6:00 a.m. – Katie Harper, a 29 year old woman, awakes to a strange noise.
Quietly Katie gets up, slides on a robe, and walks into the bathroom. The light flickered out. “Honey, the electricity is off. Howard?” Now she stood at the foot of her bed. “Howard, wake up. If your daughter wakes up she’ll freak out, it’s still dark. Get up,” she whispered nudging his leg. Katie moves to the night stand to get a flashlight. Turning it on Katie moved to Howard’s side and pulled down the covers.
Gasping for air, tears streaked down her cheeks. Her husband’s face lay half devoured. His left eye hung in the emptiness of his missing nostril. Quietly, Katie backed up, whining.
Suddenly the door slammed open and shut. Katie spun in terror to see nothing but shadows in the dim light. “Mommy, Mommy!” her daughter cried.
“Jessica!” Running into her daughter’s room, she found her standing on the bed crying, with her teddy bear ripped open, “Oh baby!” Katie cradled her daughter as she scanned the room with the flashlight. “It’s alright now, Jessica. It’s alright. Whatever it was is gone now.” She picked Jessica up. “We’re going to be real quiet and we’re going to get into the car. Mommy’s going to take us somewhere safe.”
“Shh,” she turned towards the door to be face to face with the remembered horror of her childhood. “NO!” she screamed. Grabbing Jessica tighter Katie bolted around the bed and over it trying to get back out the door.
6:30 a.m. – Five year old Jessica Harper is found crying with a ripped bloody teddy bear in one hand and the other holding back a dog beside an unidentifiable mass later found out to be the body of her mother, Katie Harper. The child’s father was also found dead at the scene apparently attacked by the dog.
6:40 a.m. – Jessica Harper is taken into child protective custody. The dog is shot and killed.
