The Puzzle

One day when I was home alone a parcel was left at the door. I opened it and there was a box. Inside there were puzzle pieces. I didn't think much of it and left it at that.


Later that night when I was in bed, I heard noises outside my window. Scared, I decided to solve that strange puzzle to keep my mind off of the spooky noises. As I was putting it together I realized that the puzzle was of my bed room.

Scared and yet curious I continued to solve the puzzle. Until I noticed that I was in the puzzle solving a puzzle and that there was a tall dark man outside my window holding a knife!

Totally freaked and dazed I looked slowly up at my window and there he was the man from the puzzle looking at me! I screamed as loud as I could and ran into the lounge and tried to tell mum what had happened. She completely ignored me like I was invisible or something.

That was when I realized she COULDN'T see me. Horrified I ran outside only to feel a sharp pain right in my back I turned expecting the man from the puzzle. As soon as our eyes met... I woke up!
