Chesterville "With this bad weather, we can't continue to drive. We have to find a place to sleep." Jeff said nervously.

"We'll just stop at a hotel or something, don't worry about it sweetie," Jeff's girlfriend Katie said calming him down.

As Jeff and Katie drove through lighting and thunder, they spotted a sign to a nearby hotel.

"It's over there, you passed it. Didn't you see the sign?" she asked impatiently. Jeff turned the car around and finally found the hotel. They suspiciously walked to the dark and deserted entrance.

"This is strange," Katie declared with a frightened voice.

"You see that old house down there?" Jeff pointed "We'll just go down there, and ask if there is another hotel nearby.

Jeff and Katie scurried down to the old house but nobody was in sight. They heard banging windows, and saw spider webs everywhere. The broken fence surrounding the backyard of the house looked as if a tornado had passed by.

The grass was damp and muddy, and you could see nobody had mown it for a long period of time.

" Welcome to Chesterville," Katie read the sign out loud, while standing in front of the house.

Jeff tried to ring the doorbell, but it did not work, so he knocked on the door, and it suddenly burst open.

"Is there anybody here?" he asked in a petrified voice.

There was no response.

"Anyone here?" he repeated louder, but no one answered.

"Jeff we should go! There's no one in here. Anyway, this house is really strange. Let's go!" Katie urged her boyfriend.

"Katie, listen," Jeff demanded. "There's a downpour out there. The fog is starting to build up, we can't drive like this. This is the only choice we have. Are you with me?" he asked in a confident voice.

As they walked inside, they felt as if the floor sag was going to collapse. Everything was old and wasted. As they climbed up the stairs to the second floor, it made such a creaking sound that it was distracting. An enormous chandelier covered half of the ceiling. There were many doors, which made it confusing to find their way through.

BAAM! "What was that?" Katie asked with a frightened voice.

"It was probably just the door, don't worry about it," Jeff responded with a nervous smile.

The two of them were trying to find their way through the house, and suddenly Katie heard a creaking and loud noise, as if someone was walking up the wooden stairs. "It's probably my imagination," she thought to herself.

As they progressed up the stairs, to the third floor, Katie heard the creaking noise once again.

"Did you hear that?" she questioned him in an alarm tone of voice.

"No," Jeff responded calmly. "You're too tense Kate, it's your imagination." "He's right," she thought to herself. "he's always right." They finally found a couch, and a bed, where they could spent the night.

"Jeff, I don't think we should stay here. I mean, this house is strange. I don't feel safe staying here." Katie pleaded "Let's try to find a hotel. If we can't drive anymore, we can spent the night in the car." Jeff sighed and suddenly his tone of voice changed.

"Ya know what Katie?" He said angrily. "I drove all the way down here just for you. Do you think I wanted to see that stupid dance contest? Maybe if you would just get over…" "Jeff, there's…there's something behind you." Katie screamed.

Abruptly, Jeff was thrown to the wall by a monstrous creature. Katie had never seen anything as large and petrifying as what was standing in front of her. The creature had dark nostrils, and large and glowing green eyes. Its body was large and hairy, like a gorilla's, and it's skin was orange and dark brown mixed together. Its claws and teeth were sharp and long.

Katie found herself running as quick as she could, and her heart rapidly thumping.

Triingg, Triingg! "Katie! Wake up. You're late for school honey. It's already 6:30 in the morning!"
