Dawn, wild dogs barked in the background. The barks echoed around the ruins, from directions that could not be identified.

I was afraid to move, but not of getting bitten by the dogs. I was worried: if I took the wrong step, I might send myself to the circle of the wild dogs and brought misfortune to myself that could have been avoided -- So I was afraid of making decisions, not the dogs.
