The Haunted House

By Izzy

It was a bright, sunny day and there seemed like there could never be a cloud in the sky. Jenny was very excited to go to the carnival, and most importantly the 'haunted house of horrors', of course it was only fake and totally plastic, but she wanted to see whether all the rumours were true. Apparently, many years ago at the carnival, a young child, about her age had entered the haunted house and never returned. She knew it was just a rumour and nothing more. But she felt scared because the girl was her age and that day was the 10 year anniversary of her death.
As jenny walked through the rattly fence of the house of horrors, some grey clouds filled the sky and all you could hear for miles was the ear piercing song of thunder. Jenny took one deep breath and walked in. the moment her last foot left the outside word she heard a voice “walk nearer if you dare” she knew that those sounds were just pre-recorded to scare her. But when she heard the sound of cackling, followed by a shrill scream, she knew something was wrong. she felt frozen in time, unable to move, unable to scream. She stood there, knowing that she had to run away, or face her death. After about 10 minutes of silent encouragement she finally got the courage to run to the door. But someone was waiting for her.
She screamed as a dark, shadowy figure pounced on her and wrapped a log rope around her throat. But all was not lost let. They dragged her to a dark room where she saw a little girl, her age staring back at her with a blank face and dull eyes. She automatically knew who this was, it was the girl who died 10 years ago. But she did not die. One of the men looked at her and said “ choose one, your death or hers”. Jenny looked at the girl, pretty much dead, starving, in major need of company. She looked at herself, full, happy, greedy maybe. She knew what she had to do “me…kill me…spare her life….”. she saw a log sharp blade swing over her head, she braced herself for the impact and hoped that the man would keep to his side of the bargain and spare the other girls life.
The man spared the girls life and she lived happily, telling the story everywhere she went about the girl who saved her life.
