After the Fall: By Chance
The alleyway appeared deserted. Jesr paused in the shadows he was prowling silently through, triangular ears alert as he listened. His smoky gray fur allowed him to blend in neatly; the splotch of white that ran down his broad chest to his stomach was safely covered by the sleeveless, mottled gray tunic he wore over matching pants and soft, dark gray boots.
Somewhere ahead, his quarry had either halted or ducked into a hiding spot, possibly sensing he was being tracked. Moving slowly, Jesr probed the darkness with intent, green gold eyes. When he spotted movement, it appeared directly on his left as a shrouded figure stepped forward.
