Hunger changes a Man’s heart and after 15 days of non stop peril and not very plentifull food everything was food for him now. Hunger also drives a man to forget one crucial thing, not all thing are edible, especially red mushrroms. Red mushrooms are poisonous and have many negative effects, one of them is rapid exaustion. “Food, food, please help…” and Steve passed out.
“C’mon you slowpoke rise and shine.” said a familiar voice. “Am I dead?” asked Steve. “No you are not. At least not yet.Stand up.” responded the man with a familiar voice. Steve stood up and looked at him ” Dad!, what are you doing here, are you sure that i am not dead.”.
Steve ran up to him and tried to hug his dad but he was hit was in the face.”What the hell dad! Why did you do that?” he yelled. “You are not worthy. What are you? A guy who was the top student in Bio tech and still works as a meager lab assistant and now is pathetically dying in the middle of nowhere!”. “You return from the dead to mock my career?If that is it let me tell you that I do my best everyday.”.”Son you are still a child, you are no Man. You lack a purpose that drives you! Be a Man! Find that which drives you. Or die here, in the middle of nowhere and be remembered as an unlucky citizen that died in the woods, the kind of person whose name gets forgotten the instant someone stops reading the newspaper”.
“To find my purpose…”
He woke up in the side of the road, his headache was 10 times worse than his worst hangover. Th smell of gas covered the air. He reached out to his pocket to call 911 but a piece of shrapnel was going right through his phone. “I guess I will just have to wait a bit. I am sure people are looking for me.” contemplated Steve until he was interrupted by the cry of a great grisly bear. The Bear was running towards him. He started runnning into the woods. But a bear is a bear and bears are faster than humans. He had only one choice, to hide near a beaver´s cove just aside the spring. The grisly lost his scent due to the water and returned into the forest.
“I guess you were wrong Dad.” Steve´s dad was a forest guard, he always believed that Bears could help humans and that we should learn from them. He was attacked by a Startled Bear that had lost one of her cubs to poachers. He used to say that someday Steve would learn from a Bear.
Steve realized after his adrenaline rush that he was completely lost in the forest. The forest had him now…
“Man tried reaching the heavens once, the great tower of Babylon was in the making, God sent a warning to him but Man’s arrogance had blinded him. God could not tolerate this endeavor and sent a punishment, every single worker that built the tower of Babylon was sentenced to have a different language than the others, thus creating all languages. Ok now it’s bed time. See you tomorrow” said Steve leaving his long asleep nephew in his room.
“Hey Martha, I am coming to the lab in 20 min.”
“You know Steve, It’s Late. You can get a good night of sleep and I can cover for you today.”
” Don’t worry I can handle It.” said Steve and cut the call on his phone.
It was a cold night in the Rockies and every cofee shop was closed at the time. Steve pushed on driving mile after mile. And Suddenly a Bear appeared in the middle of the road. He tried dodging it but hit a tree. His Airbag had activated and his head was still concious and firmly atached to his body. But the bear had run away, the fire smoking in the engine was a sign of danger even for animals. Steve crawled out of the car and layed unconcious on the freshly wet dirt.
