Mafatu decides to let his fire die out because why? from the book "Call it Courage"
I find it hard to believe that this question is correct. I really do not think that Mafatu ever does let his fire die out. I say this because I do not remember any place where that happens and I cannot find it when I search one of the searchable versions online. Looking through my copy, I can't find it either.
I would also point out that he clearly says that he must not ever let it die out. You can see that right at the start of Chapter 4. I thought maybe he let it die off when he decided to go home, but he does not. Then I thought maybe he let it die when he heard the cannibals, but it does not say he did.
Message me if you have more information -- like if you have a worksheet, what is the question before this one so I can know more about where this should be found in the book.
