When faced with the option to trespass into private grounds, they go together in hope of hiding. As they walk through the woods, a beautiful majestic world of the forest is presented, where they play a game of hide and seek, until their attention is broken by the discovery of a rusty safe found in the middle of the woods. They attempt to break in and uncover a treasure !
We would expect a child to be accompanied by a parent/Legal Guardian.
