Circle The Boar

You decide circling is the best plan of attack. You gesture for Joe and Zoe to be quiet. You walk slowly around the boar trying to decide how to attack it.
“The throat.” Joe whispers in your ear.
You nod feeling the surge of excitement as you start towards it. Unfortunately you weren’t watching your step. You step into a bear trap and it snaps shut breaking your leg.
You scream in agony and fall to the ground the machete slipping from your hand. The boar swings around and sees your friends but not you. It charges toward them and they run away screaming.
You hear their fading screams as the boar catches up to them, and its over.
As you lie there and bleed to death you realize this is all your fault.
You ended everyone’s life just because you wanted to be manly.
