\"Hey mom! Where are we going,\" asked the young boy in the back seat.

\"You'll see sweetheart,\" replied his mother. \"Are you and your friend hungry?\"

\"Henry wake up,\" said the boy shaking his friend. \"You awake? Hungry?\"

\"Sure Jasper, I'm not starving but I could eat.\"

\"Mk. Mom can we stop somewhere?\"

\"Sure. There's a gas station up ahead, here's ten bucks and get yourselves a snack. Ill make diner when we get there,\" said Jasper's mother, handing him the money.

\"Thanks mom,\" said Jasper and he and Henry rushed off towards the station.

While they were gone, Jasper's mother pulled out her cell phone and called her husband. \"Hey it's me, Nancy...Calling to make sure your on you way...Ok good, well the boys and I are at a gas station...Really? Hey i think i can see you...Ok, see you soon.

A white car pulled up and Jake Jones, Nancy's husband, pulled up beside Nancy's white car. \"Nancy,\" he called in greeting, going over to her and giving her a hug. \"Where are the boys?\"

\"I sent them to get food but they haven't come back. They've been gone a while. Should we check on them?\" Leading the way, Nancy opened the door to the gas station. First thing she saw was the scattered chip bags all on the floor.

Then she saw the blood.

When  Nancy froze from shock and fear, Jask pushed around her and saw the blood. Going towards, Jake located the source and sighed with relief when he didn't reconize the body.By this time, Nancy had joined him and they started calling the kid's names.

At the end of the aisle they saw a foot and rushed towards it. Nancy cried out when they saw Henry, his body riddled with knife wounds. His hand seemed to be reaching pleedingly out in front of him, pointing at a freezer. Going slowly foward, Nancy and Jake reached the freezer. Upon opening it, Jake discovered a long, dark hallway.

Shuffling foward slowly, Jake and Nancy pushed on, still no sigh of their son. They picked up speed when they heard their sons voice, begging for help. Entering a dark room, their eyes already adjusted thanks to the dark corridor, Nancy and Jake could just make out their son it what appeared to be a dark pit.

Throwing down a penny, they discovered that the pit was actually a very deep hole. A crunched beind them alerted the Jones to the fact that they were not alone anymore. Jasper started to whimper, unaware that his parents where there to help him. Nancy and Jake pressed themselves against the wall.

The thing that entered shined a flashlight right on Jasper and we were all able to see the horrific drop benneath him. What was even scarier then the drop was the thing that entered. It had the eys of a human, the teeth of a shark, the nose of a snake, the ears of a bat, the hands of a crab, and the legs of a goat. With a roar, Jake threw himself at the beast but the beast had leapt for Jasper. Nancy watched in horrow as her husband fell down the deep hole. A dull thud echoed up to them when his body hit the bottom. Both Jasper and Nancy knew instantly that the fall had killed him. With what sounded like a laugh, the creature cut Jasper lose and laughed more as he plummeted to his death. Nancy stepped out to face the beast but found that it had vanished. Casting about, Nancy tried to find the beast and didn't hear his approach. With a strange laugh, the creature stabbed Nancy in the center of her chest and she fell after her family.

Now I, the author, suspened above where Jasper was only moments ago, know for sure that I am next. This is my tenth day hanging here, watching as the bodies just kept falling for the creatures traps. When I first arrived, you couldn't hear the bodies hit the bottom. Now, you can just make it out. I pray you get this story and are warned of the danger. I wish I could tell you exactly where I am but alas, the address escapes me. Best of luck and farwell my friend.
