Strange neighbors, disappearances, and a sheriff who relishes leisure time.
|The family had been secure and able to procure all they needed because although tough because of age, their query was easy to subdue and carry home. Rearing a family undisturbed under perfect conditions enabled them to thrive. The generations grew and prospered requiring more members to hunt.
Their quiet place was disturbed by a multitude of noises. Defending their home became a priority.
Primed for battle the invaders entered their dwellings. War broke forth between the ferocious and furious inhabitants against the angry and well-armed invaders. Vicious, calculating and resourceful the family members dispatched their aggressors.

Family life continues at the graveyard.
