He spun on his heel and started to walk away. I stood motionless not knowing what to do next. Is he leaving me here to fend for myself? Do I follow him?
After his body disappeared into the darkness of the surrounding trees I heard his voice. “Well are you just going to stand there?” I thought about this for a moment, actually thinking that might be the better option.

I started to jog in the direction he had walked. I had gotten only a few metres when an arm snaked out from behind a tree and grabbed me and then a fist slammed into my face. I saw stars but recovered quickly, thanks to my new found strength. The figure moved so fast I didn’t know which way to look or if I would be struck again. I leapt behind a log and fell into a crouch on full alert.
