"She climbed the tree to get a better view, but what she saw frightened her even more."
Sadie was in the middle of a deep sleep in her hammock when she was jolted awake by a loud noise. She opened her eyes and got off of the hammock. She let out a heavy yawn as she wiped the sleep from her eyes.
As she walked toward the noise, she heard a loud thunder coming from the skies. She looked up, placing her hand on her forehead to block out the sun. The sun suddenly vanished, allowing darkness to envelop the earth. Sadie took out her phone and turned on the flashlight app. She ran her fingers through her stringy long brown hair and started walking. The ground underneath her shook, causing her to stumble in her steps. The air became heavy as she reached the hill behind her house. She gasped for air, while holding one hand against her chest. Her other hand shakenly held her phone, lighting her path. She reached a large tree that she used to climb when she was young. She climbed a large trunk and dangled her legs on the side.
Sadie focused the light downward, and what she saw made her turn pale and caused her skin to crawl. Sadie suddenly felt cold. Dozens of dead bodies collected near an opening in the earth.
Just as Sadie gasped in horror, a snake-like creature emerged from beneath her. It opened its mouth as it headed toward her. Sadie cried in terror as she saw the large mouth and blood stained teeth race toward her.
Within seconds, Sadie was consumed. The creature disappeared into the earth. Sadie was never seen again.
