Growing up in this city, we were all told never to go near the line southwest of our town, or risk
being punished. Not much people had known its story, or what does it looks like, we just know that it
was a dangerous place to go to. Generations after generations, the people have believed in this. At
least before me and my friend, Emily decided to find this mysterious line in the unknown land in the southwest.
The autumn breeze blew, and it was already after dark. I snuck out of my window and quietly tiptoed
out of town, trying not to wake anyone. I was trembling, not from the cold, but from deep inside.
"Hey!" I whispered as I carefully climbed into Emily's room through the window. "Let's get going." We scrambled to the outskirt of the town. As we walked out of town, darkness filled. There was no lamps, just the moon, and us. Shadows are dancing all around, some fallen leaves fell on my face, and onto the floor. Dried leaves crumbled under my feet. We were moving slowly, yet steadily.
" Alyssa, I'm tired. Can we stop now?" said Emily. And so we stopped for a rest. I just felt hopeless. I should have stayed home. I don’t know what to do.
In the far distance, there was something. I looked at my map, the line should be near. we pull ourselves
together again and ran towards that direction. I crashed into a glass wall. Inside was shadows and eyes. My
hand started to sweat. What now. There are real monsters in there.
I breathe heavily, trying to piece together all the information I knew. Howls of the unknown creatures
broke the silence. I step back slowly and grabbed Emily's hand, then ran as fast as I can.
I told her "We'll come back another day."
