I started to breath again. The chains in my ankle twitched and the shadow continued to stare. A silent cry and a few signs of life 1began to form. 2 I had no idea.3 I raised it. 4I had to do something. I had to see to it. I had to. I was going to find out. I was going to get away from this 5thing. I couldn't let it get me. My adrenaline was kicking in and I couldn't stop myself. 6 But the chains! The chains! How was I to get myself free? 7I was losing my mind! I couldn't move. The creature was there with me. What was it doing? 8 Then I something. The beast was chained also. We were both prisoners in this place. But why? Who was responsible for this? 9As we stood there in silence I heard a loud noise. Metallic creaks and shuffling. I was frozen in place. All of a 10sudden the creature had the power to force itself out of the opening and into the hallway. I heard something hit. A loud thud. 11 Looked like chains being dragged on the floor, coming toward us behind the door. What was it? 12What was it? What was I doing? The creature then pointed towards the door. The things hand was still dragging it. I 13screamed for what seemed like hours. I was screaming and the creature was screaming in agony. I could now see the figure rummaging 14 "You are not alone. Together we can escape," it whispered in my ear, his hand holding mine. 15 As we stumbled into the hall, in the light I could finally see the face of what I previously called a creature 16. It had no nose, it had a huge teeth and a long hooved finger. It had a human like face. It was glistening. I couldn't 17speak, I was screaming now. I was speechless. 18 It was shaking... "I was a human once.." it whispered, tears falling down to its noseless face. "This... this place..." before it can finish19 , I suddenly started to hear footsteps outside. 20A man in a black hoodie came to me. I continued to stare at the creature. 21 Out of options, my only hope was to lure it towards me & attempt to choke it out with the chains 22. It had to pull me down. I could feel its hot breath coming over me. The creature pulled the chains out it was ready. I was 23so afraid of what I might do. The creature ran up my neck. I was so tired I held up my hand and slowly began pushing on my shoulder. As 24I did I could hear the footsteps coming closer. 25 I didn't get enough air any more. I only could look at the door. 26I was beginning to hear the creature still chanting as it started to move. I heard a chainsaw groaning as it was being 27slaughtered. I started to feel a cold breeze brush against my face. 28 The creature was moving to me. IT'S NO HUMAN! I was frozen. What was it? 29I started to panic again. There was blood on my hands. He was chanting , I could only make out ''I'm here!'' I looked 30around, no one was there. 31 I only known, I wanted to survive this terrific situation. And then I discovered it. 32It stood about 4 feet away from me. I thought it was a man. I couldn't make out his face, but I could tell he was wearing a mask. 33

He must have heard me as it stepped towards the creature as I stood there completely confused. The creature stared at me... 27But the man started to sway in the other direction. I watched the creature slowly rushing towards him as he ran. 28 The man FIRED four rounds into the creature's torso, felling it. He inched forward, put another four in its head 29at the creature, & turned around and fell onto the floor with a sickening thud. The creature had stopped moving. It looked down 30at me, looked me dead in the eyes, and smiled. So soon it was gone. 31

'The creature... the creature... it's serving us... It has grown to our grave... I 20have been here since then... it has been a month since I have been in this cave... 21 I felt like all hope was gone, evil satanic laughter manifested "leave me alone!" I yelled 22. It was the sound of my own footsteps. 'What the fuck are you doing?!' I shouted at the creature. 'What do you want?!' 23It started shaking. 'YOU ARE MINE! I AM NOT THE FUCKING CREATURE! I AM ALIVE! YOU ARE MY FAMILY! YOU ARE MY FAMILY!' I was a 24little concerned but I didn't want to stay any longer. 'You can fucking die!' I screamed. 25 He, the creature suddenly dispeared into thin air & I stood puzzle "what the fuck" three identical girls about no older than 8 years wearing the same matching red dress you wear to church as a young girl surrounding me. You pathetic mortal one of the girls said to me. 26I looked at her and she smiled. I watched as she spoke to me when she said 'I am always watching you.' 27 "What the fuck going on!?"I cried, the three girls started to giggle holding each other's hands dancing around me as if they was playing ring around the rosie. "Your Feeding us your sanity" one of the girls whisper, laughter started grew louder "tasteful sanity!" 28I could feel my heart beating faster as I stared at the girl who did not seem to be a creature of God. I was going to 29pounce. 30

His hands were cold & rubbery, but gentle. It reminded me of the fairy tale of Beauty and The Beast. .6 My son, my own blood. Deformed. Starring at me. So gentle, but doomed.
