A loud high pitch screech echos from the forest. Xero turns around engaging his infered scanners.
"Sam...do you know what that was?" asked Xero scanning the forest.
A shadowed figure jumps from one tree to another. Small and quick with tenticles sprouting from its back. Using its tenticles to move it scurries through the snow. Soon more like it begin to emerge from under the snow and, like the first one, scurry around.
They havent seen Sam or Xero yet.
