8. The Cabin In The Woods

Tara asked Gabriel where the tent was, but he didn't reply as he moaned in pain. Tars

desperatly tried to remember where they had come from, but the panic had made her lose all

memory of the trail. She shouted out with joy sayimg "footprints in the snow! I can just

follow them back to the tent!" She looked around herself to find the start of the

footprints, but only the ones she just made while looking remained. It has been snowing

hard, so all the footprints had been covered up.Tara was so glad she insisted on bringing

her rucksack. She decided their best bet for survival was to just keep walking in a

straight line, until they find civilization, or somewhere warm to stay the night. Gabriel

tried his best to walk, while holding tightly to Tara's shoulder making her wince in pain.


Soon Gabriel passed out with all the pain signals going to his head. Tara colapsed in the

snow with the sudden weight of Gabriel pulling down on her shoulder. She took her rucksack

off, and delved into it, throwing all of her clothes ontoth floo. She then tied them all

together, and pulled Gabriel on top of them all. She could then drag him th rest of the

way, by pulling him along on top of the clothes. Gabriel was still heavy, but Tar was

deturmined to help her best friend. She kept collapsing from the cold, and the exaustion.

She took her coat off to wrap around Gabriel as she noticed he was going blue in the face

with the cold wind nipping agressively at his cheeks.


As it began to get dark Tara was begining to get very desperate, when she noticed an old

wood cabin in the distance. She cried out for someone to hear her from inaide the cabin,

but no one came to assist her. As she dragged Gabriel closer to th cabin, she realized it

looked really old, and deserted. No lights were on inside, and there were a few cracks in

the roof. All of the windows had been boarded up as well. She dragged Gabriel inside thd

cabin, and then thoght about food and resources. She began to look in cuboards, and

drawers. She found an emrgency flare, a first aid kit, medicine in a cabnet above a broken

sink in a dusty bathroom, and a few cans on old food, but no can opener to get the cans



Tara looked around desperatly for a can opener. If she could find one, their was enough

food to last the two of them for days. With frustration she stamped on one of the tin cans,

causing a little bean juice to dribble out of the tin. She sipped a bit, and then fed a

little to Gabriel once he had woke up. She sighed with relief when she finally found the

tin opener in an old wooden crate she had to prize open with a crow bar. She tucked Gabriel

in her clothes, popped a pocet warmer, and cuddled up to him, preparing herself for yhe

long night ahead.
