Chris Williams stood in his pyjamas, staring out of his bedroom window which overlooked Kingshill Park. He watched as the park-keeper swept up litter beneath the big slide in the play area, close to where he’d seen the Burton’s cat dragged into the tunnel a few days ago. So when the park-keeper crouched down to look in the tunnel, Chris was not overly surprised when a big, black tentacle whipped out and pulled him inside. He was excited, but not surprised.
“Mum! I just saw the monster attack the park keeper! The monster in the tunnel got the park-keeper, Mum!"
Patricia Williams walked into his bedroom with his brother Peter following closely behind, dressed and ready for school.
“Christopher! Will you get ready for school, we are leaving soon," she scolded him. “...and stop telling lies."
