All friends were re gather before night as decided, they were fully prepared and having necessary available weapons.
Ok friends, I am going to brief about tonight strategy “please listen to me carefully, you all were stay on the trees from different directions around the village, like as Lambert will be in the East, Edison in West, Edward in North and Randolph will look after to village from South area, while I will stay down and get connected with circumstances between all of you.
Just in case anybody from one of us needs help or get inform about animal, just in case he will make whistle loudly, so the other friends came there quickly, I want to kill he animal with strength of all friends, for the purpose I have arranged five whistles for us, Smith hand over one whistle to every friend..
Finally when we heardd the whistle signal, we all will try to approach immediately as soon as possible on the spot, so we could help to each other timely. Everybody will be bound for that no body will take action before alerted to others.
Got it any questions? Smith finished his words and looking facial impression of the friends.
I have one objection. Lambert said, this is not a good idea that we all stay on trees while you will be connecting us alone while staying down. It could be dangerous for you, that’s why I don’t agree with that proposal, well it is proposed that you should take somebody from village, I think anybody will be agree to do that in the best interest of this village without any agitation.
Yes Lambert is right, you should take two persons with you, the all friends were insisting for that.
Ok friends I agree with this, but actually you can observe, since the animal came into our area some incidents were reported but nobody from the village came for asking any help from them, therefore, I don’t want to get into danger to others life on that occasion. Hope you were understand my point, Smith said.
So let’s go we are getting late. Smith finished and they were starting to climb on the trees one by one from decided direction, even Lambert was stand remain with Smith.
Ok brother we are about to reach East side, you can choose your tree for spending the night, I think this one will be better, this is looking strong and highest than others tree, Smith suggested one tree, and Lambert was on the tree after two minutes, Lambert was still requesting to Smith that to get some persons with him from the village.
Smith said Goodnight to Lambert and moved ahead with slow steps. He was now alone, his Shot Gun was on his shoulder while his hands were in the pockets of the Rain Coat.
Smith looked towards the sky, the clouds were covering the sky fast that’s mean once again the rain is expected shortly.
The village seems ruins, nobody was seems in the village streets, even the pet dogs were also in the houses with their handlers.
Smith was walking between his friends’ positions one by one, and now he was near of Edison post, Smith called him loudly before some yards, so he can aware about him as well.
Hello Edison how are you? I am coming man, Smith said loudly.
Oh nice to see you again brother, hope all friends were on their locations. Edison asked of Smith.
Yes they are on their positions safe and sound. Smith replied.
Any update? Smith asked.
No friend it ok so far from my post, Edison replied.
Ok I am going towards next friend, I will be back very soon, take care, Smith said and move ahead.
Smith was frequently checking his friends one by one since last two hours, as well as he was also looking into the streets of the village, he was feeling tired, he almost completed three rounds all over the village and now he was thinking to take some rest when he will reach near the post of Edison again. This was the exact place where the incidence happened to day early in the morning.
Everywhere was darkness, cold and fog. Nobody even think about stay near of forest in these circumstances, But Smith was a brave person, all the people of the village knows him due to his courage and bravery.
It was about 12:00 A.M the rain had started once again, Oh no the path is already wet, how I can keep moving in this situation, Shit man, Smith was grumbling.
Gradually wind was increasing; he was taking fast steps as he wants to reach near of Edison.
After about five minutes he was under the tree of Edison, he called him loudly, Edison are you up there? But the Edison was not replied.
Smith had alerted when he hasn’t received response from Edison.
Smith called him two times again but he was not replying. Where are you man…? Smith grumbled and came exactly under the tree.
Smith was trying to see on the tree but due to heavy wind, the branches of the tree were waving badly, therefore he can’t see anything up there.
Smith decides to check him up on the tree, before this he starts to climb on the tree somebody pushed him behind, Smith was alerted, he drag the unknown person before him like a professional fighter.
I am Edison, please don’t fire.
Oh man what are you doing down there, Smith was surprised.
