((Tiffany Baker continued from The Worst Gun in the Game))

Trees everywhere. Whichever way Tiffany looked, there were always more trees. She could not understand how some people could find spending time out in place full of trees to be fun. This was worse than the only time Peter brought her along on one of his hiking trips. At least then there were other people there to talk to while hiking. The silence of the woods had kept Tiffany on edge, as she looked for other people.

Suddenly, the surrounding trees gave way to fallen logs and large tree stumps. At least it's a change of scenery, Tiffany thought to herself as she stepped over a particularly large log. She walked a bit farther, before deciding to take a break on a tree stump. A water bottle was procured from the daypack and she took a few gulps of water from one of the bottles of water. Not that she needed the refreshment, but at least she was doing something besides walking.

Then she heard the voices. She couldn't see who it came from, but she definitely heard it. Packing up her things, she tried to pick out the direction from which it was coming from. About a hundred or so yards away, she could make out a short stocky boy standing by a mess of stumps. At the distance, she couldn't tell who it was though. She needed to get closer, to figure who that was and whether or not she could trust him. Maybe he could help her find Peter.

She tried to make her step light as she weaved between tree stumps, taking care to keep her head down so as to not get noticed. Along the way, she passed a few stumps that had some stickers on them although she didn't pay them much mind.

It wasn't until she had gotten closer that she saw the wicked looking claws that the boy was holding. The last thing Tiffany wanted was any sort of conflict, and weapons were a good lead-in to conflict. She stopped and started to slowly back away so she could observe for a little while longer. With all her focus spent on the boy in front of her, she missed the fallen branches behind her.

The loud snap of a breaking branch under her feet threw Tiffany into a state of panic. She had found it funny before how those sounds were so loud in movies. It wasn't funny now. She dropped her bag and ran behind the nearest stump and curled up behind it to hide. Maybe nobody heard. Hopefully nobody heard.
