INTO THE DARK NIGHT

Prank

INTO THE DARK NIGHT

Follow me along the cobbled road.

Shadows lurk and float on by.

Hurry, catch up before I grow old.

Winged creatures fill the night sky.

My high heels click against the cobbled stones.

This way to the oldest building in town.

Take care not to step on any bones.

Curve your mouth to remove that awful frown.

Up the steps, we go.

Please walk through the open door.

Is he friend or foe?

Multiple heads hint at more.

Growls fill the still air.

Darkness permeates the long room.

Reaching hands grow near.

A woman flies by on a broom.

“Surprise” is shouted by all.

Lights shine brightly in our faces.

Enters a man ten feet tall.

Standing high on metal braces.

He holds a cake rimmed with black bats.

The audience quiets to a hush.

My friends approach in party hats.

They sing to me as I hide a blush.

“Happy Halloween” and “Happy Birthday”

Become “Happy Hallowday.”

As I bow my head and enjoy my day.

A prank I must soon repay.

TRAPPED IN THE BASEMENT

basement

 

A house in a run-down area.

I’m on the outside looking in.

No lights.

No signs of life.

Noises emanate from other houses in the area.

But this house is quiet.

A note has been left for me.

From someone trapped inside.

My friends are too afraid to join me.

I go alone.

I enter the house.

The rooms are empty shells.

I open the basement door.

A rotting smell greets me from below.

I’m not going in. 

I’m out of here.

I’m pushed from behind.

Down the steps I fall

to the hard basement floor.

I look up.

A light filters in from the open door.

Then the door slams shut.

I’m left in the dark.

I try to stand up.

My arms touches something soft.

A shaft of light from a high window

highlights a man’s trousered leg.

A body lies before me.

One that isn’t moving or breathing.

Something is wrong. 

He has no head.

Shadows rise up from the ground.

I run to the stairs.

A hand catches my foot,

pulling me back into the darkness.

I scream.

The shadows lurch at me.

I reach out and my fingers find a crow bar.

I throw it at a tall shadow.

It goes down and cries,

“Stop, please stop.”

The light turns on. 

I look around.

I’m looking at a room full of zombies. 

The one I hit is sitting on the floor,

holding his head.

One zombie walks toward me.

He takes off his mask.

A boy from school was facing me.

“What’s going on?” I ask him.

“It is supposed to be a fun prank. 

No one is supposed to get hurt. 

It’s Halloween.”

“The prank is on me?” 

“Yes, I’m sorry. 

No one else was brave enough to join you.

But if you agree to be my date to the Halloween dance, 

then it wouldn’t have been for nothing.”

“You’re kidding.” I say.

“No, I’m serious. 

We’d be great together.”

He looks at me with his big blue eyes and I’m lost.

“I don’t even know your name.”

“My name is Brian and you’re Annie.”

“Hi Brian. I guess it’s a date.”

Why does the most popular boy in school want me?

Is there more to this prank that I don’t know about?

We are lost in End House!

We came to the party with our friends.

We were attacked by circular saws and pointy cages

descending from the basement ceiling.

We made it through the traps to the other side

of the basement.

A door opened in the wall and we ran through.

We don’t know where we are.

Where are our friends?

All we hear are moans, all we see is darkness,

and all we can feel is coldness.

Someone please help us!

The town’s lost friends—another evil game of The Dead.

Why is no one waiting for us?We were invited to a party at End House.

But the house is deserted.

No host is waiting to welcome us.

There are no guests other than us.

What should we do?

Should we leave?

Or should we stay and search the house?

Is this a game?

Are we in one of the deadly games

played by The Dead?
