Myop is an innocent girl who lives on a sharecropper farm with her mother. She usually goes exploring with her mother, but today is different.
Myop finds a new path! She follows it, full of joy and exitement.
Myop follows her usual path but reaches a new place! She stops and picks flowers, unfazed by the change.
Myop walked further into the strange woods, still unafraid. But then, she stepped into something cruntchy. She looked down at it, and it was a face! She saw a beautiful wild rose growing. She walked towards it.
Upon further examination, Myop found the remains of a rope. Myop realized that this place had been a location where a person of her own race had likely been hanged.
Myop had come to a startling realization. Her childlike innocence was broken. She laid down her flowers and the summer was over.
