you eat the gerbil.

it is satisfying to chew food again, but you are soon left hungry. it is not long before one of the gerbil family skitters by and smells the blood of its murdered brother. the gerbil goes home and tells the rest.

the gerbils are outraged by the news of the slaying and devise a plan against you. one by one, they leap onto your body and climb around to your backside where you cannot reach. they begin gnawing at the skin on your back, much to your horror. they work vigilantly until they chew you down from the spine.
