There’s Something Out There

Journal Entry: 1626, March 16th

Theres something out there.

It is not visible during the day, but it can be seen at night. Two of the lookouts spotted something a few days ago, but they wrote it off as apparition brought on by tiredness.

But last night, fresh from sleep, I saw it and it certainly was no apparition. In the darkness I could make out a deer taking leaves from a bush. In the distance something stirred, an undecipherable being of dark matter travelling at great speed. The being covered ground alarmingly fast, faster than anything I have ever seen. It was low to the ground, and showed an amazing ability to change direction, displaying unbounded fleetness. In an instant, it turned and headed straight towards the deer. Before the deer could react, the creatures jaws snapped shut, cutting the deer in two. The front half hit the ground, twitching. The rear end was dragged off for consumption. For a creature of size, it was astoundingly quiet.

Theres something out there.

This is just beginning, and it may or may not be continued. If it creates suspense, then maybe. If not, it’ll probably be a write off, an exercise for something bigger.

Update: This has not been added to in a long time and may be dead. But if the urge ever returns, or some likes it I’ll attempt to crack on with it.
