Midnight Encounter.

Extracts from this document...


Midnight Encounter Harvey had heard about the disappearances in the forest. Despite what his parents had said and the rumours he had heard, he was not going to let himself be scared by some over exaggerated stories. After all, he was fifteen years old and strong and definitely didn't think anything could possibly happen to him. It was one of those days in the middle of July when the summer seems as if it will never end. Harvey was wanted to make the most of his holiday and was going to stay at someone's house with a couple of friends and hoped to arrive before dark. His parents had insisted on him taking the long way round and bypassing the forest but he decided it would take to long.

He turned round and saw that his gigantic pursuer was gaining on him - his huge legs were covering vast amounts of ground. Harvey kept on running and through the trees he could see the lights from the road and from the houses. Eventually he bounded out of the forest on to the reassuring concrete of the well lit road. He continued to run down the pavement, along side the houses but he was exhausted and his were tired. He dared o take another look behind him. The street was empty. He looked all around but there was nobody to be seen apart from passing cars. He gradually stopped and breathed a sigh of relief. He wiped the sweat from his forehead and reached for his backpack.
