I look around at my surroundings and search for a solution; a direction to follow. I know that I must keep moving; to stay here means certain death. In time the Morshmen will find me and take the stone that has been entrusted to me. I am uneasy and unnerved, so much of my life has changed and I fear that I am no longer alone. Unable to escape the feeling that I am being watched, I take a deep breath and clear my mind. Surprisingly, this feeling does not frighten me and in some odd way it enchants me. It draws me in; as if I am being called. As I cautiously search, I happen upon a regal looking animal perched high upon a rock. It is quite large, weighing approximately 170 pounds. The animals’ smooth grey coat and crystal eyes captivate me. As I approach the majestic beast it snarls and then grunts with a strange smile like grimace. The large animal continues to mesmerize me. Then with fear of confrontation, I slowly turn and walk away. As I quietly leave; I begin to move quickly until I find myself running. I run until my breath hurts inside my chest. I run as far away from my home in Nicosta, the cave and all that I have ever known. I run until I stumble and fall; as I fall I hit my head on a rock. I watch as the blue sky above spins out of control. Then as if all the events that have led me to this place disappear, I find myself at home again with my family. I am laughing as my little sister Amelia dances and mother sings, while father claps his hands. My home is warm and secure, and I am happy once again.
