The Thing in the Forest

I was in a forest, it was dark and cold. I was on my regular night time walk. It helped me clam my mind. The only light was from my flash light, the only sound was coming from my foot steps. That was until I heard a sound like no other sound I heard before, it was this screech mixed with hissing. I turned around and ran as fast as I could. The only thing I could see was darkness. That was until I saw it, a beast like no other I saw before. It looked like a human dog mix in some kind of fucked up way. It had blood on it's face. I think it just killed some thing. The thing I remember most is it's skin it had dark grey skin and red eyes. I kept running my lungs burred my heart ached.

The thing was a ten feet behind me running on all fours it. It was not very big I could probably kick it and hurt it maybe even kill it, but I took flight over fight

. I could see light coming from my house this made me run even faster. The beast was hissing at me, I think it did not like the light or it was just mad. Now it was only a few feet away from me and my house was nine or ten feet away. I took fight this time I ran up ant kicked it right in the side... right it it stupid fucking side. It yelped like a dog, I knew I hurt it. That is when I made my break for my house. I got in and locked the door. Right after that I ran to the kitchen and grab my sharpest knife, It glimmered off the light from the moon. I knew what I had to do. So I grab my flash light in my left hand and my knife in the other. There were scratches at my door I knew it was there.

I kicked open the door and stabbed down on the back of its neck. There was a lot of blood but I kept going slashing more and more. Once I was sure it was dead I went to go grab a garbage bag and some gloves. I put it in the bag and took it by the shed, then I grab a shovel. I walked to the woods, I began to dig after four feet or so I put it in it's grave. After I buried it I walked back home. When I got home took my clothes off and threw them away, I went to go have a shower. The time I got out the sun was coming up. A smile came across my face. I made it. It was only three hours before I need to go to work so I set my alarm to 8:30 and went to sleep. When I got up I got ready for work. I went to take out the garbage but it was empty. I started to run towards the grave. Expecting to see fresh over turned dirt, instead I saw normal looking dirt. I started to think the whole thing did not happen until I saw a bloody knife of the ground by my house. .

Deleted User: This is a very clever story in the style of 19th century (and turn of the century) Gothic writing, very reminiscent of Stevenson's The Body Snatchers or even of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde (less so of Frankenstein itself, since the author is more minimalist than Shelley's florid, Romantic rhetoric). ...

tyleroakleyfan: thank you for writing this story I loved it. it was great I enjoyed every minute of it I couldn't stop reading you did a fantastic job. Thanks for killing ron he was starting to piss me off. he was being a dick. I love that you made it a gay love story its about time someone did. love it great job.

mrh: I have loved reading this story. It is amazing. I love how the one single event of meeting Draco has changed the story. This is such a great twist on harry's story. I would love to read more... will you be writing a Year 2?

Warchief: The biggest problem with the Harry Potter series is that it's all from his point of view. So we never really get to see or understand events from other peoples perspective. I think that they would be more than a few people that want to know what happened at Hogwarts during that last year.As far a...

skippybash12: This story has engaging characters that you care about and a plot that is unpredictable and exciting. It is well written with a believable voice. Great weekend escape and if there was a sequel available I would buy it today -

teaandscones: Thank you for portraying the realities our soldiers face in such an accurate way but without over dramatizing or being overly preachy. As your Watson often said, most soldiers view their actions as nothing more than their duty.My brother serves, as have many members of my family, so I highly appr...

Jean Tryon: As a beta, I found this story outstanding!! Plot, grammar, phraseology, etc Rachel gives us it all. She takes the story into the future from where due South ends. She is an exacting and thoughtful author.

Tiffany Thomson: This story is not something I would normally pick up and read but I'm so glad I did, I wasn't able to put it down and my husband was yelling at me at 3am to put it down and go to bed (just waited for him to doze back off before picking it back up) I really hope Natalie brings out another book eit...

tyleroakleyfan: this was the perfect ending I loved it. thank you so much I enjoy the relationship that Draco and harry have and their children. im glad Vernon learned his lesson. and Dudley as a wizard did not see that coming but it gives him a way to be closer to harry. very good job with this. if you could ch...
