You're Never Alone

Chapter 6


The next day, I was at my favorite hunting spot, hoping for lunch. I guess you could call that spot my "home". It was where I stayed the majority of the time, and I ate and slept there. It was the closest thing to a "home" I was probably ever going to have.

Anyway, I was at my "home," hoping I would be having some lunch, when a wolf ran into my line of sight. I again waited three seconds before firing. One...two...THREE!!!!!!! My aroow snapped down, but the wolf jumped out of the way, turned around, and attacked me in the span of about three seconds. I paniced, and I felt myself change into a coyote. When I felt scared, my morphing became out of my control. That's why I turned into a frog and got here in the first place.

The wolf was startled at the weird changing of its prey, and slowly backed off of me. I couldn't believe my eyes when I saw it slowly morph into a girl. She was wearing camo pants and an army green shirt. Her curly brown hair was tied back and her hazel eyes looked at me wearily.

I slowly turned back into a human, and I stuttered out, "Y-y-you're like me."

She smiled a slow smile, "Yeah, I guess," she said. "How did you get her?"

A series of painful memories flashed through my mind. My mom's slap; my shrinking; her eyes widening; her foot almost squishing my frog body; the box covering me; waking up, in the forest, all alone.

She quickly said, "You don't have to tell me though," I smiled a very sad smile. I also saw where her arm was bleeding. I must have knicked her with my arrow.

"You're hurt," I said, "Come with me." I climbed up the tree to my stash of bloodmoss and ground it into a paste to treat her wound. I also gave her a willow leave to chew on. "Don't swallow it, just chew it. It won't taste very good, but it will kill the pain," I told her. She followed my instrutions.

"There," I said, "Any better?" She nodded.

"Hey," she said, "I never got your name."

"Lillian," I smiled, "And yours?"

"Randi," she replied.

"Do you have a family?" I asked her. I said "family" like it was something sacred, something I would never get.

"Sorta," she told me. "I have my grandparents. They take care of me on a farm nearby."

"You're so lucky. You live in a house. With prepared food. And you go to school." I exclaimed.

"School isn't all that great," she replied.

"At least you have the choice," I said. Suddenly, Ran i had a glimmer in her eye.

"I have a crazy idea," she whispered, "Come to back to the house with me."
