I miss Matt so much! If I share our story with you, can you promise to get us out of here?
I can't promise anything but, I will listen.
I am so hungry. Can I please go into the market?
I don't feel well. I need to rest.
No, last time I was blamed for your stealing. Just because your dad ins't here doesn't mean the rules here are gonna change!
OMG! Mom what happened to Grandma? -Aman
All of a sudden, a couple of days into the trip we spotted soldiers. Shadow was also sniffing the ground constantly and I couldn't figure out why. Then the soldiers yelled at us to hide, turns out Shadow was a war dog. The very nice officer named Sergeant Brode let us stay with him, he also paid for our travels after the smugglers took our money. But, he took Shadow (or Polly) back. In return, he gave me a star badge.
Stay away kid!
When I went down to the stream to go cry, I kept hearing sounds, but just thought it was soldiers. I then looked up to find a dog sitting near me. After that day she never stopped following me. And she always knew the right time to come by the cave I was staying in. After dark (aka, when mom was asleep) I decided to name her Shadow because she was always in my shadow.
Mother got in touch with my Uncle Mir. hey had set up a plan for us to arrive safely in England. We packed up what we could carry and headed out. Shadow followed behind me, and mother didn't mind.
