The Mask of Fear Janie was just a child when it first happened. Her family lived in a rural neighbourhood called Haspin. It was in the state of Colorado. Mountains surrounded the town and there was only one road in and out. This road led to a highway which led into other towns. Janie's family were asleep in the bedrooms upstairs. She was just a baby. She was just two years old when it happened... She awoke to a loud crash, which could only be believed to be the screen door on the back of the house. Maybe it was just her father coming in from work, or maybe it was an intruder. The intruder went up the stairs and with an axe, walked into the first bedroom where her two sisters slept.

The sound of her aunts cries still ringing through her head. Bang. Her bedroom door burst open followed by the sound of footsteps slowly approaching her. The closet doors opened and the officer stared into Janie's eyes. They were just black holes waiting to suck everything in, and the clown mask she once feared covered her face as if she was ashamed. Janie was drenched in her aunt's blood. "Come with me." "NO." Janie lashed out in rage and knocked down the officer. She then sped off into the darkness with the all feared clown mask still covering her unforgiving and unforgettable face. She was never seen again by anyone again. ...read more.
