Victoria hid in the closet, scared to death. She tried to control her breathing, but that was hard when you heard footsteps getting closer and closer. She felt tears spill over in fear. It only got worse as the footsteps stopped right in front of her. She knew that this was it. She would be caught.
The footsteps reversed as it walked away. Next thing she knew she heard the door slam. She struggled through an hour of silence and then walked out. She walked over to her bed and fell onto it, unconscious.
Where is she? The creature thought, angrily. I've never lost before. He looked up at the sky. The light started to return. I guess I'll just have to wait. he thought and disappeared.
Time went by. The Shade was gone, at least as far as they knew. Victoria went back to normal, or at least as far as that goes. Everything went great, well, at least for a while.
