The Unknown

You might have heard about it. You might have seen it. You'll never know the difference between it and you. It's everywhere, in your dreams, your life, your reflection. Yes, especially your reflection. That's where you'll always see it. It's there, but your brain, for your own sake. It's too horrible to see, as if you saw Satan face-to-face. Once you see it it never goes away. The sounds you hear at night, creeping, rustling, and what you see moving. You convince yourself, it's the house, it's leaves, it's a bug. It's not, it's what you fear, it's fear itself. You can't escape, those who have tried were killed by fear. A person you all know made a portal for it to come into the world of literature. We know him as Edgar Allen Poe.

Jason's dad said. "I don't want that!" Jason said. "Well, why not? I thought you were sad because he died." Jason's dad replied. "No, I was sad because those cats crushed my frisbee!!" Jason said. Now RoboPup had to be released into the wild. Some say that was the end of Robopup's journey. Some say it was only the beginning. No one ever says it was the middle.
urs in his room and cried in his pillow. Jason's dad was an engineer. He got the corpse of Roscoe and rebuilt him as a robot dog. "Your new name will be RoboPup." Jason's dad said when RoboPup was finished. Jason's dad brought RoboPup to Jason. Jason saw RoboPup and said, "DAD, what
