Connor gathered more wood as twilight crept across the Triassic landscape. He had made the mistake of letting the fire go out once; he had no intention of doing it again.

The soldier’s body was attracting predators, but Connor wasn’t willing to abandon Corporal Jones to the scavengers. It was Jones who had shown him how to build the fire in the first place.

As darkness fell Connor poked the embers, watching the treeline warily. The predators were getting bolder every night. Connor didn’t want to think about what would happen when they were no longer afraid of his fire.
