In Mark Twain’s novel The Adventures of Tom Sawyer, there is a picnic scene where Tom and Becky accidently get separated from others in the group. Later on everyone realizes that they have probably got lost. Actually, when Tom and Becky were exploring the area on the other side of the waterfall, some dangerous bats follow them and they run deeper into the cave to save their lives. After that they get trapped into that cave. In the cave, Tom looks for alternate routes to get out. They use candles to light up that dark place. And we also told that Becky even sleeps in between. Eventually however, Tom and Becky are found!