Sshhh, keep quiet, I saw and heard something under my tree five minutes ago when the rain was starts, but unfortunately I cant see the animal clearly it disappeared again, Edison explained.
Its not good, You did wrong friend. I was already warned everybody that do not try to come down from the tree any way, but you ignored my instructions, do you know how it could be dangerous? Smith seems still anger with him.
I am sorry friend my mistake, before this Edison can explain further more, Smith saw Edison was in the air on the hands of something.
The animal suddenly appeared from the behind bushes where was the Edison stands. Smith was knows, at this moment his any one wrong step make aggressive to animal. The animal was growling horribly and looking towards of Smith. The Smith can’t fire on it at this stage, as Edison was between the target.
Suddenly Smith pulls the trigger twice the whole area surrounds with the thunder of bullets.
Smith had fired in the air, so the animal release to Edison, but in result the animal entered into forest along with Edison.
Oh no It was a bad idea; Smith said and ran behind the animal.
Smith saw in the light of clouds that the animal was entering in the forest and trying to disappear.
Smith hit powerfully his gun on the head of animal from behind it.
The animal growl loudly, it leaves the Edison and turned around, it was looking with black looks.
Before Smith can reload his Gun the animal hit with its gauntlet on the neck of Smith.
Smith back off quickly but his Gun drop down somewhere. The animal was once again near to catch him.

Smith was feeling that a huge elephant pressing its abdomen. He was trying to release himself but he can’t.
The animal suddenly gripped the neck of Smith and starts pressing of it. Smith was knows that now he will be finished. The pain was uncontrollable.
Smith was using his full power to let him free from animal, but he failed to do that, at before his senses could be out of order he pressed his fingers in the eyes of animal.
The animal toss to smith aside. Smith dropped down flat he feels his back bone had broken.
But this was the chance to escape or call the other friends
Smith hardly stand in behalf of his strength and trying to come out of jungle, the animal was coming behind him.
The animal seems anger and following of Smith at the same moment, the Smith heard a Gun shot behind the animal, but he was lost his senses gradually.
Lambert was on his tree, he was trying to cover himself from the rainy drops.
Suddenly he heard voice of cruel growl of unknown animal, Lambert was knows this must be suspected animal growl.
Lambert was thinking that the voice is coming towards the Edison Post; he has to check it out his post that what happening there, but he was waiting for his whistle signal.
After some whiles Lambert heard gun shot twice, he came down from the tree as he can and ran towards the Edison post.
Lambert was on the spot within short period, he was calling loudly to Edison, but he was not receiving any reply from him.
When Lambert reached on the shooting place, a thunder voice came out of clouds and he saw in the clouds light that a huge animal moving towards a person.
He must be Edison, Lambert think and he bolted his revolver and press the trigger
The animal seems afraid due to revolver shots which are surrounds badly in the whole area.
The animal turned around towards the forest and disappeared init
Lambert reached quickly near of unknown person, he saw this was Smith, his eyes was closed.
Oh shit man, this is Smith, he was surprised, but where is Edison? He was grumbling, he was unable to understand the situation.
He drag to Smith on the safe place, and return towards the forest, he was knows if the Edison was alive he should be near of Smith.
Lambert calling to Edison loudly again and again, after some whiles, he saw somebody coming out from the forest.

This was my fault, I had sense the animal down under my tree, I want to confirm therefore I came down from the tree, at that moment the animal attack on us un expectedly, we cant controlled it even I lost my sense, and I don’t know any thing after this, Edison replied with sorrow.
Ok we should discuss about it later, let’s go back to village Edward said and they all move forward.

His mother was also near of them and hearding their conversation, un-expectedly she asked of Freeman, why the people of the village were gathered in front of our house?
Madam the animal killed some peoples again today early in the morning and the people of the village want to migrate to another village, Freeman replies very innocently.
Oh no, don’t tell me its very bad news, what’s going on she was grumbling having tears in her eyes.
Unbelievable, how the animal could attack two times during in one night, it’s impossible, Smith grumbled.
