Children’s fantasy – ages 8 - 12
Shadows leapt at her as though they’d developed life, a hunger. They enveloped Elspeth, dragging her into their depths as though she’d been swallowed by a dark ocean. For a few seconds she couldn’t see, couldn’t breathe. And then the moonlight burst back and she found herself on her hands and knees. The shadowed squares were gone and she was on a muddy path, trees ranked thick and silent on all slides. And again, she could hear someone screaming.
