My Thirteenth 12th Birthday
King and were walking along (together) just fine, when King suddenly decided to bound about from me!
I stopped in horror!
KING! I wanted to yell, but I didn’t dare. We were in Coyote country!!!
I dropped down and started crawling…geez…how am I going to stay safe!
I gradually crept along, all the while looking for a safe place to hide until morning.
I slunk along moving between bush and shrub when suddenly
A HUGE HOWL rose right to the right of me just a few feet away.
I just about wet the ground.
Then another howl in a deeper voice!
Suddenly there were many howls!
I AM IN THE MIDDLE OF A WHOLE PACK OF COYOTES!
“Hey, Boomer!” a very loud whisper came again.
“Boom, look over here.”
I looked and saw KIT!!!
“Follow me,” Kit whispered. “I’ll get you out of here. Come on, slip over here and follow me.”
I stopped trembling and gave a huge sigh of relief.
“Thank Heavens, Kit! Lead me out of here.”
With that Kit and I dashed between brush and shrub and rocks heading toward safety.
