The magic gates
Once upon a time there were some old gates
and they led to Monster High……carry on reading and find out more…… One sunny morning a beautiful little girl called Rebecca took her puppies out for a nice little walk through the streets. She discovered some old gate’s, Rebecca tried to open the gate’s and when she did Rebecca found a high school called monster high.” wow this is amazing” she mumbled to herself. She opened the creaky door and took a step and another then she saw a beautiful lady and said “hi I am Rebecca”,
“so am I” she replied “you’re going to love it here at monster high”
“I really must go but great meeting you though.”
But when she was back by the gate’s Rebecca and her puppies were blocked by a great big bull Rebecca pulled down the ring on the bulls’ nose and scratched it she finally got out of the place and got home.

So, I was just visiting my dead grandfather. I didn’t mean to release a giant swarm of the undead. I was in a graveyard visiting my granddad that passed away last year. I was whistling a tune which wasn’t that good really I do admit. Then a hand popped out of the grave…

The haze of dusk was falling. I was so frightened when I saw an old, weak man trying to undo the lock to the memorial park. My friend Jamie was with me. We both looked at each other in horror. With some trepidation, I went over to the man and asked him what he was doing. He said he was the park owner and that he had lost his keys. The police were walking by and we mentioned it to the officer. Then, they said that he was not the park keeper and that they would solve it from there. We both hid behind a bush and watched intrigued. He was being arrested. I felt a strange mixture of haunting and relief. Problem solved; at least we thought it was.

Lily Grace B F 9

One day Lily was passing through the park and at the other end she found her best friend Isabel.” Let’s go on an adventure come on through here, you’re not meant to go through there”. “I don’t care” said Isabel.

The very next day Lily and Isabel were still searching. Lily saw a grave yard; a vampire chased after them “I told you, we should not have come through here”.” BLOOD WERE IS MY BLOOD” said the vampire, in a deep graspy voice.

The vampire looked everywhere for Lily and Isabel but they were not there. And they were never seen again or were they? So that is why you should never go through the gate.

As they opened the gates they heard ghostly noises. Terrified they ran through the field, screaming for help as they knew they were probably going to die…
Tony fainted at the thought of being captured by a ghost.
Ella sobbing through her jumper as she knew the world was not safe anymore. Jack climbing up a tree to see if anyone was there to help. But no one was there!
Then they found out what it was it was a person pretending to be a ghost, just to be funny… BUT then they found out what he wanted to do to them! Because they had found out about him, he wanted to capture them and kill them by starvation. Could they escape or not…

As I was working down the road with my friend we saw a big black gate behind the trees. So I asked shell we have a look as we opened the gates they squeaked. There was a long path the others side with tall hedges on both sides we walked down the path and it was getting darker and darker till we couldn’t see at all. Then there was a light far away so we tried to follow it when we reached it there was a little person there. very old looking so we asked her to help us and she said go back to the gates and get out quick so we tried but we could not get reach them then the floor went very slippy and I fell over and banged my head. Then I woke up in my own bed and my mum said I’d been dreaming. But was I?

I walked up to the Ivy-covered gates. I placed my hand on the cold, rough metal. The leaves fluttered around in the mid-autumn breeze, warning me to stay away. Only damage and destruction lay beyond these gates. These gates contain the driving forces that can rip a family apart. There is no one left except me and these gates, the beginning of an end. Satchel and money in hand, I push open the iron gates towards a dark
proposal.

Recently I went to Miami with my mum, dad and my dog Carl. When we were there we did this maze, and we sot of got lost. So we split up, I went one way mum went the wrong, way and dad and Carl went opposite wrong way. When I finally went the right way, I found a huge gate that led all the way to a secret place which I can not reveal.

Emma M9

I woke up and went outside and there it was the gate. Suddenly I saw a strange man walk past the gate. He walked past all of the others and they all changed to the same as my gates.

The next day I got up again and went outside again then I released that the same man came past. Later that day I went to the gate then I went to the grave and the same gates as mine were there and I thought that I was dreaming.

The next day I went outside and the gates were the same and there was no man.

Waltzing away under the moonlit sky. The humid weather was just perfect. Eliza was intrigued by the soft bitterness of the wind that fell upon her reddish cheeks. Up on ahead she saw a glooming shadow of a steel barrier gate. Eliza leaped over with no fear. She bent down with a gravity fall. Eliza gave a greedy smirk, “HA, easy peasy” she said.

