Creative story the dark house

Creative Story: The Dark House

by Tom-Inge

Earlier today, John and I were taking a walk in the outskirts of the town,

when we saw an old house on top of a hill. I wanted to take a closer look at it,

but John looked a little spooked, and mumbled something about not wanting to go

there. I convinced him that there was nothing to be afraid of, it's just an old

house which haven't been occupied for a while, though I wasn't sure whether

someone really was living there. We walked up the driveway, up to the house. It

was huge. The place looked deserted, the grass wasn't mowed for ages, and

everything was a mess. John chew nails like crazy, but I still wanted to check

this place out.

The door was made of wood, and looked like it could fall apart any minute.

I tried to turn the door knob, but it fell off as soon as I touched it. The knob

rolled down the steps and kept on rolling down the driveway, and stopped by the

fence. That didn't make John feel any better at all. He looked like he had seen

a ghost. I took a deep breath, and pushed the door. It wouldn't budge an inch. «

Help me out», I said, but John kept chewing his nails. God knows why, there was

nothing to be scared of. Or was it? I took a step backwards, and then kicked the

door. It slowly slid open, and I went inside. «Wow! What a huge mansion we've

got here!» John took a peek into the house, but didn't dare go inside.

There was a huge hall in the middle of the house, with staircases to my left

and right. I went right ahead, towards a glass door in front of me. It wasn't

locked, so I carefully turned the knob, and the door opened. Suddenly I felt

someone touch my shoulder. I turned around immediately to see, but there was

nobody there. «Probably just my imagination», I said to myself, and went on into

the room.

It was a lounge, with some impressive furniture, antiques and other objects.

It was a lot to look at, and I yelled for John. He didn't reply, so I went to

check on him. All I found outside the house was a shoe, and his necklace. I

couldn't quite understand what was going on. If he'd run away, at least he'd

taken his belongings with him. The door slammed shut behind me, and my heart

stopped for a second or two. I turned, and again there was nobody there. All I

could hear, was the breeze in the trees nearby, and a helicopter flying over the

town. I admit I was a bit spooked myself now, and felt like running away, but I

was fascinated by this old house, and wanted to explore it.

I turned around and went inside again, the door wasn't locked this time. I

went up the staircase, and into a bedroom. I should never have done that. On the

bed lay John, without his shoe or necklace, completely pale in his face, dead. I

started crying, wishing that we'd never entered this house in the first place. A

cold breeze made me stop crying, and to swear revenge upon whoever that did this

to my friend. Outside the room I spotted something floating in the air, in the

hall. It was transparent, I could see through it. It floated closer to me, and I

started running away, down the stairs and towards the door leading outside. But

it was locked. «I'm doomed», I thought, and stood still. As I looked to my left,

I saw a window, big enough for me to climb through. I ran over there, knowing

that the floating thing was following me. The window was in a kitchen, and in

one corner I saw a little white furry thing with long ears. I looked behind me,

the floating thing had stopped in the hall. I picked up the bunny, but when it

turned around, I could see its long, bloodstained teeth, and its red eyes,

staring at me. I couldn't move, I panicked. The bunny jumped and bit my arm, my

god it was painful, and the blood started running, dripping on the floor. I

kicked the bunny, it flew towards the hall, and then I broke the window with my

shoe. But something kept me back. I had sworn revenge, so I couldn't leave this

house until I had eliminated the creature which had killed John. I turned, the

bunny came running towards me, and I grabbed a knife to fight it off with. I

waved the knife around, trying to stab the bunny to death, and managed to do so

after having been bit way too many times in my legs. The kitchen didn't contain

any form of bandages, so I started searching around the house, carrying the

bloody knife with me.

At last I found the bathroom, and some bandages to put on my wounds, but

suddenly someone turned off the lights. I got terrified, and walked around as

blind as a bat. I felt someone touching me again, and ran as fast as I could in

a random direction, until I hit my head in something and fainted. When I woke up

again, I felt pain in my right leg. When I looked, I saw the furry little white

thing chewing on my leg. I grabbed a pot plant, and smashed it into the rabbit,

which fell lifeless to the floor. I picked up the rabbit, and walked towards a


I was now in the hall, and I saw the floating thing downstairs, near the

kitchen. The bunny started to move, and I quickly threw it over the railing. It

hit the thing down there, and they melted together into a green slimy mass. The

green stuff began crawling up the staircase, and towards me. My feet ached so

much, I couldn't run, so I picked up my knife from the floor and prepared to

fight it. I slashed the knife into the monster, but nothing happened. I tried

several times, but of no use. I climbed over the railing, and lowered myself by

my arms down to the floor below. The green mass followed. I walked towards the

kitchen, but it was hard to see anything in the dark. Some light came in through

the windows, though. I searched the room roughly, and found a fork, a bottle,

some broken glass which I cut my finger on, and a flashlight. I turned on the

flashlight and looked around. I found some kerosene, and put it in the empty

bottle I found, and then tore a piece of cloth from my shirt and stuffed into

the bottle. The Molotov cocktail was ready for use. I lurched upon the creature,

and when I was close enough, I lit the cloth with my lighter, and threw the

cocktail at the green slime. The monster burned for quite a while, and soon it

was nothing left but ashes. I went up to the bedroom where John was, and I

fainted when I saw him get out of bed all by himself.

When I awakened, I noticed that I was lying on the ground outside the house.

John said that we'd better get as far away from this house as possible. I tried

to get on my feet, but I just fell on the ground again. John helped me get to

the railway station, and bought me a ticket. He had to go home, so he couldn't

join me. Now I am sitting here in a couch, riding as far away from that spooky

place as I can, but my legs are still aching. And what is that furry little

creature in the corner of the couch?
