Describe a haunted house.

Extracts from this document...


DESCRIBE A HAUNTED HOUSE Number 9 deadly street - the place of tears, fright and fears! Anyone that walks into this place never walks back out, and that's all we know about this deserted land. It was Saturday 17th July, the day my life changed, and the sun was shining beautifully. I looked all around me and saw nature's beauty showing off its magnificent colours. I was nearing deadly street when I saw a change in nature; the sky began to turn grey and not long later did it begin to threaten all that was beneath it with its impenetrable lightning. The gates of 9 deadly street shot open giving me a sudden shock. I was scared, frightened, horrified and I had no idea what to do. As I dealt with the fear in my head, I felt something pulling me towards the house - Was it my curiosity? Was it the house? Or was it something else?-I really did not know. I was at the door of the house, as I lifted my finger towards the doorbell I heard a shriek from inside the house. ...read more.


I felt sick. Making sure my feet would not touch the corpses or skeletons, I continued my ghastly journey. All that was in sight was a damp, old looking door at the far end of the room, so I began to walk towards it. Hesitantly reaching for the handle my hands began to quiver; my heart beat faster and then, at that particular moment... I sensed it - something was following me. My body was being overwhelmed by fear, it became harder for me to breathe and hoping to find an exit I grabbed the handle. I jumped with fear when something grabbed onto my right leg. I swallowed and felt sweat drip down the side of my face. I could not stop shaking then slowly bowing my head, while trying not to move the rest of my body; I saw a wounded hand with a firm grip on my leg. Something tells me it was a sign that walking further would mean entering a realm of impending doom. ...read more.


Why did I enter those gates? Why can't I be at home?" Hoping this was all a dream, I shut my eyes and tried to fill up with joy and happiness and tried to make myself believe that the house was not real, but as many times as I attempted this I felt all the fear rush back. "Aaaaaaaaaaaah"...there it was again my eyes shot open and I was certain this was real! The screams were excruciating and all the walls began to grow closer and closer until it was hard to breathe. I am still in this house and I can feel all the fear rushing back to me. My heart is racing, my sight is blurred, I have lost my sense of hearing and I am running up and down (I am panicking).what do I do? All the doors are closing and they are blocking all the possible exits, I feel like I am being held captive. The corpses are regaining life and I fear what will happen next... ?? ?? ?? ??
