FEW YEARS AGO ON HALLOWEEN. I was out trick or treating with my
friends. One of my friends, Callie, told us about all the big houses
down the winding roads, assuring us they had all the big candy. We
agreed, eager to get our hands on king-sized chocolate bars and
enough candy to last weeks.
we followed her lead, walking down the long roads.
first house we got to was huge. It had a big pebble driveway, and we
ran up to the door, knocking with our pillow cases ready.
door opened to reveal a younger guy. looking to be in about his
girls," he said. "I just got home. I don't think I have any
candy. "A little bummed, but still with high hopes, we said
thank you and ran down to find the next house.
we were back on the road, we walked for a bit, the sun slipping down
below the trees. This is when I started to get a little scared. It
was cold, and we'd been walking for some time. They told me not to be
scared; we'd be to the big ones in a minute. Well, they were right.
But candy is not what we found.......
up to a circle-drive, we approached a large black metal gate, dimly
lit by lanterns. "This is what I was talking about!" Callie
said. "We're totally gonna get some great stuff here."
we went down the path. It was lined by great big pine trees that
eerily cast darkness on the path, spooking me even more.
finally got to the house, and I was officially scared. It had creep
decorations, like fake tombstones and zombies and stuff. But that
didn't spook my friends. We went up to the door, and getting closer,
we could see into the house..
had little to no furniture. The only things we saw were this huge
chandelier and a couch under it, covered in plastic.
rang the doorbell, but nobody answered. So we went back down to
leave, and my friend stopped me, needing to tie her shoe.
sat for a second, our two other friends up ahead.
was looking around, when we heard a scream. I looked up to our
friends ahead of us, who weren't looking at us. but behind us. I spun
around, and saw a dark figure moving toward us-fast.
hit m y friend, unable to speak. She looked up at me, as if to say
'what?' and i pointed behind her. As she looked, i finally could
speak, and screamed.
I screamed, and did.
was behind me, and I ran and grabbed her. She finally saw the figure,
closer now, and sped up, running with me.
caught up to our friends, and ran and ran and ran until we reached
the gate. Exhausted, we sat down, out of breath, when i saw some kids
from our school.
go in there, " we told them. "its not safe. We just got
chased!" They laughed and said it's probably nothing, and went
anyway. We turned around, and saw that there was a "NO
TRESPASSING" sign near it. "Wow, ' i said. "thanks for
Callie, Jessie, Rebecca, and i ran home, scared for our lives, and
went to bed. The next morning, when my mom picked me up, i asked her
to take me somewhere, and directed her to that street with the gate,
that had the "NO TRESPASSING' SIGN. trying to see the house.
we got to the area where there were the houses were, we looked all
over, taking different streets, looking exactly where my friends and
i had taken the turn onto that road, and never found it.
don't know what had happened that night, and how we found that house,
but I hope something like that never happens again.......
