It Happened


It was supposed to be a night of fun

Chapter 1

Chapter 1:
Tracy Morris was at her locker putting
 her books away.
When her best friend Emily Reed walked up
 from behind her and asked
“So, what time do I pick you up tonight?”
“Ouch!” Damn it Em!”
You just scared the hell out of me!”
 Tracy cried out rubbing her finger
“Sorry, are you okay?”
 Emily asked trying not to laugh
“Oh, yah sure, thanks, and by the way it’s a
 new habit of mines.”
 To smash my finger inside my locker
 before going to class”
 I strongly suggest that you try it,”
 Tracy smirked
“Wow! Was that humor?”
 So, what time do I pick you up?”
Emily repeated
“Pick me up for what?” Tracy frowned
“What do you mean for what?”
“Don’t tell me that you forgot that tonight was the
 big Halloween party up at Crystal Lake?”
“You’re going right?”  Emily frowned back
“Oh that, sorry; but I’ve to babysit--” Tracy began
 Please tell me that you’re kidding?”
 if you don’t go, you know that slut Mandy
will be all over Dave.” Emily interrupted.
“And don’t give me that bull about
having to babysit.
 “Oh wait!”
 don’t tell me you of all people are scared of
Crystal Lake?”
 She added in a spooky tone of voice.
Tracy suddenly gasped
“Oh my god!”
 You just uncovered my darkest secret!”
“Yes Emily, I’m terrified of Crystal Lake,
 and clowns!”
 give me a serious break,
I just don’t feel like going that’s all.” 
“Oh, come on Trac,
 I swear if you don’t go I’ll never talk to you
 ever again!”
 Emily pouted
“Okay, okay you win I’ll go!”
 to the stupid party, happy now?”
 Tracy sighed
“Very, now hurry up!”
 We’re going to be late for homeroom.”
 Emily smiled

Chapter 2

Chapter 2:
Later that night Tracy was adding the final touches
 to her witch’s costume.
When she heard Emily honk,
 she ran downstairs and yelled out
“Mom, I’m leaving!”
“Okay, have a good time and be home
 by one!”
 Her mother yelled out from the kitchen
“Hey!” Look what I got!”
 Emily smiled once Tracy got into her car
Rolling her eye, she asked Emily
“Cute, how old are you again?”
 while staring at the glory hand that
when Emily pressed a
button it slowly moved back and forth
And as they drove off
 for the party, Tracy had a funny feeling
 in the pit of her stomach.
That this would be the last Halloween,
 that they’d ever spent together
“I hope that I’m wrong,”
 She thought to herself staring out the window.
 While listening to Emily go on and on
 about who
 was going to be there with who
Thirty minutes later Emily opened her
 car door.
 She was about to get out when she noticed
 that Tracy hadn’t moved.
She was just sitting there staring at the lake
“Umm Trac, are you getting out or
 are you just planning to sit in the car.”
 Just staring at the place all night?”
Tracy was about to answer her when someone
 suddenly jumped in front of the car.
 And banged on the hood
Tracy got out of the car and yelled
“That wasn’t funny Dave!”
 You scared me half to death!” 
“Now Tracy, where’s your Halloween spirit?”
This whole night is about getting scared!”
 Dave laughed
before he grabbed her hand and walked
 with her
 towards the large tented area
Inside the tent the only lights that
were on.
 Were the ones coming out of the jack o lantern that
 were placed in every corner
  And a few Christmas lights hanging from the beams.
Tracy started to relax as a person dressed as
 Donald duck walked over to Dave.
 And tried to give him a big duck kiss
“Maybe coming
here tonight wasn’t such a bad idea,
after all.”
She thought to herself

Chapter 3

 Chapter 3:

