My eyes fluttered open. The bright, white light of the sun burst into my room. I smiled and streched my arms above me, as they ached, taking a deep breath of the cold autumn air as I did so.

"Alexis , are you awake?" I asked the little shape that was huddled inside of the blanket.

Her head suddenly popped out of the bed covers. A look of fear and panic came accross her face. She looked deathly white, She pulled her left arm out of the bedcovers and showed me. A fresh bite mark was placed on her wrist, a dog bite mark? It must be. I traced my left forefinger over the top. Inside my head a devilish laugh came out of no where.

"Stay here." I told her.

I quickly jumped out of my bed and ran to my parents room. The hard wooden floorboards creeked as I did so. As soon as I got to my parents room I  opened the door, letting it slam on to the wardrobe. Dad jolted upright and looked worridly at me.

"What's wron.."

"It's Alexis ; she's hurt!" I shouted over him.

He jumped out of his bed grabbing the first aid box which lay inside the wooden cabnit that was placed behind the open door. After this he rushed to my room. Strange noises had started to sound from inside. It sounded like Alexis was struggleing to breath, as though someone was throttleing her. We burst into her room. A man who was wearing black, ripped shorts and a blue turtle kneck jumper was standing by the bed, with a pitbull that was held a back by a thick piece of rope. The boys skin was white as snow, his eyes red like blood and his left hand was covered in red blood.

On the bed a man was on all fours. His arms looked like it was only musscle, the veins where extremely prominant. His skin, again, was a deathly snow white too. He had his big, white hands around Alexis's limp kneck. I closed my eyes, doing nothing, and looked away. Her kneck was shaking up and down her eyes going completely white.

"STOP!" My dad yelled on top of his voice.

The two strange men, or one man, a boy and a dog looked straight at him. I ran over to look at Alexis and to try and get her to breathe. I checked for a pulse, while dad fort off the strange man and pushed him out of my massive great, oak window.

There was a pulse, so I started to push hard down on her chest.
