TITLE: Jace Folsom - Exctinction
GENRE: Middle Grade Adventure-Fantasy
At that moment the unknown man turned his head and stared directly at where they stood. He had two distinctly different eyes; one was dark green and the other, an iridescent yellow. They were not eyes you typically saw on a person. They were too large, without any whites. They were more like what you would see on a deer. His face was roughly attractive with jagged cheekbones, and a protruding chin. Short, blonde bangs lined his forehead, that turned gradually into dark auburn down his back.
Standing absolutely frozen, both boys did not breathe. For what felt like hours, they did not move. Finally, the person turned his head back toward the ground, and continued his search.
Without a sound, Jace mouthed to Tyler hysterically "We have got to get out of here now." Jace pointed up the mountainside and made a movement to leave. With his heart pounding deep in his chest, adrenaline consuming him, he felt like he was in a dream where he couldn’t move when he so desperately wanted too. Watching the ground, instead of what was in front of them, they both moved simultaneously up the path.
They had not even moved ten feet when a brush of swift air startled them to a stop. Instinctively they turned around, only to be to face a white fox with too many tails. With one hell- raising scream, they both ran as fast as their feet would take them.
