"Where's Molly?" said mum. She was standing in the kitchen with her
coat on, all ready to go to work.
 "In the garden, I think," I said, through a mouthful of toast.
 "Well, keep an eye on her. Don't let her climb the tree. Dad's working
in the study, he won't notice if she falls off again."
 "OK," I said.
 "There's pasta in the fridge for lunch."
 " See you later, love." She dropped a kiss on my head and ran out the
door. A moment later I heard the car start, and she was gone.
 I finished my toast, stacked the plates in the dishwasher, then
dutifully went to seek out Molly.
 We have a long, overgrown back garden.There's a old apple tree in the
middle, which dad says he'll cut down but  never does. Right at the
bottom there's a wood shed full of junk. Tins of dried up paint, rusty
tools, that sort of thing. Molly like to play fairy tea parties in
there, with berries and leaf plates. As I expected, the door was open.
 "Molly?" I said. No reply.
 I went in. She was standing stock still in the gloom with her back to
the door, looking down at something in her hands.
 "Hey," I said. "What have you got there?"I walked up and looked over her shoulder.

Nothing could have prepared me for the shock!

There was a green eerie light rising from Molly’s hand. It looked like it was a jewel, something like an emerald but with an other-worldly glow. I asked Molly where she got it from, but she wasn’t replying. I didn’t know what was wrong with her until she told me that she had just been in another world. I didn’t believe her however, until she pressed what looked like a button sticking out of emerald-like jewel. Desperately, she grabbed my hand and suddenly we were standing there wondering, “what is this place?” I asked Molly. “No idea. I was only here for a minute before.” Maybe that was why she looked like a ghost.

We started walking, feeling as though something was creeping up behind us; we turned, but saw nothing. I told Molly to give me the jewel, but she refused , claiming ‘finders keepers’. 

Out of thin air, a town appeared. Closer and closer, we came. Were there people here? Then the screaming, shapes everywhere, running. "Those creatures are back, run for your lives’’. A gigantic blanket fell, covering us as we were lifted into the air...

Here we were, stuck in this immense tunnel trying to find a way out, Molly and I assumed it was more reasonable to go back out, so we did. As we were walking very slowly back to where we were before, we found out we were completely blocked, the tunnel didn’t have an ending, we had to choose or left or right. Looking carefully at the two ways to pass, we chose the left tunnel because it was less obscured then the right one. Holding Molly’s hand, I felt the fear inside her, we didn’t know where we were going at all, and all we knew was that it was a question of life or death. Walking slowly like snails toward the tunnel, molly started pulling my hand saying “did you hear that? The man’s voice?” I obviously had no clue about what she was saying, for a minute I thought she was just having a vision all coming from tension but she was actually right, I did hear a man’s voice this time, and she heard it for the second time. The creepy voice was whispering to us “continue the way, you will find me…” as if he was singing! Molly started crying and panicking she suddenly became insane, she was  shouting “ I want to leave,, I’m scared” she was also hitting me from disappointment of wanting to go back home. Moments later, we continued the adventure, walking faster when I suddenly felt a cold hand touching my shoulders saying “ I’m right behind you, you found me, haha”. I  screamed!

Molly ,(not me) screamed at the top of her voice as we swung round to our worst fear even in our imaginations  “THE PHANTOM FEAR “.If you’ve not heard of her  you’re mad she is a terror from another world but no time to discuss that now we had to run .I grabbed molly and swung round and bashed straight into a concrete wall I dropped down unconscious my last words “Molly run”.

Molly gets a portal key from her pocket and presses an emergency button. Everything around us slowly fades away. Suddenly! Dark, gloomy clouds take over the skies; lightning splits the sky in half. Lakes and rivers turn into quick sand. Unexpectedly the phantom fear charges into us making, me and molly collapse onto the frosty, marble floor. For one minute I thought we were going to die, my life flashed before my eyes. “Help! Help! Help!” cries the phantom fear as it slowly drowns into the quicksand. Before are very eyes our worst fears come to life. Cold, bitter wind sweeps across our bodies. Then we see our worst fears approach towards us chasing us into darkness in addition to we felt something coming up our legs, what was it? It was …

two sets of hands! I tried to get Molly's attention, but she was screaming like a total lunatic.
"Let go of me you varmint!" she screeched like a gyrfalcon. Suddenly, something started shaking us. We closed our eyes, hoping for the inevitable to be swift. Five minutes later, we opened our eyes to a sight of plaster above us and a cushiony feeling on my back. I was back in my room. I called Molly's name,but there was no reply. I scrambled out of my bed in search for Molly. But to my surprise, this was all a dillusion. It was still a dream. When I got off my bed, I couldn't walk because I was too busy falling down into an endless pit. The deeper I fell the more I smelled the unmistakable scent of smoke! I was going to die in a fire. All of sudden, I landed on something hard. My eyes shot open. I cried in agony from the fall. I think I saw my mym staring at me. She was and I was awake!
"Dad torched the breakfast," she said with a noticeable smile. "I think we should go out to eat."
"Where is Molly?" I asked with concern.
"Waiting on you."
"Don't be. Get dressed."
