Heat #26

I may have slept. Don't know. My last few thoughts were weird, they didn't make sense. And when I looked around Archie was asleep but Doug was grinning.
"What?" I challenged him.
"You were talking in your sleep."
"I was? What did I say?"
"We need a sacrifice." Doug said it matter of factly, like it was a normal thing to say.
"What?"
"Yeah. 'We need a sacrifice' you said."
I frowned.
Somewhere behind us the motorway rumbled, like some huge beast growling in its sleep. And in front of us, the trees settled on their haunches, watching their prey.

    Fascinating... but I’m still completely lost in the woods!
