The world is spinning. How did I end up here? All I see is black, black, and more black. How am I still breathing? As the blood rushes to my head, I can hear it pumping in my ears. How am I still alive? I can smell the foul smell of the tar, being forced into my nostrils. How did I get here? I can taste the particles of tar already seeping into my mouth. Who buried me alive? I can feel the tar against my face; it is scratchy, like a wool face mask that is two sizes too small.
Then I have a flash back. I was at a party on the beach, with a few friends, the boom box is blasting Lady Gaga, and everyone is dancing on the sweet, soft sand.
I remember playing man hunt, and hiding behind a huge blueberry bush with berries that made my mouth water, I tried a few, and man, were they good blueberries. Then someone found me, she was wearing a jet black coat, leather pants, that didn’t look real, and tall boots, she was blonde with her hair pinned up. I had never seen her before that night.
Where was she from? Who was she? What did she want with me? These questions were swarming my head, eating at my brain, looking for answers.
Then I hit my head on a huge rock and blacked out. “Think Shelby, think,” I tell myself. I need to remember what happened after I blacked out. But no matter how hard I try, it just won’t come to me. Read more »
My friends Brook, Cadence and I were exploring an old, abandoned house when things suddenly turned scary. It started to rain, and then it started thundering and lighting.
Then a glowing light appeared and we saw a body of a person. We looked at it closer and it was Freddy Cougar. This use to be his house and the worst part of it all was, it was on the most haunted street of all ELM STREET!!!!!!!!!!!! Then he spoke, “GO AWAY OR ELSE”!!!! After that he disappeared.
We didn’t listen to him. We continued to explore the house. Then Cadence touched the wall to find a light switch and she touched something wet and goopy it was BLOOD!!!!!!!! That’s when we heard a scream and we turned toward the scream and Brook was gone. It was just Cadence and I left. Read more »
One day me and 2 of my friends Alexis and Tom were walking down a street from my house and we had past an old abandon house. Alexis and tom said, “hey we should go in and check it out.” As we started to walk up the path to the porch we heard a loud shriek, and then an evil laugh. Alexis and tom said,” it is just a trick so that we wont go inside.” As we stepped on the porch Alexis fell through. We tried to pull her back up but when we did something popped out of the dirt and grabbed her, diapering underneath. Tom said,” we need to go inside and find her.” So we walked past the hole and to the door as we heard another evil laugh MWAHAHAHA. We tried to open the door but it was stuck, but then the door automatically opened on its self. We started to walk around inside. But then my other friend diapered into the dark. I was so scared. So I kept walking on. But as when I was going to step onto the first step of the stairs I fell through the floor and when I hit the floor I saw both of my friends locked up. So I unchaned them. So then we ran up the the stairs of the basement and right out of the house hearing another evil laugh so we ran faster. We all agreed we wouldn’t tell anyone about it. So the next day we were walking up that same street. We walked by that house and we were afraid. So we tied a string too each other and walked up the path to the porch. Read more »
I am with my friends Andrew and Bonnie and me Jack. We’re walking home from school one day when we see an old, abandoned house. We decide to walk up to this peculiar house. As we walk up we notice the grass whistle, fog roll in, and shaking scarecrows. As we’re at the door we all thought the wind screamed. Then we heard it again it said Hosssssss, what have you done with my Hossssssssssssssss. We looked at the door we saw a skeleton head on the knocking ring. I saw chattering crazily for a minute. Somewhat in an awe-inspired trance.Andrew on my left thought it was just his imagination. While Bonnie wasn’t sure whether it was real or not. Although I knew it was real. We could’ve run back right then, but we had to know more about this.Without wanting anyone to hear us, we opened the door, creak creak creaking. It looked ordinary, familiar like any other regular house. I saw a portrait of a rose in a vase, fairly ordinary like a family portrait.Then I went over to the picture with my friends by the door. Right by the door I saw a picture of a murky swamp with skeleton heads. Both pictures were odd in a way, and I don’t know why I did this, but I’m glad I did. I touched the edges and it flung open a little. I pushed it all the way open and found a rose. With this new discovery I went over to the other picture opened it up and found a skull,with each ite put both things on it. Then immediately the pedestal went down and when it went back up again there was a skeleton with a sword in each hand. Read more »
In this world today it's scary to even think
In this world today it's scary to say what you think,
I'm so afraid that the world is going to change in a blink,
It's unfortunate that a girl as storng as her,
Has been torn down and detured,
Because she was such a beautiful girl,
Her world was large and bright and her worlds unferled,
And it's so scary how we have to hide from the monsters,
From how scary reality is today for us, Read more »

