Денисова Анастасия Сергеевна. 16 лет. Arctic. HIGH
Before I took part in the Expedition through the Arctic, I had lived by a schedule. In the Arctic you lose sense of time. Having 24 hours of sunlight we could start our hiking at what we thought was 3 PM but it was actually 3 AM.
Our entire being was focused on one thing: survival.
That day or night (I can’t say for sure) I was on polar bear watch while the others were sleeping.
I didn’t have to fall asleep so I looked outside for some fresh air and came face to face with a ...
something or somebody , I really couldnt understood exactly WHAT it was. I felt a bit scared, but very excited. So, without ane noize, I tried to more nearer to it. In the same time it starts to scream, and I suddenly realised that it was a bear. And oh God, he was in a few steps from me. I dont remember what happened after it, I thought that the time stopped at that moment. The same voise interapted my silence. I immediatly looked at the bear. It took almost a couple of minutes for me to remind what was happened. And still I cant understood why all my friends didnt wake up. Mystary. The bear looked at me with a sense of worring, it seemed that he was asking for help. I noticed he wnted to show me something. And I had no doubt that I should follow him. I swear that I never got in such situations. Even now I suppose it was just a dream, but anyway. We ( the bear and I !!) walked through my neighbours slowly and went to the cave. I heard the very known sounds, somebode was crying inside. We came in and I saw a little bear, a child of the first one. He was weeping, really weeping, I saw the tears falling from his eyes.
The reason why I was hear came to me and I began to analyse carefully what babys tears were the resuly of. Both bears were very patient. I found nothing on the bode of the child. So, I looed at his mother ( I guessed it was she ) , but the answer of my question was written on her face. They were hungry. And like me and my friends, their only purpose was to servive. You cant emagine how pleasant it was. I make some signs to show the mom that I would comw back in some minutes, I know, she got it. I run to our tents as fast as I could at that moment. Fortunatelly , there was some provision in my pockets , I took the first goods I had seen and rushed to the bears home. They were eaiting for me. I feed them both, though the mother wanted to gave all her food to her child. I spent there about 3 hours, as well. When I came back to my friend, they were looking for me, so they were happy to see me alive.
They asked me where I was and what happened. the best I could do that time was to fell asleep , so I said that probably once I would tell them this story, if they promise not to laugh at me.
