|A package at my front doorstep turned out to be the worst thing i'd ever recieved|
This is my first story..... please give some input I was walking out to get my mail and saw this box. It was a refigerator crate. My name was on it, along with my address, but no return address or any marking what so ever of where it came from. I dragged it inside and then, realizing i'd need a crowbar, went next door to borrow one from Mark. He had a co-worker and after telling him what i needed and why they both decided to come over. He grabbed his crowbar and we went back. After spending a couple minutes prying the old rusted nails out of the box we pulled off the lid to discover it was full of shredded newspaper. "There's got to be something in here" mark said as he started scrounging around the box. He finally pulled out a human skull. "Oh getting ready for halloween already?" he asked as he shoved his hand back in and shuffeled the papers around some more. All of a sudden he screamed and pulled his arm out to reveal that his arm had been ripped off at the elbow and now all that was there was a bloody stump. "ha ha ha good one" jim sarcastically said. i just stared at mark with an utter look of horror on my face, i knew he wasn't that good of an actor. Mark collapsed into the box face first and jim said "ok stop it's not very funny" he turned mark over, but mark no longer had a face. Jim screamed as a scaley, red-eyed beast jumped out of the box. The beast was about 6 1/2 feet tall had a long tail and sharp claws (on both hand and foot) and sharp fangs. Blood dripped from his mouth as he eyed the 2 of us. Suddenly he jumped onto jim and started ripping his chest open. As i heard the sounds of ribs being visciously snapped in the beasts jaws and jim screaming i ran as fast as i could out of the house. I got into my car and drove a few blocks away so i could clear my mind and think of what to do. I needed to figure out who sent me this deadly package and how to get rid of it. I grabbed my cell phone out of the glove box and dialed 4-1-1 and asked them for any stores or places to get information about deamons. The lady sounded a bit pissed but found one and connected me to them. After giving an explanation to the person i was connected to they told me what incantation i had to say and what i would need to do and find to destroy it. I thanked him profusley and hung up. I drove back hoping the beast hadn't gotten away because i would need to get awfully close for this to work. I jogged the premiter of my house and seeing no broken glass or holes in the wall i figured it was still there. I quitely entered the house and began to frantically search the box. Finally i found what i was looking for, an amulet. I grabbed the amulet and just as i was about to begin the incantation i heard a deep heavy brething behind me, smelled the foul smell of human flesh and blood and felt the warm air and saliva of the creature on the back of my neck. I began to mumble the incantation hoping i would be able to finish. I turned around to face the creature and saw the jaws dripping with blood, the blood from both mark and jim, and saliva. The creature did not appear as if it would bite me and just as i was about to finish the spell to send this deamon creature back to the hellish place it came from i felt a slash across my stomach and looked down to see my pale intestines fall out all over the floor. I looked back up to the creature as it's jaws opened wide and it's head swooped down. I felt my skull being crushed as the preasure increased on my brain. Then................ nothing. Tweet
