The Lurking Shadows

Extracts from this document...

As the years went by the rumours started to become more and more distorted. Then it became just a mere folk tale. However to one young little girl the woods were never dangerous but full of wonders, friends and creatures. It was her own wonderland. Those beautiful flowers who would dance with the ever changing rhythm of the wind. It was always spring there. Spring that personifies happiness and happiness that symbolises her life up until now.

She could only scream in horror. ...read more.
