“Do you see the size of that one?” Erik shouted.
He thrust his finger towards one of the twisted trees that were scattered through the marsh. A giant mosquito perched on the rough bark, buzzing loudly. It was the largest he’d seen so far.
“Shit, don’t point at it. What if it notices us?”
The two men froze, ignoring the conventionally-sized insects that crawled over their exposed skin. The gigantic mosquito took flight and vanished deeper into the stinking marsh.
The men resumed their slog through the thigh-high water, trying to ignore the unseen things rubbing against their tired legs.
