“it’s in the trees! it’s coming!….when I was a child…”
When I was much younger I read a story where in a boy discovers that the forest behind his family’s house was much larger when on the inside than it appeared on the outside. He kept it a secret until it was too late and things turned dark. The story ended with his family having no memory of him, not even his name. And the trees were left waiting.
These are the trees at work.
