It was a dark night, nothing but the sound of crickets lurking in the hedges. But I had a feeling it wasn’t just crickets out there. Every now and then a shadow would catch the shine of the light.
Someone was walking outside.
Then I heard the creak of doors opening and I saw everyone’s parents walk onto the street. Suddenly, they all lined up in perfect order. Then something rose up from the road. It was like a shadow in an immaculate suit and perfectly polished shoes. As I looked away I saw the shadow move closer. I looked away and the deafening screams echoed through the cold night.
