Walking through the streets of my city at time seemed like a good idea at the time. I wanted to get away from my parents who were constantly fighting. The air was brisk and cold as it lightly brushed my cheeks. Glancing at the top of my building the moon had a solemn look to it.  Taking another glance I looked at the very voluminous buildings around where I was living then began my walk.

  All a sudden a brazen sound erupted in my ears coming from behind me. I jumped at the noise and quickly turned around in a dauntless effort. A man in all black looked almost grotesque was behind me. In his hands gleamed a long hooked knife. I attempted to expostulate with him, but he only continued to approach in a very slow way. This wasn’t like any reverie I’ve ever had this was real… I began to run as fast as I could all the way to the docks by the city’s inlet in a attempt to lose the man. But it didn’t matter how much I wanted to endeavored to get away from him. His knife raked at my back and I felt the warmth of his breath.  How could I get away? I questioned to myself. I saw another man walking the street whose decorum seemed normal. I screamed at the top of my lungs at him.

 When he turned around to face my direction his red eyes pieced through my soul. He gave a wicked smirk he sharp teeth shined with melancholy, as he too ran after me. My legs and breath began to wither. I felt a sense of pain and hopelessness as I fought myself to continue on. I reached the dock and they disappeared. I slumped to the ground in a effect to catch my breath. Feeling my back I felt the slashes the man had inflicted upon me. When I brought my hands back in front on me they were covered in blood. Tears leaked from my eyes as the real pain set in. All a sudden I heard footsteps behind me.

“Are you alright miss?” I turned around in a quick almost happy way for I haven’t seen a sane person since I left my house. “No, I was attacked by these two men.” I said softly. The man was a fisherman, I assumed do to the bucket of fishing supplies he held. “Why not come with me miss and we’ll call the police?” I agreed and followed him to his office. We called the police with his office phone, and he gave me a towel for my bloody back as we waited. “You’re safe now miss I won’t let them get you.” I thanked him and we waited.

It started to rain and thunder outside and the lights began to flicker. Then all a sudden the lights went out. I let out a scream. “Don’t worry miss I’ll be right back. I’m going to go fix the lights.” He left and I stared out at the glass window as the rain pelted the window.  I heard an all too familiar brazen sound from outside…no way. I thought to myself as the man with red eyes and sharp teeth and the man with the knife appeared in the window. No way!!!!! I screamed as the man broke through the window. The other man soon followed the other into the window. The y backed me into the wall I let out a scream as the knife was jammed into my body. I slumped to the ground unable to move my blood oozing out onto the tile below me. The pain left me in shock. My breathing became short and hopeless as the man with the sharp claws dug into my flesh tearing me into pieces…Life left my being. Leaving me into darkness I saw a faint light at the end, I ran to it. Suddenly I awoke it my room with the sunlight coming through my window. Was it all just a dream?
