Chatrooms can be bad for your health
There was this girl named Lizzie. She was 15 years old and she had been talking in a chat room to a guy she thought was 16 but was really 37. Lizzie had a sister named Carmen who was 14. The family was poor and had not a lot of money so Lizzie and Carmen shared a room and a bed.
One evening, when Lizzie told the guy she was getting off for the night, he said "No. Stay or I will find you". Lizzie didn't believe him so she went to bed with her sister, but a few seconds later Lizzie heard a tapping at the window in the other room. She got up to see who or what it was. There was no one there, so she went back to her room.
When she got into her bed this time there was a revolting smell. Lizzie turned on the light to see that her sister's blood surrounded her body, because Carmen had been skinned alive! Just then she heard the tapping again so she went back to the window, and again, nothing was there.
The next morning Lizzie awoke to silence. There was no sister to wake up to. Lizzie went back on the chat room, and the first one to start talking to her was the 37 year old man. "I told you I would find you" said the guy. "Don't talk to me, you killed my sister!" "Yes, but I meant to kill you!" "Well you never will!" Later that night, when Lizzie was sleeping, she too was skinned alive!
10 years later, Lizzie's parents had a new child named Dylan. When he turned 15 he was also on a chatroom, and then a girl named Lizzie started talking to him. She said "do you know who I am?" Dylan responded "No, I'm sorry." "Oh, mom and dad never told you about me. You had 2 sisters 10 years ago, but we were killed, and since mom and dad didn't tell you about us they will have to pay! Oh, and if you want to know the name of your other sister, check the back of your closet. Our names are carved in a heart."
The next day Dylan awoke to find his parents dead.
