It was maybe the “End” of September, And everyone was putting up their Halloween decorations and thinking of scary stories to tell others during campfires...and something happened to me that I didn’t think was going to happen.

 

“So where are we going today mom?”

“I don’t know, I haven’t thought about it yet”

“Can you tell me a ghost story?”

“Do you think you’re ready for one of those?”

“YES, Tell me, I want to hear a ghost story”

“Okay which one do you wanna hear the one with the person at school, or the one with the woman running through the woods?”

“The person from school?”

“Yeah”

“Okay I want to hear that one mom!”

“Okay so this is how it starts….there was a boy your age, waking up from a deep sleep. He thought today was going to be perfect, his girlfriend was going to walk to the store with him, he was going to take her home, and have dinner with her parents then go back to school for a concert the band was having...but it didn’t happen the way he wanted it to.  It started when he got in 3rd period….the Principal came on the intercom saying they were under lockdown. Everyone screaming is this a drill? Are we going to die?...then someone started walking up the stairs to where his class was scratching his knife across the wall making the worst screeching noise anyone has ever heard. Then when he got to the door he knocked softly saying “let me in or i’ll come through the window.”“NO,” shouted the teacher as the boy cowered in fear in the corner where his desk was. “Everyone in the closet where we can be safe,” said the teacher locking the other door to the class.“LET ME IN OR I’M BUSTING THIS F***ING DOOR DOWN”

Everything was quiet for a short time after we heard him stop yelling until….he Busted the door down and said “Where is he.” Scared for his life the boy didn’t know what he wanted him for...did I do something? He thought to himself.  

“Mom did the boy do anything?”

“Do you want me to tell you this or not?”

“Yeah…”

“Okay where were we...oh yeah. The boy in the closet didn’t know what was going on he was so scared he started to panic and his teacher and classmates knew he could have a panic attack at any moment. What do we do? they said quietly. The teacher must have got an idea because she started to unlock the door but then….the knife came through the wooden door and wounded her!

She screamed in pain as the knife slowly started going up and down. When he started to panic the man kicked the door open and said kid you're coming with me.

“but why? Did I do something” the boy asked the man.

“no its what you're going to do” the man said sounding a little scared.  As she laid there bleeding out on the floor.They heard footsteps getting further away and then one of his classmates spoke up and said I think we are safe for now let’s go ahead and…

“I Told you I was going to break the F***ing door down now where the H*ll is he?”

The guy saw the boy and thought this was too easy, why was he in the open didn’t the old man say this was the destruction of this school?

“Maybe he’s just a stupid little kid, nobody nobody knows what he’s capable of...not yet anyways”

 

“Mom, what did the old man say about the boy? And didn’t we go see a fortune teller and you didn’t want me to see what he was looking at and hear what he was saying?”

“Yes, but soon you will know why I didn’t want you to see your fortune.”

“But why not? Is it bad?”

“no , I just don’t want you to know what life is going to be like when you get older….that reminds me happy birthday son!”

“Thanks mom, finish the story was it close to over?”

“Nope”

 

Standing face to face with the strange man that stabbed his favorite teacher. The scared boy asked why am I here? Why do you want me? What did I ever do?

“It’s not what you did, It’s what you’re going to do”

“What am I going to do?” said the little boy, scared that he messed up something.

“I can’t tell you that’s why I have to get rid of you...So what’ll it be are you going to run to save yourself or are you just going to let me kill you?”

“Say if I run how far could I go before you come after me”

“To the bottom of the stairs and you better be fast, I’ll give you 10 seconds.”

1….Running out of the closet

2….Running down the stairs

3….Running to the principal's office walking in and seeing her...dead

4….Running to the gym so I could hide under the bleachers

5….sitting there waiting

6….thinking to myself “what if I leave the school and run to the store, could he get me there?”

7….getting out from under the bleachers I run to the secret attic that the school has above the gym.

8….climbing the ladder behind the curtains…”what is up here?”

9….the man slowly walking to the classmates...killing them with a swift slice of the knife like what he did to kill the teacher. Then he walked back to the door and took his gun out of his pocket…

10...the man shot a bullet into the air and the little boy heard it, scared for his life he took out his phone’s flashlight and he saw a box laying on the ground….”what’s in here?”

He slowly opened the box to find a handgun and a ton of ammunition that he could use.

Being under a lot of stress with his girlfriend breaking up with him that morning he was depressed and wanted to commit suicide when he noticed that the gun had writing on the side of it saying...The thought that kills… “why does it say this?”

