The forest was deathly silent, unsettling to the young dog as he walked along at a brisk pace. He thought that if he walked fast he could shake off the chill running through his bones but it was not working. It felt as if something was following him, watching him. But not one living thing was to be heard or seen in this seemingly abandoned forest. For all he knew, there were ghosts lurking around. The very thought made him jump at the sound of a falling twig.
"This is really creepy," Kogane Ryu mumbled to himself as he nervously continued to walk straight forward. Or as close as he could get to straight forward. It was hard to tell when everything looked almost the same all around you. The trees barely had any distinguishing marks except for maybe peeling bark or strange marks near the bottom of the trunk. Every detail he noticed seemed to amplify his fear. Why didn't he ask someone about a better route to travel? Oh, right. He had not seen any dogs for a while now since he got close to this place.
Finally, he came to a stop under a small patch of light breaking through the treetops. As the white canine tried to gather his thoughts, he came to a frustrating conclusion-he was lost. Kin groaned and looked down at his claws, unsure of how to continue from here. Maybe he should try to find someone who could help him get out of the forest? A small gust of wind startled him and his muscles tensed up, exposing his fear of the forests' unknown. Was anyone there?
