This is my first legit Fanfic, world. It will probably be really bad, but I'm putting all the trust I have in my insane grammar and writing skills.
Chapter 1~ Visitors, for the worst and better
My life ended when they came. Their ashen due, their smokey smell... Their dead, scarlet eyes.
I suppose the attack wasn't completely unexpected. Greatfa had told my skulk of these 'pleached' foxes. The minds, and possibly the Maa itself could be drawn from innocent foxes and make them belong to someone else. "Who takes them?" I'd ask him giddily as a child. He would just shake his shaggy head, and turn around.
My Greatfa died of old age before we were attacked. He would rather go that way than by a pleached fox.
The attack came and left quickly. In the beginning, my little brother, Ylun, smelled them first. He had only been born a few months ago, but the rest of his litter didn't make it a week. But he, the smallest of the skull, smelled the pleached ashy fufur first.
Ylun went to tell my Greatma, for she would listen to him. She was the most mean and cranky vixen you would ever meet, but She was Ylun's best friend. By time they came out of our den, the pleached had taken Ma and Fa.
Greatma fought the pleached, at first. Then came an odd pleached one... Their eyes were normal. But then she started to bark like a dog. Bird's cawed around us. Greatma got scared. She wrapped her skinny tail around Ylun in protection. The odd pleached fox but Ylun's neck. He fell at her feat.
"Sansun," She cried to me. "This is evil Foxcraft, these sounds! Run, run!" And I did. I never tried to help. I only wished to protect myself. What a foolish fox I am.
Farther away, I looked back. Greatma wasn't in sight. Fire burned. The place was deserted.
I waited hours, in the woods. I stared at my den, finally going back when the Sun sank into the horizon. When I went into my den, nobody was there. What a strange feeling to be alone, with no home at all.
When I layed down, iit dawned on me that my family was gone. I hhad been in a shock of sorts, unable to think. But now I can. I wrap my tail around me, shivering with nobody to comfort me.
I whimper into my gray brush. I know it is childish, but I am only over a winter old. I'm going to for of starvation. I've never hunted by myself before. My mind melded into sleep despite my racing and solemn thoughts.
I wake to voices. It was definitely another fox. I sniff the air, but my cave coveres the smell of the foxes. I have no other choice: I crawl up to the entrence.
"This one has already been attacked," said a female, with a sad voice.
"Should we go in?" a make asked.
"Come on, Tao. You know what we'd find,"
"What if someone survived?" Implored Tao.
"I have seen enough corpses for one day. You go ahead: go look around, find another body,"
"I'll do just that," he shot back.
I crawl downwards, into the cave. But Tao, the make, strutted down after me. He walked nose first, relying on smell. Tao stopped, and stared at me.
"Who are you?" he commands. "What are you doing here? You're only a cub..."
My eyes darted around frantically, searching for escape. I sigh, and regain my composure.
"I'm Sansun," I say. "I'm here because it is my home... Well, it was my home,"
"Where are your parents, pup?" Tao asks.
"Dead," I say. "The pleached took them,"
Tao's eyes widend. "The pleached..." he murmured. "Simmi!" he shouts. "Come see this!"
Sunni came down. "What?" she asks, then sees me. Her tail stands up, she's trying to make herself look bigger.
"This is Sansun. She survived an attack," he says. "She'll due alone. We just have to teach her!"
Sunni scowls at me. "Fine. We don't need any more dead foxes,"
"What are you teaching me?" I ask Simmi and Tao. Tao's tail wagged. A flash of pride lot Simmi's eyes.
"Ever heard of Foxcraft?" Simmi asked. My heart dropped. That evil magic killed my family earlier. And now they want me to learn it. Would it keep me safe, or hurt others? I stared at them. I may need them... But is it worth this evil magic?
That's all for today. I'll probably make Chapter two tomorrow. (In doing this because I have a lot of time on my hands right now. I sprained my ankle very badly, and it may be broken. :( Oh well.)
