The Deadly Book

2/2/2017

 

It was a dark dreary night, I waited for the sound of thunder. But all I heard was the soft “Pit, pat, pit, pat,” on my window. Then I heard it. The last sound I heard until everything turned to darkness.

I waited for the alarm clock to go off. It was another gloomy day. I decided that since I had nothing to do, I would got to the library to read and study for my history quiz. So off I went to the library. When I got there, I went straight to the history section. I was looking around when I came across an odd book. It was scaly like a snake and had no title. I decided to go ask Mr. Linden, the librarian, what the book was. “Do not check out that book,” Mr. Linden warned. But I didn't listen, I felt like I had to read the book. Later that night, I started to read the book. It was a weird coincidence that the girl in the book was named Alex, just like me! I decided I would finish the book tomorrow.

“Ding, ding, ding” rang the alarm clock. “Oh, that stupid alarm!” I got up and got myself some pop tarts for breakfast. But suddenly I heard a knock on the door. It sounded more like a wood pecker, but I decided to check just in case. I opened the door, and to my surprise no one was there. I looked around to see if anyone was there but I couldn't find anyone. When I turned around to go back inside, I found a note nailed to my door, it said: YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED. I could not be sure but it looked like it was written in blood. I shivered. It was cold. As I went back inside I wondered, was it talking about the book, or is someone just trying to scare me? I shut the door, then I went upstairs to my bedroom to read more from the mysterious book.

I awoke to screaming. I thought it was from my crazy next door neighbor, but as I listened closer, I realized that it was me screaming. As I looked around, I realized why I was screaming. In my bed there were a bunch of vines.

 

As I read more and more from the book, I began to believe it was my future. Before I knew it, it was time to get ready for bed. I changed into my pajamas and got cozy in bed. I HAD to finish the book. Even though I am a little scared, it cold not be my future. It is just a book. As I started to read, it came to life in my mind.

This is what the book said: ALEX LAYS IN HER BED AS SHE READS FROM A BOOK. SHE HEARS THE SOFT "PIT, PAT, PIT, PAT," ON HER WINDOW. SHE WAITS FOR THE SOUND OF THUNDER. BUT NEVER HEARD IT UNTIL THE LIGHTS WENT OUT AND SHE DRIFTED INTO HER LIFE LONG SLEEP. THE END...

 

 

That was odd. I finally finished the book. It is still raining but I have not heard any thunder. I can only hear the soft “Pit, pat, pit, pat,” on my window. I yawned as I started to turn out the light, then something stopped me. The Earth went black, darkness filled my eyes, there was no sound. Everything was gone.
