I want to go home. I want Mom and Dad right now. I can't leave the car. I should, but I cant. I've been crying for a while. Don't tell anyone, Barbie, but I haven't cried like this since I was a baby. I'm scared, I'm tired, and I feel sick. It's really messy and cold in here. There's a lot of blood everywhere too. I'm still inside the same car. I was opening the car door because I was about to leave and I heard something fall outside, I think it was a trash can.
Then I heard a car alarm going off, the really annoying ones I sometimes hear in the middle of the night. It was really loud. Then I saw a monster walking right to me! It saw me! I came back inside fast and closed the door. The car alarm was still going, and then I heard a bunch more of the sounds that they make. I look outside and there are lots and lots of monsters! I can't count them all, there's too many! I wanted to get out of the car, but they were too close to me and if I tried to run, they'd bite me.
I can't believe I'm crying still! I'm sorry Barbie, I don't like crying, I feel like a little kid, and I'm not that little anymore! I still want Mom and Dad to be here with me. I don't want to be alone anymore. There was just so many of the monsters! They all saw me and got closer and closer to the car! They started hitting the windows trying to get in to get me! I never really looked at their faces much, but now I wish I didnt. Theyre scary, but they look sad too. But mostly scary.
They kept hitting the window, and then one of the windows in front broke! I didn't know what to do, I had nowhere to run away, so I just crawled under the seat the best I could. I was screaming the whole time for them to go away, but they dont listen! It looked like there was just more and more of them. I felt the car being pushed a little bit. I knew I was going to get bit. I closed my eyes and kept screaming for Daddy and Mommy.
Then I heard this loud BANG! A couple of the monsters fell down, and I didn't know what happened. Then I heard a truck drive by really slow, and then I heard more bangs and the monsters started falling down and dying. I think those bangs I heard were from a gun! Some of the monsters turned around, and then there were more bangs, and then the truck started driving again down the street. It sounded like they were laughing and cheering! The monsters started following them and left me alone. But Im still too scared to move, and that was a long time ago.
I still feel like I'm having a bad dream. But then I remember that my parents wouldn't EVER leave me at school like this. On regular days I'd be playing with friends, but right now I feel like I'm running from them. It's been hours. I really need the bathroom. I'm not hungry anymore. I don't want to leave the car again! What if there's more monsters hiding out there? I need a safer car, this one has a broken window, and I don't want a monster trying to get me.
I haven't moved in forever. I cry a little sometimes, but most of the time I've been here just quiet. I'm scared to move, and I'm scared to think about anything. But maybe I need to keep going. Maybe my mom and dad are still close by! Maybe my sisters are okay! I have to go back out there to find out. Cheesy's can't be too far from where I am, and then I can remember the rest of the way home.
Okay Barbie, here it goes.
