                                                                                Part One: Schools a Fright!


     Running through the field is so corny! I’ve seen it in too many movies! For a Boy my age, all we care about is getting through High School! My name is Mark ,and this is the story of how I met a ghost! As you see now is me watching movies while munching on some popcorn! Let’s see what we get from here! When I get up off the couch I thought I heard a cry for help in the distance. I continued on out the door heading for school, but then I heard it again! It was very faint and I thought someone was in trouble! Then it said Help Me! I Have Not Much Time. Then the noises stopped, I dashed for school while still thinking of where that noise could have came from! When I reached the school three of my closest friends were there to greet me! There Was, Zoe a sort of Sporty yet still loved to watch some zombie horror styled films! Then there’s is Ellie (HE IS A GUY) He loves Video games and He’s never too far to help you out! Last But not least we have Nick, A Jock with a very sneer sense of attitude! When we walk down the hall we just engage in ordinary Chit-Chatter, As we walk into home base we realise everyone’s gone, Zoe said that there is a meeting in the gym. We all rush for the gym, When we enter we find a spot to sit in and we watch the speeches given. Then suddenly, The lights flickered on and off until the lights started breaking and everyone was running out of the room like crazy! People pushed me to the floor and as I got up I saw my friends motioning me towards the door but the doors automatically shut and locked! I was stuck in a room filled with darkness! Then a sudden glow appeared in the corner. To stay safe I picked up a heavy chair and headed to the corner. When I reached the corner I saw the light, But it was submerged in a shadow! I regained consciousness of the things I had and realised I had a flashlight in my back pocket! I whipped it out and Turned it on… I stopped, To frightened to move! Deep in the Shadow was a little Boy, But this was no ordinary boy. He was a ghost! The Boy stood up and eerily walked towards me, Stumbling around trying to walk. He let out a vivid sound of pain and the words came out “Help Me. Not Much Time, The Abandoned Church Shows Answers!” Then the Little boy vanished into a cloud. The doors unlocked and somehow the broken lights produced a bright shine, Igniting the room with bright rays of light! My Friends ran into the room to see if I was ok. They asked me what happened and all I said was, Tonight we are going to the church!


                                                                                               Part Two : The Church


     Five O’clock we headed out for the church to find out the mystery of the Little Boy. When we reached the Abandoned Church all we saw were papers and trash everywhere. Zoe says that this place hasn’t been visited since 1962! I asked her how she knew this. Zoe said that it had something to do with an incident, It turns out a Boy went missing here and was never found! We kicked the door open knowing it was probably stuck! As we enter all the sounds of wood breaking and deadly screams fills the room. Zoe clings onto me tightly, Frightened to move I turn on the flashlight to see a Broken piece of wood leading into a hole dug down way deep. To my surprise in the Whole lays the Ghost! Sobbing so much that It was so hard bare. Then he saw me and says “All Grows Near As One” Then he vanishes away into the ground. Zoe says she heard that quote before it meant “Stay Close Or be Lost the Lost one” We all stayed in one tiny group just looking around. Nick pointed out a dusty ladder, So we all climbed it. First Zoe, Then Ellie, Then Nick, And then Me!  Before that happened the ladder snapped trapping me downwards I hit the ground and immediately got back up and stacked some old furniture on top of each other and climbed up that and being saved by my friends. Then we see the ghost on a beam. He is balancing on it when suddenly it snaps having his body hit the monastery and him rolling into the pit. I said that must be what he is talking about. As we all rush down to the pit we see the boy one more time “this is my home, I haunt the Land for my body was never found. I live here all alone for body is in the ground! But if you reveal my body, I can rest and be free!” He vanishes with a dust cloud. We dig into the pit trying to find whats down there. Suddenly Zoe finds a stuffed Blue teddy bear in the mess of dirt. She thinks it must have been the boys. As we continue digging we struck something hard, then suddenly Lights start beaming forward and shooting past one by one. Then we are all hit by one of them. The boys Body was uncovered and he was able to rest. Before he disappeared he said “Soon a Reward will do you done, I hope to see you in another sun!” He fades away… We called the police to bury the body in the cemetery next to his family. as for us we all continued our lives until something happened to us. The beams of light that hit us created a new land that we see. My friends were all here with me and we all have a massive headache. As we look around we are in a peaceful meadow with little animals scurrying about. Then we see the Little boy, This time he looked human. He ran up to us and hugged us while he was saying “I’ve been put to rest that means I can finally be free! the kind act you did was amazing, I knew you could do it! My name’s Troy by the way. I was going on a walk when I stumbled upon this church and I was never seen again! Thanks anyways.” Then I woke up for real, In my bedroom with nothing suspicious going on. I head downstairs for an awesome weekend. “Boy Wait till the people At school hear about this!”
