Eyes

“Psst! Come with me. There is something I want to show you.” It was still dawn and the sun hasn’t yet risen. They crept slowly through the shadowy woods, taking extreme care not to make any noise. The younger one started getting anxious. “You know we are not allowed to go this deep into the […]
