I wake up in nothing but darkness and sweat. It was another bas dream.
The same one over and over again. I'm being chased in the woods by some
monster. Not really a monster, a woman who seems like a monster.
She is fast and vicious, wanting to kill me. I try to get away but she's faster
then me. I always wake from my dreams remembering thoses sleek, black cat eyes
of hers. Probably not remembering, but more like feeling haunted by them. It would
be my biggest nightmare for this dream to come to life...my biggest.
I sit up and reach for the light on my bedside table next to my bee.
"What?", I whisper to myself. It's not there. The light, it isn't there, neither is
my bedside table, I cannot feel it. Not only that, I'm not in my bed. I'm so confused
and I still can't see anything because it's so dark. I try to open my ears to the sounds
around me. I hear the wind blowing, better yet I can feel it on my face, a cold heavy breeze.
I start to hear crickets all around me. I pull all my attention to what I'm sitting on. My hands
touch the ground where I feel leaves. Dozonds of leaves and sticks...
My eyes go wide as I realise something. Oh no, this can't be, this really can't be.
I'm in the woods. But how could I have gotten here? How?
My heart starts to race and my whole body starts to shake. Someone brought me here.
And that someone couldn't be just anyone...
