39. again in the woods
Hunter was eating an apple in Lana's kitchen. Then he suddenly felt his phone beginning to ring in his pants. He slide the phone out from his pocket and looked down at the screen. It was a text from Victor saying "hey let's go search back into the woods, let's just go me and you it's better if we travel in a small group, I've been snooping around my brother and I found out there was some secrete place he always likes going to."
Hunter texted back "sure what time?"
"Isn't that kind of late?" Hunter quickly typed. But victor never replied back.
Hunter drove to pick up victor in Lana's family car. As hunter began pulling out of the driveway , victor said "I have a good idea of the place because when I was in middle school my brother after school he would always get home really late . One day I hid in the back of his car and I found out he would just drive to the woods. I followed him deep in the woods and there was this cleared space with some weird slanted rock that formed a cave"
"Why didn't you tell us this the last time we were in the woods?" Hunter stared at the road
" must of slipped my mind" victor shrugged
They parked into the empty lot . Hunter saw it was pitch black out side. Luckily he brought a flashlight and so did victor.
Victor lead the way as they walked further and further in the woods.
Hunter heard a small cruching sound behind them. Hunter stopped and turned around scanning behind them but saw no one
"Just a deer maybe" victor said
"Maybe" hunter mumbled as he turned back around
It wasn't long before they found the clearing victor was talking about with the slanted rock. Hunter shun his flashlight around. He noticed empty beer cans and candy wrappers near the cave. He went further into the cave and suddenly saw a glint of metal all the way in the far corner. He reached to pick it up and it turned out to be a chain with a key tied to it. Hunter's pulse was racing , could this really be the key!? He thought. He slowly backed out of the cave with the chain in his hand "hey victor I think I found -"
Hunter suddenly felt bolt of pain wash over his head as he heard a crack in his skull. Hunter began to collapse as the pain sheets through his whole body as he felt himself finally fall onto the cold ground. He saw victors feet slowly run toward him with concern . But suddenly another dark figure emerged from the trees and Hunter then began to fade into the darkness.
