The Sisters of Nowhere
All small towns have their quirks.
The town of Nowhere, for example, has an overabundance of ghosts.
Wyatt Best has lost his money, his father, and his last sweater vest.
He is only sad about losing one of those things.
When he's sent to live with his estranged uncle in Nowhere, Wyatt is immediately fascinated by its magic.
He then meets the Penny family.
The three Penny sisters, who were each born on the same day exactly a year apart, have the ability to commune with the ghosts in Nowhere and act as a bridge between the land of the living and that of the dead.
Just as Wyatt begins to adjust to his new life in this strange town, a forest appears.
And the ghosts it has trapped inside have secrets to tell.
I broke the rule that says you shouldn't follow the voices in the forest
I knew it was wrong at the time but standing in front of the charred remains of my house, I feel like I made the right choice.

Weird sighting near Ho Forest Olympic National Park, Washington State.
So this is a weird story that happened a few years ago that I still dont understand. I understand telling stories over the internet brings about questions of authenticity and truthfulness about the telleruserwhatever I am. Its impossible to tell if the story is made up or not which I fully understand and I dont expect you to believe me. Just hear me out and think for yourselves. Thats all I ask. Maybe even saying all that makes it seem fishy.
A couple years ago my girlfriend and I decided to make a 2 week trip out to Washington state. We didnt plan anything out we just figured it out along the way. We first visited Yakima, then traveled to Seattle, then went to Olympia, then Bremerton, then Forks, and ended up deciding to go to Ho Forest National Park. I dont want to drag on about everything we did before it happened because I dont find it applicable to the story (I can if you think it may apply to the story in the comment section later). Anyway, when we were navigating to Ho Forest somehow we go lost. We ended up going about 20 miles off track and ended up, in what looked like, a tree logging operation area. There were a bunch of wide open sections with tree stumps as far as the eye could see. As we were driving through this area the sun was setting. I dont know exactly what time this happened but off in the distance (100-125 yards) I could see movement off of the left side of the road. Whatever it was, it was moving fast. It was running from the left side of the road to the right side (if that makes sense) At first I thought it was a bear, once it crossed the road was when I got really confused. IT WAS RUNNING ON ITS HIND LEGS! I watched it for around 15 seconds before it disappeared into the Forest. It had to be running at least 30 mph or more. It mightve been a bear but I dont know if they can run that fast on their hind legs or if they do that at all. Help me out guys

Frankenstein's Guide (Book 1, the LiteraTours Cozy Mystery Series)
Jessica "Ike" Wordsworth can dive into books, but she isn't prepared for a monster - and a ruthless murderer killing her tourists.
Ike is fighting the aftermath of a nasty divorce that left her husband in custody of her homesitting business - and her beloved cats.
With nothing but a turquoise construction trailer to call her home, Ike invests her last quid and becomes partner in a tour company specialising in bespoke trips for book-lovers.
When the guide hired to take on the first tour drops out at the last minute, Ike has to take over and steer her guests towards the cradle of Mary Shelley's "Frankenstein".
All to soon she realises there truly are monsters on the loose, one of them a ruthless killer who's targetting her tourists.
To unearth the truth, Ike will have to cooperate with her moronic partner, Gary Sands, 13th Baron of Nettlehole and founder of LiteraTours.
When they don't succeed in stopping the killer, she realises she'll have to take the plunge and draw on some rather unusual skills her family has been hiding from the world .
. "Frankenstein's Guide" is the first instalment in the "LiteraTours Cozy Mystery series". [[word count: 100,000-150,000 words]]
I accompanied a woman back to her village while looking for firewood in the forest.
On my way back to the camp, I bump into a group of forest rangers saying that they are searching for me that has been lost for three days.

Concerns about the Dark Forest theory
Ive seen this theory popping up more and more on this thread, suggested YouTube videos, etc. and Im a bit worried about it. I feel like its possible that the theory is being spread more in order to justify violence against other beings.
Does anyone else have thoughts on this or share the same concern?

Here is why the 'Dark Forest' theory may be wrong.
If we're a threat to advanced aliens, one may wonder how they feel about each other.
Humans are a threat? What about their alien neighbor that can do all the relatively advanced things they can do?
Dark Forest theory may imply a single alien being that has somehow taken control of his species civilization, technology and everything, he's killed all the rest (because 'Dark Forest theory; universe is dangerous, kill them all) and now he's either on the march to ultimately exterminate all life other than his own, or he's waiting somewhere for an encounter with another being so they can then be almost immediately destroyed.
Or it's an organization of extremely hostile aliens? But why would they not be hostile to each other?
Extremely hostile aliens that learned to get along with each other near perfectly, with more power than any human has probably ever seen, and now have decided all outsiders must be destroyed. This is possible, how likely does it actually sound?
To me it sounds nearly implausible.
The truth may be they are really nice and compassionate because they have to cohabitate with advanced beings like themselves. If they can get along with something dangerous as one of them, are humans the ultimate threat that cannot be quelled without blood and war? Maybe.
Thanks for reading. Let me know what you think if you want. Thank you.
