cave looks like vanilla ice cream. It feels 


cold. The walls are ice sheets. You can hear 


a snow blizzard out and taste the best Ice 




TIME: 4:00 pm on a winter day


CONFLICT: White Tiger wants to make a difference in 


his community by helping others survive in 


the wild Alaska. But Moody the Rabbit wants 


to move away some place warmer and doesn’t 


want to leave his brother behind. 




Loyalty is everything to me. And loyalty to your family and 


friends is the most important thing you can have in this 


world. Loyalty is something you give first and receive 




But you have to stay loyal to everything you believe in. I 


want a better world. I want to help other tigers survive 


in this cold world. I want to be a mentor to other animals 


like me. Not that many tigers are making it these days. I 


want to see more of them from the struggle find there 


purpose and a better way in life. Seeing animals freeze to 


death is something else. I’m getting tired of seeing it. 


I want to see more animals live and prosper. 




I need a fresh start. I want to move somewhere else to 


have a better chance at life, to find the right path and to 


find my mate. Alaska isn’t cutting it. I need some place 


warmer that will make me feel happy and feel like I made 


it. I’m not trying to freeze to death out here. This cold 


weather is no good for my fractured foot. This isn’t a 


place for raising a family. Trust me, I know. I want to 


start a family in a place that’s warmer and safer. A place 


where my kids will never have to worry about my freezing to 


death or going hungry for months. But my kids are going 


need their extended family, their Uncle Tiger. Maybe he can 


find someone out there too and settle down. Start a family 


like me and we could be neighbors. And for the first time 


in a long time live a happy life




My older brother Moody the Rabbit doesn’t like my dream 


because he thinks that the other animals will make it on 


their own just like we did. But we struggled through it. 


He wants me to move with him, away from my support. He’s 


asking me to move with him to a place where I know I won’t 


grow. I’m feeling peer pressure to do this. I don’t think 


this move will help me fulfill my dreams of helping this 


world become a better place for tigers. He thinks I should 


just focus on my own life. I can’t just abandon everything 


I started. I feel confused about if I should stay and help 


out everyone here or leave with my brother and start a new 




Having kids is important to me because I want to give them 


something I’ve never had. I want to be the father to them 


that I never had. I want to be there for them and start a 


legacy. I want to give them my last name and create a new 


and improved generation. The place where I want to move is 


too far for me to travel alone. I need my brother’s help. 


Why does he have to be so stubborn? Why can’t he just leave 


this place? Why doesn’t he trust me and listen to my 


dreams for a change?




But something in my heart is telling me to try and help 


others. I don’t want my bro to get mad at me because he is 


my life. He is the only one in this world that has always 


stayed by my side and believed in me. But now he is 


questioning my dreams? I feel let down and disappointed. He 


is my big brother. He’s supposed to support me. I don’t 


want to loose my bro. But I don’t want to give up on my 


dreams either
