When the man share is story with others, there’s glee and joy as he exclaims, “He’s alive I know he is alive!” Some see how old the man is and laugh at him, saying “Your father is dead and a man your age is not too far behind.”

When they heard he was going into forest and to cross a great river, that beginning to joke and laugh saying “Maybe his dad is a baboon” another said, “Or a great whale”. One who was lived in the town all his life said to the man, “No one lives out there, why would you even risk your life?”

As he reached the thick of the forest he began to slow lose his scene of direction. There was rows and rows of tree with no seen possible end, in every direction it looked the same.

The man looked up and saw the sun descending and began to make ready for the night. The man began to work on a fire but the leaves and the twigs were too damp. The night began to arrive and the man began to grow cold.

Alone he prayed for direction because he didn’t know where he was and realize how under prepared he was for this adventure.

With the limited resources he had he made himself dinner and prepared a modest tent for the night. As he was lying down on his side, he turned to his backed looked up at the stars and marveled. As he saw the stars he studied it so that he would become lost, making up names for different regions.

The man couldn’t sleep much at all, hearing all the different creatures amongst him kept him awake and the lack of fire to keep him warm throughout the night made it difficult. Nevertheless he awoke and rose and went to venture on toward the river.

As the man was walking he saw an area where the trees stopped, believe it was to the river he began to walk toward that way, but he notice there was not signs of water and began to realized he reached a road that was well worn. He began to follow the road when he discovered that it was in leading him in circles.
