"What's that?" My voice barely a whisper.
"I don't know either..."
I snap my head towards Agent Lewis, couldn't believe what he just said. He just told me that he came here to investisgate, so why he doesn't know what's happening. Shaking my head,I slowly turn up ahead. Disappointed on how irresponsible he really is— "Oh my God...''
With widening eyes, every emotions welling inside me were long forgotten when I let out a horrified gasp. My stomach knotted with cold dread, as sweat starts to broke all over my skin. My pulse raced, while my heart beat so hard I thought it will break free from my rib cage.
The whole house was blanketed with thick gray fog. Its not even near from the mist before. This one is much denser, much thicker and to my horror it felt cold too. Freezing coolness that slither through my skin almost embedding its coldness deep in my bones.
With trembling knees I force my foot to take a step. And called out to the darkness, "Hey!" My voice quavering. "Mom! Dad! Agent Lewis! Everyone?! Where are you, guys?!"
I hear a faint voice calling back. It gives me hope, but it was shattered when a loud screech, high and desperate floated from somewhere. But with the thick fog clouding my sense of sight, I couldn't tell where its coming from. But I can't just stood there and do nothing. So with renewed vigor I stomp the fear tightly within me, and outstretched my hand. Feeling around me, I slowly walk straightforwardly.
But as minutes passes by, and the wail become more painful, panic slowly seized me. Walking aimlessly while, hearing the painful cries not far from me, makes me so anxious I don't know what to do. I don't know where everyone is. And I don't have any idea on how to locate and help everyone. I felt trap, hopeless and powerless.
On the midst of it all, a sudden loud familiar scream, jolted my senses to wake. My mother's face filled with grieve and helplessness came clearly in my mind. It broke my indecisiveness. Shoving the fear tightly within me, I square my shoulder and braced my self, sprinting blindly through the gray fog.
I groan painfully, as my body hit something hard. I felt my self flew through the air as I bounced from the thing I hit. Pain flooded my back when it touched the wall, but I urge myself to stand, as I breathed deeply.
I'm aching all over, while my head felt heavy. Shaking the haziness, I blink and look around with a gasp. The room was starting to clear up. I don't know what happened, but it seems the thick fog was slowly dissipating. Looking around me, I breathed a deep sigh of relieved when I saw my parents standing at the other end of the room. I'm thankful that they seem fine, and unscathed, but when I saw their expressions I frown. They both have fear stricken faces, while looking at the other corner of the room. Curiously, I followed their line of sight.
Fear, panic, and hopelessness slam through me with so much force, I momentarily stop breathing. I can feel my self turning pale, while my body become cold.
Agent Lewis lay shaking on the floor, while a monstrous creature loom over him. One of its sharp clawed hand were embedded deeply in his stomach, while blood starts to flow from his raging open wound, puddling beneath him. Any playfulness of the man he knew was completely reduced to a scampering mess as he wail , whine and beg for them to help him.
But I knew that there was no hope for any of us. And almost as if the beast can hear my mind, it lifted its hairy and scary face and looked directly in my eyes. Our gazes lock and to my horror the monster gave me a sadistic smile. Its lips were pulled widely, showing its sharp fangs on full display. And then it let out a loud crazy cackle as it saunter over me with its unnerving lazy steps, which paralyzed me completely from so much fear...
'Yup, they're all bound to die tonight..' I cry under my breath, as death gathered before me while I drown from so much misery and despair....
I tried to gulp a mouthful of air to clear my raging nerves, but my throat felt tight that simple breathing even become hard. Backing away my back touched the wall, eliciting a loud cackle from the monster as it came nearer. I can hear my mother calling to me. Yelling my name.
As terror gripped every muscles within my body, the voice calling me become more frantic, and loud..
How can that be —
I all around stopped breathing, as the beast massive hairy body tower above me. I can feel its large malicious eyes looking deeply within my soul.
"Hey, Mischa! Can you hear me? Hey!"
As the voice of my mother become more louder, the fear I'm feeling grew more, I am sure my heart finally stop beating as the monster lower its head, widen its mouth and—
"Mischa, wake up! You're going yo be late!"
"Huh?" I groggily said, twisting on my side and saw my mother's angry face looming over me.
"Don't huh me young man! I've been waking you for half an hour already! Look, its already 8, you're going to be late in your first day at school!"
I watched my mother with pure relief. Quickly the fear washes away, as I look up with her. I can feel my eyes tearing, and without hesitating I sprung on my bed and pounced to her. I wound my arms around her waist crying, with fear and joy. Thankful that everything had just been a dream..
"Misha, baby, what's wrong?"
"Nothing mom..I'm just happy.." I murmur while sniffing. "I love you mama.."
