You stumbled over a tree root. You'd been walking for what felt like forever. You were going to your grandma's house.You felt a lot like Little Red Riding Hood.
You stopped and lifted your [ec] eyes up to a hole in the trees, the first you have seen in what felt like ages. Your [hc] caught in the sunlight. You wondered how a forest could be so dark all of the time, or how anything could survive here.
Your thoughts about the forest was interupted by something falling right in front of you. You jumped back and gave a little squeak. Upon a closer look, you saw that the something that had fallen out of the trees was actually a someone. You ventured a little closer. The someone groaned and lifted his head up. It was a boy that looked about you age, which was [a]. He had a mess of blonde hair, only held back by a black bandanna. he had bright blue eyes, through they looked a little cross-eyed at the moment. He was tall and thin, and he wore a green shirt and blue jeans.
"Are you ok?" you asked.
The someone sat up, still looking a little cross-eyed. "Yeah," he said. "Your hair blinded me."
"What?!?" you said, aghast.
"Well, I was tree-jumping, and then I looked down, and I saw your hair, and it blinded me! And, I put up my hands to block my eyes, and I fell!"
You blushed uncontrolably. To change the subject, you asked, "What's your name?"
"I'm Martyn. Martyn Littlewood. How 'bout you?"
"________. ________ [ln]. Why were you - um - tree-jumping?"
"It's the fastest way to travel across the forest." He puffed himself up. "It takes a lot of skill to tree-jump."
"Really?" You looked intrested. "Can I try?"
Martyn looked at you skeptically. "Are you sure?"
"Yeah," you said, slightly indigantly. "I can do it."
"Ok," Martyn was smiling michiviously. "Let's go." And he climbed up the nearest tree.
You ran to the tree that Martyn went up. You saw Martyn, still smiling that michivious smile, looking down you.
"Well?" Martyn asked. "You said you could do this."
"I can!" you shouted. Out of pure rage, you'd scrambled up the tree also. You looked at Martyn triumphently. He looked impressed, but he said, "That's the easy part."
And, with that, he jumped over to another branch.
You looked nervously after him. "Come on!" Martyn shouted playfully. "It's fun!" You took a deep breath and jumped after him. You just barely managed not to fall off when you landed.
"I thought you were never going to jump!" Martyn said michioiously, through he did look impressed. "That was good... for a beginner." You looked at him irratably. "Come on," he said. "Let's go!"
Which each jump, you landed more and more gracefully. Soon you were catching up with Martyn. He finally admited this by saying, "Wow, you're getting good! Hey, I have an idea! Wanna race?"
"Sure," you said.
You guys raced for a little while, having lots of fun. You didn't stop until you and Martyn reached a paticually large gap between two branches. Martyn easily jumped the gap, but you hesitated. "What's the matter?" Martyn asked.
"I don't know," you said. "This gap looks a little big."
"Aw come on!" Martyn exclaimed. "It's not that long! Try it!"
You took one more uncertain look at the gap. "Ok." And you jumped the gap.
You didn't make it. You held on to the very tip of the branch you were trying to land on, which bent down untill she was almost at the ground. "________?" You looked up. Martyn was on another branch above you. "Are you all right?"
"Yeah," you said. "I'm -" Just then, the branch that you were clinging on to snapped. You fell into a bush, but got up, groaning. But, then, you froze.
Martyn jumped down from a lower branch. "What's the matter - oh my god!" He grabbed a nearby stick and planted himself in front of you.
"Run," Martyn hissed at you. You backed away from him and the giant black bear that was in front of them.
Without thinking, she grabbed a nearby stick and stood next to Martyn, trembling slightly.
"What are you doing, ________?!?" Martyn shouted at you.
"Saving you," you replied. "Ok, on the count of three,we'll drop our sticks and make a break for the nearest tree, and tree-jump away. "One... two... oh screw it, RUN!" Both of you guys dropped your sticks and ran for the nearest tree. The bear ran after them, its feet pounding against the hard ground.
You guys reached a tree. Martyn and you scrambled up it, Martyn giving you a hand, as he reached a strong branch first. For some reason, your heart beat even faster than it was already.
The bear started to climb slowly up after you guys. They quickly tree-jumped away from the bear's tree. You guys didn't stop until it was out of sight.
You and Martyn sat down on a sturdy branch. They looked around nervously. There was no sign of the bear. You looked over at Martyn and saw that he was blushing and looking at the ground.
"Um... thanks for saving me back there," Martyn said awkwardly. "That bear probley would have ripped me to pieces."
You felt yourself blushing also. "Thanks for trying to save me," you said. "But... I couldn't let you just die."
You guys sat there awkwardly for a little while, then Martyn said, "I never asked you... why are you in this forest anyway?"
"I'm going to stay with my grandmother for the summer," you replied.
Martyn's face lit up. "Really? I think I know your grandma. She's [gm], right? I live right next door to her!"
Your heart soared. "Then I guess I'll be spending the whole summer with you," you said.
"Why do you sound so dull!" Martyn hit you playfully on the back. "We'll have loads of fun! Come on, let's go! I won't make you jump any long gaps." And so they set off, looking foward to the summer ahead.
