Spooky/Scary Stories Contest Entries: 3rd- through 5th-Grade
The Portage County Gazette’s first “Scary/Spooky Story Contest” entries, 3rd- through 5th-Grade:
Once upon a time, a ten-year-old boy was a bully in school. One night, he went out into the woods which was located on block away from his house. He got lost in the woods. Then he heard a loud “BANG!”
He had a bag full of snacks and a flashlight, just in case. He went to get his flashlight and it was not there.
Next, he heard another “BANG!” That one was louder than the first one. Then, he saw a ghost eating green squirrels and pink foxes.
Then, there was a zombie and a skeleton. They were all saying “stop bullying! OR ELSE … or we will eat you!”
“Ok,” the boy said.
“Now, go home.”
“Ok!” shrieked the boy. He ran home. Now he never snuck out and he never, ever, ever, ever was mean again! I think he learned his lesson. Ha ha ha!
The Big Scary Teacher
We were in the classroom doing a math test, when something happened. The teacher had grown vampire teeth.
That was scary. Mrs. Boby was a vampire, so we tried to do something, but nothing worked. But we had tried everything.
“I wish something would have worked. Now what do we do? She is going to suck our blood. Ahhhhh! Ok, now I’m freaking out. Ahhhhh we don’t know what to do! We don’t know what to do!”
“Calm down, she’s not going to suck our blood.”
“Ok, now I’m calm.”
“But what about when mrs. Boby comes to see our tests?”
“Oh you’re right, she will come to every desk and suck our blood.”
“How about when she leaves the room? We will turn in the tests and then we will sit down.”
“Then we will go trick or treating alive and will have a happy ending.”
One day a long time ago, I went to a house at 3 a.m. I went to the house and saw cats- black cats. They bit me, so I bit the cat back. The cats ran after seeing a skeleton head and a ghost.
I went to the door, the door was gone. I looked at my phone, it was 4 a.m. I said “oh no.”
The ghost bit me, and I bit back again. When I looked at my phone, it was 5:59 a.m.
I said, “oh.” When it is 6 a.m. I will turn into a ghost. At 9 a.m. I was a ghost an a zombie. We bite people and they turn into a zombie.
The warlock brings the howling hound out of the portal, and all the monsters. The monsters are skeletons, trolls, goblins, and ogres.
The buddies went in the haunted house. They did not know that it was haunted. Then they saw the skeletons. They cried, escaping, but the buddies got caught.
The buddies attacked the skeletons. The skeletons fell to the ground. The trolls burst out of the ground, and they grabbed the buddies and walked them up the stairs, but the pups that the trolls have are fake.
The sun was coming up and the hound faded away.
The Cottage in the Woods
Once upon a time, an 11-year-old girl named Clarity (CJ) Montgomery was sitting in her room. Then, Amber Montgomery, her mother, came into CJ’s room. CJ groaned, because today was the day CJ’s parents left for Africa for six months!
She buried her face in her hoodie.
“C’mon,” said Mom.
“No!” said CJ.
She had to spend six months with her grandmother!
“Get in the car.”
One hour later…
This is it! Oh my gosh! She was staring at a creaky old cottage.
“Go on now,” said Dad.
“Bye Mom! Bye Dad!” Clarity said angrily. “I love you!”
“Clarity!” Grandma Montgomery said happily.
“CJ,” CJ mumbled under her breath. She thought she saw a person in the window. She was SURE she saw a person in the window. Every day there was a person in the window.
One time, when Grandma was at bingo, the lights went out! And the person in the window as right there smiling at CJ! She screamed, but…wait…?
She wasn’t in her grandmother’s cottage! She was lying in her bed, staring at her mom, dad, and her little brother Alfie!
“Awwww! I thought you were dead!” said Alfie.
“Alfie!” said Mom.
CJ made a fist at him.
“B-But Grandma’s… and A-Africa!”
“Oh sweetie!” said Dad, “that’s next week.”
“Nooooo!” cried CJ.
