Where Are They?

“Where did they go?”

During the early afternoon, the rest of the group had moved on ahead of us.

“You should have told us you were not fit enough to do this hike. We are losing time waiting for you!”

They had left in anger, showing no empathy for the pain I was feeling in my injured leg. Ben had walked with me to the ruins, chatting about this and that. With the sun beating down on my head and the small breeze cooling me off, I had been content.

We had arrived at the ruins about two hours after the others. Looking around, we had expected to see them setting up camp. An ominous silence had greeted us instead.

“Come on guys, quit fooling around. You are scaring us!”

We never did find them. The ruins have now been labelled haunted.

  1. Definitely a time warp, they have been transported back in time before the buildings had become ruins, they are now living in the late 1700’s, they can see you but you appear as a ghost to them in their time, you are the one who is now haunting their settlement and buildings.
