This sounds fun. Here is mine


We all joined the clock for the countdown until summer vacation. Little did we know this would be the last few seconds in our short lives. My eyes were on Sarah, a girl I have always had a crush on. " 30, 29, 28" The class chanted at a steady pace. "What you got planned for the summer" were the last words I heard my best friend James say. I didn't really have an answer so I kind of just brushed it off. "20,19,18" The entire class was synced as their last breathes drew near. I began to look outside. A slight bit of worry arose when I saw emptiness throughout the neighborhood. Not a car or person could be seen on the street. I felt an eerie chill freeze my body. "10,9,8" A gut wrenching sensation instilled a fear in me that I could not shake. My senses told me something was wrong and it was too late to do anything about it. "3,2,1" James was the first to step towards the door. My vocal cords tried to form the words "stop" or "wait" but I was interrupted by the gruesome sight in front of me. The rest of James' body had continued on a short stroll despite the fact his head had been torn from his shoulders. A large black demonic figure with piercing red eyes now stood with a severed head clasped in one of its claws. James' eyes and mouth still twitched as though his soul was trapped in his skull. The entire world seemed to be at a stalemate for all of three seconds. A blood soaked pandemonium followed the calm and brief intermission as the black figure stepped closer and closer.

EDIT: I was trying to quote Myki52... And failed miserably. Noob power! Anyway...

—Things to ignore:
Character development
Backstory
Plot development
In-depth explanations (Most explanations, actually)

—Basic plots:
Cute, then scary thing/person does something
Scary thing/person does something but in a cute way
Cute and creepy thing/person does something

I think that's pretty much it It's pretty much just a one-scene thing

90-day membership, huh? I'll give this a try :)

Alina dropped to her knees and brought her hand to her mouth in sheer and utter disbelief. The setting sun painted the classroom a warm shade of red and the body of her best friend was slumped over his desk in a pool of dark blood. His half open eyes stared past her. "No..." she whispered, reaching a hand out and touching his stained face. “You can’t do this to me…” His body was perfectly still and growing colder. She swallowed back a sob in her throat as she thought about the summer they spent together, watching fireworks and eating ice cream at the beach. He’d held her hand and told her he loved her so how could he leave her like this? How could this happen? Alina wiped a tear away, leaving a streak of blood on her cheek when she saw his fingers twitch. She’d heard somewhere that the nerves sometimes continued firing even after death. “Liars should be punished.” Alina turned the butcher knife in her hand and shoved it through his neck. Just in case.

Just something I've been thinking about writing for awhile. I'm half asleep so I probably made some mistakes ^^ Thanks for reading <3

I don't think I can write it in 200 words!


Sure you can! Don't knock it until you try it! I didn't think that I could at first, but after I started looking at the word limit as a challenge instead of a problem, the words just started to flow.

Aaah, scratch that last one! I came up with a better idea... Not sure if I should edit the last one out or not, though. At least this one kind of makes sense? 200 words on the dot!

Natalie turned to me, a childish smile spread across her face. “Hey, Tom, can I have your heart? I promise I won’t break it.” She brushed a lock of dark hair out of her face and pinned it lopsidedly on top of her head. She held out her hands, as if she was begging for something real. “Please?”

I grinned back at her and flopped down on the bench outside of the classroom. “I don’t know if you’d really want it, Nat.”

Natalie bounced over and wrapped her arms around me. “How could I not?” Her sparkling green eyes stared up at me, begging for a better response. Her arms felt warm, but she held me too tight.

She was taking this a little too seriously, but hadn’t she always been this childish? I decided to play to her game and just agree. “Sure, Nat. Just don’t break it, okay?”

Immediately, Natalie bolted upright, giggling, smile even wider. “Really? Promise?”

“Promise.”

Something silver glinted in the sunlight, and my stomach lurched when I realized it was a knife. Smile just as sweet as always, she plunged it into my chest, stuck a hand inside, and quite literally stole my heart.

I haven't read all of the posted stories (yet), but of the ones I have, this is one of my favorites. Something about the way that Natalie ramains innocent and childish throughout the entire experience strikes me as a great balance between horror and comedy. Well done!

The Light of Revenge

"I know you despise me..." she whispered in my ear. I quickly shoved her away, falling back into a seated position on the blood-stained floor in the process.

She looked down at me and laughed innocently, tears flowing from her eyes. "But...what can I do?"

I looked up at her – her name...Hikari...and at one point I called her my girlfriend. She smiled at me...such a beautiful smile, truly reflective of her name.

Slowly, she stalked towards me, stepping over the lifeless corpses of my former friends. Their lives...thrown away in misguided rage from the beacon of light.

"You said you loved me..." those words slipping free from those lips I once embraced, my eyes following her every step. "I believed you...so why?"

I desired to get up and run...I couldn't. I felt frozen in place, limbs immobile, eyes unable to move.

"You destroyed me..." her tone of voice chilled my soul. Cold steel pressed against my throat would soon be replaced by that wooden handle that was pushed into my hand. My eyes couldn't move, her expression was unsettling, how could she smile like that even now?

"Finish what you started."

