I waited silently, not daring to move, not even to breath. I crouched behind the car door, curled up in the tightest ball possible; hoping I would never be found. Coming towards me was a huge figure. I swallowed the lump in my throat, which was threatening to choke me. I waited. “Ahhh chooo,” a nasty sneeze escaped. Suddenly, it happened.
The figure turned around, with a machete in his hand, he swung a powerful slash. Ouch, I tried to scream, but my lips just stayed still. He cut deeply into my arm. I stood there shaking, I felt my blood draining . I heard a loud dripping noise through my left ear. The creature’s flesh suddenly turned inside out. His veins were juiced with red blood, bugs were chewing deeply through his skin. I pivoted in the air with fear, I sprinted as fast as I could down the highway the car was parked on. It felt like I’d already run for hours. My heart was about to explode, I was gasping for air. I slowed
down. Out of the corner of my eye was a sign; ‘3 km to town’ my mouth dropped as well as my body. I then said to myself “3 kms to town, it’s all over.”
The creatures car skidded to a stop in front of me. He jumped out of his car; his sharp blade slowly moved closer to my throat. As the blade touched my skin, a loud noise was heard, ‘Bang’. The sound frightened me, it sounded like a gunshot. The creature fell sidewards and hit his head on his car. Sheriff Tom was luckily there to shoot the figure. The scared look in my face, slowly brightened up. I shook Tom’s hand. He squashed my hands so tight, then he started changing into the creature he killed. I didn’t know what was happening. I fainted as his gun moved closer to my throat.
“Chloe, Chloe.” I was woken up from my mothers shakes.
“Chloe its time to go to your little cousins monster party.”
“Oh no. It was all a dream.” I said with joy.
