Dimitri sprinted up the stairs and was met by a gigantic shadow monster. In his embrace, was a very-terrified Aria. Dimitri jumped toward her, hoping to pull her out of the monster’s shadowy arms, but it disappeared right before his very eyes, taking Aria with it. Dimitri, heartbroken, felt lost in the burning bakery until he noticed the words “The Crypt” seared into the floor where the monster once was.
Dimitri picked up Loki and ran to the nearest window, trying to avoid being engulfed by the flames. On the count of three, he jumped out and landed perfectly on his strong legs. He put Loki down and started running to what was known as the “dark side” of town.
Demonic, crooked looking trees hung low and practically swallowed Dimitri into an ancient, forbidden forest. He walked for miles until finally coming across 10 foot stone that blocked the entry to The Crypt. Dimitri used his super strength to move the hefty rock and in he went.
It wasn’t long before Dimitri found Aria. She was lying on the cold ground, badly burnt and bruised. Dimitri started to dart in her direction, but was stopped by a loud howling noise almost like a train whistle. From the depths of a dark pit inside the cave came the shadow monster. It flew at Dimitri and sent him flying backwards almost as if he were struck by lightning.
Dimitri picked himself up and noticed a pile of large boulders next to him. He picked them up one by one and hurdled them at the monster. They only went right through him. The monster made it’s way over to Dimitri, grabbed him by the neck, and lifted him into the air. Aria sobbed and watched hopelessly. Dimitri flailed in the air and almost took his last breath, but with one final swoop of his arm he reached into the blackness of the monster and ripped out his heart.
The whistle sounded and the shadow vanished. Dimitri dropped to the ground and scurried over to Aria who had fainted from shock. Loki licked her face and she awoke. Dimitri kissed her forehead as he picked her up and carried her out of The Crypt, through the forest, and back home. Dimitri’s mother patched up Aria’s wounds and they all enjoyed her homemade strudel made with only one apple. Dimitri took Aria’s hand with a smile and never let go. The End.
