"You never take care of Ella anymore!" Claudia yelled at her father, "I've taken her to school, might I add HIGHSCHOOL, 3 times this week! She is only 3 years old!"
"Claudia please!" Her father pleaded.
Claudia picked up Ella and ran outside, she didn't care if she never had to return.
Claudia walked down the road to her school. Once she got inside the building, a huge school house, well lit with baby blue walls. The school house had what seemed like thousands of cubbies, she walked and put her backpack right outside her classroom. Among arriving Claudia hopped onto the schoolbus to head off to Hillous Forest Campsite!
The rickety bus traveled down the road, decorated with christmas lights for a touch of joy, the teachers handed out small cups of hot chocolate. Claudia took a sip and the beverage burnt her tongue, she held Ella and her soft 3 year old hands and slight smile comforted Claudia, maybe everything might be ok. Claudia turned to one of her friends, Layla and asked, “Where are we going again?”
In which Layla responds, “During the day we are finding insects and observing them for our project, and we are spending the night at the cabins for the holiday spirit.”
“How could you forget?!” Bryce chimed in, looking genuinely curios.
“It’s been a long week Bryce.” Claudia retaliates looking Bryce dead in the eye.
“We all have those moments” Ruby rushing to Claudia’s defence, “I’ve been where she is!”
“Haven’t we all?” Mia asked, knowing the answer.
“I haven’t!” Nevan yelled from the row in front of them, obviously joking.
“Neither have I!” Ben yelled from a row across.
“Ok, ok! It’s not always about you!” Lilly yelled at Nevan and Ben.
The bus slowed and then stopped, Claudia picked up Ella and walked off the bus, her boots made a crunch when impacting the snow, the smell of pine was overwhelming, and insects of all shapes, colors, and sizes crawled the trees and few leaves that hadn't been submerged by the snow.
"Sissy look!" Ella pulling at Claudia's pants while stumbling around.
Ella pointed at an ant trail, "Follow?"
[[Følløw An†s->Follow Ants]]
[[∫tay W¡th Clåss->Stay with class]] Claudia is working on finding information, the ant trail is the best option, she can rejoin the group later! Claudia and Ella follow the ant trail to a ''HUGE'' ant hill with ''THOUSANDS'' of ants, wait no not thousands ''MILLIONS!'' Ella tries to use a test tube to pick up the ants but just ends up getting them on the outside of the tube.
[[Rejø¡n Grøup->Rejoin group!]]
[[Cøllec† An†s->Collect ants]] Claudia sighs and kneels down looking at Ella "I'm sorry but we can't follow the ants. We have to stay with our friends!"
Claudia picks up Ella and walks over to her classmates, smiling merrily they all walked over to the cabins. Claudia finds her way into a cabin with some of her friends, they spend all night playing Would You Rather and laughing!
Claudia awoke to the smell of breakfast burritos with a hint of potatoes and bacon and flopped out of the cabin bunk beds, she ran to wherever the smell felt strongest. When Claudia eventually found a room, walls made of wood logs and plenty of tables, sniffing the air once more she got a similar sent but this time she smelled more pine. She grabbed a burrito out of the mountains of them on a large table and sat down next to Kea who was holding Ella.
After completely devouring the burritos all the kids went to line up for the bus, the line was crowded and everyone wanted a window seat, pushing each other everyone ran onto the bus. Claudia found herself towards the front of the bus seated in the isle spot next to Layla and Mia, whom she had known for a while, she turned to look at them and smiled. She held up her water bottle and proposed a toast, Layla and Mia grabbed bottle like objects and joined the toast.
“To my 3 bestfriends!” Claudia said in a whisper. Layla and Mia looked for a 3rd person.
Now would you be a pal and join the toast? Grab a bottle or cup, Happy holidays!

[[Ha Ha fool!]][[Restart?]]Ugh drats!
Last time is the charm!
[[Reset]] Claudia observed the ants and rejoins the group, she stayed up late with her friends playing Would You Rather.
She awoke in the morning and walked to the breakfast tables, as she walked down towards a table the smell of eggos and maple syrup filled the chilly air.
After eating Claudia picked up Ella and carried her onto the bus. The Christmas lights glowed seeming a bit brighter then last time...
Holding Ella in her arms she felt the warmth of the LED lights and her friends in the seat beside her, smiling she faced her friends, the person who helped her decide everything!
"Happy Holidays and a Joyful new year! To ~~you~~ my bestfriends!"
[[''END'']] Claudia finished collecting ants and turns around to see her class is gone, she searched for hours, nobody in sight...
She only found her way deeper into the forest, to an abandonded camp, without proper tents, more or less twig huts, it looks like they were used years ago.
Trees nearby are burnt to a crisp and there is a large metal platform sticking out above the trees.
Without thinking Claudia goes over to the metal thing, seeing that what the metal thing was a plane...
Skeletons scattered across the ground, dried blood on every leaf, moss covering every tree.
[[Proceed the journey]]The
[[Proceed]] The crash happended 5 years ago killing Roxanne Achome and Nagle Achome.
The sun begins to set.
The glimmer of the sun still in sight reflected off the plane wing, the light blinding.
Claudia looks over at sleepy Ella and picks her up.