The dead trees howled as the bitter breeze whilst past its bellow. Red blood, skeleton leaves fell upon Eliza’s presences. Her sky blue eyes, beamed through the haze. As a mist of shadow approached her. She screamed, and yelped. She slipped and fell to the ground lying on her back. Grasping onto the bars of the gate. She gave a big black belt kick on the shadow. Eliza flung herself on top of the gate and down. She ran, and ran. From that day on she never stepped foot onto this very entrance again.

Carnella 13

Walking toward the gate the wind whistled and I knew what was coming we don’t speak of it; I could not open the gate. This is the darkest time of our history humans transforming into creatures slaved to the moon. Human feared leaving their house at night because the beast’s that Rome around. The gate I approached is the gate of mysteries it can only be Opened by the apprentice this person is a rare species and can only be found once a millennium, to be friends with the apprentice was legendary . I still could not open it I am not the apprentice I had believed i was for many years yet still nothing not even a budge. But how did I get to this compelling place. The apprentice appeared and touched me and said “now you are the apprentice” and disappeared.

Reghan 12

Walking through the gates, I notice shadows zooming past. As I get closer then I see a woman sitting next to a little child. I slowly approach them, the wind howls and leaves blow, leaves with evil faces on them. Just as I get closer the woman turns her head and screams her head turns in a full rotation. She has bloodshot eyes and her face is covered in cuts and bruises. I look down at the little girl she looks scared, I asked what happened and got no reply. So I decided to explore the area. The woman followed behind me and she had a knife. I turned around, “don’t hurt me its okay”, I said feeling terrified. The little girl said in a soft shy voice, “she saved my life…”

It felt like the hedges were caving in on me, none of my friends would understand they were all wimps not even attempting to come up the spooky path. Suddenly the old rusty gates lay before me, everyone watching surprised I had gotten that far. Reaching my hand out to open the spooky gate a creak just appeared out of know were without me touching it. My guts falling out of my stomach as I opened the gate inch by inch. Near the end of opening the creaky gate I noticed at the top of the gate little spikes getting taller and taller every step I make. Then I noticed every time I took a step on the other side of the gate the trees would start moving. Every step I make my friends yelling come back, come back, ignoring every word they say…

I tipped out the water that had impossibly leaked into my boots. The eerie feeling trapped people inside, too intimidated to venture beyond the gates. Striding along the damp grass, autumn’s leaves stuck to my cold and wet feet. I clutched my frozen fingertips around the rusty iron bar. My heart pounded with adventure and mystery. Then it started to beat so fast, I felt as if I couldn’t hold it in my chest. I slowly, but carefully climb over the gates. Sudden movements of rustling leaves and crumbling rock are enough to make my hair curl. I become aware of my irritated ear trembling with fear, terrified of songs of silence. I scrape my boots on the wet cracked pavement and cringe as I make my way round. Pressing my hands against the narrow walls I come across a doorknob. “Do I turn it?”

Madison Browne 12

I here the wind howling like a wolf calling out in the midnight. The leaves start to crackle as I walk up the path. I take my first step into the doom.
I carry on walking into the path of doom and I here these voices in my mind telling me to go further in the dark gloom. When I go through the doom. Everything around me disappears into dust so I hope the future lies upon me and that I make it out of the doom alive. In the doom I see dead bodies on the ground freaking me out. One of the bodies has a knife in its stomach which is going to haunt me forever. Then I see a shadow in the gloom staring at me like an evil witch.

Aimen 11

AOOOOOOH!!! AOOOOOOH!!! The wolves were howling, as the gates creaked open. I tiptoe down the steps slowly and stealthily. The gates slam shut, I stare in horror. I charge at the gates trying to open them. Well since I’m already locked in, I might as well have a look around the place. There are dead bodies everywhere, there’s even a dead body on the toilet. Man they should really tidy up the place. AHHHHHHHHHH!!! IT’S A WOLF. I’m running, I’m running, I’m running, I’m running, It seems like my life is ending too fast. I slipped and face planted right into a mud pit. I run towards the gates again trying to escape. I see the lights the lights I tell ya. Something’s in the middle of the light, oh it just mum. Boo Yah!!! I’m free baby

Bailey L 12

It was as dark as nights, in that forest, even the gate was mysteriously dark. Yesterday I saw some idiotic boy go in, who looked like he had just taken a stupid bet. The next day I saw missing signs with the same boy on them, so I imagined I would have to go into the forest to find him, (bad idea). I had to do it, so I opened the gate and went in. The forest thicker than anything I had ever seen before. I walked for a while, and then I found a clearing and saw him. It was the most disgusting thing I had ever seen, he had been ripped to shreds by something. I ran, I was almost at the gate when a hand grabbed my foot and pulled me in to the trees and that was the last time I ever saw daylight.

