Story Re-Write: The CreatureA flash of lightning illuminated the Creature's wet fur. The pouring rain soaked it further as it moved in for the kill. A terrified girl trapped in a corner with no escape except facing the beast.
The girl could not see the Creature clearly because of the darkness that surrounded them, but she could see its fangs and claws glistening in the moonlight. Fangs and claws that could tear through flesh as easily as a knife cuts through butter.
Against the beast, the petrified girl had no defense. She was only six, which meant that she was not fast enough to slip past it, or Strong enough to keep it at bay. She didn't even have a weapon. But what did it matter? It had just killed everyone. So whether she had a weapon or not did not affect the situation. There was no doubt that the young girl would die. The situation was hopeless.
So the young girl did the only thing she could. She waited for the death that she knew was to come. Although she was absolutely terrified, she decided to be strong
FFFFFFFUUUUUUUUUUUU--I was in a zone. Absolutely nothing could stop me now. I grinned to myself as my fingers flew across the keyboard, my thoughts flowing smoothly into writing. The feeling of an amazing idea popping into your head and being able to instantly put it down on paper, there's just nothingelse like it. There are times that I just can't seem to make my hands move fast enough, desperately trying to capture the idea for fear that it will leave as quickly as it came.

And that's what it happened.

"Hm?" I hummed, looking up from my work. "Oh, yeah, sure thing." I quickly got up, grabed the trash, and ran it outside.
a dangerous hallucinationThe light coming through the window was bright,
much too bright.
Even though my eyes were closed
I could see it-
The skin of my arms prickled,
sweat dripped from my brow.
It was two in the afternoon but…
the sun was setting
through the window facing east.
I should have seen the hutch,
shelves lined with bone china
decorated with delicate leaves and vines.
I was so thirsty
and reaching for cups that should have been there.
Instead I found a billboard of butterflies,
the colors raging
more than any rainbow
I'd ever seen.
Their wings fluttered and flashed
yet somehow they moved in slow motion.
I wanted to stand,
wanted to reach out and touch them but…
I couldn't move,
and yet I laughed
ignoring my dry mouth
and the tingling in my feet.
There was a tempest
on the rise
and in my blood.
A sugar rush disguised

There was a small vial
of insulin in my pocket
that I nev
