One day my dad and I decided to go hiking in the Rocky Mountains, surely not knowing what lies ahead in our adventure. So I load up some gear and my dad tosses some canned essentials and water in the truck. It was quite the trip so we had to stop at a few places, it took on average 11 hours. Eventually we made it to the mountains, unfortunately it was 2 am so we had to camp in the woods and we also skipped dinner. Around 4 am I start hearing something rustling around in the pines, Although I wasn’t worried I needed to check it out. So, I got out of the tent and as soon as my feet hit the cold and damp ground a wave of fear struck through me, but I couldn’t stop. Upon arriving at the woodline I was knocked out by someone, or something. I could just barely make out the silhouette of an old man who wore ragged clothes and appeared to be holding a blunt object. I woke up in the tent the next morning quite hungry, so I went to grab some breakfast and saw that “man” again. Puzzled, I cooked breakfast and quickly scarfed it down to go figure out who or what that was. As I was leaving, my dad woke up to ask what I was doing. I told him what I was doing, he didn’t believe me, so I trotted into the woods to see a rotting apple tree. I quickly ran to it and felt the floor beneath me was flimsy and creaking. So I easily removed the apple tree and found a locked cellar-styled door. Luckily for me it was cracked and oxidized so I stomped on it twice and it busted right off. I opened the door and it revealed what had been the most inferior looking place ever, and the smell was awful.
