I kept running and running. But, slowly and silently. It shouldn’t hear us! Otherwise we are doomed. The little girl stopped. I looked back and urged her to run. She refused. I know that she is tired. We have been running for past 20 mins. Looking for a place to hide. Looking for a place to save our lives. I looked back. It was coming. I can sense it. It’s looking for us. Eager to catch us.
I looked around. Finally I saw one building.
“C’mon girl. Run!”
“ I cant”
I just scooped her in my arms and dashed towards that building. Sensing my footsteps, it also followed. Panic gripped me.
We entered that building and I started searching for rooms with doors on it. But alas! It has already destroyed all the locks on it. How clever it has become. We stumbled upon something. It was the guy who helped us yesterday. Till yesterday he was alive. But today, no more than a lifeless disfigured body. I got used to it but I turned the face of the little one away. Again I heard it coming. We broke into a run again. Finally, we entered into one room. But there was no lock for this one also. I didn’t bother closing the door. It’s just too clever. I simply switched off the lights and pushed myself and her under the bed.
It also entered the building. It looked for us.
Kept looking into each room.
Finally it came in front of our room.
And it stopped!
It entered our room.
I waited for it to leave. We held our breaths. But I could listen to my heart hammering away so loudly that I feared that IT will hear it.
It started it way out of our room. I could sense it hunger! His hunger for us! Its evil look! Finally it left.
She heaved a sigh of relief. NO! I mouthed. It heard us. It came back. I closed her mouth. I could see the fear in her eyes. She was able to see the same emotion in mine!
It came near the bed. We could see its legs. It stopped right beside the bed. I could sense that it’s looking around for the source of sound! FOR US! Then it bends down to see what’s under the bed! Slowly I saw it bending down and down and down and
“WAKE UP! YOU ARE LATE FOR COLLEGE”
I woke up to see my mom bending down to wake me up. I got up and rubbed my eyes and looked around.
Darn! It was a dream!
PS : "IT" is actually a dinosaur! but I wanted to leave it to your imagination! Nothing much of writing out here. Just felt like penning it down and so I did. Hope you enjoyed it :) Do tell me how is it written !!
