Life in the Woods

 

In the beginning this girl lost her dad in the war, and her mom was having trouble raising her and her little brother as a widow! 2 years went by, the little boy was 7 now and the girl was 14. She still misses her dad. The girl went out to check the mail at 2:00pm. The girl ran inside with a letter that came in the mail, she showed it to her mom, when her mom read it, she began to cry because, the letter said: "You have to move out of your home due to construction, the job will take about 1 year to do. Sorry for the bad news but, it's what the state wants". The family only had 5 days to pack their things and move out. The 5th and final day came, and they had to move out, but the sad part is that they had no where to go. The litte boy asked his mom "What about life in the woods?" His mom replyed "If thats what it takes to live". The girl was confused because she lost her dad now she just lost her house. The family was in trouble, but the good thing is that all of them knew that their dad was watching over them. So, the time came that they had to find a safe place in the woods to live. 2 days past the  kids were ok but, their mom was not doing the best, but, there was no one to help, so the kids took it upon them-selves. So, 1 year went past and the kids woke up, but mom was not up yet, he little boy got worried, the kids just let her sleep for a little longer, it was 2:00 in the after-noon. Their mom would not wake up still. The girl found this note on her night stand right beside her bed and the note said: "Dear kids, I know you lost your dad in the war, but I have not been in the best health latley. Last night your dad called down to me and asked me to join him in heaven. I love you both so much, please take care of each other for mom and dad". So, the girl and her little brother were alone in the woods, but the same night someone was walking and seen them two just sitting there so she asked them if they are both ok, they said yea! The little boy was confused so he asked the lady , "How did you find us?" The lady replyed "well, I spotted a signal". The girl asked her little brother if he put out the signal, but he said "no", and right away they both knew that mom and dad set out the signal to just make sure that they both were ok and had a great home. In the end both kids grew up and they still had there parents by their side.
