Chapter 1

I walk down the street.There is a deep hole in the sidewalk.

I fall in. I am lost .... I am helpless.

It isn't my fault. It takes forever to find a way out.



Chapter 2


I walk down the street. There is a deep hole in the sidewalk.

I pretend that I don't see it.I fall in again.

I can't believe I am in this same place.

But, it isn't my fault.

It still takes a long time to get out.



Chapter 3


I walk down the same street.There is a deep hole in the sidewalk.

I see it is there.

I still fall in ... it's a habit ... but, my eyes are open.

I know where I am.

It is my fault.

I get out immediately.



Chapter 4


I walk down the same street.

There is a deep hole in the sidewalk.

I walk around it.



Chapter 5


I walk down another street.
