The Wolf

When I was young, mom told me the story of red riding hood, only we used to called it Layla and the Wolf.
The Wolf tells the same story, but waay differently.

Am I being a rebel? A bad daughter my mother doesn’t deserve to have? She did after all remind me to take the shortcut. Ugh..

Come on, I don’t turn seventeen everyday! Let me have an adventure at least once in my life.

Honestly, I had no idea where I was going. I mean, I knew my grandma’s house was in the forest but I didn’t know exactly where it was, not from this way.

I walked and walked, I loved walking in the woods. It was so quiet, the only voices that could be heard were the voices of the birds and the wind moving the tree leaves. The air here smells different! It smells so great. Everything was going perfectly, bu then I heard a crack. I turned around, trying to see what’s the cause of this noise.

“Hel-lo?” I called. I didn’t raise my voice, I didn’t dare to for some reason. I knelt down to get a better look, it might just be a squirrel right?

“Layla?” A girl came out of the tree shadows. My friend, Phoebe.

“Phoebe! What’re you doing here?” I asked.

“What are you doing here? I’m here to pick some branches for dad.”

“Oh, well I’m just walking, the weather’s nice.”

“You shouldn’t be walking here.” She said. “It’s really dangerous. You know there are some wolves that live in the forest, right?”

“Yeah.. sure. But it’s okay, I won’t take long.” I lied. She smiled and picked the branches she had put on the ground.

“I’d better leave now, dad’s waiting for me.”

“See you, Phoebe.”

“Wait!” She shouted, throwing the branches on the ground.

“What is it?!” I asked, frightened.

“I almost forgot! Happy birthday!” And ran and hugged me. I laughed with relief.

“Thank you, Phoebe.” Pfft. Thank you for almost giving me a heart attack.

Okay Layla, stop being such a chicken. There are some wild animals here that we don’t see every day, so what? It’s not like they’ll attack me in this little walk I’m having.
