A Long Walk Home
Chapter 1: Lost
Abby’s feet crackled the dry leaves and bark that had fallen. The air smelled like water-touched fern and steamed milk. Abby sighed. Julius scrambled up a tree encased in soft, green fungus.

Julius ran down the tree, aching to run freely and scream like the monkey he was. It would be a long walk back to shelter.
It all started when Abby, at age 11, had run away from home. She knew her parents would send out a search party when Abby wouldn’t be in her bed, snugly tucked into a down comforter.
