Esh: Yes my dear ele we will take care and stay out of trouble.

After walking for one hour they reach the lake …. Chiu Tal dives into the water and starts to swim…she calls Eshu to join.

Eshu first carefully watches the lake waters and the shore for any signs of crocodiles and other wild animals near the lake and then jumps in the cold water of the lake. Both the friends play in the water untill the sun comes over thier head and starts to shine brightly.

The two friends decide to call it a day and get out of the water. They both sit on the shore of the lake eating the bananas given to them by the strong Ele…..

Esh: Hey look there is small boat there!!!

Chiu: Cheerful and excited as ever shouts out … Wow !!!!let’s take the boat and go to the other side of the lake yeah!!!! I have never gone on the other side of the lake.

Esh: Chiu wild animals live on the other side of the lake we are forbidden to go on the otherside of the lake. My Pa will shout at me… Let’s not go there…

Chiu gets angry and tells Eshu I will go alone if you are not coming with me.

Esh: Ok if you want to go ahead you go. I will wait for you here come back soon..

Chiu: Making a angry face fly’s away to the other side.

Eshu finds a nice big great banyan tree near the lake and sits under the shade observing the ripples forming on the surface of the water formed by the gentle cold breeze and waves making sweet soft noise of crashing on the shore. Looking at the dense green line of forest trees standing across the lake and the mighty snow clad mountains standing faraway in the background. Observing the beautiful nature she drift away in nice afternoon sleep…..

Sound of Birds chirping on the tree… Eshu wakes ohh she thinks where is my friend Chui Tai it’s must have been a couple of hours…. She became worried and tears rolled up her eyes!!!! She started running towards her home. Reaching home she find the door open, she pushes her way and and sees her Pa sitting next to the fire place. She leaps on him from behind and starts crying

Pa : Hey bebu what’s the matter dear why are you crying what happened to my brave girl. Who never cries…

Esh: Chiu Tai is lost in the dense forest across the lake..

Pa: Ohh Did you guys crossed over the lake ???

Pa: Lets take the boat across the lake monkey and Eshu sit in the boat Ele say I will wait for you here… And they all row the boat across the lake the evening sky was turning orange as the snow clad peaks were also turning orange with the setting evening sun. And the forest across the lake was turning darker and darker as their boat came closer to the shore.

Eshu was astonished and amazed to see such tall and huge trees… The trees had huge trunk so big that one whole elephant could make a home for himself inside the trunk of these trees. The top of the trees were just not visible from the forest floor . The trees were so densely packed that one could not differentiate which branch belonged to which tree.

Pa: We have day light for one more hour common let’s go find Chiu Tai, carry a wooden branch to ward off any wild animal… Stay alert and stay together. Don’t be scared.

They all start to walk under the huge trees calling for Chiu Tai… After Half hour walk inside the jungle there was no sign of Chiu Tai… Eshu slowly starts to sob feeling worried for her friend. Then the monkey says you guys wait here I will just climb this tree and check for Chiu Tai… As the monkey starts climbing Pa again shouts ” Chiu Tai we are here to get you home where are you”

Chiu Tai is hiding in one of the foliage as monkey gets near her she shouts I am here help me!!!!!!.

Monkey gets Chiu Tai on his shoulder and brings here down. Chiu Tai sobbing hard fly’s towards Eshu and sits in her palms. Says sorry I should had listened to you I got so scared seen this dark jungle I lost my strength to fly back across the lake..!!!
