in her element



Tenacious
she whirled within her own circle...fur bristling...head shaking like mad
a squeal..a crack..rat with a broken back flung up to the rafters
digging in..hay flying..prying another one out she bit to shouts of "get em girl"

dust motes dancing...sun rays slanting through slatted barn walls, lighting the whole tableux
