7. Poisonous Berries

Tara awakened with Gabriels arm around her waist. She blushed withvembaressment as she

pushed his sleeping body off of hers. She got out of the sleeping bag, and began searhing

through her rucksack to see what resources she had taken on the hike. There was a torch,

andrew  couple pocket warmers ready to pop. There was some spare clothes shevhad also

brought with her. She didn't pack her firt aid kit, or anything important because she

didn't realize this would happen. She moaned crossly when she couldn't find any food in her

rucksack. There was no food in Gabriels either. She then groaned when she remembered how

she has nearly brought a large bag of cheese balls with her to have on the hike. She sighed

to herself at the thought of all the other students having warm soup, porridge, and hot



Gabriel began to wake up to the zipping noise the rucksack was making. "What are you

doing?" Gabriel asked with interest. "Looking for foodm but none of us packed any". Gabriel

tried to steer the conversation to cheer her up. "Were you warm last night?" Tara hated how

she always blushed. She said with a shudder "yes I was thank you". Gabriel smiled and said

proudly "well that's good then, so was I". Tara didn't want to be talking about thst

anymore so she changed the conversation back to food. "I'm hungry". Gabriel sighed and said

"we wilo just have to go and look for  berries in the woods or something". Tara moaned  

saying "but my dad tells me never to eat any berries you find in the woodS". Gabriel said

cheerfully "I know a blackberry from a nightshade berry". Tara burst his joyful bubble by

saying "blackberries don't grow in the winter". Gabriel groaned crossly as they began to

leave the tent.


They walked along side by side, leaving a trail of footprints in the fresh snow. Tara went

a little ahead to find somwhere to go to thr toilet in privacy. Gabriel waited around by a

bush full of round berries. When Gabriel noticed the berries, he studyed thrm carefully.

"Well there not nightshade berries. They look edible. Oh wht the hell". And with that he

began picking a few berries, and eating them. Ehen Tara came back she gasped with shock.

Gabriel tried to hand her some berries saying cheekily "they taste so good". Tara crird out

"those are poisonous berries! They cause you to have a feaver that lasts days!" Gabriel sad

"what?!" with s terrified look in his eyes. Tara took control shaking him by the shoulders

shouting "how many did you eat! More than five will surely kill you!" Gabriel yelled in s

frenzied panic "about four or five! Oh Tara, am I going to die?!" Tara burst into tears as

he feared for her best friends life.


Gabriel held him stomach in agony, groaning with pain. He looked pleadingly into Tara's

eyes repeating himself in a faint whisper "Tara, am I going to die?" Tara soothingly

assured him saying "no if I can help it. Come on, I gotta get you back to the tent, and the

look for someone to help you". Gabriel put his arm Tara, as she lifted him to his feet with

a slight wobble. Tara said with slight worry in her voice "where was the tent again?"
