You Fake It

I was taking a walk down by the woods when I hear the strangest sound. I turn around to look for the source, but don't see anything. So I continue with my walk.

I walk about ten feet when I hear it again. This time I make out what it is saying. It is saying "You fake it."

It frightens me. I walk a little faster, trying to get away from whatever those words came from. My steps seem slow, so I try to go even faster, but I end up tripping over a hole in the ground. I fall on my face and am sure I must have bruised it.

I get to my feet and brush myself off. That is when I hear, "You fake it" from a nearby tree. That is when I took off running. I ran as fast as my legs would carry me.

I am running in the direction of my house. I am running when something hits me from behind and knocks me to the ground.

I try crawling away, but I freeze when I hear, "You fake it." I roll over onto my back. I don't see anything, but know there is. "Where could it be?" I wonder. I slowly get to my feet. I hear it say, "You fake it" again. I can't stand it anymore, so I take off running again. This time nothing stops me, so I reach my home in safety.
