PROLOGUE: 

The trees whisper around you, hushed secrets and fortunes. They they send a swirling breeze around you, leaves fly up and try to block your view annoyingly and the roots seem to reach up and out, pressuring you to trip over them and they never seem to end. A low hum suddenly comes from deeper in the woods around you. You shiver as it happens again, and this time, the words, low and nearly incoherent, hit your ears. The words send you shaking and your beat speeds up frantically. Your eyes widen and you look around at the darkening sky, wrapping you up in a blanket of fear. 

An owl hoots from behind you and suddenly you're on the ground. Your head aches and your hands are sprawled out over roots and rocks. A sudden pain erupts from your back and the world goes dark.
