Angst fell asleep first, leaving Apanik to recount the day's events. Why could their parents not see what was happening to their children? Apanik tried to remember the last time she had been truly happy and free from the burden of anxiety. she thinks and thinks, but fear has dominated her life for so long that her head only remembers the bad.
Apanik rolls over and looks at Angst- he is snoring gently, she watches his chest rise and fall- she has always been scared of family members dying in their sleep, even the young ones. you could say she obsesses about it. But its ok, Angst is very much alive- and sleeping peacefully. Or is he?
Shortly after falling asleep, Angst began dreaming. He dreamt that he was on the run from something dark, something depressing- but he couldnt put a face to it. He dreamt that he is a child again, however he is still being chased by a dark and sorrowful force. If only Angst knew it- he was running away from anxiety. and in his mind, this was a very dark thing.
He wakes up and worries- mostly about what would happen to Apanik if he wasnt around. she relied on him so heavily. dont get me wrong, he doesnt mind- he kinda enjoys being the protective brother- but he has no one to do the same for him. feeling hungry, Angst went for the bag with the food- only to find that possums had had a field day with what little supplies they had left.
Now they were in the middle of nowhere- or somewhere CLOSE to the middle of nowhere, and they no longer had food. How can this be remedied? the twins are stubborn and proud, as well as anxious- they will never go back home to the parents that choose to take their issues lightly. now they are trapped- no food and minimal drinking water.
Angst woke Apanik and gently, calmly explained the situation. Apanik froze- she was out of her comfort zone, and although she felt protected by Angst, she could see the anxiety in his eyes. after packing up camp, they agreed to thumb their way at the nearest highway.
It felt like they walked all day just to get to a main road- they were both sunburnt, tired and thirsty. Angst stuck his thumb out, but car after car whizzed past, not giving the twins a second look or the time of day. However a generous, big bellied truck driver pulled over- he opened the passenger door and leaned over. "where are you kids headed?" he asked. Apanik looked at Angst as he tried to make a decision. Finally, Angst spoke; "sir- we are going wherever you are going. we have no plan."
The semi driver introduced himself as Red, and watched as the twins clambered up the steps to the cabin of the big rig. they seemed nervous, edgy, restless- they also were not particularly talkative. Red decided not to push them for information- he assumed they would tell him when they felt like it. "I hope no one is missing these kids" he thought to himself. but he neednt have worried- no one was missing the twins...............

Apanik is frozen in place as they wonder where the noise is coming from ? Another crash................closer this time. All of a sudden she realizes Angst is next to her in the tree............he has made his way to her side to help her without making any noise. There is a full moon out so their eyes are darting everywhere, their heart rates start rising and they are feeling very shaky, Apanik has tears rolling down her cheeks as she starts to imagine they are going to be attacked by a wild animal.
She wants to climb down and run but Angst has taken some big deep breaths and remembers to stay in the moment and uses what he has learned about controlling anxiety............so he tells his sister to slow her breathing down and just sit down in the big tree and lean up against it repeating to her self, I am fine, I am safe............... when they look down a spotted doe is looking back at them........................
They start to laugh as the doe looks as frightened as they are. They hug each other and decide they are doing well having no idea what tommorow may bring. Angst helps his sister climb down from the tree and they make it safely back to their shelter.
The night wind whistles through the tree tops as they drift off to sleep.______________________________________________

Well dang Bro, mine found the campfire.............I am sitting here lol, unbelievable............... well I will let you fix this one........I have tears in my eyes from laughing.................
Some spooky story we weave................
did no one notice i got them OUT of the forrest and hitch hiking, then they got in a truck? driving away from the forrest?
we have to do this in order, my friends or it wont make sense! (sorry- im an english teacher, i cant help it)
This thread is so messed up right now...................
Maz I saw your Red Truck but Ben posted in between. As Lyn started this let's let her decided if we continue it. It was suppose to follow the twins through the forest and see how they would cope with A & P , not get them out of the forest to a store. At least I believe that was what Lyn was looking for.....to see how they would cope?
I think what happened is members posted at same time........and I know Sam and I have been laughing about our snafu.
Let's hold for Lyn. (Big Sis you driving that truck?)

I am sorry I said it was messed up, maybe it is my mind that is messed up. I know we have some great story tellers and members that could work through this. My brain has been wandering all day, I have a gps tracker for it.
I will stand by until someone else makes it clear if the kids are in the truck or forest otherwise I will have to post an amber alert
Bro, it is you birthday...........is your party at McDonald's?
Good job..........I will be back have to work today Big sis and then I will add to the story.
Angst has been watching Red out of the corner of his eyes and is beginning to think there is something not right about the man. He helps Apanik get her breathing slowed down and as they are helped down from the Big Rig they realize they are right next to a wayside rest. There is a path around the back of the rest area for people to walk their dogs.
Red say "Come on kids, let's eat, and use the bathroom. Angst and Apanik follow Red into Mc Donalds and chow down on food. Angst orders the Super size meal and as he is eating he is sneaking some of his fries into his jacket pocket. When they are done eating Red say "well I am going to use the head".
Angst grabs his sister and says we have to get out of here. His heart rate is rising and his palms are sweaty as he takes his sister and tells her to walk calmly to the door. Once out the door they head around the back of the Waystop Rest and flee down the path back into the woods.
Angst is near tears by now, he can feel the cool of the forest closing in around them but they keep going until they are deep into the forest.
Finally they stop and fall down on the pine needles that cushion the forest floor. Angst is now crying with anxiety. He is trying to stop but he cannot help his fear. What if that man meant to hurt them? How dumb was he to let his sister and himself get into a truck with a complete stranger?
Apanik sits beside him and talks to him quietly, her instincts telling her to reassure him they are safe now and to not let the "stinkin thinkin" thoughts continue. Angst fianlly starts to turn his thoughts around, he made a mistake but they are safe now. He tells himself he is not dumb and right now he will concentrate on what to do for tonight........................
They have no idea where they are but they were only in the truck for 15 minutes and on a major freeway. So they start to talk quietly as the sun starts to set. ..............................
you all are doing a great job! i will leave it in your capable hands.
I am sorry I deleted your post as you are promoting EFT in every post I have read.
EFT has been labeled as pseudoscience in the Skeptical Inquirer magazine, based on what the journal describes as its lack of falsifiability, reliance on anecdotal evidence and aggressive promotion via the Internet.Gary Craig, the developer of EFT, has argued that tapping anywhere on the body will manipulate "energy meridians". There are many points used by acupuncturists which are not included in EFT methodology, and tapping one of those may have an accidental effect not yet explored. Skeptics have asserted that such an argument renders EFT untestable via the scientific method, and therefore a pseudoscience.
I have looked at all the info on this topic on the internet and it all leads back to Gary Craig and his "sit to sell". The link to this site has already been removed from another post of yours.
