River woke, her paws trembling. The glaring eyes of the grey tom still burned in her mind. Stonekit sat beside her, worry clouding his gaze.
“You were having a nightmare, weren’t you? You were twisting and fidgeting in your sleep.”
“It’s…it’s nothing.” River got up and stretched, her sore muscles aching. “Let’s get moving.” River said.
“We still need to eat. Echokit went hunting for those squirrels, but that was a while ago. You were sleeping for a long time.”
River looked up at the sky and noticed the sun had nearly set. Fear shot through her.
“Why didn’t you wake me sooner?!” She exclaimed, jumping to her feet.
