I was at Walmart buying some groceries and snacks. I went to the checkout to purchase my items and then left Walmart. The darkness was a veil that enveloped the night sky. The parking lot was deserted, and no one was outside except me. I started to get a little scared, I hate the dark especially when I’m by myself.
Suddenly, I felt like someone was watching me. I turned around and saw nothing.
“Whew” I sighed in relief. I got scared over nothing.
Then I saw a figure in front of me, it looked like my dad. I wonder what my dad was doing at Walmart this late.
“Hey, dad! I didn’t expect to see you here!” I shouted out to him.
Instantly, he pulls out a knife and starts chasing me.
“AHHHHHHHHH!” I shrieked.
I started running as fast as I could with the Oreos still in my hand and I’m starting to lose my breath. I look to see if anyone was around to help me, but there was no one, it was just a vacant parking lot. I look back and see that Walmart was dark and there were no lights or employees. The weird thing was, that I did not see anyone leave the Walmart. No one. But the most bizarre thing I saw was a tiny car. Yes, one of those small ridable cars for little children, and my dad was inside one of them driving towards me. My dad was chasing me with a knife in a small electric car for kids. He was going so slow I just stopped running and stared at him in disbelief. This is what I was running away from?
Before I knew it, I somehow teleported away from the situation and ended up in my dad's van. We parked somewhere that had a lot of stores, the warm orange lights and lights from inside the store made the night sky look less eerie. Then, a bunch of strangers approached the car and my dad rolled down the window and started talking to one of them. This was all very strange and abnormal. First, I was at a Walmart parking lot being chased and now I’m here in the chaser’s car. I tried eavesdropping on their conversation, but I couldn’t comprehend what they were talking about. In a flash, I felt a hot painful burning sensation in my stomach. I looked down and I saw that my stomach had been pierced through with a bullet. Blood was gushing out so quickly. After a while, I couldn’t feel anything, everything was just a blur. I couldn’t move. I couldn’t speak. The pain was numbing me away. I just slowly closed my eyes and escaped it all.
