It was long past midnight when the Horror appeared at the end of Westmoreland Road. No one in the run-down housing estate saw it. No one heard it as it burst through the washing lines of the poky little gardens.
Reaching number thirty-three, Savannah Grey’s house, the Horror dropped its star-shaped head on one side, knotted its murderous claws behind its back and tried to work out the most entertaining way to reach her bedroom. There were many ways available, but the Horror was young and like all young things it liked to use its teeth.
Biting a path up the brickwork, it anchored its incisors into Savannah’s window ledge. Then, thrilled with excitement, it raised its single cobalt-blue eye to the night winds and howled.

Its howl was long and frightening and could make your blood curl. Savannah woke with fright as she heard the piercing sound screeching through the window. She screamed as she saw the cobalt blue eye staring straight at her. The Horror jumped through the window with a thunderous crash. Savannah ran down stairs and through the doorway of the kitchen only to find her mum and dad’s faces white and lifeless. The Horror had taken there souls. Then savannah heard the piercing sound again and turned around. She saw the horror and ran outside. Outside was a pure white van parked outside her house. Some one was calling her name and she ran towards the van and jumped in. The van raced away. She turned to find a man in a kaki uniform and asked” who are you?” the man replied” I’m your brother raven.” “Mum and dad didn’t want you to know me because I was so adventurous.”

Savannah asked “Where are you taking me?” Raven replied “To a secret warehouse in London.” There was no sound after that. They arrived and the van stopped with a screech. Raven said “This is my house. I couldn’t see you because mum and dad said I couldn’t so I ran away and started bigger adventures in life. I was always planning to come back and get you and now I have and what a time to come. You were horrified, weren’t you?” Savannah asked in fear “What about MUM AND DAD” “They will be ok. It is you that it wants so you must stay with me to survive” Savannah shouted “ NO NO NO WE HAVE TO GO BACK AND GET MUM AND DAD. WHAT IF IT KILLS THEM?” Suddenly there was silence and Raven said “Let’s go get them then” Savannah wanted to go as fast as they could and off they went. On the way there there was silence. Raven wanted to talk but he waited for Savannah to speak first but she was just waiting until they got there. When they were there Raven opened the boot and Savannah was in shock because of what she saw...

The horror was inside the boot. It leapt out and landed on Ravens head.
His colour was draining away leaving him stone cold and lifeless. "No"
cried Savannah. "We had only just met" The horror dissapeared back inside
the boot as quickly as it had come out. Savannah was left in the middle of
the street,cold, alone and frozen with fear. Thoughts were running through
her mind, bad thoughts,like would the horror be back for her, was the
mysterious raven really her brother and most importantly where was she.
Savannah fell asleep that night clutching a torch and lying in the middle
of the road. Little did she know that this night would change her life

Suddenly a strange man came up to Savannah and shouted “DON’T YOU KNOW ITS DANGOURUS AROUND HERE, THERE IS A CREATURE THAT KNOW ONE KNOWS ABOUT, BUT THEY ONLY KNOW THAT NAME HIS NAME IS THE HORROR. NOW GET UP AND LETS GET OUT OF HERE FAST.” Savannah followed him and asked “Did you say the horror?” The stranger did not reply. When the stranger stopped they were in his house. The stranger said to his wife “Wash this girl. I saw her sleeping on the street, give her some fresh clothes as well” His wife took Savannah up stairs and gave her a wash and got her changed, and once she came down she asked “who are you, what are you helping me for?” the strange man came up and said I am your uncle I haven’t seen you for a long time my friend I have wanted to see you for ages and now I get to see you so I heard the horror killed your brother well I know how to bring him back to life all you have to do is come with me and kill the horror....

They walked quietly towards the hill, with Savannah’s uncle holding a shotgun in his hand. Savannah was holding the torch, shining it directly in front of the shotgun. Still walking, they approached their destination, the top of the hill, where the cave rested peacefully. “Careful Savannah, the horror can smell a human a mile off, so stay close to me”, Savannah’s uncle whispered. Eventually, they were at the entrance, and gently stepped over the needles from the wood that the monster demolished. Savannah held onto her uncle tightly, walking simultaneously with him. “I am scared uncle”, Savannah explained, shivering like a sheep with no fur in winter. Whilst they were walking, Savannah could hear the sound of slime dripping off the damaged cave walls. “This cave is going on forever uncle”, Savannah told him. Her uncle told her not to worry, as they had reached the lair of the horror. Suddenly, there was a creaking sound. At that moment, a grunting noise approached them swiftly. Savannah moved the torch upwards to reveal, THE HORROR…

Fright ran through Savannah like a knife piercing through her body. She was shocked when she saw the horror’s eye staring straight into hers. She barley let out a shriek, and when she did her voice was cold as ice. It revealed its shadowy body as it leaped at Savannah and her uncle with its jaws wide open. A mighty roar and the horror sprinted away as Savannah’s uncle reloaded his shotgun. “Man, I need to work on my aim!!!” Savannah’s uncle remarked as he noticed that he missed his target. They had to follow the horror with caution as it ran deeper into the cave. “My torch is burning low- “ Savannah said as she was abruptly interrupted and her uncle boomed “Well grab a match and light it again!” Savannah said, “Uncle, you never told me, what is your name?” Her uncle turned hiding his face from her view and for a while, he was silent. “Shall we continue?” In a soft voice Savannah said, “I guess so.” The cave grew darker and darker as they moved deeper into the cave. The howling of the horror echoed off the cave walls and it then grew blankly silent …

After that, they heard a sound of a crowd. The sound got louder and louder as they walked. Then, they saw a terrifying thing: all the souls that were taken by the Horror shouting for somebody who could free them. Savannah saw her father, her mother and her brother and cried a lot. She tried to touch them, but she couldn’t because they were just spirits. Her uncle was looking at her mother and crying. “It is been a long while since the last time I saw you, sister”, he said to Savannah’s mother, “How can we bring you back to life?”. She answered scared “Only if you kill it.” and pointed to a place behind Savannah and her uncle. They looked back and saw… the Horror! It's howl echoed in the cavern and all the souls disappeared in a second. Savannah was horrified and her uncle said “We will fight for all those people. We have to be..."

As Savannah and her curious uncle walk through the winding, dark, mysterious cave, they find that they have one bullet left. Next, they find the terrifying Horror. The uncle shoots the lethal bullet, but tragically misses. After the terrible miss, the Horror jumps upon the uncle's fat body, taking his struggling soul. While the Horror takes his soul, Savannah finds the opportunity to throw the hot, flaming torch. The Horror has been lit on fire. While burning, Savannah leaves the seemingly endless cave, thinking the Horror is dead. Finally, the Horror's lifeless body lies there, and his one cobalt blue eye suddenly opens.
