the basis of this story is that your live in a world were big creatures have suddenly come to your world and most of mankind has been killed. all sort of monsters live in the world now. we follow you though this world and its secrects

I ran. I ran as fast as I could. I could hear it; it was far away, but it still sounded like it was right behind me. As the ground rumbled, the grass wavered like it was in the wind, despite the lack of any. I ran into the town and down the highway. I looked back and saw them. A towering shadow figure, higher than the trees and buildings. It looked like a man, but the face was covered by a mask with no holes in it, and blood drawn as a mouth, smiling. I called them ‘antlers’ because of the big antlers on their heads. They carried spears and bows to hunt. I knew what they were hunting, us. I keep running, along buildings, trees, fences, and roads to keep me out of sight of them.

I was close to getting out of the city until I heard a scream. It went all through my body, all the way to my bones. I was horrified. I looked around. I knew that there were others than me, but I hadn’t seen any in days, weeks, months even. I started walking towards the scream, slowly. There it was again, the scream but this time it was worse. It sounded like a big animal dissolving in acid, it wasn’t human. I started to turn back around, but something caught my foot. I had stepped into a hole in the ground, which was not deep, but something in it was holding my foot down. I tried to get it out, but then I saw it. A hand wrapping around the skyscraper, the fingers long with fingernails gone and blood dripping down like heavy rain in October. The antlers came around with the mask, the mask the most disturbing thing about them. They used their own blood to draw on it, to make up for their lack of a face.

The body was marked with wounds and satanic signs. The antlers were big, and some parts were broken off. The missing antler pieces were quickly replaced, as they started to grow back at an inhuman speed. I started to panic as it began to come more out of the shadows. As I started to get more loose, I saw the antlers other hand move up to its face. It clasped its fingers around the mask and removed it. I had never seen them remove their masks before. The mask covered up a black emptiness. It screamed as the hole started to light up red. The light started from the abdomen, moving upwards as to form a bright, red light. I got free of the hole, but I was frozen in place, I could feel my bones shiver. The red light went through the city, it was looking for me. I tried to get my legs to move but just as I did, it was too late. The light became small, zooming in on the like the aperture of a camera. It had found me.

The rumbling ground shook me out of the frozen state I was in, and I started to run. It was the antlers dogs. they were as high as the houses, double the height of me at least. They ran on all fours, and they did not have a face either, they had a triangle like structure sticking out of what would have been their heads. The triangle structures emitted a red light, which they probably used as their eyes. I ran into a house around the corner, and I slammed the door shut. I locked it and ran up what was left of the stairs. I pulled out my ax and stood ready at the door. I was quiet. I could hear the Antlers footsteps come closer. I could hear the dogs run right by the house. I was safe. Suddenly, the roof came off and the hand grabbed me hard and pulled me out. I saw the demon-like antlers hollow face. It had some teeth, but most were gone. I screamed but nothing helped, I was a goner. It held me in the air as I stared down into its mouth. It was all black but a little speck of red down at the bottom. Then It let loose.
