Journey of a Lion: One time while the lion was off hunting for food, Musa began gathering brush, twigs, and sticks to start a fire. Musa thought he heard the lion returning. He spun around with his arms full of sticks. It was not the lion—it was a pack of hungry-looking hyenas. They had their eyes on Musa and they were slinking and snarling towards him. Musa shouted, “Get away, get away from me!” and started to throw his sticks at them. At first, they yelped and backed away but their hungry stomachs gave them courage to return and try to attack the boy. Quickly, Musa climbed up on a ledge to get away but the hyenas moved in underneath and started yelping and snarling at him. It seemed to Musa as if this went on for a long, long time. It was dark now and Musa was scared.
