SHADOW

The night was cold and lonley. people were in there houses either sleeping or watching t.v. Thats all it ever was like in this small town.

Until one night, someone was washing dishes and heard a big crashing noise outside there door. They were too scared to open the door, but they were too eager.

Once they opened the door, there face was wrapped in fear. the expression on there face was as frightening as what they have seen. The creature leaves and the person passes out. But when they wake up, they find themselves at there nieghbors house.

" What happened to you last night?" Said the nieghbor.

" I have no idea, i cant remember a thing. But i do remember seeing this awful looking creature standing right on my doorstep! Oh, it was all just too awful!"

"im sure it was just a dream, mam."

"Ahh. maybe your right, i should just relax."

That night a person went missing.

Her name was Abigale, and she was 17 years old. She was at the top of every class she had and she had a very good reputation. People would kill to be friends with her.

Appearently, she saw the same thing the first person did. So people are thinking that she couldnt have gone far.

This creature seems very powerful, but can only be found at night.

Two years have gone by and still no sign of Abigale.

Eventually, people named the creature "Shadow" because he can only be seen or found in darkness.

Another year flew by and some clues were found.

1. a piece of blonde hair.

2. a cigarette butt.

3. a whistle.

People werent completely sure that those were some evidence of the disappeaence of Abigale, but they knew they were pieces of Abigale that were missing.

Abigale had long, beautiful blonde hair.

She had a bad smokeing habbit that took place shortly after her mother died of cancer.

And she had always wore a bright, silver whistle around her neck that her father gave to her before he was shipped off to Viettnam.

The first person who had seen this "Shadow" creature had died of a heart attack one year ago, so there was no helping the investigating.

the mystery of the "Shadow" remains.
