It's only the wind

by Connor Garlington

The night

The night

One night I had gone to bed terrified because of a horror movie I had watched called Poltergeist. I was only 6 so it scared me more than usual. I soon woke up to a horrible hissing noise. I screamed and ran to my parents and told them what happened they both laughed and said 'oh it's just the wind honey, now go back to sleep'.

I did, and I woke up again from the sound of whispering. I ran down to my parents room and yet again they said it's just the wind. So I went back to sleep and the words kept floating in my mind like debris in an ocean 'it's just the wind, it's just the wind.'

I awoke again to the sound of breathing, heavy breathing. This time I was certain it was not the wind and I ran into my parents room only to hear 'IT'S JUST THE WIND' I was so mad I screamed 'IT'S NOT THE WIND'. I ran to my room crying to find a man with a snake sitting facing the corner of a wall rocking back and forth. As soon as he turned his face I was paralyzed with fear. What I saw was unforgettable.

His nose was gone... just a gaping hole, one of his eyes was half gone with blood pouring straight into his mouth he had no lips and only a few locks of hair. Once he saw me he came running at me with half of his eye and his nose in his hands. When he opened his mouth blood poured out and he had no tongue, so he spoke with a horrible voice. I screamed and ran to my parents. When they saw him they closed and locked their door.

We sat there, called 911, and hugged each other, crying. Soon we heard a tapping on the window. In horror I looked to see my neighbors face with tears in her eyes. We opened the window and let her in. She soon told us the man had come and frightened her and killed her children and husband. Luckily she got away.

Soon enough, the police arrived and took the man away and put him into a mental institution. Apparently he had schizophrenia and was extremely dangerous.

Today, 5 years later, I was watching the news and he had escaped from the institute. All they had for a lead was a note on his bed saying he is always watching. I don't know if I will stay alive tonight so I would just like to put my story out there.

Remember, the next time you hear something and you think 'Oh it's just the wind' ... think again.

Tips for Scary Stories
by: Anonymous

It was OK. The trick to a scary story is to make it spooky, not just sheer blood and gore. Also, I think the grammar could be better. When I read a story with no punctuation, in my mind I barrel right through it. A scary story should have dramatic pauses, and a a slow but spooky pace. Other than those two things, I loved it. I had a very vivid picture in my head. That's good! Good job.

So a bleeding disfigured guy is a killer, not the victim? I got confused. But the rest was good.
