I remember the day like it was just yesterday. The night was cold, there is never any people in the forest. Legend has it that tribes used to do ceremonies in that very place. The caves are full of surprises and many creatures that can kill you in one bite. Ritidian beach was close by and only tourist have ever touched the sand. None of the townsfolk are even allowed to go close by it. But there’s a reason my friends have never forgot my name Jack. I'm the biggest daredevil Guam is ever going to see.


First,I needed to figure out a way to get of my house. So then I tell my parents I'm going to my friends house. Then I need to make sure I'm not being followed. I get so close to the forest until this guard catches me. I start to dash as fast as I can and then I finally lose him. But then I realized I’m lost in the forest.


After walking into the forest to try and find the nearest cave because of the nearby storm, I get tired. Then this pig comes over to attack me. I prepare for impact but the pig comes to cuddle up onto my lap. I sat there for a long time and decided to call him Rueben after one of my favorite sandwiches. I getting attacked by the  butterflies and spiders keep going in my face so I decide to run.The pig snorted as loud as it could and I noticed the cave.


It has been five hours but nothing has happened. I felt like I should just go find my way home by memory. But before I could Reuben ran as quick as he could into the cave. I couldn’t find him but I saw these weird pictographs. I decided to touch one and I this guy tells me you're under arrest. I didn’t understand why he wanted me to be cuffed. But before I could ask I went into the car and went to the police station.


I saw my parents and they looked very disappointed in me. Not for touching the pictograph but for sneaking out of the house without their permission. I wanted to tell them that it was for a school project but it was pretty obvious they weren’t going to believe me. I tell them I’m sorry but my dad gets even grumpier.


I go home and I was grounded from leaving the house until I was 16. My dad then came in my room and slapped me in the face. I decided to go to sleep for the night. Then the pig from earlier found me and started scratching the window in the middle of the night. I opened the window and let him in. I kept doing this for a month until Rueben brought me a skull. I tried to give it back to him but he kept pushing it into my room. I opened my drawer and put the skull in there and locked it. I tried to keep it a secret until I was an elder.But when I turned 17 my parents wanted to grab one of my old photos to show to their friends that were visiting. One of the friends called the police and I was convicted of murder because I had no evidence to prove that I’m not guilty. 3 years later I’m able to come out because the dna was from somebody who died 200 years ago. I am now able to start my new life knowing that it will be fine. Moral of the story, listen to what your parents say.
