The Surprise Encounter
As I walked over to my tent in the camp, I saw a long curly thing on the ground. As I jumped backward, it quickly uncoil itself and started moving towards me. 'A snake!" I screamed but I was too scared to run. Quickly, a thought came into me to run. I had no choice than to obey and I started running. I ran swiftly without looking back.
I ran through the prickly bushes and jumped over the fallen dead trees. Suddenly I saw a Range Rover parked in the woods I saw a ranger inside the car and I knew that was my only chance of escape. I reached the jeep and quickly knocked on the window. The ranger was sleeping and quickly woke up with a jerk. He opened the door and let me in. He asked me what I was doing in the woods and i narrated my ordeal to him. He took me back to my camp, i packed all my things and asked the ranger to take me home. When I got home, I was so tired, the event of the day overwhelmed me. I went straight my room and laid on the bed. Immediately I was sound asleep.
