The torchlights came on one by one, both those who had dual flashes and triple flashes. By the time they were done, the place was so lighted up they could as well have been carrying a generator.

They all walked back to the treeline, the border between barrenness and fertility, between the known and the unknown. Up close, the trees loomed tall and dark and foreboding beyond the light of their torches. And then they went in, swallowed immediately by the darkness. There was a footpath they usually took whenever coming here, not too wide, and bordered by ankle-high weeds.

Their torchlights were bright, but as they walked double file behind their class instructor, the darkness seemed to press in on them past where their torches could reach. And judging by the eerie sounds coming from within, it was clear that the jungle was only truly alive at night. Chuks focused on not looking out into that darkness, just the small circle in front of him lit up by his phone’s torchlight.

Of all twenty-four of them walking, no one made a sound.

Then there was a sudden loud noise, and all of them stiffened, looking all around. The noise swelled and swelled and swelled, and everyone’s eyes went up to the darkness above just as the first helicopter flew past above the tops of the trees, spotlight preceeding it. Then the second one, just two seconds behind, tail lights blinking as it went.
