It was a cold night in the woods of Oregon, and the campers were huddled around a fire, roasting marshmallows and telling stories. They were a family of four: a mother, a father, and two small children, a boy and a girl. They had come to enjoy the nature and escape the city life for a while.
Little did they know, they were not alone in the forest. Watching them from a distance, hidden behind the trees, was another family: a female bigfoot and her two adolescent children, a son and a daughter. They had been curious about the campers ever since they saw their tent and their car. They had never seen such strange creatures before, and they wanted to learn more about them.
The bigfoot mother decided to take a risk and approach the campers. She told her children to stay behind and be quiet. She slowly walked towards the fire, making sure not to make any noise. She hoped the campers would not be afraid of her, and maybe even share some of their food with her.
The campers were so engrossed in their stories that they did not notice the bigfoot mother until she was very close to them. When they saw her, they gasped and screamed. They thought she was a monster, and they grabbed their belongings and ran to their car. They locked the doors and turned on the headlights, hoping to scare her away.
The bigfoot mother was hurt and confused. She did not mean to frighten them. She just wanted to be friendly and make contact. She tried to gesture to them that she meant no harm, but they did not understand. They kept screaming and honking the horn, hoping someone would hear them and come to their rescue.
The bigfoot children saw their mother in trouble and ran to help her. They also tried to communicate with the campers, but they only made things worse. The campers saw two more bigfoots and panicked even more. They thought they were being attacked by a pack of wild animals, and they prayed for their lives.
The bigfoot family realized that they had made a mistake. They had misjudged the campers’ reactions and intentions. They decided to leave them alone and go back to their home in the forest. They felt sad and disappointed. They had hoped to make some new friends, but instead they had made some new enemies. They wondered if they would ever find someone who would accept them and understand them. They walked away, feeling lonely and rejected.