It was a bitter afternoon, the dim green shrubs were closing in around me. Bright orange leaves scattered across the pavement.

The agile shadow moved closer. The gate abruptly unlocked, the wind howled through my dark locks. I hurtled towards the the black iron gate, only to fall flat on my face, when I looked up a figure with a long cloak was towering over me. And with that my vision went black.

I woke up on the path, the unforgiving wind shot at me. The gate was right in front of me, again. The stinging pain on my head was unbearable. As I got up, I noticed a dark red arrow, with a cross on my arm.

I slowly limped out of the gate, I got out my phone it was 8 PM and I had no reception. I gasped when I looked up in front of me; there stood a whole coven of people in black cloaks.

A tall metal gate stood in front of me with thick wrought iron chains tightly around the bars secured by a rusty padlock. I tried to look for the key under the leaves even though I knew I wouldn’t find the key. It was probably inside the old ruined house anyway. I struggled to climb over the fence trying to heave my self up. I finally gathered enough strength to get over. I cautiously walked down the path. Suddenly I saw some light. I went closer. It was a little light that was buried in the dirt. It was getting late so I started to head home.” this mystery will have to wait for another day” I decided.

Marco and Noah 7 and 8

I stood in front of the cast iron gates that towered over me. “It probably led to a haunted house, “I murmur to myself”.” that would be scary with all the witches and, bats and maybe even a Zombie”. The trees hung over the path and moss dug into the concrete stuck to the ground like a puzzle. I Checked the time on my watch-8: pm my bedtime. It wasn’t worth being late – mum would definitely take my iPhone away. I turned away from the gate and headed home. The answer to this mystery would have to wait till tomorrow.

Glenn T 10

Behind the gate is a creepy house where a family were happy until the clouds turn grey. An earthquake happens the house turns into black
dust. They need to find out what did this. And how to fix it they search around for clues but they don’t find any. “Come on!” I found something on the floor it was a very old picture. It looked very new. They knew they had gone to the past.

Alex 10

I went for a walk to go to the graveyard to give flowers to my granny. I walked pass the shop and passed the park and finally got there. It was a big black gate it was as big as an elephant and as black as a chalkboard.
I opened the gate it squeaked like mouse. I slowly walked through and I saw my granny’s grave. I walked pass lots and lots of graves and finally got to my granny’s grave I read her stone and placed down her flowers and BANG! I looked around, the gate was closed. I ran to the gate I tried to open it, it would not open. I panicked, I tried to jump over the fence but it was too tall. I tried to climb the wall. It never worked I just fell down. I shouted, “HELP HELP.” I was all alone. I heard footsteps. It was my mum and I told her everything and she called the fire brigade and then I was saved.

Abbi 9

Ding dong I heard it! I opened the gate. All you could hear was the gate screeching like an owl. At first it was dead stiff then it flew open. I fell on my knees it felt as if I was still falling. It had a really creepy feeling so I jumped right back up feeling dead scared. I am dead nosy so walked around looking everywhere. All the leaves on the trees came falling down instantly then floated up the way again. It was very scary. I ran back to the gates. They were locked. I screamed, “Let me out of here!” And fell on my knees crying. I was trapped in a graveyard all by myself. I thought I would never see the light of day again! Then I heard the thunder rolling in. It swirled round and BANG the gate flung open. I was free so I ran home and never went back.

Gareth 10

There was a boy walking his dog through the park kicking leaves. At the same time all of a sudden there was a noise from the abandoned house behind the locked gate. Then a man came from behind the boy Shouted Boo! He got a massive fright from the devilish man. He was rubbing his hands “saying, go home or go to the party at the house behind the locked gate”. So the boy said “I better not, it’s getting dark”. but you can win loads and loads of money the boy said but you going or not I will go for half an hour but he went and in a flash he was gone an hour later he was spotted by his mum and dad at the park at five o’clock on an cold dark night at the park so they phoned the police to find there dog then a week later they got news that there dog is fine and they can come get him from the animal shelter and then they got a new got a new dog a week later.

It was the end of school and Jack was walking home with his mates. He had just passed the corner of his street, when he found a huge gate. His friends kept on walking, whilst Jack stared at the gate. He opened it. The gate was decorated with pretty bushes and crinkled leaves. Jack went down the steps, and went in the graveyard. It was a huge graveyard, but where were the gravestones? He looked around, curiously. “Hello!!” Jack yelled. No answer. There was a silence for a couple of minutes. Then there was a howl. Jack froze. “Who is there?!” No reply. He started to run. Faster and faster he started to run. He got to the gate, but the gate was locked! It must have locked by itself. As soon as he turned around BOOM! There were gravestones! “Whoa!” gasped Jack. It was as scary as a freaky, foul frog. He ran to the gate again and tried to open it. Still shut. Will Jack be trapped forever?

