The tiger is clearly dangerous, so you run through the forest like the wind! Glancing back a few times, you see that it is following you right behind! Luckily, there appears to be a lake nearby, and cats hate water, right? You make a mad dash for the lake and start swimming towards the other side as the tiger, now revealed by the faint moonlight to be half decayed, stops right by the water line and furiously hisses at you having gotten out of its reach.
Wait a second... tigers don't actually hate water. Then why is this one avoiding it? Perhaps it's just a terrible swimmer because its legs are all bone and no flesh. Tough luck, skeletiger.
Pixelween entry number 3. My prompt was "It is right behind you", with a bit of "It strikes" thrown in. Was a little tough working with just 5 colors at most, but I think I got the palette sorted regardless.
