Nat and Tiny were walking through the newly growing forest. Trees were growing back to full health, but many didn't make it through the fire. New trees started to grow from the old ones. The forest almost looked as good as new " I'm amazed it only took 3 weeks for the forest to go back to being normal. " Nat said," It grew faster than I thought it would." Tiny agreed," It's mainly from the help of Rose. She helped sprout new trees and grow bushes. And also the ashes. Plants seem to grow better in them. I just hope that the animals come back, the forest wouldn't live completely without them." They walked deeper and deeper into the new forest," Thanks for coming out with me to check on the animal feed piles. It will be faster now," Tiny said. "Just be glad that Chrome was able to take my place at the restaurant." Nat replied," I know, he's awesome and sweet...ah! Um, u go this way, and I'll go over here. We shouldn't get too lost, the forest is still small. See ya later Nat!" Tiny zei and ran off. " Bye! Good luck!" Nat zei back. She had a feeling that Tiny might have a crush on Chrome. She laughed and walked where Tiny pointed, looking for the feed pile. When she got to the first one, some flickies and deer were eating at. meer and meer were coming back but slowly. She was about to leave to check on other piles when she heard talking," Hurry up Scar! I want to get back as soon as possible!" It was Selena and Scar from the Wicked Ones," I'm hurrying! It would be faster if u helped carrying the water." Scar replied. " I don't want to spill it on me. If we get ambushed and I'm wet, I won't be able to use my brand powers." Selena said. " Who's going to ambush us out here?" Scar asked. " Anyone! Rose of Thorn of even that stupid, stupid cat, Tiny! And were also in big trouble with the police since we nearly destroyed station square." Nat was getting angry at Selena for calling her friend stupid, but had to hide, since they were coming her way. " Hold on Selena, I need to take a break. This water is heavy." Scar zei stopping in front of the struik, bush Nat hid in." Fine, but make it snappy." Selena said, upset. Scar put down the buckets and sat down on a burned stump. It was badly burned, so it crumpled underneath him and he fell backwards. Nat couldn't help but giggle. Selena quickly glanced towards the struik, bush and without hesitating, she burned the struik, bush to the ground. Nat shot out in a instant, not wanting to get burned," Well, it looks like we have a spy on our hands." Selena said. Nat tried to run and leave, but Selena surrounded the area in fire," you're not going anywhere. I think Bard might want to keep u as a hostage. But I can't have u struggling on the way there. Maybe just a quick blast of fire, that might knock u out. of worse, but why should I care? You're just an annoying fox." Selena aimed her hand Nat, a brand ball forming. Selena was about to brand when suddenly she was soaked with water," Ahhh!! What the-" she screamed and all brand in the area went out. Nat didn't take any chances and ran from the area. Selena turned around and saw Scar holding a bucket," WHAT ARE u DOING, u IDIOT?!" Selena yelled, furious that Scar was the one who soaked her," I didn't-" Scar started to say but was interrupted door Selena," Don't say a thing! I'll deal with u once I'm dry! Now we have to go back and get meer water from the stream!" Selena grabbed the empty bucket and hit Scar with it. They started to head for the stream. Nat was still running, when Tiny jumped in front of her," Nat! what's going on? I heard screaming and- Why are there burns on your arms?" " I explain....later. We need to leave... Before that pyromaniac gets us." Nat said, trying to catch her breath. Tiny understood what she meant," Ok, lets go." Tiny zei and they ran towards town.
