CREATURE FROM THE LAGOON

The creature clawed its way on shore. Scales covered its hulking body. Milky white eyes blinked against the light. The nose was two slits in its face above a wide, thick-lipped mouth. It had webbed ears and hands. It reached for me.
A scream worthy of a 1950s horror movie burst from me. I scrambled back, stumbling over the uneven and wet ground.
The creature moaned again. It clambered to its feet.
“Stay back.” I grabbed a rock and chucked it at the creature. It sailed past its head. I cursed myself for quitting softball as a kid. Turning heel, I ran.
The creature followed, gaining ground quickly. Icy hands grabbed me and hauled me off my feet. I screamed again.
This was supposed to be a romantic evening with my boyfriend. He had invited me to the lagoon to show me something special. Now I was going to die. Was he going to find my mangled body? I sobbed.
The creature pinned me down. It cocked its head slightly. Behind it, the full moon ringed its head like a halo. It opened its mouth and revealed rows of sharp teeth. Then, it spoke. What it said horrified me.
