A box tumbled down a small hill hitting rocks and sticks along the way and stopped abruptly. Rory tried to stand, but was too dizzied from the roll. One of her paws touched the side of the box and recoiled, as she realized that it was cold and damp. The box was dark, but now that he stopped moving, he heard the gushing of water, and the smell of grass, the familiar scent of winter, and…water!
Blind and terrified, Rory began to panic. Claws extended, Rory spun around and began shredding at the side of the box.

as it bobs in the bleak mad sea.
Keep in Touch!
