"The Beast"



It was quite chilly outside. Winter just started but I feel like it’s been a year. The winds can freeze anyone instantly! Well maybe I am telling too much cause I just can’t stand cold! Anyway my name’s Celia and I am kind of disturbed at everything due to this winter right now.  I and my crew are on an expedition right at this moment on a mountain. Actually I work as an investigator. We’ve been getting information that people who came to his mountain got disappeared mysteriously. In most cases no one really came back. But one lucky fellow named Simon managed to return somehow and is still in grave shock and can’t say a word.  Dr. said he lost his voice out of shock. And unfortunately we are given the responsibility to find out the reason behind it.  Okay, we are three members. Joey and our guide Tiko were with me. As so you know he almost looks like Chinese to me for is little eyes. Anyways, we reached here almost near the top. Due to a terrible snow storm we had to stay there for the night. We set the tent as soon as possible and took shelter. It was quite a big storm which last half an hour. Luckily we survived the storm and had dinner and went to sleep to regain some energy. But in the middle of the night I woke up hearing some noise. It was a groaning sound of some animal. I saw a huge shadow moving round my tent very slowly. It was too big for any wolf that I can tell from its shadow. I called Joey and Tiko instantly. They became more socked than me. Joey was a hunter so he got ready with his hunting gun.  I slowly opened the door of the tent a little to see what it actually was. It was a huge beast moved on four feet with large claws and had a huge head. I’ve never seen such a weird animal before. For at that moment I could realize that this might be our last night because that thing looked hungry which was not good at all!

It started coming towards us. Joey was ready to fire and told us to run when we get chance because I think he knew that guns won’t be enough to kill that beast. Tiko gave a terrifying look and nodded. On coming close the beast was taking his position to attack then Joey fired all the bullets at it. But as expected nothing happened and it seemed even angrier than before. Tiko and I made a run for it hoping that Joey is right behind us. Saw a small cave and took shelter in it but alas it was just me. I hear Tiko screaming from far away. The beast got Joey and Tiko! It also came for me but couldn’t come inside the small cave so I was saved for the time being. I brought my walkie-talkie with me and asked for help immediately.  But due to that storm they couldn’t come then. I passed the most horrible time of my life crying and praying in that cave. Help came next morning and found no traces of that beast. We came back and soon learned that the area was closed for people forever. Later it was found that some scientists were illegally experimenting on various creatures and accidentally they created that horrible beast. I will never be able to get out of this shock. I lost my companions forever. The horrible face of that beast still haunts me all the time….
