The Scary Sleepover
Reader Star Rating:
By 8 Year Old Syeda Rania Zahra
CHAPTER 1 - Something To Look Forward To.
Laura was sitting on her bed reading a book; she did not want to be disturbed.
Just then the phone started ringing very loudly, Brrr-ing Brrr-ing.
Laura was very annoyed but she was also curious, "Who could be calling at 10'o clock at night-time?"
She answered the phone, "Hello?"
"Laura did you know about the sleepover we are having on Saturday night at school?" Her friend Samantha said in a loud voice.
"Samantha? What sleepover are you talking about?" asked Laura in her wide awake voice. "Saturday sleepover at school, don't you remember the posters around the school? The sleepover is tomorrow!" yelled Samantha.
"OH, okay, I'll pack for tomorrow." Laura said sleepily, her eyes were actually drooping.
She got her blue sleeping bag with pink hearts on it out of the cupboard; she kept a flashlight, a pillow, a blanket and a water bottle in it.
She also thought of what to pack for lunch.
She put a chocolate chip cookie, an orange, yogurt and some chips.
CHAPTER 2 - At The Sleepover
When Laura arrived at the sleepover the next day, everybody was already playing board games and reading books, some were even listening to music on their phones.
Just then, Ms. Clara came in and said, "Girls, you can play whatever you want, but just don't go in that room on the right, okay?"
The girls nodded, and then Ms. Clara left the room.
"I wonder what's in that room" asked one of Laura's friends, curiously.
"I guess it won't hurt if we take a little sneak peek." said Samantha.
All the girls tiptoed to the room; they went inside, it was very clear they didn't know what a "little sneak peek" means.
Anyway, back to the story.
Just after they stepped into the room, the giant metal door closed with a big thud and a gigantic bang.
One of Laura's friends started crying, another one was shivering with fright.
Creepy sounds floated around the room.
CHAPTER 3 - A Chase
A white sheet started moving around the room; it touched Samantha on the shoulder.
The girls screamed as they ran for their lives and opened the door with Laura's bobby pin.
They went downstairs and there was another ghost waiting for them.
They went back upstairs; and you guessed it, there was another ghost.
CHAPTER 4 - A Nasty Surprise
All the ghosts came together in one room and the girls were surrounded.
One of the ghost's toes was poking out from under the sheet.
Laura did not believe they were ghosts after all; she pulled the sheets off the ghosts.
Would you believe it, the ghosts were Ms. Clara, Mr. Galvin and Mrs. Sophia.
"It was you all along?" shouted Laura.
"We did this to punish you, we knew you would not listen to us when I specifically told you not to go in the room on the right." said Ms. Clara.
"Sorry" said the girls together.
From that day on they were always obedient.
