A flash of color was momentarily visible through the leaves. Glory stared at where the color was last seen, breathing hard. Something was circling her. A moment later, a cheetah appeared, its long teeth bared. Glory blinked in shock. It couldn’t be! But yet, here it was. The cheetah from the school. There was no other way it could be a different one. The sound of a padded feet hitting the dirt, sounded behind Glory. She whirled the opposite direction. The tiger was stalking toward her, its long tail flicking. There was no doubt left in her mind. These were the two from the school. The advanced on her slowly, mouths open, snarling. They had her surrounded. She watched their stealth and grace as they circled around her. She had always heard that your life flashed before your eyes when you were about to die. Unfortunately, that wasn’t the case for her. She was painfully aware of every detail. The beauty of the felines, even though they were here to kill her. The curiosity of what the Montez’s really were. She was never going to find out.
