She stops a little bit away and flashes her eyes at the weirdly realistic wolf.

"Are you going to come to life and try to eat me, puppy?"

Permalink

The wolf doesn't respond. Except - is that a gleam, in its golden eye? Hard to tell.

Permalink

She walks up to it slowly. She doesn't actually want to be et, but this is too exciting to pass up.

Permalink

It certainly feels like it's watching her. It doesn't move, though, not even once she's close enough to touch.

Permalink

Well, she touches the wolf then. It is her animal, after all.

Permalink

It's warm. Soft, like stone shouldn't be, with a thrum like a growl beneath its surface.

Tense. Eager. Waiting.

Permalink

"Well, what are you waiting for? Is there a button to release you or something?"

Permalink

It doesn't answer.

But - does the gleam in its eyes move? Possibly -

There are two more depressions, after all. Two more positions that could be filled around the horse. The wolf seems to be looking at those, now.

Permalink

"Guess that means I have to go gather the gang. Hmm." She turns around and goes back to the crossroads. "Lion first, I think. Snakes creep me out."

She goes to open the lion door.

Permalink

Lion door: reveals a large circular room. There are three metal gates, one opposite her and one to the left and one to the right, and behind each is a statue of a lion, ready to pounce. Each gate has a symbol above it - some stylized teardrop-shaped squiggles across from her, a box with an X in it to her left, and three arrows pointing up to her right.

Permalink

God, she wishes she had August here right now. Or even Kai. Well. Maybe not Kai. Fuck that guy. But they both were great with riddles.

She walks over to the box and tries to open it.

Permalink

The gate doesn't budge.

Permalink

Wolf-Smash it is.

Permalink

The gate can be smashed! The lion inside animates, pouncing for her.

Permalink

She growls and swipes at it with her extended claws.

Permalink

The lion is tough, and made of stone, and is pushed aside by the blow but not deeply scratched.

It regains its footing and keeps attacking her.

Permalink

This is getting annoying.

She picks up the stupid thing and smashes it against the wall.

Permalink

It shatters, leaving deep cracks in the wall.

Permalink

"And thats enough of that."

She dusts off her hands and puts away her claws.

Permalink

There's a glass sphere with a golden swirling light in it at the back of the lion's den.

Permalink

Is it scoopable now?

Permalink

Yes.

Permalink

Scoop and crush then!

Permalink

The light rushes off down the corridor behind her.

Permalink

To the snake now! She does not skip to the snake corridor... not that anyone is around to make fun of her. She totally skips.