The man looking through every classroom on the main level of the school, killing anyone who gets in his way.

“I’m screwed everything I’ve ever done was to protect the people I love” he said not knowing that what he does later saves everyone.

The man walked to the gym and see’s the storage room open and he slowly walks over…

“Come here kid I’m going to make it quick...everything will be alright”

Hearing him walk to where the ladder was, scared out of his mind his thoughts were racing and he started to say “Alright i’ll come down and you can take me in the middle of the gym”

“Good...I knew you would come to your senses”

Climbing down the ladder walking to the middle of the gym sitting on his knees, with his hands behind his back. “If you’re going to kill me hurry up and get it over with.”

“Okay, kid don’t rush me” the man reaching for his gun thinking when he kills this kid...how will I get away when someone finally calls the cops on him when they hear shooting. As the man pointed his gun the little boy with his mind racing thought if I wound him I could get away and hopefully call the cops.

“Say goodbye kid, everything is all going to end soon for you”

Finger on the trigger the boy with one quick movement pulls the gun out and shoots him in the knee...well he thought it was the knee, instead he shot him in the stomach.

The man shouted in pain holding his stomach. “I’m going to kill you slowly now you little SHIT”

Making a run for it the boy runs to the back of the school where he thinks he would be safe but the man was hot on his trail. Turning back shooting the man again this time he killed him not knowing where he shot but he kept running. Getting to the stairs in the back of the school he looked outside and he saw a dozen cops parked outside, “come out with your hands up…” they called for the boy to come out so they could take him home. “Either you come out or we are going to come in there to kill you.”

Seriously scared for his life he said...the man was a spy...OMG I killed a Spy and now the cops are going to kill me...what do I do? Do I stay here or should I run? Where would I go if I do run?The gun fell on the floor and it had writing on the other side of it that said…...One in the chamber could end it all...alright why is it telling me this?

Looking at the window I saw the girl I love walk outside screaming

“WHAT THE HELL IS GOING ON?”

“Ma’am we are trying to get the boy inside he keeps running away from us”

“Are you talking about my boyfriend?”

The sight of her and the cops scared me because when she said boyfriend...I jumped at the the sound of his gun shooting her.

“NOOOOOO…..I have nothing left my mom left on my birthday yesterday, my dad never has anything to do with me, everyone in my life is going away or dying”

Thinking to himself this is it….the gun is the code….The thought that kills...One in the chamber could end it all...that’ the key. Thinking nothing is more than the man behind the thoughts… “should I end it? Would it end it? Saying quietly to himself still heartbroken that his ex girlfriend got shot.

 

“Mom why is this story so long?”

“Do you want me to stop?”

“No, it’s getting good”

 

The boy stood there thinking….am I what’s going to save this place or destroy it?

Then he shot himself….

 

“What was the boy’s name mom?”

“Seth”

“But that’s my name”

“Yeah I know seth”

“Mom why’d he kill himself if he could save the school?”

“Because shooting himself was how he was going to save the school”

“Oh so you’re saying if he didn’t shoot himself the school was to be destroyed?”

“Exactly, well son have a good birthday let me take you home then I’m going to the store to buy groceries for the week.”

“Okay mom, why couldn’t I come with you?”

“It seems it’ll be better if you were home”

“Okay mom I’ll stay home”

 

The Next Day….

 

Waking up that morning wasn’t the best thing for seth, he couldn’t find his mother when she never came home last night after telling him that story.

 

“Mom, are you home?....Maybe if I call her cell phone maybe she would answer.”

Dialing the numbers was easy he just clicked speed dial and he called her…..ring….ring….ring….”hey this is Ashley Knight please leave a message at the beep and I’ll call you back once I have time.”

“Well maybe she will be here when I come back from school later” he thought to himself.

 

Later that morning

 

After getting off the bus with his girlfriend she has some horrible news to tell him.

 

“Seth, my grandma is in the hospital and she wants me to see her later...do you wanna go with me?”

“Sure, then later can we go to the movies?”

“Seth is that all you think about hanging out with me and never letting me spend time with my family?”

“No Emily that’s not all I think about I just thought…”

“Thought what I would forget that my grandma hates you for making me skip her birthday?....WE ARE OVER!”

 

Crying in first and second period confused and ashamed of what has happened he goes to third period where everything changes in minutes….maybe even seconds.

