A Twig Breaks In The Woods

A quiet afternoon exploring the yard when a twig breaks in the woods. The Little Prince goes on full alert and watches for movement.

Who goes there? - a twig breaks in the woods
Who goes there?

We were enjoying a beautiful, if cold, day in the backyard. Canines were sniffing and Hu-Dad was shivering, but no one was in a hurry. Then, a sound. A twig breaks in the woods. Typhoon searches the shadows for an approaching threat, but nothing is spotted. A few minutes pass and things return to normal. And, no, we have no clue what was out there.
