Here are some entries from St Augustine’s Catholic Primary School, Leeds.

Sean De Asis, 10.

It was already dark when Joanne headed home. For some reason all the street lights had suddenly gone off and all around her was pitch black. Oh why did I leave it so late, she thought with a shiver, especially as it was Halloween.

The shimmering white moon was in the sky, Joanne thought, “Wow, what a lovely night.’

Suddenly, Joanne heard some rustling in the bushes; she then had a feeling.

A bad feeling like she was being watched by someone. Joanne started speed walking so fast.

Then Joanne found a house that looked very distorted.

When she approached the house and entered it, she started getting very, very itchy for some reason. Joanne found a room with a chair and a doll with a name tag that said, ‘Joanne’.

Joanne looked at the doll with a sharp look. Then, without notice, a hand touched her shoulder, the hand looked very black and had a red ring on it. Then Joanne vanished......... GONE!

A few days later, someone found the doll and the tag. But what was weird about this is that this doll had the numbers of Joanne’s birthday 8/1/02...........

Siarra Mautadin, 5

It was already dark when Joanne headed home.

For some reason all the street lights had suddenly gone off and all around her was pitch black.

Oh why did I leave it so late, she thought with a shiver, especially as it was Halloween.

Suddenly she saw ghosts coming from far away and got scared.

Joanne hid behind a big tree but the ghosts came next to the tree and saw her. She had her eyes closed and she was shivering.

When one of the ghosts touched her, she started to screamed really loud. “Ah ah” but then all the ghosts catch her and there was a voice saying Joanne stop screaming it’s us your friends dressed up as ghosts and pumpkin faces.

When she realised it was actually her friends they all had a big good laugh and all went home and had a nice cup of milk and biscuits.

Laura Moskwa, 9

It was already dark when Joanne headed home.

For some reason all the street lights had suddenly gone off and all around her was pitch black.

Oh why did I leave it so late, she thought with a shiver, especially as it was Halloween.

Somewhere in the bushes she heard a moaning sound.

She quickly turned around and watched the bushes, her body frozen.

‘Was it my imagination or is it time?’ she asked herself.

When she slowly turned around and started walking home she felt a cold breath against her back.

Goosebumps appeared on Joanne and she slowly turned around.

What her eyes saw was the worst horror in her life.

A hairy monster with one, green, triangle eye; its body all wrapped in bandages; sharp fangs like a vampire and from its hands and legs were left bones.

She screamed with all her might and rushed home hearing the beast moaning behind her.

Finally, she dashed into her house and into her room. Joanne reached for a book called ‘What Monster Is It?’

She flicked to the page 115 saying ‘Transforming Beast’.

It said that if the beast clipped its fangs into somebody they would change into a...... Vampire! Phew!

She sighed, “If I had not run fast enough, I would change into a deadly vampire”.

Joanne glanced out the window to make sure that the beast was nowhere to be seen.

After five minutes, her parents came back from the shops and her mum called to her, “Joanne, hungry for some blood? I mean food?”

Joanne came down and her parents acted weird.

Her mum grinned and that’s when she saw the fangs. Joanne ran outside and hid somewhere. Then she got stunned and felt needles clip into her back.

Three minutes later, she woke up and realised that she was a vampire!

When she got used to it, she liked being a vampire but she had to drink carrot juice! Yuck

Michaela Reed, 15. Priesthorpe School, Pudsey

It was already dark when Joanne headed home.

For some reason all the street lights had suddenly gone off and all around her was pitch black.

Oh why did I leave it so late, she thought with a shiver, especially as it was Halloween.

She could hear howling behind a crumbling wall, the night was filled with strange noises.

She tried to turn and run home but fell to the floor with a crash which sounded like a door slamming shut.

She wanted to get up but her foot was stuck; suddenly she felt a slimy hand grab her arm, she panicked and she reached out to see who was there.

She screamed for help but the only thing that appeared was a bright glowing pumpkin which shone like an orange sun.

The pumpkin got closer and closer and peered over Joanne, she could smell the sweet stench of its flesh.

She screamed for help again and there was a creepy silence.

Then she felt a slimy hand grab her face she sat up sharply in her bed, sweating and shaking.

Rubbing her eyes she breathed a sigh of relief when she realised that it was all a dream.

Or was it? Her face was covered in a thick layer of slime and the smell of pumpkin filled her room.

She tried to climb out of her bed but once again she was stuck.

Pulling back the covers she stared in horror as she saw that her feet had grown longer and branched out like fingers..... no not fingers ROOTS!

Her skin was stretching and swelling and turning a shade of orange.

When her mum came to wake her a few hours later, all she found was a giant pumpkin on the bed.

Ben Rowley, 15

It was already dark when Joanne headed home.

For some reason all the street lights had suddenly gone off and all around her was pitch black.

Oh why did I leave it so late, she thought with a shiver, especially as it was Halloween.

Joanne then saw one abandoned old house with lights on, Joanne walked nervously to the house, before she knocked the door opened she looked and nobody was inside.

Joanne who was shaking like jelly and saw something moving and then she heard a strange breathing noise and felt a chill down her arms. She heard a whisper, ‘Joanne’.

“Who’s there?” Joanne asked nervously, the bed sheets started to move and she shut her eyes.

When she opened them the bed disappeared but on the floor was some crimson red blood.

Suddenly the brittle wooden floor then started to creak and crack like broken bones, Joanne crept anxiously away but it was too late the whole floor collapsed ‘Help!’ screamed Joanne as she plummeted to the ground.

When Joanne hit the water she she thought she was going to drown, she thought to 
herself ‘I’m not going to make it’ but when she tried to 
swim to shore she noticed a cloud of blood trailing from her body and then she started to feel the pain.

When she got out of the water the whole sea had turned red.

Joanne started to faint and when she woke up she was back at that street next to the lamp post and the house had disappeared and so had the blood ...
