Trapped in the Forest

The effect of insulation perfume had tapered down, as three of them had reached deep inside the forest. Because of the dense trees, Whopnut’s detection system didn’t have any effect there.

‘We’ll have to hide somewhere,’ Victorson said.

‘What’s the matter?’ Ginnie asked, as she also heard the sound.

‘They’re chasing us.’

‘Who – you mean those soldiers?’

‘Yeah, they must be close. Let’s go up those trees and hide behind the big leaves.’

‘WE CAN FIGHT THEM OUT, VICTOR,’ Robojit was in a belligerent mood.

‘Yeah, Robojit is right,’ Ginnie supported him, as she pulled out her gun.

‘No – no, we should avoid any kind of fight. One, because we don’t want to indulge ourselves in violence. Two, that would delay us in our journey,’ Victorson suggested.
