Author's Comment: I wrote this little "horror story" when I was 11. I think this was the only Horror I ever did! Is the drawing too violent? Enjoy! And let me know what you think!
There once were three friends. The youngest was Janey, she was ten. The middle one was Caroline, she was eleven years old. The oldest one was Susan, twelve years of age. Caroline lived with her grandparents. The three girls loved to hang around Caroline’s grandfather because he was fun and made them lots of stories.
One day he told the girls the story of The Black Shadow. A Shadow that comes out at night and eats people! The girls didn’t buy the story but they kept quiet. One day the girls decided to spend the night at Caroline’s house. None of them could sleep so they decided to leave the house and walk in the dark streets of the city to see if they could meet this so-called-Black Shadow. They left the house at 11:00pm. They wanted some time to find it because they thought that perhaps the sun scared the Black Shadow away, if it was real of course.
As the girls walked the streets it began to rain, they started getting nervous when suddenly something stood in front of them! Phew, it was just a fat old lady. This fat old lady kept walking, she went into a dark alley. A few seconds later the girls heard screaming come from that exact dark alley. “The Black Shadow!”-yelled the girls at once. However, phew! False alarm. The old lady had simply tripped and screamed in fear she might fall and hurt her brittle hips. “I guess there’s nothing to be afraid of”-said Susan. They kept walking, again they heard screams. “It probably another false alarm”-said Caroline-“I’ll go check it out”. When she went to the alley were the screams had been heard from Caroline was instantly paralyzed. When the other two noticed something was up with Caroline they went to see if she was o.k and at same moment Caroline could resist no longer. She began screaming in agitation and the Black Shadow ate her.
When Susan and Janey saw this they left running but it was too late: The Black Shadow had taken notice of them and it was after them! Because it was raining and Susan had had the splendid idea of wearing high heels she fell down so the Shadow ate her as well. Janey was wearing sneakers so she was able to run until the sun came up. When this happened Janey realized that the Shadow was not a Shadow but a black monster. As the sun came out the monster melted away. All the people he had eaten, including Susan and Caroline, were slowly being freed as the monster became smaller and smaller and more of his melted blob wasted away. When it stopped melting only a small black creature remained. Janey ran after it and took it for herself since it was helpless now that he had melted. Janey felt sorry for it.
When they finally got home Grandpa asked them: “Where have you been? We were worried.” The girls answered: ”We were looking for the Black Shadow.” Grandpa replied: “You know it’s not real. It’s just a story.”
Author's comment: I was 9 years old when I wrote this one. I wrote it after I had a dream that I was supposed to collect 100 buttons before I turned 15 or I would die! ***BTW I have no idea where I got the name of the store in this story... As a child I was very fond of making up words so I'm pretty sure it's just another made-up word.
There once was a girl named Amelia who had a dress she loved. The print in the fabric of this dress was buttons. This dress inspired her to create an original dress. Her dress would have real buttons sewn to it instead of a print. She didn't have buttons at her house for the dress so she went house-to-house asking for buttons. When her mom found out she got very mad. She scolded her saying: "What are you doing bothering your neighbors? I can take you to a store to buy buttons and thread!". Amelia answered: "O.k mom, you don't have to yell at me". Her mother, Juliet, answered: "Before we go to the store you'll stand in the corner for five minutes, missy". Amelia humbly accepted her punishment.
After five minutes of standing Amelia's mom took her to a store called Telbot to buy the things the girl needed for her dress, buttons and fabric. Amelia chose 100 buttons and three yards of yellow fabric. After they paid for the materials Amelia began running to get to her house quickly. In the process she fell down. Once again her mom scolded her, telling her it was her own fault for being so impatient. When they finally got home Amelia startes sewing like there was no tomorrow. She finished her dress and it came out rather pretty. After looking at the finished product she began sewing the buttons all over the dress.
After she was done sewing all those buttons she showed the dress to her mom and said: "Look mommy, look how pretty my dress is!". Her mom was shocked, she found the dress too extravagant. The next day Amelia put her dress on and went to the park with her mom.
