First Line Friday: The Click

1 Sep

When Sahi returned to The Ridge there was nothing left but charred wood jutting from the snow. 
Everyone was gone. Peter, Sarah, Nathan, they all just disappeared. 

What happened here? Where is everybody?  Sahi didn’t want to freak out yet. There must be an explanation. 

When Sahi left here, it was like another Sunday morning. Peter was in a good mood, so he decided to prepare breakfast for all of them. Sarah was still asleep and Nathan…wait a minute. Where was Nathan? His room was empty when Sahi left. He never went outside alone. He had this huge fear that he would get lost in the woods. But why was his room empty? Where did he go? 

Sahi wanted to call Peter, but there was no signal in this area. She was practically all alone staring in disbelief on the burned wood. When she wanted to get closer look and made a step towards the burned place, she heard steps approaching her. Nathan! 

“Nathan? Oh, thank god you are here! What happened here? Where is evereyone?…Nathan? Are you…?”
“Sahi, strange thing happened here. Actually I woke up in a very good mood. But then…”
“Nathan, why is there blood on your face?”
The silence that followed could cut the air around them.

“I wish you wouldn’t ask, Sahi.”
