Chapter 6

Where did they go? Who were they or should I ask what were they?

With these questions in my mind, I took in my surrounding. In the moonlight, I could see the forest. ' This is not the place where I was.' This part of the forest was much denser. I was sitting on a flat rock, surrounded by bushes and overhanging tree branches.

" I was resting on a tree. How did I come here? " I whispered to myself.

A muffled thunder began to sound in the sky. Thick dark clouds blocked the moonlight again. I cursed under my breath and switched on my torch. " It's about to rain, I should find shelter. "

Standing up, I looked around and started moving. I didn't know where I was going, but after a few minutes, I found myself at the same place where I started.

The rain was getting heavier and heavier. I stood up and started in the direction of the music. It wasn't scary but pleasant music. Trees were swaying in the waves of chilly wind. I felt goosebumps all over my body. It was pouring now and I was soaked to the skin. I could hear the music clearly now. Maybe I am a bit closer to it.

Suddenly I saw a fire burning in the distance. Maybe I will get some help there. I started walking towards it. When I reached there, I was stunned. There was a huge and dark bungalow standing in front of me.