The Bunny Vampire
One Halloween night, Hana the bunny was home alone while her parents were taking her little sister trick-or-treating. She heard a knock at the door. She felt scared, because the man was wearing a black boogy mask and was holding a big sack.
Suddenly, she was in it!
The next thing she knew, she was different, but she did not know why.
Later that night, she had the craving to bite somebody and her mouth started to hurt. Then she turned into a vampire. She wanted to bite someone so badly, but she fought through it. She went home and made a potion that would change her back to normal.
Her parents never found out.
Ole went into the treehouse that was Louise’s. They change in their bathroom. Ole was a pig, Louise was a cow girl. They walked to Mrs. Arneson’s house. It is a long, long walk.
When the dogs got there, they said “trick-or-treat!”
“I don’t have any candy; the stores are all out that are around here. But I do have apples and bananas, want some?”
After that, they went to Mrs. Grace’s house. That was a long walk too. When they got there, someone jumped out and said “boo!”
“Ahhh!” they shouted.
They were going to say “trick-or-treat” but they said it quiet and a little bit scary. He gave them two pieces of candy, they were dog bones.
Ole said quietly “that was a little bit weird that they had candy and that they jumped out on us.”
Louise said “Maybe Mrs. Arneson got hers from Walmart and Mrs. Grace got hers from Copps, mystery solved,” and they went home.
They turned around and said goodbye to the houses and walked home carefully.
There was a high school with three smart girls that always listened. They loved their teacher, and she loved Campbell, Anna and Rio. But one day, Mrs. Dayton went missing.
Campbell, Anna and Rio were getting suspicious, because she wasn’t in the classroom at 9 a.m. Campbell, Anna and Rio all thought that she went missing, or was getting married!
Campbell said “let’s go find Mrs. Dayton!”
Anna and Rio said, “yeah!”
So the three girls stayed after school. Campbell, Anna and Rio looked in her desk. Anna found a note in the desk, and the note said “I’m going to the circus to find my brother, he’s missing.” The other part said “I took your teacher. If you want to find her, look at the circus in town.”
So the three girls went to the circus to find Mrs. Dayton. They went to the circus, and they saw a clown going into the back. So Campbell, Anna and Rio followed the clown. They saw a cage for tigers, but instead it was Mrs. Dayton. She was sleeping, so they woke her up.
Mrs. Dayton was so happy to see them.
Campbell said, “Why are you in a cage?”
Mrs. Dayton said, “A clown!” Mrs. Dayton was shivering.
Anna said, “Did you say clown?”
Mrs. Dayton said, “Yes! Can you please get me out?”
“Yes we will,” said Rio. So they got her out of the cage.
The three girls and Mrs. Dayton ran to school. Mrs. Dayton said, “thank you so much.”
Campbell, Anna and Rio said “you’re welcome.”
The door busted open, it was a clown! Mrs. Dayton and Campbell, Anna and Rio all ran out the door and the clown was never seen again, but Mrs. Dayton’s brother was found in a sewer in Stevens Point!
Once, four friends, Zombie, Ghost, Skeleton and Spider, love to play and scare people.
One day, Ghost decided to scare his friends. Ghost knew just what to do.
Spider gets taken off from Ghost. Zombie and Skeleton go to look for him. Spider drops in a pumpkin patch and gets lost. Ghost goes to get Skeleton. Ghost takes Skeleton to a haunted house. Skeleton tries to get out, but the door is blocked, so Skeleton gets lost.
Ghost takes Zombie to an abandoned hospital. The friends get mad at Ghost.
“Arrrgggg!” Zombie broke down the door! Zombie takes a hospital bed and runs to the haunted house that Skeleton is in, and brakes down the door.
Skeleton grabs the door to break the fence to the pumpkin patch, and gets spider. The three guys team up to get Ghost. They did the biggest, the baddest scare of all.
Zombie’s all over the place. Left, right and center.
“Aooooooo!” yelled Ghost.
Mini spiders crawled all over Ghost. Skeleton came up from the ground and scared Ghost half to death.
