"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!"

8. Chapter Seven


"Haven't You heard?"

"We're the Critters."


My hands start to shake and sweat.

"Nah, this i-is just some joke or whatever. Y'all got me I'm scared, now you can quit tryin' to and come out now." I said with a nervous chuckle.


More silence.

"H-hello?" I call out.

I hear more shuffling, almost as if they're circling me.

"You think we're lyin'? You think we ain't real?" This time the voice sounded angry.

"We are the Critters at night that hunt and scare humans. We are the rumors. We are the nightmares people be gettin'. But one thing we ain't, are liars."


"I-I'm sorry for calling you liars." I said, stuttering.


"You still wanna see us?" They ask.

I don't answer.

"Then fine."

Then out of nowhere a deer comes out of the woods. And another one. An owl comes flying and lands on a tree branch on my right. Another flock of birds are sitting on a tree branch. A few raccoons come out of a bush. A family of grey big rabbits come hopping from my left. The animals stare at me and I stare at them.

Are they gonna leave or what? I thought.

Then all of a sudden the first deer that came out stands on its back legs. Then the other deer. The owl opens its wings out. The raccoons stand up and so do the bunnies. I take a step back.

The the deer speaks.


And then they start chasing me. I scream and run as fast as I can. The owl and the birds fly above me. The bunnies and raccoons chase behind me almost catching up. The woods is now loud from all the Critters making noises.

"You think you can hide from us? We know EVERYTHING."

I run.

"We will find you Toby. Oh don't you worry."

The owl stoops down and scratches me on my cheek.

I yell in pain.

"We will hunt you."

The birds fly down and peck and pull at my hair.

"And we..."

Where the hell is my house? I thought. I must've went in too deep.


The raccoons scratch and bite my ankles. I yell in pain again and run even faster.


It seemed like once whoever said that, the Critters got even louder. I run into a thorn of bushes and fall. I scramble to my feet and run again. It almost seemed like they were laughing at me. A branch smacked me in the face. I finally make it home. I stumble with my keys tryna find the right key to the lock.

"See you later, Toby."

I finally get the right key and unlock the door. I slam it shut and lock it. I go to every window and lock then pull the curtains to cover it and go to every door and lock it. I finally catch my breath and just sit and think about what the hell just happened. I go to my couch and lay down. I didn't realize it, but I dozed off.

See you later, Toby...


Well that was... interesting. I hope you liked it. I haven't updated that much on here I'm trying really hard, it's just my schedule is busy. Like and/or comment or don't doesn't matter. Love you!
