Prologue

One Big Family

The adult tyrannosaurs stood proudly over their small infant of only two weeks age. They were very fortunate to even have him. Months before they started out with four eggs, but one had been lost at the claws of a clever thief and the other two simply did not hatch. Their little one was happily trudging about the inside the giant nest of mud and brush. Snarling and biting at the flies that buzzed in swarms about him.
Their infants present food supply and parasaurolophus was growing rather rotten at the moment. They had dragged it a few yards away from the nest and the flies swarmed in by the millions to it. It was time for them to hunt for food for themselves on the young one. The female walked over to carcass and sniffed the animal looking for a descent bit meat and then ripped free a bony piece of meat from the animals hide. She swung back over the nest and dropped it in front of the infant, gruffly purred and then walked off. The male took stride behind her and looked back at the baby. He snorted his approval and turned back towards his mate. The infant watching as they vanished deep in the jungle around them.

The tyrannosaurs walked one behind the other through the jungle, the female leading. She was the better hunter of the two. They would spend maybe a couple hours at most away from their nest. Thus they constantly left heavy scent markers around a large area surrounding the nest that would surly make any other animal move off in fear of encountering on of them.

The tyrannosaurs trekked for a number of miles till they came to the river than ran through much of the islands center. The river more often than not was the best chance at locating a large herd of animals. As was hoped in a large grassy field on the opposite bank they slowly approached a herd of 20 fast runners, the gallimimus, an ostrich like animal. They were rather small to overall stomach of the tyrannosaurs but would be more than adequate for their infant to chew on. Under the concealment of the foliage they spent several minutes simply watching the animals as they drank from the river or simply stood as lookouts. They were studying the herd one animal at a time. Looking for the best targets, the younger less weary, the slower old ones, or the injured.

Finally they each found separate targets to chase down. With a mad rush they burst from hiding and thrashed through the water after the fleeing herd of gallies.


Kidnapped

It was around an hour after the infants parents had left that the baby rex saw two strange bipedal animals approaching the nest watching him. The infant unaware of the dangers these creatures posed continued to naw upon the remains of his meal barely watching them. The bipedal animals sat crouched for a few minutes conversing to each other. The infant continued to disregard their presence.

The infant felt something sting him in his hind leg. He jumped yelping and then turned to bite at whatever had bit him. He pulled a small, hard, cold object from his leg and proceed to try and crush it in his jaws. But something was wrong. He felt funny, weak. His eyes began to lose focus. Then his legs began to give out from under him. He tried to force himself still but began to waver off to one side and slumped to the ground in a daze. Still vaguely aware of his surroundings he watched and the two creatures creped over the nest and came towards him. Then he blacked out.

One hour later the tyrannosaurs returned with the fresh kill of a gallimimus dangling from the mouth of the male. As they neared the nest they both noted an odd scent still faint in the air, a scent vaguely familiar to them both. The scent of man. The male dropped the prey and they rushed forward to the nest. It was empty. The scent of man still clung heavy here. The female roared, as did the male. They stuck their heads high into the air and bellowed for their infant to call to them. There was no cry from the infant. Closer examination of their nest they found that there had been little to no struggle, and that there was no blood. It could not be possible that their only infant would have wondered off. They now only had one thought running through their tiny brains. Their baby was missing and they would find and destroy whomever or whatever took him. The female bellowed again and began sniffing the air. She caught the scent trail left by the man creatures.


Injured

It was late in the day the sky was slowly turning red as the sun started to set. The infant was waking up. Looking around he found himself alone in the middle of a small clearing. Righting himself he tried to get up. He stumbled around before falling down again. He was still feeling dizzy. Then he noticed that something was holding him by his neck. It was cold and wet. The infant tugged at it with his jaws but it would not release him. He stood up again hissing and growing trying to pull himself free of his captor. It was no use he was too weak yet and he slumped to the ground panting.

The infant rested his head on the ground and closed his eyes. He listened to the sounds of the jungle around him and then heard the voices of the creatures that had taken him from his home. They were close by. He raised his head and searched for them. He scanned around foliage around him but saw nothing even though he could hear them. H looked up in the trees that surrounded him. He suddenly saw the faintest of movement but too little to track. The voices were coming from that tree though. First he hissed and growled then he let out a shrill cry for help and he cried out over and over for the next several hours.

The infant continued his wailing cries as a biped stumbled into the clearing. The infant continued the cry out as he watched it make its way awkwardly to the tree that hid his captors. The biped creature was calling to on of the others. A moment later he saw one of them jump down from the tree.

The infant became still and quiet as they approached him. The smaller of the two was carrying something with him that shined in the light. Some kind of dark fluid sloshed around in it. This one creature was behaving rather oddly moving in jerky motions and the other seemed upset by him. The one who had taken him from the nest was growing more irate by the other and briefly they yelled at one another. They both confronted each other standing face-to-face exchanging words though the smaller one had trouble keeping his balance. He pointed in the infant’s general direction and waved his hand at it mumbling things to the other creature. The one was still growing more disgusted by the other. And was waving him off as if trying to tell him to leave. But the odd one pushed at his captor unfazed.

Apparently having had enough of what ever was going on between the two, his captor waved him off and began walking away. The smaller one set down the liquid he carried and attempted to go after him now but when he tried to pivot on his heals it was too much for him and he lost his balance and began to stumble backwards. Hitting a stone with the back of his heal he fell landing on the infants right leg.

The infant yelped in pain and began howling as his captor came over and picked up the small one. He pushed him away from the infant and it stumbled away out of site. His captor turned to him, studied him for few moments, then shook his head and went back up the tree. The infant howling still looked to its leg and saw it was bleeding a little bi around the lower half of his leg. And the feeling in his leg seemed to be going away a little bit. The pain was going dissipating but only from the shock of the injury.

The infant’s cries grew more intense.


Rescued

The infant had been captive for a few hours now. The sky had grown dark and the infant, hurt, cold, and hungry continued crying for his parents. They had yet to come for him. The two men had been watching all this time still never moving from the tree. What they wanted from he did not know.

Infant became still and silent when the bellow of a triceratops was heard followed by shout from dozens of men. The infant could not see what was happening. Then a loud explosion erupted and what for a moment appeared to be a ball of fire shot high in the air and came rushing down to the tree the two men were in. The men jumped clear as the object crashed in the tree and then to the ground. The infant watched as the two men ran in the direction of the commotion.

A few minutes passed. The infant heard the chatter of the men still going on from a distance when a lone figure approached him. The infant began to cry again as the man tugged at the chain. The man pulled the spike clear of the ground and then picked the infant of in his arms and ran off with him. The infant wriggled in the mans arms as it cried. The man took the infant through the jungle and then down a small stream a ways before climbing a small embankment. Here the infant saw yet another person along side a large object. The new human opened a door and the man set the infant inside the car.

The infant thrashed some about inside the car crying still. The two people driving chattered feverishly amongst themselves. The ride in the car lasted a good 30 or more minutes. Looking out the window the infant watched at the car came to a stop in a small clearing.

The people left the car and the infant still struggling was pulled from the car. The infant now found itself in side a large strange smelling room with weird sound and light along with two more people. One of the human became distressed at the sight of the infant and the smaller one seemed agitated by him as well. The infant cried out as the man placed the infant on a cold table at the back of the room. Then man removed something from his waste and began rapping it around the infant’s mouth. Then the infant felt something prick him in his hindquarters.

With in moments nothing in the world seem to be wrong to the infant it watched as two of the people left while the other two hung over him looking at his leg. The infant groaned as they continued to mess with his leg but he could not struggle. What ever had poked him made him not want to. Eventually the people began wrapping something around his injured leg and the infant just groaned.

Even in the rain that was coming down now he tyrannosaurs finally had gotten a good scent trail of their lost infant and were rushing through the jungle as fast as they could go. The bull let out a roar of warning to all those in their way that rung through air. They plowed through the over growth knocking trees from their way. In their mad rush they never noticed the individuals in the trees above them.

The scent of their infant grew stronger with each step until they entered a clearing where they stopped a moment looking at what stood before them. In the clearing say a small vehicle along side a large box structure. The things did not move and had a strange smell. The female slowly stepped up to the smaller car. Sniffed it and then razing her head she swung back down striking the car broadside and sending rolling several times and then falling over a cliff. The male then walked up along the opposite of the larger object, while the female moved along the other. The male peered through a window on the side and saw the infant laying there and standing around it were three humans. The female saw this two and growled in anger. Neither tyrannosaur dared to doing anything though as they feared the humans may hurt their infant as a result.

They growled at the people inside the trailers. They wanted their baby. The infant saw his parents moving around outside and started groaning again. The people inside the van still clung tight to the walls for a moment before they moved and picked up the infant from the table. The female growled as she watched them carry her baby. Thy followed the infant near to the mid section of the RV and the female watched as a door swung open. The male also came around to the other side as their infant was released. The female sniffed at her infant a few times as it coed and nudge
her snout. With a nude the female pushed the infant in a direction away from the trailers. The infant moved off with a slight limp and the adults followed close behind.

