Close Encounter (Part 6)
There was a huge hole in the ground, right in the middle of the hut. It was just big enough for a man to go through. The table was covering it, which was why they did not see it earlier. It seemed as though someone, or some people have been digging the hole. But for what purpose?
Phil and Dave decided to head back to town to inform the police, but before they could do anything, they heard footsteps coming towards the hut. There was no other way out of the hut except the door. Phil started to panic. It was very unlike him. Without thinking, Dave grabbed Phil and they both jumped into the hole under the table.
They heard voices from above as two people entered the hut. It was two men. Suddenly, one of the men stopped talking. He had noticed two sets of footprints belonging to smaller shoes.
Phil and Dave looked at each other in horror. Of course! The ground outside was muddy. They had left footprints everywhere!
Dave and Phil were really in trouble. The men knew that the boys were in the hut, and the footprints led directly to the table. It would not take them long to realize that they were hiding in the hole, because there was nowhere else in the hut that could have hidden two boys.
The sound of footsteps came closer to where Dave and Phil were hiding...
