I repeat this over and over again in my head as I race towards my house.
If I can just get inside.
The thing won't be able to get me.
I'll be safe
But I hear it.
Right behind me.
So close that I can feel it's hot breath on the back of my neck.
I scream as it's claws take across my back.
I collapse in pain, and the monster leaps on me.
I don't know what it is.
Just that it's hungry.
And I didn't live long enough for the neighbors to hear my screams.
