I got up in the middle of the night gasping. I heard a creak in my closet. Was it some ghastly monster lurking in the dark? I stepped out of my bed. I had the courage to step inside the dark closet. When I went inside, the door closed behind me. My heart just came into my throat. There was a scroll yellowed with age. Its title was 'The Night of Doom'. I thought that this was a prank by my little brother Karan. He keeps scaring me everyday and if this was a prank I would reveal his secret that he goes for movies everyday without asking mom.
I opened the dull looking scroll with some cobwebs hanging on to it. On the first page it read “You read the following spell at your own risk. “
I definitely thought that this was a prank by my brother. I turned the page; there it was written : “If you read this all aloud you have to run all about. The thing is gonna come next to you , you better be ready too. It has three heads but one brain and can kill people again and again.”
A second after I read this, slime fell on me from the roof and I looked up ...there it were two gigantic eyes staring right at me. They were red in color with huge black pupils!. I tried to run out but the door wouldn’t budge! My heart was thumping really badly. I ran toward the walls but...There were no walls! I ran continuously into the dark. Then I heard a ringing sound in my ear . I screamed as the monster was coming closer and got up with a start as my Alarm was Ringing!
