The Headless Horror
Once upon a time there were two eighteen year old girls having a sleepover in Maria’s apartment.
“Let’s have a pillow fight!” yelled Natalie.” “No, let’s watch TV.” said Maria”.
“Fine, we can watch TV,” said Natalie. So they decided to watch nature shows. All of a sudden they heard a bang in Maria’s living room. “What was that ?” Natalie said in a scared voice.
“I don’t know,” Maria answered.
In high school they had heard rumors about The Headless Horror going in apartments and homes petrifying you and wrecking things in your home.
” That sounded like my door!” said Maria.
They heard a crash in the living room! It sounded like vases and lamps falling to the floor shattering pieces of glass which ricocheted off the floor.
Maria reached for the phone to call 911, but then the power went out. “What are we going to do now?” whispered Natalie in a petrified voice.
“Get under my bed!” whispered Maria.”
“Get under your bed,” Natalie said, still in a petrified and whispering voice. “Isn’t that the place where most monsters look for their victims?”
“Just do it!” said Maria as she pushed Natalie under the bed following her.
A few seconds later they heard cracking coming from the staircase as a dark shadowy figure, short of a head, walked up the staircase into the guest bedroom. This gave the two girls time to plan how they were going to escape if the Headless Horror walked into the bathroom to search for them. They could run down stairs, out the front doors and drive the car to Maria’s mom’s house and stay there until the police arrived to investigate.
“Try not to scream,” Maria said in a low scared voice.
They watched from under the bed as The Headless Horror walked straight into Maria’s room! Which petrified them to the bone.
Then all of a sudden The Headless Horror looked in Maria’s closet (surprisingly not under the bed) and walked out of the room. This was their chance, so they ran down the stairs, out the front door, into Maria’s car, and drove to her mom’s house.
