Its been a couple a days since I've last written a log. I have managed to find a spot in the woods that is safer than others. I'm currently sitting in the middle of a clearing where the monsters can't reach me. the forest is far larger than it looks. Before I came in here I thought it was possibly a 13 mile wide forest in all directions, I was wrong.
While walking for hours on end I haven't even reached the middle, I think. Now that I have time to think without it near me I can describe where I am. I have already stated that I am sitting in the middle of a clearing in the forest. The grass rubs against my skin and it tickles bring joy. The trees seem stretched, looming, towering, and so many other words to describe how tall they have become. The bark is withered and looks wet, I don't dare step out of the clearing to see what I feels like however.
I'm happy that I finally get a chance to nap but I am unsure as to whether that's a good choice. I'm only assuming I am safe after all, it may not follow the rules of the forest. I find it strange how when I saw that thing that I remembered something that seemed important. it was a creature that is kinda hard to express. A small mouse like figure shrouded within the darkness followed by a presence that I can't begin to quantify. they thing reminds me of when I was younger, my family owned this small pet rat. We called him nibbles because he did that to about everything. In fact, Nibbles was the reason I ever met Jorge and Henry.
One day Nibbles escaped the mansion my family was living in, my father sent the workers to find him. I was not to pleased and cried so I was swiftly asked what would make me happy. My mood changed from anger to happiness as I said I wanted to help. At the time I was about three years old and of course i don't remember this event. My father told me about it when I grew up but I do remember something strange. After a couple days my father outsourced the search for Nibbles to the entire town, offering a reward to who ever found Nibbles.
I ended up meeting Henry and Jorge that way. As I looked for Nibbles I thought I had saw him going to the playground so, I ran after him. When I caught up to nibbles his fur was darker than its usual white. Henry and Jorge where playing on the swing set and saw Nibbles as well, they got down and started playing with him. I threw a tantrum as Nibbles was mine and mine alone to be played with. Fond memories to look back on, Being such a brat was preferable to the now and here.
Jorge was the one who picked up Nibbles and started bringing him towards me as I wailed. Then, then was the moment that I remember so clearly. Nibbles turned towards me and looked at me, immediately I was filled with dread and fear. I wanted to kick, scream, run, cry, and just use myself utterly but I couldn't move. I felt cold and empty and alone. The fear closed in on me as if I was being watched by this being so out of this world. Slowly I started feeling pinpricks all over my body as my breathing quickened. It is like.........how to describe it. Have you ever had a moment of absolute and unreasonable fear? It was worse than that because my mind was telling me what to be afraid of. it. So, i was afraid of it and I couldn't move at all.
I felt as if staying close to the ground was no longer an option for me. I started climbing and I've gotten away from my small town. I've gotten away from the things that made me who I was at the time. In all honesty, as soon as I am out of here I'll cutting all ties I have had with this place.
It is getting a little dark on my end. The safe spot will disappear soon, I'll have to go. I will update this log later,
