The leaves darkened as the sun dropped lower in the sky. To his left, he heard a shout of
excitement and his sister burst through the woods carrying a large birch branch, beaming
with delight. He helped her with the weight of the wood as they wedged the final piece into
place. Their little house was complete. They stood back to admire their haven in the forest,
and their dog galloped around them in excitement. A gust picked up and swept around the
clearing, causing them hug their coats tightly. The wind grew stronger and they fought to
clear their faces from their hair. Suddenly the wood trembled and their house came apart in
the wind. The braches clattered down like dominoes and settled in a mass on the forest
floor. His sister looked at him, her face grieving their loss. He knelt down and hunted
through his backpack, pulling out a small gas lamp. He lit the wick, and passed the amber
glow to his sister. She stood there, lamp in hand, as he began to pick up the pieces and
resemble their house. She put down the lamp and ran to his side to help.
