Where There is Smoke

She trembled with the fear of the unknown, her world growing hot and dark around her until a thick powdery blackness enveloped her body, taking over what once was light and lively. After the heat came an unfamiliar weightlessness. It lifted her just above the tess where Smoke could see what had caused the darkness: a fire had started in the dry grass nearby, devouring the old cabin she had always called home, and now crept slowly towards the local campground where the shy cat was sometimes tossed little bits of fish and salty meat. She had to warn the others, but how? Gliding through the air ever so lightly and with such effortless fluidity never felt before, she headed to the meadow where she spotted a herd of grazing deer. Hovering around the large animals, she tried to whisper in their ears about the danger nearing, but they could not hear her. As she passed under the chin of the largest stag, he lifted his head and sniffed the air cautiously, then stamped the ground in a most urgent manor, alerting his family. Smoke realized now how she could help.
