Stealthily, I crept down the stairs, dodging the fourth step in case it creaked. At the bottom, I came to a halt but all that I heard was silence. In case your wondering, I’m Tia and my adoptive parents won’t let me go to an amazing forest. Anyway back to the story, I looked around frantically, looking for an escape of some sort. Soon enough, I spotted a paper white, modern door and decided to approach it. I slowly opened the door. Outside, it was scattered with trees, bushes and different kinds of wildlife.
A couple minutes later, I found my way to Bloodway Forest. I found an opening which was covered in vines with all sorts of flowers on. I moved the vines out of the way and inside tall trees towered overhead and sunlight filtered through the branches, casting ebony shadows. At one side of the forest, was a glittering stream and a few bees buzzed busily. I sat on a patch of emerald green grass. My mind couldn’t help bring back the memory of when I first saw the dark purple, scaley dragon. Soon enough, my head switched off and I drifted of to sleep, dreaming of crystal towers, witches and wizards and dragons. Which made a little movie in my head.
Later, I woke up with a start. The sun had already set and dusk was rising. The sun has slipped behind the trees, casting charred shadows across the tangled branches. I shivered. I heard the sound of a twig snap in the distance. Someone or something was moving towards me! I squinted my eyes, there was a vague silhouette heading towards me. It was a bloodstained head, blood drooled out of the eyes and mouth. I shrieked as loud as I could.
With my dreams of dragons left behind, I ran as fast as I could. Branches whipped at my face and brambles tore at my feet. My heart thudded as I ran. I was sure I could hear something behind me. I soon came to the end of Bloodway Forest. There was a busy road in front of me, cars zoomed past, making a gust of wind slime my cheek. I looked at the forest, it was completely silent.
I ran home. Shaking all the way there, I never went there again. Until 5 years later, there was a school field trip to Bloodway Forest.
