左 - Left
You come to a fork in the road. One path bends to the left past some construction.
It might be beneficial to memorize the order of the components in the story how it’s told (one, bend, construction) because it follows the stroke order of the components in the kanji (which differs from its sibling kanji, 右 (right)).
