Reason to live

Andy had been hacking a path through heavy foliage1 for most of the day. His fighter jet had hit turbulence and gone into a side-spin. He had ejected only to watch the plane cut a huge path through part of the jungle2.

He had drifted down to the jungle floor. He had nothing except a k-bar and his sidearm. No flashlight3 or fire. He had to move quickly. Strong winds4 were starting to pick up and he had no way of sheltering.

It would be easy to lose his life5 here to predators6. He could lose it to stepping in the wrong puddle too. His briefing had mentioned something about electric eels and their high voltage7 attacks.

He had to get out of here. His wife was about to have their first child8. He wasn’t religious, but said a prayer9 for safety, and then continued heading in the direction of his plane.
