so, as i promised...

In this story, Moriah and I, who are both becoming actresses, seriously pretend we are in a movie, we were both thinking it, and so we acted as if we were, back in the old day when people held people for ransom! It was scary, and fun.

   The next story consists of a rather creepy experince, for me and Moriah... Moriah's cousins, Blake and Shane were there, they are both really great guys, I enjoyed meeting them, and well, this whole situation started with Moriah and I were walking around the reenactment, all dressed up, hair done, and looking pretty [grin] and we were going into store tents, and looking around.
   Now, to get this situation clear, Moriah, is an extremely smart and talented, and beautiful, and very Godly young lady, who I respect a lot. but when I say 'smart' I mean smart. now I can detect if someone is staring at me, i can feel it, and to be honest, i usually get scared. well, Moriah is the same way, she can sense, feel, and know if someone is looking at us, (more like staring at us) and she can point out the exact spot. which is amazing to me, and she can also think like Sherlock Holmes, which is rather creepy. she'll do anything to protect anyboy, even if it is her worst enemy. that is what I love her for.
   She is also very skillful when it comes to thinking and devising plans. she can get you out of nearly any situation, and she is brave, honest, hot tempered, and amazing, i mean.... it is not ofeten you come across a girl as wonderful as she is!
   Well, on with the story, she felt someone following us, and she pulled me into the shadows, and glanced around.
   "Olivia... did you feel that?"
   "Someone is following us."
   "Why would they be following us?"
   "I don't know."
   I scanned our surroundings, and then clutched Moriah, "there he is... he is staring directly as us."
   "Ok. this is creepy, we have got to get back to camp." she grabbed my hand, and pulled me towards camp, where Shane was sitting, with Moriah's dad.

