A Walk in the Woods

One day, Tom, a university student was walking alone in the woods eating a slice of watermelon when suddenly a bear ran out in front of him. Tom froze, the bear looked at him. Without thinking Tom threw the watermelon as far as he could to distract the bear but it only got angry so he ran like the wind. Tom was chased through the woods and he lost a shoe but he soon got to a road where luckily a garbage truck was passing and it stopped and picked him up. The bear growled and ran back into the woods.

‘What a relief! I hadn’t expected drama like that!’ Tom said to the driver as they drove away.
‘Bear that in mind the next time you go for a walk in these woods.’ the driver replied.
