The boy drove back to the farm as fast as he could and told his grandfather what happened. “Give me the truck,” he begged. “I’ll go to the city. He’ll never find me there.”
His grandfather gave him the truck, and the boy sped away. After he left, his grandfather went into town looking for Death. When he found him, he asked: “Why did you frighten my grandson that way? He was only sixteen. He is too young to die.
“I am sorry about that,” said Death. “I did not mean to beckon him. But I was surprised to see him here. You see, I have an appointment with him this afternoon – in the city.”
The Weird Figure
In my house I have a basement and there is this storage room but its like really scary and dark. So I had this dream where me and my brother and sis and mom were going downstairs. I was the first one to go down. All of a sudden I go down and I see the doorknob turn and it keeps on going round and round. So then I call my mom. She goes down and all of a sudden the door opens. We see this weird figure like a man or something! So then for some reason my mom keeps saying, “No no no no no no.” Then I ran upstairs and she stayed down there! Then I woke and almost cried. That night I was sleeping in my mom’s room, so I woke her up and told her the whole thing. I was really scared!
The Little White Dog
Once there was a woman. She had a little white dog. She had the dog because she had no family left and she hated being alone! It was winter, and at night the dog would sit by the fire place watching the fire place and wagging its tail. At night, if the woman ever got frightened or scared, she would hang her hand down by the dog where it was sleeping and the dog would lick it reassuringly, that made her feel safe.
One night, the woman was reading an article in the newspaper, the article was saying that a mental patient had escaped from the hospital and was out to kill women that lived alone! The woman got scared so she put the paper on her night stand, turned off the lamp, and tried to go to sleep. She put her hand by the dog and she felt the licking. Now, because she wasn’t all the way asleep, she opened her eyes for a split second and saw the dog by the fire place… but the most scariest part about it was… that something was still licking her hand.
