Two days ago, Bar Le Duc was attacked by creatures of the night. Father and several other men took up their staffs and clubs to fight off the creatures, after a pitched battle, he returned bloodied, battered and broken directing me to flee at first chance when they made a last ditch effort against the creatures. I refused and father hid me in the cellar after I promised to keep safe. I can’t describe the horrible sounds I heard that night, the silence afterward was even more frightening. I will have nightmares for the rest of my life… I got no sleep that night, and crept from my hiding place when sunlight crept it’s way in. The imagined horrors of the night before were surpassed by what I saw that morning when I crept out of hiding… everyone in the town was dead, bodies were hung from trees, with their innards splayed out on the grown before them, evil signs were drawn on the ground with their blood and innards… I saw my father’s body there with the others, crying silent tears, I fled into the early morning to find some safety.

That howling sound is one of the sounds I heard two nights ago as my family and friends were killed. I have been running since sunset when I first heard the noise and it has gotten closer, and closer, and closer… I am so afraid. Can you protect me?