Dailah 9

I was out playing with friends. I was up to my old diddle dallying. We found a graveyard but the gate was closed. So we walked away but suddenly there was a creek and a BANG the gate smacked the hard stone wall whilst opening. My friend walked forward slowly whilst clenching our fists. I was scared and no doubt my friends weren’t . We all ran so no one will see us .we ran in .The gravestones stones were covered with moth. I asked my friend “Why would someone close of a grave yard like this?”
“Maybe it’s haunted” Chloe. Bang there it was again the gate slammed shut .We ran as fast as we could to the gate. But I didn’t bother looking back at my friends. We rattled on the gate. But no one answered. In fact there was no one there. We tried to escape but there was no one there to help us we tried to climb up and over but there were spikes as sharp as icicles .We shouted but we were stuck forever and ever.

Meghan 10

I was there, I was nearly there, there I was in the driveway of my new house it was huge I couldn’t wait to get in one push of the gate and I was in. My dad got out of the car and walked in the middle of the huge hedges. I was sure that I could climb to the top of them but that was for another day, I wasn’t allowed! It was the next day I woke up in my new bedroom. I took one look out of the window at the big trees at the gate and just at that moment I knew exactly what I was going to do. I got dressed, had my breakfast and ran out the back door. There was a little wren on the big black gate I didn’t want to scare it so I didn’t. It was almost like the trees were talking to me. I felt like the trees were talking to me so I ran inside got some bread .I climbed the tree to the highest point and the tree told me to rip the bread, so I did. I my hand out in air hoping that the little bird would come and say hello but it flew away. I did the same to next day I climbed the tree. And again and again I did that. I would get closer and closer every single day. It was the last day of the summer holidays so I totally knew that I would be able to get the little wren to come closer and maybe eat the bread. I was the bottom of the tree. The next minute I was at the top of the tree I got closer I held the bread out and whoosh the seagull got it and me. Aaaaaaaaaaaaa!

Neesha 10

Me and my friend were coming home from school and she said I know a short cut to her house, so I said okay. Lilly took me through this dark gate and we tried to open it up. It didn’t open it was locked. We looked everywhere to see if we can find the key, but all we could find was dirt, rats, leafs and rubbish, I was scared.
I said let’s turn back and walk the normal way home but I don’t think Lilly agreed with me because all she did was look for the key. I was cold as ice and I wanted home but I didn’t want to leave Lilly alone looking for the key when I’m at home safe. I stayed and helped her look for the key. When it got dark we found the key so I put it in the key hole and we got out, then we went to her house.

Noah 9

Suddenly I woke up. Thomas and I were trapped inside a massive house…
“Where are we?” said Thomas. Then an old man came in with his ninja henchman. “You did this,” I said. “Yes “ he answered .Then I remembered I had my pen knife I cut the rope which we were tied in .Then we slowly walked away but one ninja saw us and started hitting us so we did tae-kwon-do on them. It took a while but the ninja really hurt us .But I had one last trick up my sleeve. Thomas fell on to the ground and prayed for them to not hurt him and while the ninja were distracted I fought with the old man. He was very weak so it was easy to beat him .When he was on the ground. I hit the ninja from behind; it was as easy as playing football. Then we ran out the house and through the gate. “Ow,” said Thomas. “What’s wrong?” I said. He had a massive bruise so I helped him go home and it was only the afternoon.

Thomas 10

I went for a walk through the park I saw something that I never saw before. I went over to the gate was shut I opened it. I walked in they shut and locked I went on in to the darkness it looked like a graveyard. I saw my mum walk past I shouted at her but she didn’t hear me and it was getting late. My mum walked past so many times she was an ant. She walked over to me the gate opened she walked in BANG! The gate shut and locked what were we going to do.
My mum had her phone on her so she called my dad. He got here and the gate opened we ran out and were saved but my dad was in. We walked up it didn’t open he was as scared as an elephant is of a mouse. I looked at my dad he was crying.

Kerr 10

I was stuck in a graveyard I could not get out. I was scared there was nothing to do; I was not strong enough to open the gate. I heard a noise in the background. You WILL NOT GET OUT OF HERE. It was a dark autumn night. The noise sounded like a witch in the sky. It was so dark could not see. Aaaa! I think I saw it. It was a witch. She was hairy scary and tickly. Ow! I have got an idea climb very quickly over the gate and then the witch will not get me. I tried it. I got to the top and then I fell. That was sore. I fell she is getting closer and closer No she got me! I tried to kick her off. She was so strong. dadada! YES the gate opened. I’m free. First I need to get her off me. She flew away. I got out. Yes I’m free!

