TWO CLOSE FRIENDS
Alice and Kim are both sixteen years old. They have been friends since first grade. They do almost everything together, homework, dancing lessons, basketball and they are on the phone as often as possible.
Alice is 5’10”tall, 120 lbs., very shapely. She has deep sky blue eyes, blonde hair down to her bra straps.
Kim is 5’6”tall, 105 lbs., a little thin but shapely. She has dark brown eyes, black shiny hair cut to her shoulders.
On the weekends they take walks in a nearby park. Sometimes they go jogging or bike riding. They love the outdoors with the beautiful flowers in the summertime. In the cold winter months they do indoor games and sports.
One beautiful May afternoon the sun was shining brightly and there was a slight spring breeze. A great day for a walk. The girls decided to go walking through the park.
Alice heard a rustling sound in some bushes nearby. Her eyes opened wide, her heart started to beat like the banging of drums, she stopped and put her hand against Kim’s chest to stop her from walking on. Alice then put her hands to her lips and motioned to Kim to be quiet.
They were scared but curious as most teenagers are. They tip toed toward the rustling sounds.
They held hands then stopped in their tracks, they couldn’t take another step. There were
eyes staring back at them from behind the bushes.
Screaming and running they didn’t want to stop but they did stop for a second to see if the person or animal was following them. They saw nothing so Alice got her nerve back and told Kim, “Let’s go back and see what it is.”
“Are you sure you want to go back?” Kim asked. She was still breathing heavy after running away.
“Yes, yes let’s go back; I won’t rest tonight if I don’t know what it is.”
The girls started back.
“If it’s a monster or something we would be dead already.” Kim said “It’s not funny as she looked toward the bushes. She went along with Alice and as they reached the area where the eyes were looking through the bushes they stopped quickly. They hesitated with each step getting closer and closer.
Alice spread the bushes with a stick she picked up along the way. As she opened the bushes slowly, “Oh.” She cried.
It’s a baby deer with a cut leg. “It couldn’t follow us when we screamed and ran. They went to the boathouse to report the injured deer so it wouldn’t suffer any longer than it had to.
The girls went back to wait with the deer until help came. They checked the deer once more and it was lying in the bushes looking at them with sad looking eyes. They started talking how hunters shoot these animals for sport.
After a few minutes help came and the girls went walking home.
