“Footfalls echo in the memory Down the passage which we did not take Towards the door we never opened” -T.S. Eliot

Jadyn’s thoughts began to drift as he waited. Thoughts of his Family, of the happiness his success would bring, of the shared food, and of the approval that he might win from Tayana. It was getting harder and harder to concentrate on the important things as thoughts of both Tayana and Merina occupied his mind more. He fought to keep his mind on the hunt but it drifted into thoughts of Tayana as he waited, recalling the way her hips swayed as she walked. She was a few years older than him and had more experience— of that he was sure. She enticed him with her long black hair, fluttering eyelashes, and curvy body that she accentuated with clothing selected to enhance her curves. She tantalized him with long, lingering stares and quick, soft touches that always left him craving more. …

“In the Game of Life, less diversity means fewer options for change. Wild or domesticated, panda or pea, adaptation is the requirement for survival.”  —Cary Fowler
Hunched low on their mounts, the riders clung to their Companions as they loped swiftly and silently over the sea of gently swaying prairie grass in the pre-dawn glow of a late summer morning. The band of brothers, a ranging patrol of the Village’s Warriors riding bareback astride their Companions, tracked their quarry’s movements as it crept closer toward their home. Long grass and sedges tickled the bottoms of their hand-sewn leather shoes as the dogs of the new world loped in great, leaping strides beneath them.