Blair 11

Philly was locked in the scary abandoned house. No one has lived in the house for eighty seven years. Suddenly, the dark green bushes started to close in. Philly wanted to go outside to the enchanted forest.
Two hours later he got squashed. His arm broke he had to get out but how? He thought to himself. Swoosh the gate swung open Philly was in now in the enchanted forest with all the orange autumn leaves on the ground and it was dark. He had to go back through the house. Philly came over his fears and went through the house. He the kitchen and he saw his mum and lots of children and adults and they all shouted Happy Halloween .The party was as fun as a bouncy castle.

Keira 10

I was walking through the graveyard and when I got to the exit gate it was locked. I was banging and shaking the gate but still nothing was happening! I was freaking out I didn’t know what to do.
Later on that day I was still stuck there thinking of what to do. Nobody has walked past and I started to cry because I was stuck in a freaky and spooky graveyard. I tried to climb the gate but I kept slipping and falling down. I screamed for help but silence hung in the air. All the leaves were falling on me.
It is starting to get dark and cold. I am shivering like when I get out of the swimming pool. I am really scared now because I am alone with no street lights. Then at seven o’clock precisely an old man came and unlocked the gate. I was as happy as I have ever been and I walked home and told my mum but she didn’t believe me.

Manjo and Carl 8 and 7

There was a tall big metal gate that I stood in front of. Everyone said that an old witch that turned children in to frogs and ate them lived there in the house behind the gate. I went there because my ball went over the fence when we were playing baseball. I pushed and struggled to open the heavy spooky gate. Maybe the witch left her broomstick outside the gate which I could use to fly over the gate. So I searched and I found a broom behind the oak tree. I mounted it but it didn’t do anything. “Maybe the broom only flies for its owner”, I said to myself. It started to get dark so I turned away from the old gate towards home.

Robbyn 9

It was the 31st of October and I was in a dark place where there was a closed black gate. Outside there were two trees. I was in a graveyard and it was Halloween. As it became dark I sat there wondering what would happen if I tried to climb out of the graveyard. So I tried to get out and the gate swung open and I went flying and I hit my head off a grave. It was Guy Fawkes grave. I was so scared because it was dark and it was Halloween. I was so scared I thought ghosts were breathing on me. So I ran and shouted, “Help! Help me!”

Tyla 12

All I remember is the sound of two cars smashing into each other…
Every foot step I made sent a chill up my back, making it hard for me to stand without losing my balance.

Everything’s starting to get so bright, the bushes are being covered in white beautiful flowers and I’m controlling my balance as I walk towards a massive unordinary gate. Then suddenly, as I put one hand on the gate, a powerful wind blew my hair backwards as if someone were pulling my hair aggressively. I then look back and see a glowing outline of a tall female but with what looked like two huge wings on her back.

“Why are you following me?” I asked nervously.
“I’m sorry, do you feel uncomfortable with angels guarding you, as you make your final steps towards the gate into heaven?” the angel replied with a grin

Dion V 13

As I walked into this horrific palace I spotted a wicked witch that wouldn’t stop laughing. Although I heard a loud scream, I knew what that meant murder, the horror house blood everywhere, there was knifes everywhere I was scared to take a step. The ongoing noises, the screams, and of course the dramatic screams of people getting murdered. Finally the cops arrive I thank them for taking the horrific killer, the town has been settling down, now that the killer has gone, everyone has calm down. HA HOO! I couldn’t believe that the murderer had come back once again to kill. Ahhhhhh! suddenly I heard another scream, he was at it again. The killer has striked again, there was no time to lose, all I need is to lose him and get out of here.

Sophia A 12

The sky suddenly took a turn for the worst. Gale force winds rose in minutes. Clinging on to my mother, who was struggling to stand, we were swept into a hedge. The jagged metallic lock rattled against the steel gate. When my mother stumbled, she smacked her head on the freezing cold concrete.

Seeing my mother knocked out cold, makes me feel sick to my gut. Within seconds I’m in a flashback! Confused on what’s happening, I see a vision of the exact place where we were before.

I slowly get to my feet sore with pain rushing to every part of my body. Sliding my foot forward, I approach the gate with a key in my hand from around my neck. Sliding the key into the opening of the paddock, wondering if this key would fit? a perfect fit!

The dark grey chain drops to the foggy floor below.

