Meng gestured from the ragged boy toward the place in the hills where the  incline began to rise sharply.
“A boy, Mother, look! He comes from the mountains.”
The family peered into the distance watching the approaching figure. “He  is a starving youth,” her mother stated. “When he arrives, bring him inside and  ask if he has eaten.”
