@jenjenten It was disgusting! It unfolded these massive insect arms!
KillerSteph, Sun Oct 30, 00:39

@jenjenten Something jumped out of the tree. It bit me then it ran after Erica and Drew. Get help!
Thadalot, Sun Oct 30, 00:40

@jenjenten OMG. It folded itself into a tree stump. Then four eyes poked out and it skittered
sideways. I think it ate Drew's cell.
KillerSteph, Sun Oct 30, 00:41

@jonahdog @thadalot @ericablonde @killersteph @drewdreamey I called 911!

JenJenTen, Sun Oct 30, 00:45

@jenjenten Hurry! It got Drew and he's bleeding bad! We're hiding in a shed by the house.
EricaBlonde, Sun Oct 30, 00:46

@jenjenten OMG! Some of its teeth are sticking out of Drew's thigh. It was only two feet tall
but it jumped on him.
EricaBlonde, Sun Oct 30, 00:48

@ericablonde Jonah made it to the car. @killersteph @thadalot Where are you?
JenJenTen, Sun Oct 30, 00:55

@ericablonde The police are almost here. Jonah's talking to them. Hang on! @thadalot Baby??
JenJenTen, Sun Oct 30, 00:57

@jenjenten I'm so scared! It poked one of its stalk snake eyes through a crack and blinked!
EricaBlonde, Sun Oct 30, 00:59

@ericablonde They're here! Hold tight! The police are in the garden now.
JenJenTen, Sun Oct 30, 01:01

@jenjenten There's so much blood. That thing finally ran away.
EricaBlonde, Sun Oct 30, 01:02

@ericablonde They found Thad! Part of his hand is gone.
JenJenTen, Sun Oct 30, 01:15
