My room is haunted. Well, only on Halloween. My name is Mike. I live in an old house. Every Halloween, at night, my room starts being haunted. I go up to my room and I play games. After about five minutes, I start hearing noises. Then I check everywhere in my room to see where the noise is coming from. I never find out where the noise is coming from, but I still look. My mom cauldronsaid it is probably just the house creaking because it is so old. I don't believe that! I really think my room is haunted. This Halloween, I plan to find the ghost, even though I doubt I will find it.

The Scary Teachers

By Bryanna, age 12 witch on moon

One day I went out the Shamokin Football Stadium and I saw Miss. K out there. She was a ghost and she scared me to death. I fainted and fell to the ground. There was a noise behind her, but she didn't believe me at all. Even her soccer players believed me! When I was walking home, I went in a spooky Halloween haunted house. All of a sudden, I saw Miss. Kleskie in the haunted house. I also saw Miss. K's class in there, so I ran out of the haunted house as fast as I could. I ran all the way to my mom's house down in Elysburg, PA. She asked what I was sweating about and I said that, "I just got chased by a big ghost and my little brother was with me all the time." He was scared as much as I was and I stayed at my mom's house the whole night.


By Kendra, age 12

One Halloween night Cayle, Bryanna and I were at my house. We heard a noise and we thought that it was my cat, but my cat was up in the room with us. Cayle said, "The noise is getting closer to us," so we went downstairs. Bryanna said, "I don't believe what I just saw. What did you see? I thought I saw a ghost." She was seeing things. But we all saw the ghost and Bryanna said that she was right and we were wrong. We ran up the stairs an hid under my sister's bed. Then we came out and we were scared until my sister came home.

Dead Meat

By Chris, age 12

One day I went down to the basement to get something out of my freezer. I opened the freezer and I was looking for the bag of meat for dinner. I heard a bang in the back cellar. I went to go and see if any one was back there. I was about to go back there when my mom yelled, "Come on Chris, I have to cook dinner so hurry it up."
The next day, I went back down there to see if it was still there. I started to walk back and I heard it again. This time I was not turning back.
I felt strange and I got a tingling feeling in my stomach. I heard the bang again. I started to jog in and a dead body fell from the ceiling. I have been trying to tell them: but they won't listen.

A pinch of mud,
A scale from a fish,

The Super Scary Shock

By Year 5/6, age 9-11, Year 5/6, Park Street Primary School, Cambridge, England

I was walking along a road, nothing to do, nothing to hide. It turned out to be a very strange day. Just innocent me with a blank mysterious mind. I was with my friend and a tall, heavy man approached us. Little did we know that he was a lot more than he seemed.

The day was cold and blue, then the sun came out and filled the sky with glory. The man eyed us strangely. He was wearing a black top, hat and purple flares. We thought he was totally mad wearing purple flares.

He showed us a card and it said MIMC. We were confused.

"Don't worry, " he said, "I'm just a figment of your imagination!" He looked so real, we couldn't believe him. I reached out to touch him, his eyes went red and my hand went straight through him, as if he were winter mist.

My friend let out a wild scream like a tiger. Suddenly we looked down and he had disappeared. Only his purple flares remained.

Then, a loud booming voice said, "oh no, there go my flares again!"

