The oldest and a foal separated from their herd, they approached grass near the two and their hiding place. The herd gathered closer. Of-Rising-Vortex and Below-Shade stared without a sign of menace or distraction.
They leapt upon the largest and seized it between mandible and hand, the surprise brought her down to the side, before Below-Shade gutted the equine.
Of-Rising-Vortex turned to the foal. His pincers reached but he hesitated, lost in the creature and its soft eyes. He stared for a whole second until the foul bolted. The herd ran to the shadows.
