“And stay out of the tall grass, Jude. It’s crawling with snakes there,” Jude’s grandmother warned.

“Don’t worry, Nana,” Jude shouted, slamming the screen door shut behind him, as he ran out into the backyard.

Nana smiled with a hint of melancholy. She was proud of the way her six year old grandson was taking his loss. It was almost a year ago when his parents Nana’s son and daughter-in-law were killed in a car accident. Soon afterwards, Jude had moved from the city to live with her and Grandpa on their cattle station near Mount Archer. At first, she had been afraid that Jude would shut himself off, but the move to the country proved to be the perfect remedy. Jude had found solace in Nature.

She is my friend

As the late summer sun rose, its rays slowly filtering through the misty haze, Benedicto climbed steadily up the steep, rocky slope in the foothills just outside his village.

One, led by one of the elders, was determined to move on to better hunting grounds before the dry season came. The other camp felt it was better to wait until one of the mothers fully recovered after breaking her leg while foraging for yams.

Part 4 in the Helena Series


After enjoying the view at the bayou, Helena and Marlon walked back to the gardens of the grand old house. There they stood beside Grandma’s oak again.

In doing so, they soon noticed how powerful the oak was even at a distance. It filled them with a sense of calm.
