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!"

2. Chapter Two

Lemme tell you about the rumors that

I've been hearing lately.

The rumors have been going on for about 

I don't know, a couple months.

It was probably some dumb teenagers tryin'

scare the old folks here.

It worked though, I'll give them credit for that.

They said that at night, the animals for some reason

go all crazy and nuts because a witch put a spell on 'em.

So every time that sun go down, you can hear them making 

noises, hunting other animals or killing people that decide to 

go out at night.

And some of 'em kill like humans kill.

They can walk and run if they need to.

I don't know, it doesn't sound that bad, but the stuff that I be hearing

from other people, creep me out.

I don't usually get scared of things, but this one got me messed

up forreal. 

 

And I used to go out, ya' know.

Hang with my partners, go to the bar and get drunk and mess around.

But now I don't because of these damn rumors.

I know, I know, they just rumors.

Well if they're just rumors, how come Miss ole Perry went missing

all of a sudden?

Yeah, she did!

And she usually goes out at night, because her stupid cat don't know

how to stay in the house.

She always out there calling "Here, kitty kitty kitty.

I got some tuna for ya.

I know you hungry.

Here, kitty kitty kitty."

Oh, and what else people be sayin' is that she must've gotten eaten from the

critters.

And people be sayin' that her soul goes roaming the town gettin' back at the

people who did her wrong, sayin'

"Here, kitty, kitty, kitty." 

 

---

Tony sure knows how to scare people. I ain't gone lie I was frightened, but that don't mean I gotta believe what he sayin'. He could just be messin' with me. It's my second day in Mississippi. Lot of black folks, but that's okay, there's black people in Texas. And I get along with black people. I ain't got nothing against them. I'm just here to find a job and start my next chapter in life, not run away because people like to scare folks. I met  Tony yesterday because I asked him about that crazy man yellin' critters. He told me to come back tomorrow if I wanna know more about it. 

Signing out,

Toby