I never experienced circumstances like that entire of my life; the now due to fear the peoples of the village want to migrate. This is all happening due to one animal; I can’t believe that, Mr. John also was in sorrow.
Father why are you going up set like that just pray for me that I have been recovered quickly; I will trace and killed the beast. I will kill it, Smith was looking confident.

Now what would be our next step Randolph asked?
We will wait for Smith until he recovered. In this continuation I would like to inform you that Mr. John already advised to the people of the village, moreover in my point of view if the people of the village take care of themselves, I am sure we can avoid further people death rate. Lambert describes his suggestions.
I think you should take rest for two days as per Doctor advised; later on we will once again make the plan about killing of animal Edward Said
Ok friend now we are going and we will meet again very soon, after this all friends depart from the room one by one except of Lambert.
Dear, my family is in your house they want to meet with you; perhaps I will pick them after one hour. Lamberts said to Smith, and leave the room as well.
After some whiles somebody knocked the door of Smith’s bedroom, he can recognize this style of knocking.
Please come in, Smith answered quickly his heat beat was increased.
This was Diana; she was entered in the room having some fresh fruits in a beautiful hand basket.
Oh my God, what happened to you, Diana came near of him,
Don’t worry about this, these are minor wounds, they may heal within two days, Smith replied with love.
Why you are facing the animal continuously like that? For God sake leaves it for others. Another young person of this village may handle that animal, this is not only your’s responsibility. Diana has a chair near of him and was trying to convince him.
Actually I was insisting to mother since this morning, but she was avoiding me to take me here. I came here with heavy difficulties she was explaining her position, while Smith was just looking at her with a beautiful smile.
I can understand, the time is short your mother would be here any time, perhaps I want to show you something if you don’t mind, Smith replied in hurry.
Why not please do it, she replied with wonder.
Please just drag this side table aside, Smith requested of her.
Ok what is here? She asked, she was still looking surprised.
I will show you just do as I said, now aside the carpet from the corner, and look down there, you will see a basement door, Smith instructed to her.

Smith was waiting for her.
After some moments she came outside having nice and beautiful finger ring box.
Is that one? She asked with a smile.
Yeah dear this is for you, I want to give it to you on some special occasion but unfortunately I was getting busy with that animal, he replied.
She placed the ring box on the bed of Smith and reset all these things like they were before.
“Hum” can I open it now? She asked.
Sure, please do it. He replied.
Oh my God this is Diamond ring, how pretty is this, nice, looking very expensive, thank you so much, please put it on my finger by yourself, she requested with a nice smile.
Smith did that exactly, and she kiss to his lips with happiness. I love you so much she said.
At that moment they heard voice of footsteps; I think mother is coming here. Diana changed her sitting position on the nearly placed chair quickly.
Oh no he is badly injured. Diana’s Mother seemed worried when she saw of Smith with his wounds.
Hi Son how you feeling now, her mother asked.
I am perfectly alright, please have a seat. Smith welcomes of her mother.
They all were talking about the animal and about the current reaction of the people of the village, meanwhile Diana and Smith were looking to each other with lovely smiles.
Diana doesn’t want to leave him in this situation but, due to some social limits she was committed to go back her house, with her mother.
After about one hour Lambert came back and he gets back his family.
Mother can I ask one question please. Smith asked her.
Sure Son why not, she replied.
I think it’s the time, you need a helper, I mean to say that you should take rest in respect of kitchen business; Smith was unable to deliver his words correctly about Diana.
Yeah dear you are right, I can understand your desires, you don’t worry I will submit our proposal for Diana shortly after you had recovered, but you have to kill the beast first so you can enjoy your happiness perfectly, are you happy now? She replied at once.
Thank you so much, you are really a great mother, Smith was so happy.
Ok now you should take some rest and I am going to the kitchen for preparing lunch. His mother advised and departs the room.
Smith was on his bed and trying to get sleep, while he was still thinking about Diana, she was really loving and caring girl, he liked her very much.
