That night, Husky woke to find himself alone. And a note where Cooro's bed once was. He sat staring at the note as if he was trying to read through the folds like he had x-ray vision. He slowly picked it up. Fearing the worst.
“Myrrha, out to find water. Be back before nightfall. -Cooro”
Husky nearly passed out after reading the note. He'd held his breath assuming Cooro had left him. A tear of happiness escaped without his permission and fell down his face. He laughed and realized how silly he was being, “Cooro wouldn't leave me like that. He's too clingy,” husky said to himself.
“I am not!” Cooro yelled form outside the tent. Husky screamed, startled by his friends quiet approach, “and what do you mean leave?” he said as he entered the tent with two very full canteens. He sat on the ground and stared at him, puzzled.
“I was just afraid..” Husky hesitated, “I thought you'd left.. Because you were so adaman

Cooro sat quietly on the edge of a cliff staring sadly out across the starlit sand, “Cooro,” Husky called, “C'mon we have to go.”
Cooro glided down to Husky's side and tripped over a small hole in the sand. Husky stopped and watched Cooro slowly get up and sit on his knees, “I don't want to go to Sandra...” he mumbled.
Husky stared at him, silently wishing he could change what happened to Cooro, “We can't turn back now. We're almost there and those hunters will catch us if we go back...” Husky said smoothly, trying to get Cooro to stand.
“But Nana won't let me stay...” Cooro mumbled again, tearing up. Husky was getting tired of Cooro's pity party, after three days of slow movinqg and sudden fits of uncontrollable tears. What should've taken them a day and a half was taking them four whole days. Five if Cooro didn't start moving. The sun was coming up and they needed to set up their tent to sleep.

“Maybe you're just really tired, huh?” Husky choked, nervously stirring the fish and potato soup over the bright orange fire. Cooro shook his head and buried his face between his knees and chest. After an hour and a half of trying to convince Cooro he was just overtired, Husky decided to give it up. He looked up at Cooro's black wings, only visible by firelight, “I never noticed, his wings are so much bigger now than when we were kids...”Husky thought to himself.
“I'm going to sleep for a bit..” Cooro mumbled, then curled up into a ball on the forest floor. He wrapped his wings around himself and began to drift off.
“I'll wake you when it's time to leave..” Husky said quietly concerned. He sat in silence watching Cooro, almost glaring at his still form.
“Hey,” Cooro said suddenly, “you've noticed it too right?” Husky stopped staring and continued stirring his soup, “it's getting more diffic

“Myrrha! It's been three days already, how are we still in the forest!?” Cooro whined, dragging his feet behind him.
Husky looked up at the treetops, “Fly up and see what you can find,” he said out of breath. Cooro obeyed and flew past the top of the trees, he glanced around and spotted the city of Sandra. Farther away than it was supposed to be, “Why does it keep getting farther away!?”
Cooro flew back down and fell to his knees, “Cooro?!” Husky yelled concerned, “are you ok?” Cooro looked up at him, tears and snot covered his pitiful-looking face.
“Why can't we just be there...?” Cooro whined. Husky frowned and smacked him with his staff. He yelped and grasped his head.
“Quit whining! We'll be there soon,” Husky reassured him, looking off in the direction of their destination, “Now hurry up and transform! We don't want to run into any hunters. It's been three days but they were super

The thundering waterfall was deafening inside the cave, Varg had to cover his ears as he slept. Husky sat watch at the mouth of the cave. The pounding water only feet away, “How stupid is this?” he glanced over at his (And Cooro's) new companions, “Wolfie seems to be having trouble sleeping..”
“Hey Myrrha, you should get some sleep,” Cooro whispered softly, “we have a long day tomorrow.”
“I can't sleep...” he said quietly.
Cooro glanced at everyone sleeping, “they've been through a lot,” he mumbled. Husky glared at each of them, “where will we go after this?”
“We'll try to go to Nana's, but if we can't stay there we'll get supplies and stay out here,” Husky said firmly, “it'd be easier if they weren't here... We could get into Sandra much easier!” he raised his voice slightly making Kailah stir.
“Shh!” Cooro glanced at their new friends again, “don'

Cooro circled overhead, swooping down and swinging his axe at the hunters. Husky fought using his staff, while Kailah kicked and bucked, knocking the men senseless with her hooves. The hunters had decided to work together, to catch all the +Anima that got away. The woman and man from earlier were there, the other three men Husky was with were also. And two others as well, “I swear if I have any bruises after this I'm blaming you two!!!” Husky yelled at Cooro and Kailah. The young wolf anima male, whose only concern was the safety of the girl he was traveling with, didn't fight, he simply watched as the three anima fought against the hunters.
After many bruises and scratches, the hunters fled carrying their wounded and unconscious over their shoulders, “Are you two alright?” Cooro asked the strangers. Before they could answer Kailah shoved past Cooro and squeezed them.
“Varg! Calypso! I've missed you both so much!” she yelled, teary eye

The sun was shining brightly, the clouds gently, slowly moved across the sky. And the light breeze gently swept over the plains, as the three companions journeyed to Sandra, “I can't wait to get to Sandra!!!” Cooro yelled, as feathers grew from his back forming wings, stretching down his arms, while his wings grew larger than before. And his new tail feathers gracefully helped him steer in the wind, as he leapt into the air, “it's gonna be so much fun!!!”
“Calm down Cooro!” Husky yelled after him. As he watched him in the sky, he started to think that, maybe as they grow, their anima grows too. Maybe that's why their markings had gotten bigger. And also that, Cooro didn't have those tail feathers six months ago...
“What are you thinking, Myrrha?” Kailah asked cocking her head.
“Uhmm, nothing,” Husky answered strangely. He didn't like that Cooro got her to call him 'Myrrha' too. Shrugging, she looked back up at Co
