Cornflower’s New Name – p.4

July 8, 2011 at 5:28 pm 2 comments

In the woods, Cornflower hunted for food. She found plenty of blackberries and considered a small patch of mushrooms, but decided she preferred the sweetness of the berries. They helped her feel a bit better. She made a game of walking through the dappled sunlight, sticking to the shaded parts of the path, never letting the light touch her. Soon she was laughing at herself as she wobbled and weaved, balancing on one bare foot and then the other.

She did not notice how far she had come until the game became very easy to play, and all the streams of light were finally gone. The trees around her were very thick and close, and it was dim and cool. Standing still, Cornflower listened. High above there were the sounds of birds, and she could hear the movements of small animals in the leaf litter on the forest floor, but otherwise all was silent.

She spun around, trying to get a sense of her direction, but without the sun in the sky she was lost. She’d been staring down at the ground playing her game and now had no idea from which direction she’d come. She began to feel a bit dizzy. Cornflower did not panic, at least not until she noticed the large spider that had silently lowered itself on a thin string of silk, and hung just in front of her face.
