Woe betide any soul that got lost within the thorny trees of the Bramble Forest. But at least there was always the ogre search parties that would eventually track them down and bring them to safety. If one ever got lost in the forest, all one had to do was simply stay in one place and you would eventually be found.
And then, He came, and the Bramble Forests took on a whole new, terrifying meaning.
The small cloud that was a soul zig-zagged through the trees, going at high speed. If it was capable of it, it would be panting in utter terror. A small part of it twisted back, as it to try and look behind itself, looking to see if its pursuer was still following it. At first it seemed like it had finally managed to elude him.
And then came that demented giggling. There was a crack in the trees, as a form was moving amongst them. Dammit, he was still there! And judging by the giggling, he was getting closer! The soul tried to pick up speed. It had to get out of here! Who was the wise guy that planted this damn forest anyway?
Suddenly, there was a cracking overhead, and something shot over the soul, landing in front of it, and almost causing the soul to run into it. The tall form stood over it, his long, lanky arms, ending in claws, stretched out, as if to block its path. The twisted face of Gaff was in a dark grin, chuckling cruelly. "So sorry, I'm afraid this road is closed!" he laughed, before lunging to grab it. The soul, thankful that it was just a cloud, was able to slip from his grasp and take off in the opposite direction. Gaff just let out a laugh and chased after it.
