A Single Shard

Was Tree-ear right to question himself about waiting for the man to round the corner before alerting him that his bag was leaking rice? Would you have done the same if you were Tree-ear?

Question for my assignment. Please answer!

The harvest would not be for many months,

The man had paused in the road and hoisted the wooden jiggeh higher on his back, shifting the cumbersome weight. As Tree-ear stared, rice began to trickle out of a hole in the straw box. The trickle thickened and became a stream. Oblivious, the man continued on his way.

Tree ear was hungry and made the best of a fortuitous situation. I comment him for his quick thinking and practicality.
