They were finally upon us. I don’t know what was wrong with me but I still couldn’t think straight. With a piercing scream I dove into the lake and swam madly after Anna, Thrashing my limbs wildly in the frigid water.
I couldn’t let her open the Book.
I couldn’t let it happen.
I saw her reach for the Book and her fingers brushed the cover.
Another scream ripped from my throat. “ ANNA , NO!!
I somehow got up the speed to catch her and grabbed her leg to pull her back.

“James, LET GO !” she screamed franticly. “What’s WRONG with you?!” she kicked me and reached for the Book. Unfortunately she looked up.

They lined the banks of the Lake. We were surrounded by Them.
