|The stalker attacks.|
On this dark, rainy night, the moon is full. Shining like a soft white-blue pearl in the cool black sky like an orb of pure light. The stars shine like knife points, cutting through the black night with pin point accuracy. Everthing is quiet, too quiet. Inside the little home on the hill far from any means of help, crouched in the corner, out of sight of the untrained eye, is a sleek black creature. He watches without blinking, as his unsuspecting prey goes about her business without a clue that she is being watched. He waits as she moves across the room. She's ten times his size yet he can take her. Watching, waiting. She gets close, so close, patience, not yet... She walks past him, inches from his vantage point without seeing him and exits the room. He doesn't relax. He can't afford to let this opportunity slip through his claws. He uses his keen sense of hearing to listen. If he were to leave his position he could lose his advantage on her. The slightest movement of muscle could give him away. It seems like hours have past within these few minutes she's out of sight. His ears perk at the sound of footsteps, thump, thump...she's on her way back. He readies himself for the attack. His heart is beating faster and faster. He can hear his blood rushing through his veins. She gets closer. Every step gets closer, louder. He positions his hind feet under his strong muscular body. He readies his fangs for the kill. The moment is almost here. Wait, wait, NOW!! Screams pierce the night air. She's been caught. His teeth taste the soft skin of her ankle. The cotton that protects her feet from the cold does not deter this creature in the least. He grips with his paws around her ankle and digs in his claws as tight as he can. He releases his bite and clamps down again. She gives him a kick, "crazy cat," she yells at him. She grabs him by the nap of his neck and rubs her nose in his fur. He gets her everytime. Tweet
