From "Survival Instinct" by Declan Conner

Survival Instinct (The dark side of dating)
Jamie takes a stroll in the woods to gather his thoughts...

Finding a small cropping of rocks Jamie sat down to take in the beauty of it all. Fascinated, he watched a colony of worker ants scurrying about. At first, they seemed to have no purpose, but as he trained his eyes on them, he saw they were working with a sense of purpose foraging for food. He thought it incredible that they could carry sections of leaves that were almost twice their size. He spotted one ant that seemed to have bitten off more than it could carry. To his surprise, a fellow ant came to its rescue, helping him out and he was transfixed at the incident. Looks a bit like me and Bill.

       His concentration was broken when he thought he heard a twig snap behind him and he spun around, but there was nothing odd to be seen. Bears? He decided to return to the beach when he heard the sound again.

      “Who’s there?” he called out, but there was no answer. Must be an animal. He strained his eyes in all directions, but failed to see anything and was about to set off, when he was sure he saw someone dart between two trees.
