Chapter 1:


Tracy Morris was at her locker putting her books away.

When her best friend Emily Reed walked up from behind her and asked

“So what time do I pick you up tonight?”

“Ouch!” Damn it Em!”

You just scared the hell out of me!” Tracy cried out rubbing her finger

“Sorry, are you okay?” Emily asked trying not to laugh

“Oh, yah sure, thanks, and by the way it’s a new habit of mines.”

 To smash my finger inside my locker before going to class”

 I strongly suggest that you try it,” Tracy smirked

“Wow! Was that humor?”

 So what time do I pick you up?” Emily repeated

“Pick me up for what?” Tracy frowned

“What do you mean for what?”

“Don’t tell me that you forgot that tonight was the big Halloween party up at Crystal Lake?”

“You’re going right?”  Emily frowned back

“Oh that, sorry but I’ve to babysit--,” Tracy began


 Please tell me that you’re kidding?” if you don’t go, you know that slut Mandy

will be all over Dave,” Emily interrupted.

“And don’t give me that bull about

having to baby sit.

 “Oh wait!” don’t tell me you of all people are scared of

Crystal Lake?” She added in a spooky tone of voice.


Tracy suddenly gasped

“Oh my god!” You just uncovered my darkest secret!”

“Yes Emily, I’m terrified of Crystal Lake, and clowns!”

 give me a serious break, I just don’t feel like going that’s all,” 

“Oh, come on Trac, I swear if you don’t go I’ll never talk to you ever again!”

 Emily pouted

“Okay, okay you win I’ll go!” to the stupid party, happy now?” Tracy sighed

“Very, now hurry up!” We’re going to be late for home room,” Emily smiled


Chapter 2:

Later that night Tracy was adding the final touches to her witch’s costume.

When she heard Emily honk, she ran downstairs and yelled out

“Mom, I’m leaving!”

“Okay, have a good time and be home by one!”

 Her mother yelled out from the kitchen


“Hey!” Look what I got!” Emily smiled once Tracy got inside her car

Rolling her eye, she asked Emily

“Cute, how old are you again?” while staring at the glory hand that when Emily pressed a

button it slowly moved back and forth


And as they drove off for the party Tracy had a funny feeling in the pit of her stomach.

That this would be the last Halloween, that they’d ever spent together

“I hope that I’m wrong,” She thought to herself staring out the window.

 While listening to Emily go on and on about who was going to be there with who


Thirty minutes later Emily opened her car door.

 She was about to get out when she noticed that Tracy, hadn’t moved.

She was just sitting there staring at the lake

“Umm Trac, are you getting out or are you just planning to sit in the car.”

 Just staring at the place all night?”


Tracy was about to answer her when someone suddenly jumped in front of the car.

 And banged on the hood


Tracy got out of the car and yelled

“That wasn’t funny Dave!” You scared me half to death!” 

“Now Tracy, where’s your Halloween spirit?”

This whole night is about getting scared!” Dave laughed

before he grabbed her hand and walked with her towards the large tented area


Inside the tent the only lights that were on.

 Were the ones coming out of the jack o lantern that were placed in every corner

  And a few Christmas lights hanging from the beams.


Tracy started to relax as a person dressed as Donald duck walked over to Dave.

 And tried to give him a big duck kiss

“Maybe coming here tonight wasn’t such a bad idea, after all,”

She thought to herself


 Chapter 3:

A couple minutes later a piece of paper was being passed around.

 So everyone could write down who they thought should win.

The best costume prize

After writing down her vote Tracy whispered over to Emily, who was dressed as tinkle bell

“Hey, Who’s that over by the punch bowl?”

And before Emily could answer her back. Cherry Huston interrupted

“May I please have everyone’s attention?”

 The results for best costumes are in, but before I tell you who won.”

 I’d like for you to follow us down by the lake, to see an eerie show.” That the spirits of Crystal Lake have put together,”


And as everyone started to head out for the lake, Tracy started to get that funny feeling again. She was about to ask Dave, if they could leave. When Emily cried out


 “Hey!” Hurry up you two!”


“You go Em, we’ll wait for you here,” Tracy answered her

“Huh?” What do you mean we’ll wait for her here?” Dave frowned

“I don’t know about you but I’m going to join the others,”

And before Tracy could respond he took off to catch up with the rest of the group


“Okay Tracy, what’s up with you?” Emily asked taking a seat next to her

 “I can’t tell you,” Tracy sobbed

“Yes, you can I promise that I won’t tell anybody, it’ll might even help you

feel better if you do,” Emily answered her.

