thylacoleo from before—the burly one who stood up to the Terror birds. He llanded briskly on top of the General with a yell, digging his claws into her sides.
She roared her agony and bit at his tail, and he yanked her off of Rust with brute strength. “Run!” He yelled to the Five, struggling to hold her down. “Get out of here!”
A few moments later they were dodging through the trees and branches, as fast as they could. Soon they heart talons thumping swiftly behind them, and Forest didn’t have to turn to see to know it was the Terror birds, once again after them.
The general had escaped the Thylacoleo and was roaring loudly, calling any soldiers nearby. Next thing he knew, several Terror birds were chasing them from all sides.
“They’re getting closer!” Nyx cried, panting.
No, no, no, no, please, we can’t get caught.
The general was at Forest tail now, snapping wildly. They were fast.
Instincts took over as the General plucked out one of his tail feathers. He yelped and rolled over, collapsing on top of her.
“Forest, no!” Spark snarled.
The general snarled and slashed at his face, leaving three gruesome claw marks trailing acrossed his snout. He cried out and leapt off of her, but three Terror birds had grabbed his arms and legs with their wings and beaks, pulling him back. “Guys!” He yelled. “Help! Help me!”
The others had stopped to fight, but both Rust, Crimsom, and Nyx had been pinned down. Spark was still fighting, but slowly being overpowered by all the soldiers. She roared her anger out, but slowly they brought her down to the forest floor, and she grunted angrily.
“Let us go!” Nyx yelled. “My fathers a chief, you know! He’ll be make you pay for this! YOU CAN DO THIS!” Her roar was angry, but her expression screamed fear.
“Really?” The general asked, stepping forward. “Daughter of Blazeheart?”
“Yes!” Nyx said frantically. “He’s the leader of the Shadowmanes and is super awesome!”
“We’ll see about that, young one.” The general hissed. “Take them.”
Crimson roared, struggling under the weight of six Terror birds. She smacked one in the face with her tail, causing him to falter, but before she could fight anymore, one reached back their foot and kicked her in the head.
“Crimson!” Forest yelled.
Crimsons eyes rolled into the back of her head, and she suddenly went limp.
“Let’s go!” The general roared. “Hurry up!”
One after the other, the Terror birds conked their talons over the heads of Spark, Rust, and Nyx. They all fell unconscious.
“Stop,” Forest said as one stepped forward to him. “Please.”
And here we are! The 5th story in the Prophecy of Six
She dug through the snow, and then through the dirt. Her hands were a bit scratched up. Then, she found it, she picked it up, she could feel the hum, hear the whispers. Ferra lifted it up, and just like a candy bar, she bit into it. Ferra grew to five times her size, she had more muscle, her eyes where glowing purple, she had more energy. Ferra ran off. Ferra found a lone Daedon, what are rare treat! Daedons are usually in packs so they’re hard to beat but finding one alone means your extremely lucky and your also going to love your dinner because nothing beats pork, well, except element. Ferra ran over to the Daedon and ripped it in two, then, dragged it back to her little hole in a cliff wall. Ferra ate her Daedon hungrily, and about the time she was done, she felt it slip away. The power, from the element, was leaving her body, she would have to wait till tomorrow if she wanted more, but, she would be fine for a while, a whole Daedon will give her little body energy for a long time. Now, in her small form, Ferra went into her little hole that you’d have to be very small to fit in, she curled up, and went to sleep.
Racheal turned to look at Dark. “You don’t have to come with me,” She told him. Dark blinked then rubbed his head affectionately against her face. She had tried to release him back into the wild before, but he had refused to leave her. Racheal sighed, secretly relieved that he wouldn’t be leaving her. Although she knew it was wrong to think that.
She looked past Dark and at the small wood cabin she had managed to build. He watched as she walked into the cabin. She left the door open, Dark watched her intently. Racheal walked up to the only bookshelf she had and grabbed several books. She then proceeded to walk out of the cabin and up to Dark. Dark stood still as she carefully placed the books into the saddle bags that hung from either side of his saddle. After loading all the books into the saddle bags, she quickly ran back inside and grabbed a couple more things. Racheal walked up to Dark who patiently awaited her. “Ready to go bud?” She asked before easily mounting his saddle.