Falling cascading down
Into the unknown realm
Realm of unidentified creatures
And unnatural circumstances
Creatures with big eyes
And long pointy teeth
Creatures with noses the size of the moon
And 20 foot belly buttons
With feet shaped like bananas
and legs fatter than fat
The grass is orange
The ground is a sponge
The sky turns yellow with purple stripes
And when I look down and see blue legs…
Through this realm
Realm of unknown
Scary and terrifying
Unlike anything else possible
But it’s there
I’m sure of it Read more »
An ostrich. Fast, ugly, greasy, tall, horrifying animals.
First impression: man eating death trap.
I personally am afraid that the large nasty bird will chase me,
Then peck out my eyes.
They look at you with their beady little eyes, and big talons.
Those look like they will crush you.
No bird should scare people as much as this creature does to me.
Final impression: man eating death trap.
Feeling forced to do something that you don't want to do.
How could he make me do that?
What will he do if i don't?
It's no big deal if i do, no one will find out.
I can't believe he did that, he lied to me, he told everyone.
Why was i ever interested in him?
I will never do something that someone is trying to force me to do.

I hear a slam. I run upstairs knowing that it wasn’t my mom or dad, not even my sister. I knew this because both my parents work until 5:00 pm and my sister had a soccer game today. I was supposed to be by myself after school. I thought to myself, it was just wind Alex, stop getting all jumpy. I tried to clear my head, trying to focus on my science homework. It worked.

Through the window I saw it…
Fat, and green,
Ugly, and mean.
Every five seconds it made a croak;
it sounded like a painful choke.
So scary perched upon a lily,
“Man, people think I look silly.”
As I watched the slimy creature float on by,
It gets hard to stare at it when it’s staring you in the eye.
So low, and still it was
Watching for black prey flying above.
I crept outside to see if it had floated away.
As I walked down into the misty bay,
all I heard was a tiny splash,
and that tiny sound made me dash.
I thought about what I had seen that day,
and how I wish it hadn’t floated away
because now no one will know about the creature and say,
“We need to ban it somehow, someway!”
Then I will have solved the mystery,
And I’ll go down in history!

I’m standing at the edge of the forest.
I can see,
See them all.
There are at least 20 of them!
Power overcomes them.
Heads moving in small segments so fast,
Your human eyes can't notice.
Cool air escapes from their mouth,
Rolling off the tips of their icy tongues.
They can smell me.
One bloodsucker steps forward,
With his black cloak of hair shining so magnificently.
He smiles towards the forest.
He listens to my blood, Read more »
When i turned it was gone
just a shadow on the wall
never to appear again
wondering what it was
i see a tail disappearing into the distance
around that corner
i go to follow it
but i cant see anything then suddenly
there it is
in my face
snarling and frothing at the mouth
i can see its sharp teeth
they are astoundingly scary and huge
i try to scream but nothing comes out
just a whisper of sounds
nothing loud enough for others to hear
scared i start to cry
tears are flowing down my face
i start to bawl
then my brother takes of the mask
I was just walking down the sidewalk. When suddenly, I started hearing noises behind me with every step I took. When I stopped the noise stopped, I started to walk faster. The noise got closer and louder. Then I started power walking. I guess you could say my fear had taken hold of me. Then the noise was even louder like there were footsteps behind me. So I just started running and thinking of nothing but getting away. From what? I don’t know what or who it was. I’m scared out of my mind. Read more »
In the Dark

Can you imagine driving home on a cold stormy night? You could be hearing ghost sounds in your car! As my mom was driving, I heard a big crash. BOOM! I jumped up out of my seat and asked, “What was that?”My mom’s eyes got enormous and scared. Now, I was even more frightened as she said, “I don’t know.” Again, I heard a big crash. I was freaking out. My mom was still driving but it was pitch black out and raining. It was so foggy out that she could hardly see. We were almost home when…
I heard the loudest crash of my life! Now, I was so scared I started to cry. I wanted to get out of the car and run! We finally made it home.

