I’ve been watching it most of the night. That arm is growing fast and every now and then the creature makes a faint mewling sound. I say faint, but in here it sounds really, really loud. Its eyes occasionally flicker, too, like it’s trying to wake.
Sun’s rising now. Can’t help wondering if there are more of these things out there. There must be. That forest is huge, and that’s only the part I saw from the hill.
What happens if they discover where their friend is? Will they try and rescue it? I hope not. I don’t want to shoot any more.
