was getting worse. Lightning flashed and thunder shook the house.
Suddenly the lights went out. I heard something growl outside the
door followed by ear-piercing howls. The door suddenly shook
against its hinges. I ran over to it and locked the door. The
banging continued and I sprinted up the stairs to my room.
The lock broke. The door burst open and the wild
hounds bolted through the small doorway. Their over-sized claws
clanked on the wood floor as they searched. Searched for me. I
put every heavy object that was in my room in front of my door.
The mutated, over-sized dogs continued through the house for what
seemed an eternity.
The large pack could barely fit into the house. I
estimated about twenty of them were inside the house and another
twenty of the beasts were outside. I shook with fear as another
crack of thunder moaned in the dreary, dark sky.
The lead tracker of the pack was the first to find the
girl's scent. He howled to the largest, strongest, most
terrifying male of the pack. The Alpha male, Voltage. As soon as
Voltage heard the alarm, he and the Alpha female, Paralyze,
guided the pack up the stairs and to the girl's room. The
tracker, Agony, would be rewarded after their meal.
I kept quivering with fear. I couldn't stop. My
breathing quickened as I heard the sound of large paws thudding
on the wood stairs. I ran over to the window and looked out of
it. My breath caught at the sight I saw. The dogs that were
outside were using their long and deadly claws to climb the side
of the house! Just as I was about to run to my closet, the door
and all the things I had put in front of it flew across the room
and smashed into the window sending the glass flying everywhere
like tiny diamonds.
I huddled in the corner, shaking with more uprising
fear. I felt like screaming my lungs out at the sight I saw next.
The floorboards creaked and quivered with each step of the mutant
wolves. But that wasn't the thing that terrified my very soul and
being. It was the largest one. The biggest brute that scared me
out of my wits. He roared a snarl, eying me with only one eye. He
seemed to be blind in the other for it was scarred severely. His
teeth were those of a saber toothed cats and his jet-black fur
rustled in the wind that was coming from the shattered window.
The deadly animal roared another growl in my direction and
narrowed his glowing, deep blue eye. He got down low on his
gigantic paws and lunged himself at me as I awaited my horrible
I awoke sweat-drenched from the horrific dream I had
just had. I felt as though I was on fire. I looked over at my
clock. 3:13 AM. I switched on the light and gasped at what I saw
at the foot of my bed. Voltage.
