“It’s getting dark, oh my god, what if someone sees us, oh my god, oh my god, oh my god, what if we’re late and mum reports me missing, you know how …”
“SHUT UP, SHUT UP, SHUT UP! JUST LET ME THINK!” he snaps rubbing the red mark on his neck, staring long and hard at the body between his legs, as though if he were to stare hard enough it’ll get straight back and ask about his day.
It got darker earlier than usual and the temperature began to drop exceedingly fast considering it’s the middle of the summer. The sunlight began to fade, creating new shadows and darker patches around the towering pine trees, making them look haunting. The entire forest frowned down skeptically at the scene playing beneath them, as the atmosphere suddenly became claustrophobic.