”Run, run, run, the wolves are coming”, a man said!!! Everybody ran to the gate and tried to open it. “Scary” the man shouted!!! We all ran to the gate, but nobody opened it because the gate was big. Everybody was scared from the wolves and the dark. All the people tried to run away from the wolves, but they can’t run away from them because the gate was locked.

Outside is really dark to you can’t see the grass’s colour. All Children are crying, but a boy wasn’t and he said on the back and thinking how to save people from the wolf. “I have an idea” the boy shouted. All people looked to him. “What is your idea”, they asked. The boy looked to the wall and said, “We can jump over the wall if we help each other”.
After all this, the boy saved his people

Chelsea B 11

Placing my feet on the gray pavement, I knew that I would have to start a new adventure.

I walked closer and closer to the gate; I saw a padlock, my hopes dropped. I pressed my hands against the gate, magically the gate swung open, hitting the hedge behind. I stepped passed the gate, placing my toes on the vibrant green grass. I turned to my right and saw a humongous castle, and then started to walk towards it. There was a three metre door that I could see, I ran then came to an instant halt, there was a man walking inside the building with funny shaped ears. The door closed, I quickly followed him inside. The door creaked open; I heard voices that came from the only lit up room in the castle. I saw a shadow come closer towards me. I had nowhere to hide.

Boyd M

walking through a dark forest clueless of where i am going a mysterious yet inviting gate. I looked through the gate I could see a wide open land. I tried to open the gate but my hand felt a pad lock inbetween the gate bars. I looked around and I unexpectedly found the pad lock key lying in the bushes. I picked it up and I unlocked the gate. I walked through the aged bars and all that is behind it was an open empty space. I thought it will be exiting but really it blew all the fun.

Shania B 11

It was a cold winter’s night, the dull, misty air feels the overcast atmosphere. The leaves on the trees sway side to side as the gentle breeze blows calmly in a peaceful way. However below all that gentleness was a gate. A mysterious gate was closed tight. No matter how many times you try pick lock the rusty gate it would just remain sealed shut.
Meanwhile an innocent, friendly girl comes strolling past along. With no adult and no friend to supervise her. Her name- Telilah, she was eager and loved to explore. Her hair was in cute piggy tales with a red, dotted bow on the side. Telilah had a face of an angel with a wonderful smile.
As Telilah trotted by the gigantic gate she held a special key her gran had given to her and said” If you spy a tall rusty looking gate use this key.!” Telilah revealed the great, golden key from her pocket, and inserted it in the hole, with a simple twist and turn. The gate unlocked. Talilah wandered inside. There was a sign – ‘Drop the key and turn away, if you touch this land you will pay!’

This really instigated shivers down Talilah’s spine, but shook her head and carried on. Out of the woods a shadow appeared. She started to run faster. The shadow moved quickly towards her faster than she….

Dillon S 9

I woke up. Skyscrapers were floating through the air majestically. I look over the edge. It’s high up here. I stagger. I stumble. And down I go. I float from under the water. Palm trees surrounding me. Water was gleaming from the hot rays of the sun waterfalls and birds chirping nicely, spring water fresh and smells nice. I came out from under a rock. I hop on the train. On the train it is like a racing car. Man, you should’ve seen my drifts. I even jumped THE ROAD. The life… I walk in. up the stairs. Look over the balcony. Playing with toys. Sitting by the fire, eating chips. Safe. Alone. “Nothing can hurt me now.

I was dawdling through a dark, mossy tunnel which seemed like an old abandoned subway. I was walking for what felt like days which was only a few hours. Then suddenly I see a faint light in the distance. I decide to pick up the pace, a pace my body has never been able to manage before. I reach a great metal gate. The scenery behind the gate was beautiful. There were lush green grass, bushy trees & a sky that is a gorgeous light shade of blue. Although the sky was so blue it might have been fake but I just shook it off. I looked back at the gate to see an unlocked padlock. It looks like someone has been here before. But still without hesitation I open the gate to be sucked into what seems like a dark & suspicious portal…

Jack approaches a gate and there’s darkness around him. There’s moss all over the wall. He only see’s one light that was powered out. He heard the gate creaking. He heard fighting on the other side. Then he had decided that he would go through the gate. So he walked through then everything suddenly froze. He turned around and the gate was gone. Jack then saw that everything un-froze and saw portals with big monsters wrestling. He ran around the place screaming because he was trapped there forever. He saw his dead father and mother and it was like he was in heaven. So he decided to stay and wrestle the big monsters. Jack asked his dead father how he died and he said that he died by wrestling a massive monster! He decided not to wrestle until he was forty. He turned forty and died by wrestling monsters.

