Rewrite the Story's Ending
What a shock it was when we read about John Thornton and his friends getting attacked and killed by the Yeetahs. We wanted Buck to spend the rest of his life with a man he had grown to love and respect. We wrote a different ending to the story. We hope you will enjoy reading this and will be inspired to write your own ending.
Buck hurried toward the camp of John Thornton. He longed to see his friend again. Buck had been away from the camp for days. His wild yearnings had lead him to chase the moose, wait for the right moment, and move in for the kill.
Buck had eaten the fresh meat with the fierceness of the wolves who had attacked him years before. These wild instincts were fading now that he knew that Thornton was near. Buck crested the hill and saw the camp below. He could not believe his eyes. The camp was a wreck. Mining equipment was flung in every direction. Buck smelled the air. Violence had taken place in this area.
Everything around him was silent. The birds did not even sing. Rabbits and squirrels hid in their burrows. Buck raced ahead with a fear like he had never experienced before. He saw Nig. He was lying face down with an arrow in his back. Close by was one of the sled dogs. He had dragged himself towards the forest, but did not quite make the journey before dying.
A little farther down the trail, Buck stopped. There he found Hans. He too had arrows in his back. What would Buck find? He could not lose the master he loved so dearly. On Buck raced. His heart pounded inside his chest. Buck's mind kept screaming, "No, no, no!" With determination Buck strode onward. There he spotted John Thornton surrounded by 10 Yeetahs.
Buck hurled himself on the one closest to Thornton. With one quick nip the Yeethah's jugular was ripped open. Over he fell releasing Thornton. Thornton rolled over and regained his footing. He reached for his rifle and shot. Another Yeetah fell on this knees, then face down.
The others ran to the woods. They never looked back. Buck raced to Thornton. With one mighty leap he was in Thornton's arms. The two held on to each other. Never again would Buck leave Thornton's side. He followed him everywhere he went. He was never more than a few feet away.
Months later Buck invited his wild friends into the camp. They were welcomed by Thornton, but Buck would never leave Thornton's side again.
