(Barks, still angry from the fight with Ari’adni)
What would you know of the world girl!
(Takes a breath)
We are sorry. We… should not have shouted at you.
(With a bitter laugh)
We ARE a mean curr, girl. And we’ve been kicked away from fires since we were a pup. What do you see in us then? Pain? Anger? Anything wrong behind these eyes? Because we have seen things and done things you can not imagine and we have eaten more than our share of sleeping Nyverians.
(Gives her an evaluative look)
You are no innocent pup either, until proven otherwise. Would you have yourself thrown to the desert?
