It was once accumulating for the spring. finally he observed it, now not twenty ft away—the lengthy, lithe, muscular physique and tawny head of an important black-maned lion. The beast used to be upon its stomach, relocating ahead very slowly. As its eyes met Clayton’s it stopped, and intentionally, carefully amassed its hind quarters underneath it. In pain the guy watched; worried to release his spear; powerless to fly. He heard a noise within the tree above him. a few new chance, he proposal, yet he dared now not take his eyes from the yellow-green orbs sooner than him. there has been a pointy twang as of a damaged banjo-string, and on the comparable quick an arrow seemed within the yellow cover of the crouching lion.
