The portal drops you back in the same place you were before you met Ammit and Teidra and you continue down the path. You walk for quite some time before the forest thickens considerably and darkens so much, you can barely see your hand in front of your face. You begin to panic slightly because you start to trip over fallen logs and branches. This continues for some time until suddenly, you feel something furry brush against your arm. You o_o' and stumble away from whatever it was but you continue to feel the same sensation across your bare arm. Not good. You break into a slight jog but trip over something and go flying.
There's a burst of laughter, harsh and dark. You attempt to struggle to your feet but find a black figure sitting directly in front of you. One of the creature's forelimbs glitters metallic in the straining sunlight that filters down from the forest canopy.
"Serves you right, trespassing in private lands," the Kat snarls, lashing her tufted tail. "You're lucky I didn't pluck out your intestines and not even give you a chance to get out of here."
The Kat is a black raveeness with white head markings and a smattering of scars across her head and shoulders. One of her forelegs is completely robotic; you can see shimmering red bits and blue wires on various parts of the limb. The Kat narrows her eyes while you inspect her.
"Get going, now, otherwise I'll be glad to practice my hunting skills. How lucky for me, that I have perfect night-vision so I could always track you down if you don't get out of here quick enough. Now GO."
You scramble to your feet, wincing from the various cuts and scrapes on your body, and stumble away.
