Meet Me Deep In the Forest -By the Willow Tree-

*Part of Story*

I crawl over to the relaxing stream and look at the moonlit reflexion. But the person who stares back at me, isn't me. She has the same flaming red curls, the same height, but what I see isn't who she was a year ago. Instead of the light blue eyes with speckles of gold that could light up anyone's day, is a dark blue pit. A hole, that is filled with anger, confusion, and hurt. Her face is shallow. This thing is in pain. Her bruises and scars show on her arms.

I don't know this person.

*Real Description*
Scarelott lives with her parents and her little brother, Oliver, or Ollie. They are very close, but when her parents, Neil and Molly start to have troubles with the bills, things start to go downhill. They get into drinking problems, and now they are abusing their children. When Red (Scarelott) can't take it anymore, she runs away. She is seventeen years old, and knows only one place that she can stay. Deep in the forest, by the willow tree.

4. Safe Haven

I finally reach my safe new home by the willow. My eyes glance at the familiar cave I have visited countless times. Legs taking control, they run into the dark heaven. The cave walls are covered in soft damp moss, and the ground is caked with crunchy leaves. My Safe Haven.

Immediately, I get to work. Grabbing my bag, my eyes scan for the red pocket knife. Quickly finding the bright red color, I take it and go outside by the trees. It may be early spring, but it's going to get hot really quickly, and then the coldness will take over. Knowing what to do from back-packing trips with Ben a few years ago, I start making this little cave into a suitable home.

Many Hours Later 

I finish finally with the entrance of my new home. For this place to be safe from wild animals and other intruders, I had to make a door to get in.

My stomach rumbles angrily from lack of food. Sighing, I grab a nice sturdy stick from the ground and using my pocketknife, I make a spear. 

I swiftly go into the cave, and look out to the forest from the open door. Unaware of my presence, a large rabbit hops into my sight after about an hour of waiting. I crouch, waiting for the rabbit to turn away, and as soon as it does, I attack. I sprint forward and throw the spear before the little critter knows what's happening. It hits him in the backing, forcing it to stay put. I run up to the rabbit, pray for it to safely enter the golden gates and for forgiveness, and finish it off my my knife quickly. 

I run back to my cave and quickly start a fire. While it is going, I skin the rabbit. It takes about forty-five minutes, but I know the wait will be worth it. I grab my spear and stick it through the slab of meat, and let it cook over the crackling fire. 

I chuckle to myself as I think. This is my Safe Haven.