Everything about her was cute. Her sparkling big blue eyes. Her golden hair that shone like moonlight dancing upon the waves at midnight. The way she blushed when I looked at her, then giggled and looked away. She was perfect.
“Um... Yu-ki?”
“Uh, what?” I turned around. It was her!
“I, I have something to t- tell you.” She was blushing and staring at the ground nervously.”
“Oh, sure.” I smiled. Her big eyes widened, and she blushed even more.
“Uh, please c- come this way,” she grabbed my sleeve. Her hand was shaking.
She pulled me into the empty gym.
“I-I wanted to t-tell you that I, I have... wanted you. For a very long time.”
I blushed. “She, she wanted me!?” She pulled me closer.
“So please,”
Was she going to kiss me?!
She leaned in, trembling.
“Please..”
She was an inch away from my face.
“I need you Yuki.”
I stammered, “I-I love you!”
She smiled,
wider,
and wider.
The last thing I saw was the sun reflecting off of her shimmering golden hair.
The last thing I felt was the sharp pain of her fangs piercing my neck.
And then I died.


200 words exactly! What do you think?

This sounds fun.
Hmm… I guess I could branch off the novel I’m working on and make a short story for this… (http://www.writing.com/main/view_item/item_id/1838883-Through-the-Eyes-of-Truth-Chapter-I) If you wanted to look at it.
Here goes…
~This story takes place 10,000 years prior to the events in my novel-in-progress.~

~Through the Eyes of Terror~
MJZ

The dust and smoke finally settled, revealing the devastation of the great explosion that occurred moments before. At the back of the classroom, a girl with a rather long ponytail sat trembling in the fetal position. The tag on her bent pencil box displayed the name “Mio.”

She stumbled out from under her desk and began patting the floor with her hands in search of her glasses.
“Where are they…?” she said to herself as she moved her hand across the glass lenses, which sat in a pool of red liquid.

Mio carefully donned her glasses, and glanced forward to see the mangled bodies of her classmates, partially hidden under a pile of rubble from the rooms above. She backed up and shifted her eyes towards the hole in the ceiling, where the lifeless corpses of her upperclassmen from the above floor were hanging. She fell to her knees and began to cry. “Why is this happening…I want to go home!”

Echoic footsteps could be heard coming from the hallway. Mio let out a small gasp. A skeletal hand rapped around the doorway and a cloaked horror, wielding a dark and twisted sword moved into the room. With his entrance came a strange purple haze which filled the area. The corpses of her classmates began to twitch and buldge. They erupted seconds later, spraying blood and gore throughout the room. All that remained were their bare skeletons, which seemed to move by themselves.

Mio backed up against the wall and asked frantically, “W-who are you…D-don‘t hurt me…!”
He cackled and said but four words, “I am your Death.” He then raised his sword and painted the rest of the classroom red.

“I am Vel’zak, Lord of Shadow. Tremble before me pathetic mortals, for your lives will soon be filled with nothing but Terror.” His voice echoed throughout the land as the lights of the Kingdom began to fade, along with the era of peace.

Awesome story-scene. Very creepy... Just two things that bug me.

1. Isn't it supposed to be 200-ish words?
2. HOW DOES THAT MAGICAL GIRL NOT CLEAN THE BLOOD OFF HER GLASSES AND STILL SEE? Water screws mine up *Waves of envy radiate off body (and sadly normal glasses)*

I look forward to reading whatever's on that link you posted!

Make sure your "story" is no longer than 200 words ! I don't want to read 400 mini-novels just trying to choose a winner!

REMEMBER

Your story must have a "school setting."

Your story must feature cute characters !



As a fan of Another and scary stories, namely H.P. Lovecraft, you can't honestly expect someone to write a scary story with cute characters and a 200 word limit. :(

If your willing, I'd be happy to help judge the stories if you release the 200 word cap. Pick out the top 15 or so and let you pick out the top 5? Leave a message if you'd want to do that.

School Night!

Kayaki's science class has a class at 8pm because at 9pm, planet Venus will be visible in the sky and they're going to look at it and study (for 50 points extra credit XD)... (cute part :D) Before the class starts, Kayaki and his girlfriend went upstairs and went to history classroom (not being used) to kiss and hangout, but when they were about to kiss, they heard something fell. Kayaki told his girlfriend, "Stay here! Do not leave! I'll be right back." Kayaki went to the stairs, then he looked back and saw a pale girl without a face (no nose, mouth, and eyes), floating, following him. Kayaki screamed and ran as fast as he can but he tripped the blacked out. When he woke-up, he's on a bed in the nurse office at school, alone, with no lights on. He stayed there and and closed his eyes. After a few minutes, he hear a sound like "Uh-Uh-uh-k-k-k-kk-k." He opened his eyes and saw a another pale girl without a face jumping on a bed, making that scary sound, then he saw is girlfriend and classmates hanged, with their eyes wide open, looking at him. The end...

The Jade Clock Tower of Hyukoshi High School was rumored to be haunted. Sora-kun and Haruka-chan believed the story to be undeniably true. Unfortunately, their friend Natsume-sempai believed a more rational explanation could be found. One evening just after sunset, the trio climbed its spiral staircase to the tower’s peak. Inside the friends discovered the metallic mechanisms and Gothic-Lolita style wooden dolls--that lived in a stained glass manor--hard at work keeping the hands moving precisely.

“Nothing but cute dolls and machinery,” Natsume-sempai scoffed.

“We worried over nothing,” they replied in unison.

“In fairness, I wouldn’t go that far,” Natsume-sempai darkly chuckled.

Suddenly, a whirling stream of green light issued from the clock’s face and engulfed Sora-kun completely. It reminded Haruka-chan of the manner in which an x-ray reveals the bones beneath skin right before he disappeared. She began to run toward the staircase in horror.

“I’ve been living on borrowed time,” Natsume-sempai drawled as he strode in pursuit, “the souls of the believers keep me alive.”

Eventually, he caught her, slowly sucking the soul from her fresh, supple body.

*******

She awoke in dim-lighting, feeling heavy. Looking down at her hands, she saw they were made of wood.
