    I accidentally wrote the story in 3rd person instead of 1st so oops
    Tag

    The car stopped outside of a large, wooden house. Alice stared at the floor and didn’t move. Her brother Robert was first to hop out of the car, followed by his mother and father. “And we’re back!” Her mother joyfully told her family. They started to unpack the car until Alice’s father came and knocked on her window, having realized she was still inside. “Are you going to stay in there for the whole week?” His voice was muffled by the door in between them, but Alice still heard the slight laugh in the tone of the sentence. She shook her head, still focused on the floor. Her father opened the car door and grabbed her hand. “Alright then, come on!” he said, dragging her out. The two of them went to the back of the car to collect the luggage which hadn’t been taken out yet. They walked along the brick path leading up to the cabin they would be staying in for the next seven days. About four or five trees surrounded them on this side of the house, but behind was an entire forest. Alice stepped inside the building. Some of the furniture had been remodelled since last year. The sofa was now a light greyish brown colour and the photos of the forest on the walls were no longer in colour, just black and white. The table was the same, made of metal with a metal light hanging from above, the kitchen was also the same and the chalkboard was still there. As always, Alice ran to the chalkboard first. She doodled a small cat in purple chalk. The cat was happy, wandering through the woods.

    The family stayed inside for around twenty minutes, before heading out and doing the activities they always do on the first day here, swimming for a few hours in the pool then going out for some food.

    ***

    The next day Alice woke up. She felt extremely nervous and her pulse was racing. She ignored it and walked downstairs for breakfast. No one was in the room. Maybe they’re just still in bed? I mean that car ride yesterday was pretty uncomfortable. She knocked on her parents’ room door. No reply. Alice knocked harder. Nothing. She opened the door and stepped inside. No one was in there. The nervousness in Alice doubled. She rushed up the stairs to her brother’s room. He wasn’t there either. She crumbled to the floor, curled up into a ball and began to cry. Alice wasn’t sure how long she remained there on the ground, but by the end of it her face was red and the side she had been lying on was in pain. “Ugh! Shutup!” The voice of Robert yelled. Alice looked up confused. There he was, sitting in his bed. Alice signed ‘how?’ but Robert took no notice. He just continued yelling for her to get out of his room. Alice had stopped crying now. She ignored his demands and signed ‘but you weren’t there before, how are you there now?’. Robert picked up one of his shoes beside his bed and threw it at her. Alice leapt out of the room to dodge it and ran back into her own, slamming the door shut behind her. That was one of the many things she hated about being mute. People don’t pay attention to what she’s trying to communicate, especially her brother.

    ***

    Alice’s anxiety had gone down now and she felt normal. But her mind was full of questions, so she went for a walk in the forest. After a while the feeling of fear began to creep back over her. She sat down and tried to breath. Everything was fine. Right?

    Right?

    No.

    She had noticed an unnaturally slender figure in the distance. It was hidden by some trees but it was definitely not a shadow. Alice stood up, keeping her gaze fixed on it. It looked like a human. The being began to move towards her. Definitely not a human. Its movements were too strange. She couldn’t tell how they were peculiar, they just were. The creature was now a few metres away from her. Alice hadn’t reacted until this point. The creature reached out one of its long arms, in the attempts of grabbing her. Alice ducked to avoid it then sprinted back to the cabin. No one was home again. She locked the door and windows then went and hid in a cupboard with a knife. Alice heard intense banging on the doors, windows, walls, everything while the monster tried to force its way inside. Then everything went silent.

    “Alice! Alice where are you?” She heard her mother’s voice just outside the cupboard door. Alice opened it slightly and saw her face. “What were you doing the in there?” She exclaimed. Alice shrugged, moving the knife out of her mother’s view, behind her back. Suddenly the banging on the door started again. Alice watched her mother stand calmly while she vanished. The door was flung open and the monster stepped inside, its head hitting the roof. They reached out their arm once again and grabbed onto Alice. In a deep, cracked voice, they said, “Tag.”, their eyes flashing red as they said it.

