We trudged through the cold slopes and frosted grasses, pushing the frosted-over ferns out the way. I let the fingers of my gloves gently touch the trunks of large pine trees, their branches drooping under the weight of the delicate snow. I yawned, shivering. My friend, Pica, shuffled along beside me, her face flushed with cold. She was a very interesting person, seeing that she could sail a boat and loved art. I just hoped I could see her paint again, that is if we don't freeze to death out here. Suddenly we heard a shrill cry through the thick snowfall. I looked up. "What was that...?" Pica murmured anxiously. A pair of tongs lied in the snow in front of us. "Someone must've dropped these," I said, picking one up. It vibrated gently in response. We saw a bright red trail, quickly being veiled by the snow. We followed the bloody trail to come across a body. The man was alive, but only slightly. He had a somber expression. "Oh my god, oh my god! What happened?!" Pica yelled, crouching beside the bleeding man. His pupils were dilated, it seemed like his vision was closing as his eyes were frosting over. At his side was a bottle of some sort of spice. "Please... take it to my family, they need it," he said. "They are here. Please..." he murmured. "My wife, she's pregnant. She won't believe that I'm dead until she sees this," he whispered, his voice fading. "Wait, sir! What is your name?" I said. "Aray Willson," he said. I knew he looked familiar. He was a somber aircraft engineer I knew back in Texas. I placed a hand on his. "Don't go... you got me here in the first place. Don't go..." I murmured. "How did you even get here?"