“Got you!” the three said. “Ha haha.”
“Now I know not to scare you guys,” Ghost said.
In 1997, on Halloween night, four brothers were born. The brothers’ names were Rob, Bob, Ray and Joe. Joe was five minutes younger than his other brothers.
One day, after school, Joe was doing his homework and outside his dorm room he heard a groan. He went outside his dorm room and he said “hello.”
Suddenly, he was blind folded and ten minutes later he was in a dungeon in a cave.
He said “hello” again. He was so scared.
Suddenly, a shadowy, tall figure started to go towards the dungeon. Joe started to walk deeper in his dungeon, when the shadowy figure started to walk closer.
Suddenly, Joe knew who that was. It was Big Foot!
Big Food said “Hello, Joe.”
Joe said “How do you know my name?”
Big Food said “My mummy has it and hooked a tube up to your brain and scanned it.”
“Where are we?” Joe said.
“In the woods,” Big Foot said.
Then it was Halloween day. Joe had a plan to escape. That night, at midnight, he put his plan into action.
He said, “Perfect, Big Foot is out in the woods and the mummy is asleep.” So he squeezed through the dungeon bars and snuck out. But when he put one foot out, he saw a shadowy figure, so he hid in the bushes. A branch snapped. The shadowy figure heard it and looked around.
Joe thought it would be the end of his life.
The Evil Banana
I’m asleep and having a dream that a banana was whipping me with its peel, until it knocked me unconscious. I was so scared.
I woke up and still thought it was real. I would feel better if I ate a banana and a cup of soup. I was lucky there was still a banana.
Once I finished my soup, I went to get my banana… there was no banana. So I went for some pizza. I put it in the microwave, and when I sat down there was a banana split in the microwave. I went to the other side of the counter, and saw my weird sister, Giana, eating a banana and pizza. It was her the whole time.
It was a stormy night. Two men were fishing. One caught three fish, and they went home afterwards.
When they got home, they put the fish in a fish tank. The fish realized what has happened, and they started to go insane. They got pooped out, and they went to sleep.
They had a dream about what they had got themselves into. The next day, Mr. Fish says to Mrs. Fish, “I have a plan to get us out of here.”
“What are you talking about?” Says Fish Jr.
“Oh no, it looks like we are going to be fried in three days. If we don’t get out of here, we will be on a fish sandwich and be eaten!” screams Fish Jr.
The cooks are getting fish cooking tools. We need to get to the lake, but first we had to get through the ocean first.
We had to make it out of the kitchin before three days, or we will be fried in a skillet and on a fish sandwich and have no mercy.
“If fish Jr. asks what we are going to do, we are going on a road trip to the ocean,” said Mrs. Fish. “Quick! We can get to the ocean by the water stream.”
Five hours later, we are at the ocean.
“Now we have to get passed the flesh-eating sharks!” cries Fish Jr.
“No! Fish Jr. that was very dangerous, you could have gotten yourself killed.”
“Oh no, one is coming towards us. It looks hungry, swim for your life!”
Now they are all coming towards us. We are surrounded. We are doomed.
“Swim under the sharks, I will hold them back,” called Mrs. Fish.
“Come on Fish Jr., we need to get out of here.” That’s what Mr. Fish said to do.
One hour later…
“Mom, where is dad? Is he ok?”
“I don’t know, Fish Jr.”
We are at the lake, safe and sound.
“Mom, is that dad?”
“You must just be seeing things.”
“I am not, that is dad.”
We are a family again, and we are safe and sound in our home.
One upon a time, I was in my house, home alone. And the people to my left lived in a haunted house. I never knew who lived in there. Then, I heard a knock at my door.
I quickly ran and blocked all the doors. Then, my parents, brothers and sisters came home. I was so happy.
The next day, I went to the haunted house and rang the doorbell. No one answered. So I went home. Then, someone rang my doorbell. I opened the door, and then someone took me into the haunted house. They kept me in their house with no food or water. The next day, they let me go back to my house.