A little ways into the jungle the tyrannosaurs stopped in checked on the infant again to be sure it was all right. The female purred as it watched the infant. The male looked back in the direction of the trailers now growling. The female nudged the infant into a bush were it lay curled up and quiet. Then the tyrannosaurs went back for the trailers.

With rage poring through them the rushed the rear trailer. The female truck first ramming the side with the full force of her body the male right behind her stuck the trailer with a foot and they tipped it over in its side. They both struck again pushing the rear trailer on to its roof. They roared at the trailer knowing that the human still were inside. They moved to the front trailer now and both rammed their snouts through front windshield as they began to push on the trailer with the weight of their bodies. They maneuvered the trailer as they pushed it towards the cliff.

The male roared as he rammed the trailer on last time and the other half slipped over the ledge.

The female was going to start pushing again when it turned it attention back to where they had hid the infant. She smelled something new coming this way near to were the infant lay hidden.

Only moments after returning to their baby they saw another small car through the jungle race by down the muddy path. They stayed with the infant reassuring its safety. After a couple minutes went back to the trailers they would take no chances.

Upon returning to the trailers they found the little car was trying to help pull the trailer back away from the cliff. This was not good to them and they walked right to either side of the car. Looking through the window they saw yet another man. These pests were all over the island it seemed.

The bull stepped back and then bit down on some bars on the back of the car and with little effort ripped them and the roof clear. The car kept on trying to pull the trailers as they tore away at the car doors. The man that was inside the car was crouched down along the seats and floor and trying to pull free some kind of stick. The male bent his head down jaws open the man screamed and kicked at him. The tyrannosaur clamped down on his leg and lifted him up out of the car. The tyrannosaur tossed the man into the air and spun him around clamping down this time around the mans midsection and the screams stopped. The female then went for the legs that dangled from his jaws and the man was rip in two. They chomped down the man and watched as the trailers slid over the cliff taking the remains of the car with it.

With the threat killed off they returned to their infant and then made their way back to their nest.


The Scent

The infant was safe back in the nest both adults lay sleeping around the outside of the nest. The infant lay curled in a ball in the center of the nest. They had been through a great ordeal the other day and were happy to be home together safe.

A nice cool breeze started blowing through jungle shortly after midday and a familiar scent came with it. The females jerked her had up in sudden
surprise looked at were her infant lay. She saw it moving some still
sleeping though. She sniffed the air several times then started to get to
her feet at which the male awoke. The male confused by his mate’s actions
suddenly understood her concern. Flowing through the breeze was the scent
of their infant.
How this was possible they had no idea. They only knew it was their
infants familiar scent and it was coming from miles away to the islands
interior. Yet they only had one infant and he was back safe with them. They
looked to each other then the infant and began grumbling in confusion.
There was something wrong in their tiny mind. How can their infant be right
there in front of them and yet they suddenly are picking up the scent of
their infant from mile way. An overwhelming paternal instinct began to
surface telling the tyrannosaurs to seek out the scent of their infant that
was coming from the interior. Could there some how be another?
The tyrannosaurs again studied their infant sleeping in the nest, then
the air. The urge to seek the scent out was becoming too great. There was
something not right about it they had to find out what it was. Even though
they had only just reclaimed their infant they took off in search of what
was causing the scent.
The tyrannosaurs walked at a steady uninterrupted pace. It was not
long before the trail led them close to where they had found their infant
the other night. Another scent caught their attention as well, man, and
lots of them. Had massed here and then went off into the islands interior.
The female growled between her teeth as she looked off in the direction the
men had gone. These pests were becoming a big problem in their lives. They
set off following the trail left by the men.
Then men had a long lead over them but they would follow the trail
until they were found. If these men had a baby of theirs they would take it
back with full force. They travel through the day never stopping and on
several occasions spooked up animals they would have otherwise chased down
as food. They passed carrion making compies scatter in fright. They were
not stopping until thy found the source of the scent for anything.
Night fell upon the island and the tyrannosaurs still tracked the
scent moving further inland still.
The scent of the infant as well as men was becoming stronger with each
mile.
By mid night the tyrannosaurs were upon the men’s camp and the scent
of the baby was there someplace. They began to approach the men slowly. The
male lead the way. When the bull enter the outer edge of the camp. The
female stayed back for the time being. Moving towards a little tent he
stopped briefly sniffing the air. It was coming from the tent.
The tyrannosaur moved around the tent and nudged the front of it with
his snout. It was open and gave way as he slowly stuck his snout inside
sniffing the air. The tyrannosaur saw no infant and heard no calls of one
but a small object lay strung along a wire. The scent was coming from that.
Then the tyrannosaur sniffed the strange objects on the ground before him.
There was a muffled noise for a second then it stopped. Inside of the tent
smelt of man but there was no movement. The tyrannosaur continued to sniff
around curious.
A sudden scream echoed from the camp.
The bull jerked away in surprise taking the tent with him. He swung
up sending the tent flying way as the female rushed the camp roaring. Men
were running in every direction screaming at the top of their lungs. So
many in fact that this confused the tyrannosaurs enough they did not know
who to go after first. The female roared and then chased after a group of
men that had fled down a path. The male still trying to understand why the
scent was there roared at some other men who ran off in other directions.
With them gone the male poked around the site again.
The female however was chasing after several men down a trail roaring
at the top of here lungs. The men were yelling and every time one of them
turned to her while running she would be stung some. But it did not stop
her. One of the men in the middle of the group tripped and fell in a puddle
but the tyrannosaur ignored it and simply stepped on it as she chased the
rest of them. Even when the thing stuck to her foot she did not loose her
pace. The thing peeled clear of her foot after a couple steps.
At one point sever low hanging branches got in her way slowing her
pursuit but then she just tore through the natural blockade like it was
paper. She roared as the men ran under a small waterfall. She stopped only
a couple seconds and then stuck her head through the falls. The water
splashed across her face making it to hard to see anything move. With her
had in as far as she could go she opening her mouth and stuck her tongue
out. She flapped it around trying to taste for any of the men. She snorted
went she ran the very tip of her tongue along on of them.
To her surprise something landed in her mouth and she instinctively
clamped down and pulled it clear from the falls and quickly got a better
hold by chomping down on it. She then walked off swallowing man. As she
moved into the jungle something ran off in front of her. With all the
excitement of the chasing she took off after it.

Captured
The bull rex rummaged around the remnants of the men’s camp. He knew
his mate would fine going alone after the pests. There was no infant here.
It was still safe back at the nest now; they had been smelling was
something else that was like him. He growled to himself and sniffed the
grounds. Shaking his massive bulk he leaned down to have a drink of water.
The tyrannosaur lapped up the rainwater unaware a bald man was slowly
approaching him from the left side.
The tyrannosaur continued to drink until it felt a sudden sting in its
backside. Roaring the tyrannosaur looked in the direction the stinger had
come from and saw the man stepping away. Enraged the rex began to move
towards the man. With each step the tyrannosaur picked up a little more
speed but the man did not run. Instead he slowly backed away while fumbling
with a stick of some kind.
Before the tyrannosaur reached the man he was pointing the stick at
him again and the tyrannosaur felt another ting this time in his neck. The
tyrannosaur was suddenly feeling groggy. His movement resembling that of a
drunken man trying to walk with every bit of effort the tyrannosaur could
muster it tried to keep his balance as he moved towards the man.
The tyrannosaur collapsed his massive body causing the ground the
shake as it slid forward along the ground. His snout came to rest only a
few feet from the man. The tyrannosaurs eyes glazed over. With one last
heavy exhale the world went dark.
Maybe only thirty minutes went by before the rex was awakened still
heavily sedated. The tyrannosaur was unable to move other than its eyes
even though its vision was blurred now. It was confined in large restraint
cage. It watched has dozens of men ran around him shouting. One of then men
sat down close to him but he could not move even though he wanted to.
Another man briefly confronted him and then thy both moved off. The
tyrannosaur noticed an odd sound emanating from above now. A huge blurry
object was slowly descending from above. A large flyer of some kind?
It was a helicopter. Several cables were quickly dropped from the
sides of this noisy bird. And then men began attaching them around the
restraint cages floor. After a few minutes the tyrannosaur was be air
lifted above the tree line. The tyrannosaur was sleeping again as it
reached the beach.
At the rex nest the infant was recovering from its injuries still when
several forms surrounded it shining bright beams of light at it. The baby
hissed and growled at them but they did not flee. Instead two of the men
tossed a net over the infant.
The baby howled calling for help as it was dragged away again from its
home once again.

