Believe me when I say that I am not someone who scares all that easily. I mean, if someone jumps out at me, obviously I'm going to scream. But in regards to being alone at night or watching a scary movie, I like to think that I can hold my own pretty well. However, after becoming a diehard Pretty Little Liars fan, I've grown somewhat cautious about certain things these days — like taking late night strolls in a creepy forest, for example. Those of you who watch PLL know that nothing good ever comes from being out in the woods. I mean, just think of all the horrifying things that have taken place in a forest-like setting throughout the series. In fact, the bunker where the Liars are currently being held prisoner in, is located deep within — you guessed it — the woods. Ergo: woods = a very bad place to hang out.
I'm all for enjoying the benefits of nature and everything, but there are just so many places someone (namely A) could hide in there. So while you may think you're on a fun, family camping trip, PLL fans know better and understand the type of danger that could be lurking around every branch. In this situation, trees are not your friend, people. They are the evil barrier preventing you from seeing what's behind them. Do I sound a little paranoid? Heck yeah. But when you've experienced the drama surrounding Rosewood, paranoia is the best survival strategy you have.
So if you're a hardcore member of the PLL club like me, chances are you've experienced these thoughts upon finding yourself in a woodland area.
"No cell signal? I'm screwed!"
Good rule of thumb: Never trust any place that doesn't allow you the use of your phone. Never.
"Do you think all of these birds are working for A?"
We know that A has minions everywhere, so if you ask me, you can never be too careful. Those tweets sound suspicious.
"Is that A or just the wind?"
Every single noise practically sends your heart rate into overdrive.
"If I were to hide behind this bush, does that make me A?"
*quietly repeats to self: "I am not A. I am not A. I am not A."*
"OMG, that's a dead body!"
False alarm. It's just a really weird looking rock.
"I bet Little Red Riding Hood was in cahoots with A."
Think about it. She was always in the woods and she wore a red coat. That's basically a red hoodie. Boom! One mystery down, only a thousand more to go.
"I wish Caleb was here to back me up."
That guy has the power to make every situation seem better.
"When did my whole life become about PLL?"
Just between you and me, though, it's totally worth it.
"Are we out of the woods yet?"
Sorry, not sorry.
