Michael licked his lips nervously as he replied, "No?" His answer sounded uncertain and his cheeks reddened with embarrassment as the horse made it sound like it was common knowledge. He watched the change of environment, silently noting that this was a different route to what Michael had taken. It was probably a quicker route back home. He kept quiet for a few moments, his attention turned towards the trees. He could have sworn he heard something, but he attributed that to the forest animals, talking himself out of worry. They were moving slower now, and Michael assumed it was due to the rough terrain that Kai was walking on.
His eyes flickered from side to side, feeling a little uneasy. "Do you..." he trailed off and shook his head, "it doesn't matter." He shrugged to himself, his grip tightening ever so slightly. He was in human form now anyway, it wasn't like a big bird could come swooping down to eat him as he was too big as a human. He assumed no predator would like their chances with a stallion and a human. His shoulders relaxed a little and he began to hum very softly under his breath.
This time, he heard the distinct sound of a growl and as he turned his head to look he saw a cougar. It sprung towards him in a matter of seconds and he didn't even have the time to scream as his back hit the sharp rocks and roots of the forest floor. He was weighed down by the cougar, it's bad breath in his face. He tried to batter it away as it went for his neck, using all the force he had in his hands. He let out a mighty yell as if to scare it off, trying to hit it's face. The cougar just hissed at him, clawing right back at him.
Notes: Michael needs some saving. Please save him.