For a moment, she remembered the horse riding lessons she had been taking, before she ended up here. If it weren’t for those lessons, riding dinosaurs probably would have been a lot harder. She gently kicked Dark’s side and he sped off. Towering above everything, up in the sky you could see the green obelisk. She steered Dark in that direction, with full knowledge of which paths were the safest and which were not.
They slowed to a stop as they reached the terminal under the green obelisk. Haroh waited there with only a handful of men and several bigger dinos.
There was an obvious tension between them, and she was concerned as to why. “What’s going on Haroh?” She asked as Dark strode closer to him. Haroh looked up from cleaning his sword. “We’re going to slay a beast today malady” he told her. She looked at him skeptically, “We were going to travel to a new ark today” She reminded him. “There’s been a change of plans,” he replied simply. “You know how it works, all the strongest beasts must be slain before we are permitted travel.” He explained. Racheal was slightly irritated “You told me they’d all been killed” Haroh put his sword away and walked up to her and Dark. He stroked the side of Darks neck. Dark flinched away and growled softly, only Racheal heard it. Haroh shrugged, “I figured you’d like the chance to witness such a glorious event” he replied.
Racheal huffed, she didn’t want to watch them kill anything. From what she’d researched, these apex predators probably just lie around waiting for some idiot humans to wander in and be their next meal.
She looked around and noticed Haroh’s men watching her intently. Haroh looked up at her expectantly. They’re not going to let me leave, she determined. For some reason Haroh was always desperate to impress her. “Fine” she sighed.
She moved Dark over away from the terminal and carefully dismounted. As she began to walk away, she heard Dark squawk from behind, she turned to look at him. He tilted his head with what looked like a concerned expression. “I’ll be back in a little bit” she called back to him. She continued walking toward the terminal.
“Got any spare armor?” She asked as she approached Haroh. He looked her up and down for a moment. He probably thought she should be in a pretty dress instead of some clunky metal armor. He waved his hand and one of his men walked up. Racheal made no effort to learn their names, her business was not with them. She also couldn’t tell them apart when they were dressed head to toe in flak. The man handed her a full set of flak armor, minus the helmet. She didn’t like helmets anyway. She quickly put the armor on. She could see most of Haroh’s men making an effort to look away, although Haroh himself didn’t seem to care.
Once she had the armor on, she asked Haroh for a mount “May I borrow one of your mounts? I wouldn’t want to be left defenseless” she found that she tended to get more out of Haroh when she acted helpless. Haroh began to open his mouth, probably to say something along the lines of ‘Don’t worry, you’ll have me to protect you’ but he seemed to think better of it and whistled over one of the yutys. “You May ride my personal steed” he said as the yuty stopped beside him.
She walked over to the yuty and patted its side. Underneath its thick fur, she could feel its strong bulky muscles. It made sense that this one was the one Haroh had selected to ride into battle. With just a glance around the area, she could tell this one was the strongest and most confident of all of them. A wave of sadness hit her, she felt bad for the animal. It had been bred and raised to kill, and if it failed to do so, it would be killed. It knew nothing but that.
Some of Haroh’s men walked up, probably to help her mount the yuty. She huffed and grabbed onto the yutys fur. It only took her a moment to heave herself onto the saddle.
Okay so, I’m trying to figure out how to do paragraphs, so, bare with me.
Just as she was almost asleep, she felt herself start to fall. She jolted upward, then huffed. I hate it when I’m almost asleep and I have that weird falling feeling. Ferra sat there for a moment, unsure of what to do. She wanted to go back to sleep, but she wasn’t sure about that anymore.
“Can” called a voice “hear me” it finished. She looked around. Isn’t that the voice from before? Where is it coming from? “I-i can hear you if that’s what you're wondering” Ferra replied nervously. “What is-“ the voice started.
