Prompt word: Guarded
Jenny and Josh were approaching a huge rock along the path they were hiking on. The path curved around the rock and you couldn’t see what was behind it. The path was also lined with trees which blocked their view on the sides. They had been told that mountain lions and black bears lived in the area and they wanted a clear view of the path.
The rock was considered to be the home of the guardian of the area. Did the guardian live behind it everyone wondered? Perhaps he lived on top of it. No one had been brave enough to follow the path around the back of the monstrous sized rock to find out.
Jenny and Josh weren’t far away now. Should they take the chance and try going around the rock or not? “Let’s take a break and think about it. Maybe eat something,” Josh said.
“Josh what about the smell of food? Will it bring the bears and mountain lions out to attack us?
“I didn’t think of that. I am curious about what is further along that path, but the stories that are being told aren’t good omens for it to be a good idea.”
“Josh, I can live without finding out about guardians, mountain lions and black bears. Let’s just turn around and find somewhere else to camp tonight.”
Taking one last look, they turned around and headed back along the trail to find a more open area where they could spot the enemy if there was one.
