Day 2: As the cool air touched my skin, shivering I sat up opening my swollen eyes. Rubbing them, I could not get the sensation of heat to dissipate from them. I had slept horribly on the thatch floor. Making a mental note to build a bed or at least padding to sleep on tonight, I stretched knocking over my pile of spears. This would be a long day, making a mental note to hopefully build a chest to store things in. I overlooked th oasis, people would have paid a lot of money to go on vacation and see a view like this I thought, and I was trying to escape it. I went to the pile of berries I had collected throwing the smashed and spoiled berries over the side, eating what had remained.
I picked up my tools and spears, sighing as I felt my eyes burn again. My throat was dry and scratchy, I needed water before I became dehydrated. This meant I would need to risk going down to the oasis. Walking down the hill, there was a high pitched screech as a similar dino before started to run at me. Rapidly I lifted my spear and threw it at the dinosaur missing, picking another I threw it hitting the slender dinosaur killing it instantly. I sat down my heart rapidly beating it felt as though it would explode, I could feel the the blood pumping all the way up my neck and throbbing in the back of my head. I caught my breath and my heart rested, picking myself up I went to see the dino. It was like a raptor but small, there was frills around the neck. After much thinking I decided it must be a Dilophosaurus, I thought they were bigger but I guess I was wrong.
I crawled down to the bottom near the oasis, searching for the alligator. Spotting it across the way it appeared to be sunning itself, to my fortune. There was a large blue beam in the distance, that heavilly intrigued me but going there would surely mean death. I kept looking at staring at it wondering what it was. Finally takign this chance I drank enough water that I thought my stomach would burst.
Taking a huge risk, I quietly slid into the water, hoping there was fish I could catch later. To my joy and astonishment I found what look like a Coelacanth, a "living fossil" on Earth. A fish that survived unchanged for millions over years. It was definitely edible, but I wasn't hungry and it was best to preserve the fish than to out fish them.
I decided it best to leave the pool before it got too dangerous, and headed down one of the ravines in hopes to find a human or at least remnants of civilization. I feared that I would be ambushed from some sort of carnivorous dinosaur. I continued forward, with my spear pointed forward, spinning toward the direction whenever I heard a noise. Finally reaching the end I let out a sigh.
Unfortunately there was fighting between a dinosaur and a huge scorpion. Quickly I raised my spear and thrust into the scorpion killing the scorpion. I kept stabbing until I was sure that the scorpion was dead. I looked around for the other dinosaur, to find it groaning in pain. I presumed the scorpion poison must have caused it to become lethargic but not kill, due to its size. I looked at the dinosaur knowing it in a instant, that spiked backed, dwarfed legs, and armored skull could be only one dinosaur the Anklyosaurus. It was a herbivore that had no threat to me unless I enraged it. Feeling sorry for the Anklyo, I collected berries and placed it in front of the Anklyo organizing them by color. Purple, Blue, Red, Yellow, White, and Black. I then walked to the scorpion, the meat would probably be poisoned but the leather would be useful and I butchered it for the hide. I returned to the Anklyo to find that it had eaten all the purple berries and was eating the rest without care. I took it that its favorite berry was the purple ones. I sat there awhile longer thinking, that if I could knock out the dinosaurs without them knowing and then feed them, maybe I could tame one. As the anklyo began to regain strength I left the anklyo in case it became aggressive.
I went through the ravine again, this time with less fear and much quicker. As I came back to the oasis I saw a red laser light, I ran forward as fast as I could. On the ground near the bottom was a something! I was excited that maybe it was something I could use or better something to get me to civilization. My hope diminished as I was just reaching the objects, it crumbled to the ground.
My bad luck would continue as it began to rain. I quickly collected some thatch, and ran home. I threw the thatch on the ground and the hide over it, creating a makeshift sleeping bag. I put my tools on the ground, and looked over the oasis. My hatred grew deeper. I slipped beneath the hide and thatch and closed my eyes. I wouldn't sleep well again, and it was cold.
