Elliot, a boy about twelve years of age, ran through the Forest of Dreams, the forest nearest his village, and a beautiful one as well. Elliot wore a regular, dusty brown tunic, with baggy brown pants and shoes made of Unicorn Hide. He chased the Glowflies, big dragonflies with a bigger, blue rump that glows. In the trees grew Glowfruit, which resembled the rumps of Glowflies, but were smaller and edible. Elliot halted as the Glowflies flew into the crowded leaves of the Glowfruit trees and out of sight. He saw a group of goblins moving through the forest, carrying the body of a girl with a white dress.
Elliot ran as fast he could, his dusty brown hair sweeping his face, sometimes obstructing his view. He glanced behind for a moment, seeing the goblins following him. He turned around to find his village in his view. He would be safe in his house.
He shut the door behind him as he entered his house.
“Mom, dad! There’s goblins heading towards our village! They’re carrying a girl with a white dress!”
Elliot’s mom and dad panicked.
“Don’t worry, Elliot. They’re probably just passing by.”
That’s what they thought, until there was a knock at their door.
