Okay. And thank you!
Alright...let's see if this is good.
They were as quick as lightning; the bandits only seeing mere blurs as the door swung open. They were thrown back into the ice walls and slammed face-down to the floors. Some were even given a high-kick to the ceiling.
A snow leopard looked up after being given a merciless beating from 'the blurs'. As the bandit began to look up, he saw all of the other fellow bandits were knocked out.
Flora stood tall before the bandit; glaring down with her red eyes. The bandit then let himself fall unconscious. The red and white furred fox looked over at her friends who had just finished defeating their opponents.
The clone Athina clapped slowly as she looked at them with a flat expression. "Bravo," she said slowly and sarcastically. You're all so fearless. All of you, facing six bandits." She rolled her eyes and put her hands on her hips.
Li whacked the back of clone Athina's head and faced her friends. The black-necked crane gave them a smile and said, "Good job guys."
The South Chinese Tiger began examining the room, now that the fight was over. The clear, frozen floor was now scratched up, with a few cracks here and there. Then he saw a few little baskets in the far corner of the room. He quickly ran to them. His stomach growled loudly for even the smallest bit of food.
As he flipped open one side of the picnic basket, he saw only one sandwich. He began searching through the others. They had even less. Half an orange. One dumpling. The bottom of a basket, stained with what seemed to look and smell like teriyaki sauce. Leon's stomach still roared for food, despite the slim findings.
He looked over his shoulder to find his friends looking at him excitedly. Their expressions were so optimistic and merry. They were all excited and anxious for some food. He was as well, until he saw what they had to choose from. These few things wouldn't be enough for them. They were starving. Before they knew it, they wouldn't have the strength to fight and search for their friends. Going against the mastermind behind this plot wouldn't even be an option.
Skylar dashed over to Leon who stood up as she approached him. "So? Let's dig in!"
Leon looked back at what they had. "There's not enough to fill us," he told her.
Skylar's gleeful attitude was washed away. Skylar's blue eyes, alive and vibrant, turned somber. "Well, there's enough to hold us until we find more, right?"
Leon was silent. "I'm afraid not," he admitted. He gestured toward the baskets so she could see what they had to chose from.
The others began to follow to see what was wrong; all except Li Sun, Crane, and the clone Athina.
"Do you really think I look beautiful?" Li asked Crane.
The black-necked crane gently caressed her face and beak with his wing, "Beautiful is simply an understatement. You're much more than beautiful, Li."
Li blushed at his complement. The clone cheetah moaned and stated, "Pathetic!"
"Quiet," Li told her sharply. "And if you wanna talk about pathetic," she began with her brown eyes narrowed, but Crane put his wings on her shoulders and told her to relax.
"She's not worth it."
"Hey guys!" Li, Crane, and the clone looked at Han Kai. "Come over here so we can split up the food."
"Alright! Let's eat!" Crane said happily. He placed his wing over Li's shoulder as they began walking towards the group. He stopped in his tracks as he remembered the cheetah. When he turned back to get her, she was already out the door.
"I'll help you," Li told him, but was surprised by his response.
"No. Stay here. I...I don't want you to get hurt," he said in a rush. He instantly flew out the door and after clone Athina.
She stood there confused. Crane knew that she could defend herself. She was the guardian of her grandfather's village, not to mention that her grandfather was Master Stork, and she had Samurai skills and did Kung Fu. She wouldn't be the one getting hurt. Li disobeyed Crane's orders and followed them. She wasn't going to let her Crane go after the clone by himself.
