Taking all the precautions
not to disturb the creatures or make yourself felt, you eased your trembling
body for the exit. The spiders still too busy to notice your presence, clustered
over a corpse of a wolf. A wolf, they caught with their nets, a gruesome death,
even for a savage. Shuddering, you reached the very end, the opening, which you
so longed for. Here, you still keeping very quiet, tiptoed farther. For a whole
entire hour you pained yourself with tense ears and muscles, your mind playing
paranoid tricks on your eyes, You kept on hearing shuffles, and groans. How
horrid! There, half a mile away you rested upon the ground; weary of your
travels, and in no time closed your eyes with overwhelming fatigue, you muscles
and mind aching.
The happy sun awoke you, mildly
stroking your cheeks with warmth. Here you lay on the ground, amidst a field.
Stretching, with a yawn, you felt better. As though a heavy load was lifted of
your chest. Your arm was better too, pain completely gone. Your eyes were
delighted and sensed that you were in your own backyard. The old chestnut that
you so adored swayed its massive branches, as if greeting you, back from a
dreadful place. But what were you doing, here in your back yard? The next thing
you noticed is the blanket that covered you. Where did that come from? Then your
glance fell upon your mom in the kitchen drinking coffee in her robe. Her gentle
face brought tears of happiness into your eyes. She saw you there in the field,
staring at her, and came outside. “How was your sleep, not too
uncomfortable?” she questioned.

get anything, did you? I knew that your friends where eager to go, but I told
them that you couldn’t, sleeping and all!" she continued.
You won good job.
