It was a normal day. The leaves were blowing in the wind. The sun shinning. Tessa was sitting on the sofa listening to music with her little brother Toby. Her dad came home from work and plonked himself down on the sofa next to them,and let out a big sigh.
"How was work" Tessa's mom asked coming into the sitting room. Her hair was in a messy bun and her clothes were full of flour.
"It was fine, Tony's having a baby" he replied
"Oh that's great, have you seen the news i cant even believe it"
Tessas mom turned on the t.v. and they all watched. A t.v. presenter came on talking about a new disease. It told everyone to stay inside for the better of their saftey
"Whats this crap" Tessas dad said
"Dad this could be serious" Tessa said.
As soon as she closed her mouth they all heard it. A scream. So high pitched it hurt their ears.
"It must be the neighbours fighting again"said Tesaas dad looking at his familys worried faces. Then suddenly there was a loud thwack on the door and inhuman screams.Dad jumped up first and grabbed tobys baseball bat that was on the floor. He told everyone to be quiet as he slowly edged toward the front door. The sound of nails scratching against the door was hard to listen to.
"Mama im scared" Toby cried hugging on to his mother
"Tessa bring Toby into his room and stay there with him"
Tessa did what she was told. They stayed in there together covering their ears from the horrible screams of their dying parents
