Silver moonlight shone through the thick forest. Matthew looked
up and glared venomously at the pine tree he was under. Growling
something inaudible, he turned around, hearing a fight.
Two of his least favorite stoats, who happened to be on duty,
were arguing about something. Just happening that it was by him,
the larger one, Slimenose, stabbed Twopaw, the smaller, (and
uglier) one in the stomach. Gasping, Twopaw, his paw with his
dagger pointed toward Matthew, fell over and died.
Slimenose looked shocked for a moment, then threw the body in
the river that was by their camp. The current quickly carried him
away downstream. Slimenose ran toward the second-in-command, a
female rat self-named Adder.
