As Jungle Princess and Huntress Wizard walked farther into the woods, both of them realized how fearless the other was. Neither Jungle Princess nor Huntress Wizard showed any sign of fear, despite the darkness and eerie noises that surrounded them. Once they had walked into the forest a significant distance, Jungle Princess crouched down and scooped up some of the moist dirt. She lifted it up to her nose, and sniffed it a few times before pointing her spear to the north.
"This way" she said, proceeding to walk in the direction, with Huntress Wizard walking beside her. Huntress Wizard was not used to the jungle setting; she did most of her hunting and training in the forest. She was intrigued by the strange plants, and the small and bizarre animals that darted away before she could get a good look at them. She sighed as they continued on. "Are you sure you know what you're doing?" Huntress Wizard said, her voice conveying a bit more rudeness than she intended.
Jungle Princess scowled. She took great pride in her tracking skills, and any insult to it was worse than calling her mother a fat sack of butts.
"Of course I do" she said. "Well, I'm sorry" Huntress Wizard said, her voice tainted with sarcasm. "It's just that when I walk for a mile without getting anything done, I tend to question the person guiding me" Jungle Princess let out a light, animal-like growl. She sniffed the air for a moment. "Look, we're close" she said. Huntress Wizard's visions was as sharp as a well made dagger, and through the mist of the jungle she spotted a brownish figure in the distance. She grabbed Jungle Princess by the shoulder, and shouted.
"Look! Over there!" Huntress Wizard said, pointing at the murky outline of the Deer. Nearly instantly, Jungle Princess broke out into a sprint, her spear at the ready to impale the beast. The Deer turned around, it's hallow, unfeeling eyes stared directly into Jungle Princess's, causing her to hesitate.
Jungle Princess may have charged right in, but Huntress Wizard took a different approach. She used her magic to conjure up a rope, which she whipped upwards. It wrapped itself around a tree branch, which she used to swing towards the Deer, attacking it from above. She soared through the air, attempting to land onto the Deer. Instead of landing on the Deer, she landed on Jungle Princess. The two collided with a crack, as the Deer ran away.
Huntress Wizard got to her feet, brushing the dirt off of herself. Jungle Princess got to her feet as well. She looked into Huntress Wizard's eyes with a gaze of pure hatred, and saw that her eyes showed no remorse for her failure. Jungle Princess growled. "He got away" she said.
"No kidding" was Huntress Wizard's only response. "Just track him again"
Jungle Princess held a finger up to her nose, and wiped away a bit of blood that had dripped from it. "I can't. You injured my nose" her voice had a nasily tone to it, confirming to Huntress Wizard that it was indeed out of commission. "So, what do you suggest we do?" Huntress Wizard said. "This is your fault, you tell me!" Jungle Princess shouted, throwing her spear to the ground. "If I was alone, I would have roasted that animal on a spit hours ago!"
Huntress Wizard leaned against a tree, groaning. She considered giving Jungle Princess a sarcastic rebut, but instead let out more moaning, before falling into silence. She stared at the sky for a moment, before proclaiming "It's getting dark, we should set up a camp"
Jungle Princess picked up her spear. "Let's find a clearing" she said.
The two women walked until they found a misty clearing between trees. Jungle Princess instinctively picked up some sticks, using them to form a makeshift shelter. Huntress Wizard used her magic to levitate the sticks, building her own housing. Jungle Princess looked at Huntress Wizard with disgust, before curling up in her shelter. Huntress Wizard sighed, laying down on the slimy dirt beneath her own shelter. She shivered, before wrapping her arms around herself to warm her. She wondered if her reward would be worth it. Then she imagined Princess Bubblegum's beautiful face, her eyes staring into hers, thanking her.
She slept warm and easily as thunder struck above her
