The haunted wood.

I was going for an evening walk through a vast, dense wood. The hairs on the back of my neck rose as a spine-chilling creature emerged from a shadowy bush. “NO!” I bellowed.  The creature scampered towards me. My heart pounded, I ran as fast as my legs could take me.  On the horizon I saw the safety of the city: the lights of my house shining brightly . I scurried all the way home; still bemused at that chilling monster. The next day when I was walking to school I saw some people entering the eerie wood. Distant screams filled my ears. Was I the only person to make it out of that wood alive?

The figure in the mist

I was once walking along an old twisty track. I normally take the first left when instead I tool the first right. My friends all tell me it’s huanted, but I told them it’s not true. But to do this I had to have proof. So I was going down the first right and  all of a sudden mist came over. And that’s when it all happened; the face; the body and worst of all the scream. I never returned from that trip. Now I terrorise anyone else that goes on that path.

The darkness

“AAAAAHHHHH,” screamed Tom. Someone was chasing him from the darkness: someone he didn’t know. Tom was scared and didn’t know what to do with himself. He just had to run. Suddenly, the man was gone and disappeared into the obyss. Tom came out of the dark woods and then run in the shop.

“What is happening!” cried Tom as he stayed in the shop until he couldn’t see the man that was chasing him…

“”,’…:!

The Stranger in the Mist

As I ran on down the path I came to a gloomy dark wood. The trees stood still like they had cement on their roots; it went on for ever and ever with a ghost like mist running through it. In the mist I faintly saw a figure standing like a solider. The cold delicate breeze ran down my spine and gave me a bad feeling. The mist got thicker and thicker, the figure I could barely see now: what was the figure? A person, or a sign post, or a ghost?

Suddenly I looked back but nothing, it was a dead end. Now I was frightened the figure now coming towards me like lightning, I looked side to side but there was no escape. The mist now gone, all gone; I could see the figure all black, none of its skin showing. I didn’t care about what he looked like though I just tried to run anywhere I could, but there was nowhere. The black outline reached out its hand almost to my face, pushing me back, but I couldn’t do anything.

Into The Mist

“Bye, I’m off to school know.” commented Henna. Henna and her family were new in Whitfield and it was her first day at her new school (Fenix High). Every thing seemed strange; not just the fact that pretty much every thing was new around were they lived now. As she set off down the icy cold and abandoned street, she heard a noise: it sounded like it was coming from the bushes to the side of her. Every were she looked there was spooky (and possibly haunted) paths with mist and fog darting at her every second. It was like a night mere – a bad one at that! Miles long of trees, trees that had been striped of its leaves. It looked like it would never end! At this point she was wishing that her mum had come with her after all!

The Forest Of Forever

He ran through the seemingly endless fog. That dark shadow kept appearing : why was it chasing him? Now his feet felt like jelly, he tried to escape from the grasp of this forgotten creature. There was no knowing where he was going but wherever it was it did not seem good. Then a blood-curdling scream resounded around the forest ; the crows in the tree tops seemed to flock away as he came across a place he did not know. It was a small memorial with a burning fire in the center ( that was the only light )  and it was surrounded by colossal creatures. All had boils rippling around their flabby bodies and knife like horns that were now battered and bruised. Then the shadow that had been chasing him pushed a slender hand out moving him forwards and towards the hell like things…

Homework: Fear.

I sweated as I walked through the eerie darkness; my cold fingers fumbling dumbly for the lamp, which had gone out, leaving me in a black void of death. Thoughts surged through my head uncontrollably as I heard a twig snap. Every muscle in my body tensed like a piece of taut elastic. I stopped, squinting to see if there was anything there. I shook it off, telling myself I was just making it up. I still carried on, intent on getting through this place of horrors. I was on the verge of getting myself together, when another twig snapped. This time nearer. Now I was scared. I stood there, staring into the bleak darkness. I then realised I couldn’t move. I was stuck, paralysed on the border of life and death, yet every second I was slowly moving towards the other side. It then hit me like a bullet. The legend. It was true. Real, and I was experiencing it. I knew I would die. I had played into deaths hands. But was it an accident? I then heard a deafening cacophony, slowly coming closer, out the gloom. Fear gripped me, and then… darkness.

The answer

I was about to find the answer.  The answer to why they left me. Why my parents left me. The look of the forest around me was fascinating…okay maybe a little bit spooky and I couldn’t wait to get out of there. “Am ready to meet my parents?” I asked myself . I looked myself up and down then shrugged. No one was going to reply but I knew that: I was alone alone (I hoped). I walked right out of the forest and crept up to my mothers cottage.. Hands sweating; my muddy finger reached out… I rang the door bell. The door slowly creaked open. A wrinkled face opened the door. “And who are you?” she asked. I took a deep breath,”Your daughter,”

“Sapphire?” my mother asked me. “Is it really you?” She looked at me; right in my strong brown eyes; as if she could see right into what I was thinking. “Why did you leave me?” I asked keeping a  straight face. Not letting a tear drip down my face. “I..I..” she began but then fell to the floor. “WHAT!” I screamed, “Mother…MOTHER!”  She wasn’t breathing. This was the end. I sat up. Then walked out the door. I had to turn away. I had no choice and I wished I did. I knew I would never know the answer.

A Robbery In The Air

It was 12:30 at night, the sky was dark and it was the perfect time for a robbery. Suddenly, the bushes started to move through the darkness and when you least expected it, 2 robbers popped out the bushes, giant bags in their hands. They tiptoed to the cottage in the camp, sneaking through the window and going to the safe. The code was smack down in the middle of the desk – they took it, putting the code into the safe lock. Grabbing the money, they were about to escape and,

“Jeremy, wait,” whispered one robber, “we have the money, but where would we hide it all?
