It's dark, it's late but I want to get some air.
I put on my shoes and I take the path towards the mysterious forest.
There are no streetlights, but the stars illuminate the landscape with a silvery color.
I know the way by heart and in less than ten minutes, I arrive at the entrance of the forest, but this evening something special is driving me away.
In front of me, a large metal carcass decorates the landscape.
I take my courage and advance towards the fabulous steel sculpture.
I caress the outlines and I feel a pretty strange sensation, little by little my hands become icy. I imagine the worst, I hit a shot, nobody answers me except the echo in the machine.
I type a second time and suddenly a voice cries out words in an unknown language.
From a startle I stray from the saucer and stumble on a branch, my buttocks are on the ground and I see a human form advancing to me.
"The thing" speaks to me aggressively but I don't understand a single word.
I put my arms in front of my face and push a shrill cry, but no one can hear me in this forest.
I withdraw my arms, and I see that she hands me her hand, hesitating, I give her mine and she helps me to rise. I try not to move too much, not to upset her.
The creature turns, leaves in the direction of his carriage, and disappears.
Afraid, I decide to run to my house, once arrived, I slide the key in the lock and my door opens without a sound.
On the other side, I discover an immaculate empty space of white... But where am I?
I don't know what's happening to me, am I getting mad?
Upstairs in my room someone calls me, I decide to join him it tells me to install the consultation will start...
