  • He was dreaming the same thing heโ€™d dreamed for the past few nights.

  • In it, he and several children were trying to find their home village, the Place of River Turtles.

  • It was a place of peace and safety, and he had to get the children there at all costs.

  • Their very survival depended on it.

  • As the dream continued, he could see the village in the distance, but by the time he reached the spot, the village had mysteriously moved.

    It reappeared in the distance, and so he headed for it.

  • Again, it moved to a new spot.

  • And this happened over and over again.

    Then he heard a muffled voice coming from somewhere nearby.

  • It sounded a little like his cousin, Kilik, talking as if he was under water or something.

  • With a jerk, Tuhuy jolted awake.
