Night was falling. Fred had just decided to continue on his way when he
heard howling in the
distance. He knew that the wave of dark phenomena that swept across the
land was driving the animals mad, and the gray wolves of this region were
dangerous even under the best of circumstances. He quickened his pace, not
wanting to either kill the noble beasts or be killed by them.
But out of the darkness they lunged at him, a score of grays, jaws snapping and claws slashing fiercely. Fred dispatched one with a flash of his sword, and wheeled about to face another - and it sank its fangs into his shoulder, blood spurting. Fred screamed in pain, and grabbed the beast by the throat with his left arm, while hacking another to death as it threw itself at him. The second wolf was still gnashing its teeth about in his shoulder, and suddenly Fred felt dizzy. The ground was soon rushing toward his face, and then there was nothing but darkness.