I hope that never happens again.
There was a boy named MJ. He was the best basketball player ever, but there is something you don’t know…
First, on his team everyone liked him a lot, because he was fun, but on the other hand he was scary!
Just don’t leave yet, things are starting to get real.
Next, MJ always goes for a morning run through the graveyard to think about when he is going to die.
That might happen sooner than he thinks!
Out jumps zombies, skeletons, and most odd, a clown. He jumped! Then, he put on his uniform and got a basketball from his bag.
Boom. Boom. Ouch!
The skeleton lost their bones. The zombies melted.
Finally, he went home. He sat in his chair at his desk and turned on his lamp he got from his grandma. What happened? He started to remember it was not pleasant, but he was glad. He remembered she came with him for his run and, BOOM! And she was gone. He had to go back for her, he missed her more than a lifetime.
The Haunted Ghost
Once upon a time, there was four kids. Their names are Owen, Evan, Allie and Alaina. One night, all of them were taking a walk. They passed a house, and the house was by a graveyard.
They heard noises in the house. Owen really wanted to go in, so bad. So, we did. It was really dark and spooky. It had spider webs everywhere.
Evan said, “let’s split up. Allie and Alaina, you go in the haunted house. Me and Owen will go in the graveyard.”
Allie and Alaina did not see anything moving, but they did hear something moving upstairs.
Evan and Owen were in the graveyard. They didn’t see anything.
The girls ran upstairs. They saw the ghost! The boys ran upstairs.
“What is going on?”
“We see the ghost!”
“Well, try to get it!”
“We are trying to get it!”
“Let me get it!”
“We will help you.”
The ghost was knocking down everything. We saw a cage on a rope.
“We can trap him with the cage,” said Alaina.
“But where is the rope to knock down the cage?” said Allie.
“I found it,” said Owen. He pulled the rope and the cage flew down on the ghost.
“We got him!”

“Ok,” I said.
I told my family about the haunting creature in my room, but they weren’t really paying attention. They were only paying attention to breakfast.
When it was time for bed, I asked Mom “Can I sleep in your bed tonight?”
“No, you can’t,” she said with a sleepy voice.
Then that night, it came again, but this time I sat up and said “who are you?”
“Mom,” it said. “I’m your mom.”
“Wait, so that wasn’t a monster, that was you? Scary, but cool. How come you looked like a monster?”
“Oh,” she said. “I was wearing big pants that night.”
“Oh, so that’s why.”

When everyone got ready, they went to the neighborhood to get some candy. At the first house, they had to do a trick to get some candy that you want. I had to pretend I was helping another person, because I was a good witch that helped humans and other witches.
We were almost to the last street, which was long. And Grant went with Morgan to the next house, and then a witch started to talk, but it was just a toy from Home Depot and Grant started to cry because it scared him.

The Wolf Invitation
One day, a long time ago, I was listening to music and there was a howl at my door. I was home alone. My name is Adeline Judd!
I ran up to my bedroom! I was so scared! I put all my blankets on me to hide myself! I think it is…a-a wolf!
I wish my mom was here, I said to myself. She knows I am only nine years old, why would she leave me home alone? It is almost 12:00!
They are still howling, so I went outside to see what it was. I slowly walked down to the door and I opened the door slowly.
It was dogs from next door! I laughed until I got upstairs.
Once I got upstairs my mom got home. She yelled, “Adeline, why don’t you come down here and tell me about your day?”
“I heard a weird howl outside my door.”
“What was it?”
“It is a surprise,” I said.
I mean a wolf!
Rose’s Wolf Pack
One upon a long, long, long time ago, I was watching a scary movie. When I went upstairs to go to bed, I heard a howl. I opened my door. I saw three wolves at my door! I was so scared!
I had a bat in my room. I grabbed it. I opened the door and this time there were 10 wolves. I raised the bat up, three wolves ran away and then there was seven solves in the pack.
