It's been three days since Seedeater came. I was really worried that he might tell Slender where I am. But was mostly worried about (Name). Why would Seedeater want take her away from me? What did I ever do to him? I was just happy Strider would stay with her when ever I left.
I woke up early to look for a new place to keep (Name) safe. But it wasn't long before Slender found me. He wrapped his tentacles around my arms and legs. No matter how hard I tried, I couldn't break free. "Damn it Slender!" I yelled. "Hoodie, relax" he said. "Let me go you son of a bitch!" "Calm down and I'll let you go." I did as he said, but he still had me in his grip. "What do you want?" I asked. "I just wanna talk." "Really?" I didn't believe him. "I only fought you because I wanted to see if you were serious."
"About that girl. I wanted to see if you really did care about her."
"Wait. You were testing me?"
"So me standing up to you wasn't enough?"
"No it wasn't. That's why I fought you all those times."
"So, your not gonna kill her?"
"No Hoodie. If she means that much to you, I won't hurt her." I was surprised at this. I thought he was really pissed at me. And he finally let me go.
"Now what's this about a secret lake Seedeater's been telling me about?"
"Wait, what?" 'That son of a fucking bitch! I swear to God I'm gonna smash his head against a rock!'
"Seedeater told me you were hiding her at a lake I didn't know about."
"I am, until I can I find someplace else."
"Seedeater came and tried to take her."
"Why would he do that? I thought he hated humans."
"I don't know, but all I know is she isn't safe there anymore."
"Is she still there?"
"Yeah, Strider is with her, so its ok."
"Alright, but maybe you should head back. I'll find out what's going on with Seedeater.
"Ok." I turn around to head back. "Uh, Slender."
I woke under the willow tree again, but instead of Hoodie, Strider was next to me. He must have sat next to me when Hoodie left to keep me warm. When I sat up Strider nudged my arm with his head, his own way of saying 'pet me'. I start petting him, making him purr. For a tall hairy monster, he's kinda cute.
At least two hours past and Hoodie still hadn't come back. I was getting a little worried. I suddenly hear Strider growling. He looking towards some bushes. Right before I could get to my feet, everything went black....
