Howard loves catching turtles at the pond he secrets himself away to, making his way there in the morning and staying the day through. Carrying his shotgun and pocket pistol, he carves a path into the vastness, taking with him everything he needs. Turtles like the scent of blood and Howard brings along something to appease them, but his efforts attract something else. Something predatory.