 

It starts as Seth walks into class,

Mrs G. walks over “seth did you do your homework?”

“No, I’m sorry I’ve been going through a lot right now I couldn’t finish it with my mom leaving and so far I have no clue if she’s coming back today or not.”

“Alright but don’t let that be a normal excuse to not finish work Seth”

“It won’t be Mrs. G”

 

That’s how the day normally goes slow third period and depressing first and second period. Until the principal came over the intercom

 

“Kids we are under lockdown”

 

People were screaming are we going to die?

 

“No you idiots, it’s just someone walking around outside. It’s probably another homeless man looking for food and a place to sleep.”

 

Scared and confused seth unfortunately was the only one who heard footsteps walking up the stairs…

 

“Someone’s here….SOMEONE IS HERE” Seth shouted as his mom’s story she told has started to come true.

“Mrs G. we have to get out of here, I know i’m about to sound crazy but there is someone here and he’s trying to kill me!”

“Oh seth, how do you know that?”

“This is going to sound crazy but...I asked my mom to tell me a scary story and so far everything that she has told me has come true I didn’t think she was telling the truth I thought she was making the story up as she was going down the road.”

 

That’s when Mrs G. heard the scratches of the knife….sssssss sssssss...getting closer and closer to the door everyone started to panic…

 

“Mrs G. lock the door before he gets in”

“Ok seth, everyone listen to seth his mom told him a story and it’s coming true”

“Yeah right loser like we’d listen to you”

 

That’s when he knocked on the door….”let me in, I just want to kill a kid”

“No”shouted Mrs G.

“Oh come on I wouldn’t kill him here, more the less some dark underpass”

“No, you’re not coming in”

 

Mrs G. then locked the doors to the room front back...even the windows…

“Everyone get in the closet”

“Okay” said the class pushing and shoving trying to get away to the closet.

Like I said let me in”

“No you’re not coming in”

“LET ME IN OR I”M BUSTING THIS F*****ING DOOR DOWN”

 

Scared and confused on why this is happening the class started to panic

“Are we going to die?” said the most thoughtful teen in the class.

“No not any of you are going to die” I said thinking what about Mrs G. she’s the first one to die I think?

“Alright I’ll bust the door down to get to him”

 

Smash…

 

Footsteps getting closer and closer…..

 

Knock….knock...on the closet door….

 

Then Mrs G. screaming….the knife it’s through here….

 

“No, guys…. listen to….. Seth he knows….. What’s going….to...happen….”

“Okay” the class said in fear,

“But how do we stop him?”

“You don’t have to….I do” I said sadly….

 

This unfortunately is where this book ends if you like

To conclude onto this story to find out if Seth stops

The guy or not….stay tuned for the next book…

“Nope”

 

Standing face to face with the strange man that stabbed his favorite teacher. The scared boy asked why am I here? Why do you want me? What did I ever do?

“It’s not what you did, It’s what you’re going to do”

“What am I going to do?” said the little boy, scared that he messed up something.

“I can’t tell you that’s why I have to get rid of you...So what’ll it be are you going to run to save yourself or are you just going to let me kill you?”

“Say if I run how far could I go before you come after me”

“To the bottom of the stairs and you better be fast, I’ll give you 10 seconds.”

1….Running out of the closet

2….Running down the stairs

3….Running to the principal's office walking in and seeing her...dead

4….Running to the gym so I could hide under the bleachers

5….sitting there waiting

6….thinking to myself “what if I leave the school and run to the store, could he get me there?”

7….getting out from under the bleachers I run to the secret attic that the school has above the gym.

8….climbing the ladder behind the curtains…”what is up here?”

9….the man slowly walking to the classmates...killing them with a swift slice of the knife like what he did to kill the teacher. Then he walked back to the door and took his gun out of his pocket…

10...the man shot a bullet into the air and the little boy heard it, scared for his life he took out his phone’s flashlight and he saw a box laying on the ground….”what’s in here?”

He slowly opened the box to find a handgun and a ton of ammunition that he could use.

Being under a lot of stress with his girlfriend breaking up with him that morning he was depressed and wanted to commit suicide when he noticed that the gun had writing on the side of it saying...The thought that kills… “why does it say this?”

The man looking through every classroom on the main level of the school, killing anyone who gets in his way.

“I’m screwed everything I’ve ever done was to protect the people I love” he said not knowing that what he does later saves everyone.

