A bright light came on again in the woods and stayed on for a couple of minutes. We stood huddled together for several minutes in silence until we heard thumping and dragging sounds that made my teeth hurt. Loud human grunts accompanied the dragging sounds. I saw a humpbacked silhouette approaching the truck slowly through the headlight beams.
Thump…grunt…drag…thump…grunt…drag…a gruesome halting dance.