Well I wouldn’t say gotten used to, more like learned to ignore it. Anyway, everyday after school I have soccer practice, and after practice the quickest way home is through the graveyard.

In my town is a
haunted house haunted by a
little scary girl
The cold metal of my .308 was the only reassurance I had after the infection escaped. I thought that I would never have to use it, I never thought that humans could reduce themselves to what passes as human now. It has been approximately three years since the initial escape and I have had to flee my fort, my provisions were getting way too low to count as safe. I have to get through what's left of Washington D.C and then to the docks. I heard rumors before all communication went down that some of the ships didn't make it. All I would need to do is get the ship in at least 20 feet of water, none of them can swim or that tall. If the rumors aren't true then, I'm going to have to hole up in the Pentagon. With either situation I'm going to need more ammo, a lot more ammo. I'm going to need to stop by the Pentagon anyway then, maybe clear a space in case the ships aren't there. Read more »
One night I was waiting for Will. It was 2:00 at midnight and I was thinking that he wasn't going to show and then I heard leaves crackling.
I looked back and saw a shadow creep behind a bush. I stood up as fast as I could. I started to hear voices. I started to walk over to see where the shadow creeped over to and when I looked it was gone. Then I heard Will's voice. I ran over to meet him. I was sweating and my face was as red as a strawberry. When he saw me he asked me if I was OK. I said I was fine but I was still wondering what that shadow was from but other than that my day was fine. Read more »

its two-thirty, am. I can't sleep. I roll over and curse at the clock and flop back down in a heap of hot blankets. After a few minutes of daydreaming,a noise, just out side my window gives me a slight tug into reality, then a louder noise, makes me stiffen in my bed. out side my window, under the deck i can hear the ladder shake, and soft thumps on the dirt.
Robber? Murderer? Creep? Drunk? Animal? Bear? Dog? I thought feeling a tingle shiver down my spine. Its quiet now, but then- another, louder shake. I'am scared. In a flash I leap out of my bed, turn on my light- all of my lights, and run for the bathroom to take a shower, and hope that it was just the lack of sleep.
Braving The Knife Edge
By Forrest Wallace
I hiked up the last stretch of trail to the clearing. I turned and looked behind me. My mom and sister walked towards me, both with camelback tubes in their mouth drinking crazily.
“Want a break?” I said “yes” said my sister. I sat down on a rock and reached towards my dad for the gourp, a mixture of M&M’s, nuts and raisins. I took a handful of gourp and devoured it quickly.
“Sooo, when are we gonna eat lunch?” I asked. My dad turned to my mom
“Ummmmmmm, do you want to eat at the top.” He asked her.
“No, you guys eat at the top, I’ll eat when you get back, I really don’t want to go.”
“Are you sure?” I asked.
“100%” she replied.
“No,” said my dad “we’ll eat with you when we get back down.”
“No, really,” argued my mom “I can wait.”
“No, no, its okay.” my dad replied, “We can also wait.”
“Oh fine,” said my mom in a very exasperated voice “I’ll come to the top.”
“No, you don’t need to come.” my dad said hurriedly.
“Well, I will. Replied my mom, quite angrily.
We were about 1.5 miles up Angels Landing, a hike in Zion National Park. The section we had left was up a rock outcrop. Farther along the outcrop was a section about 2 feet wide with 900 foot drops on either side. This is why my mom didn’t want to come. Closing the gourp forcefully, my mom shoved it into my dad’s hands and stomped away.
“Well, are you coming??????” she yelled over her shoulder. We all got up and followed after her. We found her waiting before the entrance to a section of the trail which was rocky and had chains bolted into the rock for grip. I kept hiking and eventually zoned out. I came back to the present when my mom told me to slow down. Read more »

The knife, it was lying on the counter the one that had stabbed into him. Sara then whispered,"The father, the father shall come alive tonight!" and with that a gust of wind shot through her father's wounded chest and knocked Sara out cold.
