CHAPTER 1

COMING OUT OF HYBERNATION

JESS AND JAKE AWOKE FROM HYBERNATION. THEY FINALLY WANTED TO GIVE THEIR TWIN CUBS A LOOK AT THEIR SURROUNDINGS. JESS AND JAKE NAMED THEIR TWINS KAM AND KIM. THEY HAD AN OLDER BROTHER NAMED IKE; HE WAS IN HIS PRETEEN STAGE. THEY ALL WENT DOWN TO THE SALMON RUN AND MET UP WITH THEIR FRIENDS. THE BIGGEST BEAR WAS NAMED CLIDE AND HE IS THE OLDEST AND STRONGEST BEAR OF THE GROUP. HE HAD HIS FAMILY FISHING AND PLAYING AROUND WITH THE OTHER BEARS. JAKE WENT OVER THERE TO CLIDE AND TALKING TO HIM ABOUT HIS FAMILY LIFE. JESS TOOK THE TWINS TO THE SHALLOW END OF THE STREAM TO TEACH THE CUBS HOW TO FISH AND SWIM. IKE WAS LOOKING AROUND WHILE FISHING AND MET A GIRL NAMED ISSIE. HE WAS TALKING WITH HER AND FISHING ALL AT THE SAME TIME AND THEY BECAME FRIENDS.

JESS WAS TRAINING HER CUBS TO FISH AND SWIM AND CLIDE'S FEMALE NAMED CLEO CAME OVER TO WHERE JESS WAS AND TOLD HER THAT SHE WAS UP STREAM BEFORE WINTER STARTED AND HEARD THAT THE CHIEF OF ONE OF THE VILLAGE'S WAS VERY ILL. JESS WAS CONCERNED THAT IT COULD BE HER FATHER THAT CLEO WAS TALKING ABOUT. SO, WHEN CLEO WENT BACK OVER TO WHERE CLIDE WAS; JESS WAS LOOKING AROUND FOR JAKE AND FOUND HIM. THEY WERE TALKING ABOUT THE POSSIBILITY THAT JESS'S FATHER COULD BE VERY ILL. SO, JAKE TOLD HER TO TAKE SOME BERRIES AND FISH AND GO UPSTREAM AND FIND THE VILLAGE THAT HER FATHER IS IN AND FIND OUT FOR SURE THAT HER FATHER IS NOT ILL. SO, SHE LEFT THE CUBS IN JAKE'S CARE AND TOLD HER OLDEST SON IKE TO HELP OUT TAKING CARE OF THE CUBS WHILE SHE IS GONE. JESS LEFT AND IT WILL TAKE A COUPLE OF WEEKS FOR JESS TO GET BACK.

CHAPTER 2

VILLAGE PEOPLE

THERE WAS A NEW MAN'S VILLAGE ABOUT 5 MILES FROM THE SALMON RUN AND THE BEARS KNEW ABOUT IT. THE CHIEF OF THE VILLAGE WAS PACING OUTSIDE OF HIS SON'S TEPEE BECAUSE HIS SON'S WIFE WAS GIVING BIRTH TO TWO BABIES. WHEN THE BIRTH HAPPENED; THE CHIEF SON CAME OUT OF THE TEPEE AND TOLD HIS FATHER THAT THE BIRTH WAS A BOY AND A GIRL. THE CHIEF'S SON'S NAME WAS JOEL AND HIS WIFE'S NAME IS JADE. THE CHIEF'S NAME IS CALEB. THE CHIEF CAME INSIDE THE TEPEE AND SAW THE BABIES AND ONE OF THE BABIES LOOKED SMALLER THAN THE OTHER. HE WAS CONCERNED AND HE TALKED WITH HIS SON AND HIS SON REASSURED HIM THAT HE WILL GROW.

SIX MONTHS WENT BY AND THE TWIN BABIES ARE IN THEIR WALKING STAGE. THE BOY'S NAME IS ERIK AND THE GIRL'S NAME IS EVA.THE CHIEF KNEW SOMETHING WAS DIFFERENT ABOUT THE BOY ERIK. SO, HE TALKED WITH HIS SON JOEL AND TOLD HIM THAT HE WAS GOING TO THE SHA'MAN UP IN THE HILLS TO FIND OUT WHAT THE SPIRITS HAD IN MIND FOR THE BOY ERIK. THE CHIEF TOLD HIS SON TO WATCH THE VILLAGE WHILE HE VISITS THE SHA'MAN.

