Story #6 – Slumber Bumm and the Red Wolf’s Toast – p.8

The red wolf wasted no time waiting for the ringmaster to react, and leapt through the open cage door. He raced between the tents and trailers, his ears flat against his head, and never dared to slow his pace or look back.

He cleared the circus dwellings and found that they had camped on the outskirts of a booming pioneer town. They were far enough away that they could not be heard, and the red wolf doubted that he could be seen. He ran past the road that led into the town square and turned east. Ahead in the moonlight, the red wolf could see a big mill on the banks of a wide river. On the opposite shore there was a dark line of trees, a forest that stretched out for miles in every direction.

Behind him, he heard shouts and noise as the circus folks who were alerted to his escape began to pursue him. The deep, commanding voice of Clive Smythe rang out over all, and the red wolf growled. He would never let them put him back in a cage. He had to cross that river.
