We’ll be home soon

© 2015, Barbara W. Beacham

They followed the buffaloes and their babies along the trail heading into the woods.

If they didn’t react soon, they would disappear and they would never be able to catch up again. It had already been too long since they had left camp in search for meat and fur. The women and children were counting on them. The elders would surely expel them. They would be forced to spend the remainder of their days on the outskirts as failures. The village had to survive. Their people had made it through the previous year’s extreme blizzards and numbing cold. He would not let them succumb now because they couldn’t kill one buffalo.

He picked up his spear and woke the men. It was time to go home.
