It was a dark and stormy Halloween night and Sal and Jess her best
friend were at Sal’s house for the night to watch movies.Order now
Knock, Knock, Knock, “Sal, someones at the door do you want me to answer
it?”, Jess yelled to Sal who was upstairs doing her hair in the bathroom.
“Yeah Cool Jess its probably just some more annoying trick or treaters
anyway”, replied Sal.
Jess got up off the couch and approached the door making sure to peer
through the peephole to see who it was. All she could make out were two
small dark figures so she guessed they were trick or treaters.
opened the door just enough so she could have the latch on. “Grrrrrrr we
are the creatures from hell”, screamed the smaller of the two figures.
Both the figures were dressed with a bed sheet that had obviously been
painted black and thrown over their heads with just two tiny holes where
the eyes would be. The other figure then said “whats it gunna be lady,
trick or treat?” Jess opened the door fully now and beckoned them to come
inside. “Just wait here”, she said as she ran up the stairs and into the
bathroom where Sal was still combing her hair.
“Sal what should I give those two boys”, asked Jess.
“I dunno give
them one of those chocolate things near the fridge”, Sal replied. Jess
turned and went back down the stairs into the kitchen to find the bars.
“Are you still there boys?”, she yelled. But there was no reply. Jess
stopped and went back to the front door. To her surprise the boys had
vanished and there was no sign of them.
Fine she thought to herself at
least it saves two more chocolate bars for me.
Suddenly Jess heard a voice but she didn’t know what it said or where it
was coming from. “Is somebody there?”, Jess inquired taking a huge gulp
at the same time. “Yeah me”, replied the voice in a strong tone.
Arggghhhhh Jess screamed as she saw a tall man bearing a long sharp knife.
Jess turned around and bolted back up the stairs as fast as she could.
“Sal, Sal the…the…
theres a huge guy with a knife downstairs”, Jess
stuttered. “What are you on about Jess?”, replied Sal. “Im serious Sal
there’s a guy with a knife downstairs and he’s ‘gunna’ kill us”, shrieked
Jess as the panic set in. Sal was begining to get worried now as she
tried to think straight. “Now calm down Jess”, Sal said softly, “There
are two of us and only one of him right?,” “Right!”, replied Jess. “So
all we gotta do is each grab something heavy and go face this guy head to
head”, explained Sal.
Sal slowly began walking out of the bathroom and
beckoned Jess to follow. The girls now proceeded along the hall and into
Sal’s room. Sal looked for her baseball bat while Jess ran to Sal’s
brother’s room for something she could use to hit this intruder. She
found a golf club lying under his bed, grabbed it and ran out the room, her
and Sal met just above the stairs. “You ready?”, she asked, “Readier than
i’ll ever be!”, Sal replied, not so enthusiasticly. “OK, here goes!”
The two girls now began to make there way downstairs both shivering in
Suddenly it all got too much and Jess collapsed and began
tumbling down the stairs. She rolled all the way to the bottom dropped
her golf club and then landed flat on her back motionless.
At that the moment Sal who was standing still in shock noticed a man
enter through the front door and move towards Jess brandishing a knife and
a briefcase. Sal screamed at the top of her voice “you leave my friend
alone you bastard”, and charged towards the man swinging her bat. Sal
had a huge swing but didn’t actually connect with the man who was now bent
down next to Jess asking her if she was alright.
The man then looked up at Sal and said, “Wow thats some greeting you two
have got there”.
Sal stopped for a moment and stared at the man with a
confused expression. “I’m Tim Shaw from Demtal Shopping Service and I was
wondering whether you girls were interested in purchasing the one and only
Tasaki meat knife”, explained the man. Jess who was now sitting upright