Special Cargos

It was late in the night, the tyrannosaur slept soundly at the moment
atop the deck of the S.S. Venture, a cargo ship. Confined to the cramped
holding cage the tyrannosaur could only move his useless arms and his tail
a little, which felt sluggish from heavy dose of tranquilizer running
through him. The tyrannosaur groaned trying to open his mouth. But several
straps held it down.
Time seemed to go by slowly to the tyrannosaur. It watched with
blurred vision as men went about the boat stopping at looking at time every
once in a while. The tyrannosaur did not like this helpless feeling and was
beginning to stress.
On of the men seemed to spot the distress coming from the tyrannosaur
as it approached him. The tyrannosaur suddenly began to convulse in quick
jerky movements it groaned in pain and began to drool heavily. His eyes
started rolling to back of his head. The man ran to a supply box and pulled
out a gun, then after a moment fired a dart into the tyrannosaurs neck. A
large portion of the ships crew began to mass around the tyrannosaur now.
The tyrannosaur seemed to settle after a minute but suddenly he began
snorting and shacking his body. The straps that once held his mouth shut
suddenly began to snap from the pressure of his massive jaws opening and
then letting out a roar of rage. The rex bucked his head back again the
bars bending them with each hard hit. Suddenly the bar gave way from its
supports and was knocked away nearly hitting a number of the crew. The
tyrannosaur began to thrash about wildly bending the bars apart more and
more giving him more room to move. The crew began stepping away
The man who had shot him was running back to the box as the tarp and
more straps began to tear apart. The tyrannosaur using the force of his
hind legs began to try and push up with his back against the bars now and
roared even louder as they began to pull free. The crew was panicked
running for places to hide.
The tyrannosaur broke free of his restraints and roared at the fleeing
men. He turned his attention to the man trying desperately to load the gun.
Two steps and the tyrannosaur was on him and picked him up and tossed him
over his head out into the ocean. The tyrannosaur began chasing after the
other crew still topside. One after another his would pick a man up and
either toss them over board or slam them down onto the deck.
One man ran to one side of the steel beast and pick up something from
the ground. A large mouth began to open in thee center of the beast. The
skipper of the boat who had been hearing all the commotion finally put the
ship on autopilot and went out the side door and saw the tyrannosaur drop
the man who had opened the cargo bay doors. He watched as a small number of
remaining men simply jumped ship in shier panic. Dumbfounded the skipper
stood there staring at the dinosaur. The tyrannosaur was looking right at
him. It roared as the man ran back inside the small cabin. The tyrannosaur
ran up to the cabin just as the man was trying to radio the main land. He
roared at the man the sound ear splitting inside the cabin. The man drooped
the CB and screamed as the tyrannosaur poked his snout into the archway.
The tyrannosaur opened his mouth hot breath fogged the windows.
The tyrannosaur was just out of reach of the man and he snapped his
jaws shut and tried pushing further into the cabin. The man with his back
to the wall through a mug at the tyrannosaur but it did nothing but make
the tyrannosaur roar at him. Screaming at the top of his lungs the man
began to kick at the tyrannosaur hitting it in the nose several times
enraging the animal. The tyrannosaur kept trying to close its jaw around
the man foot with each kick and finally succeeded. The man grew wide-eyed
and screamed in pain and horror as the tyrannosaur began to pull him slowly
from the cabin. The grabbed a hold of ships steering wheel and tried
holding on by wrapping an arm around the wheel. He also began trying to
reach for the auto pilot switch to stop the boat from reaching the
mainland. With fingers only inches from the switch the man felt a sudden
hard tug and then another and was ripped from the wheel. The man briefly
saw he was dangling upside down in the air and had time to see his right
hand was missing past the wrist joint. The man suddenly was lifted in to
the air and he saw the massive jaws of the tyrannosaur rushing at him.
It was now quiet on the top of this steel beast. Looking around the
tyrannosaur saw no moment. The tyrannosaur walked around the deck stopping
by the large cargo bay doors. It looked down into the darkness. Something
clanged down in the hold. The tyrannosaur went down inside to look. Once
down at the bottom the tyrannosaur made its way to the far wall. A sudden
grinding was heard and the bay doors began to close. The tyrannosaur was
caught off guard and was trapped below deck
The tyrannosaur roared in anger.
Confined to a cage filled with hey and a muzzle over its mouth the
infant lay cowering on the floor of the cage. It was stuck inside some big
noisy thing flying over the ocean. He had been in it for several hours,
though its still dark out.
Finally the infant noticed the feeling dropping as the craft began to
slow and drop slowly though it was in a cage it could see light become
brighter by the minute. The craft made a few zero degree turns and touched
down.
Moments later a few men were pulling his cage clear of the craft. The
infant looked around as they carried him into a large structure lit by
several small floodlights. They set him down and then on of the men put a
long stick through the bars of his cage and poked him with the end of it.
The infant tried to pull it away but could not with muzzle on him. The
world seemed to grow calm quickly though and the infant lay down.

The Concrete Jungle

The tyrannosaur still confined inside the cargo hold stood in the
center waiting for something, anything to happen now, and something did.
The ship suddenly shuddered loud cracks and bangs rang through the hold.
The ship came to sudden halt and the tyrannosaur was thrown clear off his
feet towards the front of the hold. The tyrannosaur landed hard on the
floor in a daze.
The sounds of the doors trying to opening woke brought the tyrannosaur
out of his daze. Then he hear shouting coming from people. He hung close to
the giant doors waiting for them to open up. Men continued to shout and
then the doors began to rise.
The tyrannosaur burst upwards roaring and sending the doors flying
open. Several people ran for cover. The tyrannosaur walked shacking itself
off to debris covered ramp roaring at the people. As he stepped down a
couple of them jumped for the water and he snapped at them half heartedly.
He was more intent on getting away from everything. Looking for the most
obvious way away from here the tyrannosaur began walking almost casually
out of the harbor. As he approached the exit two more men fled from him. A
sign over the exit stood in his way but h simple busted it apart with a
swipe of his head. He walked over to a large pile of rock sticking out of
the water and looking out across the water he roared at the strange jungle
that stood far out before him.
He walked off not sure were to go.
After several minutes of walking mostly undisturbed save for the
occasional animal with bright lights for eyes whom would turn and fleet at
sight of him found himself wondering around numerous buildings which rather
reminded of the similar ones back on his island home. He wanted water and
was sniffing his way around the buildings. He smelled something that seemed
like it might be water and turned down a street. Walking a block he turned
and walked between two of the buildings. The tyrannosaur scratched at his
jaw as he went to the back.
There was water here all right but it smelled unlike water he had
drunk before. Walking right through a small barrier he stepped up the large
pond. It glowed funny to, light coming from down in the water. He sniffed
around a moment then tested the water with his tongue. Figuring it was safe
to drink even though it tasted odd he lapped up the water. A small goofy
looking animal tethered to a box suddenly appeared and began to bark at
him. The tyrannosaur growled at it and it whimpered and hid inside a box.
The tyrannosaur continued to drink then a desire for food set in. He went
after the little animal hiding in the box.
As he was eating the little animal there was a sudden flash of light
from the building he was standing by he roared at were the flash came from
letting the chain and box fall to the ground. Snorting the tyrannosaur
quickly turned and walked off. The tyrannosaur was still hungry the small
animal he had just eaten was not even remotely close to what he needed. He
set off in search of a large food supply.
Venturing deeper though jungle of buildings and streets the
tyrannosaur found himself looking down a long street filled with lights and
a continuous trail of the animal with lights for eyes traveling in either
direction. He had gotten a taste of one back home and they were not edible.
But the things they carried inside were. He thought about going after one
since he could tear them apart so easy when he noticed dozens of bipeds
moving about. Man, easy food. The tyrannosaur left the safety of cover and
began moving down the street.
The infant on the other hand was stuck inside a cold cage. He lay
there sedated still hardly moving when he heard something approaching him.
He did not look up to see what it was he didn’t care. Suddenly two faces
appeared before him one more familiar than the other, from back on the
island. One of them opened his cage and then began pulling him out. He
didn’t struggle, as he was too weak yet. The familiar human held on to him
once they were seated and then they drove off with him.
Running down the middle of the street the tyrannosaur roared at
anything that moved. There were some many things running around he was not
sure what to bring down. Many of the people fled for cover in buildings.
The animals with lights fore yes were panicking so much they were running
into each other and flipping.
At an intersection the tyrannosaur stopped and gnawed on a pole. He
tugged at it until he saw something very big come from around another
corner. He pulled free the piece he had in his mouth and trotted after the
large thing. Dropping the piece of tasteless metal he trotted up along side
the long white creature and roared at it. He saw several people moving
around inside. He moved closer to the front and swung his had full force
into the side of the creatures face crippling it. The animal swerved and
then kept on going until it ran into a building.
Several more people appeared on an adjacent street and the tyrannosaur
went after them. They people were such easy targets but which one to take
down. The tyrannosaur began snapping wildly into a group of people when one
of then veered of to his left. The tyrannosaur turned to go after him.
Before the man reach safety though the tyrannosaur snatched him up in his
jaws. The man screamed and wriggled in his mouth as he pulled him back. A
second quick chomp and the mans screamed began to die away. The tyrannosaur
dropped his catch and placed a foot over it to hold it down while he ate.
The tyrannosaur finished his meal and began his hunt again. As he
walked down the street scanning for food he heard something very familiar
crying out. He quickly turned growling at were the source of the sound came
from. He moved across a lot knocking over a large red object that rolled
under a canopy. As he ducked under the canopy a car began to speed away and
he hard the cry again. It was the call of his infant. The tyrannosaur
roared as he cleared the canopy and ran after the car knocking aside a
stationary car without care.
The tyrannosaur ran as fast as he could but the car managed to stay
ahead of him. He roared in anger as his infant cried for him. The car made
several turns the tyrannosaur never taking his eyes off it. Nothing was
distracting him from catching that car. The tyrannosaur pursed the car
into a place filled with giant buildings back near the waterfront were he
had originally left from.
As the rex passed by one of the buildings several more car appeared
flashing lights. He roared at them unfazed. The car fled and he continued
the chase. H saw the car holding his infant veer off and go through the
wall of one of the buildings. Running full force he ran through the same
wall just as the humans and infant vanished through a small opening in on
of the far walls.
Cut off bow from his infant the tyrannosaur took off down through the
building and ran out the large opening at the end. He ran around the
building and found himself running along a dock and up ahead was the steel
beast that had held him for some time. He heard his infants faint cries
again coming from the bowls of the beast.
The infant stretched his jaw having finally had the muzzle removed.
The two people had run off but he spotted a lone man walking down the ramp
towards him. He growled trying to be as fierce as possible but the man
still approached him. The infant growled and backed away as the man came
closer. The infant hid not like this man at all. He was the very one who
had hurt him before.
The man was so focused on the infant he did not realize the bull was
walking down the ramp. When the tyrannosaur reached the floor the infant
scampered passed the man and over to his parent. The man became distressed
backing away stumbling around boxes and then trying to run up a set of
stairs. The infant watched as his parent caught him by a leg and pulled him
from the steps. Biting down hard first the tyrannosaur then dropped the
man. The man tried to get up but he simply pushed him with his snout
knocking him back down. The tyrannosaur gave the infant a look of
encouragement and the infant jumped on the man.
Watching his infant make his first kill the tyrannosaur heard shout
from above and a loud thumping sound. He stood a moment listening as they
grew louder. Suddenly the mouth began closing again. The tyrannosaur went
up to the mouth as it was close to shutting and felt something sting him in
his neck. Roaring he backed off down the ramp again. Suddenly tired the
tyrannosaur lied down and fell asleep.
The infant suddenly grew tired himself now that everything was calming
down. He picked at his kill once more and then walked over to his sleeping
parent. Curling up next to him closing his eyes. The infant barely noticed
when the ship began to move again a short while later.

