Finish the story begins with: “I watched the vulture looking at me hungrily as I lay on the ground bleeding and injured.”

THE VULTURE

I watched the vulture looking at me hungrily as I lay on the ground bleeding and injured.

I moved my hands to support my body in hopes of pulling myself up from the ground. I failed miserably and my blood came oozing out at a rapid pace , soaking my body and the ground.

The vulture shifted from one foot to the other while staring down at me.  He flapped his wings ever so slightly, and his feathers rose up.

I thought I heard sounds coming from him resembling those of someone in pain, but unlike myself, his was due to concern of obtaining a meal!  My concerns were out of desperation and despair!

I screamed as loud as I could get my vocal cords to co-operate.

He lifted himself off his perch and flew down toward me.

I fainted and when I came to, I was lying on a stretcher, and the vulture was lying on the ground.

I looked up at a man holding a gun and I gave him a smile of thanks and approval.
