Shhh! Don’t make a noise. It will hear you. And keep to the darkness, for its eyes are as sharp as its claws.
See how it seems to slumber. Do not be fooled. It listens, waiting to pounce. We are not the only ones with empty bellies.
Stop! Listen! Do not seek to impress. Survival will impress enough, and providing will do even more than that.
Go forward. Creep slowly. Stay quiet.
What is that fool doing. He is getting to near the beast.
See how the beast holds its breath. Run away!
Too late. He won’t have a chance now.
Turn away. He is a plaything now.
