Jody did not want to scare the fawn away. That is why he
first stroked its neck slowly, and then put his arms around it. Then, he
picked it up and carried it through the thick bushes. He tried to shield
its face from the sharp vines. He stopped to rest on his way home. On
walking a little, he saw the fawn following him. After this, he would
either carry the fawn, or put it down so that it would follow him by
itself. When they reached home, it refused to climb the stairs. He then
picked it up and took it inside the house.
