“Deep in the heart of the woods..” On a cold and rainy summer’s eve the young careless ari ventured out of what she thought was a safe place to finally call ‘home’ but she soon figured out the truth when after she knew she could not bare the cold and hatred she had towards her sinister caretakers. Deep within the thick timberlane ari continued to venture on despite being cold, exhausted, and even betrayed from all the lies and the abuse she had to endure for oh so long. Ari couldn’t figure out why she was the monster or why she was being tormented the way she was but, one thing was clear she knew deep within her soul that even the pain was to much for her to bare she would have to suck it up and continue to move forward just to find a place till either the storm passed through or her family changed. It’d never change though and that was gut-wrenching for any 17 year old to deal with. As ari was walking she spotted an underbrush that was covered with thorns and as her hands gently ruffled the underbrush it would begin to move right in front of her eyes and suddenly it vanished into thin air revealing a crimson castle but showed that it was pleasing and stylish in many different ways. Ari was intrigued and rather curious as she gently walked along a path that was made entirely out of candy canes and gum-balls.  Ari thought she was safe and secure when all of a sudden the castle door bursted open and there standing at approximately 100ft tall was a not so pleasant giant who wasn’t in the happiest of moods. ‘The giant scruffed and gently put his hand to his chin as he gently rubbed his face in deep thought pondering and pondering. Hm’ I had something I had to take care of but I can’t seem to remember what I had to do today. Just as the giant was about to shut the door ari with no hesitation ran as quick as she could and made it inside the giant’s castle hearing the door slam shut and lock. Ari wasn’t sure of where she could hide to make sure she would be safe so that the giant wouldn’t find her but it wasn’t all that easy to do so considering the castle was like a maze and ari was to small there’s nowhere she could go or hide without being found easily it was like a game but the sad part was it was a very, very dangerous game especially being in the presence and being in someone else’s home without being welcomed or invited. When the coast was finally clear and all seemed to be calm ari gently dropped her satchel and her boots near an empty coke can and gently tip-toed around to see if there would be any place for her to sleep till she had enough energy to escape. But what she didn’t realize is the giant wasn’t the only ‘living’ creature in the castle, there were spiders that stretched with long gooey webs that could suffocate any human being. Then, there was a monkey with a blue and red sparkling hat and it was a tiny monkey and it’s name was cheebo. I fell in love with the monkey instantaneously it was so fluffy and friendly but it was loud and obnoxious. But just as she was going to head back to where her stuff was it was completely gone. No trace of it whatsoever, she was confused and she began to panic when the giant kneeled down ever so gently just to see squinting his eyes and trying desperately to examine what exactly he was staring at. ‘Show yourself creature’ no harm will come to you show yourself’ this is insane i’m apparently going blind or hearing voices once again i’m definitely going to have to call my therapist just to make sure i’m not going insane. Hey you “look over here!” Ari exclaimed as she waved her hands up and down trying to get the giant’s attention but, it didn’t work as easily as she planned and the giant ended up standing at his full stature and walking into his kitchen where the sounds of his feet left behind an echo and dead silence afterwards. Ari crawled under one of the kitchen doors and the aroma of food wafted to her nostrils and her mouth watered as well with sweets, bagels anything you could think of was at her fingertips or at least on the table. Ari made her way to the table and started to climb trying her best to reach the endless buffet of food. Just as she breathed a small sigh of relief she noticed a white plate and a tall glass eye-balling her in the face. Ari knew she had to think and be smart with whatever decision she made. Just then the giant walked in with a large fork, spoons, a bowl, and the plate covered with food. He sat down but then got up once again and left the room. Ari knew this was her chance to get the food and she didn’t hesitate one bit so she ran for the plate of food but just before she could use her hands to chow into the food the giant came back and she wasn’t safe anymore. She hid behind the giants sandwich seeing that the sandwich wasn’t completely covered yet she sighed another sigh of relief but that sigh was short-lived because she managed to fall onto the bottom of the sandwich and the giant covered the top with another slice of bread not even knowing that ari was caught. The giant picked up the sandwich with his two muscular hands as he lifted it to his mouth and began to savor every last bite. No!. No! Wait, please don’t eat me!. ‘Ari begged and pleaded as she looked at the giant with her eyes wide and her body trembling with fear. The giant gently put the girl down on the table as he sat back in his chair comfortably and was rather confused. ‘How did you get here little girl.?’ Are you a spy.?’ Who sent you here.?’ The giant then ended up pounding on the table demanding answers and Ari tried to speak but she was much to small for the giant to hear a word she was saying. The giant was knowing this was pointless but he grabbed the girl and held her up to his ear as he spoke softly to reassure her that he was in no threat to harm her. ‘Listen here child, you mean me no harm so what makes you assume that I won’t do anything… ‘Purposeful to harm you. The giant snarled and growled as he held her tightly squeezing. Ari gently looked at the giant calmly and as she spoke the words slowly came out. ‘Listen, I don’t want to harm you I  just want to find a way out of here that’s all I want to do.
