Three 20-something friends (two males and a female) decide to go for a spring hike in the Blue Ridge Mountains of North Carolina to check out some scenic waterfalls and get some 'clarity'. All is going just as planned until a dark creature is spotted on the trail. Will everyone be found alive and well by sunset? Approx. 11K words. If this novelette were made in to a movie, it would most likely be rated PG-13 (language, drugs).
