So I wrote this when I was nine years old. I was a bit bored so I just typed this up and it's been sitting on a memory stick ever since. It's not great (I was young) but enjoy.

Wolftooth forest was a dark, forbidding area of woodland. The trees were dead looking and overgrown. They stood there like giant stick insects, wedged in the ground. At day it looked like any ordinary Norwegian forest, but at night you could hear the howls of wolves and the caw of crows, and the air is heavy, as if fear itself hung in the air like drapes of ragged cloth. There would be shadows creeping around like phantoms. It was like being in a nightmare. In the centre of the forest was a cemetery. Some say that a hulking ape-like creature with claws as long as skewers, and fangs as sharp as daggers lived in it. One man, a lumberjack, didn’t believe the rumour. One summers day, he was trying to cut down a massive tree that towered over the rest in the dark forest. It stood near the cemetery, like an ancient church steeple. The day was turning to night. It was the evening – the shadows were beginning to creep, the trees were beginning to creak. The man started to head home. He heard a twig snap. He walked faster. Something was following him. He started to run. Across the leaf strewn forest floor, he ran as anxiousness grew inside him. The very forest itself seemed to scream as ringing started in his ears. All he managed to force out of his mouth was a frightened gurgle as a razor sharp claw slit his throat.
