A challenge for iloveyou!

It was prom and I was by far the best looking one there. In my lilac puffy ball gown and up-do with a tiara, I was the only thing that stood out... I was the schools good luck charm.

"Emily you look beautiful,” my best friend Aisha complimented me.
"Geez. You’re so nice,” I replied with a smirk on my face.
It wasn’t my fault I was such a bitch, when you have everything you want, you just can’t help it. I get any guy I want, I've got the money and the most important thing of all... I've got the looks.

"You’re defiantly going to be crowned queen,” My ex Ryan purred at me.
"Sorry, the king has to be good-looking, so I guess you’re out of the question,” I replied looking at him in the face.
"Ouch,” He winked at me.
My cell started to ring as I was walking away from Ryan who was just gazing at me. I knew I would regret ever dating him, but he was such a good fuck! Serious.
"Hello, Emily Grace speaking,” I giggled to myself as I answered the phone.
"Come outside,” An un-familiar voice chuckled to himself on the other end of the phone.
"And ruin my dress? You must be kidding me, good joke! Seriously though, who is this?" I asked.
"You'll find out if you come outside,” He replied.
"No, why should I come outside to just see someone who rang me!" I laughed, what kind of practical joke was this? It wasn’t funny... it was lame.
The guy on the other end of the phone started laughing, maniac laughing...
"That wasn’t funny? What are you laughing at?" I asked looking around the room.
"It is funny, because you can’t see me... but I can see you,” His voice was filled with anger, hatred but humor at the same time.
"Okay, this isn’t funny, is this Mason? Because I'll kick your ass if I found out it is!" I said before quickly turning around to a tap on my shoulder.
I looked over to see Mason smiling at me, he was waving... he had nothing in his hands. Mason would be the only one I knew that could pull off a horrible practical joke... but he was here.
"H-Hello?" I stuttered into my phone.
"Come outside, we can have a little fun,” His voice was a little too confident.
"Well if you’re inside, how about we have fun in here? Because if you can see me, you’re obviously inside, I may be blonde, but I’m defiantly not stupid."
"You must be stupid because you’re not playing the rules to my game."
"What game? There's no games going on here, it’s a prom, obviously you can’t see me, so you can just go fuck yourself, go play your games with another girl, bye!" I said before snapping my cell shut.
I was just about to walk to the toilets before my cell started ringing again, sighing I took it out of my pocket and answered it.
"Lilac dress, blonde up-do with extensions, a silver shiny tiara, purple strappy shoes, birth mark on the right side of your shoulder, heading to the toilets as we speak,” His voice was edgy and deep.
“W-who are you?” I said into my cell stopping on my left foot turning to look around the hall again.
“You’ve decided to play the game… so here are the rules. You stay inside your friends die. You come outside, and nothing harms them,” the stranger said seriously.

I looked around carefully taking into detail of anyone on their phone or with an ear piece in.

“This isn’t funny now, I mean it’ll be a good joke on Halloween, but please leave me alone,” I sighed.
“Come and find me,” the guy challenged.
“If I come outside you’ll leave me alone?” I asked confused.
“You have my word,” He chuckled.

I slowly walked to the entrance of the Prom Venue and stood inside the door.

“Okay, I’m looking outside,” I said.
“No, you said you’d come outside, your technically still inside,” He replied.
“Big deal, now what do you want?”
“Walk to the black hummer you see in front of you, and get in.”
“Are you fucking kidding me! Sorry but they will be calling out the king and queen in a moment and I’m-”
“Or do you want something bad to happen to your precious friend Aisha?”

In the background of the phone I heard muffling sounds, like a girl’s voice. Oh my gosh; he really did have Aisha!

I slowly walked out of the venue only to be hit hard over the head with a brick, before my eyes slowly closed I could see a dressed all in black guy, dragging my body across the concrete floor. Oh shit, my dress.


My eyes fluttered open to a dark room, I had grey tape over my mouth, I was tied against a pole, my arms and legs tied together. I was stood up right. I could only just notice the dim figure in the middle of the room facing me.

“You came outside like you promised,” the guy in the middle of the room chuckled.

I started mumbling through the tape. Why put it around my mouth if I can’t fucking talk!?

The guy came closer and I noticed he was wearing a black scream mask. My eyes opened, I’ve always hated that film!

He ripped the tape right off my lips, he didn’t try to be gentle either.

“Ouch!” I shouted.
“What do you expect? I’ve kidnapped you, I’m not meant to be nice to you,” He spat.
“W-where’s Aisha?” I said quietly.
“I thought you might ask me that,” He smiled.

The stranger walked over to the middle of the room where he was stood the first time, picked something up and threw it at me.

I didn’t understand what it was until I realized that… thing had a face… Aisha’s face. Wait, he killed her!

I was just about to scream until he chuckled and placed a finger over my mouth.

“I wouldn’t scream if I was you, your next,” He laughed.
“B-but! Why are you doing this to me?” I cried.

His face clocked to the right, I could just imagine a grin arising on his mysterious face.

“Because you’re not the most loved thing around here. I think I’m proving the truth. You’re not the schools good luck charm. Your there bad luck charm,” His voice was pure evil.

I just looked down at Aisha’s blooded face.

“Why did you kill her?” I asked curious.
“A year ago, we dated, she wouldn’t fuck me. I got over it. Then she met you. And everything changed. She thought she was much better off without me, so she joined your little crew… you fucked my life up Emily, and now I’m going to end yours!” He chuckled grabbing a wooden pole.
“If you liked her! Why kill her?” I asked suddenly trying to stall time.
“Because she still stuck up for you,” He replied.

Just as he began to swing the wooden pole, he stopped and looked at me. Staring. He reached for his mask and pulled it off standing in the creek of moonlight, so I could see him.

“D-Damon!?” I stuttered, looking at him surprised.
“Goodbye Emily,” He replied before picking up the wooden pole and smashing it against my fragile body.

“But you’re my brother,” I whispered before he cracked the wooden pole against my ribs and pierced my lung.

Suffocating I stared into his cold blooded killing eyes, with no guilt, sorry or even a why. I took my last awkward breath as I saw in walk out of the basement with a grin on his face.
(The reason Damon – Emily’s brother killed her, is because he was jealous of Emily. She got everything he wanted.)

Thrilling short story.
The build up to the climax is amazing and the climax itself is brilliantly thought of.

10 on 10 for this one.

Keep writing..
