The trunk of the tree had a smiley face carved into it. This was the twenty-seventh time Kaito had seen it, not counting the time right after he had carved it there. Back then he had been feeling optimistic. Now he just felt annoyed, and it was almost like the face was taunting him.
Making a face right back at it, the teenager turned and looked out at the rest of the woods. The tree was right at a fork in the path, and he had gone down both branches several times over, only to come back to this exact same spot. Every single time. It was unbelievable! How was it even possible to get this lost in a forest? It wasn't even that big of a forest, according to most of the maps he had seen of the continent.
It was getting dark soon, too.
Groaning, Kaito swung his backpack off and sat down at the base of the tree. One of these paths had to lead to the way out somehow. Was he missing something? Before he bothered to go on his twenty-eighth trip around the woods, he'd better think about what he had seen so far first. A pain in the ass, but maybe this was why everyone treated the place like it was haunted or something.
