When I came across the scent it was weak but I could tell he was definitely the prey I was looking for. I turned and followed the scent into the forest. As I traveled deeper into the forest the light quickly faded as night fell. The dark didn’t slow me down as my eyes adjusted rapidly to the change in light. I saw a fork in the path in front of me.
Which direction do I go? I listened to my surroundings and sniffed for clues. Stopping abruptly and becoming as rigid as a statue I lifted my face into the crisp night air. I can smell it but still can’t hear it. If I could just focus and figure out which direction the smell was coming from… Then a thought occurred to me. I dropped to the ground and lay my ear to the cold soil. Success! There was a light resonance of footsteps scampering off to the left.
