As Jen struck the stone against the blade of her Swiss army knife again, she began to lose hope. Her arms burned from the effort; her fingers were growing numb in the cold.
“Shit! Why didn’t I ever practice!” Tears burned.
“Heeeelp!” She screamed again, knowing she was too far away for anyone to hear.
Tightening her fleece, she pressed the top snap.
“I’ve got to stay calm, to get through the night. Tomorrow, someone’ll come.”
She struck the blade again and a spark lit the moss. “Thank God,” she murmured as the dark fell in around her.
