Ergo wiped his greasy lips and chin with the back of his hand. A haunch of venison was burning on the spit, but Ergo’s stomach was practically bursting from eating too much.

At the mouth of the cave, a young wolf pup was whimpering. The smell was so enticing. He hadn’t eaten in three days. He crawled on his empty belly closer to the smell.

The whimpering attracted Ergo’s attention. Feeling too full to move, he took the chunk of meat he couldn’t finish and hurled it at the pup to scare it away.
