Chapter 4: Sound in the night
Author's note: I totally forgot how long it was between this chapter and the previous one. And since college is sucking my brain and making it harder for me to write this a piece at a time. Hope I get this right. Since I can not link pictures I made a Facebook account so theres all there in an album. Sorry if its shorter I was going to finish chaper 5 and post both of them but went against it.
Later Jack and Emily picked up their daughter. While Jack waited for his wife to clear out the back seat for their daughter.
"She wasn't a terror was she?" asked Jack ruffling his daughter's hair earning him a few giggles.
"Only a little bit other then that she behaved." smiled Amber. From the car Emily yelled saying its time to go home. Saying their good byes Amber walked back inside. Glancing around at all the clutter she signed
1 year and 58 days later
It was the time between evening and night. Slowing as the sun set so did something in Taggart's barn the creeper slowly woke. Opening one eye and gazed it down to the old man who lay on the rocking chair. Only smelling him alone was good and not so good for the creeper. It meant he had to search harder for more food. The Creeper waited for his prey to relax for a second before jumping in for the kill. Not after too long Taggart senior fell asleep due to his age. The Creeper jumped down from the wall and went straight for the mans throat. Who could only make a small gurgling before death. Eating everything of the old man that he could use before setting out for his lair.
Back at Amber's
Laying on a bed with closed curtains lay Amber dead asleep. In the trash can lay a wig. Having no need for it now that the rest of her hair grew back. Somewhere outside the country lines sat a car with a very angry women in the driver's seat. Glaring at the road a head of her Trish was gathering fuel she needed to take down the creeper
"Danny ,son its time to come in. . " calling out to her son before hearing him scream
"I will kill you." growled Trish as she started her drive to Taggart's farm after many miles Trish arrived at the house seeing that no responded at the house she went to the barn where the bat from hell once was pined. Getting out of the car with a gun ready to kill she came to a surprise that the demon had already awoken. Cursing she went back to her car and drove to the off not seeing the dead remains of the old man. As dawn was approaching quickly Trish noticed that she forgot to find a place to sleep on her mission. Driving past well almost pass Amber's house before thinking of a plan that could land her a place to stay for a while. Up in her room fast asleep Amber woke up to a knock on her door almost forgetting that it could not be Taggart .Jr since he was on vacation. Mumbling as she changed into her cloths then went to answer the door. Opening the door Amber saw an older women possible in her early forties in fashionable clothing.
"Can I use your phone my car broke down." asked the brunette women
"Sure its in the kitchen I'll show you." smiled Amber hiding her distrust for the older women walking her to the kitchen.
"Thank you so much" thanked the older women picking up the phone to call home.
"Hey its Trish I was wondering if you could pick me up." making it sound more real shed added" . . .what do you mean you can't come till the end of the month…fine." groaned Trish hanging up the phone. Looking out to the living room to see if the owner was there. Getting her attention Trish asked if she could stay for at least 23 days.
". . .Fine but if you turn out to be a psycho killer I'm not afraid to harm you." smirked Amber showing the older women named Trish the guest room.
"Thank you so much you don't know what this means to me." smiled Trish
"Euh see you later I have to go fix something outside" shrugged Amber walking out back to work on the lawn. Starting the mower Amber stared to think if this person was really speaking the truth or not. Back in the guest room Trisha was forming a plan to kill the Creeper. After going down stairs to the backyard to tell Amber that she was going to go get her stuff from her car.
"I will have my revenge." glared Trish lugging her bags to the house not seeing the police cars outside of the Taggart's home. At the Taggart's one police car and corners van parked in front of 's barn
"Doc wat ya think got Taggart?" ruffed Jart wiping sweat off his head.
"Its hard to tell almost all the organs are gone we're lucky to even tell it was him Sheriff." spoke the coroner.
"Do you want to take him back to the morgue or just bury him?" asked Jart "Hey kid remind me to call his son when we get back. . ." shouted Jart. Hearing nothing but the crows the Sheriff looked back at the coroner who looked just as confused as he was. Not even registering the shadow that flew over them only subconsciously thinking it was a bird until something chopped of the sheriffs head. And before the corner could scream his head was gone. Standing over their corpses was the bat from hell, The Creeper