I thought I was a witch

By Michaelea, age 13, Smithville, Texas, USA

I once thought I was a witch. Now I know how wrong I was. I thought I wanted to learn spells. I learned one. Now I'm forever sorry about it. I've taken the likeness of a young girl to warn others of their peril, so listen up! Trust me. You DON'T want to be a witch, lest your immortal soul turn astray like mine has. Like ours was. Ours being me and Katie's. Katie was you basic weird kid. She looked half asleep most of the time and her dark red-brown hair was always in the way of her eyes which were dull green. Me? Well, I never was quite normal. I had this hair that was forever dark at the roots and almost white-blond at the ends, and these bright green eyes that when you looked in them, (as other people told me)seemed to dance with magic or something. Not that I looked up often. I was often told 'Emma! we want to talk to you! Look up!'. Now you know why I have a tendency to not pay attention.
I haven't much time, for taking a body is painful so I gotta be quick.
Well to get on with the story, Me and Katie were over at my house and were gathering up the 8 elements: earth, steel, wind, water, electricity, light, fire, & ice. How'ed we get electricity? I'm not going to tell you. You might be tempted to try my spell that I made up.
The setting: Full moon, Halloween night, Fire. I just love fire. Can't get enough of it. Katie, on the other hand, absolutely loves water. Aannnyway, we had this small campfire going and we get the crazy idea to try my spell!!! So we get this pot and combined the elements together, then start to chant:
These things follow and hunt
the weak minded they would!
to make them scream in horror
they should!
These screams send shiver
thought the souls of good
but rejoice in glee
the dark things would!
These things follow you
night and day,
tormenting you in every way
These things live between the borders
of light and darkness, good and bad
and also in the minds
of people mad
only those who call them
then call them once again
can see them in horror
before the madness began
These things these spirits
of elements bad
can be drowned for a lean night
to people glad
before raising once again.
A sudden gust of wind blows through, blowing out the fire, and dark swallows everything. But me, with my witch eyes, I can see clearly: Dark shadows creep in on the glade where we were practising our spell. A piercing scream shatters the silence, nearly busting my cat-like ears, for I hear everything with them. A shiver races down my spine, and I'm paralyzed. I can't help it: I shut my eyes tight. I hear Katie shriek beside me and I reach out to take her hand, only it's not there; only the traces of her warmth linger there before I accidentally suck it up. I glance around and jump up in terror; the shadows are tearing into Katie's body.
I run.
The manic shadows give chase and I hear them laughing right at my heels. I duck under branches and around trees, but it's no good. The shadows are after me. I sob for breath, but it doesn't come. Then, I trip over a root. One root in the darkness I didn't see.
Because of my fright I'm dead. With my last gasp of a breath, I cant out a protection spell. Then there's blinding pain: the shadows have me. Then suddenly I'm watching them do this. I jump at them screaming but they don't look up from eating my physical body.
Then I realize: I'm a ghost. The spell protected my immortal soul, but it didn't do a thing for my mortal self. Poor Katie didn't even have that. I know that I should be upset, but then again I never was an emotional person. Like a total void of it.
Now I'm cursed to roam the world trying to warn people that can't even hear me. What a Curse!!

Potion of Invisibility

By Mark, age 14, Spangdahlem Air Base, Germany

Racties Butonen,
Not to see by sight,
Racties Butonen,
I blend with day and night.

Racties Butonen,
first here then not,
Racties Butonen,
A mass and then a spot.

Now the Sands of Time drop faster,
you begin to feel a breeze,
Racties Butonen,
and in this state you freeze.

Trick or Treat and Never Return

By Jessica, age 12, Tipp City, OH, United States

It was a wonderful day. The morning dew was still on the ground when Sarah stepped out of bed and rushed into the living room to watch her favorite show "Popular. " Sarah was excited about the day. Her friend Lauren was coming over to play for a few hours and then at around 5:oo Sarah and Lauren were going to go trick or treating. It was the year Sarah had been waiting for. She was 13 and at 13 her mother said that she could finally go trick or treating by herself with friends. She was planning to have the greatest night of her life.
Sarah looked at the clock it was already 9:30. She had slept late that morning and Lauren was expected to come at 10:00 which gave Sarah just enough time to watch her show and get dressed. Sarah's brother was sick with the flu so Sarah's mother agreed to take the girls out to eat and to a movie to kill time before the big night.
Sarah ran to her room forgetting about the show so that she could try on her costume for the 7th time just to make sure she didn't get any bigger over the last couple days. She was going to be a model this year. She had the perfect dress and everything. As she was taking it off the door bell rang. Lauren had come early. Sarah slipped on a pair of jeans and her favorite shirt from Limited. Good Sarah thought that will just give us more time to talk over what houses they were going to stop at to get the best candy. Sarah answered the door and when Laurens mom left Sarah's mom, Lauren, and Sarah all hopped in the car and headed to UNOs to get a quick lunch before the movie at 1:00.
At lunch Sarah's mother told them how important it was to stay outside and not go into anyone's houses while they were trick or treating. Sarah just rolled her eyes and continued eating.
After lunch they went to see The Matrix. Sarah's mom didn't like the movie but the girls just loved it. Sarah's mom said that she was more into the romantic type or the mysterious. The girls just laughed and threw their popcorn away in the trash.
As they were going home to put their costumes on and pile the make-up on their faces Sarah promised her mom that she would not walk into houses, even if it was someone that she knew.
When Sarah and Lauren got to Sarah's house they ran into Sarah's room to put their costumes on and then they stood in front of the mirror for about 20 minutes admiring their beautiful costumes. It was 4:30 and Sarah and Lauren were going to leave in 15 minutes so that they could get to the sight that they were trick or treating at in time.
When Sarah and Lauren were finally ready they hopped in the car and Sarah's mom dropped the girls off at Deer Creek, the neighbor hood that they were trick or treating at.
When Lauren and Sarah's pillow cases were foul of candy they just decided to walk around and look at the scary decorations on peoples houses. They came upon a house that look pretty scary and it said Enter if you Dare on the door.
Sarah forgot about what she promised her mom and she stepped into the house. 24 hours later the police were still looking for Sarah and Lauren and then a year later the police gave up on the case. No one knows what happened to 13 year old Sarah and Lauren but even if you think you will be safe you really never know.
