2. Chapter 2
The strangers were a grey colour, and were not very gentle with any of the three of us. Sandy (the dog) acted like a coward, but I soon gave them what for! They dropped us and ran as sharp pointy thing flew out of nowhere at them.
Another load of ugly creatures came out of the trees. Helen had woken up by that point and decided to run for it. She called Sandy to her, picked me up and ran.
We ran straight into the nearest group of trees, where we were faced with a third bunch of arrows. One was accidentally fired and it went straight into Helen. Helen fell with a groan and didn’t get up again.
One of the strange people muttered something in a strange language before picking Helen up and carrying her away. Another person stayed behind to get me and Sandy. Not surprisingly, Sandy acted like a coward. She ran away, trying to get away from the strangers.
