Sayuru is a junior scout.

He is a little lazier than the others.

The junior scouts enjoyed their stay at Sinharaja.

The day after they reached there Sayuru went missing.

The scout master and Tarun looked for him everywhere.

They couldn’t find him.

Master, Tarun and the scouts panicked.

Master called the area forest officer.

The officer sent two junior officers to accompany the master to the forest.

As they were about to leave a young scout shouted.

“Here is Sayuru”

The scout was pointing at the back of a scout’s tent at the far corner.

All ran towards the tent.

There Sayuru was fast asleep on the grass behind the tent.

Everyone heaved a sigh of relief.

“He is having a good nap” Master said with his hands on his hips.

“Here we were panic-stricken” he added.

Tarun felt bad.

It was he who checked that area.

“I forgot to look behind the tent” Tarun reminded.

“It was my mistake” he admitted.

“Anyhow we found the boy” the master said patting on Tarun’s shoulder.


What alarmed the scout master, Tarun and junior scouts?

Where did they find the boy?

What made Tarun feel bad?