DURING THE ABSENCE OF THE CHIEF; THE FISHING WAS GETTING VERY DIM FOR THE VILLAGE PEOPLE AND THEY WERE BLAMING IT ON AN OMEN BECAUSE OF THE TWIN BOY BEING DIFFERENT FROM OTHER BABIES IN THE VILLAGE. THE BOY ERIK IS SLOWER AND WEAKER AND HIS GROWTH WAS BEING VERY SLOW. THE CHIEF'S SON JOEL WAS REALLY TRYING TO LOWER THE TENSION OF THE VILLAGE PEOPLE AND TELLING THEM TO WAIT ON THE CHIEF'S RETURN. THEY ALL AGREED TO WAIT FOR THE CHIEF TO RETURN FROM SEEING THE SHA'MAN.

CHAPTER 3

THE SHAMAN

THE CHIEF NAMED CALEB TOOK THE TWIN BOY ERIK WITH HIM TO THE SHA'MAN. IT WAS A LONG JOURNEY TO GO UP TO THE HILLS. THE CHIEF PACKED ENOUGH FOOD AND CLOTHING FOR HIM AND THE BABY. HE KEPT LOOKING AT THE BOY ERIK AND JUST COULDN'T UNDERSTAND WHY HE IS SO DIFFERENT FROM OTHER BABIES. HE SPENT A NIGHT IN A CAVE ON HIS WAY TO THE SHA'MAN AND LEFT A FIRE BURNING THROUGH THE NIGHT TO KEEP THEM WARM.

THE CHIEF WAS HAVING VISIONS WHILE HE WAS SLEEPING AND DID NOT KNOW WHAT THEY MEANT. HE WAS VERY ANXIOUS TO GET TO THE SHA'MAN; SO IT CAN BE EXPLAINED TO HIM WHAT HIS VISIONS ARE TRYING TO TELL HIM.

ONE VISION WAS SHOWING HIM A BEAR CUB AND ANOTHER VISION WAS SHOWING HIM THE EQUINOX. THE LAST VISION AWOKE THE CHIEF BECAUSE IT SHOWED HIM THE BEAR CUB AND THE BOY ERIK COMBINED AS ONE. THAT VISION SCARED THE CHIEF SOO MUCH THAT HE GATHERED HIS STUFF AND PICKED UP THE BABY FROM SLEEPING AND STARTED HIS JOURNEY AGAIN TO THE SHA'MAN.

HE GOT TO THE SHA'MAN WITHIN A HALF DAY AND THE SHA'MAN'S NAME IS CARLA. CARLA TALKED WITH THE CHIEF NAMED CALEB. SO, CARLA PERFORMED SOME CHANTING AND TOOK SOME BLOOD FROM THE BABY ERIK. THE CHIEF WAS JUST SITTING AND WATCHING. THE BABY WAS SITTING AND EATING.

CARLA TOLD CALEB THAT SHE WILL HAVE TO SPEAK TO THE SPIRITS MORE TO FIND OUT WHAT THEY HAVE PLANNED FOR THE BOY ERIK AND SHE TOLD CALEB TO GO BACK TO THE VILLAGE AND WAIT FOR HER. SHE WILL COME IN A FEW MONTHS.

CHAPER 4

THE SIBLINGS

JAKE AND IKE WAS WATCHING THE TWINS AND ONE OF THEM RAN OFF INTO THE WOODS. JAKE TOLD IKE TO GO AND FIND HIS SISTER KIM. KIM RAN IN THE WOODS AND THEN REALIZED THAT SHE COULD NOT FIND HER WAY BACK; SO SHE SMELLED THROUGH THE AIR AND SMELLED THE RIVER. SO, SHE KEPT SMELLING HER WAY TO THE RIVER AND RAN INTO A BEAVER'S DAM. SHE STARTED PLAYING ON THE DAM AND SUDDENLY SHE GOT HER HEAD STUCK IN THE DAM.

IN THE MEANTIME, IKE STARTED WALKING TOWARDS THE WOODS TO GO FIND HIS SISTER AND THE GIRL HE WAS TALKING WITH NAMED ISSIE WANTED TO GO WITH HIM TO HELP. SO, THEY LEFT TOGETHER TO FIND HIS SISTER. IKE USED HIS NOSE AND EYES FOR HIS SISTER'S TRACKS.

JAKE WAS STILL CATCHING MORE FISH FOR HIS CHILDREN. KAM WAS BESIDE HIM PLAYING IN THE WATER. KAM STARTED PLAYING MORE AND MORE DOWN THE RIVER SPLASHING THE WATER. SOON JAKE COULD NOT SEE KAM PLAYING. JAKE PUT ALL HIS FISH IN A BUSH AND WENT TO LOOK FOR KAM. KAM COULD NOT SEE HIS FATHER NO MORE. HE GOT WORRIED AND FRANTIC AND RAN INTO THE WOODS.

