A girl named Kylie is riding her bike when she spots an apple at the base of a tree.  She gets off her bike to go pick it up, but when she turns around her bike is gone.  She looks up and finds that her bike is up at the top. She tries to climb the tree, but pulls a fishing pole out instead of grabbing a branch. She falls to the ground. She throws the fishing pole to the side and tries again, but the second time she pulls a kite out.  She gets irritated by this.  She looks over to the fishing rod and decides to go fishing for her bike.  She snags it the first time and is able to get the bike down, but as she is about to ride away the tree slams down and picks her and the bike up.  Then we see the girls feet dangling from the tree (might have a cracking sound then have her feet go limp) and we see them slowly moving up as if the tree is sucking her up.
