Several couples get together for a camping trip and has several things that happen to them including meeting up with a Bear.

Running through the woods, Charlotte wasn't quite sure where she was heading or what it was coming behind her.  She was just out taking pictures of the woods and some animals by herself when she heard something moving and growling, she didn't know what it was and wasn't waiting around to find out.

Night is falling soon and she is trying to locate the group she is with, she should of never left the group to go on a walk by herself.  Charlotte hears voices up ahead, not sure who it is but will be there soon, I should be coming up on the lake soon and from there I can find my group.
Hey someone is walking their dog, I asked if they know how much further it was to the lake, they said I have a quarter mile to go north of me.  I spotted the stream and started walking north, whatever was chasing me has left, whether it was tired or gave up and found something or someone else to bother less challenging.  I haven't heard it for a while now since I am back around people at least.
As she walked into camp, she sees Bill and runs up and grabs him and clinches him for comfort, he holds her and asks what is wrong?  nothing now, I was being chased by something, probably just an animal.  You know maybe you better not go out by yourself, there is Bears out here and there is safety in numbers.  Did you at least enjoy what walk you had?  yes to a certain point I did.
The sunset is coming and it looks like a glorious one as she took her camera to the lake and attach a wide angle lense to take pictures of the lake and sunset.  The sunset had a lot of colors in the sky, her boyfriend Bill walks up behind her and puts his arms around her and she jumps at the touch of him, man you are spooked, but don't worry I won't let anything happen to you, as she continues to take pictures of the campsite with the sunset in the background.
You know you are probably right it was just an animal, but it did scare me!  If your worried about it I will go with you or one of the others so you will be safe.  Safety in numbers she said. 
Bill grabs Charlotte by the arn and pulls her into an embrace to look at her in the eyes.  Bill is a pretty tall man with medium build and short black hair and sparkling blue eyes, as they kissed in the moonlight they heard howling in the distance, relax it is just coyotes, you are a city gal aren't you.
Dave comes  walking up from camp asking if they could help get some more wood for a camp fire tonight, and dinner is about ready.  Are we roasting marshmallows, better than that Smores, but for right now, just beans and dogs with some coffee for dinner.  Sounds great!  Charlotte and Bill said they would help and started gathering wood for tonights fire. 
Dave went to the left of the lake while Bill and Charlotte walked together to the right, as they walked around gathering limbs Charlotte heard the rustling noise of leaves again and became alerted .  Relax said Bill it is night fall, the night creatures are coming out to scavenger around, like skunks, possum, raccoons, bats you know they aren't out to hurt us just get some food.  We have enough wood lets head back to camp.
Sitting around the camp fire is 5 people, total 4 couples in all, the fire is going and they are serving up the dogs and beans, coffee is hot and sitting to the side of the fire.  When they walked up with the wood at hand.
Susan looks up at Dave and asks him to tell some camp fire story, your a good story teller, inventive also.  Maybe later, first lets eat! I am starving so am I said Bill, you guys are always hungry.  Charlotte says there just bottomless pits is all, they all seemed to eat in a hurry to get to the Smores that they were going to make.
