Alone in the house, I looked out the window of an empty bedroom. My was shirt was drenched in sweat, my heart beating as fast as light and I couldn’t seem to breathe normally. I couldn’t get it’s image out of my mind. It’s tall figure, but as slim as a tree branch. It’s skin was darker than the night. It’s eye’s glowed white, illuminating the rest of it’s face. The only actual features I could see was its roughly textured skin and a large hole. I couldn’t see too clearly, but I thought I saw teeth. He had the largest pair of hands I’d ever seen. It would’ve crushed me. It would’ve killed Grace. What if that’s what happened to her? Bang! I jumped and immediately turned around, ready to defend myself for what was there. It was Gabriel. He had burst his way through the locked door. His blue sweatshirt was covered in blood red stains. “We need to get out of here!” He panted. I was shocked and had many questions. “Now!” He grabbed me by the arm and tugged me out of the room. I wanted to get out of the house as well, but we needed to find Grace. We need to get out of here together. “Where’s Grace? We need to find her first,” I say. He continued to drag me along. I yanked my arm from his grip. “We need to find Grace!” “There is no Grace. I saw her. Whatever that thing was got her. I don’t know where it took her, but she’s long gone, April. Do you want to end up like her?” Without waiting for an answer, he grabbed my hand again and pulled along to go wherever he went. We stopped at the front door. Gabe stood there staring at it. He crossed his fingers before opening the door. This can’t be real. I must be hallucinating. It was the same exact house as we entered before. The same cracks and holes in the walls, the dusty staircase, the same everything. Then I saw it. It looked like it had been crouching before. It stood up tall ten feet away from us. This time, even taller. Tall enough to jump and take the ceiling with it. I opened my mouth to scream when a loud static sound filled the house. I reached up to cover my ears. It ran towards us. I ran down the hallway where the bathroom was. It was a dead end, but I remember a bathroom being there. I turned around to run back to see that a wall appeared there, too. I ran right into it, fell on my back and began to sob. I could feel my ears bleeding. The wall bulged and swelled. Soon, it ripped like a piece of paper. It was it’s large hand reaching for me. I tried backing away, but backed away into the wall. I had realized that the walls were closing in. I couldn’t escape.
