When you see the golden brown, chestnut leaves; when you hear the children jumping with joy into the pile of crackling leaves; when you receive the warm, breathtaking hot chocolate, then you know autumn is near. Seeing the deep crimson leaves made me feel like a baby bird in its nest protected by its mother. I heard a rustle in the leaves. I walked on, as the leaves rustled, I shook uncontrollably making me sweat like a beast. I walked onÂ trying to ignore it, but it felt like a lion was scratching me.Â Guess what was there, a cat!
