Here’s my attempt for this week:
Darlene paused to catch her breath, she had come to a realization – whatever presence it was that had been observing her as she made her way through the woods, might now be pursuing her but she wasn’t going to out run it.
For a moment she filtered through her options, which were few and then she smiled. It was time to turn tables on her pursuer. Dodging behind a nearby tree she waited, trying to still her beating heart so she could listen to their approach.
It seemed an age and then she heard them, she remained motionless and as they passed by she jumped – landing right in the mud and sinking. Her heart lurched and she looked up to see him racing forward and then he was upon her. Max, her dog, was wagging his tail frantically. Darlene laughed relieved, unaware of the figure that approached from behind.
And here’s last week’s participants:

“Carla, you can do this. You’re a big girl now. Mommy loves you.”
“But it looks very big and scary and the trees are too tall!”
“Well, I can’t make it smaller for you nor cut the trees, but I know you’re gonna be fine if you. Just. Take. That first step forward. I’m right behind you.” Wiping the tears from her rosy cheeks.
