Tara was lost in the wilderness. Snow beat against her tears that had fallen to the ground. In the distance, icebergs slowly cracked, plummeting into the sea. Loudly, something moaned near her. She jumped, startled, then noticed a polar bear staring at her! Not realising what she was doing, Tara leapt onto the polar bear and cuddled tightly. Instantly, the polar bear knew he'd found a friend and hugged back. Suddenly the ground jolted beneath the bear. The iceberg collapsed into the murky depths below, taking him with it. Tara was alone again. All was lost, lost in the wilderness.