Ferra stiffened as she attempted to locate the source of the voice. She put all her focus on her eyes and ears as she listened carefully. She suddenly realized something. She could hear many voices, as if multiple creatures were having a conversation. The voices sounded muffled, and quiet. She could only hear the voices if she strained her ears.
After a moment, although it had felt like several, the voice continued. “What is your name?” It asked. “Ferra” she replied as she turned to face the clear wall. The voice, it’s coming from somewhere in there “who...who are you?” She questioned, approaching the clear wall cautiously. No response came. “Who are you?” She repeated, still no response.
Ferra gently touched the clear wall, then quickly pulled her hand away. She took a step back from the clear wall, then another, then another, her ears flat against her head out of fear. The humans had now started to depart, they acted almost as if she wasn’t there, as if they didn’t notice her.
The one thing that scared her, was the one human that had seemed to notice her. A female, as it walked away, turned back to look at Ferra, a knowing look in her cool blue eyes. Ferra, unsure of this human, stood there, fear creeping up her spine.
As the days went by, the voice had started to talk to her more, almost every other day now. The voice tended to ask a lot of questions, and surprisingly, she didn’t mind answering them. The voice had even told Ferra its name, or at least, part of it. The voice's name was R.
Although it asked many questions, Ferra never asked too many herself. Although, there was one question she often did ask. She often asked R what exactly it was. Usually, it would just stop talking and never answer. Occasionally, after she asked the question, it would pause, then follow up with its next question.
Something that Ferra had noticed and thought was odd, was that the humans were always on the other side of the glass when she spoke to R.
Ferra didn’t think much of the humans. She just thought they were rude for staring at her like they did. The humans just simply annoyed her, nothing more, nothing less.
Only one human really bothered her, the dark brown haired female with odd looking small clear circles in front of her eyes. Ferra only ever saw this human as the crowds of humans on the other side of the glass wall departed. What was truly odd about this particular human, is that Ferra could always smell element radiating from this human. She could tell it wasn’t much, but it seemed to be very strong.
Ferra jumped at the sound of growling, humans yelling, and the occasional squawk. Confused and curious, she walked up to the small locked door on the right side of the cage. She looked through the small space in between the door and doorframe.
She could see a trap made of dinosaur gate frames, a white argentavis with gold tipped feathers trapped within. At the front of the trap, humans yelled at a brownish thylacoleo perched atop. The thylacoleo hissed and spat as the humans jabbed and threw spears at it.
From below, on the other side of the trap, a jet black direwolf attempted to destroy or break the trap, along with some other creature. The other creature stood out like a crimson drop of blood in the pure snow white landscape. This creature was wolf-like with big ears, claws, and teeth, its skin bright red.
Wait. Is that even possible? I-I’ve seen them before. She realized. I’ve seen them in my dreams. She had indeed seen these four in her dreams before. Although, they were different here. When she had seen the thyla, it had been just a kit, and the direwolf just a pup. The argentavis had only just hatched. The fourth creature, the red one, was a ravager. When she had seen the ravager, it hadn’t been as young as the others, but it had still been younger than it is now.
Ferra blinked and now within her view, she could see another argentavis, a human riding on its back. Ferra watched as it picked up the thyla and carried it to one of the other cages that lay neatly in a row. Next, it came back and carried the direwolf to a cage. Lastly, it picked up the ravager. Ferra stepped back and away from the door as the argent carried the ravager closer, and closer.
So I got out this beautiful creature in front of my friend after I tamed it, I got him out of my tribe and called my ferox “harmless fox.” He was super confused about why I banished him from my tribe but then I said it has a special ability but I can only use it on enemies not allies. He then has the audacity to call it ugly and that’s when I lost it. Fed my fox some element and said look at how cute the eating animation is, after I fed him 3 he transformed and I can just remember my friend screaming “OHH SHI*” into the mic. I chased him down and ended up killing him at our base. Really funny times.
