Head to Sonya’s for more TLTs

As he watched the big vehicle cross the threshold of the forest he grew up in, tears welled up in his eyes. The open skies shone down on him for the first time in nine years, making him feel so much more exposed than the dark forests.

From the driver’s seat, the farmer nudged the intimidated child and started to imitate all the animals that he could, getting a watery laugh in return.

You could take the child out of the forest but not the forest out of the child.
