  • ClaireArrggghh...
  • I gnash my teeth and force back the words that want to come out.
  • Praying “it” doesn’t notice me, I grip the duvet tightly over my head.
  • ClairePlea... Please, let me go!
  • ClaireHELP!
  • ClaireAnna! Dora! Someone help me.
  • The thing drags Claire away.
  • Next, I hear the sounds of chewing.
  • The ThingMugchdc, mugchdc!
  • ClaireAAAAAAAAAARRRRRRRGH!
  • Claire lets out a blood curdling scream, then everything goes silent.
  • 15 minutes later
  • AnnaI think it’s finally gone.
  • DoraNo, no, no...
  • Tears are running down Dora’s face.
  • AnnaI can’t believe it came again. I think it’s hunting us one by one.
  • Dora is still lost in despair.
  • DoraNot again...
  • DoraFirst it was Lucy. Now Claire is gone too.
  • AnnaGet yourself together Dora, we can’t stay here.
  • DoraWhere can we go? It’s dark everywhere.
  • AnnaWe have to make a plan.
  • AnnaWe have to fight back.
  • DoraDid you see how it looked? There’s nothing we can do?
  • Dora falls and sits on the floor.
  • She lets her hands fall to her sides, dejected and defeated.
  • AnnaGet yourself together Dora.
  • AnnaWe can’t just sit and wait to be hunted.
  • Dora continues to wail loudly.
  • DoraI don’t want to end up like Lucy and Claire.
  • AnnaShhhh!
  • AnnaKeep quiet. We don’t want it hearing us.
  • I grab Dora’s arm and pull her up.
  • AnnaLet’s go.
  • AnnaHere’s what I think we should do...
  • The next night
  • DoraI can’t do this.
  • AnnaYes you can Dora, this is the only way.
  • DoraWhat if it doesn’t work?
  • DoraWhat if it gets me?
  • DoraI don’t want to die...
  • AnnaShh... keep your voice down, it’s almost midnight.
  • Dora Ha! I won’t be keeping it down when it’s tearing me apart!
  • Her plastic body heaves up and down as she shivers in fear.
  • I run my hands through her beautiful blonde hair.
  • Hair that I had washed with shampoo so many times.
  • AnnaIt’s for our own good, plea...
  • DoraNo! Think again!!
  • DoraLet’s find another plan.
  • DoraI don’t want to be torn apart...
  • Dora tries to get up from her position.
  • I whisper urgently.
  • AnnaStay down Dora, we don’t have much time left.
  • I quickly crawl to meet her, and grab her carefully...
  • AnnaNothing will tear you apart, Dora... I just need you to act as bait.
  • DoraBut... but... what if I end up like Clair and Lucy?
  • The mention of Lucy broke my heart.
  • She was my newest “friend”, my twin.
  • Her red hair stretched out just like mine.
  • To think the last thing we did was drown Mark’s special fish.
  • Mark was so upset. She didn’t even get to apologize before she was gone... God why...
  • AnnaNo no... you won’t I will protect you I promise.
  • DoraI’m scared...
  • Anna(sign) I am scared too... but we need to avenge our...
  • Footsteps...
  • DoraA... An... Anna... It is here.
  • Hugging her tightly...
  • Anna Dora... be calm...
  • AnnaRemember the plan.
  • Footsteps draw closer ...
  • AnnaI love you...
  • I kiss her forehead softly, then I crawl quickly to the dark corner...
  • AnnaOur father in heaven.... Hallowed be thy name...
  • The wind blows harshly as I hear the leaves rustle in the distance.
  • My heartbeat quickens.
  • AnnaThy kingdom come... thy will be done on earth...
  • The monster crawls in, dressed in a black overall.
  • It has a cape hiding all its facial features... I can only imagine how grotesque it looks.
  • The monster raises its head and looks towards my corner.
  • My heart skips a beat.
  • My hands grip the knife tightly, I’m ready to pounce.
  • AnnaAs it is in heaven...
  • The monster turns away from me, and faces Dora.
  • It gets ready to pounce...
  • AnnagIvEUsThISdAy!
  • DoraAnn... ANNA!!!
  • Dora screams.
  • I leap from my corner...
  • Arm arched... knife glistening in the moonlight.
  • My feet hit something. CRAP!!!
  • I stumble over my toy box, and the knife misses the monster’s back.
  • The ThingEeeek!
  • I jump on it’s back and raise my hand, ready to strike again.
  • AnnaYou’re not going to kill Dora.
  • AnnaDiiiiiieeeee!!!!
  • The monster’s cape falls off its head, revealing beautiful red hair... similar to mine.
  • The ThingMUMMYYYYYY!
  • My hands stop in midair...
  • AnnaMark??
  • Our mum runs into my bedroom and turns on the light.
  • MumAnna... what are you doing to your brother?
  • Mark scrambles to his feet.
  • The ThingMu... Mummy... She wants to kill me because of Dora.
  • MumDrop the knife Anna! Dora is just a doll.
  • MumThey’re all just dolls.
