“No. No. Stay away! Ughhh. No!”
He was out of breath and had to stop a moment to prop his weight against the trunk of a sturdy pine. He looked about anxiously but saw nothing lurking in the darker reaches of the forest.
He wasn’t sure how he got here. The only thing he knew for certain was that it was after him and if he paused here too long it would catch him.
He wasn’t sure what it was, whether it was beast or man, or a combination of both. What he knew with certainty was that it was a killer and that it wouldn’t hesitate a moment to snatch the life from him.
This thing, whatever it was had traveled a very long distance to get here, just as he had done so many years ago. He knew this but didn’t know how he knew this. He was nothing like this… monster.
Then he saw it. It was scrambling through the underbrush, its eyes darting in one direction then the other. It was searching for him. Though he didn’t think it saw him it was moving progressively closer. It wouldn’t be long before its eyes would stumble upon him.
He couldn’t wait here any longer. He was easy prey just standing here leaning against the tree. He pushed off the tree and began running again.
He wasn’t as fast as he was at first. His rest was too brief. He was still badly winded, and his legs felt like bags of cement. It caught him almost right away, leaping upon his back driving him face-first into the hard ground.
He pushed, squirmed, and twisted trying to roll over onto his back. At the same time, he expected to feel the death blow smashing into him at any moment.
