She was not afraid. Fear was for cubs. She was going to go make her name as a huntress, brave and strong like Huntress Skyfire had been! Never mind that it was her first time doing so, or that her wolf friend was skeptical of their chances with the wind blowing at whim this way and that.
It was her first solo hunt; she was not coming back to the Holt empty-handed. That would show Bearclaw she was strong! It would make Skywise stop smirking at her.
She had made up her mind, and she was as stubborn as Treestump.