Edward, Edison, and Randolph departed from the house of Smith, and they had decided, that they will try to kill the beast together at tonight without inform to Lambert and Smith, because Smith is already badly injured, while Lambert will be no agree with their proposal about killing plan of animal without informing of Smith.
According to their planning they gathered in night about 9:00 P.M they were loaded with their revolvers and knifes as usual, they were moving towards the field’s way, where as today early in the morning some people were killed by that animal.
May be, we found that animal once again near the incidence place, Edison said.
Yeah you are right; I had already heard of my father that, the wild animals must visits those place preferably where they lastly hunt something. Randolph was agreed with Edison.
After about distance of half mile they were exactly on the incidence place, there was thick forest all around them. They can’t see anything after two meters due to fog and darkness. It was horrible scene out there.
Let’s check it out around these trees, Randolph said and tried to look all directions.
After the complete search around them they came back on the path of fields again, there is no any animal seems around us, we should wait here for that animal, Edward said.
Ok we will stay here; maybe animal came back here. Edison gets down under the big tree.
Sure Edward and Randolph were agreed with him.
Why we are not using tree tonight, this was the best way to watch and kill the animal without any danger. Randolph suggests.
I think this plan will not work here due to worst fog, actually yesterday we were in the open air and we can see around easily. Edison replied.
They were under the tree and were busy talking about village issues; suddenly they feel the rustle behind them.
Oh be alert. I think something is behind us. Randolph stands up and trying to check it out.
Don’t move, I think the suspected animal is around us, Edison warned them.
They were bolted their revolvers and looking towards all directions.
At once a huge animal was appeared from the fog ahead of them. Oh my God what the hell is this? Edward was near to catalepsy.
Edward tries to run back to the village, he never expected the animal like this horrible shape, Randolph gripped his hand so he could not run. What are you doing? Don’t move, the animal will kill us.
The animal moves towards them very carefully. It was horrible.
Edison holds his revolver tightly, and his hand was quaver due to animal fear, at once Edison pressed the trigger of the revolver unexpectedly.
The forest Eco with the thunder of bullet, but unfortunately the fire had missed and cross near by face of animal. In the next moment Edison was in the hands of the animal. Edison feels thrombosis of his blood.
The animal growls and powerfully pressed the head of Edison even he died. The animal threw him aside.
Edward was knows the Edison had died. He came at once before the animal and pressed the trigger of his revolver, the bullet touch the shoulder of the animal but could not wound it badly.
The animal was looking more than aggressive after its wounds. Before this the Edward fired on it again, the animal gripped him from his neck and separates his neck from the body and threw him aside, as dissimilar.
The Randolph was checking his revolver again and again like as his gun was jammed and not working.
The animal was in a bad mood and crushing all things coming before it.
Randolph was badly afraid with current situation, he turned around and wants to escape, but he drops down at once due to slip of his foot
The animal came near of him and pressed his head with its big foot, Randolph wants to scream loudly for help but he can’t and died on the spot.
It’ was 6:00 A.M early in the morning. Smith was taking breakfast, in his bedroom along with his parents.
I think somebody knocking the main door of the house, Smith’s mother asked of Mr. John.
Yeah I heard that, God knows who would be at this time, Mr. John grumbled.
After some moments Freeman came in the room and informed that the people of the village are migrating to another village, due to animal attack last night again.
Oh No. Mr. John has been stand up.
Sir, please pardon me, If I am interrupting, but don’t go outside at this time, the people of the village were looking very anger, freeman warned of Mr. John.
No I think I have to stop them, because they will never cross the long distance of the forest in the presence of that animal. Smith was getting stand as well, ok let’s go father, I am going with you.
Smith you should rest Son I will look into the matter, you don’t worry. His father was not ready to take with him.
Let’s go Freeman, Mr. John said and they were departed from the house.
The peoples of village passing before Mr. John without any query or any conversation, like they were trying to ignore them. Mr. John was trying to ask but they were not replying him.
Mr. John please let’s goes back to home, they will not listen to anyone at this time, Freeman once again requested.
