One day Frightful was jabbing at some insect in the grass below. When Sam sees a flash and the photographers asked if they were eating nuts. Then Sam had refused to take him to his tree. Two other photographers came, and a reporter. Five days passed and then Sam hears: "I know you are there." Sam yells DAD! He runs down the mountain but as Sam ran he had heard the sound of branches, and twigs breaking. Sam was thinking he could run away on his raft and travel the world. Sam starts running away but than he stops because he wanted to see his dad. When Sam got there, there were Photographers and interviewers. Sam walked slowly knowing it was all over but then Sam hears his four year old brother's pleasure song. Sam said that dad had brought the family! Every one of them and then Sam yells MOM! DAD! Sam's mom had hugged Sam until she cried and than John jumped on Sam. Jim threw Sam into the rushes. Mary sat on Sam. Alice put leaves on Sam. Hank pulls Jim off. Joan pulls Sam to his feet, and then Jake bit Sam's ankle. Sam showed them the way to the tree but Sam had noticed the bag on his dad's back. Sam asked why he had his pack and his dad said he had about two days of food supplies so they can get used to living off of the land. That night Sam's mom had made fried chicken and his dad said when I told your mom where you were living she said if Sam not going to live with us than we'll came and move with him. Sam's dad said that's why we are here. So the next day Sam took John, Jim, and Hank to the mountains meadows with Frightful to get enough food for all of his family. But when Sam came back he saw piles of wood that covered a barn and then Sam said asked his dad what on earth was he trying to do. His dad said they were going to have a house and then Sam protested and asked why they couldn’t live in trees and hammocks. Sam’s dad said no. your mom said that she was going to give you a nice home and then Sam was almost at the point of tears. Sam was just about to protest in a loud voice but then Sam’s mom said that's how it is until you are eighteen. And that ended it.
