When I finally got out of bed and went down the stairs. It was to dark to see so I had to struggle to find the light switches,but when I did I found my parents dead on the ground with their heads dangling from the celing and their eyes rolling back.

I made a glimpse at the paper one last time, Priya Patel 58/100, with a note saying “ Get signed by parent” as I took short breaths as I felt a heavy-load of trepidation, fear. It was a Thursday afternoon 2:43 pm. At school it felt like The Jonathan Wakeman School had prisoned 23 people in a four walled room filled with…

    The Butcher The smell of rotting meat forcefully entered my nostrils. The ground was covered in coagulated blood. The room looked like an art studio that hadn’t been cleaned for years.
