Adam came back...well, more like he was found.
Mr. Leher was on his way home from school and there he was, standing, stiff as any statue, staring off into nothingness.
He was on the edge of Sutter's woods - an old logging area - outside of town... it's been abandoned for 15 years.
I guess it became too expensive to get the wood out, because of all the rough terrain. There are so many twists, turns, and dangerous cliffs...most of the area has gone unexplored. A few have tried to map it, but never came out.
Kids make up stories about ghosts and strange sightings up there. Me? I don't know...just one more place on my "don't ever want to visit" list.
Mr. Leher had a hard time getting Adam into his car. When I say stiff...it's like he's made out of stone. Couldn't call for help...no cell service out there, so old stinky had to do it all by himself. I would have loved to have been there. Adam's not a big guy, but most 5th graders tower over Leher.
Adam is in the Hospital "resting"...no one's allowed near him for now.
He's got some sort of sleep paralysis. I guess his mind is fully awake...he just can't move. They're trying to find out what happened to him, but at this point he can only blink, so it's gonna take some time.
Must have been one heck of a nightmare.
