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...............

So Angst an Apanik are settling in for the night and are chatting round the camp fire letting their thoughts run wild and wondering if any body will be missing them. The twins have trouble sleeping at night because of all the thoughts so they decide to sing there favourite song which happens to be Wonderwall by Oasis. As no one is around they sing this at the top off there voices "Back beat and the word is on the street that the fire in your heart is out, im sure you have heard it all before but you never really had a doubt cause maybe you never going to pay me and after all she's my wonderwall" . They finish singing the song and are feeling a lot more relaxed and chilled and decide to get there heads down.

They drift off to sleep but then in the middle of the night they are woken by a big crash what could this be???? they both get up and goto investigate.

The crashing sound continues coming closer to where they are both sitting up now in fright, holding each other very tight for comfort. Angst is so worried for his sister's safety that he pulls the knife out of his pocket and prepares to defend her from whatever is making the horrible racket. Apanik sees the knife and her panic sets in when she realizes that the danger has to be serious for her brother to take it out. With trembling hands, she goes to search for her knife from her backpack, but can not find it anywhere. Now her anxiety raises a few notches and she starts rocking back and forth in fright. Angst tries to wrap his arm around her, but this makes things worse and she bolts from the tent and starts running away from the noise, deep into the forest. Apanik soon finds herself lost and climbs up into a huge cedar tree to see if she can spy her brother. Her mind is racing with terrifying thoughts and she tries to be quite so the monster won't discover her. She looks around and does not see anything but the trees and listens to the sound of birds chirping above her in the canopy. The scent of the cedar is so strong it makes her feel a little dizzy and her nose starts to tickle.

"Oh, where is Angst?" Apanik says to herself. " I should never have left him. I bet the monster has done gobbled him up and I'm all alone! Why did we leave home? We should have stayed with that nice man Red. He never said a cross thing to us the whole time we were in his big truck. I just want to go home!  I'm so hungry and scared!"

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.  skull


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. smhair 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.

Curled up together in by the warm fire at their camp they begin to dream. While dreaming, large crystal snowflakes begins falling all around them. It covers the forest in a beautiful white blanket.  Their trail is now lost in the new world that came upon them while sleeping.

Lol, I think we all are doing postings at the same time and have given these poor children M.P.D. I'll fix it real quick L.A.S. :)


Angst and Panik both wake up feeling a curious vibration. They were sharing a dream as only twins could and looked around seeing the insides of a truck and old Red sitting behind the wheel. He glances over at their wide eyes and gives a low chuckle.

"You two were having quite a sleep!" He exclaims in astonishment at the look upon their faces. "I never heard so much hollering in all my years. Are you sure you two are okay? Are you hungry little ones?"

The twins look at each other with their stomachs growling and start laughing in unison. . .

(I'll participate just this one time. I enjoy writing very much, but I'm afraid I have an awful habit of wanting to control everything in the story, so... I do not work well when collaborating with others. //^_^\\'... And, err, am I the only one that thinks it's kind of weird that these two kids are so trusting of a complete stranger? And that the complete stranger is so nice to these two kids that could be thieving heathens for all he knows? Guess I better try to remedy this situation, so that it makes some kind of sense)


Red fumbled around in the glove department before finding two candy bars and handing them to the twins.

"I'm afraid I don't got much in the way of food in this here truck, but as soon as we get off these backroads, we'll stop by a McDonald's or something and get you two something to eat. Sound good?"

Angst and Panik took the candy bars eagerly, unwrapping them and gobbling them down without a second thought. They had not yet been lectured about "stranger danger." In fact, most of their anxieties were overblown (and considered childish) fears. Fear of the dark, fear of dying in their sleep as their Aunt Martha had done, fear of the Bogeyman, fear of clowns... The fears of these two were always ever-growing and deep-seated. Even now, as the truck turned along the curvy road, they feared the car would lose control in the curve and plummet into the forest surrounding them.

Panik scooted closer to Angst, trying to get as far away from the window as possible. Red knew they were fearful, anxious children... but for all the wrong reasons. He felt glad that it was him who had picked the kids up and not someone with more malicious intentions.

"I don't mean to pry, but... what happened?"

It was always risky business picking up kids. He preferred picking up adults. With adults, it didn't matter where he left them as long as they were fairly close to civilization. Kids, on the other hand, always managed to get themselves into trouble when they weren't supervised. It was a headache. And Red, the Dreameater, did not like headaches.
I think I am being picked on by life, sometimes. But's that okay. Life and I are good buddies... I know life doesn't mean no harm. It just is the way it is. I can accept that.

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?)

Thanks

Kitt

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 smhair

Lol, no Amber alert needed yet dear lil sis :)
 
 
Red spies a McDonald's sign standing tall south of the next exit.  He hits the air brakes and slowly moves over into the exit lane.  Angst and Apanik perch on their seat, eagerly soaking in all the new and exciting sights.
 
"All right kids, I'm going to pull into the parking lot and we'll run inside and grab a few happy meals."
 
"Cool." answers Angst politely.  "I really have to use the restroom too."
 
Old Red smiles and turns on his signal.  Panik is craving some fries and starts to bounce up and down on her seat.  They pull into the adjacent lot for the truckers very slow because the fast food joint is very crowded.  Red slows his rig down, then stops setting the emergency brake in one smooth motion.  Panik glances around at all of the people milling around and it sets her heart to racing and her breathing starts becoming very shallow.  Not wanting to be made a fool, she turns towards the door to open it for some fresh air.  Then it hits hard. . . Panik's heart skips a few beats and all the blood drains from her face.
 
"Oh, dear God!" Apanik thinks to herself excitedly.  "Please help me.  I don't want to die in this strange place!"
 
She thinks about the breathing technique that her brother found on the computer.  Panik closes her eyes while leaning back into the cracked pleather seat.
 
"In through the nose, one thousand one, one thousand two. . . Out of the mouth, one thousand one, one thousand two, one thousand three, one thousand four."  Apanick repeats to herself for about a minute.  It seems to be helping a bit, but the smell of stale cigarette smoke invades her senses. . . . .

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. ..............................

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.

Edit:
