The Haunted House
One day in Hartford, Connecticut on All Hollows Eve, 1961 Erin Cogswell was getting her costume ready.
"Mom! Whereís my ribbon?" asked Erin.
"Right down next to me. I was making sure it would fit you. Come down and get it!" her mother answered.
Erinís costume is a fifties girl with a poodle skirt, a white long sleeved shirt with a small poodle on the left shoulder, and her long brown hair is in a pony tail. Erin is ten years old. Erin is going to a Haunted House with her 2 best friends, Katie Web and Jenny Eller.
Just then the phone rang "ring ring"
Erin answered the phone.
"Hello...Oh good, Iím just about ready...all right...good...See you in a few minutes. Bye."
"Who was it Erin?" her mother asked.
"It was Jenny, she said she and Katie were ready. They will be over in a few minutes!" Erin yelled so her mother could hear her.
"Din dong!" rang the doorbell.
"Iíll get it!" yelled Mrs. Cogswell.
"Trick or treat!" Jenny and Katie stated.
"Hereís your treat. Come on in, Erinís in her room."
"Thanks." Katie said.
"Hi guys!" Erin said before they could reach the door, "Ready to go trick or treating?"

They went to 98 houses before they went to the haunted house. They got 5 candies at each house, so they each have 490 candies. The 98th house was their last house except the haunted one which is supposed to be deserted.
They got to the haunted house. They knocked on the door. The door opened all by itself. They got scared. They started walking inside the house. They went into a bedroom.
All of a sudden Jenny saw a man pop out of the bedroom closet quietly. She was about to scream, but he shoved her in the closet in the nick of time.
The man looked like a regular man but he had a huge head full of scars and one green eye and one blue eye. Boy! Was he scary looking.
Then the man snuck over to Katie while Erin was looking out the window. She was about to scream too but the man was smart so he grabbed her mouth and shoved her out the room and into the hall closet under the stairs.
Now all of a sudden something crashed in the kitchen. The man went back to his hiding place.
Now Erin could not see any of her friends. Erin was good at finding people so she found her friends in no time. The girls were about to leave when the man came back. He chased the kids in bedrooms and out up the stairs and in the attic. The man shut the door behind them. Erin knew they were trapped! The man came closer to them and...
32 years later Ashley Well and her family were moving into a house (if your wondering, the haunted house). Later on, Ashleyís parents had to go somewhere. So Ashley decided after they left, to go exploring the house.
The Phone Call
Ashley Well went exploring the house. She went through all the rooms except for the attic. Ashley did not explore the attic because a very strange hunger swept over her, so she went back to the kitchen to get something to eat, she made herself a monstrous sandwich. Thatís when the phone rang.
Ashley answered the phone, "Hello, Oh hi Allison.í Ashley said.
ĎWhat exact house do you live in?" Allison asked.
"I live at 1234 Partridge drive Hartford, Connecticut 06708."
"Oh no your house is supposed to be haunted by 3 people they are all girls our age!"
"I donít believe it! Iíve got to go bye!" Ashley said shocked.
That was when Ashley decided to search the attic just so she knew there were no ghosts. By this time it was 9:00 at night so she knew she would probably see the ghost if there were any.
Ashley thought Allison was only kidding, but she thought she should look any way.
So she went to the attic and opened the door and "A A A A A A A H H H H H H H!" kirplunk Ashley fell to the floor, she had fainted.
