Escaping
by Sophie


Hey! My name is Miles. I had a tough life, if I do say so myself. I'll tell you my story..... I was at home watching news on TV when this person started screaming. I was a little freaked, I have to admit. She started screaming something like, 'It's coming! Hide! Go in your basement!' Then static. A chill ran down my spine. I have no basement. I thought.

I ran to my friends house. I knocked so fast, and hard that my knuckles bled. She didn't answer the door.

"Let me in!" I screamed.

Then I saw the door open. It was her! She waved me in while she looked both ways.

"Whats going on?" I asked as she led me to her basement. She put a finger to her mouth.

"Did you watch the news" I opened my mouth to talk but she stopped me from doing so.

"Well a lady started screaming. She said, 'It's coming! Hide! Go in your basement!' So I hid. Now you came." She whispered.

"What do you think IT is?" I asked. She shrugged.

We sat in the basement for 3 days. "When is it coming?!" I yelled. Thud! Jess cringed. By the way Jess is my friends name. I got up and went up the stairs. I saw something in the darkness. It moved. It turned its head to look at me. I ran to the door and opened it. I scurried over to the back door that leads to the basement. I tried to trick it. My eyes widened. I left the door open. I tip-toed to the door and closed it. It made a squeaking sound. I looked around for Jess. She wasn't there. Then I winced. I heard screaming, banging, crashing, then I heard something that sounded like nails on a chalkboard. I covered my ears. Then it all went silent.

I then thought, why was she upstairs...? I looked around in the basement for something to save me. I found a pickax, water, backpack, flashlights, and a few things to eat. I went upstairs and looked around. Nothing. I went on to find life. I went to the knife drawer and got a sharp knife. I went out to find someone. Something.

I opened the squeaky door and looked both ways. Before I got out something grabbed my shoulder and pulled. I tried to scream but it covered my mouth. I bit it.

"OW!" I yelped in pain. I looked back and saw Jess! She was a bloody mess though. Bloody face, legs, arms, and even her belly.

"Jess!" I hugged her.

"Ow" She whined.

I tugged at her arm. "We need to get outta here."

She just nodded. We ran out. I spotted a cave when we were in the woods. To be continued....