The pack howled at the moon. I ran inside and called my mom and dad. When I told them, my mom gasped and my dad laughed.
When my mom was little, she came face-to-face with the same wolf pack. When I went to the door, all the wolves were in the house. I ran to my room. I pushed all of my huge things as fast as possible in front of the door. I even pushed my bed.
It was not strong enough. The wolves ran in. I hid in my closet! My heart was pumping!
Before I knew it, all the wolves were snuggling in my closet. The alpha woke up and started licking me.
That is how I got my wolf pack.

Henry, at 3 a.m. on Friday, knocked on Zack’s door and got started. Zack and Henry went three miles to get to the witch’s house. Zack knocked in hopes that the witch named Sasha had seen it. But she did not.
After that, Zack invited Henry for dinner. Henry did indeed come. After dinner, they went four miles. On the way, the witch Sasha offered to help. Henry and Zack said yes.
The four miles led to a house of straw and wood. Zack knocked. After, there was still no reponse. Zack, Henry and Sasha heard a footstep. It got closer and closer. When they saw it, it…
Was a BUNNY! But when it opened its mouth, it was a VAMPIRE BUNNY!
They all ran into the house, into the backyard, on their knees. The bunny didn’t find them though.
Solve the case!
Then, a scarecrow came into the backyard. The scarecrow explained that he had found it laying around. He also explained that the vampire bunny does not suck blood, it sucks the juice out of candy.
Zack invited everyone over for dinner. After dinner, they all went home. Happy Halloween!
The Graveyard Ghoul
One day me and my best friend, Colton, were walking home from school. We always walk past a graveyard. We heard a creepy story about a kid walking in there and never coming out!
Well, one day we were walking home from school, and we saw a hand sticking out of the rock hard ground! We had to decide if we should go in there. Colton wanted to and I didn’t. We did rock, paper, scissors, and Colton won. So we went in the graveyard. But when we looked at the grave where the hand had been seen, the hand was gone. There was a hole instead.
I began to feel creeped out by the whole situation. Suddenly, I could feel a cold hand on my shoulder. I turned around and saw an ugly face with only one eye and about ten stitches. Colton and I ran to the gate but we couldn’t escape. Ten zombies were blocking the graveyard gate. Every single zombie looked the same except one. One of them was an ugly blob ghoul thing, way in the back, and way bigger than a zombie. The ghoul shouted, “Get them!’’ The zombies attacked.
Colton and I took a run for it. There was a little hole between the zombies, so we took a chance and we ran for it. We made it out! We ran to my house, faster than either of us had ever run before.
Colton slept at my house that night. We could hardly catch our breath all night long. In the morning we asked my mom to drive us to school, rather than risk a second zombie attack. There has been no news of any recent attacks, but Colton and I know what happened that night and will NOT go that way to school EVER again!

In the middle of the night, Jenny had to get up to use the bathroom. She looked behind her and standing right there was a monster. Jenny went downstairs and she saw her husband laying on the couch and the monster was right behind her. She screamed “AHHHH!” Then she called the police. The police did not see anything.
The police said, “Maybe it was just your imagination,” but they still say the monster still haunts the house.
One day, a kid in a little house called Liam woke up at midnight. He exited the room to get a little bit of food. He saw his parents were gone. Now he is getting a little bit scared.
Suddenly, he saw a puddle of ink. Liam was like, “I don’t care,” but then something came out of it. It was Bendy the inkman!
“What?” said Liam with a strange look.
Bendy started to chase Liam. When Liam went up the stairs, he turned so fast that Bendy crashed into a wall with a scream and fainted into a puddle of ink. Liam went to bed with a cookie because he got rid of Bendy. But Bendy is still haunting the house…

He ran to the sewers and yelled, “are you ok?”
He did not hear a thing. So, he jumped into the sewers and spotted the Chinese Killer Clown.
He ran after the killer clown and called the police.
“I’m chasing the Chinese Killer Clown under the sewers of 10th Main Street.”
“Ok, be there in two minutes.”

