The days went on as usual after rejecting the offer offered by the anonymous voice in her dream. Her mother told her to go to the town to beg for food and bring it to home and cook it for me as our house do not have any more supply of food left in our home. "Yes mother" said Rosenda. Rosenda begin to pack some stone one the way in case she got lost in the woods and she will able to find the way back to home through woods from the city.

After walking several days in the woods, she have reach the city at last.
She begin to wonder the city and find a place to beg for food. Hours later pass by, she did not receive any coins more over food. It is almost dawn, she is sad. She have to think of a way to get food or else her mother will throw her out of her house. She decide to visit all of the shops and houses in the city has. She begins to visit the first building she sees and knock on their door. After the owner of the building opens the door, she begin to ask " Hello, kind Mister and Mrs. can I work here? I can do anything you need me to do. Wash plate, tidy the house or even feed the animals. Please let me work here." After hearing Rosenda said so, they close the door in front of her face. So Rosenda visit other shops and houses but failed. Some houses and shops have not listen finished Rosenda about to say have close the door. Some even close the door right after seeing Rosenda on the door. After quite some time, the last resort which is a house with hope and disappointed at the same time, she give this house a final hope and she prayed to god that she will get the job. She then give it a one last try and knock on the door. A kind hearted man come to answer the door, he open and sees Rosenda. Rosenda begin to say like what she had said at any shops and houses.
