Chapter 3:

Chapter 03 Never Ending

The Forest of Lost Dreams

Sarah was lying in bed with her cat Luna curled up next to her, but it didn't feel right, When Sarah turned to her cat Luna for comfort, she saw a horrifying scene. 

Luna's body was twisted and contorted in unnatural ways. Her eyes were wide open, staring at Sarah with a look of terror and pain. Blood was dripping from her mouth, and her fur was matted with it. Sarah could feel her stomach turn, and she retched, barely managing to hold back the vomit.

 As she turned away, trying to process the horrifying image she had just seen, she noticed a figure standing next to her bed. The man had red, glowing eyes that pierced through the darkness. Sarah tried to scream, but no sound came out of her mouth. She could feel her body shaking with fear, and she was paralyzed with terror. The man didn't move, but he just stood there, staring at her with his glowing eyes. Sarah blinked, and when she opened her eyes again, the man was gone.

Sarah sat up in her bed, her heart racing from the vivid nightmare she just had. In her dream, a man with red glowing eyes had been standing at the foot of her bed, staring at her with a menacing grin. But now, as she looked around her quiet and empty apartment, she reminded herself that it was just a dream. She was alone in her room, with Luna sleeping peacefully next to her.

 Still, she couldn't shake off the feeling of unease that lingered. She got out of bed and walked over to the window, drawing back the curtains to peer outside. The street below was deserted, with not a soul in sight. 

 As she made her way to the kitchen to start her day, Sarah tried to convince herself that the nightmare was just a product of her overactive imagination. But as the day wore on, she couldn't help but feel that something was off.

 She decided to go for a walk to clear her head and get some fresh air. As she walked down the street, she noticed that the usually busy neighborhood was eerily quiet. The stores and restaurants were all closed, and there was not a single car on the road.

 Sarah's unease grew with each step, and she quickened her pace to get back to her apartment. But as she turned the corner, she saw something that made her blood run cold - the man from her dream, standing at the end of the street with his red glowing eyes fixed on her.

 She froze in terror, unsure of what to do. The man started walking towards her, his steps slow and deliberate. He had no face, a dark shadow was covering it only his red eyes were glowing brightly. Sarah's mind raced as she turn around for an escape route, but to her surprise, she was surrounded by the forest with no alleys or side streets. She wasn't in town anymore. 

 As the man drew closer, Sarah could see that his face was twisted into a grotesque grin, his eyes glowing brighter and brighter. She knew she had to act fast, so she turned and sprinted in the opposite direction, her heart pounding in her chest.

 After what felt like hours of wandering around the forest she found an abandoned building, it looked just like her home. She fumbled for her keys, her hands shaking with fear. As she unlocked the door and stepped inside, she could feel the man's presence lingering outside. She locked the door behind her and sank to the ground, tears streaming down her face. 

 Sarah knew she had to do something, but she didn't know what. She couldn't stay trapped in her apartment forever, but she also couldn't face the man with the red glowing eyes alone.