The Magical Fan
Once upon a time, Romen and Hector were at Jimmy’s house. In the dark, deep woods. It was thundering out.
They were watching TV when Jimmy said, “I have to go to the bathroom,” so Jimmy walked up the stairs.
The storm made it humid and hot, so that made Hector and Romen hot. Jimmy had a fan going in the kitchen. So Romen and hector went into the kitchen. They flipped the light switch. The lights did not turn on. Romen grabbed a flashlight and turned it on.
Then they saw the fan. They thought it was already on. They walked to turn it on. All of a sudden, the fan turned on.
“What just happened,” said Romen.
“I don’t know,” said Hector. “We’ll just sit here.”
Then the fan turned off. They both loudly screamed.
Jimmy came running down the stairs and said, “what happened?”
“The fan keeps turning on and off,” they both said, out of breath. “See?”
“Unplug the fan,” Romen said.
So Jimmy unplugged the fan. They looked out the window. It was raining too hard for Romen and Hector to go home, so they stayed at Jimmy’s house. Then they went to bed. When they got up, they went outside. They looked at the satellite and it was damaged.
Then they said, “oh, that’s why the fan kept turning on and off, because lighting kept hitting it.”
Then they went inside and called the cable company to fix the satellite, so they could watch TV.
They went inside and made breakfast. I hope you don’t get scared like they did!
Long before you were even alive, two girls at midnight went into the woods. But they felt like some person was watching them, but the girls thought it was their moms.
But it was a killer clown.
But they did not know that it was a clown. So, they turned around. It was a clown. The clown grabbed the two girls and the girls were never, ever seen again.
The Attack of the Legendary Wolves
Once upon a time, on a Halloween night, Sam, Uncle Steve and I were walking in the dark spooky woods. All of a sudden, we heard evil howling in the haunted woods. Then we saw two creepy dark, black shadows in the distance. The dark shadows appeared into the light. They were the legendary wolves.
One of them clawed at my face and chest. Then the other wolf attacked Sam and Uncle Steve. The wolf grabbed my leg and whipped me around. Then the other wolf clawed at Sam and Uncle Steve.
Quickly, Uncle Steve hit it with his rifle, causing it to run away! I was still being whipped around! At last, Uncle Steve hit that wolf, causing it to run far away! Never to be seen again. Everyone was so relieved that I was ok!
The end, or is it?
Lost at Sea
One day, long ago, a little girl and her mom went on a boat ride. They were on the boat for hours. Finally, the boat came to a stop. They went by the captain. He was not there. All the power was off.
“The boat broke down!” yelled the mom. She tried to contact the coast guard and no answer.
All of a sudden, they saw a ghost. It grabbed the mom and threw her into a little boat. The little girl tried to contact the coast guard again, but no answer.
The ghost found the little girl, threw her into a little boat and off to sea she went. She found her mom, but the coast guard never found her or her mom.

Welcome to Clown Town
Once upon a time, in a town called Ace Town, there was a boy named Cameron. He was a normal 10-year-old b oy. He had two friends, Lauren and Shawn. Shawn was the oldest, but he still had one fear, clowns.
Lauren, on the other side, was a sweet girl. She was also the same age as Cameron. One day, Shawn wanted to show Lauren, who he has a crush on, that he was the coolest.
So, he told Lauren to say truth or dare. So, Lauren said “truth or dare.”
“DARE!” Shawn shouted. “Ok,” said Lauren, “I dare you to go in the creepy alleyway that people say is haunted.”
“Um…um…um… ok, I’ll do it,” said Shawn. So, Shawn walked slowly to the alleyway.
“Oh boy, Lauren. You really think he’ll do it?” said Cameron.
“Of course not,” said Lauren. “Don’t be serious.”
Shawn was sweating as it got darker in the alleyway. Shawn heard a voice that sounded girlish.
“Who said that?” said Shawn.
“NO, I KNOW THAT’S YOU, LAUREN,” said Shawn.
“COME CLOSER, SHAWN!!!”
