LeopardMask was siting in her bed brushing SteelWind and Nitaya when River,ScarHeart and IceMask climbed up in her bed with they're compainions. IceMask had the egg along with her puma. The puma's name was Njari. Njari had leaped over from the left upper bunk next to Leopards. River had also climbed over to Leopards bunk from the right upper bunk with her two wolfs. Ally she was a black wolf and Jasper he was a grey wolf, now they were siting next to River on the bunk. the childerens bunks were rather wide so that they could hold many of them at once. ScarHeart had crossed over to Leopards bunk from the upper bunk directly in front of Leopards. She was now siting at the end of Leopards bed with her two compainions beside her one was a Lynx the other was a wolverien. they were named Kawa and Hokoru they were both boys Kawa was the lynx and Hokoru was the wolverien. when they had all settled down LeopardMask still brushing down Steelwind when Scar couldnt bear the silence any more "oh come on Leopard tell us what happened the night HawkIce came to the orphanage!" Exclaimed Scar in a low voice so that the other children in the room could sleep. River and Ice both nodded they're pets were chatting with each other in the bed quietly while the girls talked. The shifters were rather close with animals so they could understand what the animals were saying. "well i could hear him shivering under my matress so i grabbed my extra blanket and covered him with it" Said Leopard Shrugging "Haha very funny i was watching when you did that and that wasnt all that happened you she wolf" Said River grinning. Leopard shrugged. "oh well im busted i leaned over and kissed his cheek" Ice river and Scar gasped silently and giggled. but they didnt giggle in the way a pop school girl would, it was a giggle that was more of a chuckle "oh my gosh! Leopard you didnt even know him" Said Ice looking at Leopard with a stern look. Leopard only shrugged and said " i couldnt help myself hes cute!" "so? you really need to tell me this stuff!" Ice said looking disappointed " oh well its not like i kissed him. Thats disgusting!" said LeopardMask looking guilty sort of "no its not and you dont think so either" said River pokeing Leopard grinning "ok fine you got me when i went out to play with Wind and Taya i caught him stareing at me so i sent my two compainions inside. we talked for a little while then the supper bell rang and i couldnt help myself again" LeopardMask said was saying again a little long "and i kissed him" Leopard said now brushing Nitaya. Now not only River Ice and Scar were stareing at her with mouths open so were the pets. "Leopards got a crush! Leopards got a crush!" Said Ice grinning. Leopard was now blushing "well in any matter i have to ask Justin you three Hawk and Guiga something so when Hawk comes back and all the lights are out lets meet back over in the stables Scar you wake up your boyfriend Justin, Ice please wake up guiga, and River do you mind wakeing up Hawk?" LeopardMask asked them "yeah ok" River said "not a problem" Ice replied "ill be glad to do it" Scar also replied. Then they climbed back into they're beds and waited for the moment to arrive when Leopard would give the signal to wake up.
