Kate was just 15 when she saw him. A cold dark figure out behind her old oak tree. It scared her more than she could believe. When she saw him again it would not be forgotten.
It was a late afternoon when Kate´s mother told her to go out back and round up the dogs. She walked outside and called all the dogs names one by one. When she got no answer she stepped off the porch and searched. She looked behind the trees and the shed. They were no ware to be found. She wandered a little farther still looking for the dogs when she came to a stop.
She saw him. A dark tall figure behind her old oak tree she had planted when she was only two years old. She felt as if she should run but she couldn´t move her feet. She looked down at the mans feet and saw the dogs curled at his feet as if they were worshiping the figure. Kate screamed for her mother but it seamed as if her mother was a mile away. As the figure came closer to her she screamed again and her mother stepped onto the porch.
Kate looked back to see her mother standing on the porch. She looked back to where the figure was but it had disappeared. She looked at her mother and started to run towards her. the dogs followed and she reached the porch.
"What are you doing?" Her mother asked.
"I was looking for the dogs when I saw something. I tried to move but I couldn´t. Then you came outside and it disappeared." Kate said still with fear in her eyes.
"It must have just been your imagination, okay?" Her mother said pushing her into the house. Her mom then called the dogs inside and forgot any of this happened.
