23. Into The Trees

All this thinking has me tired. George and Billy have gone off, and I feel like exploring. I put the crystal down, and go into the trees onto the other side of the lake. I wonder what I will find. I firstly bump into an apple tree, one falls off and I catch it, I rub it against my shirt and take a bite. The juiciness. Oh the juiciness. I savour the first bite, and then dig into it. I walk past some trees... and then find myself face to face with a lion. I swallow the piece that is in my throat and freeze to the spot in fear.

“There is nothing to be afraid of” the lion says in a deep voice, he sounds quite old. “I am Aran, the oldest of the lions, and I have wanted to talk to you for quite some time now”
