The Dark Shadow by Charbel

I wake up to a beautiful summers’ morning, birds tweeting on twitter, the clock ticking, everything is perfect. I then realise, the clock ticking… was not the clock. There was a dark, black, shadowy creature tapping the wall. I was paralyzed. The door slowly opened. I scream in terror.

I am running as fast as I can until… everything turns black. I wake up in the back of a van, I am extremely scared… the van starts shaking. The tires screech as the van slides along the road. The van stops…

I am being pulled out by the same black figure that was in my room. I try my hardest not to move or talk. I am being dragged back into my house. I slowly reach into my pocket and a pair of scissors! I take it out and I hit the creature’s leg with it.

The creature falls to the ground and makes a terrible sound so loud that the world could hear it. I dragged myself along the floor hoping I could get away. The dark figure then gets back up and runs towards me. I felt slimy stuff on my leg and at that moment I knew I was done for.
