Somewhere In The Jungle
Her tiny heart pulsed nervously as she studied her surroundings. She was hungry, tired, and all alone. So, she decided to rest on the leaves while she waited for help to arrive. But a part of her hoped that no one would come. She had never been a fan of people. But as her eyes began to close, she heard a noise. She looked and saw a bunch of unblinking eyes staring at her from the woods.
She Loved Animals
Up to this point, Marina Chapman’s childhood had been ordinary. She lived in a small village in Colombia, but nothing significant had happened to her in her five years of life. She enjoyed spending time with the chickens, goats, and pigs in her village. At times, she felt as though the livestock understood her better than any human could. It was her emotional connection to animals that eventually proved useful in the years ahead.
She Was Taken

One night, she got the eerie feeling that she was being carried away. She heard voices and footsteps. She also smelled the forest. But being the trusting child that she was, she didn’t question anything. In fact, she went back to sleep. But she had no way of knowing her life would radically change when she woke up.
Chapman was stunned by her unfamiliar surroundings. She looked around, but all she saw were a bunch of thick trees. The ground below her was soft and damp, and she got a faint whiff of decaying leaves. At first, the environment disoriented her. Then she realized she was in the middle of the woods. But who brought her here?

As the sun started to set, the crickets and cicadas began whirring wildly. It got dark quickly, but Chapman felt nice and warm within the jungle. Then she heard a noise from up above. She looked up, but all she saw were trees. This worried her. Anything could be up there. She couldn’t help but wonder what predator was lurking in the darkness. But she didn’t have to wait long to find out what it was that was watching over her.
