It was time. The hunt had begun. Tonight's target, was the big moose. We went over the plan again. Lucia, myself and Dawn were the stalkers. We had to stalk the target until they were at the most vulnerable location, then we had to howl a three-wolf song to signal the ambushers. They were Hark and Bruse. They were supposed to lead the attack, and tire out the target. That's where Lio and Chen come in. They're the attackers. Once the ambushers sent the target running, the attackers would cut into their path wile they were weak, then take 'em down with a quick tackle or two. Ural, the finisher, would come on to the scene, then strike down the target with some devastating blows. Then he'd start breaking through the carcass so we can all extract the food.
Dawn started howling. She was signalling the target was in sight. The moose couldn't hear the howling from where it was, so we still had surprise on our side. The moose had approached a cliff-wall. Perfect opportunity. Myself and Lucia joined in, and we saw Hark and Bruse walking in slowly. They steadily sped up, and soon they were sprinting for the moose. The moose had nowhere to run, because Lucia had one side, and Dawn and I had the other. The cliff-wall covered the third escape route, and Hark and Bruse had the fourth path blocked. The moose was even looking for something, so this seemed like an easy meal.
Hark and Bruse sent the moose into a panic when it saw them coming, and it started running in circles. Hark took the left-wing, Bruse the right-wing. The moose had stupidly tired itself out by panicking. Lio and Chen cut through the opening Hark and Bruse made, and tackled the moose. It cried out, and Hark called for the others to join in on the beating. By others, they specifically meant Hark and Bruse. The two of them approached, then started beating down on the moose. Then there was a loud hmph.
Ural. His presence was strong. The four beating on the moose stepped aside, and allowed Ural to finish the deal. He cut through the skin, and struck the moose dead. We had our dinner, so we took our share.
Mission accomplished. That was all there was left to say. It was a good night for the wolf pack.
