DP Gregoire Fiction - Megamus the Bronze God - Part 2: Cave Bear
Saturday March 20th 2021
Megamus laid there until dawn. See, the problem is, when you're good at everything and self-sufficient, nobody knows when you need help. So, he was left alone until he regained consciousness, because everyone else thought he knew what he was doing. Yes, because sleeping in a heap with your head half buried in the sand while covered in seaweed is what everyone should be doing...
He woke up the next morning, his head spiraling with confusion. He was even more confused when he saw strewn across the beach were dozens of others laying just how he was moments prior.
'Are they truly that dumb?' he thought to himself as he shook the sand from his hair.
Muddling forward he made his way home. There was a lot of work to be done. He was setback a week, and lost his only dog. And so he worked toward gathering more of the materials he needed to replace what he had lost. Fishing pole; basket; net; raft, he even went into the forest looking for wild animals to tame.
Trees moved wildly, wildlife stirring in fear. Rummaging the forests in search of food moved a 3 meter, 900 pound bear. This was a bear of old, this bear is known as the cave bear. Though it primarily ate vegetation, it would eat meat and other edibles when it had to, and this bear was out of tasty bushes to consume.
Cave Bear was so large, it could push over most trees with its massive strength. That's right, its name is Cave Bear now, get over it! Anyway, Cave Bear's paw was so massive, it was the size of an average human torso. That means it can nearly kill a man in one swat of its massive paw!
Cave Bear saw his meal, an unaware capybara. It ran over to get the critter, but the beast scared it off causing it to run up a tree. However, trees were no obstacle for Cave Bear, for it could just knock it over.
But, Cave Bear was messing with the wrong capybara. This was one Megamus was trying to tame, and Megamus watched the whole scene go down. He ran up and punched Cave Bear straight in the nose!
Now, if you were any normal human, you would be dead the instant your fist collided with that bear's nose. But, the Bronze God gave no shits, he wasn't afraid of no bear!
Cave Bear looked down at the puny human, rage in its teary eyes while it bared its teeth at its opponent. With both paws raised, it came in for the kill. However, the Bronze God known as Megamus countered with a bear hug, grappling the huge beast around its waist. And then he used the things momentum against it, suplexing it to the ground.
Cave Bear let out a growl of surprise, well, it was more of a groan. But, that maneuver didn't stop the beast, as it lunged forward, grappling the man with its massive paws. Megamus joined the move by putting his arms around the beast, cupping it by the elbows.
There was no way Megamus would defeat the bear in a contest of strength, so, instead he used the bear's strength against it, because he's a fucking genius. Using the advantage of the elbow grip he swung the bear's arms to the side, shifting the momentum slightly. That was the movement he needed, allowing him to lunge for the animal's tinier back legs.
He rounded out to its side as he tripped it, taking the beast's back. And from a back position, he applied the rear naked choke. Cave Bear stood up on its hind legs in desperation, swinging wildly about. In an act of sheer panic the bear dropped onto its back, attempting to crush its foe!
'This is going to suck, a lot. I just need to hold on, or else I'm dead if I don't,' Megamus thought to himself. He maintained a tight grip around Cave Bear's throat, but he placed both of his knees in a butterfly position behind its back to alleviate some of the weight.
Dust shot everywhere as they landed hard! Megamus was sure the bear cracked a rib, or several... but he didn't care, he had to win, or else he would die. He held onto the choke for a few more moments, Cave Bear struggling to get free, until, eventually its paw tapped his shoulder several times. It gave up! Megamus had won the struggle!
Megamus loosened the grip and crawled out from beneath the barely conscious animal. It licked the back of his hand in a haze. The bear was tamed! He was the BRONZE GOD!
