"ROAD TRIP" My friends and I decided to take a road trip up the Kalama River, into the mountains. We didn't know exactly where to go but we knew we wanted to go up the River Road. Eric and I were thinking of who to take with us."How about Ryan?," asked Eric.I said "Sure, why not."

Everyone was sitting down at the camp fire listening to music, and having a blast. We started to play a game of truth or dare, but we noticed that Phil wasn't there.

So Eric and I went to look for him and see if he was still over by the bank. When we got there their was no sign of Phil anywhere. So we proceeded to look around the area.Everyone at the camp fire was still playing truth or dare, and someone must have got dared to run up to the power line and back, cause I could hear someone running. A couple minutes later I heard a scream, it sounded like it was Kyle, so everyone ran...
