Chapter 14

Billy thought it was the right road that might lead him out, but it wasn’t. He only made it worse for himself as he drew in farther down the road. When he turned around he found himself lost in the midst. He went in different directions looking for a way out, but it was no use. He walked on for a while which made him think for more than just a minute.

He didn’t know where he was going. He raged on in the darkness. He wanted someone or something to hear him but he knew that his screams meant nothing. He made up his mind and continued on walking. He fought with himself from time to time trying to figure out where the road was and which way led out. It took him a while to relax and try to think. He rested once again longer than before.

He sat there, thinking about Tracy. He felt sorry for her much more than he felt sorry for Sarah. He had a way to stop her talking to Tracy like that. For some reason he didn’t. There was nothing stopping him to yell at Sarah to stop. He regretted every moment in the car sitting there quietly while the rest of the guys were protecting her.

The more he thought about it, the angrier he got. His mind raced angrily and he rubbed his head hard giving himself a headache. He was thinking of how it was a mistake to go driving to Darwin. We should’ve gone on the plane; we should’ve gone on the plane. He knew that Tracy and Heather’s idea was better. He was driving himself crazy with all the thoughts that raged inside his head. He finally had enough and stood up and started walking.

He walked no more than ten feet and he heard noise. He turned around to see where the noise was coming from, but at night, the noise seemed to echo in different directions. He heard it again, this time it was in front of him. He heard the noise again, this time he heard it in the right direction. He turned around in circles not knowing where the noise was coming from. Finally he gave in he scrunched his hair in his hands thinking that he was only hallucinating and that there was nothing there.

But the noise continued on screeching and didn’t stop. He tried to relax; he closed his eyes and opened them thinking that it was just a dream, but it wasn’t. Dizzy from all the turmoil and the noise, he fell to the ground unconscious. The noise stopped and footsteps ran quickly and watched him sleep in a sea of nightmares.