Up if you would do this to your friends, if you have some.
Now, on the other side of the cage, Ferra looked up. She watched as the human pulled on the argents reigns, signaling for it to release the red ravager. The ravager fell down into the cage next to Ferra’s with a thump, causing Ferra to jump.
As she stood and listened, she could hear the sounds of barking and hissing. Ferra assumed the noises were coming from the thyla and direwolf. She could also hear the faint squawking of the white argent she had seen earlier. While she listened to the sounds around her, she heard the faintest clacking of nails, or claws. She assumed the ravager in the cage next to her was pacing or something like that.
Ferra carefully once again approached the door. Instead of turning her head so she could see outside, she put her nose up to the space. She sniffed, mentally sorting through the new scents. She picked up the smell of sand, which was something she had smelt very little off. Something also had the smell of trees and sap. She squeaked in surprise at the smell of the last scent. The last thing smelled of dirt and the wet darkness of a cave, but she also smelt something else, the smell of something she considered valuable. “Element” she whispered to herself. The smell of element wasn’t exactly unusual to smell, in fact, she smelled it constantly. Her makeshift necklace that wrapped around a single shard of element of course always smelled like element. The smell that her piece element gives off has mixed with her own scent, causing her to not really be able to smell it. Although, she could always smell it when there was a new scent of element as almost every piece smelled different to her.
She breathed in the familiar scent of element, then looked up at the colorful streaks. Purples, pinks, and blues on the orange sunset sky. The last of the sun's rays shining in the darkening sky. I’ll learn more about the new creatures tomorrow, She thought to herself.
She awoke to the sound of barking and growling. The moon shone above her head, almost full. “Will you shut up?! I’m trying to sleep!” She yelled, unsure of whom she was directing it to.
Suddenly, an apologetic male voice replied “oh! I'm so sorry, please forgive me! I didn’t know there was anyone else here” why is he talking like that? She wondered. A screech of annoyance sounded from further away, “Renegade!” A female voice hissed. Is that the thyla from earlier? I think the weird speaking male voice is the ravager.
“Apologies Lynx! There’s someone else here in the cage next to me!” The voice she figured was Renegade replied. “What is it? Who is it” the thyla hissed suspiciously, probably wondering if Ferra could be trusted.
Ferra crept up to the door on the right side of the cage. She squinted through the gap. The ravager could be seen clearly. Unlike Ferra’s cage, the ravager’s cage had large gaps in between the walls. Although, the gaps were too small for the ravager to fit through. The gaps were there so that the humans could go in and out of the cage easily, as well as view the specimen inside clearly.
The ravager turned to face Ferra’s cage, although it didn’t notice Ferra looking through the small gap. “May I know your name?” He asked politely. “You want to know my name?” Ferra laughed rudely, wondering how someone could be so calm and polite towards a stranger they just met after being captured.
The ravager nodded. Then paused, realizing she couldn’t see him, or at least, not as far as he knew. “Yes, of course that's if you don’t mind.” He answered after a moment. Ferra squinted at him judgingly, deciding what to do. “Only if you tell me your name” she demanded, expecting him to wait till after she said her name.
“Renegade” he grunted unexpectedly. She went quiet for a moment, letting herself think. “Ferra” she replied blankly. “That’s a beautiful name!” He paused, “I am so very sorry if this sounds rude, but may I ask you what species you are?” He asked nervously.
She rolled her eyes. He’ll have no idea what I am. We don’t have ravagers here, I only know what he is because of my dream. I doubt he’s ever even heard of a ferox. She thought for a moment. I guess it won’t do any harm to tell him.
“I’m a ferox,” she declared proudly. “I’m so sorry, but what exactly is a ferox?” He asked. She nearly laughed at his response. She had expected him to either ask what a ferox was, or politely nod and pretend he did. The polite-fancy way he talked annoyed her, but also humored her. “I’m a small fluffy thyla looking thing with big ears and four arms, but that doesn’t mean I can’t easily snap your neck”
Renegade looked surprised at her explanation. He shivered, then went back to normal. “Perhaps I’ll be able to see what you look like at some point. Till then, me and my friends will try our best to converse quieter so you may sleep in peace.” He promised. She grunted in response, knowing she had no intention of sleeping now.