Hawk Ice had just exited his mentors house when DodgeingArrows and HonestShadow his Jaguar and baby griffon came running up to greet him. He smiled and sank lower to the dusty road to pet his two compainions when he had finished peting the two he got up and started to walk back to the orphanage with Dodgeing Arrows and HonestShadow next to him ."Hey Hawk! Wait up" came a voice from behind him. He turned around when he heard the framilier bark from the Husky Draina. followed by a caw from a raven named Breshlar. "Hey Justin" Said Hawk looking down at the dusty road hands in his pockets. Hawk had been wearing for a long time a red shirt with his name on the back with also the names of the other children from the orphanage, His pants with black with red stripes running down the sides they werent very tight but they werent very baggy either. Justin stopped in front of hawk and leaned down to pet Arrow and Shadow. "whats wrong Hawk?. Normally when you leave Lear's house your in a great mood" Justin was another of the orphans Hawk had made friends with Justin was like a brother to Hawk so normally they would walk talk chat practice skills and what ever with each other. Justin had arrived at the orphanage a day after Hawk had, So Hawk had made friends with him so quickly they grew to be really close friends. now ,over two months later they would take a bullet for each other. Lear was the nick name the orphans had given Sir Lerseron. "He got on to a senseitive subject" Hawk replied "oh witch one the one about you and Leopard or the one about the time you tryed to tame a bull elk?" asked Justin with a bit a sarcasm in his tone. Hawk stared at him for few minutes while they were walking down the path to the orphanage "the one about Leopard" Hawk replied after a little while, as he returned to looking down at the dusty path. the four pets had ran ahead to play with one another. "well? did you tell him?" asked Justin curiously "yeah i told him" replied Hawk "i think you should ask her out man" Justin said grinning "what?! no i cant id chicken out of it when i would start to ask her"Hawk replied looking down "you gotta do it some time or your gonna bust!" Said Justin as they entered the orphanage. he brought his hand up to stop HawkIce. Hawk stopped, turned and stared at Justin "ask her tomorrow ok man if you do ill help you tame those bull elk you've been chaseing for the past few months" Hawk raised one of his eye brows considering. He had been chaseing two bull elk for a long time now. One he was going to use as a mount, the other he had planned on giveing to some one he wasnt sure who though. "ok what ever ill do it" Hawk finally replied. Justin smiled and put his hand down as they walked back into the room of the orphanage to go to sleep. That day like always Justin had been wearing a long black coat and dark blue jeans. He also had been wearing brown boots and fingerless gloves. Justin had short brown hair. He rarley let any one see if he was pleased sad angry or anything like that. Some of the children at the orphanage (minus the ones he knew) called him Mystery boy. Though to his friends and those he cared about he was deadly protcetive espiecly of ScarHeart. ScarHeart and Justin had had something going on ever since the fourth day of Justin being at the orphanage. Hawk and Justin nodded to each other then went to they're beds to go to sleep, they're animals curling up near them. "Justin! Justin! wake up wake up!" Said Scar shakeing Justins shoulder a bit roughly. Justin rubbed his eyes and sat up "im up im up!" he said rubbing his eyes "oh hey sweet heart. whats wrong?" Justin asked blinking his eyes "come on Leopard needs us all in the animal stables stat!" Said Scar grabbing Justins hand. But before she got far Justin tugged her back over and kissed her. "alright lets go" He said after finishing kissing her. He got up, slipped his boots on, grabbed Scars hand and went down the long hall to lead out of the orphanage so they could get to the stables. . Justin and Scar's pets follow quietly behind them. "guiga wake up! wake up guiga!" Said Ice a little louder then normal in guigas ear to wake him up shakeing him roughly. Guiga was a soung sleeper so it took a bit more effort then normal to wake him up. "im up im up! wait Ice? what are you-" he didnt get any farther then that before Ice covered his mouth with her hand " come on Leopard needs us in the stables stat!" Said Ice. Guiga nodded and got out of bed slipping his leather boots on and black jacket. Guiga normally wore a navy blue jerkin, his black jacket and his jeans, with his boots. they dashed over quietly like they had been trained to. got to the door opened it got out with the pets then started after the stables not far behind Scar and Justin. "get up Hawk! come on no time to lay around! wake up!" said River shakeing Hawk Ice roughly to wake him up. But he merely turned over. Rivers eyes narrowed and looked over at HonestShadow. She whispered something in the Jaguars ear, it woke up and jumped up and down on Hawk to wake him up "ugh shadow! quit it!" said Hawk siting up rubbing his eyes when he saw River he began to say something but river covered his mouth. she turned around and saw LeopardMask dashing towards the door of the orphanage Nitaya and SteelWind right behind her. "come on Leopard needs us at the stables we better hurry or they'll start without us!" River said uncovering Hawks mouth and slipping a jacket on. She had been wearing a dark purple cotten shirt with a yellow star on it. she also wore black jeans and leather grey boots. Hawk got up with his two compainions and made a dash for the door right behind River who had her pets infront of her
