The survivors

Season one: chapter two: Danger at every turn

John began to cautiously approach the bush, his heart racing.

“What the hell are you doing,” JB whisper sharply.

“Seeing what made the noise,” John replied.

“Y’know, that’s a really easy way to get yourself killed,” JB said. Just then, the sound of something tumbling out of the bush made John turn around. But what he saw didn’t scare him, it just confused him. A small, plump bird was sitting at the edge of the clearing. Both JB and John looked at it with a puzzled expression.

“Oh,” JB said. “It’s just a fat bird.”

The plump bird flapped its wings and squawked, its eyes facing in opposite directions.

“Well that’s not so ba-“ John’s sentence was cut off by A reptilian creature leaping out of the bushes and pining the bird to the ground.

“Jesus,” JB yelled as he scrambled to his feet. The two booked it into the jungle, stepping on twigs and stumbling over roots. After they had been running for a good minute, the pair stopped to rest.

“What just happened,” John said in between breaths. “That thing had to have been a dinosaur or something, man,”JB said.

“How could it have been a dinosaur,” John asked.

“I don’t know man, how could we have woken up in some random jungle,” JB retorted.

“Good point,”John said. “It’s probably not safe to stay in one place, we should get moving.”

“Good idea,” JB said. The two began walking through the jungle once more, seeing many more things that confirmed they were in some sort of prehistoric place. Eventuality, the two came to a downhill stream. As they began to wade to the other side, something to the right caught John’s eye. Just as he turned his head, he saw a massive crocodile with a long, narrow snout that ended in a bulb shape lunging at them, with another one close behind. “Watch out,” John yelled as he dove out of the way. A massive splash erupted from behind him as his back was soaked. When he scrambled onto his now drenched back and looked around, though, JB was nowhere to be found.
