Blackclaw turned his sad glare to Longtail

"You did this... You horrible leaf nibbling twit! Revenge is my word. And I shall have it. One of these days I shall have it. You just wait."

He lowered his head looking at Kragoth and without looking up at Longtail

"My brother... what has your kind done with him? Where is he?"

Littlefoot came up to stand beside Longtail.  "Many have gone through what you did, you are not the only one." he said.

Mim is standing a short ways off watching what is going on.  She points to one side, "He is there, waiting till the elders," She said, taking a moment to swallow a crawler she had in her hand, "Decide what shall be done with him. He is unharmed, but restrained."

Longtails face remained devoid of emotion as he replied "Sounds to me like you are out of options, your father is gone, your brother is our prisoner, and you are most likely too wounded to continue a fight.....so what do you do now?"

"What do you expect?" hissed Blackclaw "I'll leave your little valley home, and you and your friends can live happily ever after... isn't that how the story usually ends?"

Longtail still kept his face blank as he replied again..."Normally yes, but with you I'm betting you are going to want revenge on me or someone here in this valley, and if I were to guess you'll be back very soon with a schem to get back at us."

"Maybe..." responded Blackclaw dully, with that said he turned and started to make his way deeper into the forest, only glancing back once to look upon his dead father. He then proceeded further until he vanished into the dark shadows of the thick forest.

Longtail looked back to the others and asked "Hey Denton...are you okay?" he then looked over to his Aunt Mim and said "I think we should let him go, even if they do come back....they won't be any real threat."

Denton, who had remained quiet for the majority of the battle stepped forward and nodded slowly

"I'm okay." he said, though the trembling of his body was notable.

"Ca-can we go home now?"

Grandpa longneck chuckled and said "Of course Denton. Come along children...lets' all go back to the center of the valley, and join the others. Our adventure is over."

Soon enough they all made their way towards the center of the valley. Agnog was bound and laid in the center where the adults and children were meeting. All eyes were on the captured Sharptooth, some curious, some frightened, some with the expression of wrath in their eyes

They all wanted to know what was to be done with this tresspasser

"I say kill him!" Shouted one voice "He knows a way in, he'd tell others of it and bring more trouble!"

"No, just cast him back into the beyond where he came from!" Shouted another "Keep him bound and gagged the way he is, maybe he'll starve to death!"

"Why dont we just keep him as a prisoner?" sugested another "Maybe we can learn a bit about his kind by studying his ways"

They all turned to look just as Granpa Longneck and the others approached the group

Grandpa longneck looked upon the group of elders that had gathered and said "I believe we should keep him for a short while, only until some of us can learn to speak a little sharptooth so we can better understand how to counter there attacks." Longtail then nodded from atop Grandpa longnecks head as he replied "I can already speak a little sharptooth myself, so keeping him might be a good idea! What do you think Aunt Mim?"

Mim thought for a moment, "It may be a good idea to keep him for a while, see if we can learn some things from him.  Though he may escape.  And as for learning sharptooth perhaps Chomper may be willing to each those who want to learn, he speaks both languages and anyone else who knows sharptooth, even if just a little.  Plus he may know some things about other sharptooth he learned from his parents and can tell us the best ways to keep this one here fed." She said.  "Though if we do learn about him he'll likely learn some things about us as well." She then added after thinking.  "I'd be willing to try to learn sharptooth if I can."

Grandpa longneck nodded his head as he replied "Then it sounds like we all agree, the sharptooth stays, but under constant supervision...and should he escape, we will post guards at every exit, to make sure he can't tell any other sharpteeth how to get in!"

Longtail then glided to the ground below and asked Denton..."So how was your first adventure here in the valley?"

Denton looked at Longtail, still slightly shook up from his first major adventure

"I guess it'll just take some getting used to." he said and he tried to break a smile

just then a familiar voice broke the wind "Denton? My child, I've been so worried about you!"

"Mother!" cried Denton and he ran to meet her, she was amongst the other grownups who were discussing the captured sharptooth.

She lowered her head for him and he nuzzled up against her.

"I'm glad your okay. My dear Denton." she said calmly.

"It was my new friends who saved me, momma." said Denton, he smiled and turned to look at the other children

"You were right about them..." he said looking back up at his mother "They would treat me as if I were one of their own."

"I'm glad you've learned this, child." said his mother with a smile. "I was beginning to fear you'd never leave the nest."

Denton smiled and nuzzled some more. Soon he'd rejoin with his new friends and as the time progressed, so did many new adventures. He'd learn more about the Great Valley and those who lived their. He'd learn new games, even learn songs as well as to fight his own shyness.

Though meanwhile, a lone dark figure would be contemplating and plotting a terrible event that could destroy the bliss of the valley.

Blackclaw's Revenge would come soon.

To be continued...