The man walked to the gym and see’s the storage room open and he slowly walks over…

“Come here kid I’m going to make it quick...everything will be alright”

Hearing him walk to where the ladder was, scared out of his mind his thoughts were racing and he started to say “Alright i’ll come down and you can take me in the middle of the gym”

“Good...I knew you would come to your senses”

Climbing down the ladder walking to the middle of the gym sitting on his knees, with his hands behind his back. “If you’re going to kill me hurry up and get it over with.”

“Okay, kid don’t rush me” the man reaching for his gun thinking when he kills this kid...how will I get away when someone finally calls the cops on him when they hear shooting. As the man pointed his gun the little boy with his mind racing thought if I wound him I could get away and hopefully call the cops.

“Say goodbye kid, everything is all going to end soon for you”

Finger on the trigger the boy with one quick movement pulls the gun out and shoots him in the knee...well he thought it was the knee, instead he shot him in the stomach.

The man shouted in pain holding his stomach. “I’m going to kill you slowly now you little SHIT”

Making a run for it the boy runs to the back of the school where he thinks he would be safe but the man was hot on his trail. Turning back shooting the man again this time he killed him not knowing where he shot but he kept running. Getting to the stairs in the back of the school he looked outside and he saw a dozen cops parked outside, “come out with your hands up…” they called for the boy to come out so they could take him home. “Either you come out or we are going to come in there to kill you.”

Seriously scared for his life he said...the man was a spy...OMG I killed a Spy and now the cops are going to kill me...what do I do? Do I stay here or should I run? Where would I go if I do run?The gun fell on the floor and it had writing on the other side of it that said…...One in the chamber could end it all...alright why is it telling me this?

Looking at the window I saw the girl I love walk outside screaming

“WHAT THE HELL IS GOING ON?”

“Ma’am we are trying to get the boy inside he keeps running away from us”

“Are you talking about my boyfriend?”

The sight of her and the cops scared me because when she said boyfriend...I jumped at the the sound of his gun shooting her.

“NOOOOOO…..I have nothing left my mom left on my birthday yesterday, my dad never has anything to do with me, everyone in my life is going away or dying”

Thinking to himself this is it….the gun is the code….The thought that kills...One in the chamber could end it all...that’ the key. Thinking nothing is more than the man behind the thoughts… “should I end it? Would it end it? Saying quietly to himself still heartbroken that his ex girlfriend got shot.

 

“Mom why is this story so long?”

“Do you want me to stop?”

“No, it’s getting good”

 

The boy stood there thinking….am I what’s going to save this place or destroy it?

Then he shot himself….

 

“What was the boy’s name mom?”

“Seth”

“But that’s my name”

“Yeah I know seth”

“Mom why’d he kill himself if he could save the school?”

“Because shooting himself was how he was going to save the school”

“Oh so you’re saying if he didn’t shoot himself the school was to be destroyed?”

“Exactly, well son have a good birthday let me take you home then I’m going to the store to buy groceries for the week.”

“Okay mom, why couldn’t I come with you?”

“It seems it’ll be better if you were home”

“Okay mom I’ll stay home”

 

The Next Day….

 

Waking up that morning wasn’t the best thing for seth, he couldn’t find his mother when she never came home last night after telling him that story.

 

“Mom, are you home?....Maybe if I call her cell phone maybe she would answer.”

Dialing the numbers was easy he just clicked speed dial and he called her…..ring….ring….ring….”hey this is Ashley Knight please leave a message at the beep and I’ll call you back once I have time.”

“Well maybe she will be here when I come back from school later” he thought to himself.

 

Later that morning

 

After getting off the bus with his girlfriend she has some horrible news to tell him.

 

“Seth, my grandma is in the hospital and she wants me to see her later...do you wanna go with me?”

“Sure, then later can we go to the movies?”

“Seth is that all you think about hanging out with me and never letting me spend time with my family?”

“No Emily that’s not all I think about I just thought…”

“Thought what I would forget that my grandma hates you for making me skip her birthday?....WE ARE OVER!”

 

Crying in first and second period confused and ashamed of what has happened he goes to third period where everything changes in minutes….maybe even seconds.

 

It starts as Seth walks into class,

Mrs G. walks over “seth did you do your homework?”

“No, I’m sorry I’ve been going through a lot right now I couldn’t finish it with my mom leaving and so far I have no clue if she’s coming back today or not.”

