The Man Who Would Be Tree! Part 2 of 2
"Alright, guys, just a passage through these woods and we'll be free to go" said some punk teenager
"Yeah, nobody will ever know it was us who stole all there..."
"SHUT UP!" yelled the teenager "You dont want them to know it was us!"
Suddenly, they heard a large growling noise.
"Uuuh, guys?" One teenager was really freaked out "Did you guys hear thAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAH!!!!!"
"Oh, God, Drake?!"
"Guys, we gotta get outta these wooooOOOOAAAAAAAAH!!!"
The teenagers tried to run, but one by one they were disappearing into the darkness. Screams everywhere. DARKNESS everywhere.
"RRRRRG!" A huge moaning noise came from everywhere.
"Listen, man" one teenager said "We're sorry, here, take our stuff!"
"I'm not sure a man's in the woods" he said "I think this man IS the woods!"
Suddenly, only one was left.
"G-g-guys? H-h-hello?" He was all alone, and suddenly, two, glowing, red eyes opened up from the darkness.
It stared at him for a minute or two, then finally...
The teenager took off, screaming, his heart pounding so fast it almost skipped a few beats.
That morning at town hall...
"Yeah, we were just messing around, then we went into the woods, and then we starting hearing growling noises. Then it got DRAKE!" explained the only survivor of the incident.
"What did it look like?" One person asked.
"It was... like, um, the woods were alive.. it wasn't human, thats for sure."
"This Man-Tree will be caught!" said the mayor.
"Me and my boys'll kill it!" yelled Ace The Lumberjack, standing up.
"How?" yelled some lady.
"It killed my son!" yelled another person.
"Hey, it's a tree" he said "And we're lumberjacks...."
"Get your axes ready, men" said Ace, swinging his axe around "We're gonna kill these woods"
Suddenly, the woods started rumbling.
"Aaaah!" A branch came out and wrapped around one lumberjacks leg, pulling him into the darkness.
Then another branch, then another, until it was down to only 4 lumberjacks left.
"Kill it!!!!" yelled Ace, chopping down several trees and several branches.
"Aaaah!" a huge, rough, wooden hand pulled Ace toward the darkness, but Ace grabbed his axe and chopped off the arm.
"GRRRR!" The branches got Ace's men, pulling e'm back.
"We're the last 3 standing" said Ace "We can do this."
Suddenly, the Man-Tree revealed himself
"KILL IT!" One guy yelled, jumping in the air and trying to chop its head off. However, the lumberjack just fell, and Man-Tree caught him, then threw him into the air.
"Run!" Ace and his last thug left ran off, but a branch tried to catch them. It only managed to catch the thug, and pulled him into the darkness.
"Oh, God!!!" Ace slid into the swamp, and ran out to safety.
"Ace.. what happened out there?" asked the Mayor.
"That... that ugly face... those red glowing eyes. The woods... themself, they started shaking and rumbling!" explained Ace.
"Well, we gotta get him SOMEHOW!" said the Mayor.
"I think I have an idea..."
