“Hello,” said the old woman, not taking her eyes from the branches.

“What are you looking at?” asked the boy.

“Trouble and treasure,” she said.

“Treasure?” asked the boy.

“That wood is as valuable as gold,” she said. “But it is blocking the path of the fish, who must feed beyond it down the stream. For them it is trouble.” Then she looked at the boy for the first time. “Will you help?”

“Well, I …”

“If you do, you will have the treasure.”
