“Do you know where we’re going?” Salva asked.

Marial titled his head up and put his hand on his brow to shade his eyes from the rising sun. “East,” he said wisely. “We are walking to the morning sun.”

Salva rolled his eyes. “I know we’re going east,” he said. “Anyone could tell that. But where in the East?”

Marial thought for a moment. “Ethiopia,” he said. “East of Sudan is Ethiopia.”

Salva stopped walking. “Ethopia? That is another country! We can’t walk all the way there.”

“We are walking east,” Marial said firmly. “Ethiopia is east.”

I can’t go to another country, Salva thought…

Why do you think Salva doesn’t want to go to another country? Think of five reasons why. One has been done for you:
