Scream

by Lottie
(Upton upon Severn, Worceser, Worcestershire.)

"HELP!!" A voice in the distance screamed. I ran to the house. It was behind me i knew it. Don't scream i told my self. But if i didn't scream no one would come! I looked behind me. As I slowly turned round my heart thumped more and more. Until finally it saw me. BANG!!!

Lets start from the beginning, hi, me name is Sheena and i live with my mum, dad and two sisters Lottie and Amy. seems pretty normal, right? Well i'm sorry to say wrong. you see my m's a spy my dads a robot Lottie's a maniac Amy's an alien and i'm crazy. no not hat weird but almost. you see we live in this old fashioned mansion because my mm and dad are weird like that. You say something is is haunted and my parents buy it!

but thats not all, there's a forest next to it and there used to be a cottage apparently full of witches and if you screamed when they were behind you they would kill you just like that! Scary huh? So anyway my family well my sisters and i believe it's nothing but nonsense until we found out ourselves we were wrong.

one day we came home from school and mum and dad were rambling on about the rubbish in the forest, so me and my sisters left the house and walked to the shops. when we came back our parents were out and they had left a note " be back soon just gone to the pub!" as per usual it was a thursday night. so we sat at home thinking about this folk legend. maybe it was true. so we looked it up on the internet and loads of things came up! nothing that caught our eyes though.

the next day we went to school and we had history, and guess hat we were learning, yup the folk ledgend and everybody thought it to be true, even us girls. we learned about the witches and the cottage and the not screaming thing! when the day was over we went home and told our parents who loved us for beliving. but oh no thats not the end. my sisters thought it to be funny to go and have a look in the forest so lottie went off first.

she went deep into the woods and phoned us when she got to the cottage. we waited anxiously and nothing happend. THEN out of no where the silence stoped and she whisperd to us on the phone "help me please, help me." we thought she was playing around then suddenly the phone cut off! so then mum and dad went searching after her. me and amy waited but nothing so that was it. we had to go down there our selves so we grabbed walkie talkies, knifes a bat and we wore high heel boots in case.

we truged down the path and as we got to the entrance we saw the cottage, small but still creepy. A light was on my heart started to pound, my hands were shaking. i took one step forward and 4 twigs cruched i steped back and nearly had a heart attack then my sister said to me "no matter hat happens i love you!" Those were the last words my sister said to me. we seperated i looked around the forest and she went to the cottage. it was dark and very very spooky. i carried on walking and then suddenly "HELP!!" A voice in the distance screamed.

I ran to the house. i searched but nothing then i realised it was behind me i knew it. Don't scream i told my self. But if i didn't scream no one would come! I looked behind me. As I slowly turned round my heart thumped more and more. Until finally it saw me. BANG!!!

I never saw my family again and im still searching because one day i will find them but in the meanwhile i have one piece of advice. NEVER GO IN THE WOODS ON YOUR OWN. especialy if there is a cottage that is rumored to have held evil witches in!
