The Girl in Time: A Short Story

The summer holiday was supposed to be a peaceful break from the long college year, but it didn’t quite work out that way for Becky. Her mother’s cottage was on the edge of a mysterious forest where strange lights and shapes shimmered above the tree tops at night, and dead animals littered the forest floor the next day. The locals blamed the nearby military base, but were unknown sinister forces at work here?

Walking through the forest one morning she bumps into a peculiar stranger and is plunged into a struggle for survival. A nightmare world far removed from her own.

Will the mystery of the forest reveal itself? Will she ever see home again?

A short story.
