In the blink of an eye, I fired twice and Bryce fired at least once. The massive black rhino dropped three yards from Makali. I fell to my knees. My right leg was broken and I had blood streaming from a cut above my right eye. I didn’t even realize the rhino had knocked me into a thorn bush. I had several large 2″ thorns in my left arm and a nice gash above my eye. I didn’t feel any pain for about 5 minutes. Makali was fine, and thank God no one else got hurt. Stan and Alan somehow stayed on their horses.
Makali ran over to me.
“Oh Bwana, oh Bwana, you ok?” he was crying,
“Yes, Sharp Eyes. Thank you for protecting me. Asante, my dear Makali.” I felt the need to embrace my friend and tried to stand. Bryce held me down.
“Just stay put, Cowboy. Let’s check you out first.” Bryce said.
“Thank you too, Bwana Bryce,” said Makali.
“No worries, Makali,” added Bryce. “Besides, where would we find another tracker at this late hour?” he smiled.
Stan and Alan where standing behind me. They were speechless. Stan finally spoke.
“Nice shooting Bwana. I think we should call it a day.”
