The illuminating moon shattered the dark depths of the canvas night. Its shining beams distinctively collided with the rocky earth. Leading the way, the streak of iridescent glow came to a stop. A distorted tree stood towering over me. Its knuckled branches careened towards me menacingly. The crooked fingers of the tree plucked at the back of my neck. Glancing around, the sinister oak grasped me tight on the hood. Stars motionless in the black abyss like something was going to happen. Fear spread through my veins like a wild fire. My eyes bulged with terror. I tried to run…
Fingers of witches, charred from burning on hay, grabbed at the moon and vampires begged it to stay: it was their time now- the time of nightmares; horror; death.
As Tithonus awoke insects with jagged and stiff legs; bulbous pedipalps; dripping venom they crawled their way to the surface. They were no longer content with their under-ground homes deep down with the roots.
And just as everything was about to glow red and green a scent of human caught the air and the attention of the nightmarish creatures. Standing to attention, alert and almost smiling they advanced ever hungry.

As the sun set, in the west and the sand brushed against our heads…”brother I’m so hot!”

Ross Mackenzie tells us a little more about Shadow Jack in this chapter. We are told some interesting and important details about him.
What do you know about him so far? Is he a devoted slave to Mrs Hester and the Silver King or is he just a nasty villain? Why?
It was the last kick. They had to get this. How could they not? Extra time was up, Stone had got a penalty and Beage clubs goalie was injured so a winger had to step in. The reserve goalie had a hole in his shirt branded with the team logo, a bright sun-yellow flower, as he stepped onto the pitch, boos came in all directions; no sign of any support from his team.
Garry put the ball in position then ran back, ready to score for Stone. I held my breath, heart in mouth as the world seemed to still.
It was the day of the Grand dominos competition. Nerves spead through my team as we took our kit through to the main hall. Our biggest rivals, The Wolves, walked past us looking confident, sure.
The bell rang and every team started building. Suddenly, one domino rally fell over. Just then, we had a disaster; we had run out of dominos! Quick thinking Tom sprinted over to the van, brought out another box and ran. Unxpectantly, the bell ran! I let out a loud yay. Smugle, the Wolves came up to us,
“It doesn’t mater what you think, does it?”
What are your first impressions? It’s really good and dark with amazing descriptions.
What do you like about it? I like that it’s dark and I can tell it’s going to be a good storyline.
What do you think of the characters? The characters are interesting and I feel there is going to be drama.
What puzzles you? I got puzzled when it said Shadow Jack looked like he was going to kiss Lara but then, it scared me when she screamed.
What makes Lara so interesting? She was really aware of her surroundings and extremely curious.
What is it about her actions that tell us a bit about the sort of character she is? Lara seems kind and smart but curious at most things.