Ferra gathered sticks, then some flint. One by one, she picked up sticks. She held a small bundle in one of her small hands, and flint with another. Ferra picked up a few more sticks and walked home, her makeshift necklace thumping against her chest. Ferra set her sticks up to where they looked like a small cone. Ferra started a fire. Most animals couldn’t start a fire, but Ferra could. Ferra had come across fire when she was meeting with her friend, Fenic.
They were at their usual meeting place when some human came by, pointing at them. The human wasn’t exactly pointing at them, it couldn’t see them, due to the snow and their white fluffy fur, but her and Fenic wondered. What were they pointing at? “James! Will you listen to me for once? This is a perfect place to make a base!” Called the human. Fenic and Ferra stared in horror. “Run!” Yelled Fenic as they spotted another human riding a purple and pink t-rex. Fenic and Ferra had run, but then, they watched for a while. The humans had gathered some wood, and then used some flint to light a fire. Fenic and Ferra tried to do what the humans did. After a few tries, they created fire. Fenic and Ferra had then found a new meeting place and went their separate ways, at least until the next time they were supposed to meet.
Ferra watched as the fire twisted and turned. Popped and crackled. She squinted at the fire. She could see a thyla, almost the color of Flames, it seemed as if he was looking for something, someone. Ferra blinked and there was nothing more. It must have been a trick of the flames. Ferra sat, and thought the thoughts she usually did.
I made this one a bit shorter than usual cuz I’m switching POVs next chapter
“Ready to go?” She asked her brothers. Puliki nodded excitedly “Yup!” He chirped. Tahi smirked at his excitement. Ferra began to walk, she flicked her tail for her brothers to follow.
Ferra sat watching Tagulavai mope around. If he really believed in what he saw, why hasn’t he tried harder to convince others of it? Wouldn’t that be the most logical thing to do? She wondered, picking up a handful of snow with her lower right arm. She shifted through it with her fingers as she thought.
Suddenly, she swung her head around. “Need anything Pualau?” She asked a light colored ferox. Pualau jumped at the mention of her name. “Oh. Um. Sure, could you get some things for bedding? Me and Fawi were watching almost all the cubs yesterday and they tore up both our nests.” She explained. Ferra nodded briefly “Sure” she replied before walking off.
Ferra walked through the snow, luckily it wasn’t very deep today.
Ferox nests were mostly made of snow, but they often put things like feathers, fur, moss, and leaves to make it more comfortable and warm. Although, ferox only really sleep in nests if they have a young cub, or cubs, or wants to sleep alone. Otherwise, they usually just sleep in groups, using each other for warmth.
Ferra spotted a bush not far off. She walked up to the bush and sniffed, making sure there was nothing living inside of it. After a moment, she decided it was safe to gather leaves from. She crawled under the bush, hoping to find some leaves that were protected from the weather and freezing temperatures.
Chittering and clicking sounds could be heard coming from nearby. Ferra’s ears perked up and she stumbled out of the bush, she used her mouth to hold the bundle of leaves she had collected. Ferra followed the sound curiously and cautiously. She hadn’t heard anything like it before, she stumbled back as she saw the tall creature.
The creature smelled like element and reminded her of the tek stegos and paras she’d see occasionally. It looked like it was made of a similar material. This creature looked like some kind of skinny diplo, with big ears, a beak, hooves, and a short tail.
A transparent blue ring formed around the creature's legs, then began to expand. Ferra jumped as the ring passed through her, she dropped a few of her leaves. The ring disappeared after expanding a little more.
The thing turned its head in Ferra’s direction and began to walk toward her. The tall, eyeless, creature loomed over her. The creature looked down and pointed its beak at her. The creature Tagulavai spoke of. She thought in the midst of her panic. She began to back away, but it was too late.