Then Shawn saw a red mallet with red and black hearts and diamonds. He touched it, then KABOOM!
“Uh-oh,” said Lauren.
“Shawn’s in there,” said Cameron.
Then they both heard a scream that sounded like Shawn’s.
“AHHHHH HELP ME, SOMEONE!”
Lauren and Cameron ran to Cameron’s house and Shawn was never seen again. He didn’t even get a funeral.
A few years later, Cameron and Lauren were both now 15, and still didn’t know how Shawn died or even if he did die. So Lauren and Cameron started to think, how or when will we know when we will get the answer.
“COME CLOSER, COME CLOSER, COME CLOSER, KABOOM!”
“What was that?”
A few years later, Cameron moved to Washington D.C., so Lauren was alone.
One day, Cameron got a call from Lauren’ mom, who said “She’s gone,” in a crying voice. Cameron ran to his mom and said “We have to go back to Ace Town.”
Lauren’s funeral came to Ace Town, and Cameron heard a voice that said “come closer,” and Cameron was pulled away from the people and his arm was ripped clean off. Then he was tugged to the alley and never seen again.
This killer was on Fox News and they said the killer was a girl clown, kind of like Harley Quinn. The clown wasn’t in Ace Town anymore, but is still in the USA Ha HaHa!
The Road Trip Gone Wrong
One day, Cindey and her family members Jet and Ginger, who are twins, Miny, her baby sister, and her mom and dad went on a road trip. Soon, they were lost in a corn field.
“When are we going to be there?” said Jet.
“We’re lost, stupid,” said Cindey.
“Kids!” said Dad.
“We will find our way back,” said Mom.
They kept driving.
“Whoa! Look at that scarecrow!” said Ginger.
The wind blew and Cindey got the shivers.
“I have a bad feeling about that scarecrow,” said Cindey.
“Are you scared?” Ginger said in a baby voice. Cindey rolled her eyes. A few minutes later, Cindey saw something rustling through the cornstalks.
“What as that?” Cindey said with a shiver.
“Maybe it’s someone coming to help us. You kids stay here. We will be right back,” said Mom. They got out of the car and disappeared into the corn field. They rolled down the window.
“Mom? Dad? They’re gone!” Cindey saw something that looked like Dad run across the car, except it had a straw hat.
“Did you see that?” said Cindy. “Did you see that thing run across that path?”
“Oooohh. So scary.” said Jet.
“Maybe it’s the scarecrow,” Ginger said.
“Stop!” said Cindey. There was silence for five seconds. “That’s probably what took Mom and Dad!” Cindey shrieked.
“They’re probably just playing hide and seek,” said Jet and Ginger. They went out of the car and soon disappeared. AAAAHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!
“Ginger? Jet? Oh no, they took the baby.” She was all by herself. At least, she thinks she is!
A day later, she was outside trying to make a fire with sticks, but it didn’t work out. An hour later, Cindey heard some laughing and not the good kind. She felt warm air on her neck. She turned around slowly and there she saw six scarecrows!
“Mom, Dad, Jett, Ginger?” and one very little scarecrow, “Miny?”
Cindey got up and ran. “Please don’t turn me into a scarecrow.” She tripped and fell. The scarecrows came closer and there was a loud scream.
A year later, a little girl that was 11 years old named Madi went into the corn field to explore. “Ooh, what nice scarecrows.” She went closer to the scarecrow. The scarecrow grabbed her. She was never seen again.
It was an ordinary night, and all of the kids were in their beds sleeping. Owen got up at 12 a.m. to go to the bathroom. Then he felt a tap tap on his leg. He was so scared he screamed!
Autumn woke up and knocked on the bathroom door. “Who’s there?” he said with a q-q-quiver.
“It’s me, your little sister.”
“Why are you up?”
“I heard you scream. And are you taking a bath?”
“No, why would you say that?”
“Because I heard the water running.”
Owen got up and felt the water, it was slimy. Owen pulled his pants up and ran out crying.
