‘Creeeeeek’ wailed the gym door as it slowly closed behind Sam. ‘It almost sounds like a gothic car alarm going off’ he thought to himself. ‘Now if only this was a campy Tim Burton film everything would be alright.’
Unfortunately Sam wasn’t sure he was sane enough to know if he was in a movie, a dream, or in the real world.
Sam looked down at the blood stained floor. ‘Kyle, pitching machine accident’ Sam recounted the first incident. ‘Christy, impaled on a volleyball post’ he continued.
Something was strange but was it really supernatural? That’s what the exchange student Minako thought and the one thing Sam was sure of, he would follow her anywhere.
It wasn’t just her bubbly cute looks. It wasn’t that she was the only person to find out he would getup 2 hours before school to watch Sailor Moon air on a local pirate TV channel and not laugh at him. She was the first person to really believe in Sam and he wasn’t going to let her down.
*drip*
Something wet fell on Sam’s forehead. It was thick and warm.
*drip*
Sam looked up.
*drip*
Sam’s voice was mute but his mind screamed. “Minako!”

I hope you don't mind but I kind of went 'warm fuzzy" cute like "Another" made me feel and not 'slap stick Harem comedy' cute that would have been funnier.

It was 7:00 pm, late spring. I was in my white and pink schoolgirl uniform, my pigtails held up with ribbons the same color pink. I was on the school grounds, a harmless trip to find my lost cell phone, however there were sudden rumours flying around that after dark the school was no place to be. The sun was about down the horizon, and I was feeling jumpy inside. Every shadow I saw, every movement made me jump and scream. ‘Why am I feeling so scared? It’s only rumours...’ I thought to myself. Then, I heard my cell phone's unique ringtone from behind the bushes. I was relieved, no longer did I need to be at this place. I ran over, and once I reached the bush it was hiding under I crouched down to grab hold of it. Suddenly, there was a cold breath on my neck. A presence was here... And suddenly I realized how dark it was outside. I looked behind, only to see a black silhouette of a teenage boy with a butchers knife. I screamed in horror as he swung the knife down. Blood fell on the ground in pools, puddles, drops. Then, everything went black...

I hope you enjoy.

Atarashi Seikatsu(新しい生活/New Life) Medical Research University


"EVERYBODY RUN!!! THE SARU EXPERIMENT HAS GONE WRONG! CELLS REACTING SPONTANEOUS! PLEASE STUDENTS, MAKE IT OUT AND LOCK THE SCHOOL DOWN!!!"
The school halls were filled with an eruption of the shocking message over the speakers as the intercom abruptly cuts off, Students were shocked to hear the blood curdling screams bleeding through from the lab room.
*BOOM!!!* "WATCH OUT Yui!" Just as Utsume shouted that, the laboratory door burst open and blood splatters on the side of Yui's face as a severed head flies by her and hits another student on the leg, as nearby students got a closer look at the severed head they realized it was Dr.Akimono's head; Immediately surrounding students screamed in horror, fell back, threw up, or fainted.
Panic ensues as all students ran away from the lab area shadowed by high pitch screeching of morbid saru experimental lab subjects making their way out of the lab. Utsume looks over seeing blood dripping down Yui's face as she hurriedly pull the emergency alarm to lock down each sections of the school; while whispering "I hope I can make it home in time to watch Naruto and work on my newest cosplay, today is Thursday!"

Thump

Thump

That wasn’t the sound my heart was making. We were trapped in the school while large hoards of people outside were trying to force their way in. Now these weren’t just normal people. These were people infected with the Virus. The Virus was a sickness that had passed around turning people into zombie-like creatures, but the thing is that they weren’t dead. So until the official term comes out for these people, we’ll just call them Zombies for now. This was an elementary school where many kids came to learn each day. Not anymore, I thought. The only thing they’ll learn now is how to survive. Suddenly I heard something breaking. It was a window down the hall. Somehow one of the zombies had picked up a trash can and hurled it at the door. The boards still held, though, but the zombie’s hands were grabbing a little girl, around the age of 6, and trying to pull her out. I rushed over to the wall and grabbed the fire axe. In two quick motions I chopped off the hands of the zombie. The girl fell to the ground, crying.

