The sun was setting in Cameroon, and Kuto was getting ready for bed. He had been living here for six months, and he loved it. The people were friendly and the food was delicious. But every night, as he crawled into his mosquito net-covered bed, he couldn’t help but miss his home in America.
Tonight, as Kuto settled down to sleep, he heard a noise outside his window. It sounded like someone was trying to climb up the side of the house. He sat up silently in bed and listened intently. Sure enough, there it was again; someone definitely climbing up the wall outside his window!
Kuto’s heart started pounding in his chest as he realized that there might be an intruder about to break into his room! He quickly grabbed a flashlight from under his pillow and shone it out the window just in time to see a black-clad figure disappearing over the top of the wall surrounding his property!
He leapt out of bed and ran to the front door, flinging it open just in time to see a shadowy figure running away down the street! Kuto raced after him through winding streets until finally cornering him in an alleyway between two houses. As he shone his flashlight on the man’s face, he saw that it wasn’t a man at all; it was a monkey wearing a black beanie hat!
