The general is helping out Rainsford get something to eat.
"It is a very great pleasure and honor to welcome Mr. Sanger Rainsford, the celebrated hunter, to my home."
"I'm Sanger Rainsford of New York, I fell off a yacht. I am hungry."
The general was messing around with Rainsford, when the general left, Rainsford started to understand how a animal felt when being hunted.
Rainsford used the quicksand area to his advantage to make a trap. It worked but it got one of dogs instead of The general.
"You've done well, Rainsford, Your Burmese tiger pit has claimed one of my best dogs.
Rainsford was running for his life, The general had brought his whole pack chasing after for him.
Rainsford ran with all his might, in the distance he could see blue, it was the ocean. Rainsford was hesitant about jumping 20 feet down into the ocean. Another second later he decided to jump and hope to survive.
"I am still a beast at bay, Get ready, General Zaroff."
He had never slept in a better bed, Rainsford decided.
"Splendid! One of us is to furnish a repast for the hounds. The other will sleep in this very excellent bed. On guard, Rainsford."
