...a goblin... it jumped out. I ran to the bedroom and locked the door screaming with fright and hid under my bed. The door banged open. I sat there shivering trying to be quiet.

The little goblin had a sharp axe. I wet myself. I didn’t now what to do. The axe raised into the air and came down with a thump. I wrote this as a story and it became true!
