It was dark and cold...


by Maria Jose Garcia

I was lost. I just wanted to go back home, but no matter how hard I tried, I kept on walking in circles.

The forest was dark and humid and, for some reason, I had lost my shoes.

'Help, can anybody please help me?' I shouted. No answer. Nothing.

After a while, I sat down against a tree and cried. That's when I heard the siren. A police car! Somebody was looking for me!

A cop got out. I was about to say hello, but the desolate expression on his face stopped me.

'Here! I found a body,' he said.
