Untouched

Tracy watched silently from the corner of the room as the mother and daughter giggled together, their bond strong and unbreakable. Ever since discovering a way to possess the living, she had lingered in this house for weeks. Tracy was not like other ghosts. She didn’t seek revenge or unleash terror upon the living. No, her purpose was different. She craved something she had never experienced in her short, tragic life. Tracy’s memories of her time as a living child were filled with neglect and abandonment. She had been a forgotten soul, left to fend for herself in a world … Continue reading Untouched

The Mystery Pit

In “The Mystery Pit,” two curious children stumble upon a strange and massive hole in the ground, and they can’t resist investigating it.

A Letter from Future Greta!

Greta was shocked when she opened the envelope and saw that it was a letter from someone. “Jeez who writes letter these days…” As she opened it, she grew more curious; she read the first sentence aloud in surprise, “Dear 25 year old Greta, you are making the greatest mistake of your life by marrying Jeffery.”  “Seriously, who plans pranks like this!” She continued reading, “You may find this difficult to believe.

Little Whispers

“Let me tell you, do not stay at school after 6 pm.” Louis continued, “last day I heard our teachers discussing about a ghost who haunts our school. Can you imagine, the kid is about our age. Somebody might have murdered him. Anyway, all I know is he haunts our school and trust me it is true.” Everyone stared at him with wide eyes. ‘What if he was saying the truth?’ Everyone had this question but didn’t say anything out loud, scared or laughed at. “Haunting, ghost… nonsense. He is trying to scare us.” Greg came as a saviour now. “No, I … Continue reading Little Whispers

The Candyman

It’s already 5’o clock in the evening, and I am waiting at the bus stop near my school for someone to give me a ride back home. My Maths teacher thinks I am weak in mathematics, so she asked me to stay after school for special tuitions. Yesterday night she rang my mother and told her how weak I was in that subject; I wish she hadn’t done that. I didn’t like staying after school. I will have all those evil thoughts about everything. Honestly, I am scared. What if something unfortunate happens here after 5 pm? My friends tell … Continue reading The Candyman
