21. 20: The Drive -written 11/22/15

Ella sat on the worn seat, and stared out of the window. It would be half an hours drive the the Wilhelm mansion. She drummed her fingers on the window and stared outside at the blurring landscape filled with bright greens and browns. They were passing the Wilhelm Woods. Ella shivered as she remembered her dream. Ezrah peered over at her, turning down his GreenDay disk. 

"Are you alright?" He asked, apparently noticing her shiver. 

"I just had a weird dream about the deaths and the Woods. It explained everything but it was completely fantastical."

"What happened?"

"I was in my house and then I was just...suddenly in the woods. And the trees and branches and roots started to attack me and pull at me. And the rocks threw them selves at my legs and at the end of the dream, I looked down and there was a hole through my chest where one of the roots impaled me." Ezrah was silent for a moment. 

"It does seem to explain it." he said quietly and turned up his disk. Ella went back to staring out the window.
