It took extraordinary circumstances to make any healthy man break into a
cold sweat while standing along the Equator, yet
National Geographic field
researcher Justin Sween could feel such a forewarning of danger saturate his
sun-baked spine and arms. He did not dither if it was malaria or fear that had
summoned this reaction; the cause had just materialized out of the blurring
waves of heat that hovered the vast and open savannah spread before him.
He slowly lowered his binoculars, pushed back his felt breezer hat from the
thin bangs dangling his forehead, and retrieved the Weatherby Mark V safari
rifle slung across his back. Through the scope of his weapon he confirmed
that the hunting party was comprised of six horsemen crossing the arid plain
single file at a leisurely pace. The group intermittently vanished in the haze of
the horizon, with only the glint from their bandoleers, swords, or gun barrels
betraying their progression. A corner of Sween’s upper lip darted upward as
the crosshairs of his rifle locked onto the swathed head of one of the armed
posse, then lilted, as his more tempered side reminded him that it was against
company policy to shoot, let alone kill, even such a deserving target unless it a
defensive measure of last resort.

 “Perhaps, you bastards, some other day,” he softly jeered, as the sporadic
reflections of the relentless African sun finally rounded a distant hillside. He
lowered his rifle and took in a few deep breaths, pausing to look up to a Long-
tailed hawk gazing at him from atop the depleted branches of the areas lone
cluster of sausage trees.
 “What difference does it make?” he questioned the studious bird while
dousing his face and neck with water from his canteen. “They’ve already
slaughtered everything in Garamba worth saving.”
