"Ow!" Qibli yelped. Rattlesnake slammed into him, bashing him against the wall.
"GIMMIE THAT!" She roared, snatching the fat lizard out of Qibli's talons.
Qibli stood up and growled. Rattlesnake and Sirocco spun around with glares as venomous as their tails. Qibli subsided quickly, and pretended he was growling up at the cloudy skys.
Rain. The clouds starting spitting down on him the way Sirocco and Rattlesnake always did. He hurried through the damp sand that clung to his scales. He made his way towards his tent when he suddenly remembered he was meant to bring something back for dinner!
If he walked in there empty clawed his mother would kill him! But I can blame Rattlesnake and Sirocco! They did take his lizard... but his mother would never take that as an excuse.
Qibli started to walk back out into the rain that had grown to a downpour. He shook his tail trying to get the wet sound out from in between his scales.
Qibli tried to think positive. Rain! We need rain. The desert hasn't had rain in forever! Oh rain means lovely flowers afterwards! But he could keep his mind going back to: I need to catch something quick before mother comes out looking for me!
"Qibli..." the smooth cut voice slithered over Qiblis scales, making him wish he could disappear forever! He new that voice. He knew that tone. His mother was not happy...
