NO TRESSPASSING

“I don’t like it here Billy, gives me the creeps. What if he catches us?”

“You worry too much Jimmy. Old Man Benson’s been dead for years. Stories about him wandering around this old place eating trespassers is what grown ups say to keep us away. I’m telling you, there’s no one here. Come on let’s see what’s upstairs.”

A figure watched from the shadows. Scrawling that ‘NO TRESSPASSING’ sign on the wall had been a great idea. It was like a magnet to the local kids. Old Man Benson moved towards the stairs, licking his lips as he went.

  1. Oooh, I loved the suspense. Like watching a horror movie when you find yourself wanting to scream at the teenaged protagonists, “No, don’t answer the phone!” Or “Don’t go into the woods!” Or in this case, “What if he really IS a cannibal!”

    Well done!

  2. these are the kind i like to read and write. well done. with the dialogue, when it’s only two people, we don’t usually say the other person’s name, so you probably don’t need “billy” and “jimmy” at all.
