It was a dark and stormy Halloween night and Sal and Jess
her best friend were at Sal\'s house for the night to watch
movies.
Knock, Knock, Knock, "Sal, someones at the door do you
want me to answer it?", Jess yelled to Sal who was upstairs
doing her hair in the bathroom. "Yeah Cool Jess its probably
just some more annoying trick or treaters anyway", replied Sal.
Jess got up off the couch and approached the door making
sure to peer through the peephole to see who it was. All she
could make out were two small dark figures so she guessed they
were trick or treaters. She then opened the door just enough so
she could have the latch on. "Grrrrrrr we are the creatures from
hell", screamed the smaller of the two figures.
Both the figures were dressed with a bed sheet that had
obviously been painted black and thrown over their heads with
just two tiny holes where the eyes would be. The other figure
then said "whats it gunna be lady, trick or treat?" Jess opened
the door fully now and beckoned them to come inside. "Just
wait here", she said as she ran up the stairs and into the
bathroom where Sal was still combing her hair.
"Sal what should I give those two boys", asked Jess. "I dunno
give them one of those chocolate things near the fridge", Sal
replied. Jess turned and went back down the stairs into the
kitchen to find the bars. "Are you still there boys?", she yelled.
But there was no reply. Jess stopped and went back to the front
door. To her surprise the boys had vanished and there was no
sign of them. Fine she thought to herself at least it saves two
more chocolate bars for me.
Suddenly Jess heard a voice but she didn\'t know what it said
or where it was coming from. "Is somebody there?", Jess
inquired taking a huge gulp at the same time. "Yeah me",
replied the voice in a strong tone. Arggghhhhh Jess screamed
as she saw a tall man bearing a long sharp knife. Jess turned
around and bolted back up the stairs as fast as she could.
"Sal, Sal the...the...theres a huge guy with a knife downstairs",
Jess stuttered. "What are you on about Jess?", replied Sal.
"Im serious Sal there\'s a guy with a knife downstairs and he\'s
\'gunna\' kill us", shrieked Jess as the panic set in. Sal was
begining to get worried now as she tried to think straight.
"Now calm down Jess", Sal said softly, "There are two of us
and only one of him right?," "Right!", replied Jess. "So all we
gotta do is each grab something heavy and go face this guy head
to head", explained Sal. Sal slowly began walking out of the
bathroom and beckoned Jess to follow. The girls now
proceeded along the hall and into Sal\'s room. Sal looked for
her baseball bat while Jess ran to Sal\'s brother\'s room for
something she could use to hit this intruder. She found a golf
club lying under his bed, grabbed it and ran out the room, her
and Sal met just above the stairs. "You ready?", she asked,
"Readier than i\'ll ever be!", Sal replied, not so enthusiasticly.
"OK, here goes!"
The two girls now began to make there way downstairs both
shivering in terror. Suddenly it all got too much and Jess
collapsed and began tumbling down the stairs. She rolled all
the way to the bottom dropped her golf club and then landed flat
on her back motionless.
At that the moment Sal who was standing still in shock
noticed a man enter through the front door and move towards
Jess brandishing a knife and a briefcase. Sal screamed at the
top of her voice "you leave my friend alone you bastard", and
charged towards the man swinging her bat. Sal had a huge
swing but didn\'t actually connect with the man who was now
bent down next to Jess asking her if she was alright.
The man then looked up at Sal and said, "Wow thats some
greeting you two have got there". Sal stopped for a moment
and stared at the man with a confused expression. "Im Tim
Shaw from Demtal Shopping Service and I was wondering
whether you girls were interested in purchasing the one and only
Tasaki meat knife", explained the man. Jess who was now
sitting upright began to chuckle. You mean you arnt some
Psycho here to murder us
