4. the fight for survival

"Ok. Samuel is a nice guy, but I'm kinda scared of him." Mira wrote "The whole situation is just awkward. He showed up, stole my backpack, and made me fish. I feel like its a big setup."

She walked around and looked for a good area to set up a trap for maybe a squirrel or bunny or something. She just needed an idea to get food, and that was an idea that she couldn't pass up. Thats how she caught herself up on food. 

Every so often her and Sam move to a new location, so they wont get caught. They have been out here for maybe, two three weeks? They lost track of time. Mira grew to like Sam and Sam grew to like Mira. 

"Hey Mira, Do you want to make a campfire and s'mores tonight?" Sam asked. He pulls out marshmallows and chocolate and gram crackers. 

"Yeah! That's a great idea Sam." Mira said

That night they made s'mores and sat around the campfire and told stories about how they ran away. 

"I Never told you my story, did I?" Sam said

"No" Mira answered

"Well," Sam sighed "My parents were always fighting and they eventually got a divorce. I couldn't take the constant arguing about who gets me when, so I ran away. Now I get me whenever I want." 

"I had no clue Sam, I'm so sorry." Mira said sympathetically 

"Its alright Mira. Don't be sorry."

Sam put out the fire and they both went to sleep. Laying next to each other under Mira's blanket for warmth.
