The ground started to get rockier, it seemed as Ella and Ezrah sprinted, hand in hand, through the woods. They could still here the slithering from behind them as it seemed to be from nowhere, a tree appeared in front of them, Ezrah pulled her closer to him to keep her from not running into it and they ran further and further away, but it felt like a trap. The further they ran away, the further they were to getting out. 

The sky seemed to grow darker and darker with every step, and suddenly, the terrain was filled with thorn bushes that almost seemed to of appeared by magic. Ella remembered her dream. The Woods Were ALIVE. 

"My dream!" Ella yelled to Ezrah. "The Woods are alive!"She half expected him to tell her off, to say that there was a logical reason for this and that everything would be alright. But nothing came. The just continued running, jumping over large roots and fallen trees, running from the slithering things behind them that wrapped themselves around their ankles when they stopped, through the thorn bushes that scratched at them and flinching at the rocks, which suddenly appeared to be thrown at them hard enough to cause more and more bruises. Ezrah squeezed Ella's hand tighter.
