Edward Black is waiting for engineers to pick up his broken down car but the weather takes its turn for the worst and has saw a nearby, mysterious looking house. Taking shelter is his objective and desperately enters the house. He soon finds this could be a grave mistake!

I look at the hood of my car and check to see if there is any clear sign of the problem that has damaged my car. Thick black smoke is all i can see so i step away from the front of my car. I look up to see clouds covering the moon like a blanket. Then notice clouds above my head. I close the hood of my car slightly so the rain inflicts no more damage to my car and sit in my car. I lie down in the back of the car and relax but the loud noise of rain slams on the top of my car! I sit up in anger and put my head in my hands then hear a loud scream outside of my house. It was a very high scream and the i suddenly hear it again but this time it seemed it was further away. I leave my car and run outside to check for any signs of an injured person. Its too rainy for me to enter the nearby forest and way too dark. \"Hello!?\" i scream...but a reply i was wanting i didnt get. \"Hello?!\" i repeated but yet again no reply! To catch the corner of my eye was a group of lights to reveal nothing but the silhoutte of a house and some human shadows moving around the house! I looked at my car then back at the house! To my surprise i see a shadow dart through some trees....a very fast one too! I look around to see another figure but i suddenly fall to the ground feeling nothing but a sharp bang to my head behind me.

I wake up in a mysterious house on a bed....dizzy and feeling confused. I sit up and look around and notice im in a bedroom. It was very dusty and full of cobwebs and paintings, and even saw a weapon collection full of swords and knifes! I hear footsteps coming through the door to my left. I see a flickering light like a candle through the bottom part of the door. I lie down quickly but quietly and close my eyes! I dare not move! I hear breathing, and it seemed heavy! I heard humming of a tune but it doesnt seem familiar! His footsteps circle the bed and going from left, middle and right then right, middle and left then he sighs then leaves the room. I open my eyes to quickly check if hes there but he is gone! I gathered he was a man from the humming and the low voice. I remember the knife and sword set and sneak out of the bed and quietly open the collection. I pick up a sharp and light knife. I slowly move to the door and peek my head round the door, then a loud bang is heard from downstairs. It didnt sound like any natural object like a mirror or cupboard as the last time i checked no household object growled furiously! I see a door... Looking like an exit...but a figure darts past a nearby door opposite me! I quickly take cover back behind the wall and crouch. I hold the blade and point it to the wall for an easy stab. A fist slams to the right of me and grabs my right leg tightly and shouts! I was going to stab his hand but to risk the danger of stabbing my leg too im not willing to take! I punch his hand repeatedly! He screams in pain as i scream in anger! He lets go and i look for an easy escape! No escape but the door is there for me. I run through the door and see a fist head for my face, but i block and push the man away from me! A quick glance of the man was all i needed to see what he looked like! A scar runs down his left sheeck and his eye! Chubby circular face and yellow teeth, and a very young man with brown hair, short. I run to the stairs and run down them and lunge for the handle of the door for my escape! \"its locked....Damn!\" i say in desperation! The man charges for me and holds a knife in his hand. I tackle him to the ground a with great impact, force the knife into his chest! He screams in pain, but i have no time for him wether he is dead or not! Injured i leap off him and stand up. I look for any nearby object but then the man whistles! A massive creature slams through the fragile wooden ceiling! With two fiery and furious red eyes, it looks at me and with fear i scream!

With sharp spiky claws and a tall body, and a spiky back with horns behind its wolf like ears and stands on all four legs it shouts and charges for me! I duck and roll to evade the swing of its claw i pull the bloody knife from the dead man! I run for another door across the hall and \"yes, its open\" i say and close the door behind me! I run and see old, mouldy bodies in chains hanging from the ceiling with there inside hanging out. With a tear in my eye i run for my life and see another door! Its locked so i do what i shouldve done a long time ago, i bash the door down with anger and with my adrenaline i sprint to the light behind a curtain! I jump incase its a window and hear the shatter of glass! \"SMASH\" is all i hear behind me an i slam to the ground! I stand up and turn around and see the creature run towards me! I take a lucky throw with the knife and feel pain rush through my chest! I am forced back with great speed and distance and is slammed of a tree! On my stomach i fall to the ground on my stomach! A puddle of blood surrounds me! I reach into my pocket and reach for my phone! I look for any bars on my phone but from four bars to none i lose all senses as the darkness swallows me!
