“Carmen, Time to deliver the bread” my mom yelled from the bottom of the stairs. 
I leaped out of my chair and ran down to my mother who was waiting for me tapping her foot. “Here is a muffin and salted beef. Don't eat it now,there is a delivery in the next town.” She said with a worried expression. 
“But…” I gulped
“ I know you might not get back by nightfall, but you are faster than the wind I know you can do it”
I ran out the door muffin in one hand and bread in the other. It was very scary thinking I might not live to see my mom again. The Creatures smelled fear, and they loved it…..but I knew i needed to hurry through the woods. If it was night when I got to town I could stay in the chapel. 
When I reached a clearing I knew I was close to town but the sun was falling. I dropped bread on the doorsteps of the clients and ran to the chapel. I made it just before the sun went to what seemed like the dark earth. There was a tall woman sitting behind the altar. Long dark hair that reached to her hips. She was calming and kind nothing like what I expected. She opened her mouth to speak “ Do you need a place to stay?” 
“Yes please I fear if not they will target my mom” I said trembling from the gargles and screams from outside.
“ I will get a magic lilly, you must sleep on the benches we have no bed but we have pillows and blankets and I will escort you home tomorrow” 
When she got back she placed the lilly on the bench and left to go to the back of the church. My eyes slowly closed as I drifted to sleep thinking of my mother at home….. worrying about me.