“Alright but don’t let that be a normal excuse to not finish work Seth”

“It won’t be Mrs. G”

 

That’s how the day normally goes slow third period and depressing first and second period. Until the principal came over the intercom

 

“Kids we are under lockdown”

 

People were screaming are we going to die?

 

“No you idiots, it’s just someone walking around outside. It’s probably another homeless man looking for food and a place to sleep.”

 

Scared and confused seth unfortunately was the only one who heard footsteps walking up the stairs…

 

“Someone’s here….SOMEONE IS HERE” Seth shouted as his mom’s story she told has started to come true.

“Mrs G. we have to get out of here, I know i’m about to sound crazy but there is someone here and he’s trying to kill me!”

“Oh seth, how do you know that?”

“This is going to sound crazy but...I asked my mom to tell me a scary story and so far everything that she has told me has come true I didn’t think she was telling the truth I thought she was making the story up as she was going down the road.”

 

That’s when Mrs G. heard the scratches of the knife….sssssss sssssss...getting closer and closer to the door everyone started to panic…

 

“Mrs G. lock the door before he gets in”

“Ok seth, everyone listen to seth his mom told him a story and it’s coming true”

“Yeah right loser like we’d listen to you”

 

That’s when he knocked on the door….”let me in, I just want to kill a kid”

“No”shouted Mrs G.

“Oh come on I wouldn’t kill him here, more the less some dark underpass”

“No, you’re not coming in”

 

Mrs G. then locked the doors to the room front back...even the windows…

“Everyone get in the closet”

“Okay” said the class pushing and shoving trying to get away to the closet.

Like I said let me in”

“No you’re not coming in”

“LET ME IN OR I”M BUSTING THIS F*****ING DOOR DOWN”

 

Scared and confused on why this is happening the class started to panic

“Are we going to die?” said the most thoughtful teen in the class.

“No not any of you are going to die” I said thinking what about Mrs G. she’s the first one to die I think?

“Alright I’ll bust the door down to get to him”

 

Smash…

 

Footsteps getting closer and closer…..

 

Knock….knock...on the closet door….

 

Then Mrs G. screaming….the knife it’s through here….

 

“No, guys…. listen to….. Seth he knows….. What’s going….to...happen….”

“Okay” the class said in fear,

“But how do we stop him?”

“You don’t have to….I do” I said sadly….

 

This unfortunately is where this book ends if you like

To conclude onto this story to find out if Seth stops

The guy or not….stay tuned for the next book…

The memory that survives

It was maybe the “End” of September, And everyone was putting up their Halloween decorations and thinking of scary stories to tell others during campfires...and something happened to me that I didn’t think was going to happen.

It was maybe the “End” of September, And everyone was putting up their Halloween decorations and thinking of scary stories to tell others during campfires...and something happened to me that I didn’t think was going to happen.

 

“So where are we going today mom?”

“I don’t know, I haven’t thought about it yet”

“Can you tell me a ghost story?”

“Do you think you’re ready for one of those?”

“YES, Tell me, I want to hear a ghost story”

“Okay which one do you wanna hear the one with the person at school, or the one with the woman running through the woods?”

“The person from school?”

“Yeah”

“Okay I want to hear that one mom!”

“Okay so this is how it starts….there was a boy your age, waking up from a deep sleep. He thought today was going to be perfect, his girlfriend was going to walk to the store with him, he was going to take her home, and have dinner with her parents then go back to school for a concert the band was having...but it didn’t happen the way he wanted it to.  It started when he got in 3rd period….the Principal came on the intercom saying they were under lockdown. Everyone screaming is this a drill? Are we going to die?...then someone started walking up the stairs to where his class was scratching his knife across the wall making the worst screeching noise anyone has ever heard. Then when he got to the door he knocked softly saying “let me in or i’ll come through the window.”“NO,” shouted the teacher as the boy cowered in fear in the corner where his desk was. “Everyone in the closet where we can be safe,” said the teacher locking the other door to the class.“LET ME IN OR I’M BUSTING THIS F***ING DOOR DOWN”

Everything was quiet for a short time after we heard him stop yelling until….he Busted the door down and said “Where is he.” Scared for his life the boy didn’t know what he wanted him for...did I do something? He thought to himself.  

“Mom did the boy do anything?”

“Do you want me to tell you this or not?”

“Yeah…”

“Okay where were we...oh yeah. The boy in the closet didn’t know what was going on he was so scared he started to panic and his teacher and classmates knew he could have a panic attack at any moment. What do we do? they said quietly. The teacher must have got an idea because she started to unlock the door but then….the knife came through the wooden door and wounded her!

