A violent scream rang throughout the apartment building. Someone had been murdered. Lena peeked out behind the purple peeling door frame. Blood was painted across the room. Lena clamped a hand over her mouth to stop herself from screaming. Her ears were ringing like a violin being played badly.  Tears welled in her bright, sorrowful eyes. Her father. All she had left was gone. All the happy from the world was gone. She hunched herself into a ball and cried. Suddenly, a shadow was cast above her. Slowly, Lena turned around. A ghost-white, sinister shape as big as an elephant was towering above her. She cried out before everything turned to black.
