Our kids felt like sharing their thoughts with the world and we obliged.
By Preet - Grade 7
It was a fatiguing day in the hustle and bustle of the streets. The sun decided to call it a day while the moon was gearing up to spread its scintillating light on the mother earth.
I was just coming from a party. We had painted the town red there. It was one of the best parties I had ever gone for and it would be etched in my brain like a scar. By the time the party ended, it was already two in the morning. The streets looked like a deserted place. Out of the blue, I heard a screech. I decided to follow the noise even though I knew that I was walking on thin ice.
After following the noise for sometime, I came to an isolated playground and saw two reddish eyes in the atramentous corner of the playground gawking at me. I was on pins and needles but I gathered up courage to check out what kind of creature was there gazing at me.
When I went near it, it suddenly disappeared . When I turned back, a shiver ran through my body as I saw the same draconian eyes. It had two limbs and hands like a human but there was fur on its body and it had a long tail. It would be a repulsive sight for any human . I decided to sprint as fast as lightning to prevent the creature from harming me.
After running for about a mile, I saw that the creature was no longer chasing me. His body reminded me of a werewolf. I decided to call the police to catch the creature. As soon as I called the police, the creature pounced on me.
I woke up with a thud and then heard the mellifluous voice of my mother asking, “ What happened ?” I answered nothing. The repugnant scene of the werewolf turned out to be a nightmare. I was grateful to the almighty that this incident didn’t turn out to be true. I will never forget this nightmare and it still gives me the creeps.
