The blue eyed blond hair girl pulled herself up and sat against the wall of the cave. She took a deep breath and closed her eyes. How long would she keep running, she couldn’t stay in the cave forever. Elizabeth clenched her stomach as it growled. She tried to move her ankle, but instead she groaned with pain.
Elizabeth peered outside the cave to watch the rain fall. She watched tree branches and leaves being swept away by the savage wind. Her eyes swelled up with tears. How long would she keep running? How was she going to survive?
She looked up at the ceiling of the cave. Her eyelids began to close and she let out a low yawn. Before she knew it, she had dosed off in the little cave.
Elizabeth woke up to the crisp sound of birds chirping and playing in the newly made puddles from that night. She tried to move her ankle, but it was no use. Her ankle was all twisted up and swollen, and the cut up her leg stung with pain.
“I’m going to die!” she thought with horror. “I am going to die out here and be eaten by a bear or a pack of wolves!”
The girl looked outside of the cave. She turned her head from side to side to see if she could find any food or something that might help her survive. She peered around when something caught the corner of her eye. There, lying in one of the puddles was a Y shaped stick.
“I could use it as a crutch!” she thought with delight.
Quickly she started to drag herself towards the stick. Her dress was covered in mud, and her left sleeve was torn off. Elizabeth grabbed the stick tightly and tried to pull herself up with it. Thud! She fell on her side as she tried to pull herself up. She tried it again. Thud! It was no use! Tears swelled up in her eyes. The pain in her leg and ankle were getting stronger by the minute. Elizabeth buried her head in her arms as she cried.
After crying for quite some time she felt something brush against her ear. She froze and a chill went down her spine. She felt something wet and warm rub across her ear again. Her heart was pounding and she couldn’t breathe. Tears rolled down her cheeks in horror and fear. She heard a low growl, and more and more tears came streaming down.
“This is the end.” She thought. “It’s all over! I never should have ran away!”
She let out some air slowly, and decided that she had to turn around. She slowly rotated to her right side and sat up. She was face to face with a big gray wolf!
