“Not knowing what to expect, he made his way into the dark of forest.”
Jerry, was known as a man of strong nerves and when everyone was assuming little Daniel to be dead, he proposed to look into that forest.
The younger son of Bob the truck driver was missing. Every nook and cranny of the town was searched but to no avail.
So, Jerry took two men with him but on reaching at that spot, they refused to move farther and holding torch in his hand, Jerry decided to enter alone.
Deep in the woods the owls were hooting and cupping his hands, he was shouting Daniel’s name.
Suddenly, he heard someone sobbing. Moving his torch in the direction of the voice, Jerry saw the white face of Daniel. Sitting beside the tree, the kid looked frightened.
Jerry took him in his arms and rest is a history.
It’s been a long time and Daniel while narrating this tale to his son never forgets to conclude.
“Never get afraid of darkness. You must learn to take risk.”
