Chapter 1: A walk in the woods

I grabbed the box off the truck “This is the last one, George.” I said, as I placed it neatly into the storage unit.

George looked at me, a solemn expression on his face “You sure you want to do this kiddo?” He questioned me.

George was my father’s best friend and has been so good to me, ever since my parents passing. I don’t know what I would have done without him, he has been the support system I didn’t know I needed in order to get through this. I stood there, staring into the unit, glancing around at my whole life, that was now neatly packed into boxes.

I inhaled deeply “Yes, I am sure. I need to do this, for myself and for them.” This was a decision I had struggled with for some time, but in the end, I decided it was the best thing for me to do.

George placed a hand onto my shoulder and lightly squeezed “I understand.” He smiled reassuringly, even though he was against me doing this, I know he would never stop me.

I glanced once more, than quickly slammed the door shut, before I did change my mind and backed out.

After what felt like an eternity of driving and every song that was downloaded to my phone, I had finally arrived at Killarney Provincial Park, my first destination. This was the most important destination and was the first on my list because of that. I stepped out of the car, stretching my muscles and limbs. I began to feel overwhelmed, that I was actually here and here without them, it felt a bit surreal. I gazed around at the park, it was so beautiful and lush. The trees stood tall and proud, as far as the eye could see. My goal was to reach Killarney lake, it was a long and treacherous hike through the Crack trail, but I was determined to make it.

I grabbed all of my gear, locked the car and began my journey. I took my time as I walked through the trails, admiring the beauty that surrounded me and capturing photos of anything that stood out. It was so peaceful and calming here.

I had been on the trail for a few hours now and the sun was beginning to set, making me realize that the day had slipped away from me and soon, darkness would be upon me. Thankfully, I was prepared and had brought a small tent with me, just in case.

I walked a bit further and noticed a small opening in the trees, almost like a path. I was a bit hesitant to go off the trail, but I wanted to set up somewhere that I would have coverage. I veered off the path and into the clearing, it was clouded with brush for a few feet, but then cleared up a bit, revealing a clearing that was just off the path and was perfect for setting up my tent. I had set down my things and gazed around me at the beautiful view. I truly was astonished at the scenery here. I began to get everything together, taking my time and setting things up how I wanted it, when I heard a loud growl come from behind me. I instantly froze, as my heart began to race and my breathing became ragged. I knew there were large animals out here, I had just hoped to not run into any of them, luckily George, gave me some bear spray. I did my best to remain calm, trying not to make any noise or sudden movements. I bent down and slowly reached into my bag to grab the can of spray. I stood back up and gradually glanced around, staring into the trees around me, looking for any signs of an animal.

Another lethal growl resonated off the trees, but this time, if came from my left and sounded much closer. I looked all around me, but couldn’t see anything and I was rapidly losing light, making it harder for me to see. The sound of branches cracking flooded my ears, as a vicious snarl came from behind me. I turned around and was horrified at the sight before me. A large reddish-brown wolf stood before me, I wanted to scream, but nothing came out. The wolf was massive and broad, but also beautiful in all his glory, I was shocked and scared half to death, however I also admired the beast before me. The wolf now stood in an attack position, his large ears folded back and deadly sharp teeth bared.

Panic was rising quickly within me, I gripped my spray tightly and pulled the trigger, aiming it directly at him. The wolf whimpered loudly and stumbled backwards. I took this as my opportunity, not wasting a second and bolted in the opposite direction. I ran as fast as my legs could take me, but within mere seconds, a loud howl rang throughout the forest, rattling me to my core, knowing I had now pissed the beast off even more. The sound of the wolfs paws, began to pound against the forest floor, echoing all around me and informing me, that he was coming and fast! I continued to run, dodging branches, leaping over rocks and fallen branches. My chest and legs began to burn and ache. Out of the corner of my eye, I spotted a small cave, big enough for me to hide in. I picked up speed and dove in, burying myself into it, so not to be visible. I took some mud and leaves from the ground and rubbed it all over my body, hoping to mask my scent.

I covered my mouth and closed my eyes. Never had I been so scared in my life before, my heart felt like it was going to blow out of my chest. I could hear the wolf pacing around outside of the cave, growling and snarling.

After a few minutes, I didn’t hear him anymore. I peeked out slightly and the coast was clear. I slowly emerged, looking all around me and just when I thought he was gone, he leaped in front of me, causing me to stumble over a rock and fall flat on my ass.

My breath hitched and my body trembled with fear, as he closed in on me. I thought for sure I was going to die, I closed my eyes, waiting for him to tear me to pieces, but something firmly gripped my arm and yanked me off the ground. I whipped my head around to see what had a hold of me, not expecting to see a large man. The man towered over me, he was so large and muscular, with light brown hair and bright brown eyes. He grinned down at me, before everything went dark, as I felt something hit me hard on the head.