Home

The tyrannosaur awakened slowly. The world before him was a dark haze
at first. Then slowly it blinked its yellow eyes even in the dark the
tyrannosaur could see where he was. He was in the belly of the steel
swimming beast again. It vaguely recalled a creature shooting something at
it. He could still feel the thing that had stung it in its neck.
The tyrannosaur lay still on one side breathing slowly moving one tiny
eye around looking. It saw its infant curled up in some nets next to its
head. It was sleeping soundly. He saw the remains of the infant’s first
kill lying in a mess on the floor, flies buzzed around it, looking up it
could see the huge mouth of the steel beast was closed.
He yawned opening his huge mouth groaning. He rolled on to his belly;
the ship creaked under its weight. The infant woke at this movement and
watched as its giant parent lifted itself up from the floor. He growled up
to his parent. The tyrannosaur looked down at the infant as it stretched
its body and legs out and then shook its bulky body.
The tyrannosaur stood there unmoving for a moment as the infant then
got up. It watched as the infant hobbled around for a moment due to the
strange object still rapped around its right leg. Then the tyrannosaur
turned its attention back to the closed mouth. It cocked its head side to
side as if listening for something.
From the inside of the ship it suddenly heard the sounds of strange
noises it was not familiar with. Along with other noise made much like this
creature made as it swam. Then it caught the sounds of waves crashing.
A loud grinding sound echoed in the hull startling the animals and the
tyrannosaur roared in surprise as the mouth of the beast slowly opened
letting the sun shine down on them both.
When the mouth stopped moving the tyrannosaur stood still again for a
few moments looking up into the blue sky. It could see strange noisy
creatures moving in slow circles high above it. It moved up the ramp and
stood atop the giant steel beast. It slowly looked around growling to
itself. A number of the same creatures sat floating atop the ocean only
bigger than the one it now stood on. It saw that land was sitting right up
along side the beast. It had come to a rest along the side of a small cliff
ledge. The beast rose up and down slowly in the water. It turned and looked
back down into the belly of the beast were the infant still stood looking
curiously at him.
The tyrannosaur made a low bark like call and the infant scampered up
the ramp to him making grunting noises. The tyrannosaurs looked down at its
infant standing by it legs waging its tail happy. It growled once at the
infant and then it stepped lightly from the ship on to land and then
turning back to face the infant again and then again making the bark like
call.
The infant stood there for moment looking at the floor of the ship
then the land. It seemed scared by the ship and the land moving in
different directions. The adult called to its infant again. The infant
starred up at him and then howled.
Somewhat annoyed the tyrannosaur growled and then set its head down
over the railing on the deck opening its giant mouth. The infant stepped
inside the gaping mouth and then the tyrannosaur rose back up and set it
head back down again on land were the infant stepped away.
A moment later the giant beast that once held them groaned to life and
began pulling away from the ledge heading back out to sea. It watched as
the other creatures to began pulling away as well and the flying creatures
circled a few more times before they to turned away flying high above them.
The tyrannosaur let out a bellowing roar in the direction of the
ships. Then it turned and began walking into the jungle the infant staying
close behind it.

Reunited
The tyrannosaurs traveled quickly through the jungle. Animals came out
from hiding as the tyrannosaurs moved through the jungle. But the
tyrannosaurs paid no attention to them. The tyrannosaur was more interested
now in the idea of locating its mate. The infant continued to follow along
running in that its parent made in the thick brush as it moved along.
After a few minutes of nonstop walking the adult stopped rising it’s
snout into the air sniffing deeply. The infant looked up at the questioning
eyes of his parent. He whined and ran around the legs of the adult getting
in front of him. But then the tyrannosaur suddenly moved again stepping
over it’s infant almost like it didn’t even know it was there.
For another ten minute the two tyrannosaurs quickly traveled through
the jungle ignoring all else. The infant barely kept up with the adult, and
its constant whines did not help slow it down either. The infant knew his
parent had caught cent of something and that it would not stop moving now
until it located it.
The tyrannosaurs burst from the jungle back out in the bright morning
sun. They now stood just outside the jungle overlooking a large open area
of grass and scattered trees. Across the way near the middle of the
clearing stood the adults mate. She was standing along side some trees
watching a herd of stegosaurs moving along near the other side of the
field.
He roared upon sight of her and began moving across the field towards
her the infant right behind him. The stegosaurs briefly glanced. In the
direction of the tyrannosaurs but did not grow worried of the approaching
animals the just continued to move calling to each other once in a while.
The two adult tyrannosaurs met face to face and nudge one another a
moment with their snouts, the infant cooing below them happy. They purred
to each other placing their heads together as a sign of greeting. Then they
stepped apart to watch the infant as it hoped up and down. The mother rex
gently nudged her infant bumping him to the ground. The infant kicked in
the air pawing at her then got back up growling excitedly.
The male looked up when shadows passed overhead. There were a few
flying creatures circling the area. One glided up to a dead tree fifty
yards away and perched itself their. Closing it’s wing slightly it let out
a screeching cry.
Both tyrannosaurs continued to watch their infant play. Now though the
mother finally noticed the strange object on the infants right leg. It did
recall seeing it once when they recovered the infant from the little
creatures. She sniffed at it smelling the scent of one little creature that
had once had their paws on him. She growled and licked the cast to cover up
the scent with her own saliva.
Shortly after their reuniting the trio of tyrannosaurs walked back in
to the jungle together, heading back to their nest. They walked until they
came to a large trail. It was one of their own personal trails. It would
lead them right near their nesting grounds. The male lead while the infant
walked behind him and the female short ways behind the infant.
The trio walked until they reached the area of their nest. The male
stopped one hundred yards away from the nest. He became tense and
aggravated. He looked back at his infant and mate growling.
The female crouched down by the infant as the male turn away again and
began moving towards the nest. As it moved it sniffed the air every few
feet it got closer to the nest. It could smell a group of animals. Then at
fifty yards it saw them all hanging around the nest. The tyrannosaur roared
and charged forward with thundering footsteps. It jumped through overgrowth
and slammed down into the clearing around their nest roaring again as
dozens of little green animals chattered and fled in every direction. The
tyrannosaur roared again at the fleeing animals and it stood poised over
the nest.
After a moment the sound the little animals made died away into the
jungle. But the tyrannosaur continued to stand poised growling. Small
animals or large animals he did not want anyone to mess around with their
nest. After another moment the tyrannosaur looked back to where it’s mate
and infant still were and called to them all was clear.
Together at the nest the adults lay down on either side watching the
infant as it played with some rib bones. Kicking them around and picking
one up in his mouth shaking it hard. The infant continued to play for a few
more minutes before it began to yawn. The infant curled up into a fetal
position and soon was sleeping. The adults continued to watch him.

