Gone Fishing !!!

Hail: Dad, I thought you said we'd toast some gnomes!

Zhulu: Well, unfortunately, we haven't seen any gnomes on this trip. Besides, this Slitherskin Mackerel looks pretty tasty don't you think?

Tallon: It's all slimy, I'm not touching it!

Inspire: It's really healthy for you dear. However, I'm not sure your bat will care for it. Perhaps, we can look for some mushrooms tomorrow.

* crack *

Hail: What was that Dad?

Zhulu: Nothing, just an animal. I'm sure.

* Crack *

Tallon: I'm scared!

Zhulu: We're perfectly safe. We're in Tirisfal Glades for god's sake!

* CRACK! *

Inspire: The children are getting scared. Honey, maybe you should go check it out like a good strong warrior and let us know what it is?

* wump *

Zhulu: Uh...... But, I need to tend these broiling fish!

Inspire: It only takes cooking skill level one. I think I can manage just fine. Now, go see what it is!

With a look of chagrin and perhaps fright? No, perhaps he's just a little anxious about missing out on one of the fish. In any event, he collects his shield and axe and starts away from the warm cozy fire. His wife and kids offer him a proud but fearful look just before he vanishes into the foliage. Everything is quiet for a few minutes and then....

* crack, Wump, THUMP! AiYeeeeh! *

The scream rips through the dark night and then everything is deathly still!

Hail: Should we go after him, Mom?

Inspire: Absolutely not! Your father would not appreciate us attempting to steal aggro and besides... Now, we should have enough fish for all of us!
