The Legend of Archibal

Other audacious hunters proceeded to taking center stage and introducing themselves and their skills. One was a tall, robust man with blond flowing hair and a protruding chest. He had come far and wide in search of the biggest game and when he heard of the towns’ trouble he had decided to help them eliminate the problem. Another man had been a hunter all his life. He came from a long generation of hunters. He will take it upon himself to rid the town of this menacing creature and bring peace to all. Many colorful characters approached each with a reason to be part of the hunt, each with a story that many found inspiring and amusing. Walter was impressed at the many volunteers who were willing to nab this wayward wolf. He could tell Alden was more than eager to be part of it; it was exciting. The night ended with more drinks being poured and songs being sang. Everyone was cheering and the atmosphere became contagious. Among the merry men was Alden’s father who joined in the hullabaloo, some had begun singing a popular song among huntsman.
