I was awakened by a thumping sound. The room was pitch black and my eyes slowly started to adjust to the dark when my door started to slowly open by itself.
"Tom? Is that you?" There was no answer.
Suddenly the ticking of a clock was heard. My mind raced. I didn't remember there being a clock in my room or anywhere down the hall way.
"Aunt Clare? Uncle Nick?" The door was now opened wide. I could see a small figure standing in the doorway.
"Who's there? I'll scream if you come any closer." No answer.
The figure raised its arm up, holding a chain attached to a circular object. The ticking became louder. It must be holding a clock , she thought.
I slowly climbed out of bed and turned on a lamp. Standing in the door way was a grey stuffed bunny. One of its ears was torn half way off and hanging. It had black button eyes that stared at me. Blood was seeping out off the tear where a heart should be. It held the clock on a gold chain in its hand. The pocket watch's hands moved counterclockwise.
"Wha-what do you want?" I asked shakily.
It slowly turned its head and looked at the clock then back at me. We stared at each other. The stuffed bunny ran down the hall. I waited a couple minutes before walking out the door way. A path of bloody puddles lead down the hall. I looked over at Tom's door wondering if I should wake him. I was scarred. I shook mt head. That bunny came to me. I have to follow it.
I hurried down the hall and turned left, following the pools of blood. I ran down halls hoping to find the bunny but the trail never stopped. I stopped and took a deep breath. This was crazy. That bunny was probably not even real. This must be all a dream. I turned around to head back to my room but i bumped into a wall. The hall was gone! I ran down another hallway, away from the bloody path, but ended up being stopped by another wall. This can't be happening. There's no way back to my room!
I started to panic and my heart started to race. The only way out of here was to follow the bunny's trail.
"What's wrong?" a voice whispered in my head. "Follow it."
Ticking echoed down the hallway as a clock appeared on the ceiling above me. Again, the hands moved counterclockwise. Every time the clock ticked a number fell out of the clock and onto the floor in front of me.
"Don't let time run out. Your already in the rabbits game. You don't want to die here do you?" the voice asked.
I tightened my hands into fists. "Not without trying." I answered.
I ran down the hall and followed the path. Clocks appeared on the hallway walls and numbers fell with every step I took.
"Times almost out. You better hurry or it's game over." the voice said.
I ran as fast as i could. Faces appeared onto clocks as they laughed at me. The ticking grew louder.
"Four...three..." the voice started.
"Where am I suppose to go!!" I screamed.
The path was gone. I ran frantically down the hall.
As I ran the wooden double doors appeared.
I leaped for the door and grabbed the handle. I opened it and hurried inside.
The ticking disappeared. I sat up and looked out the open door. My eyes widened as they saw nothingness. The hall was gone. Only darkness took its place.
"Congradulations. You past the first test."
