After last night’s strange wind storm that blew down so much dead wood, Alister was happy to have the fuel for his campfire, but at dawn, unable to move or make a sound, he was gathered into hard, rough arms with several other campers and dumped into a pile.
Now, as the flames lick closer, he watches the stickmen settle down to warm themselves by the silent screams of those already burning, and Alister commands himself, “Wake up!”
