" As the babies awoke from their slumber, their eyes were blurry and their legs were wobbly and uncoordinated. They all tried to snuggle against their mother but she was still and cold. They tried to nurse, but her milk was cold and unwelcoming. There was something wrong and all of them knew it. Being the only girl Penny was getting very nervous. Only three and a half weeks old and still hardly able to walk and see, all of their chances of survival were slim to none. But even though she was still young Penny knew she had a mission in life. And that was to help all of those in need. And she also knew that the weak would never last."
Seven Months Later
" (April) The spring air entered the burrow and Penny twitched her little black nose. She was not the sole survivor though. Rikky, and Landon had made it through the harsh winter. But Landon wasn't doing so well. He had become ill and was dying. But she had faith that Landon would pull through. Boston hadn't made it past the second week. He eventually died of frost bite and hunger. But Rikky and Landon had pulled through and became strong for her and themselves. After finally realizing their mother was not going to awaken, she had made the decision to gather her remaining brothers, and left. They traveled for sixteen suns and moons before coming upon a tree in a secluded wood, with a pond and meadow nearby. The tree was an old Maple with crooked branches, twisted from 250 years and countless winter storms and water sucking summers. But under neath, after digging a little ways they had opened a crevice in between a plot of roots. And upon digging more the Earth fell away and opened through a tunnel which was about seven feet long, and about `8 inches high, into about a four feet of open earth with a dirt roof and the long tunnel to help protect from any predators. With a five foot long exit tunnel on the side. But after finding this and becoming joyous from their find they had to find out how to survive and let me tell that's a whole different story."
