BAIT AND SWITCH
WORD COUNT - 310
IT WAS A DECENTLY long walk from the Twolegplace to the Raiders' Run, but not so much that Almondpaw might be growing suspicious. There were still scattered cabins and houses out this way, perfect potential places for Brodie to claim to be going to. Almondpaw was trying to act the part of heroic escort, but as young as she was, she couldn't see the danger she was getting into.
NOW WAS THE tricky part. He had to make sure that there were other Raiders around to surround Brodie and Almondpaw before they had the chance to react. He wanted to make sure that neither of them tried to get away, not that he figured Brodie would. They had to be interred into the Raiders, instead of just waltzing in and joining, and he was certain that Almondpaw was at least going to try to put up a fight.
SASHA RAN AHEAD far in front of the two he was leading, but made sure to indicate to Brodie the direction he was headed in. He was practically shaking with excitement, his usual fears belittled by impending glory. He burst into the camp, looking around for any of the other Raiders. "Hey, listen up!" he meowed loudly. "I've got a couple mousebrains from the Twolegplace following me. I need help to surround them."
HE SMIRKED AND waited for any of the other Raiders to come to his aid. He hoped that nothing would go wrong to jeopardize his plot, and subsequently embarrass him. With luck, he might even receive a promotion to maybe a lieutenant... or even a captain. Sasha didn't mind dreaming big. Cats had been promoted for less, he figured. Usually it was mostly based on whomever had the most skill, and here he was to prove that he did indeed have it... even if often times his neurosis got in the way.
