“I’ve ‘felt’ the threat deep inside me for months and that feeling grows ever stronger. Think about times when you just knew something was about to happen.”
They all had, to some degree, that feeling and each told of it in turn. But most often they realized the feeling too late to be proactive and act on it.
“This is your first and most important lesson: How you must open your mind to such feelings and to understand their meaning.”
Ringo had no sooner finished speaking when all experienced such a feeling, a premonition, if you will, of something…
Season VI, Chapter 8, Episode 46 Dog Adventure 5:
The premonition experienced by Ringo may have been initiated from the 21st Century—and the epic battle between Snowstorm and Ringo’s brother, Renegade.
The battle went on for hours with neither wolf gaining a significant advantage over the other—back and forth—slashing and dodging with neither seeming to tire.
His name was LoneWolf and he was the elder son of WolvenKing Sakima-Chaska-Heammawihio [Ringo], and aptly-named; He made it clear when barely older than a mere cub that he was not interested in suceeding his father to the throne.
And so the next in line for the throne, Buegonguig (Hole-in-the-Sky) in the common tongue, Hector, was completing his training at the paws of Kuckunniwi-Ogimaa [Cujo-Little Wolf-Leader] and Sauvage LeChat.
Curious at hearing the noise of Snowstorm & Renegade’s battle, Hector, Cujo & Sauvage quietly moved towards the sound and saw… “It’s my uncle, Renegade, and one who I don’t know.”
“That is Snowstorm, my young Hector, watch and learn; but be silent,” LeChat thought this would be instructional for her young student. This would prove to be a very rare mistake.
Suddenly the battle was over and Renegade lay dead at the feet of Snowstorm. Hector involutarily let out a long death-howl for his uncle—several of Snowstorm’s wolves hear him and began to run towards the three.
Cujo, part beagle, began to bay as she ordered LeChat & Hector to flee. LeChat knew better than to argue and she and Hector made their escape…
The fearless Cujo prepared for battle, “AR-ROOO!!! AR-ROOO!!! AR-ROOO!!!”
A battle she could not win…
