It was just a normal Tuesday. Dad had dropped me off after our usual stop at Donuts & More. Buffy greeted us at the door, where I said my goodbye. They boys wanted to watch E.T.. Again. So, as usual, I went with Buffy to do laundry in her dark, dingy, musty smelling basement.
Buffy was my babysitter, and I always loved going over to her house. There was always something to do, and even when there wasn’t she still managed to find something. We were never bored.

He was the reason I was trapped down here. I heard the whimper/bark of a scared dog, followed by the sharp sound of glass shattering. I didn’t know what was happening up there, but I did know one thing. I had no way of finding out. Pushing on the door as hard as my toddler body could, the feeling of someone pulling on the door made me feel a little better. I would get out of here. Only, the door still wasn’t opening, and the temperature in that dark, dingy basement seemed to drop. I turned around and saw a large golden retriever, with eyes so red it felt like they were looking right through me. Slowly, the dog started to walk towards me, as I started to inch up the stairs.
