Salva is siting in class dreaming about later today. This was all a normal day until he heard the rebels shooting bullets to get there government to stop forcing them to have a certain religion. They just want to be free.
Why did you leave me?
After the rebels start to shoot the teacher tells them to go to the bush for safety and cover. Salva then quickly dashes and then starts getting scared that he will never see his family again.
Salva trys to join the mens group but the rebel tells him hes not old enough which makes him angry and even more scared that he wont see his family again.
Salva gets left by the women and kids because they think that he will slow them down. This makes him have to walk alone and figure out were to go on his own.

He thankfully eats them and then is told that he couldn't stay with her because she has to go to the next village. After being upset that he is alone again and then meets dinka people.
