Green Leaf Trees on Forest

The Prompt

Trees. All you can see are trees.

They’re everywhere. In front of you; behind you. To the left and to the right. And no matter where you place your eyes, you can’t escape the shadows that they’re casting in their wake.

Why had she done this? Why would she abandon you in the forest. She knows you’re afraid of the dark, for God’s sake, and it’s already rolling in. But there’s nothing you can do about that now.

There is something you can do, though. And when you find her again, you just might go for it.
