There where a group of people travelling on a boat. They saw an island where most sailors are terrified of. Rainsford was on the ship but fell into the dark sea. He swam toward the island, where he heard gun shots and weird sounds.
Rainsford came across a house that was tall and dark. A huge tall man opened the door. The man was a general and out fro behind him another man appeared. He knew who Rainsford was and invited him into the building, the two gentlemen ate and discussed hunting.
The General tells Rainsford that he has three days to survive in the wild. He started to hear soudns off in the distance.
The two men are on a cliff and Rainsford falls and some how survived. He swam back to shore and waited in the house.
The men dueled until one of them would be dead. Minutes later the General was dead.
Rainsford said "He had never slept in a better bed, Rainsford decided"
