The Calling

I run through the forest, weaving through trees and jumping over fallen logs. I can feel my heart pounding against my chest. Run, run, run, my instincts scream at me.

They can’t find. I won’t let them. I will not be a prisoner again.

Once I think I lost them, I come to a stop. I look around and see trees as tall as mountains and leaves of every shade of red. I hear the sound of water so I follow the sound.  As I walk, I hear the leaves crunch beneath my feet. I finally see a small stream so I kneel down to wash the dirt from my hands.


I hear the sound a twig break behind me. I spin around just to find an elk about the size of a small van staring at me. Time stops and the forest fades away as I look into the elk’s big, brown eyes.

One, two, three seconds pass by.

The elk’s ears twitch slightly and then it suddenly turns and leaps away. I release the breath I didn’t realize I was holding. I then feel something sharp against my throat and I struggle to breathe.

“Found you,” a deep voice whispers into my ear.

    After I read your post I was AMAZED! The amount of detail you put into the setting was incredible. I even got a little scared at the end when the person found her. I showed your post to my friends and they also agreed that it was really good. Has anything happened like this to you before? I would like to know more about what happened to her.

      Thanks! No, nothing like this has ever happened to me before. I haven’t really come to a conclusion of what is going to happen to her, but she is going to live and escape somehow.
