Jaws of the Crocodile- Chapter 9

Nox peeked around the room. The coast was clear. He nodded to the others, and they silently dropped off the rafters and onto the floor of the grand bedroom.

“I think the wolves are gone.” Whispered Pouncer.

“Wait, listen!” Cutter said. They went silent.

“I’m telling you, Spirit, they went in there!” It was the Alpha Male.

Spirit, his mate, was not interested. “They went into that bedroom!” She yelped.

Nox gulped. They were about to be found out.

“Hey, I heard there’s a fighting match going on in the center of town.” Another wolf piped up. “Some griffin named Flare is fighting Massacre.”

“No way.” Said Spirit in disbelief. The wolves left.

“Hey, we should go too!” Cutter said. “Flare is fighting!”

The kapros eventually made it to the center of town. All the tamed creatures in the city were clustered around a massive arena. Inside, Flare was in the heat of battle against the giga who had roared at them earlier.

“Whoa, this is cool!” Said Nox. Flare danced around Massacre’s blows, and delivered a sharp kick with his talons. He then cut the giga deep with his beak. His strength was no match for Flare’s speed. In minutes, Massacre had yielded, and a Gigantopithecus gave Flare a trophy with a giga head carved onto it in obsidian.

“What’s going on here?” Haphis and Chiron stepped into the ring. All the creatures turned their heads.

Nox had a feeling that he, the other kapros, and Flare were about to get in a lot of trouble.
