Will the wolf

The Borneo Post - Good English - - News -

Will was fed up. All he wanted was to do things his way. Why did all the wolves have to do ev­ery­thing to­gether any­way? They ate to­gether, played to­gether, slept to­gether, and walked to­gether. Ev­ery­where. Ev­ery­day. It was ex­haust­ing.

Will was grow­ing up. He could do things him­self now, and he had some pretty good ideas, too! But his mom wouldn’t let him try his ideas by him­self. Will didn’t get it.

One day, the pack was walk­ing through the woods. Will had an idea that there was food down a path, but the pack didn’t want to go that way.

Fi­nally, Will said, “Why do we need a pack any way? I’m go­ing to go down that path and I’ll have plenty to eat! I don’t need you guys!”

The pack did not ap­prove. They said, “Will, you can try go­ing off on your own, but we need to work to­gether in our pack. Packs help us sur­vive.”

Will didn’t be­lieve them. He ran off on his own. He ran for miles. He started to get tired, and it was get­ting dark. Usu­ally, the pack would all find a spot to­gether to sleep, but Will had no pack now. He de­cided to find a cave.

When he set­tled down to sleep, Will thought, “Sleep­ing would be much eas­ier with my pack all around me. If some­thing comes, I’d have them to pro­tect me.”

He barely slept that night. In the morn­ing, he de­cided to go back. Will hoped he could find his pack again. He ran back to where they’d last been to­gether. As he was run­ning, he smelled a deer. “Hm­mmm...” Will thought.

“The pack would be im­pressed if I brought a deer for us all.” So he de­cided to hunt on his own.

Qui­etly, he crept through the woods. He tracked the deer into a clear­ing.

Will looked around. Where was the deer? Sud­denly, some­thing charged out of the trees at him! It was the deer, and those antlers were sharp!!! If his pack were here, they would help him, but Will was alone. He ran from the deer as fast as he could! Af­ter a while, the deer stopped chas­ing him.

Will rested. He started think­ing how much eas­ier this trip would have been with his pack by his side. He would have been able to sleep soundly. He

would have been warmer with them all around him. He would have been able to take down the deer with his pack by his side. Now, Will was just hun­gry and lonely. He re­alised his pack had been right, packs do help them sur­vive. Will knew that now, and was de­ter­mined to find his pack and work hard to help them as much as they help him.
