It was 1999 when it happened, when granddad died. We new it would happen just not the way it did.




In 1990 Granddad, Geoff, got a parcel. It contained a Doll with Dolly-Anna written on the label.

She was left in the attic until my...ah 15th birthday. He gave me this creepy looking doll he said her name was Dolly-Anna. The next day I threw it in the bin. Granddad wasn’t too bothered.

One day I got a call they said it was Dolly-Anna the voice spoke “Dolly-Anna coming at ya, I'm 10 blocks away.” They hung up. Another call “I'm 9 blocks away,” the voice hung up again. “I'm 2 blocks away.” I ran to mum “there’s this voice and it’s about to come and kill us all.” Mum didn’t believe me. Another call “I'm in front of you!” I look down to see the doll granddad got me staring me in the face. I let out a almighty scream.

Granddad cut it into pieces and threw it into the fire. 5 years later in 1999 she came back.

Granddad was sleeping when a Dolly-Anna walked into his room. Her white dress was turned black and only just covering her. Her silky golden hair was burnt to cinders and she only had one red eye. “DOLLY-ANNA WILL RETURN!!!!!!” she shrieked.

Granddad woke up but it was too late. She dug a dagger into his chest and then ripped him open. She threw the remains of him into the fire.

In the morning I went into his room and saw footprints on the walls, made out of blood, I followed the to the ceiling where Dolly-Anna was hanging. I walked around the room. Where ever I went the dolls head followed me.

We had a funeral 2 weeks later. Mum started drugs and dad ran off with another girl after.

This was an interesting story. I thought if you had added more details it would have made it a bit more terrifying. Also, in the fifth paragraph, when you're mentioning the dolls hair, you wrote "her" instead of "hair".

It was scary though.
