Carrie laughed as she ran ahead of the group. She’d been warned to stay with tour but she hadn’t been listening. She never listened.
Just as she was out of sight a giant stepped out onto the path. Carrie ran into his big toe.
The giant squatted to get a better look then picked her up. “You’ll make a yummy snack.”
She screamed as the giant put her in his shirt pocket. No one heard her as the giant continued on his way. Carrie was never seen again.
Moral: Listen to your tour guide.