  "Hey Olivia, want to go on a nature walk?!" Moriah asked.
  "Hey Shane, can you escort us?"
  "Because we want you too." I answered, truthfully. I didn't want to go anywhere alone with Moriah now, because that guy was here.
  "Alright, whatever." He replies. 
  "Thanks!" We smiled. 
  We get to the trenches (where that leads into the nature walk. These trenches are historically dug by real Confederate soldiers, and they attacked the Yankees. 
  "Hey let's go into the woods." Moriah suggested. 
  "OK. Sure!" I reply. We walk in there, and Moriah starts to talk about how beautiful the woods are. 
  "Olivia! This is beautiful! Just imagine.... Acting in a movie in these woods. It would be perfect! Imagine Lady Carliss (from a book) running through here, sword drawn, men after her. She dashes through the woods and disapears. I want to act in a movie now, in these woods." 
  I laugh, 'me too... Imagine being Talea, with um... What's his name? Cedric! Imagine doing to practice fight scene in these woods!' 
  'Would you two just shut up?' Shane asks. He is behind us, swinging his Tamahawk. 
  We both laugh and I lean towards Moriah. 'Lets run up ahead, he is pretty far behind, and we can outrun him!' 
  'Sure!' Moriah bursts into laughter and starts to run, I follow, laughing! We run by mud puddles, and trees seem to whiz past. 
  'Alright! I'm done!' I gasp after running for a while. Shane has caught up with us, and we reach the end of the woods. He says, 'whelp. Let's go back!' And turns around. And starts to run ahead. 
  Moriah and I walk, he is now jumping out and ambushing us with his Tamahawk. Needless to say we were all having a blast! 
  We reach the edge of the woods and get back on the nature trail. And we come upon another clearing in the woods. 
  'Well, girls, do you want to go this way?' 
  'Sure.' Moriah replies. 
  And just for an input, Shane's ankle is sprained, because he was playing basketball and he fell, and this was only the day before, and at the moment, he is running up and down hills, through the woods... Just being a guy... Which was bothering Moriah because she was afraid he was going to break his ankle, as was I. 
  He disapears ahead of us, and then starts running. 
  Moriah laughs, 'here comes another ambush!' 
  I laugh, and we continue to walk, and no ambush comes. We continue talking. Until suddenly I notice something rather strange. 
 'Moriah... Listen.' I said putting my fingers to my mouth. 
  'What?' She asks after a few moments. 
'I don't hear anything.' 
  'Thats the point.' I reply. 'No birds, no wind through the trees....' My voice trails off, ' and no Shane.' 
  'Yeah... What's wrong?' She asks. 
  'I don't know, but I'm getting the feeling something is desperately wrong here.' 
  'SHANE!' She yells. 
  There's no answer. My heart beats fast, and I get a sickening feeling in my stomach. 'SHANE!' I yell. 
  Again. No answer, we come to a small hill, and run down the slope, and then back up, we reach a fork in the trail. There's a left, and a right, both leading very opposite directions. 
  'What do we do?' I ask. 
  'I have no idea.' 
  'Split up. We'll make a signal. If either of us find Shane, we'll yell it, and then. The other will know.' 
  'It will work, but I'm not sure if we should split up. Remember. This could be a trap, and that man could have taken Shane or something, and holding him waiting for us to come.' 
  'That's right, we are  staying together.' I said, clutching her hand. 
  'My thoughts exactly.' she replies. 'Lets go left.' 
  'Alright.' We turn, and walk a through the woods. 'What do you think happened to him?' 
  'I don't know, but he can take care of himself.' 
  'But we might not be able too.' I reply. 
  'True. We have got to find him.' 
  We come to a bridge. And we both stop. Moriah advanced, and began to cross. Where she stood silently. I stayed on the opposite side. Staring at the entrance. I hear something move under it. I stood frozen. I could barely talk, 'Moriah.... What's under the bridge?' 
  'What is under the bridge, there is something there.' 
  Moriah walks over to me, 'I have no idea, but I hear it too.' 
  'Moriah.. I can't cross that bridge, I can't move.' 
  'Olivia, snap out of it.' She commands. 
  'Moriah, I can't.' 
  'Yes, here,' she grabs my hand, and pulls me, I stood still, as if in a trance. It was terrible for both of us, and embarrassing for me. She pulls me harder and forces me across the bridge. 
 'Now Olivia, before anyone finds out, not to scare you, but sometime homeless people hide in these woods. Why don't you-' she whispers this, 'tuck your money into your waist.' 
  I nod, and do so, and then follow her, holding my water bottle. 
 'Oh great, darn it, we are on a dune.' She sighs. 'We have for to get off.' She said. She runs to the edge. 'Quick, someone is coming, go down.' 
  'But it is the steepest!' 
  'Yes, but you have to go.' She replies 
  'Ok,' I clutch my water bottle, then turn and grabs Moriahs, and her purse, and then mine, and I threw them to the bottom, and then I took a step and tumbled down the dune. I got to the bottom and stood. Moriah started to step off, but I take a couple of steps up and grab her hand, 'c'mon, it will be safer.' 
  She gets down safely, and grabs her purse, 'thanks.' 
  We go to the edge, where the entrance and exit to the nature walk is. 
  'SHANE!' We both yell at the same time. 
  No reply. 
  'I hope he is just joking.' Moriah says. 
  'I do too, but it is possible he isn't, we have got to get help.' 
  'Yes. Just a couple of guys, to start looking. No one else.' 
  'But if word gets around, we can be kicked off the reenactment.' 
  'But think about Shane, what if he isn't joking.' 
  'You're right.' She takes another look around, 'this is like a movie where all the friends start disappearing, but it isn't happening to you.' She grabs my hand. 
  'We have to tell someone.' 
  'Alright, we walk towards our camp, and Shane appears out of nowhere. 
  'I'm sorry. I had to do something!' 
  'But we were worried sick about you!' I said. 
  He laughs, 'I said I was sorry!' 
  We started throwing walnuts at him, and we run back to camp. And give our report on what happened, then we head about a 1/2 mile back to where the camper was set up. On the way there, Moriah and I talked thoroughly to Shane about what happened, and what could have happened. He began to realize how dangerous that situation could have been. 
  'Im sorry.' 
  'Its fine.' I reply. We get to the camper. And Moriah tells her mom, who got very very upset. 
  Blake (who is going to become a preacher... Did I already say that?) takes him outside, and tells him a couple of things, and Shane asks to talk to us alone. 
  'Hey Moriah. And Olivia. I'm sorry, I shouldn't have done that. Will you forgive me?' 
  'Yes, we will.' I said. 
  Shane leans over and gives Moriah a hug. Then looks at me, I laughed, and leaned over to give him a hug, which I felt was necessary in that situation. 
  Overall it was a very scary situation, and I'm thankful that nothing serious happened! And now a few pictures!!! 

Blake, Moriah and me. 

Moriah and me just before I left. Don't get us wrong, we were both sobbing our heads off. 

That's all!
