The sunset dripped it's way across the sky like the rippling of many colors on gray clouds. Darkness was beginning to snake it's way across the sky and Yoru braced himself for the coming night. His eye sight was enhanced in the darkness and his red bands would provide light but he knew all too well what lurked in cave's regardless of the time of day. The smell of decay flickered through his line of scent as the wind blew towards him and he growled deep in his throat. It was a soft growl so if the creature was blind, it wouldn't hear him.
The fluttering of wings fell on Yoru's ears and a small Hoothoot fluttered like a dying butterfly from inside the cave. It's wings were in tatters to the point that it was a wonder the thing could fly at all and its left eye was sliced open and leaking a fowl smelling liquid. The usually fluffy chest of the Hoothoot was open and congealed blood was just seen on the surface of the wound. Yoru's eyes grew wide as he spotted the now gray heart through the wound on the creatures chest. It had stopped beating completely. The Hoothoot opened the place where its beak should be, which now was a mess of tissue fibers, and made the most horrific sound Yoru had ever heard as it began to launch itself at the black and red Umbreon.
A snarl rose from Yoru's muzzle as he stepped out of the way of the creature. He knew better than to touch it with any part of his body so he quickly aimed a swift followed by a shadow ball at the Hoothoot. Although the creature faltered in flight it was otherwise fine. It raised it's broken talons and prepared to dive bomb Yoru as he put up a wall of protect around himself. In the next instant he had fired such a powerful Shadow Ball that the Hoothoot's left wing was cut clean off.
The Hoothoot fell to the ground with another of its strange sounds and tried to crawl towards Yoru as he looked at it in disqust. His swift quickly finished the job and he jumped on a rock outside of the cave to watch the quickly ending sunset.
