The Two Fellows and a Bear
By Brenda B. Covert
  

1     Two young fellows, students at a local college, decided to drive up to the mountains one weekend. There were several hiking trails they could take through the woods. What a great way to get away from the stress of homework!
 
2     Eddie, the taller of the pair, teased his short friend, Rick, about the wild animals they might see.
 
3     "You never know what might jump out at you," Eddie said with a grin.
 
4     "That's not funny," Rick replied nervously. "You're the faster runner! I'd be a goner."
 
5     Eddie slapped Rick on the back. "We're buddies! I wouldn't run off and leave you to face a wild animal on your own. I'd stand there with you and stare that bad boy down!"
 
6     It was a pleasant hike. A slight breeze rustled through the foliage. Birds twittered high in the trees. Dry leaves and acorns made crunching sounds underfoot.
 
7     Rick had just started to tell Eddie about a smart girl in his speech class when he heard something begin thrashing its way through the bushes and trees. He stared wide-eyed at Eddie.
 
8     Both fellows turned to face the direction of the noise. A large black bear rushed out of the woods and onto the trail!