Hunting
It was early morning; the sun was just beginning to show through the
trees. The two adult tyrannosaurs yawned loudly. They had both lain awake
through much of the night to keep watch over their infant. The male
stretched his long body out yawning again. Then he picked himself up off
the ground with his legs. He leaned up against a couple trees and began
slightly moving up and down back and forth scratching his hindquarters.
Then the female got up and stretched her own body high into the air put one
leg then other out behind her stretching them.
A few minutes later the infant awoke. Groggy eyed her looked up at
his parents. Yawning he then growled at them, and then whined. He was
hungry very hungry. He had not eaten on over a day now.
The adult tyrannosaurs looked at each other for a moment. Then the
female made a few low growls and the male groaned in returned. He was being
told to go hunt for them. He left them both heading for the nearest game
trail to them.
Though the tyrannosaurs preferred to hunt mainly at night. Most of the
prey was not so active then or sleeping. Yet their infant was in need of
some fresh food so he would have to attempt to catch something unless he
got lucky and found something already dead he could just carry back to the
nest with him. As he moved out of view of the nest the female roared and
the male roared back in reply.
Back at the nest the infant stood now fully awake. Though hungry he
was now in a playful mood. It ran in between the legs of its mother
growling and biting at the air. Mother watched as the infant then tried
chasing something flying around in the air. The infant snapped his jaws
shut just short of it every time. As the infant played the mother began a
much need cleaning of the nest.
She took hold of as many bones as she could with her mouth and carried
them a ways away in to the jungle. Then she dropped them, letting the fall
in the already huge pile of bones of meals long ago already collected
there. Flies swarmed in the thousands here fighting over the rotten flesh
that still clung to some bones. She gathered up bones twice more and then
she began scrapping away a bunch of the old bedding in the center of the
nest.
The infant played just outside of the nest as she worked. Using her
feet she kicked and scratched much of the old bedding out of the nest. When
she felt the nest was clean enough she began tearing away giant fronds away
from near by plants and dropping them in the center of the nest.
The infant scrambled over the dirt mounds around the nest and began
spinning in circles trying to snatch leaves as they fell from his mother’s
mouth to the ground. He finally caught a leaf and chewed on it and shook it
around growling. Then he dropped it and pinned it to the ground with one
foot and proceed to shred it to bits.
Elsewhere, the male tyrannosaur continued its search for food. He had
traveled a few miles through some of the denser jungle. H would stop every
once in a while sniffing the air hoping to catch scent of prey. Then he
would continue along the trail.
Then he came upon the abandoned town that had once been the home to
InGen workers. He walked though a large chunk of the broken wall. He
sniffed the ground some. He new at times animal would hang around this
place, but at the moment there were none and scent trails were old by at
least a day.
He left and continued along the concrete wall of the long dead town.
Soon the trail led away from the town.
After another couple miles of walking he came to a cliff located in
the central part of the island. Here the wind brought the scent of prey to
his nostrils.
He caught the scent of the three horn animals. Triceratops were
grazing some place along this cliff face he was very sure of it. There was
nothing good to conceal himself with along here though. Only a few trees,
bushes, and tall grass lay along the cliff. Heavy cover was almost one
hundred yards to the left. If he used that he would more than likely give
his position away from noise. His only advantage on these animals was their
bad eyesight and the present direction of the wind.
Quickly but quietly the cliff ledge staying as low as he could. Even
for his size his footsteps made little vibration.
When he finally caught sight of the herd he grew more cautious slowing
his pace down even more as he continued forward. These could be dangerous
animals to deal with. If he could get close enough he could maybe startle
the animals before they knew he was there and maybe cause them to panic
enough to make them run and keep them from grouping into a circle of horns
to protect any young and themselves.
He was now only maybe sixty yards away and the triceratops had no clue
he was there yet. He continued one little step at a time. He had them for
sure. He moved another five yards.
A sudden screech from high above caused the rex to freeze in his
tracks and snap his head up to look. Then the triceratops began crying out
in sudden alarm. Fly creatures had just given him away. He growled to
himself as he turned back to the herd. They had grouped together in a
circle has he feared they would do. The triceratops continued to cry out
swinging the heads side to side a bit.
One of the triceratops stood alone from the rest of the herd.
Obviously this was the herd leader. Just the size of the animal told the
rex this along with the stance the animal had. A dead stare and it head
bent forward making the two longer horns protrude out more.
The tyrannosaur watched as the triceratops stamped and scratched at
the ground. The tyrannosaur knew this meant trouble for him in a big way.
The tyrannosaur began slowly backing off.
The triceratops charged trumpeting in full anger. The tyrannosaur
began backing away faster but the triceratops kept on coming for him. The
tyrannosaur glanced at the now fleeing herd head for cover then fully
focused on the charging triceratops.
The tyrannosaur was going to turn and make a run for it but the
triceratops had gotten to close for him to dare turn his back on him.
The tyrannosaur stopped and as the triceratops closed in he raised one
foot.
He slammed his foot back on the triceratopses face avoiding the horns
barely. The triceratopses head slammed into the ground along with it body a
spilt second later, but its momentum kept it sliding along the ground and
the tyrannosaur then was knocked backwards off his feet as well.
Crashing backwards to the ground away from the triceratops the rex
rolled away. Dust, dirt, and grass flew high into the air. The tyrannosaur
got on his feet as soon as he could as for the triceratops was fixing to
charge him again already.
The triceratops immediately charged again roaring mad. The tyrannosaur
jumped clear to the left of the on coming attack. The triceratops skidded
along the ground a moment, turned, and charged again. Again the tyrannosaur
jumped out of its way only this time when the triceratops tried to stop and
turn again the tyrannosaur leaped for him and landed on it’s back.
Using the large talons on its feet the tyrannosaur gripped the
triceratops in the back and using it’s mouth bit down on the bony frill.
The triceratops bucked and spun in circles trying to knock the tyrannosaur
off, but the tyrannosaur simply dug it claws deeper in to the hide of the
triceratops. The tyrannosaur let go of the frill and then bit down on the
triceratopses neck right away. The triceratops roared in pain and anger as
it bucked again. It tried to squeeze its frill back against to tyrannosaur
to make it let go. They tyrannosaur held tight, it’s teeth sinking through
flesh with every struggling move the triceratops made.
The triceratops bucked again and this time the tyrannosaur lost it’s
footing and had to jump away before it fell. The tyrannosaur faced off with
the triceratops again all it could see was the frill the sharp horns and
the angry looking dark brown eyes of the animal when it stood there
directly in front of him.
The scent of fresh blood filled the air. The tyrannosaur roared
deafeningly loud at the triceratops. Then they started to circle keeping
their distances from one another. They mocked attacked each other. They
tyrannosaurs roaring them making a fake lunge and snapping its mouth shut.
The triceratops just kept it horns train on the tyrannosaur snorting. They
were both waiting for the other to make a move that would leave open to
attack.
The triceratops moved charging. This surprised the tyrannosaur. The
triceratops swung its horns for a leg, and the tyrannosaur tried to move
out of striking distance at the last moment by jumping to one side.
The tyrannosaur landed back on the ground dust flying as the
triceratops readied for attack again. It suddenly felt a sharp pain along
the lower half of it right leg. The triceratops had managed to put a foot
long cut on him but it was nothing to stop him. He let the blood flow
freely uncaring.
Now the tyrannosaur charged the triceratops. Clamping down on one of
the long horns with it massive jaws a short tug of war ensued.
The tyrannosaur held tight onto the one horn and with all its might
forced the triceratops to the ground and then began to push it backwards
some. But the triceratops got a foothold and the rex was no longer able to
push the triceratops back.
Now the triceratops began forcing the tyrannosaur back. The
tyrannosaur stepped back, but it didn’t dare let get though, it just held
onto the horn trying to keep from being run over. The triceratops tried
shaking its head to make the tyrannosaur loose its grip.
As the tyrannosaur was forced back it attempted to look were it was
being pushed to with one eye. It saw the ledge of the cliff immediately was
directly behind it only a few yards away. A few more steps back and it
would all over for him. With all the strength the tyrannosaur could muster
he twisted his had still hold onto the horn forcing the triceratopses had
to the ground again but it kept moving him back still.
There was sudden loud cracking sound followed by a snap. The
tyrannosaur suddenly was stepping forward almost stumbling over the
triceratops. The tyrannosaur was now holding a chunk of the horn in its
jaws.
Free for the moment, the tyrannosaur used the triceratopses moment of
confusing to bat a haste retreat. Dropping the piece of horn he ran full
speed along the ledge passing by the heard still gathered among the trees.
They roared as he went by.
The tyrannosaur looked back as he ran the triceratops was running
after him but not in a serious manner, and then it stopped all together
turning back for the herd snorting
The tyrannosaur continued to run slowing down as it got further away
until the triceratopses were out of view. The tyrannosaur stopped resting
briefly. His attempt to kill a triceratops failed miserably.

