Rising Action #3
The general talks about how much he adored Rainsford as he was a famous hunter who has wrote many books. But soon figures out that the general has a strong passion for hunting, and he finally started hunting humans...
The general processes to tell Rainsford that he is starting to get board from hunting humans. The general says they get too predictable. The general makes a deal to hunt Rainsford if Rainsford lives for 3 whole days he may leave the island.
Rainsford proceeded to make a trail to try and throw off the general and his hounds so that he couldn't be tracked. Then, Rainsford hid in a very high tree to stay away from the dogs.
Again, keeping the general off of his tracks Rainsford came up with a new plan. He was going to jump off a cliff and into the ocean to circle back into the island. This throws the general off of his trail even more.
Finally, when Rainsford swims back through the island he finds the general and kills him. The night Rainsford said he has the best sleep in the generals' bed.