Walking to the snowy clearing where should Claudia go?
[[Use Twig huts for the night]]
[[Try to exit forest]] Claudia decides that she needs rest and uses the twig huts, its cold but in the middle of the night...
She hears a wolf howl...
Thank the stars she didn't leave.
[[Claudia falls asleep.]] While Claudia tries to find her way out, tired and fatiuged passes out, and wakes up to a visibly hungry wolf looking right at her...
[[''END'']] Claudia wakes up to a crying, screaming Ella, Ella is covered head to toe in ants, Hypoponera ants!
They hunt and kill live insects for food!
This can't be good.
Ella throws her legs in a fit and constantly scratches herself.
[[Try to shake the ants]]
[[Look for a creek]]
[[Hope the Ants Go Away]] Claudia picks up Ella and the Hypoponera ants crawl onto Claudia! No way to get the ants off, no food or water, Claudia and Ella pass out to the sound of wind breaking.
The room a clean white Claudia forced her eyes open, it took so much out of her she couldn't manage to force a word.
The hole ripped in Claudia's chest when she looked around, search helicopters found and rescued Claudia and Ella.
"I'm sorry Mr, I'm afraid she can't be saved. She's lost to much blood" A female in a lab coat says, well it might have been a lab coat.
Claudia's vision to blurry to see.
"PLEASE! Don't tell me you have tried everything!" Claudia picks out her fathers voice, sounding panicked, "If you saved Ella you can save Claudia!
"We can't do anything for your daughter..." The female restates.
Claudia's heartbeat stops.
[[''END'']] Claudia finda a creek and washes Ella off, while washing Ella she finds fish and make a decent meal for the 2 of them, the creek also supplies water, Claudia and Ella are starting to grow on this place...
[[Stay and build a house]]
[[Leave forest]] Ella is unable to drink, eat, or sleep and falls into a coma, Claudia whom is unable to do anything about it. Claudia escapes the forest and holds a proper funeral for her sister...
Well not a proper funeral.
Claudia returns to the forest after a few months go by...
Looking for those bloodstained ants.
Claudia cried for her sister had been killed by ants and her brother and mother died in a plane crash.
//If only Dad didn't make me bring Ella along! None of this would have happened!//
Claudia searched for what she had lost.
Looking around she notices a patch of blood on the grass.
Ants still feasting on Ella's corpse.
Claudia falls next to her sister and the ants crawl onto her.
//Let me see her again!//
The police come after what feels like hours, blood running down Claudia's shirt and all across the leaves.
Her chest looks like a whole was ripped into it, the pain to unbearable for her to even keep her eyes open.
But at least heaven was pretty!
[[''END'']] OK OK OK
You persistant reader!
[[Restart?->Our Adventure Begins]] Claudia and Ella build a dainty house by the side of the creek using the building techniques of the twig huts, the house is roughly the size of a average table. The house "fully" built after a month of work.
[[Answer]] Claudia grabs Noey and begins to exit the forest.
While navigating their way out, Claudia notices ant hills... By the plane, by the twig huts, and by the creek!
The ants had followed them!
[[Calmly try and find an exit]] Claudia starts to sprints out the forest!
''*YoU ThInK YoU CaN EScApE?*''
Claudia notices the giant Hypoponera ant behind her.
[[''END'']] Claudia ~~trys~~ Fails to find a route
The ants are faster.
So much faster.
Claudia and Ella are never heard of again.
[[''END'']] Claudia choses to ignore the mysterios knocking.
The door falls!
[[Confront]]Claudia answers the door to a giant...
The ant takes a giant bite and nearly bites her!
Claudia grabs Ella and trys and run but the ant is afully faster!
[[''END'']] Claudia grabs Ella and hides behind a wall,
"*''YoU CaN'T HidE FrOm Me''*" the creature claims.
Finding Claudia almost instantly, the creatute is an ANT?
A Hypoponera ant...
The ant brushes its fine hairs againts Claudia's arm, the ant takes a step back and lunges!
Claudia strafes left and runs out the door holding Ella!
She finds her way out the forest, Claudia to panicked to notice the rows of ant hills everywhere that they where, the Creek, the Twig Huts, the Plane, she runs out the forest to a street and starts waving her arms franticly while running down the road.
A car eventually sees the 2 girls and pulls over, they take Claudia and Ella to the hospital!
Claudia continues to go to school and grows up to be a writer of novels about ants, no microscope will ever compare to the sight she saw.
[[''END'']] Claudia goes to whoever had the nerve to break her "house" and sees a giant ANT!? Ella begans to cry! The ant lunges and takes a big bite!
"GAH!" Claudia screams and look down at her bloddy arm.
"*''YoU CaN't EsCaPe Me''*." The ant says looking slighly up at her. Claidia gathers enough strength and puches the ant in the face! Claudia grabs a twig and jabs it into the ants thorax, after that everything became a red blur.
Claudia recovers from her fight and returns to school, recalling everything that happened.
The red blood dripping down her hands, Ella screaming, the Hypoponera Ants head by her feet. Lugging the demon to the side of the road, tossed the ant into the street, watching the helpless victums run over it, screaming the passengers got out to see what they hit, the blood all over the rocky roads.
