"A Night in the Haunted Woods" by atomic_dreamer85
Oh no! You knew you shouldn't have fallen asleep in the woods...the Haunted Woods! You stand up and rub your eyes. It is very dark. Night has fallen. Everyone knows the warning not to stay after sunset. Where am I? You look around, nervous and heart thudding. A pair of eyes glow back at you from the distance. Yellow eyes. "Come out!" you say. The eyes blink and you hear a small cackle. "If you wish", an eerie voice says. A figure steps out from behind the trees. The yellow eyes belong to a cat-like witch, an Acara, in midnight blue robes. She smirks and offers her assistance, introduces herself as Fantor. "You seem lost. I can help." "How do I find my way out?" you ask. "Look down. See the thread of red light? Follow it and it will guide you. Beware of what you find along the way!" You start to ask where the red thread came from, but Fantor disappears before your eyes. Shrugging your shoulders, not surprised anymore at what happens in this place, you take your first step and begin your journey out of the Haunted Woods.You walk for a while, somehow avoiding danger, so you stop to rest at an old tree. The thread of red light snakes off into the distance. How much further does it go? Suddenly, you hear a loud growl. A beastly blob reaches for you! It’s Esophagor! You run like a scared Meerca, making sure to follow the red thread of light through the trees.
