My Short Story By Natalie Nguyen

Short Story!

On a gloomy afternoon, I casually walked in the woods by myself, not being able to entertain myself. I kept walking until, I saw this huge shadow in the corner of my eye, it made some loud breathing noises but I was so afraid to turn to my left side. As I turned, it made this giant loud rumble and I jumped! But I then realized it was just my stomach, I guess I scared myself because I was hungry.

I continued my boring journey through the woods, I was so lonely and bored, I just wanted a friend by my side and to play with! Still walking alone, not knowing what to do, but I saw a light, about a half mile away. I started to jog to it, because 20 years ago, there was a terrorist attack from these people that we’re mad at the governor for making these rules about not being able to buy stuff that were from another country. So, everyone was killed by these bombs that terrorists had hid underground.

The weather outside was freezing, leaves blew around, my hair blew into my face. Breathing heavily, I pulled my hair back and I started to walk up the hill, to the light and I notice that there was a girl in a white dress standing in the middle of the road. She hadn black hair and didn’t have much face features, just eyes and a face that’s black. As I walked up to it, I was so terrified, I had no idea who this girl was or where she came from because I hadn’t seen any other human in this town for ages.

As I walked up to it, I was so terrified, I had no idea who this girl was or where she came from because I hadn’t seen any other human in this town for ages.

I said ‘’Um.. Hi there, I’m Summer’’. She turns her head 360 degrees, looks straight into my eyes, and I notice something coming out of her eyes, I think it was blood… I stare at her, and she starts SCREAMING!!!!!!

I then realized it was me who was screaming from a horrible, scary dream. I got up, rubbed my eyes, looked at my clock, it was 9 a.m. on a saturday morning. That dream was so scary, I literally could’ve peed my pants in bed. I stretched for a second and I finally got out of bed, got ready and went downstairs to eat breakfast because during the dream, I was actually hungry when I was walking through the woods, that’s strange?

I usually have breakfast already made, waiting on the table that was made by my mom. She usually has to leave for work early so I usually just eat alone, go on my phone and finish eating. I put my dishes in the sink and started washing them because I like to have our sink without any dishes sitting there and so does my mom.

I was walking up my stairs, halfway there, I hear a ‘’BANG’’ and I jumped and almost fell down the stairs. I then walked back downstairs to see what was going on and I notice some blood on the window. “Oh my gosh, is that blood?!’’ I said in my mind, quietly. I looked down from the window, and I didn’t see any sign of a dead bird accidentally flying and hitting our window. I got suspicious, I didn’t want to text my mom to freak her out, but I was going to keep track of all the clues if anything else happened because i swear, if we have a ghost living in our home, I am packing my bags and moving far, far, far away from this house. So, I then walked up the stairs again, ‘’ugh!! These stairs are seriously so annoying’’ .

As I opened my door, I walked in and I found everything on my floor was broken. In my head I’m thinking, why would anyone do this to me??? I don’t know what to do about this! I was so mad at whoever did this. I yelled ‘’if anyone is here right now, and had just come into my room to ruin my things, then show me a signal that you’re here’’. You may or may not wanna believe this but I literally saw my shirt being taken off of my hanger and the thing, THREW IT AT ME!!!!!!! I said ‘’Ok, that’s enough, if you’re the ‘magical creature’ that has been doing all these pranks, then stop, because it isn’t funny’’.

“Oh hello my dear, I’m the person from your dream. It’s been wonderful staying in your beautiful home” Said the girl. ‘’First of all, that was a dream, how’d you even get into my home?! Second, in my dream you were a girl, why does your voice sound like a women?” I asked her.

She didn't respond but I don't even care about this thing anymore, so I started picking up my things, shelving it back into place. It was quiet for ten minutes and I heard water coming from the bathroom, I groaned loudly. ‘’What does this woman or girl WANT!?’’ I slowly walked to the bathroom, with my phone prepared to call 911. I stood outside of the door, and I heard the thing sing. To this day, once in awhile, I feel the woman’s presence but she didn’t harm me. But there would be times where I feel like she’s around my house, following me.
