The Wild Wood
The park lay before Eddie. It was deep in the night. The trees covered the well-lit moonlight. Eddie started to walk across the pavement, crossing the trees one by one as he held his breath while keeping his fingers crossed. He sensed that there were two eyes following him as he went darker and darker into the park. He halted and stopped his tracks. He looked around him to see a lot of branches strewn over the pavement as leaves cluttered at a corner. But there was no sign of anyone other than him. He was expecting light at the end but it never came. His heart palpitated wildly as drips of sweat flowed down his forehead. Fear started to take over Eddie as fast as his heart was beating. The two eyes, now four, six, eight were multiplying at a rate. He stopped again in his tracks. The park was getting darker and darker until only his eyes and mouth was visible. He knew that he needed to do something, and that something was run. He ran towards the light as it got brighter and brighter. But unfortunately, he tripped over the branches and fell onto the ground when the park started to light up. He laid on the ground as he laughed to himself for scaring himself.
