**********Pea PodBy: Wholeman**********Well here I am, riding in another puddle jumper, over another remote jungle. Oh well, such is the life of a geologist. At least such is my life as a geologist. I'm a consultant and my clients have me going all over the world to analyze possible mining sites, for all kinds of ore.This particular client is in an especially big hurry so I'm stuck bouncing around flying through a storm to get to this remote site, it's just the pilot and I.CAARAAACKK, lightning pasted the wing off the plane and killed my pilot, a short spiral in and I expected that the insurance company would be paying my beneficiaries, when the jungle hit me in the face.**********I awoke to see a pretty, native girl looking down into my face.

Not broke, she offered.There's good news, I stated, my face still contorted in pain.Here, chew. Hurt go, she told me as she handed me a piece of tree bark.I knew from my college days that certain trees had a painkiller in the bark so I accepted the offered medication and gnawed on it a while.

What is your name?Meka, she answered, pointing to herself.Thank you Meka, for helping me, I don't know how much English she knows, but it seems to me that it's only right to thank someone for their aid, whether they understand or not. She must have understood, she smiled and blushed.I looked around the hut thinking,
