"Tut tut tut, I didn't hear you. Hello neopia!"
"That was much better." *sudden stopping noise*...
I suppose, that when you read that, you were expecting a happy story, in munchkinland with Cybunny White and Little Ruki Riding hood, and I StarFlar, was the hero? Well, if you were expecting that, you were wrong. This is a story about getting lost in the Haunted Woods, where the trees speak and the werelupes are more evil than ever...
It was last year, my birthday, and it was my choice of where we went out. Stupidly, I chose a camping trip in the Haunted Woods. I didn't realise the woods were really 'haunted' I just thought it was the name. When we arrived it looked as dull as ever, the trees had no leaves, the Brain Tree's brain was vibrating, and I just saw the Esophager eat a poor acara after she had failed one of his tasks. My brother, Jumpadoodledingdong, got really angry at him, so he got humiliated in the battledome.
We set up our tents and equipment right in the middle of the Haunted Woods, and since it was a while before night(it was still dark though) we went to the Deserted Fairground. I tried my luck on one of Sssidney's scratchcards and I won 3,000 neopoints although the Carnival of Terror was to scary for me. We bought some spooky food and won some great items on Test Your Strength but then it was time to head back.
We walked back to the Haunted Woods although Essucii ran. That was when I saw it. A tree. I know what you are thinking, a tree is normal, but this tree was different. Something was not right about it, a devilpuss with glowing red eyes was balancing on a branch I stopped and stared at it for about 10 minutes, then I finally broke away from it's evil trance. I headed back to camp, but my brothers were no where to be seen. I carried on walking, but I gradually broke into a run.
The trees were growing thicker and thicker, darker and darker. I looked at the moon and the stars, there were many different constellations I could see, the thief, the wave and my favourite one, the farmer. I had done star mapping at school and looked for the protector, if I found it it would help me judge where I was, but I couldn't find it. Just my luck, or should I say just the lack of my luck. It was about midnight; the time when the werelupes were most active. I heard a few howling at the moon. They were hungry. They were going to eat me. There was a ton of adrenaline pumping round my body, a rustling in the bushes was enough to make my head turn.
"Hooowwwwlllll" It jumped at me but luckily missed. That was when I realised, it was either me or the werelupe...
