Rainsford falls o the boat and swims to shore he hears the gunshot and walks towards it."The muttering and growling of the sea breaking on a rocky shore. He was almost on the rocks before he saw them; on a night less calm he would have been shattered against them."
Rainsford finds blood and foot prints in the jungle. He follows them hoping they lead to people."Some wounded thing — by the evidence, a large animal — had thrashed about in the underbrush; the jungle weeds were crushed down and the moss was lacerated;13 one patch of weeds was stained crimson."
Rainsford comes into the house and meets the general and Ivan."The revolver pointing as rigidly as if the giant were a statue. He gave no sign that he understood Rainsford’s words, or that he had even heard them."
Rainsford finds out that the general hunnts people. He thinks he is crazy and is told that he will be hunted.Thank you, I’m a hunter, not a murderer.”
Rainsford sets a trap for the general and it partially works. "the dead tree, delicately adjusted to rest on the cut living one, crashed down and struck the general a glancing blow on the shoulder as it fell"
Right when the general is about to sleep that night rainsford appears in his room and finishes him."One of us is to furnish a repast for the hounds.The other will sleep in this very excellent bed. On guard, Rainsford.”
