It was a gloomy, damp and stormy night. It was the type of hour when nobody is awake. Except the midnight walkers. The Midnight Walkers are a colony of ghosts who scream and howl at the moon. They did this because the were scared of light. They have eyes the blackest of black. Hair longer than anyone could imagine. And hands slim – pretty much made of bone!
At this time only two ordinary people lay awake. There names are Thomas and Martha. Now Thomas has a huge sense of humour, he pretty much laughs at everything. Martha however is quite a shy person who prefers to be left alone, get busy studying and read novels. They both faced each other. Eye on eye. As if knowing what was going on in each other’s brains. At that moment they both nodded and immediately stood up. Still they stared at each other. Martha’s brows raising each second. Thomas’s ears twitching in a beckoning way. They then stepped forward into the moonlight’s wake. The light so bright it dazzled their eyes.
Then out of the blue something came into view. Something with bony hands and hair longer than long. Could this be a Midnight Walker? Thomas grasped his mouth forcing it to close. Martha’s head tilting as she shivered. There was a sudden urge telling them to scream. But their mouths weren’t letting a single noise come out. Suddenly the thing disappeared into thin air and all became dark. It felt to them like happiness had been sucked away from them and nobody would ever be joyful or happy ever, EVER again…
Thomas and Martha ventured onward to the bathroom and stared into a mirror. The mirror was slightly cracked and steamed up in the most unwelcoming way. At that moment there were not two shadows but three and a face appeared in the mirror! It had eyes of midnight black, hair the longest of long and bony arms! This had to be a Midnight Walker. The Midnight walker than let out the loudest most deafening scream ever heard causing Thomas and Martha to cover their ears in despair. At that moment Thomas ran into their room and grabbed a torch.
Then heroically he ran in and turned on the torch and all of a sudden the Midnight Walker vanished and all that was left was a pile of coal like dust.
Would they EVER make it out alive?
