"Deep in Given's Woods stood a tall majestic tree. A tree with branches that extended like fingers reaching to touch the world surrounding it. Green crisp leaves, as green as emeralds, dangled from the branches above. This tree meant so much to me, not for its beauty, but for the friendship it gave me."
