I walked silently to the meeting point through damp and treacherous terrain. The water came up to the top of my boots as I waded through the cold water making my steps sound like suction cups on glass. SLOSH, SLOSH, SLOSH. As I walked over a rabbit hole I heard mumbled conversation. Some of the words sounded like a foreign language so I crouched behind a bolder tensing to hear every whisper. The voices started to grow louder, more agitated. Out of the blue an ear bursting BANG turned my world upside down and a flash of light illuminated the treetops. My last thought was they had found me!
