The darkness beneath the city!


It was an ordinary morning, I was going to school. As I was walking I sensed something following me. I also noticed that it was walking exactly the same as me. I turned my head around but I didn't see nothing, so I kept walking. The same thing happened the next day and the next day and the next day… One day I decided to turn my head in a way that it couldn't notice. I was frightened to show a dark figure like an oldman. He had pitch black and his skin was white. Apparently he noticed me and then he turned right to a side streetnever saw him again.One night when I was going home after my piano lessons, I noticed something very strange. There was a huge hole in the center of the road. That hole wasn't there in the morning so it must have happened after my during my lessons. I decided to go check it. I also noticed that no one was on the street which was something very weird as well. I slowly walked to the hole to check what was going on when I froze. I turned around my head only to see the creepy oldman staring at me. I asked him who is he? Did I knew him? I was very confused and frightened at the same time. Without saying a single word, he pointed his finger at the hole. I decided to look in the hole. And then I saw it… There was a huge city inside it. It was very old and very dark. The oldman said that this city used to be his home, until we destroyed it. I didn't know what to say and I was very confused. I took a closer look in the hole as I couldn't see the city very clearly. The next thing I saw, was me falling in the hole and the oldman staring at me with the scariest smile I ever saw before…"why are you still sleeping Zac"? It was my mom. It took me some minutes to realize that this was a dream. From then on, everytime I go to school, I always feel like someone is following me. And when that happens I always here the oldman's last words:

"You will pay for what you've done…"

Happy Halloween!!!
