    I woke up. My eyes opened. I took a quick glimpse around and quickly shut them again.
    It was silent, I couldn't hear a thing. I counted to three but I couldn't open my eyes. I tried this several times and finally opened my eyes.All I could see was blackness and the stars. The stars sparkled one by one.
    I looked down and was lying on, which looked like grass. It was green and I felt it with my hand; it felt like grass, so I decided it was grass.
    I slowly got up and started walking in this strange environment. I had no idea where I was or where I was going.
    I saw a shack. It was weathered. I stood there and listened for a moment. I glanced at my wrist but my IWatch was smashed. It said 4.50 in the morning I think or was it afternoon; I don't know, can't remember. I looked up and continued walking towards the shack.I reached the door and took a deep breath in and knocked. No answer so I knocked again and still no answer. I took another deep breath and opened the door, ‘Not locked’, I thought and the weathered door swung open. Empty. I reached this odd looking door and with some force, it opened. I wish I hadn't. There was a skeleton sat in the chair.
    I ran.
    I looked back and could no longer see the shack. I looked round and all the stars disappeared.
    I heard voices. Just like the beginning, I was to scared to open my eyes. I really didn't want open them but I had no choice. Someone opened them.There were bright lights and I couldn't move. I opened my mouth; no sound came out and quickly this hand covered my mouth and put their finger to their mouth to signal to be quiet. I nodded and this person removed their hand. I stared at this person. I could only see their eyes; bright blue. I had no idea what was happening, everything gradually went dark. I opened my eyes and it was dawn.
