The Wild Woods ( Guan Yu )

                 The street lay in front of him. It was filled with cars going at a break-neck speed. Headlights shone brightly like fireflies in a dark forest. The traffic junction was filled with people waiting to get to the other side of the road where the train station was. Jimmy was heading to his best friend Sam's house which was located in the forest behind the station.Jimmy crossed the road and walked into the dark lonely pathway which leads to Sam's house. As Jimmy crossed the eerie pathway, he felt beads of perspiration forming on his forehead. He never believed in ghosts but this was sending chills up his spine. Out of the blue, Jimmy heard a loud familiar sound of twigs snapping. He immediately turned to the source of the sound and saw a shadow bolting past. Jimmy tried listening out for the same sound but all he could hear was the crickets making a lot of noise. He resumed walking, but more silently this time. The same sound reappeared, Jimmy turned around and saw the same figure. By this time, his dace turned pale and he was mumbling to himself. The sound of the twigs snapping became louder and faster until the figure appeared in multiple directions as a gust of wind blew. Jimmy stood rooted to the ground , looking around slowly as a tear rolled down his cheeks, he was lost for words and did not know what to do. Then, the figure came slowly towards him. His eyes widen as the figure came nearer. A squirrel popped out, crossed the path and into the other side of the forest. He heaved a sigh of immense relief as he resumed walking to Sam's house.
