This is George and Lennie. They had to ditch their old jobs back in Weed because Lennie got into some trouble.
After hiding out, they went and found a bus stop and got on to go to their new work which will be on a ranch.
George thought the bus would take them all the way to the ranch but the driver made them get off and told them that it was just up the road a little bit. Little did they know it was 10 miles away.
George and Lennie started to walk and decided to stay the night in the woods and then the next morning they would walk to the ranch.
That night when they were getting ready to lay down, Lennie asked George to tell him the story about how they are going to own their own ranch some day soon and Lennie loves animals so when George talks about the rabbits, it's his favorite part.
The next morning George reminds Lennie that if anything happens and he gets in trouble to come here and hid in the brush and wait till he comes for him.
