trees are so close together I have to
break through the grabbing branches. The
dogs seem to sound closer, but I am too
busy having to fight through these endless
arms of branches.
I look out the window I can see the dogs running
into the forest. I run out the door and into the
sun. I can hear the birds chirping and the wind
blowing through the trees. I see the dogs and run
in their direction. They run into the woods where
it is dark and scary looking. I start to run in
trees seem to grow bigger and surround me. The wind
now whistles through the trees making high screams.
I can feel my fingers getting cold, and my hair
blowing from side to side. I can't really see the
dogs but I can hear them. Run Justin, run, I tell
myself and I continue running in the direction of
the barking dogs.

I am to an open area. The dogs are right there in
the middle of the gully and it looks like there is
a ray of sunlight pouring onto the dogs. I want to
go to the dogs. The dogs seem to be waiting for me.
I think I am going to sit with them.
damp grass that carpets the ground is soft and the
dog's fur feels warm when I grab a fistful of hair.
This place is different. When I look up, the trees
form walls around the gully making me feel safe and
warm. The rotting log laying up the side of the
gully looks like a ladder to the top of the gully
and the moss covered rocks glow bright green.
all this adventure makes me feel tired. The dog's
stomach will be a good place to lie down. Tasha's
barrel shaped body is the perfect place to lay my
head. I can see the world going black.
it's so cold. I see the gully and I am all by
myself. Where did the Tasha and Amok go? I am all
alone, and I feel cold. Now that I am standing, I
can fully see that I am all alone and no one is
around. WHAT DO I DO? "TASHA, AMOK". They are not
coming. I need to get away from here. I feel really
Justin, run. I can't see anything. I am back in the
grabbing trees. I can feel my clothes being pulled
again, I want my mom. Let me go please! Wow, I
broke that branch right off the tree. I don't know
where to go. All the trees are flying by me so
fast. Where do I go? There are trees everywhere. I
am never going to see my mom again. I am going to
die out here. It's not fair. I hate my life. I need
to keep running.
see light! I can see the wood shop. Run faster
Justin. "OUCH!" my face landed in the dirt and I
can see red all over my hands; they feel like
they're burning. Just run Justin. I can see my
mom's car driving in. "MOM, MOM!" my throat is
starting to feel sore from all my screaming. My mom
is so close. Only a little bit farther.
mom looks at me and seems scared. Why is she
scared? I am scared, not her. She is running to me
screaming. Screaming to me, "WHAT IS WRONG". Why is
she being so rough with me? She keeps looking me
all over. At least I am in my moms arms. I feel
completely safe now.
this time on that place will be the dog sanctuary.
My dogs and I will always go there. Even though
getting there is scary, it will be my spot that no
one can touch.
