Catherine and Coriena, were outside playing in the snow. They were getting cold so they went inside to warm up. Catherine looked at Coriena with her long brown hair, and sparkly brown eyes. They found a letter hanging on the christmas tree. The letter said there was a present on the table.
While the girls opened the present they listened to their parents fighting upstairs. When the creature arose from the box Coriena screamed and they ran for their bedroom. The door started to shake, and the creature burnt through the door. We ran passed it and int are parents room.
My dad screamed and told us to head out the door, but when we opened it the snow fell in Vancouver, Washington was having a blizzard. There was no way out, we were trapped. My mom then got a crazy idea to hide in the attic and pile things up over the door.
That's when the monster spotted us, we tried walking away slowly, but the farther we got the faster it started to chase us. When we got up stairs we took turns climbing the attics ladder in a rush. We searched for a flashlight in our old boxes of things. My dad found a sleeping bag with a flashlight rolled up in it. He took the sleeping bag and rapped it around us.
We then seen smoke start to rise through the floor, the monster had knocked over a lamp, and our house was on fire. We were trapped with no way out. We looked around and realized we could break the chimney and crawl out. When we broke a hole big enough to climb through, we helped each other slide off the roof.
Catherine had a smile on her face when she realized that her note to Santa was that she wanted her family to be together.
