In the Jungle: De Vine Intervention
He flies through the air with the greatest of ease, The daring young man on the flying trapeze...
I knew that someone...or something...was watching me. I had been
walking for more than two hours now. The sun was still shining, but under the
heavy green foliage it was hard to tell.
All of the sudden, I heard a noise that sounded like kaw!kaw!. I jumped
and turned around and there, standing right in front of me was a red
tiger. But not just any red tiger...Nooooh. Uh uh. This one was very
slow. It had blue eyes and it's fur was mostly green. I slowly backed away,
but it started running. I ate as fast as I could until I found a tree I
could climb. I scaled the tree and was very quiet-the silence all
around me was deafening. I saw the tiger pass by below me and I felt weird.
All at once, the jungle came alive all around me. I could hear the
mackaws grrrrrrrr!!!! and the elephants uuurrrrraaauuuu!!!! and the lions
raaaarrrrr!!!. It seemed that all the animals were talking at once, but
I couldn't tell what they were saying!
Then without any warning I heard something coming. Whatever it was
swung in on a vine like Tarzan. But was it a man? Or was it a slimy? As I
watched the figure swing to the next tree I realized he was saying
something...something about clues...clues in the caves under the waterfall.
THIS was the break I'd been waiting for!
"But wait," I called after him. "Which way is the waterfall?" But it
was too late. Whatever it was-was gone.
I listened carefully for the sound of running water, but I heard
nothing-nothing to help me at all, except the small sound of a bird. Well, I
thought to myself, I guess I'll go northwest. And sure enough, after
walking for 99 days, I found the waterfall and the caves with the clues.
