    Post by sesrocker on September 23rd 2008, 20:28

    Welcome to our little story we like to call, Secrets of the Rocky Mountains! This is a story like no other, it is about 4 tribes of animals: Wolf, Grizzly Bear, Red-Tailed Hawk, and Mountain Lion. It is about the lives of the animals in the forests of North America, and what they have to do to survive. We will have a new chapter every week, each week about a different tribe. The order will go Wolves, Grizzly Bears, Mountain Lions, and Red-Tailed Hawks. Here are the characters and their names from each tribe.

    This is our first chapter starting with the wolves. There will be a picture for this chaptr later on. Here goes.

    Ch. 1- wolves

    All was quiet in the depths of the mountain forests. A whisper carried on the wind, a solitary rock clattering off the cliffs, even the creak of a bending tree would pierce the stillness like a siren. Every living creature held its breath as a wolf howl rose into the night. At least 20 wolves sang that night, or so it sounded. The chilling cry seemed loud enough to rattle the mountain, yet soft and smooth enough to calm the stormiest seas. It was a song of content, of pleasure. The wolves were in peace that night; The night when it all began…

    Through a craggy tunnel in a low cliff, tucked behind a wall of flowering vines and trees, dwelled the Serigala tribe’s cave. A dark wolf crouched in the entrance of the cave, tense and watchful. The peace granted to the tribe of wolves was gone from him. A chokeberry bush rustled to his left. He snapped to his feet, and the moonlight lit his face, revealing a lighter stripe along the length of his muzzle. Another wolf emerged from behind the bush, this one a silvery gray. The dark wolf relaxed at the sight of the silver wolf, for this was his mate, Alsoomse. Together they led the pack and protected It against other tribes.

    “Achak, What is it?” murmured Alsoomse. She was worried, and by the look on Achak’s face, so was he.

    Achak shook his head and sighed. “I’m not sure. But something is wrong… Something in the air just isn’t…” He struggled to find words to describe his thoughts, but could not. “We will have to wait and see.” Disappointed, Alsoomse wandered into the depths of the cave. Achak remained, however, and continued to gaze across the forest, searching for answers.

    It was the emerging of a new tribe that unsettled the Serigalas. A hint of an oncoming fight clung to the wind. A struggle for his own life was not what bothered him. He would not lose her again…

    Here you guys go, Chapter 2!! Enjoy:

    Ch. 1 – grizzly bears

    Down by the great river, stood the mighty beast; His black paw digging into the ground with anger. Ahiga, the strongest of the group, was ready to attack. He had waited to long last time, and lost the home he once loved. It is now the sight of a group of creatures, to ugly to come out during the day; A group of creatures, so obsessed with themselves that they sing to the empty forest in hopes that one day they will capture the hearts of all creatures in the area, but are disappointed to learn that this will never happen. This is now the home of the Serigala tribe.

    As Ahiga was growing more agitated, his mate, Anpaytoo, was coming out of her den. She had just awakened after a long hibernation. She still remembered that day when the wolves came, the day she lost her 1 and only child. She came to Ahiga’s side, and whispered in his ear, “Please try not to hurt yourself, ok?” He had a stunned look on his face; This was the first time she had ever encouraged him to do anything that would possibly hurt himself. He felt a wave of excitement rush over when he knew he had encouragement by his side. He sprinted as fast as he could down the hill to the others.

    When he finally got to the bushes, he poked his head inside. There were two other small heads glaring at him from the field near his side, and one other on her hind legs checking out what all the commotion was. When Ahiga saw the others staring at him, he wondered where Adahy, the youngest of the group, was. All of a sudden he hears this scream coming from the trees, it was him. He was saying, “We’re all here, what’s so important? We just woke up, and you gave us our first scare of the season!!” Everyone was closing in on Ahiga, something he didn’t like, but he knew this was more important. “I am going to attack; I am going to attack those creeps that stole our home!!” he said with all his might. “We should get ready; We have a long night ahead of us.” Migina said from the back in her normal quiet voice. They soon wondered into the forest side by side.

    They were not used to being together like this; It had been a while since they had walked as a family. The last time was when baby Shiye was still with them. They made it to the lush berry bushes back at their den. This wasn’t as bad as they thought it was going to be they found out as they stuffed their faces with luscious blue-berries. This was the start to something big; It was the start of a new life.

