We are going to die, I thought. There was nowhere to go, they were everywhere. Suddenly one of them turned and faced the others and then made some kind of annoying loud sounds from its mouth and pointed at us, I didn’t know what it was saying or doing but I defiantly didn’t like the way they looked at me and James. Impetuously Jamie fell and lay on his front, motionless, a huge rock lay beside his head, which was now bleeding. “Jamie, Oh no! Jamie gets up” my frightful cries were echoing everywhere. Just then I felt a sudden sharp pain at the back of my head. It all happened so fast and the pain was so agonizing that I fell to the ground just beside James. Once again mist covered my eyes, everything started to disappear slowly and numbness covered my body. The burning heat from a nearby bonfire woke me up. Slowly and gradually I realized where I was but had no Idea what had happened and how on earth did I got here. At first I thought I was in my bed but my back was on something hard and rough. I was still a little dizzy. I tried to move my hands and legs but they felt as if they were tied stiff. I looked down and no sooner realized that I was tied to a huge tree by a rope. Then it hit me and I remembered everything but I dint knew how long had I been fainted. But something was very strange, very strange indeed. Yes, those ‘things’ were nowhere to be seen. I dared not made any kind of sound because what if those creatures were around here somewhere and what if they were waiting for me to wake up and then………I dint even wanted to think about it. I looked around, well just moved my eyes because I was really afraid those things would come back any minute from where ever they were. All was dark, except the light which was coming from the bonfire. Where were those things? Then from the side of my right eye I saw something move. I turned and saw James, tied to a tree which was a few feet away from mine. “James, pssst……. James, are you alright?” I asked almost in a whisper. “What….. What happened? Where are we?”He asked, surprised as, he too, didn’t remember what had happened. “We are still where we were a few hours ago before those creatures threw stones at us to make us unconscious so that they could tie us to these trees and then when we wake they would barbeque us on that fire and eat us up and THIS IS ALL YOUR FAULT” I said as anger started bursting into me. “Hey hold on, MY FAULT, you were the one who wanted to build a raft and that’s what brought us here” he said. My mouth open wide and I was about to yell at him when he said “Shhhh…. They would listen” I instantly closed my mouth and tried to relax. “Ok there is no point of fighting; we are just wasting our time. Those things would be back any minute” I said. “You are probably right, I am sorry. Now how do we free ourselves” he said wriggling and twisting. “Man, these are strong, I wish I had a knife” I said. “A knife, yes, that’s it” James said excitement covering his face. “Hey Sarah, remember when I was examining those knifes? Well I now remember putting one of them into my back pocket” “Well why didn’t you use it while those creatures were attacking us?” I asked. “I was, err... A bit scared and anyways it wouldn’t have worked as there were so many of them and we were only two with one weapon” he said. “Can you reach it?” I asked impatiently. “I am trying……..wait…..ummm... Got it!” “Good!”I said, relieved. He cut himself free and then came to help me. He was just about to begin when we heard a blood-curdling scream. “Oh no, not again, fast Jamie, FAST” I screamed at him. The rope loosened and Jamie and I started running when I stopped stiff. “What? What’s the matter?” his face, white again. “We need the ropes, wait here I will get them .I turned before he could reply and ran back, reached down and took the rope. Another high pitched scream was heard, louder than before. I looked up to see those creatures coming this way.
