You shake your head no, silence…
“I see..” she turns her back on you and walks deeper into the catacombs; trusting her, you follow nearby, almost bumping your front legs into her hind ones. “I guess we’ll have to come to this” she turns to you one last time, you stop in your tracks, standing right in the middle of the room. You watch as your mother walked past another threshold, leading outward to another hallway.
“Oh hey wait up!” you call out to her, as you attempt to rear up beneath the low roof of the small room, you make it about halfway to the door before it slams shut in your face. Your mother turned and looked at you through the bars. “Huh? What’s this?” you ask her as a smirk forms on her face.
“No worries honey, I’ll be able to take care of things for now, until then you just wait here for everything to be finalized.” She turned around, her long fur trailing behind her as she swiftly began to part from the gate. You reach out your hands from between the bars and call out to her as she laughs and pads away.
“Hey! Wait! What?” your mind races, you have no idea how long you’re going to be down here, or even what’s going on. Eventually days and even weeks pass and she never returns. You feel like you’re on your last leg, dehydration being the worst of it. Though you’ve prolonged your life with the trickling of sewer water down the dank tunnel walls. Time continues to pass, and life goes on, even though it may be without the princess.
