It was a rainy day down in Derry, my brother Penny was asking for a boat to go sail down the gutters, like he always does, asking his big brother Bill to make him one. Before he left, I had a sudden feeling of worry, and told him to be careful, and off he went. This is where the thing made it's first appearance in Derry.
As Penny was running with all of his will, his boat suddenly took a sharp turn into a gutter, and that made Penny sad. He looked down the drain, trying to find his boat, when suddenly, A clown peered up and told Penny that he had his boat, but Penny knew not to take things from strangers. Penny said so and that's when the clown introduced himself as Georgie, so Penny felt fine now, and reached for the boat. That's something he should've never done, as it had costed him his life, as Georgie ripped his arm right off. Later that night my friends Richie and Edison found Penny and informed my family and the police.
I had recently heard a killing of a 5 year old child, so I went to the crime scene, and what I found was disturbing. A picture of Penny. I set out to contact my friends, as we had promised as kids to kill whoever did this.I had a few friends as kids, and as soon as Penny dissapeared, we set out to find who did it. We would later set out to the sewers to find the Thing. As we went, we heard so many noises and got lost in so many confusing twists and turns, until we found it, we found The Thing.
As we closed into the center of the drains, we heard the Thing call out our names, and telling us it has been waiting years to finally see this day become a reality. All the boys, now men, wanted to do was to finish it, and get justice for Penny. Though it may have seemed like hours, they defeated the Thing, which had turned into a spider, with one tactic. Beating it up until it was dealt a slow, painful death.
After their impressive defeat over The Thing, they needed to find a way out. Now all of their confidence suddenly drained, as they now thought they were trapped. They tried many methods, but only one worked. That method was to pray together and create a page full of kids names that the Thing had slaughtered. Eventually, this worked and they all reappeared outside.
Now that they had defeated the Thing, they had all decided to go back to their normal lives. Edison had a family to take care of, Richie had to go back to Paris, and I was here all alone. Now knowing I'd feel safe for the rest of my life.
