It bore an uncanny resemblance to a man. Where it differed sent shivers of fear down my spine. After a moment, I felt the breeze dance across the prickles on my neck. Suddenly, the thing turned its bestial visage towards my concealment. The large nostrils that occupied the majority of its blunt snout flared and its eyes widened. Its salivating jaw began working as it stalked towards me.
