Big Bear -chap.5-CHAPTER 5When Taz awoke, he felt stiff and cramped from being in such a small space. The morning air felt chilly and moist. Spring was not yet here, Taz could hardly wait for the warm weather.Taz got up and squeezed out of the entrance of the den. He caught a faint smell off to the right of him and he lumbered sleepily through the grass until he came across his breakfast.It had been nearly a week since Taz had arrived in Grizzly Territory, and every morning, Taz was left a small meal in the same exact spot. He wasn't to happy about being fed like this, but at least he was safe for now until he was fully recuperated. In the evening, Tanner would come down by the river with a small meal, and they would wrestle or talk until the sun was surrounded by a pink-gold sky and a faint moon appeared.Taz ate his 4-bite rabbit slowly, so he could enjoy its taste, but he hated how hard it had become while Taz slept. Taz contemplated to himself that he would learn how to catch his own meal, and m
Big Bear -chap.4-CHAPTER 4Taz coughed up the last of the water that was in his lungs. His throat felt sore after all of that hacking, and he was yet again, soaking wet.Taz remembered the cub and quickly sprang up; ready to defend himself if he was going to attack. But what he found instead was the cub sitting there with a look of worry on his face."What??" asked Taz, apparently puzzled by the cubs change in attitude."Are you alright?" asked the grizzly."I'm fine!" snapped Taz"Oh! Haha, I should have thought," said the cub. He smiled brightly."Ummm" Taz shuffled his paws, aware that his thanks were to be said in return for saving his life. But he just couldn't."Ummm?" prompted the cub"Well…" Taz swallowed his pride and spit it out…. "Ummm…thanks for saving me…" said Taz. He felt ashamed of himself. How could he have been beaten by this other cub. Sure, he was a cub too, but he was somewhat more muscular than him."How did you learn to fight like that?" they both said."What?" they said together
BIg Bear -chap. 3-CHAPTER 3Taz heard an annoying sound nearby. He turned over in his sleep and decided to just ignore it.*Poke*Something had poked him in the side.Taz brushed it away.Suddenly he felt something blowing in his ear!He sprang up and looked around wildly for whatever had disturbed his sleep; he saw nothing.He was about to go back to sleep when he noticed a small brown furry head peaking out from a trunk of a tree.It stepped out. Taz realized it was a Grizzly bear cub!He stood up, he felt the fur on his neck begin to prickle, and he began to snarl."Who are you?!" he said angrily."Who am I? Who are you is the question!" he replied."What?""Your on my territory! Now get out!""Make me!" cried Taz, and with that, he lunged for the cub, aiming for the arm, so to pin him down.The little cub skirted out of the way just in time and turned around and bopped Taz playfully on the head."Not bad, but not fast enough!!"And he jumped towards Taz and grabbed for his arm.Taz saw that move com
Big Bear -chap.2-CHAPTER 2Taz remained in the tree until the next morning.He cried mostly, and sometimes cried himself to sleep.His mother was dead. He had seen it.Taz eventually grew hungry and climbed down slowly. He looked around at his surroundings.He had no idea where he was! More tears came to Taz's face as he stumbled aimlessly through the woods searching for buried nuts as his mother had once done.…He only found 3 nuts.He must have wandered at least 5 miles, and around noon, he came to a river. He immediately thought of fish! He ran downstream to find a good spot to fish, and a little ways down river he spotted a thick log protruding out into the river.Taz rushed over and stepped on. It felt mostly dry, but the moss that grew on it got slick the further out he went.A small splash caught his attention, and with out hesitation, he scrambles onto the log. Out here he was able to see that the river was moving faster and he could see a couple of rocks here and there."I better be careful!"