Rex vs. Raptors
The tyrannosaur continued panting a little bit still; the ledge was
slowly sloping down to solid ground. He was in need of some water now. From
where he was he could still see the islands main river that ran right
through most of the island in the central region. That would be his next
stop.
At ground level again the tyrannosaur made its way to the river. He
moved through the woods until he came to a game trail. The scent of the
pack hunter loomed here. These small but deadly creatures had once tried to
wipe out their nest when his mate had just laid their only egg.
The tyrannosaur decided to follow the trail a short ways. It did head
in the direction of the river. Then as it walked it began to smell
something. Though the winds were calmer in the trees the sent of blood,
fresh blood was very strong. This animal must have died not all that long
ago. The only thing was the pack hunters were apparently also around
whatever animals it was, as for their scent grew stronger as well. The
tyrannosaur made the choice to go investigate the dead animal and see how
many of the pack hunters were around it. Perhaps it could steel the animal?
It continued down the small trail, and it was not at all long before
the tyrannosaur saw the dead animal. It was a young stegosaur, maybe two
years old. Around the stegosaur were three of the pack hunters. The
tyrannosaur scanned the field they were in for others. No others were
present though. They alone must have brought it down?
The field the raptor were in was not all that big at the other end of
it was a herd of stegosaurs. The dead one must have belonged with them.
They were roaring and moving off away from the pack hunters at the same
time. The pack didn’t seem to notice the rest of the stegosaurs; they were
now fighting amongst each other over the kill it seemed.
The tyrannosaur would need to act soon before the raptors would send
one to collect the rest of the pack. Then he would have no chance at it.
While they fought the tyrannosaur began charging into and through the field
for them.
The raptors snapped at each other then two of them went into a tumble
rolling through the grass growling and hissing while the other watched a
moment. Then the sound of heavy footsteps and the ground vibrating caused
the one raptor to look behind it. The others never noticing cause they were
to busy fighting each other. The one raptor that saw the tyrannosaur went
directly into a defensive posture hissing.
The other two now stopped fighting when they realized something was
wrong. Then they to knew. They felt the vibrations and then heard a mighty
roar.
Within only moments the tyrannosaur was on them. The one who spotted
him first now charged forward letting out an attack scream. The tyrannosaur
roared at the on approaching raptor.
The raptor leaped high into the air its sickle claws extended, and its
claws out stretched. It screamed again. The tyrannosaur made no attempt to
get out of the way. It just kept moving and when the raptor was almost on
him he swung his head to one side and then back again striking the raptor
and sending sailing through the air and crashing to the ground in a cloud
of dust.
The other two raptors started an attack now. Running up along both
side of the tyrannosaur they went for the legs. The tyrannosaur roared
enraged when raptor latched onto its already hurt leg. He stopped running
and did a half spin as he went for that raptor, its jaws crunching down on
the raptors torso and then ripping it away and then slamming the body to
the ground.
The tyrannosaur roared in pain as the other raptor slashed away on his
other leg. He lifted his leg up and tried kicking to shake the raptor off
him. The tyrannosaur kicked wildly, the raptor still clinging to its leg
and trying to bite ever chance it got. Suddenly the raptors lost it grip it
claws tore away from the flesh and the tyrannosaur roared in pain again.
The raptor hit the ground landing on its back. The sun vanished from its
eyes; all it saw next was as large foot rushing for him.
The tyrannosaur roared and stepped back revealing the squashed mangled
body of its last attacker. Then the tyrannosaur focused on the stegosaur.
It began moving for it but a scream off to its left stopped it. Quickly
looking to the left the tyrannosaur saw the raptor that had first attacked
him was jumping for him again. The tyrannosaur tried to duck the on coming
attack but was not able to get low enough and the raptor landed on his
back.
The raptor dug its sickle claws deep in the tyrannosaurs back. The
tyrannosaur roared and spun in quick circles snapping at the raptor with it
s jaws but the raptor remain just out of reach. The tyrannosaur roared in
rage as the raptor slashed across his back with one clawed hand. Roaring
again the tyrannosaur suddenly dropped to the ground and rolled catching
the raptor by total surprise as it was crushed under the tyrannosaurs own
weight.
Rolling back onto its belly the tyrannosaur looked back at the crushed
raptor stuck to its back still. As it rose to its feet again the raptor
slid off its back landing in a sort of heap on the ground. Now that the
raptors had been done away with the tyrannosaur had the stegosaur to
itself. However, now it was more interested in some water.
At the rivers edge the tyrannosaur waded out into the water and then
submerging much of its body it letting the water wash over the wounds it
had taken on. It winced a bit from the pain but it subsided. Then it let
itself sink a bit more and it began rolling its bulky body around and
purring while stirring up the mud. The water went from clear to black in
seconds.
The rex pulled itself clear of the river after a couple minutes and
once the water had cleared again it began heavily drinking. Once it had its
fill it went to a spot along the river that was very muddy along one edge
and rolled through the mud covering the wounds on its legs and back it had
sustained a bit. Then it headed back to the stegosaur.
A group of those little green pests had already started to eat away at
the stegosaur. A simple loud roar and the little beasts chattered in alarm
and fled for cover. The rex stepped up to the stegosaur lying on its side.
A brief sniffing and the rex clamped down on a hind leg of the animal while
putting on of his feet on the animal’s side he began pulling and tearing
the leg clear of it joints and then the flesh began tearing until the hole
leg was free of the body.
Setting the leg aside the tyrannosaur began to eat some of the
stegosaur. Then after a few minutes it picked the hind leg up again and
headed back for the nest. It had taken him much of the day to obtain this
meal.
Back at the nest again the tyrannosaur dropped the leg into their nest
for the infant to eat what it wanted. The infant wasted no time and began
gnawing away at the meat. The female then left the nest now heading in the
direction that her mate had pointed her in. Perhaps she could eat what was
left of the carcass before other predators got to it again.
As night began to settle in, the infant fell asleep curing up in the
center of the nest while its parents lay down encircling the nest.

