“Oh, so you didn’t-”
“Shhhhh! Do you hear that?”Robert interrupts, putting out his arm to stop me. I blink at the sudden movement.
“Um, no?” I venture. We both fall silent, listening. Suddenly, I hear a rustle in the bushes.
Instinctively, we both step back, me clutching Robert without realizing it. A large, malicious bobcat appeared out of the bushes, and we both began walking backwards.
“Should we run?” I whisper.
“No!” Robert whisper-yells back. “If we run, the bobcat will react to its instincts and chase us and probably eat us!”
I nod. “So what do we do?”
“Start singing,” Robert whispers back.
I blink. “SING?! Sing what??!!”
Without replying, Robert begins to sing.
“Facing another day, gotta walk the line. Been dreaming of a getaway, waiting for the sign. Spinning my wheels, lately it feels like I’m treading water, treading water. She said, ‘Do you wanna come with me on a Friday night? We could be who we wanna be, under neon lights. There in the dark, where we can start to show all our colors, all our colors.'”
I join in, recognizing the song. We start walking backwards. The bobcat watches us, tail twitching, but not chasing us. As soon as we are out of seeing distance, we jog until we’re both out of breath.
“Whew! That was nerve-wrecking!”I exclaim, adreline running through yveins. I glance over at Amanda. Her face was pale and looked as if she was about to faint. She crumpled to the ground. I caught her before she collapsed.
“I should probably take her back to her cottage. So she told me it’s by Butterfly Creek. OK, let’s go,” I talked to myself.
I continue walking until I reach Butterfly Creek. I spot the cottage and walk up to it. I open it and lay her on her bed. I look around. It was a small cottage, but very stylish.
“Where am I?”
I turn around. Amanda is awake! I rush over to her. “You feeling better?”
I open my eyes slowly. I feel dazed, almost sick. ‘Where am I?”
I hear running footsteps. “You feeling better?” asks a concerned voice.
“Who are you?” I question.
“It’s me, Robert!” Robert replies, a little surprised, I think.
“What happened?” I ask.
“You fainted right after we escaped from that ferocious bobcat!” Robert explains.
“Well, thanks for rescuing me,” I reply with a smirk on my face.
“You’re welcome,” Robert answers with a hideous smirk on his face, too.
