A mysterious man is staring at a house from outside. Inside, the mother is asleep while the teenage daughter is in bed trying to sleep. She can't because she's mad after being grounded. She goes downstairs to eat something. Suddenly, the mysterious man (who managed to break in) grabs her and covers her mouth. He starts to walk to the front door but, when he's not looking, she grabs a lamp and hits him in the head. He faints. She's about to go upstairs to get her mother... but she hesitates. It cuts to the next morning. The mother goes downstairs and sees her daughter there. She asks what happens. The daughter tells her everything.
-"And where is the man?"
-"I ate him".
-"You ate him?!".
-"Why are you sorry?".
-"Aren't you mad?".
-"I'm just surprised. I mean, after you said that eating humans is wrong...".
-"I did think that. But now that I had him in front of me...".
-"No need to explain. I know the feeling. I'm glad that you've learned your lesson".
-"So I'm not grounded anymore?".
-"That's right. Now, let's get ready. Your father will be back from hunting any minute now".
They hug and go upstairs. Meanwhile, cries for help are heard coming from the basement.
