An Angel In The Darkness
a short story written by Austin Moreland
for his sis in loving memory of her Grandpa...

Once upon a time there was a little girl named Guppy she loved her name because someone very special gave her that name when she was little because she could not say her real name properly when she was young which is Gabby..

Guppy was in the mall one day with her friends when she heard this sound coming from one of the stores, wondering what that sound was she wandered off without her friends even noticing she was gone, she went up the elevator searching for the store the sound was coming from and the sound was getting louder and louder, suddenly she seen the store where the sound was coming from she walked up to the store looking in its windows but she could not see anything it was so dark inside but there it was that sound again and it was coming from inside the store.

Even thou guppy was scared she felt that sound pulling her into the store she must find out what it is, so with trembling legs she walked slowly into the store looking and listening for the slightest sound she looked behind her to see if any of her friends could see where she was but they could not but she kept going, the sound seemed like it was coming from the very back of the store in the darkest corner.
She walked towards the sound with her fists tense at the side of her willing herself to take another step then another, she finally reaches the spot in the store were the sound was at its loudest, there was this strange black curtain as dark as the night itself moving gently as if there was a breeze, little Guppy reached her little hand out to open the curtain when this wrinkly old hand with huge nails like claws reached out the curtain and grabbed her by the hand and Guppy screamed and screamed but no one could hear her as the hand pulled her towards the curtain and towards the darkness.

Just as she was about to give up to her fate of whatever creature was behind the curtain there was a ball of light came swooping into the store bright as can be and the creature let out a scream like nothing you could ever imagine and let go of the little girls hand and she turned and started to run away from the terrifying creature but as she was running toward the door of the store she noticed the ball of light was no longer just a ball of light but she could make out the figure of a man within the light and as she got closer and closer to the light the man reached out with his hand open as if to say it`s okay you can take it and the little girl did and she looked up at the mans face and she realized she knew who it was and as she did the man knelt down in front of the little girl and said,
It`s okay little one grandpa is here you are safe now...

The End......
