"-Happened?" I hear a snippet of Milo's voice through the overlapping sounds of feet pounding against earth and panicked voices. One minute we were having a perfectly pleasant day at the County Fair and the next we were being pushed into the woods at the outskirts of the fairgrounds by a flood of people.
"Just keep running!" I shout to Milo, who gives me a determined nod. By some silent agreement, Milo and I veer out of the crazed stampede and fight through the woods into an open clearing. I apprehensively look around and notice we're surrounded by a thick wall of foliage and trees. Suddenly, a figure comes out of the bushes and says in a raspy voice,
"Come with me children, I will take you someplace safe." With no better options and no idea what we are running from, Milo and I follow the person warily.
