Through the woods
One summer evening, Sasha was wondering what to do. Her mom suggested she go for a walk. She took Sonny, her dog, and they began to walk through the woods. Sonny lead the way deeper and deeper into the woods. Sasha didn’t mind, what else would she do? Though she had this eerie feeling something was watching her, she looked around and didn’t see anything, so she walked on.
The two friends kept walking, stopping occasionally to let Sonny have a sniff of this and that. As they did so, Sasha saw an owl, but didn’t give it a second thought. These woods were a big part of Sasha’s past. She and her father used to go on walks, until he passed away three years ago in these woods. He was stabbed, but no one knows who or what killed him.
Veering off the trail, didn’t worry Sasha. She knew these woods like the back of her hand, but once again, she had the feeling of eyes following her every move. Soon the feeling went away so she continued onwards. Their surroundings were beginning to darken. Thinking they should go home she stopped, pulling on Sonny’s leash and saying, “Lets go back.”
Just as Sasha began to turn around, she got that feeling again and this time it sent a chill down her spine. She looked back, and looking into her eyes were two big owls eyes. She laughed thinking, “It’s just an owl why am I frightened?” As this thought passed through her mind, Sonny began to bark and back away from the owl. Looking at him she said, “Calm down. It’s just an owl, there’s nothing to worry abo…” she turned back around, to find the owl flying straight at her heart.
