Wolfdog127
Four tokotas trekked down from the cliff Amarok tribe was situated atop. Their destination was the lake that sat below their home. It was early morning mist and fog clung thickly to the ground and the sun was just peaking above the mountains.

Panik paused they where halfway down to the water this was her favorite part of the little path where it veered underneath the cliff. to one side was a deep cave which stayed relatively the same temperature year round making it feel cool in the summer and warm in the winter. The opening to the cave was obscured by a sheet of falling water from the river running through the village high above them. She paused to take a drink from the waterfall happily noting that the giant bird beast (Stryx) that her human enjoyed so much was currently absent.

Ghost was walking a bit in front of Anvil as they also headed to the lake. They were going down to have Anvil take a bath, since while working in the forge with Hidu, his mane had caught fire.... again. He had rolled to put it out but now the strong smell of burnt fur had attacked the senses of the tribe. So before a mob formed to throw him into the river Hidu asked Ghost to make sure Anvil washed up and just didn’t wander around and come back to work. Anvil thinking he was fine and just wanted to work with Hidu more went just to make everyone happy, and not to get thrown.

The last tokotas of their party was Greywind the dark tokota was taking a short trip down to the lake to relax and check some borders. He was the alpha of his respective pack and though they weren't too much trouble it was still nice to get away occasionally. Not like the lake was too far away if a problem did arise.

Sniper-Hidu
Ghost followed by Anvil came to Panik drinking from the waterfall. Ghost walked over to fell the nice breeze from the cave and looked around. "Panik i see your giant bird friend isn’t home today, i wonder what dires shes eating today." Ghost smiling to himself and walked over to also drink from the fall. Anvil feeling a little nervous now knowing Ghost will tease anyone and Anvil will have to help to make sure he gets back home alive. No one would wanna tell Hidu something happened to his oldest tokota and friend. Anvil stood next to Ghost and stuck his whole head into the fall to cool off and splash Ghost with water to hopefully cool him off to.

Wolfdog127
Panik barred her teeth a bit "That stupid bird couldn't take a dire if it tried" she huffed "now a tiny thing like you maybe" She started walking down the path out of the cave. She'd never admit it especially not to Ghost but she was terrified of the stryx the idea of a creature bigger than her that could also fly was a very unnerving to the dire.

Greywind followed behind her happy in the knowledge that no one here was part of his pack so if they decided to rip each other apart it was not in fact his problem. He paused.. though it would be pretty bit annoying if they did.. would ruin his peaceful day.

Sniper-Hidu
Anvil looked to Ghost "Now don’t go piss her off okay, i may be here, doesn’t mean I'll help to not die." Ghost looked to Panik, "ohhh, don’t you be soft on me cause you got a crush on her, you don’t even have a chance. I have a small one but I’ll probably lose a limb in the process." Anvil huffed and threw his weight at Ghost knocking him back a little. They both laughed a little and follow Panik and Grey down to the lake.

Wolfdog127
At the lake Panik dove straight in for a dire she was surprisingly agile in the water she'd been catching fish with her mother Bonnie since before she could remember it was second nature now. She had already snatched up a small fish and was starting to eat it when Greywind got to the edge of the water. He glanced down the bank as he walked along the edge noticing something in the distance at first he thought it was an overturned tree stump until he got closer and realized it was moving "What the?"

Sniper-Hidu
Anvil looking in the water dove straight in, feeling the cool rush of water on him felt great. He swam around a little and noticed all the fish here. He then started to try and catch some as Panik did. He wasn’t as good as her but he could still manage. Ghost walked around the bank to where the humans keep traps for the fish and see if any are full to haul back up to the tribe.

Wolfdog127
Greywind approached the creature cautiously it was massive and spiky it looked like a turtle but it's shell was covered in sharp knobs it was completely black with a jagged hooked beak and huge claws. It was a turtle from hell if he'd ever seen one. Then apparently it decided Grey had come a bit too close it snapped at him before quickly retreating back into the water and swimming down the bank. The tokota jumped startled by the sudden movement he soon collected himself and realized the creature was swimming straight for the unsuspecting dires. 'Damn it'

Panik glanced up and noticed the beast about to run into Anvil's side "uhhhh Anvil! demon turtle!" She warned.

Sniper-Hidu
Anvil glancing over his shoulder, "Demon turtle? What the hell is that?" as he finished his question it was right in front of him and it snapped right onto his mane. Anvil was shocked not only did this thing look like hell it was now attached to him. He ran out of the water doing circles trying to shake it off. Ghost noticing the panic ran over to try and help.

Wolfdog127
Panik ran out of the water with Anvil trying to get him to calm down so she could grab the beast. Greywind showed up about this time unsure of how to help which was a rather odd feeling for him.

Anvil stay still!” Panik said loudly to get the dire's attention.

Sniper-Hidu
Anvil stopping immediately in his tracks frozen stone cold. He wanted to scream and run and get this demon off him, but he didn’t wanna make Panik angry either, he didn’t know which one would hurt more the turtle or her? Ghost smiling to himself "you’ll be okay buddy, at least it only grabbed fur."

Wolfdog127
"Alright good" She said happy for a moment before realizing she had no idea how they where going to get this thing off him. "lets see" she tried getting her jaw around it and ended up getting a good grip between a few of the spikes on it's shell. The thing didn’t even seem to notice. "This may hurt a bit" she warned before pulling backwards freeing the creature and a large chunk of fur from Anvil's mane.

Sniper-Hidu
Anvil feeling the tug and rip of fur yelp in pain before realizing the demon was no longer attached to him, he looked to Panik "thank you". Ghost looked at in horror "Jesus that turtle looks like it just crawled out of Bonnie's butt, think it taste any good?" he lightly tilted his head in the thought.

Wolfdog127
Panik nodded a welcome at Anvil and dropped the turtle at Ghost's paws "If you can kill it you can find out" She said knowing there was no way any of them where getting through that shell. Greywind shook his head walking back to the water to do some fishing now that demon turtle was on dry land.

Sniper-Hidu
Ghost put a paw on it to feel the rock hard shell, "damn, this is quite the monster, Anvil why don’t you put some weight on it, see what you can get." Anvil starring in horror that Ghost asked him to get close to it again. Ghost saw Anvils face, "ohhh come on, its on the ground we have it. it ain’t going anywhere unless you take your foot off of it. Anvil feeling terrible walked over and put a paw on it and then the other paw. The turtle unfazed at the dires attempts to hurt it. Anvil started to jump pushing the shell deeper into the dirt but still doing no harm to it.

Wolfdog127
It's a lost cause boys that thing doesn't give a fuck” she motioned at the turtle who looked like it was settling in for a nap before following Greywind back to the water to continue her fishing.

Sniper-Hidu
Ghost and Anvil gave the demon one last sniff before leaving it there in the dirt to see if they can catch some lunch, they seemed to have worked up an appetite now.
