Yu was always a fan of climbing tall things. Once, when he was younger, he climbed to the top of his house. His all time goal was to climb the tallest tree in the nearby park closest to his house. This tree in particular was so tall that Yu couldn’t even see the top of it. He had previously tried many times to climb this extremely tall tree, but his fear of falling seemed to be the biggest thing keeping him from reaching his goal. His desire to become a better climber led Yu to find the master of climbing things in his area.
Eventually, Yu found his master and this master told him that he should start small and eventually become able to climb the tree. Yu does this, he climbs a small tree in his back yard everyday. Then he started to climb a little bit taller tree, and then a taller tree. One day he was even able to climb the tall tree in the park.
Yu walked to up to the tree and used all of what he had learned from climbing the other smaller trees. Little by little he climbed the tree, sometimes having to jump from one branch up to the next. Finally making it to the top of the tree, Yu looked around at the clouds that were now below him. It was definitely a taller tree than he had expected it to be. He wondered how he was going to get down from such a height.
Suddenly a man in a chariot rode up to Yu on the clouds. The man asked Yu what he was doing so high in the sky. Yu explained that he was wanting to climb to the top of this tree and was trying to figure out a way to get back to the ground. The man asked him why he would ever want to go back down there when he could live with the people in the clouds. This made Yu think for a second and then he told the man that he would miss his family very much if he didn’t go back to the ground.
The man asked Yu where his house was, in which Yu just told him his address. Suddenly, the man pulled out a slingshot and grabbed Yu. The next thing he remembered was waking up in his bed. Was it really all just a dream? Could people really live in the clouds?
