A Long Walk To Water By: Linda Sue Park (chapter 7)
Southern Sudan, 2008 Nya reached out to her sister Akeer hand but, she didn't notice at all.Nya's sister, Akeer also did not have a lot of strength to complain about pain in her stomach.
Southern Sudan, 1985 The walking begin again. Salva shook with terror inside and out. He clung to uncle like boy, a little boy, hanging on to his hand or shirttail when he could, never letting uncle get father than an arm's length away. He looked around constantly: Every movement in the grass was a lion stalking, every stillness a lion waiting to spring. Marial was gone- vanished in the night. He would never have wandered away from the group on his own. His disappearance could mean only one thing. Loin.
Salva's uncle he asked her if she had a boat. Salva knew that he was kidding with her, but then he said that you better know how to swim. He felt tired of worrying about his family, tired of walking and not knowing where they are going. He said to salva "You'll see. We have a lot of work to do."
