SUMMARY: A boy in a haunting alternate reality is saved by his "protector" from enemies seeking to possess him. (Note: This story is written from the point of view of a small boy, so I am aware of the bad grammar/spelling)

"E"
I CREEP OUT OF BED AND STEP TOWARDS THE WINDOW. I LOOK OUT ONTO OUR FRONT YARD WITH FEARFUL EYES; I SEE THAT A SHEET OF MIST IS GATHERING. THERE ARE FIGURES COMING TOWARDS OUR HOUSE THROUGH IT. I CAN SEE THEM, THEIR OUTLINE BLURRED WITH THE HAZE.
I RUN, FRIGHTENED AND WITH TEARS IN MY EYES, TOWARDS THE LIVING ROOM. Just forget them, I TELL MYSELF, YOU CAN KEEP THEM FROM COMING. I TURN ON THE TV BUT THE SCREEN BLARES OUT A WHITE LIGHT. I PUT MY HAND TO IT, AND ONE OF THEM APPEARS IN THE SCREEN. HE LOOKS AT ME WITH THOSE EERILY PALLID EYES, AND HE RASPS OUT WORDS TO SPEAK TO ME.
We ARE COMING FOR YOU, HE SAYS. YOU CAN'T ESCAPE FROM US. DON'T TRY TO. Now I know I CANT KEEP THEM BACK. THEY ARE TOO CLOSE.
I AM VERY SCARED NOW. BUT I CAN'T WAKE UP MAMA. SHE WILL BECOME FRIGHTENED. I MUST DEAL WITH THEM ON MY OWN.
I STEALTHILY MOVE ACROSS THE ROOM AND INTO THE KITCHEN. I TAKE A KNIFE FROM THE FROM THE SILVERWARE HOLDER. AND THEN I HEAR THEM COMING TOWARDS THE DOOR. I CANT FIGHT THEM BY MYSELF BUT MAMA CANT HELP ME EITHER. WHO CAN? I THINK. I AM SCARED THAT THEY WILL GET ME NOW.
And then a thought SPRINGS INTO MY HEAD. E WILL PROTECT ME. E WILL PROTECT ME AND MAMA.
QUIETLY I SNEEK OUT OF THE BACK DOOR AS THEY SPLINTER THE FRONT DOOR INTO TINY PIECES. THEY ARE BEATING IT DOWN. THEY'LL FIND MAMA SOON I HAVE TO HURRY AND FIND E. E WILL PROTECT ME AND MAMA.
I CREEP OUT INTO THE BACKYARD. I'LL HAVE TO GO TO THE DRIVEWAY AND CALL HIM FROM THERE. I'LL HAVE TO CLIMB THE FENCE.
I HEAR THE DOOR BREAK AND FALL ON THE DIRTY CARPET OF THE LIVING ROOM AS THEY COME INTO THE HOUSE. NOW I AM VERY SCARED BUT I CANT STOP NOW IF I DO THE'YLL TAKE MAMA. SO I CLIMB THE FENCE BUT AS I CROSS ON THE OTHER SIDE I FALL AND YELL. . THEY HEARD ME I THINK I HAVE TO HURRY. OH NO HERe COMES ONE OF THEM. HE TRIES TO GRAB ME AROUND THE THROAT BUT I STICK THE KNIFE IN HIS STOMACH. ITS BURIED IN HIS FLESH AND I PULL IT OUT AND THICK BLACK BLOOD SPLURTS OUT OF HIS STOMACH. HE GROANS AND FALLS TO THE GROUND, WRITHING. I RUN TO THE FRONT Yard AND THE KNIFE IS STAINED WITH BLACK BLOOD BUT I NEED TO KEEP IT IN CASE MORE OF THEM COME AFTER ME. UNTIL E COMES.
E WILL PROTECT ME AND MAMA.
NOW IM IN THE FRONT YARD AND I CAN HEAR THEM GOING THROUGH THE HOUSE. I HOPE THEY HAVENT FOUND MAMA. I MUST HURRY NOW I THINK ALL OF THEM ARE IN THE HOUSE BUT MORE WILL COME OF COURSE THEY ALWAYS DO. SO NOW I RUN TO THE DRIVE WAY AND I KNEEL DOWN IN FRONT OF THE CAR. IN ONE HAND I HOLD THE KNIFE AND I'M HOLDING OUT MY OTHER HAND. IF E SEES ME HOLDING OUT MY HAND HE WILL TAKE IT. AND THEN HE WILL PROTECT ME AND MAMA.
I'M HOLDING OUT MY HAND. I THINK I CAN HEAR MORE OF THEM COMING DOWN THE STREET. I HOPE E WILL HURRY, THEY MIGHT FIND MAMA SOON. AND THEY MIGHT POSSESS HER. MAYBE KILL HER. THAT CANT HAPPEN. Hurry UP E, I WHISPER.
Now the miST IS SWIRLING IN THE YARD. ITS SO FOGGY, I CANT SEE ANYTHING. BUT I LOOK TO MY LEFT AND SEE MORE OF ThEM COMING DOWN THE ROAD.
HURRY UP E, I WHISPER.
NOW THE OTHER ONES ARE COMING OUt OF THE HOUSE. I DON'T HEAR ANY SCREAMS.