Stepping towards the big black gates, a cold wind brushes through my hair.
My mind trembles at the thought of approaching the mysterious gloom ahead.
A strange yet calming song rings in my head. I slowly push out my arm, and reach for the padlock. Instantaneously the black metal type bars swing back with ease. Frozen, I don’t know how to take this. My feet stumble and I fall directly onto the cold concrete. Taking advantage of a new experience, my legs push me up and I dash faster than I ever thought I could. A horrific silhouette follows me home. I try to make out what figure is mysteriously creeping behind me. I am still left with the horrendous thought of… How did those gates open, with just the touch of my hand?

LUCYS LAST WORDS
Lucy Chambers Had only one choice, to look for her father that had been missing. For a decade now. Father said that he would be back in another fortnight in search for Aunt Clarisa’s death in 1995.
One day, when Lucy went out on a stroll down to the park her mother had come across a man wearing a top hat with a walking stick who said “What happens in the park stays in the park!” with one of his eyes half open.
Then, the old man walked over towards the black, old, rusty gate with inside of the gate was some sot of park back in the historical day.(BUT IT WASN”T)
“Father, father, where have you been for all these past ten years”
Then Lucy looked around and realised that wasn’t the only person there.

Paige H 13

The towering black gates shadowed over me, in the most intimidating way. A strange silhouette started creeping along the cracked stone path, towards the steel bars. The wind howled at me as the old padlock creaked open, a masculine figure appeared in front of my eyes. The large figure made his way slowly towards the front door of the old run down house. His heavy footed stride, ripped moss from the path, leaving footprints to follow. My shaking hands couldn’t be more noticeable; I held my breath and quickly found a thick Oak tree to hide behind. My heart raced against time, I was desperate to find a way to stay safe and get help… Both necessities were impossible right now, so instead I managed to carve a small hole beneath the back of the Oak’s roots. At this point I realised, my safety is being compromised, and soon I could be fighting for my life.

Kara 12

As I approached the gates, my heart pounds. No one knew what was beyond the gates until this very day.
I walked closer to the gates and cautiously opened them, waiting for something to surprise me. It’s not every day you see something like this.
Every one in the neighbourhood was terrified to even walk past the gates. I wasn’t, I was going to be the first to open the gates.
As the clouds hovered over head, I feel scared but not frightened. I had a look around, and then I realized a sign, that was there long ago. There is was just the closed up park. It is at that point I saw kids rapidly shaking the gate. I say to myself am I the only person that has the key. Yet there may be more to be found. As I have done what no others could do

Brooke 13

The grass is dying slowly beneath me as the wind howls with anger. The gate is shut tight. The trees move as if they’re trying to grab me. No one dares step one inch inside the gate. The padlock lays silently open waiting for its next victim. Giving a few brutal shoves, the gates creak open, finally. My friends watch by the trees. Stumbling down the steps into the fog. This place is really spine-chilling; I just want to get the dare over and done with. Hearing things moving in front of me. I slowly start walking backwards. I see its shadow moving in the fog. I try sprinting from it but I’m stuck frozen, suddenly it grabs me by the ankle. I scream,” help “my friends think it’s a joke. It has a tight grip, is this a nightmare, whatever it is I want it to stop!

Harry S 13

as I wake up the dark, gloomy sky shines upon my face; slowly I get with a sense of amnesia striking my brain. I think to myself how did I get to this mysterious place, when I turn around I see four pathways all leading different ways. Three of the paths lead into a dark, gloomy abyss, except for one that leads to a field.

I start briskly moving to the exit to see a fence blocking my way. I start slowing down to see that the fence is latched shut by an old, corroded padlock. I wrestle the lever open with my bare hands. The lock drops to my feet, the fence opens by its self, I walk through slowly not knowing what is going to happen.

I start hearing a beeping noise in my head, beep, beep, beep; I wake up to find it was only a dream.

Iona 10

As I walked through the rusty crooked black gate. I could feel my hands shake like a volcano about to explode. Then BANG the gate slammed shut, I ran over to it but it was locked. As I walked down the dark path a shiver went down my spine.
An hour later the clock struck one. The big clock tower dinged away. I turned around and saw someone. He came closer. He whispered in my ear you will never get out of here, I felt him breathing on my neck his breath was like hot lava. I turned around, he wasn’t there. I heard him again echoing in my head. But he wasn’t there, no one was there. I screamed as loud as a lion roaring it was truly terrifying. I felt creepy crawlies climbing up my back. I had to get out of there. Somebody walked past. I screamed and they helped me out. But when I looked back down the dark path………

Keira 10

It was five o’ clock near dawn. I went for a walk in the park. My friends ran ahead. I screamed, “Wait up guys.” They kept running, running and running. It was like they were pretending I wasn’t there. Finally I got to the gate and BANG! The gate shut. I was horrified, it was like a horror film but only I was acting in it. My friends asked each other where is Keira? I screamed, “I’M HERE HELP ME.” They all looked back to me. I said, “Help me open the gate”. They pulled, pulled and pulled but it just didn’t move. One of my friends ran back to get an adult but they didn’t get back till dawn. Finally at seven thirty my mum came. She pulled, pulled and pulled but it still didn’t move. At eight fifteen it opened and I screamed squeakily.

