Apun a dark path in the forest near her house, a little girl sat down to eat an
apple. She paused, before reaching up to grab the closest apple. She thought she saw
something. But it was probably just her imagination. It was dark, after all. She sat
back down on the log she had previously seated apun. She pulled the white plastic
knife out of her sidebag and cut the juicy red fruit in half. She set one half on the
log and got up, dropping the other face down in the center of the path. A boy who had
been previously passing, asked her about her curious action. The girl looked up at
him and smiled casually. The boy was not from the village she was from, and was just
out for a long walk. He looked down expecting to see the apple and jumped, startled.
The apple was gone, and there were hand prints in the dirt around where it was, which
was red. He asked the girl what was going on and keeping her smile she calmly
replied; "He was hungry."
