Grade VII A – That Hallows Eve
That night was full of silence. Clouds of fog covered the sky. Ben was going towards the cave. Jose, Serena and Amy heard its cry. They hoped that Ben was fine. After a long walk, they found a spooky tomb. The tomb was covered with bones and blood dripped everywhere. Their bones were chilled as they heard a rumor that there is a mummy that comes alive on the day of Hallowseve. Amy was going back as she was so scared but Jose and Serena thought that they should move forward and find Ben. Suddenly they found a clue, it was Ben’s shoe. They decided to open the tomb. As they opened the tomb, out came a black cat. A group of bats started to fly around Amy and she fell down. They decided to hurry towards the road and just then they found that a mummy stood in front of them! But what was that behind this all? Another mummy that stood with a snake slithering over it! They thought their life had come to an end. Shivers crept up their back. Blood froze in their veins. A simple joke became a real trouble for them. Ben had to remove his mask as there was an actual mummy creeping besides them. Nothing came to their minds except running. As they were running, they saw a fire. They knew that mummies are scared of fire. So, they took a log of fire and tried to scare the mummy. And lo! the mummy disappeared. After that, they joined the other kids and started collecting tricks and treats from the elders. They could never forget that Hallowseve.

Grade IX – Explorers
It was a moonless night and Ben was alone in the darkness. Then he saw a mask near a spooky tree. As he was going to fetch the mask he discovered a gigantic cave. Inside the cave he found some bones lying there. As he explored the cave he heard a man laughing. He suddenly noticed some skulls lying behind a rock. While looking at bones and skulls he came across Amy. Amy was a short girl who got frightened upon seeing Ben and so she started screaming. Ben noticed something very strange about Amy. She was covered in white tape and looked very scary. Looking at Amy he just ran back and then he saw the same mask which was on the tree. This time Harias decided to investigate the mask and picked it up. As Ben bent down to pick up the mask, he noticed that there was a tomb behind the rocks and it wasn’t any normal tomb, it was a tomb for Mummies!
When Ben opened the tomb he found himself falling inside it. Suddenly , inside the tomb, the mummy opened its eyes and grabbed Ben by his hand. To his surprise, Ben started crying. He begged the mummy to leave his hand which had started feeling very hot at the spot where the mummy held him. Then Ben took a bone and freed himself and ran out of the cave.
As he was running, trying to catch his breath, he heard children laughing and singing from the cave- “Shadows stretch across the street monsters lurching to TRICK OR TREAT!” And that’s when he realised that he had been tricked on Halloween night.
