you know what else is great? me.
|Being lost in a forest was always so much fun. But being lost in a forest at night, that was the most fun anyone could have. And lost is exactly where Miles found himself. He’d missed applying for the tournament in the Rose of Orik by only a few hours, all because he had decided to sleep in instead of getting up on time. So, instead of staying to watch, he took off back out into the woods to train some more. Gods knew he needed the training. He couldn’t even protect himself from a wolf, let alone anything else.|
But now it was dark and there wasn’t anything out to protect him from any of the creatures around in the woods. He’d looked around for shelter, first a cave in which a bear chased him out of, then a tree inhabited by lots of very disgruntled squirrels. So now, he sat on the forest floor staring at a tiny fire he’d somehow brought to life. He was just happy it wasn’t so cold anymore. The spring was turning into summer and the nights were cool, but in the winter? It was freezing.
Not only that, Miles also was starving. He’d eaten before he left the Rose but that had been two days ago. His stomach grumbled as he looked up at leaves of the trees around him. Could those be eaten? Would he die if he cooked some of them? What about the bark? Would that be enough to help him? He flopped onto his back and stared up at the night sky. He didn’t even remember which way it was that he had come from. Did moss grow on the North side of the tree? Or the South? Or was it something else? He groaned feeling his stomach clench again searching for any kind of food. “Sorry buddy, nothing again tonight. Maybe tomorrow.” He just felt glad he’d been able to find water to drink or else he’d be in real trouble.
