Rainsford was talking with his friends on their boat till a loud noise came from the island. They didnt really react at first and just continued doing what they doing. Then it happened again and Rainsford went to the edge of the boat and fell over the edge.
after being thrown off the ship he tried yelling for help to no reveal. He close to drowning many times, but he took off his jacket and shirt and swam to the shore. He saw something on the ground but didnt know what it was due to it being so dark you couldn't even see that far away. He continued through looking for safety.
After walking through the woods/jungle rainsford saw something in far in the distance and decided to investigate what it was. At first he didn't real know it was till he got at a pretty close distance to the house/castle. After knocking he heard someone walking around in the background. Then a man opened the door and rainsford noticed that he didn't move or acted like he understood what rainsford was saying. After a while another man walked behind him and introduced himself as Zaroff
After talking for a while and getting dinner and such things like sleep. Zaroff ashed rainsford if he wanted to Hunt with him.... He asked what will they hunting and zaroff responded with "a New Animal", at first rainsford was really confused because he didnt really see anything that a new animal would live.Then Rainsford found out that he hunted people, Zaroff acted like it was no big deal, since he gave them time to train, eat, sleep, etc. So then after rainsford said no, to hunt other humans is wrong. So Zaroff got mad and decided to hunt Rainsford for sport.
After fighting throughout the 3 days, it was a tough long battle, even though Zaroff won the battle he lost the war. He lost some of his dogs, and even Ivan died when Rainsford put up a trap for Zaroff. After almost dying multiple times Rainsford decided in a split second to jump into the ocean to survive, and he swam back to Zaroff's home for the final battle. Unknown to Zaroff, Rainsford survived and he swam back and hid behind a curtain. When Zaroff came home he noticed Rainsford and they fought against each other for survival. At the end Rainsford managed to finish the job and killed Zaroff. Then Rainsford decided to sleep in Zaroff's bed.
The resolution of the story is don't kidnap people and have them be prey for your game. Treat people how you want to be treated.
