3. In the Woods
In ten minutes, we arrive in the same part of the woods I was in earlier. Legolas goes off to find a place nearby to tie up Amadeus while I set up a trap. Within five minutes, I am done and go fill up my canteen. I come back to find Legolas sitting on the "Okay. Amadeus is all tied up. What did I miss?" Legolas asked. "Well I just finished setting up a trap for dinner." I said. "I'm eager to see how well this works." Legolas said. "Haha well you won't be disappointed." I said. Suddenly I heard rustling in the bushes. "Quick! behind that rock!" I shouted in a low voice. Legolas and I ran behind a rock and crouched down behind it.
I looked behind and saw a deer approaching. It looked like the perfect dinner. "C'mon. Just a little further!" I said to myself. The deer stepped into my trap and up it went. "Yes!!" I shouted. "Nice job!" Legolas said. I smiled at him as I took out my knife. I aimed for the heart and threw. Perfect hit! The deer died instantly. I ran up to the hanging net and pulled out my knife and began to saw at the strands. Within ten seconds the deer's body fell out. "Aww yuck." I said. I had deer blood all over my hands. "Help me pull it over closer to our site." I told Legolas. Legolas grabbed the deer's hind legs as I grabbed its front legs and we carried it over. "I'll make the fire." He said as he put some dry rocks together and got a stick and started working on the fire.
Within about a minute it started up. I got a bigger stick and started working on skinning the deer. We broke of as much meat as we could and strapped it over the fire. With the help of Legolas, we got everything set up in about 20 minutes. We sat together while the deer cooked. "Legolas, there's something I want to tell you." I said. Legolas looked over at me. "What is it?" He asked. "Well I just wanted to say thank you. If you hadn't have found me earlier. I would have been either still seeking shelter by now or I would have been dead." I said. "Well, you are more than welcome." He replies with a smile.