She screamed in pain as the knife slowly started going up and down. When he started to panic the man kicked the door open and said kid you're coming with me.

“but why? Did I do something” the boy asked the man.

“no its what you're going to do” the man said sounding a little scared.  As she laid there bleeding out on the floor.They heard footsteps getting further away and then one of his classmates spoke up and said I think we are safe for now let’s go ahead and…

“I Told you I was going to break the F***ing door down now where the H*ll is he?”

The guy saw the boy and thought this was too easy, why was he in the open didn’t the old man say this was the destruction of this school?

“Maybe he’s just a stupid little kid, nobody nobody knows what he’s capable of...not yet anyways”

 

“Mom, what did the old man say about the boy? And didn’t we go see a fortune teller and you didn’t want me to see what he was looking at and hear what he was saying?”

“Yes, but soon you will know why I didn’t want you to see your fortune.”

“But why not? Is it bad?”

“no , I just don’t want you to know what life is going to be like when you get older….that reminds me happy birthday son!”

“Thanks mom, finish the story was it close to over?”

“Nope”

 

Standing face to face with the strange man that stabbed his favorite teacher. The scared boy asked why am I here? Why do you want me? What did I ever do?

“It’s not what you did, It’s what you’re going to do”

Being under a lot of stress with his girlfriend breaking up with him that morning he was depressed and wanted to commit suicide when he noticed that the gun had writing on the side of it saying...The thought that kills… “why does it say this?”

Seriously scared for his life he said...the man was a spy...OMG I killed a Spy and now the cops are going to kill me...what do I do? Do I stay here or should I run? Where would I go if I do run?The gun fell on the floor and it had writing on the other side of it that said…...One in the chamber could end it all...alright why is it telling me this?

Looking at the window I saw the girl I love walk outside screaming

“WHAT THE HELL IS GOING ON?”

“Ma’am we are trying to get the boy inside he keeps running away from us”

“Are you talking about my boyfriend?”

The sight of her and the cops scared me because when she said boyfriend...I jumped at the the sound of his gun shooting her.

“NOOOOOO…..I have nothing left my mom left on my birthday yesterday, my dad never has anything to do with me, everyone in my life is going away or dying”

Thinking to himself this is it….the gun is the code….The thought that kills...One in the chamber could end it all...that’ the key. Thinking nothing is more than the man behind the thoughts… “should I end it? Would it end it? Saying quietly to himself still heartbroken that his ex girlfriend got shot.

 

“Mom why is this story so long?”

“Do you want me to stop?”

“No, it’s getting good”

 

The boy stood there thinking….am I what’s going to save this place or destroy it?

Then he shot himself….

 

“What was the boy’s name mom?”

“Seth”

“But that’s my name”

“Yeah I know seth”

“Mom why’d he kill himself if he could save the school?”

“Because shooting himself was how he was going to save the school”

“Oh so you’re saying if he didn’t shoot himself the school was to be destroyed?”

“Exactly, well son have a good birthday let me take you home then I’m going to the store to buy groceries for the week.”

“Okay mom, why couldn’t I come with you?”

“It seems it’ll be better if you were home”

“Okay mom I’ll stay home”

 

The Next Day….

 

Waking up that morning wasn’t the best thing for seth, he couldn’t find his mother when she never came home last night after telling him that story.

 

“Mom, are you home?....Maybe if I call her cell phone maybe she would answer.”

Dialing the numbers was easy he just clicked speed dial and he called her…..ring….ring….ring….”hey this is Ashley Knight please leave a message at the beep and I’ll call you back once I have time.”

“Well maybe she will be here when I come back from school later” he thought to himself.

 

Later that morning

 

After getting off the bus with his girlfriend she has some horrible news to tell him.

 

“Seth, my grandma is in the hospital and she wants me to see her later...do you wanna go with me?”

“Sure, then later can we go to the movies?”

“Seth is that all you think about hanging out with me and never letting me spend time with my family?”

“No Emily that’s not all I think about I just thought…”

“Thought what I would forget that my grandma hates you for making me skip her birthday?....WE ARE OVER!”

 

Crying in first and second period confused and ashamed of what has happened he goes to third period where everything changes in minutes….maybe even seconds.

 

It starts as Seth walks into class,

Mrs G. walks over “seth did you do your homework?”