A couple minutes later a piece of paper was
 being passed around.
 So everyone could write down who
 they thought should win.
The best costume prize
After writing down her vote Tracy whispered over
 to Emily,
 who was dressed as tinkle bell
“Hey, Who’s that over by the punch bowl?”
And before Emily could answer her back.
 Cherry Huston interrupted
“May, I please have everyone’s
 The results for best costumes are in, but before
 I tell you who won.”
 I’d like for you to follow us down by the lake,
 to see an eerie show.”
 That the spirits of Crystal Lake have put together."
And as everyone started to head out to the lake,
 Tracy started to get that funny feeling again.
 She was about to ask Dave if they could leave.
 When Emily cried out:
 “Hey!” Hurry up you two!”
“You go Em, we’ll wait for you here.”
 Tracy answered her
 What do you mean we’ll wait for her here?”
 Dave frowned
“I don’t know about you, but I’m going to join
the others.”
And before Tracy could respond he took off
 to catch up with the rest of the group
“Okay Tracy, what’s up with you?”
 Emily asked taking a seat next to her
 “I can’t tell you.” Tracy sobbed
“Yes, you can.
 I promise that I won’t tell anybody,
 it’ll might even help you
feel better if you do,” Emily answered her.
Tracy took a deep breath and began
“Okay, remember when we were in grad school
 and my cousin Billy, took us trick or treating?”
“Well, when we dropped you off I don’t remember
why, but instead of going back
to my house,”
We ended back here I remember that
 I was so scared that I started crying,”
“And Billy’s friend kept telling him to keep
me quite.
Or the madman that lives out here will
come out and eat me,”
“Wow! What a jerk!” Emily frowned.
Tracy nodded then continued
“When we got out of the car we headed towards the lake.
When this crazed old man dressed in rags,”
 Jumped out from one of the bushes and started
 running after us,
yelling at the top of his lungs, for us to get
 out of his house
I remember that one of Billy’s friends,
 sneaked up from behind
 the old man,”
 And wrestled the ax away from him, he kept hitting
him with it over and over again,”
“Oh my god!” Emily cried out
“I could’ve sworn that he killed him
but I was never sure.
 Cause Billy, just grabbed my hand
 and ran back to the car,”
 When we got inside the car his friend grabbed
 my arm and yelled in my face,”
“That if I ever told anyone what happened
 that the same thing would happen to me!”
“Now, do you see why;
 I didn’t want to come out here.”
Tracy sobbed
“Oh Tracy, I’m so sorry,
 come on we’re getting out of here right now!”
Emily told her

Chapter 4

Chapter 4:
They were getting ready to leave when a figure blocked
 their path and removed its mask.
 Revealing that it was Tracy’s cousin Billy
Who had been listening to their whole conversation
“Billy!” what are you doing here?”
 Emily asked him in a surprised tone
of voice.
But Billy just ignored her and walked to where
Tracy was standing
“Tracy, I’m so sorry.
 I had no idea that you’ve been carrying that fear
 of what happened all these years,”
 It was just some stupid prank that my friends
wanted to pull on their girlfriends,”
“And wanted me to help them out with
 I had no choice to take you with me since
your parents weren’t home,”
 Billy started explaining.
“Do you forgive me?”
“Forgive you?”
 you got some nerve how can you stand there
 and ask her to forgive you!”
 When you dragged her out here just to witness one of
 your idiot buddies,
 kill some poor old homeless man!”
 Emily yelled at him
“Oh, you were right about one
thing he was old but homeless,” Never, he had a
family who cared and loved him very much”
 he just got confused once in a while
and liked to come out here,”
“Where no one would bother him that
 was until you and your stupid friends.”
 First, messed with his mind then left him alone to
 die like he was some piece of trash!”
 A voice from behind them yelled 

Chapter 5

Chapter 5:

The three teens were shocked and confused to see
 Dave standing there just yelling at them 
“Dave, what…
“Shut up!”
 I’ve waited for a very long time for this night!”
He yelled over to Tracy
And as he walked closer towards them
 Emily screamed
“Oh, please excuse the way I look!”
 Dave laughed.
He had changed out of his vampire costume
And now was dressed as some homeless bum,
he held up a bloody ax then smiled
“Looks familiar huh?” Tracy,
 it should it was my grandpa’s favorite ax,”
“Dave, what the hell is going on?”
 Where are the others?” Emily asked
“Relax tinkle bell,
 I’ll answer all your questions in a minute.
 But first
 I’ve to take care of some unfinished business,”
 Dave smirked
“Hey, Billy!”
And before Billy could ask him what
Dave took out a gun from his back pocket
 and shot Billy, right in the chest.
 Emily screamed again
 before making a desperate dash to get away.
But she never made it Dave shot her in
 the back
“You know Trac,
 I never liked Tinkle Bell,
 I was more a Captain Hooks, kind of guy!”
he laughed
 Tracy was in a state of shock and thought
to herself
“This can’t be happening,”
 “Dave, I’m really sorry about what happened
 to your grandfather,
 but that was a long time ago.”
 Getting revenge on us now isn’t going to
 bring him back,”  
But her pleas for her life were useless Dave
 just shot her before she had a chance to finish

Chapter 6

Chapter 6:
And even though there was no one really there
 Dave stilled heard the voice of his grandfather
 laughing in his head
“You know son, I never did like that girl,
 she always whined too much,”
Dave smiled and agreed
 as he jumped into the lake to wash himself off.
Then changed into his street clothes but before
 he left
He carefully placed the ax on top of
 unmarked grave
and whispered with a big smile on his face
“Happy Halloween grandpa!”