Lost
Some months had passed now since the two tyrannosaurs had been through
their adventure in the concrete jungle. The infant had grown some and the
cast that had once been on the infant had fallen off some time ago now. The
infant had luckily fully recovered.
Feeling truly safe again the adults would again leave their still
young infant alone for longer periods of time some days. And they began
taking him on hunts once in a grand while though he was still to young to
really understand things, plus more often than not he would give them away
when he got to tag along.
At the moment it was early morning the sun just starting to show. Both
tyrannosaurs were stalking a small herd of maiasuars. The herd was moving
slowly through the jungle. The tyrannosaurs studied every animal looking
for the one that would be the easiest to take down. After a quick study of
the herd they found one to go for, an older maiasaur that was traveling in
the back of the group.
Then tyrannosaurs began to make their move.
Meanwhile at the rex nest the infant was gnawing on the remains of a
previous meal still. Picking up a piece of a leg bone the infant tossed it
away and then pounced for it when it hit the ground a couple feet away
again. The infant tumbled around on the ground grunting, growling, and
kicking the piece of bone around.
Snap.
The infant stopped dead still, silent. Still lying on the ground it
quickly looked around for the source of the noise in the surrounding
foliage. It could not see anything. Fronds from the plants swayed gently in
a breeze. Then it suddenly smelled something. Something it did not like at
all. It was the pack hunter.
The infant jumped to its feet standing head low, tail erect, arms with
claws out, and growled as menacingly as it could. It searched slowly for
the animals; it knew they were there. Then it spotted one, just beyond some
fronds standing dead still looking back with one eye.
The infant starred back at the raptor not taking its eyes off it. The
raptor just stood there looking back no motion of any kind. Then the infant
was sure it saw the raptors on eye move quickly left to right.
Noises erupted from either side of the nest. Startled the infant
quickly looked left and right as two other raptors appeared and rush for
him from either side. A moment of surprise and then fear hit the infant as
the raptors charged, screamed, and then leapt bodily into the air for him.
Acting quickly the infant just dropped flat to the ground as the got
closer.
The two raptors not expecting this move lost concentration and
collided with each other hitting hard missing the infant by only inches.
They landed on the ground in a daze. While the two raptors lay dazed the
infant used the moment to flee the nest into the thick brush.
The once motionless raptor now moved now bolting forward through the
fronds and after the infant followed by two others, leaving the two dazed
ones behind them.
The infant ran through the brush dodging low laying branches and
jumping small fallen trees. The three raptors come at him from behind in
hot pursuit. The brush was so think though that the raptors had trouble
tracking the infant and maneuvering through it.
Highly panicked the infant ran almost blindly now, the screams of the
raptors right behind him. The infant ducked under a tree still running.
One raptor did not realize the tree was there and before it could alter its
course it slammed chest first into it and did a 360 slamming hard back to
the ground.
The infant was tiring fast from running. But it could hear the
pounding steps of the remaining to getting closer. They would have him in
only a few more seconds’ time.
A sudden scream and the sound of jaws snapping shut.
A very quick glance and the infant saw a raptors head just pulling
away from him for another strike.
The infant looked ahead seeing a low-lying tree limb. He raced for it
panting. He ducked at the last moment passing under it. The raptor was so
intent on getting the infant it never saw the branch and before it knew
what hit it, it to was flung backwards into the ground hard. However, it
got right up again in only a few seconds.
The two raptors continued their chase and they began closing in on the
infant once more. However when the infant seemed to just vanish in to the
ground ahead of them one raptor slowed down cautious but the other raced by
at full speed and leaped through a group of bushes were infant had vanished
expecting to pounce on it.
The raptors eyes widened and it let out a scream of surprise when it
saw the ground get further away from it. Its leap was now turning into a
150-foot drop.
The other raptor came to a stop at edge were the ground began sloping
away sharply. It watched as it partner fell kicking wildly in the air.
The falling raptor let out a panicked scream again as the ground rushed
at it. It let out a muffled grunt at it slammed bodily into the ground and
then rolled a number of feet then stopping not moving.
The remaining raptor complete ignored the groans still coming from its
fallen companion. It scanned the side of the slope still looking for the
infant. The slope was covered in foliage though the infant had hidden
itself along the slope some place. The raptor slowly scanned the slope for
any odd movement.
The distant sounds of the adult tyrannosaur told the raptor it would
be best to get away. It ran off to collect the others with no concern for
the raptor lying at the bottom of the slope.
A few minutes passed by and the infant came out of hiding. He had
gotten tangled up in a vine plant and had just stayed there the whole time
concealed just enough from view. Using his teeth the infant bit way a few
vines still entangled around one leg. When the last vine restraint was bit
through the infant suddenly began sliding down the rest of the slope unable
to stop.
The infant finally came to a stop when it collided wit a bush at the
bottom of the slope. Disoriented the infant tried to stand up, the woods
around him spun crazy for a moment, but its vision soon corrected and
everything was still again.
Then the infant realized it was standing next to the one raptor lying
on the ground still. It jumped back making a hissing growl. Scratching the
ground with one foot the infant growled again then pounced on top of the
raptor. It snarled and let out a howl as if saying he had beaten the animal
himself.
The animal moved slightly and the infant jumped away spooked running
away again away from it.
The sounds of the parents roars caused the infant to pause and listen
form them again. When he heard them again he started walking in the
direction he thought they were coming from. The infant had not yet truly
been on its own out side of the nest so it didn’t know it own way back to
the nest and it didn’t want to go back because of the pack hunters. So the
infant followed the steep hillside howling every so often in effort to
attract the attention of it parents.
After some time of walking the infant left the thick jungle and
stepped out on to what was once an access road, now over grown with grass.
He traveled along the road unaware he was going to be passing by his nest
only a hundred yards off to his left concealed from view.
The infant continued to move along the old road following the winding
curves and bends. It was peaceful now the only noise coming from birds high
in the trees. The infant howled once again and listened for a response but
never received one. The infant knew that if it continued to call out
constantly it would risk attracting unwanted attention.
He moved on now letting his own curiosity take over. He moved along
sniffing the ground, trees, and plant as he moved by them. And when he
spooked a tiny mouse from hiding he tried to catch it but it was to fast
for him to track.
Eventually he came to a Y intersection in the road. Not all that sure
where either way led he just started walking down the smaller of the two
pathways though small saplings grew in the path it was still useable and
eventually he came to a tiny stream. He had not had much to at this morning
nor drink yet either. Bending down he began lapping up water. He stepped in
to the stream splashing the water around with a foot. He let himself fall
down in the water and he splashed about excited. Standing back up he shook
the water off his body best he could.
The infant heard a couple hooting sounds but ignored them thinking it
was only a bird. The strange hoots sound again and the infant stopped
playing in the water. Not moving at all the infant search the foliage in
front of him with his eyes only. He only saw heavy leaf cover and snarled
branches. When he looked up a bit higher he saw something that did not
match with the surrounding foliage to well.
Showing through the branches was an animal with a long green neck, a
narrow head, and a flaming red V shaped head crest. The rest of it body was
still hidden but the animal was maybe ten feet tall. The animal cocked its
head blink its eyes and made a soft hooting call.
The infant just stared back. In all his time on the island he had not
ever seen this animal.
The unknown animal roared now and a large brightly colored frill
flared out rattling. The animal roared again and the infant took one step
back growling.
At that moment another one of the animals appeared attracted by the
noises of the first. This new animal roared and the infant turned to look
just as the other animal snapped its head in one swift motion.
The infant was looking at the new arrival only a moment when it felt
something hot, and wet smack him on the back of his head and neck and what
ever hit him had enough force to almost knock him down. The infant looked
back at his attacker whose attention had now focused on the intruder.
The animal seemed to forget about the infant. It roared and plowing
its way through the tree branches and brush it went for the other animal.
The intruder fled backing away out of view hissing.
The infant used this moment to flee. The infant struggled through
heavy overgrowth ignoring the stinging feeling from the goop. He moved
slowly but steadily along. Then after a short while left the jungle and was
now standing in a small field. The sun was high now beating down warm on
his back.
He knew this place he had been here once before on a hunt with his
parents. He knew now he was not even close to the nest. He howled a few
times as he walked up to the rivers edge.
There was no answer still.
The infant looked down in the clear flowing water. It saw things
swimming along the bottom of the riverbed. The water was too deep though to
try getting them. Then the infant started getting an irritated feeling from
the goop drying on the back of his had and neck again. Rolling onto his
back he began rubbing his head and neck in the grass and dirt trying to
remove the gunk.
At the nest again the two tyrannosaurs rushed forward sniffing and
searching dropping the remains of the kill they had brought back. The scent
of the pack hunter was heavy in the air, and footprints of the animals were
visible in the nest as well. Their infant was gone. The tyrannosaurs roared
enraged.
The infant looked up when it heard the loud mad roars coming from its
parent’s way back in the other direction. Their roars seemed to echo across
the island. Birds everywhere suddenly left the trees flying away.
Getting to it feet again the infant was going to reply back but
something odd began to happen. The ground began to shake. The infant could
barely stand. Then some of the earth along the river gave way spilling the
infant down into the river.
The infant struggled to the surface. Though the quake was over he was
now floating down river. The infant swam to one side and tried getting up
splashing and kicking, but the embankment was to high for him and he
slipped back under water.
Surfacing again he saw a large leafless branch floating past him. He
swam for it and taking hold of it his tiny-fingered hands kind of pulled
himself on to the branch using it as a flotation device so he would not
tire from swimming.
Secure now the infant relaxed as it continued to float down the river.
It kept an eye out for a place to exit. Yet the infant grew tired and still
holding onto the branch it closed it eyes letting the current slowly carry
him along.
The infant suddenly woke. Blinking its big yellow eyes it looked to
the sky. The sun was still high, it had no idea how long it had dosed off.
The sounds of numerous animals growling caught his attention now. They
were some place off to his right up ahead. He recognized the growls.
Pack hunters, lots of them.
He continued floating letting himself sink into the water more while
still holding onto the branch. Rounding a bend he saw the group of pack
hunters. They were congregated in a circle for the most part a couple lying
down. They were maybe only forty yards inland from the river. And to the
infant dismay this would have been a spot to exit the river finally. The
infant though just remained silent and still hoping to go unnoticed.
The pack hunters seemed unaware of him. They were watching the packs
only infants playing in the center of their circle. One of them did turn
and look towards the river when the large branch floated by though. However
it turned its attention back to the infants when one bumped her leg. She
snapped at it.
The infant continued down river unnoticed but remain motionless until
the pack hunters were out of sight.
Large open fields of grass were on either side of the river now. The
sun still beating warm, no clouds in the sky. The infant had been stuck in
the river for some time now and he was growing tired of holding the branch.
However, finally again he saw a place he could exit the river from.
Just down river a ways away was a muddy shallow embankment on the right.
Letting go of the branch h swam for it. As he neared a group of gallimimus
that had been basking in the sun got up calling in alarm and left the area.
Then infant stepped up out of the river and vigorously shook its water
soaked body. Then he wondered of in the same direction the other animals
had gone. After traveling through some jungle he howled again still trying
to attract his parents.
He got an answer back this time but it was not his parent’s call.
He heard a deep rumbling long trumpet like calls coming from some
place ahead of him. The jungle was so dense though he could not see what
was making it yet. The animals called out again. Then he came to the edge
of a large clearing.
The animals he saw were gigantic beasts, long tails, and necks with
tiny heads high in the air connected to massive bodies. There were four
animals standing together. They were all light brown in color. Their
underbellies a light tan brown. The whole area around these animals was
trampled and crushed. This was their home territory possibly. The infant
stayed hidden among the foliage watching them move. The ground shook with
ever little footstep as they grazed. The infant continued to watch them. He
had only seen the once before and both his parents had avoided them. The
tails on these animals could snap a rex neck with little effort.
When one of the giants turned its tail swung high over the infant and
it could feel a breeze cause by the long tail. The breeze caused other
movement in the foliage. A large black beetle came into view of the infant
crawling along a twig. The beetle opened its wings and with a quick buzz
landed on the infant snout.
The infant shock his head but the beetle held on only making
chittering noises. The infant blinked, looking at the beetle almost made
him get cross-eyed. He flared is nostrils a couple times. The beetle flexed
its wings but remained attached to his nose.
A funny sensation began growing in his nose. The infant stepped back a
bit shacking his head and he sneezed sending the beetle flying when he
snapped his head in response to the sneeze.
The giants suddenly grew silent. Moving their necks like cranes they
searched for the animal that made the sound.
The infant dropped to the ground as flat as he could get. When the
giants did not find what had made the noise they began stomping the ground
with one front foot as a warning that what ever was out there better leave.
The infant caught on to the warning right away and staying out of view
slinked his way passed the giants.
Having passed the giants safely suddenly felt a wave of overwhelming
exhaustion. He was tired so he found himself a place among some fronds and
settled down to rest for a while. He drifted to sleep in only a few
minutes.

