Isolation, she craved it so bad it hurt. She needed to get away from the crazy, hectic, city-life. So, when she read the ad, it fit her needs perfectly. Now, as she looked at the narrow dirt road, navigable only by foot, she was beginning to have second thoughts.
Any minute, she expected to see a large iron gate with a banner reading “Abandon hope, all Ye who enter here.” Shivering at the thought, she rounded the first curve, smiling as the dense undergrowth gave way to a small clearing. The clearing held four huts around a firepit with a large cauldron bubbling away, and a line of villagers watching her.
It was a homey sight.
“Hello!” She smiled, waving a greeting.
‘Welcome to dinner,” They called.
Their recent foray into modern advertising had expanded their menu greatly.
