Stories From Kiribati

One fine, sunny and beautiful day, I decided to go for a walk. I quickly ran back to my house and got myself ready.
I put on my hat then grabbed other things I would need for a walk. I started walking on a long field where planes used to land on. It was a long straight field - about 400 meters or more. I just kept on walking until I came to its halfway. Then I started running slowly so that I could reach the other end and rest my legs which were now feeling fatigue. My heart started to beat fast. I felt like wanting to drink all the water that existed on earth. I felt this way because I was thirsty and the sun was getting hot and was using up my energy. I wanted to stop but my mind just didn’t want to. My mind wanted to come to the finish line so I kept on running without stopping. When I finally came to the end of the field I felt happy but what I needed now was water. Water was the only thing I forgot to bring with me.
I rested for some time and then I started heading home. But this time I did not walk on field, instead I walked on the road where cars, buses and other vehicles ran on.
As I walked on the road I was a little scared because I knew that road accidents had killed many children. But as I still walked along I saw a piece of yellow paper lying at the side of the road. I quickly ran to it and there my eyes opened widely when I saw that it was a $50 note.
