Once or maybe twice a year something comes out to seek children and capture them.
On a day like any day, Athena Deans a little girl about 9 years old was out on a stroll with her 15 year old cousin, Carter Deans. "Carter look! there was something in the bush!" she yelled. 'It's only seven p.m, and it's not even dark yet, nobody is in the bushes now.' he rolled his eyes. "but Carter!" '' I know there is nothing there. Would you like me to look?'' Athena looked back at the bushes, she knew something was there and was watching them. She nodded. "yes, i want you to go look." she said. Carter marched over to the bushes. "there's only a stack of candy followed by a cookie trail further inside the bushes." he yelled back. Athena closed her eyes, took a deep breath, and marched over to were Carter was standing. He was gone. "Carter! Carter! Come out! You're scaring me!" she yelled. Athena heard evil laughter. The bushes rattled. She looked inside the bushes and saw the cookie trail her cousin was talking about. Just like any other young 9 year old she followed it thinking it would take her to her dear cousin. Athena walked and followed the the trail for what seemed like hours, the sky was a dark shade of purple and the sun was setting. Athena hit the start of what looked like a very deep forest, the cookie trail was still going so she kept going. She gave her eyes a quick rub, she was getting quite tired. Athena stopped for only a moment when she felt a sharp pain. she collapsed on the ground, blood dripping from her back. Athena barely turned around to see there was a laughing clown behind her.
