My entire body was numb, I couldn't go on. Finnally, I knelt down and washed my
face in the stream. The cool,freash water slipped through the creases in my cupped hands
as I drank. It ran down my throat. Penny was enjoying a dring too. It was the first time
i'd ever drank water from a stream. I filled my watter bottle with it, then I sat still,
thinking. I have to find food and shelter.I have to. If I don't I'll die. The sun was
setting, and It was getting cold. I shivered.This was supposed to be a fun walk through
the forest, and know, it was a life threatning situation.
I picked up my backpack and unzipped it. Inside I found a sweater,some
dog food,a flashlight,a pocket knife,, and "The Swiss Familly Robinson" I looked at the
book. I hadn't finished it yet,but the familly collected salt,moved into a cave, and built
huts for the winter. I looked at the trees. Perhaphs I could find a cave and gather some
food, then I could use branches from the trees to seal my cave.So, I got up,and went
I kept walking,and walking. There was no sight of food.
"Fish," I said to myself,looking into a lake I had
reached. I had no pole or line, but it was worth a try.
Slowly, I watched the fish, I tried to catch one with my bare hands, but I
didn't touch it. The water was so cold, My hands were shaking. But then I had a better
idea. I pulled out my pocket knife, and when a fish swam by I stabbed the knife into the
water. I missed. Then, in a flash Penny dunked her head in the wated, catching the fish.
But she didn't eat it. She gave it to me. I held the fish,still wiggling in my hands it
was big enough for the both of us.
"Penny!" I said, hugging the sweet dog. "Oh, Penny,Thankyou! You gotta teach me how
to do that!"
I had to clean the fish, so I took off one of my socks and wiped the
fish with it, dunking it in water, then taking it out again. I wrapped it up int the
sweater, then I head out to find a cave.
Gotta go! Tell me what you think!
