I was riding my bike through my hometown, when suddenly next to my house I saw strangers moving in next door. It was a younger couple with a son who looked about my age. I raced home to ask my parents if they knew who they were. My parents simply replied with "we do not know, 
however, we should get to know them."  So, my parents and I talked for awhile and we came up with an idea to invite them over that night. Later that night, I was lying in bed and I kept thinking about how great it would be to finally have a best friend around here. I live in a small town, and it's rare to see new faces.
Everyone knows everyone, but nobody to seem to know these people. I woke up to hearing loud but strange noises from my window. I looked outside at their house, but I didn't see anything so I assume it was nothing. I went on with my normal day. It was summer, so of course there was no school. On sunny days, like today.
I would get ready and go ride my bike to see if anyone was in town. If I saw nobody, then I would sneak off to my fort. My fort was located in the outskirts of town. Nobody but me knew where it was. It felt as my second home and I came here only when I felt alone. There was only one thing wrong with this trip. I didn't feel 
entirely alone. I felt as someone was watching me, or if someone was just standing right behind me. I looked around but found that I was the only one there. After a few hours of playing in my fort and building new things. Later that evening, I was riding home and there was a strong breeze. I know its just the wind, but
something that night felt really strange. I couldn't explain it, but I knew everything didn't feel right. However, when I got home and walked through the door I found the neighbors in the living room. They just stared and didn't say a word until my mom said, "Hello Johnny, go wash up dinner is about done". I ran up the
stairs without saying a word. I opened my door to change into some clean clothes and I found myself smiling because once in my life there is someone my age in my house. So, I changed and rushed back downstairs to go talk to my hopefully new friend. When I got down stairs, they were all at the table with empty plates in 
front of them. I joined them and waited for my parents. My parents brought in some steak off the grilled and sat down. My mom was the first one to say something but her voice sounded nervous. She said,"hello Mr. and Mrs. Taylor's. It's so finally glad to meet some new faces." The woman chuckled then began to
say," My name is Anne and my husband name is Ronald, and this here is Ryan. He's very shy, but I think the boys will be great friends!" I interrupted with "hey Ryan, tomorrow you want to play and ride bikes?" Ryan looked up, and just nodded "yes". I thought maybe he won't be that shy tomorrow. After dinner was
over, I asked mom "is it okay for me and Ryan to play tommorow?" She responded with a simple yes. 
 
The next day about 10 a.m. I go to Ryan's house. He answers the door and walks outside and says "are you sure you want to hangout?" I gave him a confused look but came back with a eagarly "yes!" He said," follow me I know a cool spot my friend told me about." I didn't ask who his friend
was, I just went with it. I was following him on his bike and we headed towards the outskirts of town. There was no way he knew where my fort was, I mean nobody knew where it was, right? After another ten minutes, we arrived at my fort. I felt cold chills around my body and asked angrily, "how did you know
about my fort!" He stared at me and didn't say a word for a minute, then replied with "I didn't know it was yours, my friend told me nobody has claimed this area." Still mad, I said, "Your friend isn't real, he's all in your head." I asked again but louder this time, "How did you know about this place." Again, he looks at
me and he lifts his hand and points at a tree behind me. I turn around and look and I couldn't believe my eyes. I saw a tree with the writing, "Ryan's new fort." I looked back at him and he said, "see I told you. My friend does exist." I remember back yesterday as I felt like I was being watched and maybe Ryan
followed me. But how would he have gotten to my house before me? I then went inside my fort and everything was damaged. I was so mad, I pushed Ryan down into mud, and we rolled around. Suddenly, we here this loud bang from inside the fort. I run in there and I see a sign that says "Johnny, you better not
hurt Ryan or I'll hurt your family then you." I look at Ryan and yell at him "who did you bring with you that is doing this!" He said "I didn't bring anyone, he was already here." I said, "who? Your friend?" He softly said "yes, but he just left." I got so scared for my family, I pushed Ryan down and looked for my bike but
couldn't find it. So, I started to run home. The breeze I felt yesterday was here again, however it was also raining. It's pitch dark, but I'm finally home. I see the lgihts on which is a good sign but I saw my bike in the front yard. I pushed open the front door, and I see the Taylor's sitting in the livingroom. They all turned to me.
Only Anne talked "So did you and Ryan and his friend have a fun day?" I quickly replied with "Where are my parents?" She said "Oh them? Don't worry, Ryan's friend said he had a surprise for them." I ran outside and jumped on my bike and peddled all the way to my fort to find my parents tied up inside. Their mouths
were taped and they couldn't talk. I start to rip off their tape, but they were speechless and their eyes were opened wide. I slowly look behind me, and I finally met.. Ryan's friend. He was huge, he had dark eyes, a evil smile, big hands, and scars all over him. He wore a bag on his head which revealed his eyes and
smile. He had a knife in his hand and smiled at me. He said with his dark, deep, evil voice "I told you, this is Ryan's new fort." He grabbed me and tied me up with tape on my mouth and retaped my parents mouths. Sitting there in my fort, Ryan walks in. His friend hands him the knife, and wispers in his ear. Ryan walks
up to my dad first. He rips the tape off to hear my dad screams then stabs him in the throat until the knife was completely through him. He pulled it out, and his friend let the blood on the knife drip into his mouth. Ryan then smiles at my mom, pointing the knife and her stomach. He cuts her enough to where she starts
swirming and screaming. He slowly cuts her ankles and wrists, until finally he aims for the heart and she stopped moving. I sat their terrified knowing I was next and needed to do something. But I couldn't move. I sat there and watched Ryan cut me all over. He cut my face, my stomach, my legs, my arms. He cut me deep
enough to make scars. Then his parents walked in with a drink. They ripped the tape off and forced it down my throat. Well that's the last thing I remember. I woke up, in the woods. I ran to my old house, and went upstairs to the bathroom. I looked in the mirror. I had a bag on my head. I had scars everywhere. I had
dark eyes. I had a strange smile. I guess my wish came true. I finally got my best friend, and it's now Ryan.
