From yesterday's ending at http://myminipetpig.com/2013/11/nanowrimo-story-petey/
Just as we were about to howl with despair, we saw two very distant lights coming from farther back in the forest. Could it be help?
The lights were coming slowly and they looked like they were bumping up and down. It seemed like they were taking forever to get to us. Beast began to pace back and forth and he gave a few barks as the machine drew closer.
Finally it was close enough that I recognized it as one of those ATV machines. Big and strong enough to get through the snow. Beast, stood off to the side, on guard, but didn't charge and after his few warning barks, was waiting silently. I stood beside him, tail up, ears alert. We both knew this ATV was our last hope.
As the ATV drew to a halt, the psychic lady ran over and started yelling about the situation. The driver removed his helmet, and the face of a gruff middle aged man greeted us. While the face was gruff, it was not completely unfriendly and I saw a twinkle in the eye as the psychic lady went on and on in a frenzied pace.
Finally, he stood up, and I could see he was much taller and wider than my master. He raised a hand to indicate to the jabbering lady to stop. She ignored him and kept going on. He began to laugh and then in words I had never heard before said something. The psychic lady stopped talking. She paused. The ATV man said something again. The psychic lady continued to look confused. Beast and I watched equally confused.
This continued for several exchanges before it became clear that the psychic lady and the ATV man didn't understand each other. The ATV man must only speak another language. The psychic lady paused for a minute, before taking the ATV man's hand and leading him to the edge of the cliff. She pointed to the rope and then yelled down to the people below. The people below yelled back.
The ATV man said "ahhhhhhhhhh" smiled and walked toward the ATV. He climbed on it and started to drive.
Beast began to bark. I joined him. Where was he going? What was he about to do?