Before Mr. John leaves, one woman came near of Mr. John, she was the mother of Edward.
Mr. John dead body of my young Son, is waiting for you in the graveyard, will you tell me, how I would spend my remaining life without him? My husband had already died and I have one daughter as well, therefore I am going to another place with these peoples where I can survive along with my daughter, she was weeping loudly.
Oh my Great God. What’s going on? Please help me to face the situation. Mr. John was having tears in his eyes, at that time an old man of the village was crossing front of Mr. John he stopped at once and informed that last night three young boys namely, Edison, Edward and Randolph were killed by the animal, and we are now leaving this village forever. Finally I am requesting you please you should leave the village alongwith your family, other wise nobody live alive in this village. The old man finished his sentence and get step ahead.
Lambert was coming towards Mr. John, unfortunately, the village going to vacate, we lost our true friends last night. Lambert explained.
Yeah Son, I am already aware with that, what about your family, are you migrating as well? Mr. John asked.
No Mr. John this is our village I have born there, and want to die here instead of run away. I never let to my friend Smith alone anyway till death. Lambert was emotional.
I appreciate that, good, Ok let’s go home; I cannot face of Smith at this time with a pair of bad news. Mr. John said.
Sure Sir, let’s go, Lambert replied.
Mr. John, Lambert and Freeman were coming back to the house, with sadness.
What happened father? Smith asked.
I have some bad news for you Son; don’t take it on your heart, that the people of the village are migrating and secondly your friends Edward, Edison and Randolph were killed by that animal on the farms path. I don’t know what happened and what were they doing there, perhaps this is true they are no more.
Please don’t tell me that. It’s impossible Father, where is Lambert? Smith asked again.
I am here and believe me, its hard to believe, but they did not informed me accordingly about any hunting program of last night, may be they want to kill the animal by themselves surprisingly, well I am coming from graveyard, Lambert explained.
It’s very bad news it’s really un-believable, there was tear in the eyes of Smith.
I think we should face the truth with braveness, as the remaining families in the village needs immediate help, and they were still looking towards us. Lambert trying to calm down of him.
I had already sent to Freeman to check out how many peoples are remaining in the village his father explained.
So what are you thinking about to do at this stage? Mrs. John asked.
Let come back to Freeman then I will decide, his father replied and depart from the room.
Lambert was sitting with Smith and they were discussing about their friends that why they planned to kill the animal without informing them.
Meanwhile after one hour, Mr. John and Freeman came inside the room again, and informed that there are 32 people are left in the entire village including women, and children’s.
Mr. John decided that the remaining peoples were staying in our house in one place until the animal is not killed.
Our house is built with Cement and steel, its windows and doors are not breakable by any animal.
I have also planned that, we will send two messengers to call and report to the police which is far away and having walking distance about two days.
I am sure if these messengers successfully reached to the police station, then the Government will must send troops for us and I think official troops will easily kill the animal with heavy ammunition, until we would stay safely in our house. Mr. John explained in detail.
Yes these are good ideas; Smith was agreed with his father.
After this Mr. John depart from the room along with Freeman.
Lambert was standing keep quiet
Is any thing wrong? Why you standing keep quite like this, Smith asked of Lambert.
Actually I am thinking that this will be burden on your family, that deal with almost 32 people even for their lunch accommodation and other necessities, Lambert replied with agitation.
This is our responsibility to take care of remaining people as our best, we will manage mutual cooperation for these people you don’t worry, Smith said.
In the mean time Mr. John came back in the Smith room and advised to Lambert that I think you have to go with Freeman and call the remaining people of the village, Mr. John said to Lambert.
Ok Sir sure, I am going, Lambert replied and depart with Freeman from the room, without asking any question.
Son you may take some rest I am going to discuss the matter with your mother, so we could arrange accommodation for the people of the village, Mr. John said and leave the room as well.
Smith lay down on the bed and thinking about his friends, this was unforgettable loss of his life, he never forgets them entire of his life, he was thinking while his eyes were closed.
