Kyori walked along the dirt path. She had been walking for quite a while now. She didn't realize how long it had been since she had stopped to stay in a nice couples home for breakfast. The sun was hot against her skin. She suddenly began to smell bread, cheese, and other foods. She squinted into the distance, and saw a roadside bar! Kyori smiled and began to run over to the bar, regardless of how tired she already was. When she finally got there, she needed to lean against the wall and regain breath. As she opened the door, she realized that there weren't many people in there besides a few men and the barkeep. The men looked up and whistled at her. The men looked very cleary drunk, so Kyori stayed away from them. She walked over to the barkeep and sat down. The barkeep looked up at her. "How may I help you?" Asked the barkeep. The barkeep was a man who looked to be in his late 50's. He had been sweeping. "I don't care what you get me, I just need to eat and drink something." Kyori answered. The barkeep chuckled. "Been on an adventure, have ya?" Kyori nodded. "I've been walking for quite a while, this bar was a glorious save." The barkeep chuckled again. "Yes, it was. The twins could 'ave been out 'n about." "The twins?.." The barkeep leaned in as if this was some type of secret. "The twin destroyers, honey." Kyori narrowed her eyes. "I'm not sure if I want any of your folklore." The barkeep narrowed his eyes the same. "Fine, pretend you never heard anything, see how it works out for ya." Kyori rolled her eyes. The barkeep placed a glass of water and some food on the counter. "Just be careful out there, sweetheart." Kyori nodded as she placed her money on the counter. "Thanks for the food. Keep the change." The barkeep smiled as she turned around and began to walk out the door. Thankfully the drunk men had left, so she didn't have to put up with them. However, as Kyori left, she couldn't help thinking. Who were the twin destroyers? Why were they dangerous? Billions of questions swarmed in her head. She continued walking absentmindedly down the dirt path yet again. Before she knew it, Kyori was in a deep forest. The path had grass growing on it, so it was hard to follow at this point. Kyori struggled to stay on the path before, but now as the forest thickened, it seemed like there was no path at all. Kyori tryed to stay in the general direction the path was headed, but it was harder than it seemed. Worry began to form in her like a barbell in her stomach. She tryed to calm herself, and thought of a reasonable way to follow the path. Then It came to her. She could just go where there were no trees growing. Yes, that would work. She should be able to get somewhere like that. As she tryed this, the forest began to deform. Trees were bent in odd shapes, bushes looked like they had seen better days, and there was the stench of dead animals wafting through the air. Kyori felt a shiver down her spine. However, she convinced herself to keep going. As she went further in, she swore she could hear whispers. She couldn't make out what they were saying, but they were there. Practically every instinct in her body was screaming at her to turn back, but something was pulling her in. Like a magnet. She knew exactly what this magnet was. Curiousity. She was curious about what would happen. She reluctantly walked down the path until the smell of dead animal was unbearable. She found herself in a small clearing. The trees were practically twisty straws, swirling and deforming and curving in gnarly shapes. It was unnerving. Then out of nowhere, were giggles. The weird thing is that the giggles were in perfect unison. The giggles seemed to move around the entire clearing. Kyori was terrified. She wanted to run right away, but it was like something was keeping her in place. She shut her eyes, hoping it was all a dream. The giggles suddenly seemed to be directly in front of her. She opened her eyes. There before her were two children. One wore yellow clothes, the other wore blue. The one in yellow had red eyes, the one in blue had grey. They both had short white hair. The children were standing diretly in front in front of her and smiling. Then they said in perfect unison, "Hello!" Kyori waved awkwardly. "What are you kids doing out here?" The children began to giggle. It wasn't a cute little giggle, but a malicious, wicked giggle. It sent shivers up Kyori's spine. "Will you play a game with us?" The children asked, still in unison. Kyori thought for a moment. She supposed she could have a bit of fun. "Sure." Kyori responded at last. The children smiled and told Kyori to follow them. Kyori did so. The children guided her down a pathway. The trees were looped in a pathway, creating darkness on this path. As they walked down the path Kyori thought she should ask these children their names. "So, what are your names?" Kyori asked. "I am Etris." Said the little girl in yellow. "I am Ethnis." Responded the other little girl in blue. "I have never heard names like those before." Kyori said in awe. The children just looked at each other, smiling. As they continued down the path, it began to get darker. Something in her wanted her to turn back, but she just kept walking. She noticed that the children hadn't flinched once at a noise, or shown any sign of fear. Kyori told herself she was just paying to much attention to what was happening. Minutes passed, but they were still walking. Kyori was tired. "How long is it until we get where we're going?" The children just looked at each other, smiling. Kyori sat down at a tree, regaining her breath. The children stopped and turned around to look at Kyori. "Don't you still want to play with us?" The little girls asked. Kyori sighed. "Yes, but can we just do it here? And not wherever we're going?" The children looked at each other. Then back at Kyori. "Sure.." They responded in unison. They began to walk towards Kyori. "So what's the game?" She asked. The children laughed maniacally. "LUNCHTIME." Kyori snapped out of her tired gaze into nowhere and stared at the twins. She now noticed that they had RAZOR SHARP TEETH. They started laughing in unison and began walking slowly towards Kyori. Kyori instantly got up and ran. Suddenly a vine grabbed her by the leg and dragged her back. Vines wrapped around her body and held her in place as the twins walked towards her. "Why so serious?!" They said in unison. The vines grabbed the corners of her mouth and forced her to smile. Kyori screamed. But out here in the middle of nowhere, nobody could hear her scream. The twins walked towards her still. Kyori struggled and struggled in the tight vines, but it was no use. Kyori began to cry as the twins were now right in front of her. The last thing Kyori saw before blacking out, were the twins, smiling ear to ear. Many years later, a few normal kids are walking down the same dirt path. They saw the dark area and thought it looked cool, so they walked inside. Before they knew it, they were practically standing exactly where Kyori died. They looked around the forest area until a little boy from the group saw something. Behind the curved trees was a bush. With a leg sticking out of it. The boy, still mildly frightened, pulled out the thing connected to the foot. It was a body. Eyes frozen and unblinking and their face twisted in a crooked smile. The little boy screamed and his friends all came over to see what was going on. As soon as they saw it, the oldest child said that they should leave here, just in case. But as they began to leave, they heard the haunting giggles of the twin destroyers.
