Description Baker Sipapu 26 would prove to him that his adventure had been real, that he was not the victim of fancy. Suddenly he remembered, and started to tear at the blanket and strap around his chest. "Wait up! What's your problem?" Jim reached over and jerked the velcrum strap loose and helped him loosen the blanket. Bob reached into his shirt pocket, and withdrew the sacred spear point. Jim exclaimed at its perfection and held out his hand to take it. Bob's hand clenched around it and he refused to let it go. Instead, he thrust his hand deep into the blanket and against his leg, so that if his hand relaxed, the spear point could not fall out and be lost. Before Jim could protest, Jimbo appeared at his side. "Hello, Uncle Bob. You don't look so good." "Jimbo, don't bother Uncle Bob," his father said. "He is awfully sick, and can't play." "Hello, Jimbo," Bob managed. "Where did you come from?" "Down that crack in the ledge from the ridge," the boy answered. "The 'copter will be right down." "OK," his father waved the boy off. "Go somewhere and play until it gets here." The boy took off up the cave on his imaginary cavorting mustang. Presently he gave a yell, and came running back down.
