The animal that pounced on Mackie looked like a skunk and a dog combined. “What the…” What is that animal? It looks angry and hungry. Maybe I could give it some food? That would be to big of a risk. It might get even more angry! Mackie tried to run away from the skunk like thing but failed. He instead landed in a hole that was a couple meters wide. He saw that the animal fell in too. Mackie would lose this battle no matter what. He didn’t have any weapons so he couldn’t fight the animal. All he had was a bow and no arrows. He had used all of his arrows for his meal the day before. The animal clawed at Mackie’s face and made his nose bleed like a faucet. Mackie threw his bow at the animal but the animal dodged his weak throw. The animal clawed at Mackie until Mackie was left unconscious. As the animal left Mackie, humans were sneaking up on the animal to kill it. “ATTACK” yelled their leader. The animal was caught by surprise and tried to make a run for it but died before it reached anywhere for an escape. “Bring this boy back home where he can be healed” the leader ordered.
