Once again the roar of thunder broke the eerie silence of the night. It was raining hard and I could hear the bats flipping their wings through the dead silence of the night.

I couldn’t tell what it was. I was in a rush and I couldn’t think of what to do.

I was also scared to look around because of the fear to see something I didn’t want to. I looked around but all I could see was the lonely tree and the silence of the night.

It had white hair and yellow teeth that had the worst smell ever, but this did not concern me at that moment. However, it was its big eyes that made it look evil. At that moment I realized he wasn’t one of us. Trembling with fear, I looked hard into its mean eyes and I stood still as a statue.

I wanted to let out a loud scream so someone could help me but I was helpless. I couldn’t even breathe so how was I supposed to scream for help. I stood up and tried to run away.

While I was looking behind and running as fast as I could, I think I smashed into a tree. Waking up in the morning, I was surprised to find myself alone in a hospital room.
