Ian enters the thick shrubbery and woods that conceal the pond. Not wanting to get wet as he searches for minnows, he pulls his shirt over his head and throws it on the grass behind him. Gazing into the water, he smiles at his reflection and notices there are two bristly heads instead of one. Turning to face his new companion, Ian begins to talk to him and is taken with his many skills. As they part ways, each of them has a new confidence and feels grateful, hoping to meet again one day. Their encounter demonstrates that self-esteem.
