The Creature

When Jim starts to help Cassie with a book assigned to them in reading class, Cassie and Jim start to see an ominous creature. It looks like a vampire but slimy, dressed in black, and with a wrinkled face. What could it be?


3. You Better Run

    Yesterday was a horrible day. I went to bed and found the creature under my bed. When I woke up I heard something growl, so I jumped up; then my bed started to shake. After it stopped, I got up, looked under my bed, and screamed. But before any sound came out the creature covered my mouth.

     This morning I told Jim what happened on the way to school. We can't do anything about it, so all day I kept thinking of that creature and what would happen if we didn't help the king. At the end of seventh hour I heard a growl and just thought, "That's my stomach. I didn't eat lunch," but when I got up to ask the teacher if I could go to the girls room, I saw it. It stood right behind the teacher. I tried so hard not to scream, so I just gulped.

     It looked at me and motioned for me to come over to it, but I didn't want to go to it. The teacher would think that something was going on, and the class would laugh at me. So I took my chances and walked out the door towards the bathroom. Right before I entered the girl's room I saw it standing a few feet away from me. "Now that I'm out of class, what do you want you... you... whatever you are?"

     "What I am doesn't matter, but what the king needs is," the creature said hoarsely.

    "Well... what does the king need? Gold? Silver? What?"

    "Little girl, you're not even close. What the king needs is a fresh life," it growled.

    "What do you mean 'A fresh life'?" I whispered in a high pitch.

    "It will come to you. You will find out tonight," the creature said before it disappeared.

    Right after it disappeared the bell rang, and I went into the girl's room. When I got into the room, I went to the sink, and splashed some water on my face. This all feels like a dream to me. I just want this to be over with, but we all know you can't make something like this end that quickly.
