Little Timmy and his sweet little sister, Jessie, were walking down by the bay. Timmy started to skip stones; they came back to him. He tried another stone and it came back, too. While he was distracted, Jessie started playing in the shallow water - wet, murky, and swampy. Then she started to shake and fell down into the water and …disappeared. She was getting sucked in! In the blink of an eye she was gone. As Timmy ran home screaming he noticed a figure was following him. He screamed louder and louder, but nobody came. He got home and slammed the door. He was only 7 so he didn't know what to do. The monster smashed through the door and then… it was all over. The monster disappeared, mom was cooking dinner, and dad was working, but Jessie was still gone.
