Whitney and Rainsford were both on a Yacht one evening, they were having a conversation just like anyone else would. It started to get late so Whitney went to bed. Rainsford wanted to stay up and smoke a cigarette. Suddenly, Rainsford heard a gun shot, he got scared and ran to the side of the ship, he leaned over the side, but just a little to much..
Rainsford fell overboard into the water, he screamed for help, but the ship kept on moving, no one heard him, and the ship lights got dimmer and dimmer. He would have to swim to shore so that's what he did. He swam for a long time until eventually he saw an island, once again he heard a gunshot, form a pistol, then the cry of an animal.
He pulled himself onto shore and was very tired, he fell asleep on the sand. By the time he had woken up, it was already evening time the next day. He decided to search for the person who had fired the gun, he found footsteps and followed them, eventually he came upon a huge building. It was already turning dark, so he was seeking shelter.
He went to the door and told General Zaroff that he had fell off of a ship and that he was hungry, he invited him in, they at down and learned a few things about each other. General Zaroff told Mr. Rainsford about how much he loved to hunt, he hunted in tons of countries, and hunted a lot of different animals too, but then he also told him about killing other people, the Mr. Rainsford felt uncomfortable and wanted to leave, he was told that he would have to play a dangerous game for three nights out in the wilderness until the third day on midnight, then he could go home. But only if General Zaroff couldn't find Mr, Rainsford.
Mr. Rainsford set out into the wilderness and decided to set up a trap so that he could escape while general Zaroff was in the trap. I was going to try to capture him, but couldn't. Then he tried to get him stuck in quick sand, though h never got trapped, he still made it to the three day mark and won the game.
Since Rainsford had won, General Zaroff and him went back to the home and Zaroff told Rainsford at the table that he would get to go home the next day. So he went back up to his room and put on his pajamas, then went to sleep.