“No, I’m sorry I’ve been going through a lot right now I couldn’t finish it with my mom leaving and so far I have no clue if she’s coming back today or not.”

“Alright but don’t let that be a normal excuse to not finish work Seth”

“It won’t be Mrs. G”

 

That’s how the day normally goes slow third period and depressing first and second period. Until the principal came over the intercom

 

“Kids we are under lockdown”

 

People were screaming are we going to die?

 

“No you idiots, it’s just someone walking around outside. It’s probably another homeless man looking for food and a place to sleep.”

 

Scared and confused seth unfortunately was the only one who heard footsteps walking up the stairs…

 

“Someone’s here….SOMEONE IS HERE” Seth shouted as his mom’s story she told has started to come true.

“Mrs G. we have to get out of here, I know i’m about to sound crazy but there is someone here and he’s trying to kill me!”

“Oh seth, how do you know that?”

“This is going to sound crazy but...I asked my mom to tell me a scary story and so far everything that she has told me has come true I didn’t think she was telling the truth I thought she was making the story up as she was going down the road.”

 

That’s when Mrs G. heard the scratches of the knife….sssssss sssssss...getting closer and closer to the door everyone started to panic…

 

“Mrs G. lock the door before he gets in”

“Ok seth, everyone listen to seth his mom told him a story and it’s coming true”

“Yeah right loser like we’d listen to you”

 

That’s when he knocked on the door….”let me in, I just want to kill a kid”

“No”shouted Mrs G.

“Oh come on I wouldn’t kill him here, more the less some dark underpass”

“No, you’re not coming in”

 

Mrs G. then locked the doors to the room front back...even the windows…

“Everyone get in the closet”

“Okay” said the class pushing and shoving trying to get away to the closet.

Like I said let me in”

“No you’re not coming in”

“LET ME IN OR I”M BUSTING THIS F*****ING DOOR DOWN”

 

Scared and confused on why this is happening the class started to panic

“Are we going to die?” said the most thoughtful teen in the class.

“No not any of you are going to die” I said thinking what about Mrs G. she’s the first one to die I think?

“Alright I’ll bust the door down to get to him”

 

Smash…

 

Footsteps getting closer and closer…..

 

Knock….knock...on the closet door….

 

Then Mrs G. screaming….the knife it’s through here….

 

“No, guys…. listen to….. Seth he knows….. What’s going….to...happen….”

“Okay” the class said in fear,

“But how do we stop him?”

“You don’t have to….I do” I said sadly….

 

This unfortunately is where this book ends if you like

To conclude onto this story to find out if Seth stops

The guy or not….stay tuned for the next book…

The memory that survives

“So where are we going today mom?”

“I don’t know, I haven’t thought about it yet”

“Can you tell me a ghost story?”

“Do you think you’re ready for one of those?”

“YES, Tell me, I want to hear a ghost story”

“Okay which one do you wanna hear the one with the person at school, or the one with the woman running through the woods?”

“The person from school?”

“Yeah”

“Okay I want to hear that one mom!”

“Okay so this is how it starts….there was a boy your age, waking up from a deep sleep. He thought today was going to be perfect, his girlfriend was going to walk to the store with him, he was going to take her home, and have dinner with her parents then go back to school for a concert the band was having...but it didn’t happen the way he wanted it to.  It started when he got in 3rd period….the Principal came on the intercom saying they were under lockdown. Everyone screaming is this a drill? Are we going to die?...then someone started walking up the stairs to where his class was scratching his knife across the wall making the worst screeching noise anyone has ever heard. Then when he got to the door he knocked softly saying “let me in or i’ll come through the window.”“NO,” shouted the teacher as the boy cowered in fear in the corner where his desk was. “Everyone in the closet where we can be safe,” said the teacher locking the other door to the class.“LET ME IN OR I’M BUSTING THIS F***ING DOOR DOWN”

Everything was quiet for a short time after we heard him stop yelling until….he Busted the door down and said “Where is he.” Scared for his life the boy didn’t know what he wanted him for...did I do something? He thought to himself.  

“Mom did the boy do anything?”

“Do you want me to tell you this or not?”

“Yeah…”

“Okay where were we...oh yeah. The boy in the closet didn’t know what was going on he was so scared he started to panic and his teacher and classmates knew he could have a panic attack at any moment. What do we do? they said quietly. The teacher must have got an idea because she started to unlock the door but then….the knife came through the wooden door and wounded her!

