Nya ´s job is to get water from the pond.she is 11 years old.she has to walk 8 hours to get water and she has almost made it to the pond..the water is very muddy.
Akeer gets sick.they take her to see the nurses and they eventually tell them it was from the water. Nya begins to panic.
two men pull up in a jeep to talk to Nya's uncle who is also the leader of the tribe.they talk and Nya's brother comes and Nya asks about what the men were talking about. the men were talking about water between the two trees. Nya thinks this is impossible.
they begin to clear the trees.they also busted up so rocks and made cobble stone.it won't be long until they find some sort of water.
the men that had came to see Nya's uncle begin to drill into the earth.they worked long and hard. Nya doesn't think that they will find water.she thinks since she ere her whole life so she would know.
water begins to shoot out of the ground! sadly the water isn't clean. so they must continue to to drill. Nya is no longer in disbelief.
