Moving In and The Unbelievable horrorIt's been awhile since I have had friends.I'm finally turning 13 years old, I've. Just moved into a new town called Goldfinch. It's been pretty nice so far, nothing to harsh just another crowded and beautiful town. I had to move here because my Dad finally got a permotion.He works as some type of business person, And my mom is a lawyer. I don't pay much attention to that stuff, And to me switching schools and unpacking is allot for a young girl like myself. I'm starting school on Tuesday, so much for time off. "
Alice", Alice's. Mom calls. It's almost time for dinner. OK mother. Alice yells down. As I quickly get ready for dinner, my eye sets on a book behind my dresser, I try to push my dresser out of the way, but there's no use. Alice's. Mom calls again. Alice time for dinner. So I leave the book be, walking out my room to go down stairs for dinner. As I make my way to the table my mother ask's me "Are you doing OK so far with the moving thing". And of course I say "Yes mom, thanks for asking". And as soon as I finished my sentence A big crash comes from upstairs.Me and my mom quickly run upstairs to see what happened and coming to find out my dresser fell forward, leaving the class scattered on the floor in a million pieces.
My mom looks amazed and stund at the same time. And so she says. Alice you think this is some type of joke, to do that with your dresser. But mom it wasn't me!!Ask I yell. You can explain yourself after you clean up this mess.My mom says as she walks back downstairs, and I rudely slaim the door behind her.And as I'm picking up the pieces of glass I see the book laying on the floor behind the dresser. So I stop what I'm doing and go over to the dusty old gray book and pick it up. And on the cover of the book it said "Wooded". I didn't know what to say so I just opened the book with a curious look on my face. And when I started to read the first two sentences it started to talk about "The thing that wonders my house. The thing that watches my every move".
It started to creep me out how it was put into words, it made me want to keep on reading it. So I turned the pages and saw a huge circle with what look liked a face kinda. It spooked me a little because I was thinking to-myself how does this old looking book end up behind my dresser and having the most unbelievable oder. It was odd and mysterious.at the same time. I didn't know what to do. So I just threw it onto my desk and left it there for a little while.
The next morning I got dressed and went for a walk outside in my backyard to explore my new inviroment. And I stumbled over a tree that had a sign on it. It had a circle with an x through it. I didn't pay it no mind. So I started walking into the forest, unwair what might happen, because I haven't really seen anybody go in the forest or come back out. So I decided to see for myself what it looks like inside. So as I was walking I could hear the birds churping and and sound the wind was making when it blew the trees side to side, and also my foot steps crunching into the leaves as I walk. But I started hearing extra crunching noises as I walked.. so I picked up the maste, and SO DID THE EXTRA NOISES. And my clumsy self triped over a tree branch. And when I turned around it was a man running in the forest doing his exursizes. I felt so silly, I started thinking something was watching and following me. I started giggling. To myself thinking what just happened. So I went home. And my mom left a note on the table saying "Went to the store I'll be back in a hour or two.
I thought that gave me enough time to watch my favorite movies downstairs before my mom took over the TV. So as I sat down, I felt this weird tingle in my stomach. I ignored it the first time but it happened again and Again. So I went to get some medicine in the kitchen and right when I got up there was a Nock on the door. So when I went to go answer it.....no one was there. I was thinking in my head (stupid kids, playing ding doing dich) As I started to walk back to the kitchen the back door was open. Even thow I thought I locked it. I raised my voice saying "WHO'S THERE!!" No one answered, so I closed the door and went to get some medicine. And when I went to lay back down the front door was open! Things started to get weird. So i closed the door again and right when the door was jalf way closed a foot stopped the door and puched its way through. Coming to find out it was just my mom with a bag full of food. My heart felt like it skipt a beat. And my mom said. "Alice are you going to get the food to" yes mom. Im going.
When me and my mom finished bringing in the food. I went up to my room to read that gray book i found. I went back to where i stoped at and started to read more in and hour passed and i was in the middle of the book sucking in all the informarion about what this person was writing about. I started getting tired and stopped and left the book open to where I was reading and hopped into bed and started to fall asleep. As I was falling asleep I thought I felt something touch my face, but I just brushed it off and fell back to sleep. But it happened again and this time it dragged me down toward the end of my bed. That's when I quickly stood up with a fright. And on my foggy window something wrote "Times up". I screamed as loud as I could and my father came rushing into my room panicking. And I said "THERE'S SOMETHING. IN MY WINDOW" but when he looked nothing was there.
The following morning I dicided to go back walking in the forest, I went by the same symble in the tree but when I went back into the forest it was 7:48 pm. And while I was walking I felt the most strange feeling in my stomach that wanted me to stop,but I kept going. Soon after that my vision got blury. And while I was almost to the half way mark into the forest I herd the most loudest scream I could ever here coming from my house. So I started running back toward the house and I saw blood trails leading out into the other side of the forest. As I was rushing into the house ere was this man wearing a blue jacket with a mask on saying "Your time is up". As I was standing there trying not to throw up because my parents guts and blood were all over the floor, the big tall man took me by my neck and started to cut my side, I screamed so loud you could here it a yard away. As I was trying to get loose from his grip he spun me around to the front door. So I kicked as hard as I could toward his chest, he let go trying to get air. As he was trying to grab me back I ran so fast out the door I felt like I was running track.
