Walking through the streets at night it was strangely quiet. The scratch of something in the sewers the paranoia was setting in. the street lights flickered the screaming of the cats nearby. Going through the alleys was quicker getting home the sound of footsteps startled me as I emerged from the first alley and into the bright light. I scuttled across the road into the next alley it was longer than the last but I was nearly home now, as I raced to the end of the alley .A shadow. I peered around the corner there was a sense of nothingness inside I felt weak. I kept running I heard footsteps. As I ran faster the footsteps got louder and louder, home at last. I opened the door. The burning light beamed in and cut through the darkness I stepped in I shut the door, it slammed. I walked up stairs to my bedroom I went to close my curtains but I saw something it was a man with a bloody knife. I shut my curtains and turned around .he was there. Sitting in the corner of my room it walked over to me. I looked at the door .it opened. mum walked in I looked back where this thing was it was gone!
