After that morning fighting with Afrika, I returned to my den and lay down. I sighed. She hated me. For no reason. Well. Maybe because I'd gone on her territory a few times. But that was what cheetahs did. The males went on the female's territory to join as mates. But he loved her, and she hated him.
What was up with Misui? Didn't he realise I wanted to be left alone?
Then again, maybe he didn't. I should apologise. I lazed for a few more minutes, then leapt nimbly down to the ground without even the tiniest thump. And with that, I followed Misui's scent trail to wherever he lived.
