Though he ran as fast as he could, he could not lose the bear who was now closing in on him. In his confusion, he slipped and fell on the ground. When he rolled over to pick himself up, he saw the bear right behind him, reaching for him with his left paw and getting ready to strike him with his right paw. At that moment, the science teacher cried out, "Oh God, help me!"
"Very well," said the bellowing voice and then the bright light faded away, the sounds of the forest slowly returned and the bear's right paw dropped. The bear brought both his paws together and grabbed the science teacher around the head.
The bear then bowed his head and spoke, "Lord bless this food, which I am about to receive from Thy bounty through Christ our Lord, Amen."