    Alice switched bodies with the monster. She was sent back to the part of the forest where she had originally locked eyes with it.

    “What on ea-” What was that voice? Alice had never heard it before. It took her a moment to realize, it was her own! She could speak! “Oh my god!” She smiled. Alice stood for a while, saying words she had always wanted to say. This was amazing! Abruptly, she felt the urge to chase something, no, not something, someone. It was a fourteen year old boy, with brown eyes and scruffy, black hair. She turned around. Alice was unable to see him but she knew that he was in the house over there. She raced to the cabin and smashed a window. There the child was, sitting, petrified, on the sofa, under a blanket. Alice felt no sympathy for him, nor did she think at all, she immediately reached out to the boy. “Tag.” She said. Then Alice realized what she had just done. That was her brother. The world escaped her grasp as everything around her faded, she was gone.

    Edit:

    Prompt: Monster in the closet
    Story:
    Monster in the closet? What a joke, the only monsters to be seen here are in this forest, dreamlike mist filled the air, floating through the fallen hollows of dead trees that littered the forest. There had been a few murders rumoured to have happened in the area, hand-drawn pictures of a man with odd, amber eyes had filled the spots of wanted posters located throughout the town. Though the locals still doubted the murders were even real, as only one victim was ever found, as a pile of bones buried beneath the dirt. And as small towns go, the police department could not afford fancy technology to identify the victim, so they stuck to the rumors of odd townsfolk, drawing up eyewitness pictures of the so rumoured murderer, though these were associated with a bad reputation coming from the people that told them, causing doubt to spread that he was even real.

    However, one night, John, the son of a nobleman, a wealthy and well-respected figure within the town disappeared. His last known appearance was in the woods, as though the son had immense wealth, his father demanded discipline and routine. This resulted in him getting a part-time job at the local apothecary, though the owner had no need for an assistant, she was bribed to hire him and because of the son being employed she kept him busy with trips to the woods for herbs, just to stock up and make him feel useful.

    One trip to the woods went wrong one day, as though John lacked discipline, he was no fool, he was aware that there were wild animals in the forest, and he held some belief to a theory in the town that there was no murderer, but rather a pack of wolves roaming the forest. And because of this, strived to make as little noise as possible while gathering said herbs. Though his intentions at causing little sound were nearly successful, he ultimately failed and stepped on a single fallen branch, giving a loud crack. At that moment, everything went silent, the once dreadful cawing sounds of the birds amongst the treetops stopped and John’s face went pale, a chill sent down his spine, feeling something behind him, he spun around.

    However, no monster was to be seen, so he just stood there, waiting for something to happen, for wolves to attack, but nothing came. Cautiously, he took a step forward and at that moment something flung out of a bush, something that had been watching with glowing amber eyes and in the span of three seconds John was gone, drained and devoid of blood, in what he thought was his last minute that John was alive, he could see a large backed, furry creature, digging a hole at a blinding speed, dirt hitting the ground and accumulating a hefty pile within about ten seconds.

    And as the creature turned around to drag John to what he assumed was his grave, he saw that there was a scar through the creature’s right arm and remembered he had seen a man with a similar design. The man in the town was thought to be an avid user of contact lenses for unknown reasons and was considered an odd townsfolk. John knew there and then that the rumors were true and that there was indeed a murderer. Trying to crawl away, John moved his arms and tried to lift himself up to run, this worked and John ran like he had never before, desperately hoping to warn the town and more importantly preserve his own life. But this was futile as the creature ran to him on all fours and tackled him, he then felt a slicing through his skin and realized his heart had been stabbed by the creature’s now unsheathed claws.

    As John lay on his stomach he let out a scream, going against all of his conditioning done by his father to be a tough man. As he did that he felt regret and guilt, and fell down and died. The scream, however, was heard by the entire town, and rumors spread like a wildfire about the mysterious disappearance and scream of the nobleman’s son, with John, becoming immortalized in a myth that would haunt the town for generations to come
