“What time is it?” Katie asked. Ron glared annoyingly back over his shoulder. They were hiking deeper into the forest than Katie felt comfortable with and it was getting darker. “Isn’t it time for us to go back?” She thought about the animals that hunted at night and wondered if they were waking up yet. She thought she saw eyes up in trees and in shadows. Hair stood up on her neck as she felt them follow her.
Ron continued on his mission to find the stream he knew he heard just a few yards ahead. It seemed to be getting louder as he approached a clearing. They stepped into a field of clover; no stream, no trees, nothing.
“What now, fearless leader?” Katie furiously spat.
“Oh ye of little faith, follow me.” Ron turned around to go back into the forest on the same path they just came out of, but abruptly stopped.
