After a long day, I went into my bedroom and as soon as I hit the bed I was all snores, but to my surprise when I woke up to some disturbing sounds I was lying on a straw bed. When I looked around I noticed I was not in my room! I saw many weirdos with large hair, big beards and animal skin wrapped around them. Who wears animals skin over fashionable clothes in this era? Or wait! Was I in a different place, was I in a costume party, or even worse was I in another era?

I searched my pocket for something useful and I found my phone. I took a sigh of relief and thought I could call someone for help but what do I see? There was no signal. The tribals were doing some work and I thought they wouldn't see me. I started jumping on the straw bed for signal. It was then that the tribal caught sight of me.


They caught hold of me and put me in a cage. They started to examine me like I was an alien. They found my phone and took it away. My last ray of hope was gone. My stomach started calling to me.

I was starving and wanted to eat some food. I asked them for some but, they didn't understand me. I was disgusted when I saw them eating raw meat and bugs and I suddenly wasn't hungry anymore. After completing their icky meal they went to the forest and dragged me with them. They were hunting deer. I hated when people hunted animals. So, I shouted scaring the deer away. The tribals were giving me the glares because I had scared their prey away. A chill ran through my spine. As soon as we reached they didn't lock me again.


I thought I was free! But, could my day be much better. They caught hold of me and gave me to two other weirdos. They held me and took me to a river which was being guarded by a tigress. " Are they making me a tigress's dinner? " I thought. The wierdos were speaking in a different and totally weird language just like them. Then they started talking in sign language. After a while, I understood that I had to get water. It was just like dumb charades.


Then, I remembered what I learnt in school about how animals are scared of fire. I checked my pockets for something I could use to light the fire, maybe like a matchbox, but I was out of luck. Then I recalled my teacher telling me that we can make fire with 2 stones and hay. It was time to test my skills. I found the stones and hay and started rubbing the stones. I rubbed for a long time but had no luck. After a while there was a spark.... a Hope. As soon as I left it in the hay it caught fire. I understood the concept after doing it practically!


As soon as I was taking the fire towards the tigress the fire blew out! The tigress got angry and started to chase me. I ran as fast as I could till I lost her. My running classes sure paid off! I made the fire again but this time I protected it with my hand from the air. The tigress ran away. 

Then, I filled four pails of water and handed 1 to each of them and I held 2. I got to know that the tribals were really dumb. So, I tricked them and ran away. My stomach started growling at me when I came across a lion. 


I freaked out and thought it would be best if I stayed with the tribals. It turned out the lion was pretty friendly. He let me sit on his back and took me to a very good place with shelter and water to stay for the night. There again I find a straw bed. I got tired from running and slept on a straw bed. " Rrrrrrrringg, Rrrrrrrringg ", I heard the ringing noise and woke up from my deep sleep. I found my phone ringing. I was glad I woke up from a so-called real nightmare.
