I screamed as though the whole town could hear it. Quickly, my cousin covered my mouth, shutting me up.

I looked at him evilly, while wondering where everyone else is. “Where is everyone?” I asked quietly. He dragged me out to the yard and when we got there, everyone popped out from hiding. Along with everyone else he yelled “RAAAAR!!!!” I screamed for so long, it was hard to forgive them.
