I hear a twig snap and I quickly look around. My heart beats quickly and I breath like I’ve just ran a marathon. I see trees, creek, more trees and…well, more trees. No freakish monster or whatever would have jumped out to attack me. It was probably just a bird or something.
I get back to breathing my normal pattern and look beyond the creek. There is an old grey house I’ve never notice before. In fact, I’m sure I’ve never seen it before. It’s just on the other side of the creek. The house looks almost abandoned. I see no sign of life.
But wait, there’s someone standing on the porch of the house. They are looking past me. I focus my eyes a little bit more and see that it is a man. Well, he doesn’t look quiet that old. Almost, like he is in his twenties. I frown to myself, wondering why he is there.
His eyes slowly move toward me like he is surveying the land. But when he catches my eyes on him, he then quickly moves into the house and shuts the door.
