Kuto was in Palau, enjoying the sun and the ocean breeze.Suddenly, he heard a loud noise. It sounded like a gunshot. Kuto’s heart raced as he looked around to see what was happening. He saw a man with a gun running towards him. The man shouted for Kuto to get down on the ground.

Kuto did as he was told and lay down on the ground, his heart pounding in his chest. He could hear the gunman coming closer and closer until he was standing right over him. The man demanded that Kuto give him all his money. When Kuto said that he didn’t have any money, the man became angry and kicked him in the ribs hard enough to knock the wind out of him.

The man then started going through Kuto’s pockets, looking for anything of value but finding nothing except for some loose change . Finally,the gunman lost patience and decided to leave empty handed . As he walked away ,he warned Kuto not to move or else he would shoot him .

Trembling ,Kutostayed where he was until long afterthe gunman had disappeared from sight before finally getting up painfully slowlynad makinghis way backto his hotel room ,his mind reelingfromthe shockof what had just happened
