A Halloween story by Sara al Hineidi  5 A It was the night of Halloween. I went into my grandma's attic, where I saw a big chest. When I opened it, I felt something touch my shoulder. I screamed! I was scared. Suddenly, smoke appeared, it frightened me! I tried to leave quickly but the door was locked!  So I tried to calm down and five minutes later, I began to take a look at what was around me  in the attic. I saw a lot of things but the object that caught my attention was my grandmother’s bracelet...  When I touched it, the smoke progressively disappeared. And when I started to see better, I saw a spirit! It was my grandfather’s!  He said to me : "Don't panic, I won’t hurt you. I am just a ghost so I can't catch things. And now, don't tell anyone that you saw me, OK ? Good, now you can leave the attic. Goodbye." I said goodbye to my grandpa and I left the attic. It was incredible to know that he was still alive !

A scary story, by Ada C.

A Scary Story It was on a very cold friday night that this all happened. I went to the basement to take our costumes for the play we’ve been preparing for months.  It was in less than a week now! We were so hyped! I volunteered to stay after school by myself in order to finish our costumes and for that I had to go grab the old costumes to renovate them, from the basement. Since it was in winter the sun was setting early but it was still up when I went down there. There were two small windows that made me able to see what I was doing, I didn’t need artificial light. I looked around for awhile, took everything I Nneeded and went in the halway. I was listening to music on my phone and it was getting dark. At the moment I arrived in front of the door that leads to the staircase, I felt that something was off but I didn’t really think much about it at the moment. I tried opening the door but it wouldn’t open, I tried and tried again, I didn’t know what to do. Suddenly I remembered th

A Night in the Woods, by Arda

Last summer I wanted to go camping so, I bought a tent and all the necessary equipment. The jura seemed like a nice place to me. I arrived towards 5pm and set up camp in a clearing. While looking for a place to settle I found some old battered boots and threw them away. Next morning, I woke up and was astonished to find the previous boots in front of my tent. Even weirder is that when I tried to take a photo of it my camera said it was full even though I had never used it. Not paying much attention to it I got along with my day. That night while I was reading I saw a silhouette coming towards me, it terrified me. Slowly it was approaching the tent and I got my pocket knife as if that would do anything. He was holding a bloody bat with nails on it. My heart was thumping and I was going crazy but then suddenly he left. Hesitant I got out but couldn’t see anything. Still shaky I tried to sleep. The next day I left as soon as I could. Back at home I got my photos developed and

Australian short story by Batuhan Geleri

Short story about Australia: Alone in an arid desert My name is Sacha and I am from England. Last summer, I went to Australia with my friends. While we were travelling to the desert in the middle of the country, we ran out of gas . We walked for hours and hours under the sun in the desert to find some human  presence, to get food and water. When we were so exhausted that we had to stop, a group of strange people came to our help . At first, they looked like savage cannibals but after we got  to know them, we understood that they were an Aboriginal tribe. We lived a very good experience, it was amazing! Finally, a few days later, the Australian authorities found us and a week later,  we flew back to London . From this experience, we still have a souvenir photo .

Story by Deniz Yilmaz

It happened in Melbourne, Australia. I was wandering about, between the skyscrapers. I loved that city : everything was perfect. It was sunny, everybody was happy. I had never been so happy in my life. But at one moment, something happened. Everybody started yelling, I didn’t understand what was going on. I looked up and saw something very big. It was just like a UFO but bigger, not two or three times bigger, more than a  hundred times! It was just like what happens in Marvel or DC films. I was walking thirty seconds before, but then, I didn’t know what to do. In films, everybody was trying to escape, but they were never reaching their objective : to survive. So I didn’t run and I went through the destroyer. I saw women crying with their babies in their arms, I had to save them. I had never seen anything like this in real life. I just stole a jetpack from a store whose door was open and I flew through the UFO. I entered  by an open door and saw plenty of aliens. I attacked all of t

Story by Begüm Hatipoglu

The last thing I remembered was my face hitting the icy cold water as I descended into the dark and terrifying abyss that was the ocean. Minutes after I fell into the water, I could feel my lungs as if they were on fire, the temperature of the water was making me lose all feeling in my limbs. I knew I had to get to the surface, but I was already in too deep. As I helplessly tried to swim back up, my vision started to blur and darken, my lungs were burning and before I knew it I fell into an endless sleep never to wake up again. But that’s not quite where the story begins… I was in Cairns on a dock, waiting for the arms dealer that I had arranged an appointment with. The deal was simple, I’d pay him the 400 grand and he’d give me the package.Naturally, I didn’t trust this guy, he was well-known on the black market for turning on his customers, so I had come prepared; the bullet proof vest did weigh me down and the gun was hard to hide from security, but it was better to be safe than
