Kurt and Sebastian are going camping in the woods that Sebastian used to visit as a child to celebrate Sebastian’s birthday. But something else, something a bit more sinister, decides to interrupt their trip.
This story is based off a prompt I received a while back on tumblr from flowerfan2, who requested a camping story with some hijanks, maybe a canoe overturning. Well, that’s how it started. xD The chapters are going to be relatively short, and there will be a timestamp on the top of each to give an impression of when everything happens and how long it takes (inspired by the show 24). Warning for angst, anxiety, suspense, drama, horror, sexual content, illness, hallucinations, and action/adventure.

Warning for a slight description of Sebastian’s wound.
12:16 – 12:59 a.m.
Kurt’s entire world, every millimeter of his focus, narrows the second he catches sight of Sebastian’s arm. Kurt has never known anyone who’s suffered from a horrible, disfiguring disease, but he’s heard about them – grotesque, body-altering ailments reported on by CNN, like sepsis and gangrene and staph, MRSA, flesh-eating bacteria, and Leishmaniasis (that one he heard about on an episode of House). Then there’s the stuff his nurse stepmom Carole feels is appropriate to discuss over dinner (even though it’s really, really not), like people who went out on hikes (no big deal), got caught in freak landslides, trapped under rocks, and had to cut their own arms off with Swiss Army knives to break free, some with the addition of wolves or coyotes loitering nearby, encroaching, waiting to eat the maimed and helpless hikers alive.
Luckily for Kurt and Sebastian, there’s nothing outside their tent, waiting to eat them.
A long screech splits the sky and Kurt gasps.
At least, he hopes there isn’t.
