A Trip in the Frost

In the early morning, the sun is shining in the forest. It is beautiful. Different trees are standing straight under the sun and the light falls across the leaves onto the ground. The murmuring water runs down a rocky hill.

A girl is walking by the creek, alone in the forest and she hears birds singing in the trees. A bird twitters very loudly. The chirping reminds her of the morning when her mother usually gently wakes her up. Suddenly, the wind begins howling; she is only wearing pajamas and feels cold.
