Lost Souls - A Short Story

Lost Souls - A Short Story

Once upon a time, in a small village nestled in the mountains, there lived a young girl named Sarah. She was known for her beauty and her kind heart, but she also had a strange gift - the ability to see things that others could not.

One day, Sarah decided to explore the dense forest that surrounded the village. As she ventured deeper into the woods, she began to have strange visions. She saw a dark figure, with glowing red eyes, watching her from the shadows.

Frightened, Sarah turned to run, but she couldn't find her way back. She was lost in the forest, with no way to escape the mysterious figure that seemed to be following her.

For days, Sarah wandered the woods, trying to find her way back to the village. She was tired, hungry, and cold, but she refused to give up.
Finally, after what felt like an eternity, Sarah stumbled upon a small clearing. In the center of the clearing stood an ancient tree, unlike any she had ever seen before. It seemed to be beckoning her forward.

As Sarah approached the tree, she saw that it was covered in a strange, shimmering moss. As she reached out to touch it, she was enveloped in a bright light.

When the light faded, Sarah found herself back in the village, but she was no longer the same. Her eyes had changed, they now glowed with the same red light that she had seen in her visions.
From that day forward, Sarah's visions became more frequent and more powerful. She used her gift to help the villagers, but she was always careful to keep her eyes hidden, for fear of what they might think.

Years passed, and Sarah grew old, but her eyes never lost their glow. To this day, the villagers still speak of her and her mysterious gift, and many believe that the ancient tree in the clearing had something to do with it.

The villagers avoided the forest after Sarah's experience, and the tree is still standing in the clearing, waiting for another lost soul to discover it.
