2. Chapter One

The smell of the pine tree's filled my nose as I ran past what I saw that frightened me.

"Clove...Clove...Clove..." the voices whispered.

I don't know what happened. I was walking through the park as usual at night. It's midnight. My favorite time of night. Usually everyone on my street was asleep by now but I never sleep at midnight I stay up until then to go outside and into the forest across town. But what had happened just a few moments ago I will never forget.


It was midnight and I snuck out of my home and slipped out of the back door. Normal. Next I ventured out into the forest as I did each night for the past year. Again normal. I walked down the lightly dimmed streets to walk across town to reach the forest. I walked in the middle of the road. Normal. I finally reached the forest and I walked into the tree's. Again normal. I walked farther into the tree's. Something was different about tonight... Whatever. I continued walking into the tree's. There was a glow in the distance... I picked up my pace to get a closer look. What is this. I stopped about a yard away from it... It was like a mist... I reached out to touch it but it faded when I reached my hands out for a touch. That's when things started to get unusual... I heard my name being called in a distance but it sounded faint.

"Clove...Clove...Clove..." the voices whispered.

I wasn't usually scared but this was different. This has never happened to me. I ran away from it.


I stopped in front of a big tall tree. What I saw hanging from it scared me more than the voices or the mist...