“Are you alright?” I asked

Without a word, she continued crying. I picked her up and carried her down the hall, to safety.

I love how easy this was. ^_^

Mine was like 216 words, so I hope that's alright. It isn't THAT much over 200.

I play Left 4 Dead, so I got my inspiration for my story from the game.

And for anybody who didn't catch it, I use the Fire Axe ALL the time whenever possible.

Edith Piaf’s “Milord” plays from a gramophone on your teacher’s desk. It’s dark, cold and you smell something like rusted metal. You realize you’re in your classroom. You feel your feet are wet. “It’s too thick to be water.” A voice whispers in your ear. “Tell me what you hold closest to your heart.” Chills run down your spine. “WHAT DO YOU WANT FROM ME!!?” . Then you hear a match and a candle lights up. You see the floor covered in red and the walls are lined with bodies of your classmates. “I don’t want anything of yours. You said you wanted everyone to disappear, right?” As the candlelight gets brighter you see your best friend strapped to a chair. “Nooo!!!!” you yell out as you run for the knife. “My life for his.” The character says nothing. You plunge the knife into your body. “I’m sorry.” you say as you pass out. You wake up in the hospital with a note on your bedside. “We tend to forget that happiness doesn't come as a result of getting something we don't have, but rather of recognizing and appreciating what we do have.—Frederick Koenig” FIN.

Mine's a bit more psychological than scary but it has a little bit of a horror feel.

...I think.

____________________________________________

“B-brother, I’m scared. This is-!”

“Shh.” My older brother silenced me by placing his index finger over his lips. He wanted me to stay calm but such a task was currently impossible.

Just hours ago, we were all having another school day. I was laughing at my friends’ antics while worrying about what my brother may be up to in his class today. He has a short temper and added with the fact that he’s stupid and has a nasty personality, what kind of sibling wouldn’t worry?

He always gets yelled at by the teachers and is looked down upon by his peers. I know that he can be an idiotic jerk but… deep down he’s a really good person!

…I suppose that’s what caused him to snap.

All that pressure placed upon him, all the suffering he’s endured. A human can only take so much. Even so, why? Why did he have to bring that gun here and kill them all? My friends… His classmates… Our teachers… Why, brother? Why are you placing that gun at my head as well?

“I’m sorry… My sweet little sister.” He weeps a single tear of regret as he pulls the trigger.

BANG!

Here is mine :3
Title: Drip, drip, drip

Emiko was born with bad eye sight. When she was a third year in middle school her parents decided to have her get eye surgery. After the surgery she was told she wouldn’t be able to see for a couple days, knowing this Emiko insisted she go to school. Her best friend, Saya promised that if she got scared to call her name and she promised to be there to squeeze her hand. School came and Emiko walked in with a cane trying to find her classes, when she passed by closet she started hearing this dripping sound, she got a little scared and decided to call out "Saya!" and soon her hand was squeezed and Emiko went to class. Through the whole day when she would pass that closet she would hear the sound drip, drip, drip and she would call Saya because there was no dripping before. The next day she could see and when she got to school she went straight to the closet. She heard the dripping again… she opened the door and SCREAMED! "SAYA!!!!!!!!" soon her hand was being squeezed..... But the sound of the dripping was blood that came from Saya inside the closet.

Title: “Miyu and Mitzy – Survivors of the Third Apocalypse!”
Story © 2012 Andrew Mitchell, all rights reserved.

“Miyu? Do you have a sec?” Mitsy asked, hiding behind an overturned desk. The two girls had just taken shelter in the Chemistry Lab – the zombie hordes right behind them. With a crash, a hand broke through the door’s glass pane, reaching for the latch.

“Hold that thought,” Miyu retorted, firing off a quick round and severing the undead limb in the process. “I’m a little busy saving our lives at the moment.”

“I know, but it’s just that…I don’t think I have what it takes to survive….”

“What do you mean?” came Miyu’s reply, with a cocked eye in her friend’s direction. “You’re with me, aren’t you? I have enough skills to get us both out of this mess.”

