Jenny has heard stories about a ferocious boar-a wild pig-That roams the woods near her home.Will she be the first person to come face to face with the dreaded creature?
Everyone in Glen new the boar was out there somewhere beyond the splintery rail.Jenny would look out into the forest and whisper "boar out there"
One summer day she went to find the boar.She could sense thick breathing from the trees. Finally,leaning against a tree,she heard him for the first time.
He came through the trees so fast,she had no time to run.His large body shivered over beyond the shadows but astonishingly, he was silent. She matched his silence, She had tears spilling and flooding her face and her heart was pounding like crazy
The boar snorted and jerked.But jenny didn't move.High in the trees a bluejay yelled,and,suddenly it was over.Jenny stood there stunned while the boar flung his head and ran
And now, since that summer, Jenny still whispers,"boar out There" but instead of fearing it ,she is sorry for the torn ears and sorry that he has no golden horn.
But mostly she is sorry that he lives in fear of bluejays and little girls, when everyone in Glen Morgan lives in fear of him.
