Soaked in the rain and with their camping gears pulling down their strength, a group of mountain climbers struggled through the mud to find their way home. One of them asked if the path they were tracking was the true one. The first man on the trail didn't respond. When they arrived at a certain tree, a carved sign gave them the courage to go on. But the next point was already flooded. And no more marks to expect.

When they've reached the flooded ground, it was unknowingly a desperate attempt on their part. All were tired and soaked by the unceasing downpour. It seemed a heroic display of courage and camaraderie amidst a difficult situation. Yet still they ended up in the middle of nowhere. And, for them, to find their way home they've got to fully depend on the first man in line who was also in the same embarrassing trek.

I liked this - their camping gears pulling down their strength. This would have been much better if you had lengthened the story and fleshed it out to a conclusion. I'm struggling to see what it has to do with shrewdness, the required topic for this week.

I agree with Sally here. You have this great little story going, building us up, we know the first man is someone that has to make the decision, maybe makes it wrong, but still we are left feeling he has some answer and then it ends. I would have loved to see this with a conclusion that brought shrewdness to full circle.

This is an old piece (somewhat an experiment then...hahaha). But thanks for your honest critique.
