It was getting dark as I walked down the wooded road. I was not afraid. Being alone in the woods was only scary if you let yourself be scared. A twig cracked to my right. Okay, maybe I was a little scared.
After escaping from the basement of the house I was held up in I had less to fear out here in the woods than what my captures might have done for me if I hadn't of used my head and taken the one opportunity to escape.
What a freaky day it was turning out to be. I was minding my own business when I found myself thrown into a car and dragged into a house I had never seen, to be left alone in the creepy basement.
They should have tied me up if they didn't want me to escape. Thankfully they were not that smart. Now I found myself on this wood road as night fell. I should be more concerned that they might find me, but I was more concerned about trying to figure out where in the hell I was.
The car ride wasn't that far, so I can't be too far away from where I had been snatched up. I thought as I walked. Crossing the stream and heading as far and as fast as I could away from my prison, I was happy to be away from there.
Since I had left in a huff, storming out of my house and swearing I would never come back, I doubt anyone back home had even begun to worry that I wasn't home yet. They probably wouldn't worry for a couple of days and it had only been a couple of hours!
No service on my cell, what would I say to anyone if I did have service? Hey, would you come get me? I am in the woods but I don't know where - I could see how that would play out! Safer in the woods ~ I thought to myself.
I had a feeling if my captures were looking they would be driving on the road, not searching the woods, thinking I would go to where I could flag someone down and escape more quickly. No stranger to walking, and knowing it is better to be off the main roads, I chose the woods. After all I didn't look like I would be an outdoorsy girl, but looks can be deceiving!
I saw a solid stick along the path, that would make a good weapon I thought, in case I was wrong and they did run into me. Chances are ~ I was okay, but better to be safe than sorry. I continued deeper down the wooded road.
Night fell. Now I was beginning to get scared. I kept walking, listening for voices, noises in the woods. Any signals which would alert me to be ready for fight or flight.
