December 7, 2009


Driving down the deserted road,

in the middle of the night, with my big brother by my side.

Silence all around us,

not a sound in the world.

Around us black grass and dead trees.

We start to drive faster on an unknown path.

There is no light to guide us.

We don't know where we are,

we don't know where we are going.

We just keep driving to our unknown destination.

We stop at the end of the road.

There is an abandoned house with a lit porch light.

We walk to the light, not hearing the grass hit our legs.

We are surrounded by golden grass that comes up to our hips.

I see a red balloon in the dark sky.

I look around to see that my brother is no longer around me.

I suddenly feel a hand grab my right ankle.

I am being dragged on the ground,

IT's red nose, white face, and sharp yellow teeth burn into my brain.

I try to yell but no sound comes out.

Everything goes blank.

I am truly alone.
