Critters

"be careful at night. don't wanna get caught by them critters." That's what Tony told me the first day I met him. ---- In Jackson, Mississippi, there was a rumor going on that animals or what they called them, "critters" would go crazy at night and kill anything and anyone. Toby decides to get out of Texas and move to Mississippi where his aunt is and start a life there. And on his first day there, all he heard was "The critters! I saw the critters!"

1. Chapter One

Did you hear?

About the rumors? 

Oh, you know, the crap they be sayin' 

about what be goin' on at night. 

Sometimes I feel like it ain't true,

but you never know these days.

People can be so convincing

and can twist the words

and make them sound so realistic.

All I know is that I ain't  goin' out at night.

Why, you ask?

Because I'm too young to die.

Why would I die?

Where have you been, child?

The rumors!

The...

Critters.

That's what Tony told me when I asked him why there was a man runnin' around, yellin' "The critters! I saw the critters last night!!"

So this is my first chapter! I'm so happy, because I was using another site that allows me to make stories, but it got blocked for some odd reason, but I hope this becomes a hit because it looks cool already! I'm so excited. OK, bye!!