JAKE COULD NOT SEE KAM IN THE RIVER NO MORE. JAKE WENT TO CLIDE AND CLEO AND TOLD THEM TO LET HIS SON IKE KNOW WHEN HE GETS BACK WITH KIM THAT HE WENT LOOKING FOR KAM AND FOR THEM TO STAY PUT AT THE RIVER. JAKE STILL WORRIED ABOUT BEING A GOOD FATHER AND HOW DIFFICULT IT IS TO KEEP TRACK OF TWO CUBS. JAKE STARTED TRACKING KAM'S CUB PRINTS IN THE WOODS.

IKE AND ISSIE HEARD KIM'S CRIES AND FOUND HER AT THE BEAVER'S DAM AND WAS TRYING TO PULL HER HEAD OUT OF THE DAM. IT WAS DIFFICULT BECAUSE HER HEAD WAS BIGGER THAN HER BODY. SHE TAKES AFTER HER FATHER.

CHAPTER 5

SEPERATION

CALEB AND ERIK RETURNED TO CAMP. CALEB TOLD HIS SON WHAT THE SHA'MAN TOLD HIM. JOEL TOLD HIS FATHER ABOUT THE FISH BEING SO SLIM AND THE PEOPLE THINKING ITS AN OMEN.

THE NEXT MORNING THE VILLAGE PEOPLE STARTED ROAMING THROUGH THE FOREST TO FIND FOOD. ONE OF THE VILLAGE PEOPLE SAW ERIK TRYING TO WALK TOWARDS THE FOREST AND REDIRECTED THE BOY DEEP IN THE WOODS AND LEFT HIM THERE. HE WAS THINKING IF THE BOY LEAVES THE CAMP, THE FISH WILL COME BACK TO THE STREAM.

KAM AND ERIK SAW EACH OTHER IN THE WOODS. KAM HAD SENSES AND ERIK HAD BRAINS. EACH ONE OF THEM CAN GET THROUGH THE WOODS TOGETHER. THEY WALKED TOGETHER DEEPER AND DEEPER IN THE WOODS UNTIL THEY SAW A CAVE. AS THEY WERE WALKING ERIK WAS PICKING SOME BERRIES. WHEN THEY GOT TO THE CAVE; THEY SAT DOWN AND RESTED AND ATE SOME BERRIES.

THE SHA'MAN WAS WALKING DOWN THE MOUNTAINS AND SAW THE TWO WALKING IN THE CAVE. THE SHA'MAN STOPPED AND CHANTED A LITTLE BIT AND WAS TOLD TO START A FIRE FOR THE BOYS TO KEEP WARM DURING THE NIGHT. KAM AND ERIK GOT THEIR BELLIES FULL AND FELL ASLEEP IN THE CAVE.

THE CHIEF AND HIS SON WAS FRANTIC BECAUSE THEY COULD NOT FIND ERIK IN THE CAMP. ONE OF THE VILLAGE PEOPLE THAT LED ERIK OUT OF THE CAMP TOLD THE CHIEF WHAT HE DID AND THEN ALL OF THE VILLAGE PEOPLE STARTED TO LOOK FOR ERIK DEEP IN THE WOODS.

CARLA THE SHA'MAN TOOK A WALK WHILE THE KIDS WERE SLEEPING; SHE WENT TOWARDS THE RIVER BEND TO FIND JAKE AND TELL HIM WHAT THE SPIRITS HAD PLANNED FOR HIS BEAR CUB.

HE FOUND HIS BEAR FRIEND NAMED CLIDE AND HIS OTHER TWO CHILDREN WERE WITH HIM. IKE AND ISSIE RETURNED BACK TO THE SALMON RUN WHEN IT GOT DARK. SO, JAKE WAS TALKING WITH HIS CHILDREN KIM AND IKE AND TOLD THEM THAT HE WILL LOOK FOR KAM IN THE MORNING. ALL OF A SUDDEN CARLA WALKED UP TO JAKE AND TOLD HIM WHAT THE SPIRITS WANTED FOR KAM. JAKE AGREED TO WHAT THE SPIRITS WANTED. HE DID NOT LIKE IT TOO MUCH;BUT YOU NEVER ARGUE WITH THE SPIRITS. SO, HE TOLD THE SHA'MAN CARLA THAT HE WILL MEET HER AT THE EQUINOX TOMORROW.

CARLA THE SHA'MAN HAD TO GO TO THE MAN'S CAMP AND LET THE CHIEF KNOW OF THE PLANS THAT THE SPIRIT HAD FOR HIS GRANDSON ERIK. THE MEN IN THE CAMP STOPPED LOOKING FOR ERIK WHEN IT GOT TOO DARK. THE CHIEF STAYED UP DURING THE NIGHT BECAUSE OF HIS CONCERN FOR HIS GRANDSON. HE HEARD FOOTSTEPS COMING TOWARDS HIM AND IT WAS CARLA AND SHE TOLD HIM OF THE PLANS FOR THE BOY ERIK.
