Part I

How Do YouFeel?

Everyone gets asked that question and many times. It might not always be said the same way. It might be asked as “How Are You?” or something similar, but the meaning is thesame.

And the answer should be thesame.

What should that answer be? Read on to findout.

Good orWell

Punch woke and walked outside. Squeak, his mother, was already munching on grass.

“Good morning, Mom. How are you feeling?”

“I’m good,” she said. “How areyou?”

“I’m well,” Punch said. “That’s the correct way to say it—I’mwell, notI’mgood.”

Squeak laughed. “I’m sorry, dear, but it’s good, despite what you may have heard.”

Punch turned his head and laughed. “I’m the one who’s sorry, Mom, because it’s well. I’ve got you thistime.”

“Go ask Shinobi,” Squeak said. “She knows everything.”

“Maybe I will,” Punch said. “Just to set you straight.”

“Go on,” Squeak said, “But I want you back before lunch, so you better get going. You know how Shinobi loves totalk.”

Punch munched on a few blades of grass, then he went to get Marco and Willow. He wanted company if he had to cross Dennis' field. Dennis was a wild boar, and he washuge!

Dennis

“Where do you want to go?” Marcosaid.

“To see Queen Shinobi,” Punch said. “I have an argument to settle with Mom, and she suggested we ask Shinobi.”

“If Mom said to ask Queen Shinobi, then she already knows the answer. Don’t make a fool of yourself.”

“I won’t,” Punch said. “I know I’m right.”

“Whatever you say,” Marco said. “But don’t say we didn’t warnyou.”

The Long Journey

Punch started off across the field toward the big gate. Marco and Willow followedhim.

“How are we gonna cross Dennis' field?” Marco asked. “I’m not fighting him; he’s too big. And he has those big tusks.”

“You won’t have to fight him,” Willow said. “He won’t make any trouble. Dennis isnice.”

“I hope we don’t have to fight him,” Punch said. “Let’s just go. Maybe he’s not awakeyet.”

As they walked through the field, a loud grunt came from behind a clump of trees.

“What was that?” Marco asked.
