Then I yelled “Let’s just go up to where we started out at.” Will screamed “Let’s go up to the bridge and see what it’s like.” So I went back up to camp where we started out at and Will went to check out the bridge to see what it was like.

My sister and I were both shocked. After a while, Donald left to get something to eat. But, when he did, he left the door ajar.
