Title: Downhill into Unfamiliar Territory
Summary: A cat and a snake meet while on the run from their owners, and despite their differences, help each other come to terms with their upbringing.
“And get your dirty paws off of my tail!”
The small gray cat mews apologetically as she clambers off of the snake’s tail, slipping like a newborn taking her first steps in the world. She lands heavy in the tall grass, fur shimmering as it becomes damp with morning dew. With a shake, she sends droplets flying in all directions, a cascade of rainbows against the morning mist. Tongue flickering irritably, Sylvian shuts his eyes against the unwelcome barrage.
