It was the fresh morning of Westfield Lake where the birds chirped, the sun set bright and it was a perfect morning just like a fairy-tale. Claire, Mark, and Tiffany were all ready to go to an old friend’s house, Tom that lived 3 hours away from Westfield Lake. They were really looking forward to this day and were so excited they hardly could take off the big smile from their face all day long!
“I’m so excited!” exclaimed Claire.
“Me too. I can’t wait to get there!” said Tiffany.
So, to not waste anymore time, Mark turned on the car.
They all jumped in the car and turned on the music to full blast and turned on the air conditioner later on he way. They sang along with the music and couldn’t wait for this 3 hour drive to end. Soon they were halfway to Tom’s house, till they got a flat tire. Luckily Mark knew how to fix flat tires. Once it was ready he jumped back into the car and said, “Everything is ready we can now get going.” Then it was just their bad luck day that the car wouldn’t turn on. Mark tried so many times then at last he gave up and knew that the car wouldn’t turn on again. Mark jumped all over the place, screamed out loud, and got super red! He screamed, “WHY, WHY DOES THIS HAVE TO HAPPEN!” It was 117 degrees in the desert. The desert was burning hot like a stove and the worst part of all, the desert was very humid. They didn’t have any water, no food, and now no air for them to get cool.
“It’s so hot!” exclaimed Claire.
“Nah it’s so cold!” Tiffany said sarcastically.
“We are going to have to wait for soeone to hopefully come and give us a ride home.” Mark said.
It looked like if the sun got darker and bigger. The weather got hotter and it seemed like if it went up 100 degrees though it only went up 2 degrees. Claire fell down to the floor hot and exhausted. The day passed very slow till finally it became night and the moon glowed very bright. It didn’t make so much of a difference from the heat, but they stayed in the car to sleep.
It was finally morning and it was their lucky day. A car was coming and all three of them waved their hands back and forth. The car just drove along like if they were invisible.
“It is our bad luck day and tomorrow it will be and the day after that and the day after that and the…….We get it Claire said Tiffany.” “We ALL know that it is our bad luck days so please don’t talk about it.” “Maybe it isn’t overall.” Yelled Mark. Look said Mark. There was a red car coming their way. They yelled out desperately, but then again the car just ignored them like if they were invisible.
“Yeah you got my hopes up,Mark” Claire wailed. “I never thought I would die so soon! I still wanted to travel the world. What did I ever do wrong!” She shed a few tears and said,”Just shoot me already!”
“Well” Mark began ” We can’t just stay like this forever and starve to death because I’m hungry.”
“So what do you want us to do about it”, Claire said in a low voice.
“Well…….umm you’re not going to like the idea but we are going to have to hunt like human-beings back then in order to survive.”
“Hunt?” Tiffany and Claire shrieked.
Then later Mark volunteered to do the hunting and try to get tools from his car to kill any kind of animal. Mark left at night with a flashlight and a wrench, and some other tools along with him, to kill some animals out in the desert. Hourse had passed and Mark was not back.
“What if Mark got eaten by a coyote or any other type of animal.” “What if he got bit by a snake and didn’t get any food and now we have to go hunt and then we have to survive on our own and what if something happened to us and what if…….Claire, Mark should be alright and he should be back by no time.”
It seemed like more hours had passed and Mark was still not back! It was really dark, almost black. The big bright moon was the only light for them to see around. The desert was filled with different noises. You can hear the wolf howling and the owl hooting. The desert smelled like dry cactuses and still Mark was not back.
“Ok Claire I guess we will after all have to look for Mark because there is a possibility that he is dead so we have to find him.”
“What if Mark is dead?” Claire asked.
“Let’s not think negative but if we find him dead our only choice is to eat him.”
“Gross! Tiffany, I’m not a cannibal and plus I am hungry, but I wouldn’t eat a person. Are you crazy!”
“We have no other choice, now follow me.”
They both went around the desert looking for Mark but they had no idea where they were heading. They yelled out for Mark but there was no sign of him. They saw some animals like a rabbit they could have killed but that wasn’t their main point to go around the desert. At a point Claire tought she heard Mark because Claire heard some kind of strange noise like if something was folloing them. Claire heard footsteps and something like a raw noise but very soft.
“What was that?” Asked Claire.
“What was what?” Asked Tiffany.
“It sounded like if something was following us.”
“You are hearing things Claire because I didn’t hear anything.”
Claire heard the noise when they were walking but then the strange noise stopped when they stopped. Then all of a sudden Claire and Tiffany both turned around and stared at the creature for a second and soon realized the creature was a coyote. The coyote was big, brown, buff and scary, even with his teeth popping out to bite something. Claire could hear the beat of her heart racing as fast as a cheetah. Tiffany said to not move and next thing you know she said to run as fast as she can. They ran for their lives but then Tiffany hit a tree and fell to the ground!!!
“NOOOOO, don’t do this to me Tiffany!!!!!”
Claire grabbed Tiffany and tried to run with her and soon Claire made it to a tree and tried very hard to climb it up. Luckily Claire had been working out in the gym so she was strong enough. Claire tried to do everything to wake up Tiffany and at last Tiffany woe up confused.
“Where am I?”
“Don’t worry about it, are you feeling better?”
Then Tiffany was wide awake and was alert. They looked everywhere to make sure the coyote was gone and he was. They went down the tall tree very slow and quiet. Then they started to look for Mark. Finally at last they found Mark dead bleeding everywhere on the ground. The sand was now filled with blood. There was so much blood on the ground it seemed like the sand was actually the color red. Clair started to cry aloud and Tiffany did the exact same thing. Claire and Tiffany couldn’t do anything without him! They both left Mark lying on the ground and headed back to the car crying. Both of them didn’t say a single word on their way to the car. Once Claire and Tiffany reached the car, they entered and quickly fell asleep. Finally it was the morning where the birds chirped, the sun set bright, and it was a perfect morning just like a fairy-tale. Claire had just woke up from a terrible dream where she was lost in a desert with her two other friends. Claire got ready to go to an old friend’s house Tom that lived 3 hours away from Westfield Lake. Once Claire, Mark, and Tiffany were prepared they went inside the car. Their mom’s wished them all good luck because they would need it.
