It all began one day when I was over my friend Susan\'s house. Her parents had
just left for vacation to Texas, leaving her home by herself. I was allowed to stay that
weekend while her parents were away. Susan and I were sitting down eating when she
got a call from the house where a new family just moved into. The Smith\'s had asked her
to babysit for them. They said it was all right if I came too. They wanted us to come
over about six that evening.
When we got over there Mrs. Smith introduced her two year old daughter named
Julie to us. Mr. and Mrs. Smith didn\'t leave right away because they wanted Julie to get
to know us better. Mrs. Smith told Susan and I that Julie could stay up until 8:00 P.M..
She also told us she had been having problems with her telephone. There must have been
something wrong with the connection because when it rang there would be no one on the
other end. Someone was coming tomorrow to take a look at it.
Mr. and Mrs. Smith informed us that they would be a little late coming home
because it was their anniversary and they had a long night planned. We told them to have
a nice time and they both grabbed their coats and left.
Julie started crying just as they closed the door. We gave her a bottle and put her
down to watch some TV. Then the phone rang and Susan and I looked at each other,
seeing who was going to answer it.
I answered the phone but no one was there. I said hello again, but still no answer.
All I could hear was someone breathing heavily. It was loud, gasping, and very
frightening. I said hello again and heard a faint, masculine voice. As I began to tremble,
the voice whispered, "I\'m coming."
All of a sudden the lights went out. Susan, Julie and I let out a loud shriek. I ran
over to Susan and Julie and hid my head. Susan started laughing and told me it was
probably because of the storm outside. We both looked out the window when a bolt of
lighting struck across the sky. Julie began to cry and we comforted her and told her it
would be all right.
Susan was going to go down into the basement to find the fuse box so she could
turn the lights back on. It was time for Julie to go to bed so I grabbed a flashlight and we
went up stairs. I tucked her in and read her a short story.
All of a sudden I heard a loud screech. I jumped up and ran down into the
basement where Susan was. I hurried down the basement steps where I saw Susan\'s still
body laying on the floor and her head on top of the fuse box. I froze with astonishment,
when I saw written on the wall with blood "YOUR NEXT." As fast as I could, without
thinking, I ran up the steps frantically. I got up the steps trembling and locked the
basement door behind me. I ran up into Julie\'s room to get her so we could leave the
house. I looked in her room and she was gone from her bed. I heard foot steps coming
from the basement. I called Julie\'s name a few times, but with no answer, I thought he
had already got to her. I picked up the phone to call the police but the line was dead.
I didn\'t know what to do so I went to the kitchen to get a knife. There weren\'t any
kitchen utensils since they had recently moved in and weren\'t finished unpacking yet. I
saw a small pocket knife on the counter, grabbed it and headed toward the front door. I
thought the best thing to do was to get out of the house as quickly as possible. As I crept
past the steps I noticed a low crying coming from Julie\'s room. It sounded like Julie so I
dashed up to her room and heard it again. It was coming from her closet. As I opened
the door I saw Julie huddled in the corner of the closet crying. I picked her up and
carefully ran to the front door.
Feeling a little relieved that Julie wasn\'t hurt, I tried opening the front door but

Nuclear StrikesNuclear Strikes Scientifically, there is no obstacle for a nuclear or atomic bomb. There are no secrets in Nuclear Science anymore. Anyone with a reasonable physics degree and access to a good technical library could design a workable atomic bomb in less than 6 months, so why hasn't anyone. Maybe there has been, no one is exactly sure. In the last 52 years there has been enough nuclear warheads made to destroy every city in the world and still have thousands left over.(Church 40) This all happen

Serial killers 2Serial killers 2 Prior to discussing what serial killers do, we must identify and pinpoint what a serial killer is. We generally tend to attribute the same name for serial killers and mass murderers. This is incorrect because they are two independent and different types of killers. While both of these individuals may kill many people, the difference lies in the reason they kill and the period over which they kill their victims. An event or a build up of circumstance triggers mass murderers and c
Although musicians had been recording fiddle tunes known as Old Time M Although musicians had been recording fiddle tunes (known as Old Time Music at that time) in the southern Appalachians for several years, It wasn't until August 1, 1927 in Bristol, Tennessee, that Country Music really began.

Discuss the issues of publishing pictures that have been altered usingDiscuss the issues of publishing pictures that have been altered using a computer. Picture and subject manipulations have been a part of photography since it was first invented. But because of computer technology, digital manipulations are relatively easy to accomplish, hard to detect and perhaps more alarming, alter the original image so that checking the authenticity of the picture is impossible. Some critics have predicted that in a few years, images -- whether still or moving -- will not be

They have and will continue to shock and sicken us to the core of our being, yet they are treated as legends. We, the public, have a very perverse relationship with them and their evil deeds. Books and movies made regarding their atrocities make millions, yet they are still punished and some are put to death. Does this mean that there is a dark side to us all and we are using the active serial killers a

AggressionAggression Aggression is a critical part of animal existence, which is an inherent driving force to humans, as we, too, are animals. The source of aggression within humans is a long summative list, but before trying to understand its source one must apply a working definition of aggression. Aggressive behavior is defined by Encyclopedia Britannica as any action of an animal that serves to injure an opponent or prey animal or to cause an opponent to retreat. (7) David G. Myers states that aggress

Rhetorical Questions about Mark Rhetorical Questions about Mark In the fifth chapter of Mark, we find an extremely interesting combination of two stories concerning faith: the story of the raising of Jairus’ daughter from the dead (5:21-24, 35-43) and the story of the healing of the woman who had a hemorrhage for 12 years (5:25-34). The story of the woman with the hemorrhage is embedded in the other story. This literary technique is known as an intercalation or “sandwich” structure. Scholars have attempted to explain the inte
