The beautiful dress I wore was ruined, dirty with mud. Above all, it was wet making me shiver in the cool breeze that managed to get through the thick trees.

It was scary and I wanted to get back home, be safe and sound, be next to Edmund. I began to cry. No one was here to see me nor judge me. In a dress or not, dirty it might be, all I could think about was to last another day.

The tears washed the dirt off my face when I noticed the pinkish-red stain to it. I examined my face with trembling hands - it seemed fine, until I reached the spot on top of my head, just above my forehead. The injury that Maria caused hurt bad, only now I noticed it's existence. Dried up blood and barely healed wound had oozed the streams of blood before, coating my face.

"What am I going to do?" I cried to myself.

Everywhere I looked, dark trees masked the world behind them. The raising of thick fog reminded me of passed souls coming up from the graves. I decided to stand up but soon after realized that it's difficult to keep my posture steady, my head was spinning making everything much worse and a lot more confusing.

I did not know where I was, where to go or whom to ask for help. Not a single soul seemed to be living in these woods.

With the help of strong standing trees, I moved forward. Step by step I could not see the end of the forest. It drained my hope for safety or for an escape of certain death.

I had not had the best education or lived in rural areas, but I knew that the forests swarm with dangers. Packs of wolves, bears and other dangerous animals are living here. The thought of the

e a mirage suggesting there might be an opened field beyond.

My curiosity got better of me and without registering I felt my limbs carry me in that direction. More light came in view until the trees began to spread out and I could see colors eat the grey world away.

It was a field, green lush meadow - wild and untouched. My heart springs into happiness and I moved faster. I could not believe I am getting out and the thought of meeting somebody enlightened my heart.

There was nothing there, only grass and more forests beyond the meadow. My heart sunk and I dropped on my knees in despair.

"Damn animals! Can't spare anything for a hard-working man!"

I heard something grunt or growl, I could not tell. It sounded like an unknown animal, but I could hear glimpses of recognizable phrases as if it was a human being who talked.

"Hello! Is anybody there?" I was tiptoeing trying to see anything through the tall grass.

"Damn! I think I am starting to lose my senses!" There was a long pause. "Grace, is it you?" It was not a shout, but low, raspy mumble.
