The Dolls In The loft

Extracts from this document...


Laura McIntyre The Dolls In The loft The door lay open. The shadow drew closer. Amy could see something or someone lurking by the old abandoned rocking horse. She could see the rocking horse moving slightly from side to side, but she was not sure if it was a draught or just her imagination. Amy had been babysitting her cousin one night when she heard noises coming from the loft. At first she was too scared to go and see what it was, but after a while the noise started to become unbearable. It sounded as if there was a meeting going on in the loft because every five minutes she was disturbed by what sounded like the screeching of chairs, but Amy knew that there were no chairs up the loft as she was always going up there as a child. She used to make a castle out of all the boxes and then she would sit and play in it with her dolls. ...read more.


She could hear her little cousin crying. Amy knew that whenever Emma started to cry it would take her about half an hour to get her to stop, so Amy reached out her hand and pulled the curtain open. There was nothing there but a tree. Amy could still hear Emma crying so she let her watch a video in her room for ten minutes. Amy was down stairs when she heard laughing and talking coming from upstairs. She thought it would probably be Emma's video but she was told to switch it off half an hour ago, so Amy went up stairs to see. She quietly opened Emma's bedroom door and looked in. Emma was fast asleep and the television was switched off, so she quickly shut the door again. Amy then decided to check the loft again. She was not scared this time, she just opened the door and walked in. She had a look around and everything looked the way it normally would look. ...read more.


Then she heard someone say "Its time for us to go now, but we will be back." She quickly turned round and walked over to the castle of boxes. She looked inside. The dolls were still there. One of them winked at her and then the rest of them burst out laughing, but luckily for her as soon as her aunt rang the door bell the loft door flew open. Amy then ran out of the loft and ran down the stairs as fast as she could. Her aunt wondered why she was in such a hurry to get home but Amy just said she had homework to do. Amy then ran out the house into the garden. She then paused, turned round and looked up at the loft window. She could see shadows moving about, but as soon as Amy saw that she ran as fast as she could home. After that Amy never set foot in her aunt's house again. Whenever she was asked to baby-sit or her family were invited to dinner, she would always say she was not feeling very well. Amy had not seen the dolls since and hopes she never will. ...read more.
