(I Boom! Bam! Thump!)
Lana Nightstrife shivered as she jumped from the lighting and thunder of the storm, but the thump frightened her worse because it didn’t come from outside. Lana pulled her light blue blanket closer, tighter, around her small shaken frame.
She thought about going down the stairs knowing her legal guardian, her brother, was out at a party. She stood straightening her PJ pants out.
She walked barefooted down the wooden stairs. When she reached the last step she looked around the corner, she gasped inward, right as she looked a black hooded figure snaked around the corner.
Her orange colored eyes had just adjusted to the darkness. She followed quietly but, quickly. She also snaked around the same corner leaving a trail of a black pony tail following.
Her heart was thumping so loud, Lana was sure the hooded figure could hear it. She snaked around another corner, almost hitting a lamp, she caught a glimpse of a metal scythe. She stopped for just a moment as her face was flushed from anxiety. She thought in that moment, making her mind up she took off after the figure.
She forward as the kitchen’s light bled through the swinging door. Can’t be in there… She thought heading towards the study. That’s where she found the hooded figure. She looked directly him as he heard her. She saw his face, or rather, skull. He had a head of a skeleton. She let out a loud scream.
She grabbed the closest thing to her, a cord phone which hung on the wall, and threw it at the figure, but he had disappeared right before it hit the air he was standing in.
She turned quickly, as a figure in black jumped at her.
“BOO!” It screamed Lana let out a terrified scream; her hand flew to her chest as she saw who it was. She looked at the mask than the face behind the mask.
“Alexis,” She said breathing. “What are you doing here?!” She asked scared.
"It’s Halloween, come on you look as if you’ve seen a ghost.” She said giggling as she pulled Lana out of her house.
