The Beast Steps Into The Old Man's Cabin
Drawing - Inks, Markers, Color Pencils

There is no other reason for them to meet, Neither of them socialize, as a matter of course, with anyone. When the Beast arrives at the old boy's cabin, things just don't look right, so he hangs back behind a giant first growth Elm tree and observes for a while. He patiently listens with his heightened hearing and sniffs the breezes for scents. All he hears is bird song, bugs buzzing, and the wind through the trees. Not detecting anything of concern other than the fact that the old man is not answering his hails, the Beast steps forward to investigate. He knocks on the cabin door. No answer. He opens it and crosses over the threshold looking in carefully but it is pitch dark. Just as his cat eyes almost instantly begin to adjust to the dark he is surprised to find...
