Off to the beach!
"I'll take your word for it!" you say, beginning to walk downriver.
"Good luck!" the female grey says, "If you start a pack I might come over and join you!"
You begin to follow the river's flow. On your way, you satisfy your hunger by catching and eating a lizard. It tastes stale. You feel a little awkward killing it, but it seems oddly natural.
It takes you a bit of a while, but you follow the river until you reach a beach. It looks pretty pleasant, except for the ominous shadow cast by a cliff nearby. You realize that the cliff is an extension of the mountains.
By this point, clouds have gathered in the sky, and it is beginning to rain. You notice a small overhang over the beach. It's the perfect place to take shelter! You sit down underneath the overhang.
By the time the rain stops, it is dusk. You are beginning to feel tired. You curl up and nod off quickly.
Suddenly, you awake with the sound of a cracking noise. You look around, alert. It is morning. More cracking noises follow. You ready yourself for whatever it might be as it begins to come off the bank above you and walk onto the beach.
