about this story

Brian jumped up out of bed in a rush. He had overslept and was already late for school. He quikly got dressed and ran to the door but his dad, Peter, blocked the way out. "Your late again", he griped, " this is the third time this week.""I know,I'm sorry, it wont happen again". I don't believe you, but what ever. Peter went into the living room and turned on the t.v.
Brian hopped into his truck and sped down the road. about half way to school something hit his truck and it started to roll. The vehicle began to come apart and there was a sudden stop as it hit something again. Brian slowely crawled out of the vehicle and lay on his back. He had a few scratches and bruises but other than that he was fine.
He got up and saw debre all over the road along with some odd shaped craters crossing the road about where he got hit. He looked around to see what hit him but there wasn't even a car in sight. He walked around to the other side of the vehicle and saw a large animal under his truck.
He jumped back as it twitched. Other than that, it didn't move. He crept over to it and gave it a shove. It didn't move again. The animal was about as big as the truck, and had spines all the way down its back. There was a loud roar and screams coming from up the road. He realized it was coming from the same direction as where the odd craters went. Thats when he reliezed. Those weren't craters, but footprints.
Brian took off trying to get back to his house. He traveled block after block, hearing more and more screams and loud, ear busting roars as he went. The ground shook. Cars bounced along with the vibration. Another one hit and this time it hit harder. Car alarms went off. Brian saw an old restraunt that had closed up a while ago. He ducked in through an old busted window and hid behind a short wall that had a painting of a tree on it. A massive animal crossed the front of the store on four legs. Its huge tail swung and pushed a car through a wall across the street.
The animal went up the street and dissapeared. Brian took of for home again and came upon a bridge. He continued on despite the many holes in it and the cars pushed against the sides. About half way across some of the bridge supports gave way. Huge chunks of the bridge fell into the roaring river below. Between the cracks he saw that an animal was rubbing against the supports. It saw him. It jumped up through the holes and snatched Brian.
