2. Chapter 2

As I was saying, I walked down that small dirt path. I wasn't much of a person to get scared. So of course going down that path didn't faze me much. Okay, I won't lie.. I was a little creeped out. But like I said, I was curious and quite stubborn. I had never been here before so it was new to me and it sent a new wave of relaxation over my body. It was a little deserted place. There were no houses and it was very quiet. Much too quiet. There were no birds chirping. There were no sound of the scurrying of animals. There was nothing. Which I should have found odd, but I didn't. I just kept walking like it was no big deal. Like nothing would happen. And sometimes I think back and wonder if things would have been different if I took someone with me. If I wouldn't have gone alone. Or if I hadn't walked down that pathway. If I would have known that walking down that path would cause me to never see my parents or friends again, then by all means I would have kept my distance. Okay, probably not, but it still would have been nice to know. And I know what you're thinking. That I must be really damn stupid. And I was. I was naive and I never really could do anything about that. I tried to change, I really did. But I guess you can't change someones personality after them being like that for seventeen years. But as of now, as I speak to you, I am 19. Yes it has been two years since it happened. Since that inevitable thing ruined my oh so perfect life. I've learned a lot since then. I still have my old ways, but I grew up. Kinda late if you ask me. But there's nothing I can do about that now. My life has already been crumpled like a piece of paper. I couldn't change the course of fate. No one can. It's just something you have to deal with as you live life. It was now getting dark out. The sky was fading from porcelain blue to a gorgeous orange-scarlet with stains of roseate pinks and purples. Usually I would go home when the fire-orange sun set. I usually wouldn't stay out after dark and I knew I would be in trouble if I got home late. But for some reason I couldn't turn around. I couldn't bring myself to just turn around and walk back. I just kept walking like something was pulling me in, coaxing me, luring me. And of course being the 'smart' person I was, I didn't think there was anything odd. I looked up at the sky, noticing that the sky had now turned to a navy blue. I could see a few fluffy clouds in the sky. There were more stars than usual and there was a full moon.  The enticing moon cast its beams of light upon the pathway, lighting my way. It was quite bright outside tonight. I could see my surroundings. I could only see about six meters ahead of me, but it was still pretty bright. I pulled my beanie down more over my blonde wavy hair. I shivered slightly, causing me to tug on the sleeves of my sweater. I swear it was about 13 degrees Celsius. I was absolutely and utterly freezing to death out here but I still didn't go back. I kept walking into the night. I wished that I was at home under the safety of my warm blankets. But still I kept on. Walking and waling and walking. My nose was beginning to turn numb as were my hands, but that still didn't stop me. I pulled my phone from my pocket, noticing I had missed calls and text messages. Most were from my worrisome mother. A few from my over-protective father. I didn't feel like calling them back. So I just checked the time and slipped my phone carefully back into the pocket of my jeans. It was 9:00 P.M. exactly. I didn't know that I had been out here that long. It had been about 5:30 P.M. when I left. I sighed, my breath turning the icy air to smoke. I crossed my arms over my chest, trying to keep any heat that I had left on my small, shivering body. Trees towered along the sides of the path, making it impossible to see through them even in the daylight. It was the first time that I actually looked at my surrounding since I've been out here. My legs were getting tired and the temperature kept dropping the longer I stayed out here. I was one hundred percent positive that it was below 0 out here. But as I kept walking I noticed that the looks of this place never changed. It all looked exactly the same. There were no differences. I stopped walking and just looked around. I actually had stopped walking on my own. And that's when I heard it. The low animalistic growl coming from somewhere in the trees. I froze. I stopped breathing, moving, anything that would give away where I was. I couldn't feel anymore heat on my body now. My blood had turned cold. And the only thing that was running through my mind was, 'why didn't I go back?'
