“We’re walking? It’s at least five miles from here!” He cried.

“Well son, it doesn’t look like we have much of a choice,” she said and started walking along the side of the road.

“You coming?” she asked as she turned around, looking back at him.

He gently nodded his head and bent down to re-tie his shoelaces. This was going to be a long walk.
