"You run as if you can escape,"
"You hide as if I cannot smell you, yet you do not scream when you see me?"
I stare at the monster before as his face hides within the shadows. "do you fear me?" He questions as he stalks towards me.
I keep my mouth shut as I push my back against the tree, knowing there is no escaping the monster before me.
"Riddle me this,"
Before I can question him he disappears into the woods. "Roses may be red, but violets are not blue."
His menacing voice echoes. "You can't see me, but I can see you. I can make you scream and cry, but not one will be alive."
He appears in front of me, his face still shadowed but I can feel him smiling. "I can take you life, it's as simple as pie. I'm the monster in the night, the one who holds your life tight. I feed on you sweet blood, but my chest doesn't have a thud.."
He begins to circle the tree as he says his riddle, causing my heart to beat loudly against my chest and in my ears.
"Tell me, what monster am i?"