‘Is something wrong?”
“The water was slimy.” “Let’s go ask Mom what you are scared about.”
We went into mom’s and dad’s room. We asked mom and she told us about the ghost. Mom said they were friendly and only roam around at night. Then we went back to bed.
Before we went to sleep, we laughed out heads off. Litterally, our heads came off.
Bye bye, ha haha.
That’s the end.
Isabella D. Gottlieb
Once upon a time, four girls named Lacy, Jenny, Sam and Lili, and a dog named Norman, sat around a campfire in the woods at Cara Park Campground. The girls (and dog!) are having a good time telling scary stories, ghost in the graveyard, and more!
“Sam, tell us another scary story, please!” Said Lacy.
“Yeah Sam, you’re the best at telling stories!” said Lili.
“Yeah!” said Jenny.
“Woof! Woof!” agreed Norman.
“Ok, ok! I’ll tell you something I heard over the news. A wolf in this very campground has been roaming around, and I heard that the people scream and the wolf howls and the people disappear! I think the wolf eats them!”
“I’m tired, I need to go to bed,” said Jenny sleepily.
“Ok, night then,” said Sam.
“Night,” said Lacy.
“Night,” said Lili.
“Woof,” said Norman.
“Night guys, see you tomorrow!” said Jenny, even more sleepily. She started walking through the woods to their campsite.
“Ahhh!” screamed Jenny. Her friends came to her. She was not there.
“Maybe she ran back to the campsite?” suggested Lacy.
“Yeah,” they all agreed. So when they got there they checked all their tents, but she wasn’t there. So they went to the woods to look for her.
“Hey, do you think the wolf got her?” asked Lili.
“Of course not! That story is fake! I made it up!” said Sam, not turning to Lili.
“I got an idea!” said Lacy.
“What is it?” asked the girls.
“We should split up!” said Lacy.
“Good idea!” said Lili and Sam. So they went separate ways.
“Ahhh!” screams Lili. The girls rush over to her, but she was not there.
“Are you sure y-y-you made that story up, Sam?” asked Lacy.
“I’m sure of it! I made that up! I promise!” said Sam, who was starting to panic.
“Let’s go to bed, and maybe they’ll come back.” said Lacy.
“Ok, let’s go to bed. I hope they come back,” said Sam.
So they walked to their tents. “Night!” they said together.
As soon as Lacy went into her tent, “Awooooo!”
“Ahhhh! Lacy!” screamed Sam. She ran to Lacy’s tent, but she wasn’t there. So Sam ran back to her tent and hid in the pillows and rocked back and forth, back and forth, back and ofrth, chanting “it’s not real, it’s not real, it’s just made up!”
“Awooooo!” the wolf was coming over. Soon, Sam saw two yellow eyes coming closer and…
“Norman!” said Sam with her hands still shaking.
“Oh Norman! I’m so scared. Where are Lacy, Lili and Jenny?” said Sam.
“Who’s there? Come out! I mean it!”
“Arf, Arf!” growled Norman.
“Ahh!” screamed Sam.
“Pranked you!” screamed the other girls.
“Guys! Not funny!” said Sam. So the girls explained how they did it. After that night, they had the best camp trip ever.

The day started like any old day in Maple Arrow. I went to school. All the
adults went to work. But forget what I said about going to school because we
didn’t go! Our bus stopped working on the Deadly Road! Everyone who stepped
on this road never came back! We all started screaming “We’re going to die!”
“Calm down kids” said Mr. Te Tot, the bus driver.
“We will be fine” I said. I knew we wouldn’t be fine. The bus driver had us
exit the bus. We were terrified! The bus driver said we should look for shelter. We
headed into the wicked woods!
When we entered BOOM! The bus blew up! A lot of blobby vampires were
looking at us from the woods from the other side of the road.
“Ahaaaa!” I screamed. We all ran into the woods!
Then they were back! They were circling around us saying “Mmmm…!
Tasty!” They were trying to eat us! They captured us and took us to their secret
