This is just a story I been writing for Halloween so enjoy!

It all started when I went to school. It was the first day of 8th grade and I was going to my 1st hour class. Then I saw him. His name is Jack. He's an orphan but nobody knows what happened to his parents. when I went to class he stared at me with his big smile. Class is over and I gathered all my stuff. I walked past him in the hallways. He smiled at me so wide you can see all his teeth, he gave me a wave. Some people made rumors about him. One of them were that if he smiles at you, he will find you and hunt you down. And this time he was smiling at me. In class I was sitting down at my seat. I turned and looked out the window and saw that it was raining outside like snow in winter. I looked the other way and saw Jack staring at me with his big smile. Chills went through my spine every time I looked at him.

When it was time to go to my 3rd hour class he left me a note on the desk. I never opened it though. I just left it in my pocket. School was over and I was about to leave school when suddenly I feel breaths on the back of my neck so then I turned around and he was right there in front of me. He gave me one of his smiles and whispered "you better go home, I have a surprise for you" and with that he left.

School was over and I was getting my stuff from my locker until I found a bloody knife and a picture of my mom in my locker. I ran to my house. Heart pounding fast as I opened the door. It was dark but the light shining from the window. I went up stairs and I couldn't hear anything but the creaking steps. I went to my moms room and I opened the door. She wasn't there but what was there was a dark red stain in the carpet coming from my moms closet. I walked to the closet, my heart beating fast when I opened the closet. My breath pitched, tears coming out of my eyes like rain in a stormy night. I went downstairs and went outside and ran and ran and ran until I couldn't run no more.

I looked around where I stopped and realized that I was at the middle of the woods. I didn't know where to go so I just walked straight and looked around. I felt something in my pocket. So I got the thing that was bothering me out of my pocket to see what it was and it was a note from Jack. I opened it up and chills went through my spine. I threw it away and just kept walking and thinking about what he meant in the note.Then I heard footsteps from the back of me getting closer and closer each time I took a step. When I turned around I saw him. He was only 5 feet away from me, smiling, and breathing very, very slowly. His sweater covered in dark red stains. I was so focused at his appearance that I didn't know he was coming closer. Finally I snapped out at my gazed and realized he was just only 4 inches away from me. I screamed but what only came of the scream was a whimper. Then I started running far away from him as possible.

I ran up a hill but o only see that it was actually a cliff. When I turned over he was there getting closer and I taking steps farther away from him. Then I was at the tip of the hill, balancing so I wouldn't fall. I couldn't do anything. The only thing I could do was stand there shaking. He kept walking up too me until we were 2 inches apart. I was shaking so hard it felt like if there was an earthquake. Then I loss my balance and fell but quickly grabbed the tip of the cliff. Then jack came over, crouched down and whispered " I'll see you again" and with that he left.
