Scary Setting Text
by Devon Stokes-Bennett
It is the silence you notice first. The silence and then the whispers scratching their way through it, teasing the straining ear as the mind struggles to deny what instinct knows well. As you turn back to your task, pretending to yourself that it is just the wind playing tricks, you notice the deepening dusk creeping in around you like a long sinuous snake tightening its coils. It is then and only then that you feel the wind brushing your skin with a light cold touch, a snake’s tongue darting in and out, tasting your flesh. Tree trunks become dark bars to your thickening cage as their roots crawl toward you across the forest floor, seeking a stray limb to latch onto. The thundering silence pounds into your brain only to be broken by the faint hiss of autumn leaves stirred by the still lurking breeze. The smooth plastic of your tent pole slips through fingers slick with sweat and you taste blood from your bitten bottom lip.
