  • By Doris Lessing

  • Setting: a beach where Jerry goes on vacation.
  • Characters: Jerry, Jerry's mother, and the local boys
  • Jerry finds the tunnel hole and tries to go through, but he only gets in waist deep. He decides he has to train himself to hold his breath long enough to go through the tunnel.
  • Jerry holds his breath longer and longer everyday. He also gets goggles so he can see the tunnel better. He decides he will make it through the tunnel before he goes home from vacation in a few days.
  • Jerry goes through the tunnel and has to hold his breath for about 2 minutes. He almost goes unconscious and thinks he is going to die.
  • Jerry finally gets through the tunnel and swims up to shore.
