The Sun had set and it was hard enough to see my own feet, let alone keep searching for Kelly. Why would she run off like this?
As much as I hate to admit it, I was actually feeling a bit scared. I had been to the lake before, but never this far out, and never at this time of night. Everything was unfamiliar, and without any means of direction I was starting to disorient myself.
I froze when the sound of crackling leaves caught my ear, “Kelly? Is that you?” I turned to face the noise, there was nothing. I started to call for her again, but something caught my eye, disappearing behind a bush.
“Kelly, don’t mess around.” I said peeking around the bush. To my surprise, I was met with an angry raccoon that after seeing me, took off up a tree. I sighed, mumbling softly before turning again to keep searching.
“BOO!” yelled Kelly, appearing out of nowhere. I’ll bet I sounded like a little schoolgirl as I screamed at the sound of her voice.
“Jesus, Kelly! What were you thinking!?”
“Payback!” She replied.
