100WC-Week 15

This week’s prompt is:

…so, what lies ahead of…

I’m woken by a piercing ringing. I sit up and peer out the window. The whole backyard is covered in fog but a small ball emitting a suspicious luminescence floats in the centre of it. I slowly ease the window up and slither through. I’m out in the cold and I can still hear the ringing obviously coming from the bright ball. Suddenly it starts moving away, picking up speed and heading straight for the forest. I sprint to follow it and when I enter the forest I feel a cold breeze push against me. So, what lies ahead of me in this uncanny forest?
