Write a story that includes the words motel, billboard, and map. From my hotel room window, I see an oversized billboard with his face on it: Jason, the Great Magician. I absent-mindedly turn the pages of the phone book and come across a city map.
Not more than a half-hour walk. I glance at the clock. The show starts in one hour. The billboard looks even more impressive from outside.
I shiver and walk faster. I feel like a child about to open her birthday presents. The hall is dark when I come in; the show is about to begin.
I make my way backstage just as the great magician puts on his top hat. I settle down in the darkness, and the curtains open.
Write a story that includes the words sunscreen, camera, and tourist. He really did look like a tourist, with a camera around his neck and a bottle of sunscreen sticking out of his tote bag. The portly man sat on the terrace, sipping lemonade and pretending to look at a glossy cruise brochure.
As I brought him his clam chowder, he coughed up a "thank you" and looked at me briefly. I tried not to stare at the tiny scar across his left eyebrow. I walked back inside with my empty tray, shaking my head.
Then it hit me. The mysterious stranger who helped me out of my smashed car, just before it exploded.This adventure was simply a brush against a sure death but our courage, fearlessness, and comraderie and, above all, the jungle sense kept us alive.
We came to know that this was called Topo Island. I would call the whole adventure a Jungle Ordeal.
