1. Unexpected Vistors
I woke up to the wind playing with the leaves. Normal for a cool,autumn day. I got up. I lived in a cave deep in the woods. I walked out and saw the sun was just coming up. Birds were chirping,bugs flew through the air, it was peaceful. I liked it that way. I walked down a path I had made long ago when I first came here. It was just a foot path at first with leaves and pebbles pushed to the sides. Now, it was a 3 foot wide path with stones a lining the sides. The path led to a steam with clear waters. Nobody knew about this place so it almost was clean to drink or eat. The stream was about 2 feet wide and 6 inches deep. I bent down and cupped my hands in the water. I brought my hands to my lips and sipped the water.
I wiped my mouth and stood up. As soon I turned around a huge gust of air blew in my face. I shivered and hugged myself to keep warm against a cold breeze. I walked back to my cave. I looked over to the left. I sighed. I had planted vegegables this summer,but no plant survived the harsh sun. I had almost no food left. Nuts I had found that were edible and fruits picked from trees. I had no meat. I didn't like seeing animals get hurt. And besides I had no way of making a fire to even cook the meat.
Suddenly there was a sound of something I never heard. I didn't like it either. I was the sound of a engine running, rocks and twigs crackling and breaking under tires. I ran into the cave and sat in the farthest corner from the entrance. I pulled my knees to my chest. Pictures of my dad and mom flashed in my mind. I was rocking back and forth. Tears raced down my cheeks."Go away,go away," I repeated. My mind was cluttered in flash backs. But the only thing clear was: I needed to get rid of them. Fast.
