(this is part 2, so go back and see part 1 if you want this to make more sense. Or keep reading, it's up to you) I let out a small scream as I leaped back in terror. I couldn't take my eyes off of that.. thing. It had eyes that were reflective, like when a dog looks at a camera flash or something. All of the sudden I heard my bedroom door open. "Are you okay?? I heard screaming," my mom panted as she rushed in a panic. I turned to her and opened my mouth, but no sound came out. I turned my head back to the window, ready to point out the creature and explain what just happened. I paused where I stood. There was nothing. No eyes, to creature, nothing but a light winter flurry right outside of my window. I was still ready to say what had happened, but I stopped. She will never believe me, so what's the point? "I'm fine, I just fell off of the bed. It startled me," I lied. My mom chuckled. "You know, you really shouldn't be falling off of the bed. It's not good for you." I rolled my eyes and smiled at my mom's statement. She came over to me and wrapped her arms around me in a warm hug. "I'm sorry that this move has been a little stressful, I hope that you can enjoy life here," she said. "Mom it's fine," I replied, still looking at the window, "I love it here." "Good," she said. "Because you're stuck here for the rest of your life," she said in a joking manner. We both laughed as she shut the door to my bedroom and I was alone once again. I had felt safe for a second, but that safety had gone as soon as my mom had shut the door. I looked outside to find that there was still nothing but dark trees. I went over to my windows and made sure they were locked. I shut off my lights and I tucked myself under the covers. I'm not sure how I managed to fall into an uneasy sleep, but I wish I hadn't. As soon I slept into the world of dreams, I found myself in a familiar place. I was back in the forest that I had been in that afternoon, except it was night now. I began to panic, even though i new this was a dream. Then I heard that noise again. Not human, not an animal. A low growl that slowly turned into a violent yelling noise, which continued evolving into a screeching noise. I ran without even taking a second to think about it. I ran as fast as my legs could carry me. I slowly began to realize that I should have approached my backyard by now. I also realized that the galloping behind me was growing louder and coming closer. I couldn't outrun it anymore. My legs were cramping, my lungs were aching, and I could feel myself slowing down. I gave up, not being able to run anymore. I turned around to see the creature and- darkness. I awoke in my bed with the sun happily shining over the trees and melting the snow from the previous night. I didn't quite realize that I was sweating until I felt a small drop roll down my forehead. I immediately got out of bed. If there was anyone I could talk to, it was Alex. I went over to her room and knocked on the door. I assumed that she was sleeping, but I needed to talk to someone. I opened the door. "Ale-" I stopped. Alex's room was completely empty. She wasn't there, and neither was anything that we used to have in her room for her. Strange, I thought. Maybe she went home early? I walked into the kitchen to find my dad making breakfast, which explained the heavenly smell of pancakes and bacon that had filled the house. "Hey Dad, did Alex go back to her parent's house early? I thought that she would be staying with us for Christmas," I said as I got myself a piece of bacon. He paused. "Who's Alex, honey?" (End of Part 2)
