Prudencia and her droid Romu had successfully annihilated all clan members hidden within the caves and were about to leave the secret hideout when they tripped upon a dusty metallic container. The girl kneeled down to inspect closer, only to find a frightened little rollerrat within. The creature had witnessed horrific events over the past months, the worst being watching as it's parents, sisters and brothers were one by one, caught, grilled and devoured by the evil humans who had inhabited these caverns. But this rollerrat had somehow managed to go unnoticed by hiding itself well. Now it naturally assumed that Prudencia was one of "them" and thus it's first reaction was to attack ferociously to defend itself. But the girl had a gentle aura about her and soon calmed the creature down. It was not long till the rollerrat sat beside Prudencia in front of the roaring fire to warm itself up. The creature felt fear no more and the trembling had subsided. In fact it now stood absolutely still in a trance as it let the female human caress it, enjoying every second of the attention it was getting. Those months hiding alone in the darkest coldest cavern corners had been lonely and traumatizing, for rollerrats are very sociable creatures amongst their own. Prudencia lucklilly had some food packed along for the mission and offered the rollerrat some, which it ate quickly. Afterwards the party left the caverns and travelled to an area nearby inhabited by other rollerrats. The girl smiled softly as it watched the furry ball roll off to creatures of it's kind, and turned in the other direction where the sun was setting. "Romu, our mission was successful in more ways than one, let's go home!"
