Beware The Woods
It was about three years ago when I witnessed an evil journey through the forest… the Stonegate forest which is the most mysterious forest in Stonegate. I was on my bed just lying there like a sack of potatoes so lazy that I couldn’t get my own body up, all I wanted was no worries at all, I’m so tired as if the sandman just poofed a magical dust on my brain which has no use but to read files (the case files are what I mean). I had to wake up cause “I’ll be late for work” I moaned. The alarm clock rang, no stop it! I said in my empty head, I remember I had my cup of water so I poured it on the clock, what was I thinking! That clock cost twenty two fifty! I was ashamed of myself so I pushed my limits, I got up, my bones were weak like peanut brittle, I wanted to stand up so I dragged myself off the bed and onto the floor, I was so tired. Shit! I cannot take this anymore, time for the big guns! I punched myself nearly knocking me out, I shouldn’t go this far. I finally got the phone call from the chief! I didn’t want to answer it so I didn’t, now I was on track, ran to the kitchen taking out a cereal box and pouring it in a cup ( now I might be crazy sometimes but you would do the same thing if you were late—would you?) I got the milk and poured it in the bowl, some milk poured on the floor but my dog licked it, thank god! So anyways I was so close to the car until my neighbor Phil distracted me with his talk about baseball, it was only a few minutes. Now I was in my Toyota feeling so confident and tapping my fingers on the wheel, the tires screeched as I drove out the driveway and into the street, my car at maximum speed! I yelled lots of things to the drivers in front of me and told them I was a cop.