She screamed in pain as the knife slowly started going up and down. When he started to panic the man kicked the door open and said kid you're coming with me.

“but why? Did I do something” the boy asked the man.

“no its what you're going to do” the man said sounding a little scared.  As she laid there bleeding out on the floor.They heard footsteps getting further away and then one of his classmates spoke up and said I think we are safe for now let’s go ahead and…

“I Told you I was going to break the F***ing door down now where the H*ll is he?”

The guy saw the boy and thought this was too easy, why was he in the open didn’t the old man say this was the destruction of this school?

“Maybe he’s just a stupid little kid, nobody nobody knows what he’s capable of...not yet anyways”

 

“Mom, what did the old man say about the boy? And didn’t we go see a fortune teller and you didn’t want me to see what he was looking at and hear what he was saying?”

“Yes, but soon you will know why I didn’t want you to see your fortune.”

“But why not? Is it bad?”

“no , I just don’t want you to know what life is going to be like when you get older….that reminds me happy birthday son!”

“Thanks mom, finish the story was it close to over?”

“Nope”

 

Standing face to face with the strange man that stabbed his favorite teacher. The scared boy asked why am I here? Why do you want me? What did I ever do?

“It’s not what you did, It’s what you’re going to do”

“What am I going to do?” said the little boy, scared that he messed up something.

“I can’t tell you that’s why I have to get rid of you...So what’ll it be are you going to run to save yourself or are you just going to let me kill you?”

“Say if I run how far could I go before you come after me”

“To the bottom of the stairs and you better be fast, I’ll give you 10 seconds.”

1….Running out of the closet

2….Running down the stairs

3….Running to the principal's office walking in and seeing her...dead

4….Running to the gym so I could hide under the bleachers

5….sitting there waiting

6….thinking to myself “what if I leave the school and run to the store, could he get me there?”

7….getting out from under the bleachers I run to the secret attic that the school has above the gym.

8….climbing the ladder behind the curtains…”what is up here?”

9….the man slowly walking to the classmates...killing them with a swift slice of the knife like what he did to kill the teacher. Then he walked back to the door and took his gun out of his pocket…

10...the man shot a bullet into the air and the little boy heard it, scared for his life he took out his phone’s flashlight and he saw a box laying on the ground….”what’s in here?”

He slowly opened the box to find a handgun and a ton of ammunition that he could use.

Being under a lot of stress with his girlfriend breaking up with him that morning he was depressed and wanted to commit suicide when he noticed that the gun had writing on the side of it saying...The thought that kills… “why does it say this?”

The man looking through every classroom on the main level of the school, killing anyone who gets in his way.

“I’m screwed everything I’ve ever done was to protect the people I love” he said not knowing that what he does later saves everyone.

The man walked to the gym and see’s the storage room open and he slowly walks over…

“Come here kid I’m going to make it quick...everything will be alright”

Hearing him walk to where the ladder was, scared out of his mind his thoughts were racing and he started to say “Alright i’ll come down and you can take me in the middle of the gym”

“Good...I knew you would come to your senses”

Climbing down the ladder walking to the middle of the gym sitting on his knees, with his hands behind his back. “If you’re going to kill me hurry up and get it over with.”

“Okay, kid don’t rush me” the man reaching for his gun thinking when he kills this kid...how will I get away when someone finally calls the cops on him when they hear shooting. As the man pointed his gun the little boy with his mind racing thought if I wound him I could get away and hopefully call the cops.

“Say goodbye kid, everything is all going to end soon for you”

Finger on the trigger the boy with one quick movement pulls the gun out and shoots him in the knee...well he thought it was the knee, instead he shot him in the stomach.

The man shouted in pain holding his stomach. “I’m going to kill you slowly now you little SHIT”

Making a run for it the boy runs to the back of the school where he thinks he would be safe but the man was hot on his trail. Turning back shooting the man again this time he killed him not knowing where he shot but he kept running. Getting to the stairs in the back of the school he looked outside and he saw a dozen cops parked outside, “come out with your hands up…” they called for the boy to come out so they could take him home. “Either you come out or we are going to come in there to kill you.”

Seriously scared for his life he said...the man was a spy...OMG I killed a Spy and now the cops are going to kill me...what do I do? Do I stay here or should I run? Where would I go if I do run?The gun fell on the floor and it had writing on the other side of it that said…...One in the chamber could end it all...alright why is it telling me this?

Then he shot himself….

 

“What was the boy’s name mom?”
