Andrew, his mom, his aunt Elise, cousin Duffy, and his sister Marie, go for a trip to a house for the weekend. The place was a little run down. They soon had places to sleep.
Once they get there, they started poking around since the house was enormous! Andrew was the one to find Beware the Sentinel one the wall in black letters. The rest of the party thought he was trying to scare them, but he was scared.
Later, the ONLY two adults, Andrew's mom and his aunt Elise, went to the town. The town was about twenty minutes away! Andrew thought it was a bad idea to be alone without supervision, but they went anyway. That's when they heard the faint scratch, scratch on the door. They soon realised that the Sentinel had found them. But how, they wondered....
Earlier that day, the family had gone on a hike. When the got back, they later realized the Duffy had left his jacket in the woods. The Sentinel of the Woods had found the children by the scent of Duffy's jacket! Now, they had to figure out how to get away!
The children would have to think quickly to escape their prison that they were trapped in by the Sentinel. Outside! That is were they went. The barn seemed like their last hope. To their horror, it was locked up tight by the biggest padlock. Back in the house they went!
After going back in the house the scared, wet, and tired children went to the furthest bedroom in the house. Even then, they were not safe. The Sentinel then comes in the room fangs bared, and says," You forgot your jacket stupid..." He then walks out.