The Invisible Hunters
The infant woke up yawning and stretched out his neck and legs flexing
his toes. Looking around it was dusk the sky shown a beautiful red orange
in color.
His stomach growled as he began moving again. He crawled and stumbled
his way through the heavy over growth, until he came to yet another beaten
path again. It was cut off on one end by couple fallen trees. Yet in the
other direction it was clear save for tall grass. Following this small path
the infant he moved for a couple hundred yards following the curves and
bends.
It was not almost totally dark, only the light of moon to show the
way, yet the infant saw just fine. Soon he cane to a T-junction in the
path. Here the infant smelled something familiar, it was faint but he
recognized it, the scent of his parents. A separate game trail they used on
a regular basic was just beyond some foliage on the other side of the path
he was now on.
He immediately got on the trail and began following. The scent was old
but this trail would lead him to the nest no matter where he got on it
from.
This particular trial the tyrannosaurs used from where the infant
stood right now would lead him just inside, along one the metal fence walls
of the abandoned harbor and then up along the road to the labs before
curving back inland through the forest again towards the town and then to
the nest.
If he could stay on this trail he could be back home with in two hours
maybe. He started along the trail. The sounds of the night were more
frightening to the infant now that it was alone outside the safety of the
nest. Every little noise and the infant would stop and look around then
run a bit before walking again.
Up in the distance there was a bright glow, and the faint sound of
crashing waves could be heard. Upon reaching the source of the light the
infant saw he was now at the harbor. The single working light post stood
just beyond the large rust covered gates leading into the harbor. On of the
gates was rusted shut while the other creaked in the breeze.
He walked by a large white bus that sat unused in front of the gates
for some years and then through the large gates. He kept to the side of the
metal fencing. Then he came to the other gate. Both the doors were off
their hinges lying bent out of shape on the ground. He was going to start
up the hill when he heard something. It sounded like a low growl but it was
faint, coming from the other side of the harbor were the two large
warehouses sat.
Was that the growl from one of his parents? He was not sure it seemed
to resemble them but he could not really tell. He howled as loud as he
could once but decided not to again. Many unknowns roamed these parts at
night; he could give himself away much more easy if he called out. The
infant curious moved across the grounds passing by some large steel
containers. Then passing an old white shack and a large stone building,
beyond that sat the two large warehouses. He listened again and heard the
growls again. They were coming from inside the warehouse farthest away from
him.
He ventured forward until he was standing next to the big steel doors
of the warehouse. Looking inside the infant saw nothing but crates of all
shapes and sizes and at the other end of the warehouse another set of open
steel doors. He saw no animal in the building but yet he still heard
something. Now he was curious and he entered the warehouse to look for what
was making that growling sound.
It slowly ventured into the warehouse looking around at the crates
stacked atop each other. Now there was an eerie silence. What it was that
had made the noise had stopped. The infant stopped when it was underneath
the catwalk that ran through the center of the warehouse. There was a
sudden loud creak from behind. Looking back the infant saw only the steel
doors swaying slightly.
Then a new sound caught his attention, the sound of claws scraping
against the asphalt floor in the warehouse. Where had that come from? It
looked around but didn’t see anything moving. The infant was becoming
spooked so growled and hissed at what ever was in the warehouse with it. He
began backing up slowly searching. There was a noise above him. Looking up
he saw a small rectangular box teeter then fall almost right on top of him.
He jumped out of the way as the box fell and smashed apart when it hit the
floor.
Something had to have hit that box for it to fall over. But there was
nothing to be seen.
Something splattered on the floor next to the infant, then again in
the same spot. He looked at it and then bent down to sniff it. It was
defiantly not water it was saliva of some sort.
The infant looked up but still saw nothing. Then as if out of thin air
it saw another drop of saliva fall. Then something else appeared. Fifteen
feet directly above him almost appeared rows of raiser sharp teeth. The
infant hissed trying to be aggressive. It watched as the toothy mouth
flexed slightly. Then suddenly with a roar began rushing for him.
The infant howled and leaped out of the way as teeth bit down on the
asphalt floor. The infant scrambling headed for the doors it had entered
from. Suddenly another set of teeth appeared to his left. They to began
rushing for him. Then now in front of him another set appeared by the
doors. They were coming at him from everywhere from out of nowhere, all he
could see was teeth. The one to his left roared and snapped its jaws shut
just short of his tail. The teeth in front of him began lower closer to the
ground, as he got closer to the doors.
The infant ran right for this set of teeth and just as he got range
the teeth moved for him but he stopped just short of the snapping jaws.
With a quick zig zag the infant was heading out the doors when it then
slammed into something. For a moment he saw a white diagonal patch of skin
appear in thin air right where he had hit but then it vanished all he saw
was asphalt again.
This didn’t stop him though h was already back on his feet and running
and howling like mad as the invisible animals started chasing him outside
the warehouse now. The infant looked back and saw only the teeth of the
animals again but now they were running the area around them seemed to
waver showing their bodies in motion. They matched every thing they around
them.
The infant ran as fast as he could but the roars of his pursuers kept
getting closer with every step then infant ran around the large stone
building and then head for the light poll. It was going to try get to the
containers and look for a place to hide it could make it.
When the infant ran under the light and then passed it noticed the
footsteps slow then stop. He glanced back and after a moment saw them. They
were now standing just outside of the lights reach. He watched as the
toothy mouths worked open and then close on them. They didn’t like the
light.
The infant went back next to the poll as two of the animals moved in
circles beyond the light all he could hear was their footsteps and snarls.
They would not go into the light. Why?
Then he saw a possible reason. When one the animals turned around its
tail swung behind it, the tip of its tail shown pure white when light hit
the skin on the animals tail, and when it was out of the light within
seconds the skin changed matching back to the surroundings again.
He saw the three animals standing together again. He howled into the
air and continued to howl now the animals didn’t like that. They new he was
only a bay and that he attempting to call for his parents. If he kept the
howling up they would surly come for him. The animals growled at each
other.
A number of minutes passed by. The infant continued to howl never
moving from under the light poll.
They had to shut the baby up now. Though they didn’t like to one on
the animals finally stepped in to the light.
The infant stopped howling as the animal appeared revealing its upper
body.
All white the animal had a stumpy roundish head, a small but wide
mouth, and small horns protruding out from above each black eye, a fat
neck, and two arms even more stubby that its parents.
The infant hissed and growled at the animal as it was backing away.
The animal roared right back and was going to charge when the infant opened
it mouth again and a sudden booming roar sounded. The animal stopped as if
suddenly very confused. Another booming roar sounded. It hadn’t been the
baby it was coming from the left. It looked and saw a tyrannosaur running
full bore down the hill road and then saw the second tyrannosaur following.
The tyrannosaurs were down in the harbor in only seconds from the time they
were seen.
The animal was still in a state of confusion and looked back at the
infant then back at the two adults charging for her while the other two
started backing off. She was still visible. She quickly backed out of the
light stepping back in to full darkness but the bull tyrannosaur ran right
for her still.
The infant watched as his parent seemed to slam into thin air, his
body reacting to the impact of the concealed target. The animal toppled
over momentarily showing white where ever its skin was touched.
The female didn’t help her mate she went for her baby guarding it,
while her mate challenged the other predators. They all stood together
some distance away. The tyrannosaur could only barley see them when they
moved causing the world to waver. He roared at them. And took a couple
steps forward. They didn’t move at first but when he took another then
began charging they fled in a hurry. The tyrannosaur held up when they
began running off and went back to the infant and it mate. He looked the
baby over cooing. They both had though they had lost their baby to the pack
hunters. The infant cooed back rubbing against the snouts of both its
parents.
The roars of the three other animals were heard again. It was time to
leave. Though the tyrannosaurs were large they didn’t want to risk
anything. So they left with the infant walking in between them both safe
once again.

Epilogue
Years later
Some years had passed by, in that time tyrannosaurs raised their only
infant the best they could. Teaching him the finer points of hunting,
fighting, and survival though he seemed have that one figured out already
on his own. They looked after him for almost two years before forcing him
to finally fend for itself on the island. The tyrannosaur learned shortly
after he had been forced to leave it was meant to stay this way. Whenever
he crossed paths with either of his parents now they would now attempt to
attack him if he did not leave the area.
As a young adult the tyrannosaur had staked claim to the northern most
part of the island, calling a cave home now.
The young tyrannosaur was feasting on a pachyphalosaurs at the moment
when it faintly heard something. Stepping out into the afternoon sun the
tyrannosaur finished eating the meat it still had in its mouth and listened
for the sound again.
He heard it again a strange unearthly cry, an animal, one he had never
heard before. It was not coming from the island either. It was coming for
out at sea to the west.
