The Coyote and the SnowThe hills behind the cliffs to the east were dusted with fresh snow that had fallen from the night before. The shrubs bowed under the new load and the landscape palette had changed from orange and green under the blue sky to white and black under a gray sheet of clouds that warned the winter weather wasn’t finished.The Coyote and the Snow by Ski-Machine
A few inches of snow wouldn’t have been too difficult to deal with at first but now that the new snow was added it made wading through the cold powder more tedious for the kangaroo rats of Skytown, so almost everyone had taken to their cactus holes or the tunnels beneath the city to keep warm and wait out the worst of the day. But not everyone was holing up, work had to be done so everyone was taking care to get as much done as possible so they could avoid being caught out in the next flurry.
First Tail and Second Tail were part of a small patrol sent away from the canyon to the hills to search for quail or other meat birds. The stores were running low on dried

“Gears.” Andrew pulled up along the side of the street. “Need a ride?”
“If you’re paying.” Gears climbed up onto the bench next to him and took off his cavalry cap, wiping his wrist across his brow fur. “You’d think this brisk weather’d cool me off after eight hours of the machine room.”
“Tired?” Andrew grinned as he slumped in his seat.
“Is your coat frilly and blue?” Gears snorted and spotted Jerri on the next corner, bundled up in two moth-eaten cardigans and a scarf as he headed home dow
Mr. Nice Guy Part 4Charlie watched Bo and the others talk and felt he was taking up space so he stepped back. The platform for the train station was crowded and the group closed in on themselves.

“I know you!” Darla looked at Ben with a smile. “At least I think I do. You worked here in the train station last winter, right? At a vendor stand?”
“I did.” Ben nodded. “I sold hot cider. With my neighbors.”
“Well, it’s good to meet you again.” Darla looked up at Isaac. “I have some good news for you too! But I’m starving, the food on the train smelled bad so I didn’t want to risk eating it.”
“Let’s here the good news.” Bo flipped the brim of Isaac’s hat playfully.
“Bo!” Isaac hissed.
“Not until I get some food.” Darla teased Bo and reached out towards Davey, who stood up and limped ove
Scars of the Past (Part 1) I awoke with a start, letting out a soft moan as I raised my hand to my head. It came back covered in blood. I tried to push myself up and let out a gasp of pain, sinking back down. Tears slipped from my eyes as I lay there, in too much pain to move, my blood dripping to the dusty ground.Scars of the Past (Part 1) by Supernova750
I don’t know how long I lay there, waiting to die, but I heard a shout behind me.
“Over there! Come on Bo!”
