My Horror Story

Extracts from this document...


My Horror Story As the sun rose, it lit up the blood red sky, which reminded me of the tragic events that happened here not that long ago . . . . . . Across the rolling hills, an evenly distributed layer of shimmering crystals made my insides shiver with delight as I looked down upon the picturesque scene. Hi, my name is Nicholas Nickleby. At the moment I live in Haudington Vale, which is a small town in the Yorkshire Moors. Normally a calm, peaceful, secluded village, but ever since the "incident" it has become extremely infamous. I loved this village before, and continue to like it now, except for when I look out onto the fields remembering the disturbing images that still haunt my mind persistently.

However, on this particular evening the atmosphere was extremely eerie, but I couldn't put my finger on the cause. My head was still buzzing like a bee, questions flying around my head, wondering whatever happened to that blazing willow tree. This was the point when I finally made the decision to go up into the hills again to try and solve the mystery of what happened. It took me a quite a while to find the exact spot where I was before, as it was pitch black now, and my only light source was the dimmed light coming from my ancient touch. What I saw was unnatural.
