Unforgettable incident

Powerful Essays
The air was unusually warm and humid when Jane and I took the first step out of the jeep. Sunlight filtered through the thick forest canopy. We started our research with no clues, but as explorers, our natural instinct guided us through the monstrous overgrowth. It was as though something was calling out for us, from deep within the heart of the Amazon rainforest. Follow your intuition, as Jane, my partner had always said.

I was staring blankly at the river ahead when Jane’s pair of sharp eyes caught something. A distance away, what seems like a human figure was darting across the jungle with a net filled with fish. Without delay, Jane and I followed the man from behind, making sure we stayed out of earshot.

I was close to collapsing due to the unbearable heat and humidity when Jane let out a cry of excitement. I turned my head. Almost instantly, my overwhelming exhaustion was overtaken by indescribable joy as the tribe’s settlement came into sight. Then I felt a pair of heavy hands failing on my shoulders. I froze.

The tribe leader announced something before the crowd cheered and yelled. This is peculiar. I though. Looking at how the tribe was dressed and listening to how the leader

    An Unforgettable Incident on my way home from school :) It was a scorchingly hot day. I was my way home from school and I was perspirating heavily, beads of sweat rolling of my forehead. The usual 15 minutes walk it took for me to reach home now seemed like an eternity. The sun's unforgiving rays of light was making me in dire need of water. The trees provided little or no shade as they were few and far between. This was not unusual for a sprawling city like Kuala Lumpur, but they now proved more…

    OK, I ask you, is it my fault? Is it my fault the guy leaves his briefcase in the back seat of my cab? It's not my fault. I get a cheap hot dog at a stand down the block –– my usual lunch, and I'm still tasting it when the next guy, a business type, taps on the glass and tells me there's a briefcase on the floor and says he's not riding in the back with an unidentified briefcase. Durban is the city of paranoia these days –– like terrorists spent months plotting to blow up my cab, who would care…
