Hello and welcome to this week's eight sentences. I am continuing with 'Patrick's Pendant' from the Yellow Silk Dream anthology 'Enchanted'. This week I have jumped ahead a few paragraphs and the girls have decided to walk to the main road from the park:
It was only a short walk, maybe 300 metres, but the trees grew denser and the leaves crackled beneath their heels. The wind seemed to have died down and everywhere was still, through the silence they could hear the low hoot of an owl.
The path that led away from the clearing and toward the road was barely visible in the dark, it was shaded by trees and covered with fallen leaves. The owl hooted again, closer this time. Katie, lost in her own thoughts paid no attention to their surroundings, but Miranda was becoming increasingly concerned.
“I can’t even see the road up ahead anymore!” she said.
“Don’t worry,” replied Katie, “It can’t be far now.”
They heard it together and stopped in their tracks.
