5 - It
When I was home at night, I heard a noise at the window. Turning around I saw nothing, but I thought that I saw a shadow lurking nearby. I brushed it off like nothing and continued watching TV. I still tried to define that shadow in my head: long, dark, bone like hands, and creepy face that could make anyone freeze in their tracks. I went to bed that night in my room and thought that I could feel the presence of the bone like creature. I woke up to a candle burning and a note that read; “Hello little one”. I was in a state of shock and rushed to my parents room, passing the baby pictures of me. I showed them the note and told them everything else. My mom laughed it off and told me to grow up, and that it was my sister playing a prank on me. I thought yeah that could be true but could her prediction be wrong? I walked passed my baby pictures and froze in my steps. I saw a drop of blood running onto my picture. It came from a crack in the wall that lead upstairs. Walking up the stairs was horrified. I saw that bone like creatures shadow out of the corner of my eye. Was it following me? My sister had her door closed, and had bright burning candles. I opened the door and, saw the bone like creature sucking the soul out of my sister. I screamed and yelled for my parents-no response. I screamed and yelled at the creature and it looked me in the eyes. My brain become numb, and I walked over to it. You never saw anything, the sound echoed in my head. I had weird feelings that night, and had to go to the bathroom and saw on the mirror, “Please help me, little sis”! I wondered if that was my sister calling for help, as I walked out the creature said, “Trust nothing, nothing is real”. My head was spinning and couldn’t stop. I believed that my sister was on the other side of the mirror. As I put my hand up to the mirror, the creature popped up and yelled laughing. “My name is IT, and you’re coming with me.” I screamed and yelled… and that was IT.
