Written for Challenge 310: Roar at dw100.

Summary: Just because something sounds intimidating doesn’t mean it is.

A deafening roar split the night. Rose yelped and huddled close to the Doctor, clutching his arm.

“What was that?”

“Native wildlife,” the Doctor said, unconcerned. “Nocturnal. Nothing to worry about.”

There was another roar, this one sounding much closer.

Rose glanced around nervously, seeking the monsters responsible for the noise. “Sure of that, are you?”

“Perfectly sure. They won’t hurt you; they’re more scared of us than we are of them.”

“I wouldn’t count on that,” Rose muttered.

“Look, there’s one!”

Rose followed the Doctor’s pointing finger and giggled; the creature was no bigger than a rabbit.

“Told you.”
