Natalie Crooks was taken by a big black shape, into another world - the forgotten world...
Walking along the dirt track with my best friend, Amy, I heard a twig snap behind me. I spun round expecting to see a couple of the boys in my class stood there, laughing; but there was no one.
"Haha, Nat, you're so paranoid. I know this is the longer way round to my house and you were told not to, but it's broad daylight in Summer - who would be following us now?" Amy said to me, and I realised she was right. It was a beautiful day in the middle of the Summer holidays, and you don't get many kidnaps when it's like this. I relaxed and laughed along, pushing Amy into a bush. She nearly fell over which made me almost wet myself!
Suddenly I stopped as I felt a change in the atmosphere - everything seemed colder, almost in suspense. As Amy got up, a shadow fell over me. Amy screamed at this huge black shape that swooped me up and shoved me inside it. It hadn't eaten me, but I was inside it. I could hear Amy shouting for me and begging that it didn't take her.
"Amy! It's okay! I'm only inside it - it hasn't eaten me!" I yelled as loud as I could. But it only alarmed her more as the screaming got even more high pitched.
Immediatly, it was gone. No screaming, no shouting, no yelling. To be honest, it made me even more frightened, not knowing where I was. After what seemed like a lifetime, I was getting sucked - or blown - out of where I was.
The bright light made me wince as I was thrown onto the ground. Or, at least, it felt like a ground.
