As they were talking and from no where a bear came to attracted them. Fortunately, Nodey saw a bear was coming and he ran away without any noticed to his brother Hodey. Nodey climbed on the tree and looked what is happening between his brother and bear. Hodey being intelligent, he did a game plan to escaped from a bear. He slept on the ground and pretended to be dead. The bear sniffed whole part of Hodey body and checking whether he is really dead. The bear checked the breathing air of Hodey to make sure he was dead. Finally, a bear went back.