 Tracy took a deep breath and began

“Okay, remember when we were in grad school

 and my cousin Billy, took us trick or treating?”


“Well, when we dropped you off I don’t remember why, but instead of going back

to my house,”

We ended back here I remember that I was so scared that I started crying,”

“And Billy’s friend kept telling him to keep me quite.

Or the madman that lives out here will come out and eat me,”

“Wow! What a jerk!” Emily frowned. Tracy nodded then continued


“When we got out of the car we headed towards the lake.

When this crazed old man dressed in rags,”

 Jumped out from one of the bushes and started running after us,

yelling at the top of his lungs, for us to get out of his house

I remember that one of Billy’s friends, sneaked up from behind the old man,”

 And wrestled the ax away from him, he kept hitting

him with it over and over again,”

“Oh my god!” Emily cried out

“I could’ve sworn that he killed him but I was never sure.

 Cause Billy, just grabbed my hand and ran we ran back to the car,”

 When we got inside the car his friend grabbed my arm and yelled in my face,”

“That if I ever told anyone what happened that the same thing would happen to me!”

“Now do you see why I didn’t want to come out here,” Tracy sobbed

“Oh Tracy, I’m so sorry, come on we’re getting out of here right now!” Emily told her


Chapter 4:

They were getting ready to leave when a figure blocked their path and removed its mask. Showing that it was Tracy’s cousin Billy

Who had been listening to their whole conversation


“Billy!” what are you doing here?”

 Emily asked him in a surprised tone of voice.

But Billy just ignored her and walked to where Tracy was standing

“Tracy, I’m so sorry.

 I had no idea that you’ve been carry that fear of what happened all these years,”

 It was just some stupid prank that my friends wanted to pull on their girlfriends,”

“And wanted me to help them out with I had no choice to take you with me since your parents weren’t home,”

 Billy started explaining.

“Do you forgive me?”

“Forgive you?”

 you got some nerve how can you stand there and ask her to forgive you!”

 When you dragged her out here just to witness one of your idiot buddies, kill some poor old homeless man!”

 Emily yelled at him


“Oh, you were right about one thing he was old but homeless,” Never, he had a

family who cared and loved him very much” he just got confused once in a while


and liked to come out here,”

“Where no one would bother him that was until you and your stupid friends.”

 First, messed with his mind then left him alone to die like he was some piece of trash!”

 A voice from behind them yelled 


The three teens were shocked and confused to see Dave standing here just yelling at them 

“Dave, what…

“Shut up!” I’ve waited for a very long time for this night!”

He yelled over to Tracy


And as he walked closer towards them Emily screamed

“Oh, please excuse the way I look!” Dave laughed.

 He had changed out of his vampire costume

And was now dressed as some homeless bum,

he held up a bloody ax then smiled

“Looks familiar huh?” Tracy, it should it was my grandpa’s favorite ax,”

“Dave, what the hell is going on?” Where are the others?” Emily asked

“Relax tinkle bell, I’ll answer all your questions in a minute.

 But first I’ve to take care of some unfinished business,” Dave smirked


“Hey Billy!”


And before Billy could ask him what

Dave took out a gun from his back pocket and shot Billy, right in the chest.

 Emily screamed again before making a desperate dash to get away.

But she never made it Dave shot her in the back

“You know Trac,

 I never liked Tinkle Bell, I was more a Captain Hooks, kind of guy!”

he laughed


 Tracy was in a state of shock and thought to herself

“This can’t be happening,”

 “Dave, I’m really sorry about what happened to your grandfather,

 but that was a long time ago.”

 Getting revenge on us now isn’t going to bring him back,”

But her pleas for her life were useless Dave just shot her before she had a chance to finish

Chapter 5:

And even though there was no one really there

 Dave stilled heard the voice of his grandfather laughing in his head

“You know son, I never did like that girl, she always whined too much,”

Dave smiled and agreed as he jumped into the lake to wash himself off.

Then changed into his street cloths but before he left

He carefully placed the ax on top of unmarked grave

and whispered with a big smile on his face


“Happy Halloween grandpa!”
