Ann watched as another figure jumped out of the car. She picked up her bag and quickly and quietly moved towards the person that had jumped out of the vehicle. It was Mr. Julius sitting with his head in his hands in a clearing.

“You ok?” asked Ann as she crouched down beside him.

“I think I knocked my head,’ replied Mr. Julius as he lost conscious.

Just as Ann looked up she saw someone moving towards them carrying a metal pole. She frantically looked around and found a big stick and pulled Mr. Julius under a brownish-green, leafy shrub. He was completely under with her bag, when a twig snapped about fifty metres away. Ann grabbed the stick and climbed up a few branches, she was on one of the thick branches no higher than four metres off the ground.

 

She edged down the branch until she was about halfway then stopped and held her breath. The figure had walked into the clearing and was underneath her. She saw it was a woman. Ann watched as she looked around. As she took a step, Ann dropped from the tree swinging the stick like a sword and hitting her in the shoulder. The woman turned around to see Ann holding the stick, ready to attack again.

“Nice hit little girl,” said the lady as she rubbed the point of impact.

“Who are you and what do you want with us?” gulped Ann as she moved her stick back for another strike.
