The night I got out

By Kai Townsend, year 8, Grammar School

I woke up in a pitch black room, in a pitch black house, in the pitch black night and heard the sound of rats scuttling around me. That was strange, I thought. I’d never heard rats in the house before. Trundling down the stairs I looked out the window to see a dim light shining in the distance. Then I heard the guards… ...the guards that kept us here, the guards I hated!
I muttered under my breath and turned to leave when I saw them, two amber eyes piercing through the darkness, then... just as quickly as they came... they were gone.
“Squeak, Squeak, SQUEAK,” it was coming from the kitchen. I entered and there they were, this time 4 amber eyes stared at me in the darkness. They then started moving… moving slowly… very slowly… then… then they were gone.