    I wish we had the time to write that much too, Justin, but it would be impossible to write a new chapter everyday, but we're glad you like it!
    Very Happy

    Ch. 3- Mountain Lions

    A flicker of light among the leaves intrigued him with its shimmery beauty. It slid to the dirt below his feet and back up to the leaves with every change of the wind. It angled downwards and he sniffed it receiving a shock on the nose. His curious brown eyes stared at the glimmer, dancing in the early morning light. The silence pressed upon him like an iron, flattening him into the calm of the mountains; sealing him against its ever-changing landscape.

    “Mukki,” a whisper pulled him out of the calm. “Mukki,” came the whisper, slightly louder this time. Suspicious, he paced over to a patch of trees, where the sound had come from. Mukki paused to listen, but heard nothing.

    Leaning in he whispered, “What?” No answer. “Hello?” Nothing moved, nothing stirred. Frustrated, Mukki turned back the way he had come. For it was Mukki who had been sitting in the clearing watching the intricate dance of the morning lights.

    Mukki’s head snapped up suddenly. He whirled around quickly, but not quickly enough. A flash of teeth and claws flew towards him, the blow knocking him from his feet. He gripped the earth with his claws and leaped back at his attacker. He saw nothing but golden fur for a few seconds and then he was flat on his back, gasping with all four paws up in the air, holding his sister at bay.

    “Mimiteh get off!” he complained attempting to roll back upright.

    Mimiteh giggled. “Gotcha bro!” She called triumphantly. “What were you doing anyway?”

    “Nothing. Just watching and listening.” Mukki answered. Mimiteh shot him a confused look.

    “To what? There wasn’t anything there.” She disagreed. “Oh, no, not the mountains again. You can’t hear the mountains Mukki. Its all in your head.”

    The two mountain lion cubs trotted away together. They came upon a thicket of large needle-ridden trees and pushed through them. Shaking the needles from his short course fur, Mukki suggested that they find their mother, Mosi. Mosi was talking to another mountain lion, by the name of Enapay.

    “Mama” mewed Mimiteh. The cubs ran to their mother. Mosi looked upon them with love and affection and allowed them to nuzzle up against her as she spoke with Enapay. Soon their father, Bidziil, strode into their midst. He smiled and they chatted peacefully, admiring the beauty around them. The whole of the Kottur tribe was at one with their natural world. They were quiet, cautious, and observant, but they could be caring and loving too. Together they stood, calmly but powerfully. Watching, forever watching. The cubs were still tucked up to their mother long after the sun set, and the golden-brown eyes shown in the blackness like stars. Watching, forever watching…

    Here's Chapter 1 - Red-Tailed Hawks!! (Sorry it took so long guys...)

    Suletu was soaring above the glistening water of Lake Castaic, flying inches above the small ripples bouncing on the surface. The young hawk was just enjoying life. When she flew back to her nest to greet her mate, the worst thing had happened to their egg. They only had one good egg left, a man came weeks ago and took the others away. He only left one, one fragil, pearl white egg. While taking his turn watching the nest, Gaagii had sat upon the egg. The egg was so fragile that it broke as soon as he sat down. This was devastating for them, they hadn't had a newborn in almost 3 years.

    Their whole flock was starting to come home from their hunt, a tiring one to gather food for the soon-to-be born young one. When they flew back, they all just stood stunned in front of the demolished egg remains. This same thing had happened to the others, and they were so hopeful that this one would be different. "How did this happen!?" Tadewi choked up "Why!?" "I just sat down, I swear!" Gaagii said, scared of the punishment the others may inflict upon him, trying to swallow down the fear he whispered, "I am just as shocked as you are, please believe me!" He was the youngest of the group, this wasn't his nest, but he thought he would take his first shift on egg watch.

    All of a sudden, a small caugh echoed out from the oldest bird, Peta, who was hidden behind the sharp needles of the giant pine. She crawled out and with a scratchy voice whispered in the ear of the young hawk, "Do you really expect us to let you go with killing our young!? Do you really think you were going to be let off the hook without repaying your debt? Nice try!" Then in a quick slash he was hurtling to the forest floor, tumbling in the wind as he fell. She had attacked his dominate wing, the right. He hit the ground with a large thud.
