The day I earnt my small intestine!

Extracts from this document...

Introduction

The day I earnt my small intestine! It had always been my ambition to join the hunt and ever since I took my first steps I had played Indians with my friends. But never, not in my wildest imaginings had I dreamt that I, Yellow Eagle of the Teton tribe would grow to be a warrior. The sun was finally upon us on the day of my first hunt. It had been a long night, spent painting arrows and sharpening Lances .My stomach was a flutter and my mind was a buzz. I did not know it but this was to be the day I had been anticipating all my childhood. I kissed goodbye to my wife then hesitated before joining the hunters, this could be the last time I saw my wife, so many warriors had been killed on the hunt, the bison were known for being strong, heavy and having powerful horns. ...read more.

I thrashed my horse into a pounding gallop and joined the end of a column. The two columns gradually closed in on the herd and we were upon them in an instant. From here on it was every man for himself. Shrieks of charging and yells of pain drowned my ears. Clouds of dust bellowed into the air making it impossible to see and I sat perplexed on my horse in the mitts of all the uproar and confusion. And then I saw it, a confused and terrified buffalo that had strayed from the herd. ...read more.

Conclusion

I knew now that my reward waited, I immediately devoured the bison's intestine and enjoyed every minute of it. The ritual I had once dreamt of was now a reality. When the last of the bison lay dead on the battlefield my wife hurried to assist me in dressing the bison. She knew which was mine from the markings on my arrows. The hides and meat were piled upon the packhorses and all the warriors soon began to leave the ground. I took a final look at the plain, now scattered with the hearts of many before leaving to reap the glories of my first triumph back in my tepee. Little did I know that this day would mark the beginning of a fabulous career, and little did I know that this would mark the beginning of a fabulous new love life! ...read more.