Mitzy’s eyes had a glazed look about them, and she seemed on the verge of tears. “But that’s just the point: I don’t have any special abilities of my own. I can barely hold a gun…my medical skills are worse than useless. I wouldn’t even be good for procreation – have you seen how flat my chest is?!”

Suddenly Miyu was before her, a soft smile touching her face. “Don’t worry…you can leave all that to me. We’re in this together.”


This one was really really good but it was more inspirational and funny than scary. BUT I LOVE IT ANYWAYS. I say if you expanded it and made it into a novel, I would buy it for sure. :)


Thanks! I deeply appreciate your thoughts! I had my doubts at first, but I'm really happy that I decided to pen out my idea -- it turned out better than I expected!

As for exanding the world of "Miyu and Mitsy," I completely agree. As soon as I submitted it for the contest, I thought about the possibility of writing more and turning into a full-length novel, but I wanted to wait and gauge reader's reactions first. You've definitely helped me think about my future plans for the characters!


Awesome I am soooo glad I could help! I want to write novels too and I think it would be so cool to see your own book on a shelf of a bookstore. I haven't had time though since I am still in highschool :S But I really want to get some ideas down over the summer and practice my writing skills. I am writing a fanfic for Naruto. But I am using a character I have created myself and Anko (I love her!) I think it's pretty good so far but I still need to improve. And I also want to stray away from fanfics and create my own set of characters and my own type of world. Maybe we could exchange ideas? Just a suggestion.
Btw the part where Mitzy pauses and says "Have you seen how flat my chest is?!" Omg I just burst out laughing saying that's brilliant! hahaha!

Wait, I'm stressed, does it matter if I wrote 219 words?!!?!? I mean, gosh! It's not the story being cute and scary at the same time the real challenge, but 200 words!!! I spent 1 hour trying to put out the words that aren't important to put... >.> Well...here goes nothing...and if I'm disqualified...ouch... (>.<)


Those Red, bloody eyes

She couldn’t understand what brought him to do all this. Those red, bloody eyes, ready to jump at her at anytime. But he couldn’t, because in his arms, was already her sister. She planned to save her, but it was too late. Blood started gushing out of her skin while intestines hanging out of her body. The girl falls to the floor, horrified by this scene she’s witnessed. He kept digging a hole inside the body while the girl cried exasperatingly to stop, until he took one of her sister’s womb’s and threw it harshly at the floor, as if he still couldn’t find what he wanted. He kept digging, until he found it. Beating madly as if life would depend on it; A heart.
She couldn’t escape from this appalling scene. Unable to move, she stayed there, watching it’s heart slowly squeeze between the palm of his hand till it explodes. She couldn’t help but faint and later woke up at the nurses office. There was her boyfriend. She was frightened for a moment, but then realized it was just a dream. She tried texting her sister numerous times, until she saw his love moving away, with those eyes smiling amusingly at her direction. The lights turned off, hearing only at last the lovely sound of him laughing.

The way I see it, you cannot follow all the criteria and accomplish it in 200 words. So I merely tried to fulfill the majority of the suggestions and hope for the best.

Here's my entry. I managed to cut it down to exactly 200 words.


______
Lily is as cute as ever, smiling brightly as she removes her schoolbooks from her desk. “We’re still on for tomorrow?” she asks me.

“Of course,” I reply.

Lily is as cute as ever, and always will be, because she is a hallucination. Everyone is. Alan with his infectious laughs that never fail to cheer me up, Karen with her insightful comments. All fake, all delusions.

I don’t care. After living alone for 6 months, convinced I was the last human alive, I am just happy for the company, fake or not.

“Will you walk me home?” Lily asks as she extends her hand. I tell her yes, but I am slightly saddened, for my delusions don’t extend to a sense of touch. I reach out my hand to her… and discover I can feel her. Have my delusions worsened?

No… her hand feels off somehow. My delusions are always exactly like the real thing.

Lily senses my discomfort and pulls away. And I realize now that my classmates are not just delusions, but something real. Something not human.

“It’s fine,” I say, and extend my hand again. Lily smiles at me. I don’t care what she is. Not anymore.
______

Hope you liked it.
