Flash Fiction Challenge: The Long Sleep

The herd had moved on and left the old bull buffalo behind. He had seen many seasons and fought many battles.

He was tired. The cold made his bones ache. His breath came raw and hard. The food had been scarce and he was weak from hunger long before the killing snow came.

From the edge of the woods, he could hear the familiar footfall of a predator. He turned his head, only half-caring. He would not fight again. It was time for the long sleep.

In the distance stood an old wolf, left behind by her pack. She was limping badly and near her end as well.
