Henry Is Alone


Henry continued alone. He put two straps from the sled over his shoulders and helped the last two dogs pull the sled. When night came Henry stopped and built a fire. He had a lot of firewood.The dogs stayed close to him when they slept because they, too, were afraid of the forest now.
"I understand you. Stay close to me. Fort McGurry is still far away but we'll try to get there together."
Henry did not sleep much.The last two dogs growled whenever the wolves moved closer and kept him awake. Henry could see the wolves' red eyes in the darkness. When they got too close, Henry had to do something. He picked up a burning piece of wood from the fire and threw it at them.
"Take that! I'll burn you if you get any closer!" In the morning, Henry saw that there was no firewood on the sled.
"My God, those wolves stole the firewood! They know how to kill a man! I didn't think they were so clever!"
Henry knew he did not have much time before the wolves attacked him. He decided to leave Lord Alfred's coffin in a tree and come back for it later.
The journey was much faster now that the sled was empty. They went into another forest, and Henry stopped to cut some wood and build a fire for the night. But the wolves were hungry again. Henry threw burning wood at them to keep them away. The wolves went away but came back immediately.This happened a lew limes until Henry got very tired.
I le went to sleep and did not hear the dogs growl anymore. When he woke up the she-wolf had her teeth around his arm.
The other wolves were ready to attack him when he jumped into the fire and started kicking and throwing the burning wood all around him. It worked.The wolves ran away.When Henry looked for the dogs, he could not find them anywhere.
The next morning, Henry saw the hungry wolves moving around him again.They knew that he was now completely alone.
"You think you've got me, uh? You'll see!"
Henry knew that fire was his only weapon. He carried a burning piece of wood with him wherever he went. When night came, he built a circle of fire around him and sat in the middle.The wolves sat outside this ring of fire - waiting. Henry could see the she-wolf looking at him. He saw her white fangs. She looked like she was laughing at him. She looked up at the moon and gave a great In wl.Then the other wolves howled.
In the end, Henry was too tired to even feel afraid.
"That's it! You win! I'm going to sleep. Do what you want. I don't care any more."
I le woke up in the morning, and something was wrong. The In. was out, but the wolves were not there. Was he dreaming? He heard dogs barking, and then he saw three men on sleds. They stopped next to him.
"Are you one of Lord Alfred's men?"
'Yes. Am I glad to see you!"
"Where is Lord Alfred?"
He's in a tree. Dead. In a box."
