Kill it! While Michael is breaking branches, he hears the calls of his children. He puts the bug in a bag and gives it to the child.
The kid opens the bag and kills the bug with a rock. I know the way. After the fire finished, Michael and Anna ate apples and drank water. Tomorrow Anna will go to the market. She needs tools to fix the leg of the couch. When she was away, she bought some things and an orange yellow-red dog with money. When the children saw the dog, they were happy. The dog was big and sweet and barked playfully. The dog waited near the door.
He had a white bird in his mouth. Michael faced his kids. He went inside the house and read his new religious book his new book of the higher path.
