Halloween Stories, pt. 1: 'Who's That?' by Lauren

What better time to start collecting stories written by children posted on their class websites than Halloween? Our inaguaral story comes to us courtesy of Mrs. Thonus's 3rd grade class. Read on...if you find out...

Who's That? by Lauren

LaurenOne night I got locked in my dark attic. I stepped on the last step and it creaked like a creepy growl from a spooky ghost in a scary basement. The light turned off. The wind was whistling like a goblin running. I felt the cold. It was as cold as a wet ice cube in a freezer touching my cheeks. The rain was dribbling like loud thunder in the sky. I could not see anything.

"What's that?" I saw a dark shadow. That's all I could see. It was just standing there. I got scared. Finally, someone opened the door and the lights turned on. All it was was my dad's soldier uniform. I ran down the stairs and got out.

The next night my dog and I were playing ball near Roger's Graveyard. The ball went in the graveyard and I saw someone. I could not see him or her clearly because it was so foggy. My dog started barking and then I turned around and said, "Be quiet!" I turned back and he or she was gone!

I went back to our house and told my mom and she said, "No, I don't believe you." I turned around and something was there. It had a bright yellow glow around it. It's eyes were red, as red as apples hanging from a tree. It was dark as a night like this. It was a dead soldier.

He said, "I'm lost and don't know where I am."

I said, "You're in my home. Where is yours?"

"I don't know," he said. Then my mom said, "Who are you talking to?"

I said, "I'm talking to him," pointing toward the soldier. Then I thought he might be my dad who died in World War II. I said, "Dad, is that you?"

Suddenly, I realized it was my dad who died in World War II! He said, "Emma, is that light for me?"

I said, "I don't know. I can't see it." He took two steps and was gone. I said, "Bye, Dad."

I was so happy to be able to say goodbye to my dad. I will remember that for the rest of my life and I will always love him no matter what.
