The bear went straight toward Luka’s house. Luka thought it was pretty strange that the bear kept coming back to their exact location each day for the fourth time in a row. Luka stashed himself behind their living room table so that the bear wouldn’t get spooked if it saw him. He could see the bear casually strolling in his direction. The bear looked pretty calm and didn’t come across as scared or anything.
Still, Luka couldn’t understand why the bear was back again if there wasn’t any food out or any other smells that could have attracted it back. He was pretty curious to find out why seeing the bear each morning was turning into a regular thing. Luka was keen to find out why, but he, of course, knew that the bear was a wild animal, so he would have to keep that in mind if he was going to approach it.
A Third Visit
As Luka went downstairs, he saw the spooked look on his wife's face. She almost looked like she had seen a ghost, but when Luka was in the same spot as before, he was more excited than scared. Secretly, Luka had been waiting for the bear to come back to his yard, so this was his fantasy (if you could call it that) secretly coming true.
Andrea told Luka about all her worries and fears regarding the wild animal and the safety of her family. Luka told her that the windows and doors in their home were properly reinforced and that she had nothing to stress about since their house was made for the things that the wilderness may toss at them.
A Mighty Bear
The mysterious bear left again, and Luka went about his day as usual. The next morning, Luka decided to wait near the glass door downstairs to see if the bear would be back for another stop-by. If the bear was back again, then surely that was a sign that the bear wanted something, but Luka wasn't confident about any of his guesses just yet.
Sure as shooting, as Luka got downstairs, he saw that the black bear was back again. As he was glimpsing out into the backyard, he spotted the leaves of a bush that started to rustle, and there it was. The black bear came out of the bush with its mighty form.
A Dumb Move
Luka peeked at the bear from behind the living room table. The bear saw him and didn't even shy away. The two locked eyes and he wondered what it wanted from him. The bear was making the same motion with its giant paws that Luka had witnessed the first time he saw the animal.
Except this time, the bear seemed like it was beckoning rather than waving. Did the bear want Luka to follow it? He wasn't sure what to do, but he knew that following the bear was probably a really dumb move and that his wife would never approve of it.
He Started Following It
So Luka took some deep breaths. His heart was racing. As he approached the glass, he could feel the sweat dripping down his forehead. Clearly, he was both nervous and excited all at once. For some reason, Luka felt like the bear was waiting to be helped. He just went with his gut and opened the door.
Amazingly, the bear did absolutely nothing. It just stood there, calmly. Luka took some slow steps so as to not alarm the bear. Being extra cautious, Luka made sure not to utter a word. And just like that, the bear started walking slowly back to the woods. Trying to keep an open mind, Luka followed behind, albeit at a safe distance.
