Remix: Perchance (Solitary Remix) [Diefenbaker, 100 words, rated G], by kernezelda
Darkness, warmth, soft bodies clambering over you. Snuffle and sniff, struggle toward foodfemalewolfpack.
Remember: stalking, leaping, teeth clicking empty, belly growling. The others grew still. She fell to the food you hunted.
Cold, hungry; fearful: alone. You fell, but no wolf answered your cries.
A creature, food or not food, you didn’t know - large, clawless, tailless. Alien eyes that said he, too, was alone.
Sleeping limbs twitch - scrabbling up an earthen wall, running with him through stone forests, denning higher than eagle nests.
Wake. Sniff the air, leap on the bed. Snuffle and wriggle between warm bodies.
