A YA HORROR STORY BY ARTHUR PENDRYLL
Nanny Carla asks Melanie, “Why do you even want to go into the cellar? There’s nothing but bottles down there anyway.”
Melanie is pretty smart, she says… “If it’s just bottles, then why doesn’t mommy want me to go down there?”

You can never get away with anything.
Melanie’ s curiosity, mixed with the element of the forbidden, has made this more than just a side thought. It’s now a quest. She HAS to see what’s down there. She can hear the monster. She can here it breathing. Mommy & daddy have told her that it’s just the wind, or just her imagination, but she’s not dumb. She knows… noises mean something, and there are noises in the basement.
Melanie is a little afraid, she can’t help it. Finding out what is making the noises in the cellar is the only thing on her mind. The trouble she will get into is just an afterthought. Only the noises. She realizes that even though she is scared, she’ll be safe as long as she’s wearing the bracelet that Nanny Carla gave to her. She looks at it, and starts heading down…
