The Mist Part One

 

One night, I was on my regular 10pm dog run when I heard a noise. Not a pleasant or familiar noise, but something drew me to it... It got louder and louder.

I ended up in a gloomy, dark forest. After 3 minutes of running, I could see some greeny-blue mist. The mist got closer and closer, the floor rose like a ghost and BANG...

The floor exploded just above my head! 

Next thing I knew, I was in a pit of mist. My dog Floss, a collie, howled like mad!
