Original Writing Prose A Walk in the Woods

Extracts from this document...


A Walk in the Woods Chelsea Allen The wood was enormous. It was dark and it was cold and I needed to get home and quickly. I had had the strangest feeling all day that I was being followed, and due to past experiences I knew that these strange feelings often resulted in something much more.

I was simply a crippled heap lying in the middle of a wood. There was no one around, or was there?
