Steal this and I'll melt your head. >:D

All it took was one butterfly. One butterfly to distract me, and lead me
away from the group, not to mention get me lost.
Now away from the rest of my classmates, the teacher, and the hike leader, I was
completely lost. The trail was nowhere to be seen, and I could hear nothing but the
soft chirp of the birds and the occasional crack of a twig I stepped on.
"Helloooo! Anyone here?" I hollered. My only reply was the echo of my own voice. This
was great. Lost in the middle of a forest, with nightfall only an hour away. I was
pretty much doomed.
I wandered around for awhile, hoping I was headed in the general direction of the
path. Once I thought I heard someone, but it just turned out to be a bunny, nibbling
some grass on the lush forest floor. Stay positive, I told myself, Stay
positive, stay positive, stay- Just as I was going to finish my sentence, the
grey clouds that had been looming overhead broke loose. Heavy rain drops splattered
down to Earth, and onto my skin. What a great idea, wearing only a T shirt and
"You guys, where are you?" I was screaming now, panicking as the wind grew stronger,
the rain grew heavier, and the sky grew darker. I was honestly terrified. In the
movies the lost heroes always suddenly found a compass, or remembered that moss grew
on the North of trees, but I couldn't even see the trees. Bam.
"Ouch!" There's one.
It was now pouring, thundering, like all hell had broken loose. I was almost crying,
not that you would be able to tell with all the raindrops splattering on my face.
Suddenly, I heard the sound of feet.
"Thank god. Thank god." I sobbed, walking towards the sound. I could now faintly see
the figure. It was tall, and quite big. None of the kids were that big, and the
teacher and hike guide were quite short. In fact the figure didn't look human at all,
with it's round ears, giant paws, and little bear tail. BEAR TAIL? I had no idea what
to do, so I did what anyone in the situation would have done. I screamed as loud as I
could, and took off in the other direction. Bam.
Oh hey, another tree... I thought as I fell towards the ground. Hard.
