Death in the Forest

by Ann Patras
Originally published by on 30/09/2018

There was an unfamiliar stirring in the forest. From some way off, the young sapling could hear strange murmurs that steadily grew into laughter. She thought it was good that someone was enjoying the forest.

But as the sounds got closer, she sensed a menacing undertone to the laughter. A discomforting chill exuded from the deep voices that generated a cruel sense of excitement.

Suddenly there was a scream. A piercing scream so loud it embraced the entire forest. Even the solid, lichen-covered trunks of the largest trees could not mute nor subdue the screaming machine.

The deforestation had begun.
