I had never felt so scared in my life. There I was again, laying on my bed and staring at the dark shadow creature that was again standing in my doorway…watching. The figure was so pure black that you could spot it right away, even in the dark. It's curious, deep green eyes stare back into my terrified blue ones. It could have been human except that it was black. The staring and the longs nights have been going on a while.

Every night it just sits there, waiting. But I have no idea what's it's what for. I haven't slept in the past month.

I watch it carefully, though I'm scared to death. I noticed that is gets a little closer every night, like it moves inch by inch. It started in the hallway and it slowly made its way to my door frame. I don't even want to think about what will happen when it gets next to my bed. I shivered.

But as the nights dragged on, it finally did. The creature stood next to my bed and watched me as I trembled with fright. It slowly came towards me, so close all I could see was black. It's hard to describe what happened after that, all I can say is that I felt like some one was pulling me apart piece by piece. Ripping my skin off and taking out all of my insides. I knew I was still alive in some form, because I could still feel my body.

I don't know how or when, but the next thing I knew, I was standing in the door of the room of a ten…maybe eleven year old girl. Her eyes were wide and panicked. I knew I had a purpose here and I could suddenly feel the hunger gnawing at me. I wanted that little girl. I tried to take a step towards her but I couldn't move.

I looked down at my hands and feet and realized they were pitch black. I had become a shadow creature.
