Lulissa had been running all day, sweat was dripping downwards from her normally clean and dry face. She had hid in a dank and dark alleyway for at least ten minutes now. She crouched low behind a nearby dumpster while holding her nose as she saw beams of light beaming out from the entrance to the alleyway. “Oh, why won’t the knuckleheads just leave me alone?” For the past several weeks Lulissa had been on the run. Ever her little ‘incident’ at her college football field she had been away from her family and was on the lam running away from the law. She was happy that she found a way to revert back to her normal self on her own, but she felt that she was branded for life as a criminal, or worse a monster. She watched and waited for the flashlights …show more content…
She peaked her head out to see if there was anyone nearby starring into the alleyway, fortunately the path was all clear of onlookers and she felt it was safe to move out behind the rancid dumpster. She quietly crept out of the murky alleyway while covered in the ugly and smelly trench coat and fedora she had the displeasure of acquiring. “At least I’ll look so bad nobody will want to deal with me.” She thought to herself as she casually walked out of the alleyway and onto the …show more content…
He seemed to have horrible aim as most of his shots were aimed below her head. The bullets whizzed at her and impacted her belly, her lower torso, and her sides. All had the same effect as previously however. “Y-you ain’t human!” “Shut up! I’m no more of a monster than you are!” She said. The man dropped the gun and pulled out a knife in fear in order to engage her in melee combat and then make his example, however Lulissa merely grinned. She closed her eyes and before the man could blink she had grown larger than him! She was no less than seven feet tall! “You freak!” The main said while swiping at her in a panicked and uncoordinated way. Lulissa simply grabbed him by the arm and lifted him up. He started to groan in pain as his body was hoisted up by his arm. Soon he saw her as she became larger and grew another foot. “L-let me go! Let me go!” “Oh I’ll let you go.” Lulissa said as she grinned. She then grabbed him by the shirt and before he could free himself she turned around and tossed him at several trashcans at the end of the alleyway. He was flung almost effortlessly at the cans before impacting them and causing a loud clang as both cans lids tossed over and spewed garbage all over him. “Hmph..horrible little man, now it’s your turn to smell like junk.” She
and heaves the huge blade at her head. She sees his surprise as his sword
First, her grandmother’s hand reached out towards her weak body. Then her grandfather waltzed to her side. Even Aunt Betty and Cousin Jax appeared to her. “Come with us, Hulga,” her family proposed warmly. “You can have a brand new leg. Just come with us. You’ll like it here.”
The creature lunges for the woman and grabs a hold of her arm, yanking her to the floor. The woman kicks and struggles, but is able to stab the creature in the thigh making it scream and loosen its grip on her. The woman frees herself from the creatures and rolls away from
Her legs were beginning to give way but she could feel herself starting to pick up speed before a branch stopped her in her tracks and she tripped, absorbing the impact on her elbows and knees causing skin to pull back from those areas. Desperately she tried to push herself off the ground though it was too late, she could already hear the tyres and the commotion becoming louder and clearer until finally she knew it was behind her. At first, the beaming sun was blurring her vision and all she was able to make out was a tall figure. As it edged closer towards her with the ferocity of a beast, she was able to see the male features, the dark uniform, the muscular frame and the devilish face devouring her with its eyes as if she were his prey. Within seconds it became clear to her that she was going to be
Clint had gone to school the same way every time so he thought he would go a different way. He followed a main road and then took a new side passage that he had wondered about before. Through this side passage he came across an abandoned street, he started to walk down when he noticed that his shadow wasn't making the same movements he was. Clint rubbed his eyes and then his shadow was mimicking him again. He then decided that he would go the normal way to school like usual. Once he arrived at school he talked to his friend Zac about the abandoned street and if he had ever been there. Zac replied with " No I would never go down such a dangerous looking street, you're basically asking to get mugged" "Do you want to go down that street on the
The priest took courage and threw himself over her with a carpet. Run, run as the creature said he removed the carpet.
We were now at the bus stop. The sun had replenished and the sky full of glee. There was trail next to the bus stop, she started walking through it. The trees intertwined like arches and the shadows created an ominous feeling. As she walked through the forest, her whole body had a calm aura.
The Creature That Opened My Eyes Sympathy, anger, hate, and empathy, these are just a few of the emotions that came over me while getting to know and trying to understand the creature created by victor frankenstein in Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein. For the first time I became completely enthralled in a novel and learned to appreciate literature not only for the great stories they tell but also for the affect it could have on someones life as cliché as that might sound, if that weren’t enough it also gave me a greater appreciation and understanding of the idiom “never judge a book by its cover.” As a pimply faced, insecure, loner, and at most times self absorbed sophomore in high school I was never one to put anytime or focus when it came time