Renegade turned to face the other side of his cage, and walked over to the gap in the wall. “Well?” Demanded the thyla. Ferra strained her ears to attempt to listen to the conversation. “She said her name is Ferra, and she’s a…ferox. You wouldn’t happen to know what that is, would you?” He replied quietly. The thyla looked at him with a puzzled expression. “Nope. No clue. What does she look like?” Asked the thyla. “I don’t know. She briefly explained it to me, but it wasn’t a very detailed description. There are no gaps in the walls of her cage.” He explained.
The thyla paced back and forth in her cage, going in and out of his view as she passed the gaps in her cage. “Was she here when we got here?” The thyla asked, not stopping. “I believe so” he confirmed.
The thyla stopped pacing and sat down where Renegade could see her. She said nothing, she just sat there in silence. She seemed to be thinking, a determined expression on her face. There was no noise, except for the occasional scuffling, or the wing picking up and howling into their ears.
“Stop talking and think of a way out of here you useless sacks of meat, ask the stupid thing if it knows a way out! Do something other than sit there!” A rough voice growled from behind the thyla, having to speak loudly in order to be heard. Renegade simply nodded in response. He didn’t understand why Rorin was so rude, but he was tired and couldn’t bring himself to say anything. The thyla turned around and hissed, “Calm down Rorin!” Renegade, once again, just nodded in agreement. He twitched as he realized that Rorin most definitely could probably not see him, and Lynx currently had her back to him. Lynx once again faced Renegade. “Could you ask?” She requested. Renegade shook his head. “Perhaps in the morning. She’s currently sleeping” Lynx sighed, “alright” Rorin grunted from behind her.
Ferra snorted in agitation and backed away from the door. She couldn’t hear what they were saying, so she may as well attempt to sleep.
She opened her eyes and found herself in a human base. Deep in her stomach, she could feel her fear blister and burn inside her, but her curiosity was like an unbearable itch that seemed to override that fear.
Humans walked up and down the hallway. They would hurry past without noticing her. Surely anyone would notice a ferox in their midst. She looked around, her gaze passing over human, after human, over a dark haired female. She gasped and took a step back, only to jump forward as another human walked past behind her. She watched the familiar female, time seemed to slow as she did.
She closed her eyes as she gently lifted her muzzle into the air and took a deep breath, taking in all the scents, drowning out the already deafened noise. She choked and coughed at the element smell mixed with rot and decay. She traced the smell back to a faint purple glow coming from under the skin on the back of the female human's neck.
Her ears twitched at the mumbling that emanated from the glowing part of the female's neck, and the air around her. “Carry on with your little project” it rumbled “it will keep you busy while I string the element into the weak, while I figure out how to get into those who will resist the call of the element.” The voice continued to speak as time seemed to go back to normal and the female walked a way, the voice fading into nothing.
She was only given a moment to think before her ears flattened at the growing whispers that had haunted her in so many dreams. The whispers grew louder and louder around her, it was impossible to tell what the hushed voices were saying. She only knew what the whispers intended for her to know. They hissed a warning to her, although she didn’t know what they were saying. She let a wave of calmness wash over her and she closed her eyes. The whispers still growing louder, closing in, towering over her like long shadows.
She gently lifted herself up from her sleeping position. her head was down, facing the ground, her lone ears sat draped over the sides of her fight. She breathed heavily, her heart rate increased. Her tail curled around her as she settled herself into a sitting position. She allowed her ears to stand up straight like usual. The dreams don’t mean anything. Dreams are just dreams. Ferra sat and thought for a minute. But maybe it does mean something. Ferra smiled and growled at herself, “now I’m just being stupid”
She listened to the ravager speak softly to the other caged creatures. Ferra didn’t think this place was too bad, or at least, that’s what she had thought before the arrival of her new caged neighbors. She would much prefer, especially now, to be out hunting, taking a walk, or even just feeling the soft cold snow under her feet, she missed Fenic as well. She didn’t want to stay here anymore.
