Untamed ep.10

UNTAMED WRITTEN BY STEVEN JERAL HARRIS EDITED BY EMERALD BLUE OKIKI Episode 10 The Box . O n our way back, I take a closer glimpse at the stores against the main road. Everything from restaurants, pastry shops, clothing boutiques, and even hair salons, are stacked together on both sides. However, this town has a different style than others. The stores aren ’ t covered in fancy signs and bright colors like those you ’ d typically see in a city. The store faces are painted in warm, more humble colors. The signs hanging over the stores appear to be homemade. Also, almost every store has a picture of that black lion hanging in a window, but it ’ s mostly cartoonish interpretations of the animal. One would assume this character serves as some kind of gimmick for the town to lure tourist. As we travel along, I see a wooden sign hanging off a storefront.

I notice some minor differences like the room size. This room is a lot larger. Also, the window is in front of my bed. I push my wheels to move forward, and park myself in front of my bedroom window. The view is different too. Back in Virginia, my room was located on the second floor of our house. From there I could see much more of the neighborhood, but from here I can only see the house across the street. We have no trees in our new front yard, which gives me a clearer view of the full moon. ‘Like it?’ My mom asks, ‘we tried to make it look more like home.’ ‘I do,’ I reply, still looking at the m
