Chapter 2 Summary

Nhamo doesn't mind gathering firewood, even though there are dangerous animals in the woods by the village. She is most afraid of leopards, because it was a leopard that killed her mother. Nhamo was only three years old when it happened. Her father left before she was born, so she never knew him.

While she is out getting firewood, Nhamo goes to her special spot where she has some treasures buried. She takes them out, including a magazine cover. The picture on the cover depicts a mother and daughter. The mother is slicing bread for her daughter. Nhamo imagines this is what her mother looked like. She has a tea party with this imaginary mother.

Before it gets dark, she scurries home, spooking herself into thinking she sees a leopard. It turns out to be an optical illusion.
