He shoved the pistol in his belt and grabbed the boy by the hand and he dragged the cart through the trees and tilted it over where it would not so easily be seen. The boy was frozen with fear. He pulled him to him. It's all right, he said. We have to run. Dont look back. Come on. He slung their knapsacks over his shoulder and they tore through the crumbling bracken.
He dug a tunnel under one of the fallen trees, scooping away the snow with his arms, his frozen hands clawed inside his sleeves. They dragged in their bedding and the tarp and after a while they slept again for all the bitter cold. When day broke he pushed his way out of their den, the tarp heavy with snow. He stood and looked about. It had stopped snowing and the cedar trees lay about in hillocks of snow and broken limbs and a few standing trunks that stood stripped and burntlooking in that graying landscape.
It was harder going even than he would have guessed. In an hour they'd made perhaps a mile. He stopped and looked back at the boy. The boy stopped and waited. You think we're going to die, dont you? I dont know. We're not going to die. Okay. But you dont believe me. I dont know. Why do you think we're going to die? I dont know. Stop saying I dont know. Okay. Why do you think we're going to die? We dont have anything to eat. We'll find something. Okay. How long do you think people can go without food?
