Jenna headed for the jungle leaving Mrs. Montogomery unattended who was still trying to speak something but felt a lump in her throat. Jane was almost running on the muddy track. She could clearly listen her heart beats while she was huffing and puffing to catch her breath. She was breathing from her mouth which went dry. Unable to walk more her sweating body bent on a nearby tree’s trunk to halt for sometime. She closed her eyes, tried to close her mouth. She opened her eyes to look around. The Forest was actually a crooked grove of oddly shaped pine trees grown with a 90 degree bend at the base of their trunks. All of the trees were bent northward and surrounded by a larger forest of straight-growing pine trees. The crooked trees trunks were covered with ginger-brown climbers entangled in branches. As the rush of fresh air filled her lungs, she moved ahead to find the children.
