Cassandra found her friend weeping quietly outside the entrance to the den she shared with Julius and their brood of little Stingers.
“What’s wrong? Cassandra asked.
Sniffling, Miranda picked up a little one who had just been jostled off her back. “Clark,” she reprimanded, “stop pushing Louise off Mommy.” She replaced the girl and whispered to Cassandra, “Julius has gone to fight against the General’s army.

“I am, but lots of The Arids’ soldiers know who he is, and they don’t spare traitors. What if he doesn’t come back? What will I do without him?”

I’m sure there were more spies than just that slimy Stinger.”