Emily 10

Screech! The gate swung open. “Hey guys wait up.” I walked through the gate. Nobody ever goes in the grave yard. I walked up to where my Gran’s grave stone is. Suddenly everything started spinning. I woke up in a white room. When I opened my eyes everything was blurry. “You can’t be seen,” a strange voice said to me. When my eyesight was back to normal I was in the graveyard.
I was an ice block. I ran to tell my friends what had happened. “Hey guys you will never guess wha…” they were gone. I looked around. The park was closed. A sign on the gate said “Open on Halloween 2014.” I had travelled back in TIME! I was terrified what if I never got back? Now I knew what he meant by ‘you cannot be seen’. I ran over to the grave. Then before I knew it I was back in 2014. “Hurry up,” yelled my friend. I was glad to be back.

Ciaran 10

“I need to get to the bomb”, I thought, “If I don’t get there in time the whole town will be blown to smithereens!” I was at the gate but this time it was locked! “HELP!!” I shouted but there was no one there.
I started looking for the key in all the graves but it was not there. “Ten minutes left”, I thought. My heart was pounding like this boom boom boom boom boom boom. “Finally I have found the key,” I said to myself. “Oh no, only 30 seconds left!” then KABOOM!! I tried to open my eyes but they were stiff. Then my eyes opened. I was falling through nothing then I landed on boiling hot sand. “HOT HOT!” I exclaimed. “WWWhere am I?” I realised I was on a massive beach in daylight.

Breanna 10

I was walking home from school with my friend. We went past a garden. It was abandoned. So we went to the gate. We saw a dog. We went through the gate and we went to the house with the dog. We went in the house and we heard a noise. It was as loud as an ambulance. We went rushing to the gate. We went out of the gate but we were in the house. We looked at the trees, the leaves all on the floor. We went back to the gate. I went in the gate. I was at the back of the house. I saw a shadow as dark as midnight. I screamed! My friend came. I was surprised. How did we come back to the house? I went back to the gate. I went through it. How strange! It let me out. It locked. I took the dog home.

Haydon 10

I was walking home when I saw a graveyard. I looked horrified and empty. I wanted to go in then I saw a gate. It was locked then I climbed the gate. It was dark as the midnight. I walked down a couple of steps they were damp and slippery. There were holes in the wall. Then I heard a BANG! I shuddered I saw a beam of light coming through the sealing. Then I saw a guy in black clothes. I started to run but he was too fast, very fast faster than lightning. OUCH! I ran into him suddenly he disappeared .I ran to the gate. I finally escaped.

Liam B 12

I was running.
Running for my life.
I had to get there.
Before anyone else.
I was running… to the haunted mansion auction!
I had to get there! I wanted it!

Once I got there, they were just starting the auction. The first guy said he was going to give a unicorn for the house, and that’s when I realised my competition was pretty stiff. And then I put up my hand and said a million dollars, but the auctioneer wanted the unicorn. I then put my hand up and said a rainbow, and won the house!

40 years later…

I’m still living in this house. I think I am losing my mind. So it turns out the house was haunted.
Earlier today, I saw a figure looking at me around a corner. It turns out it was the auctioneer who had ate the rainbow and went crazy!

Samuel Wright 12

I couldn’t wait to get out of this creepy house! There were pineapples everywhere attacking me from all directions. I was suddenly on the ground and I couldn’t get up. There were pineapples on top of me. Even though I was in extreme danger of suffocation I still really wanted to eat those juicy looking pineapples but I needed to escape! I tried to open the old, rusty gates but they wouldn’t budge. There was no way for me to escape…

Erick 11

Hidden behind the dark, rusty gate lays a mighty beast sitting down waiting for a brave, mighty person to challenge him! Suddenly, a person entered the rusty gate and knew that if he went through, he couldn’t go back out until he defeated the mighty beast waiting for him up ahead in the misty cave! Once he entered, the rusty gate suddenly closed right after he entered and had been lock by a magical spell! He went on through the misty cave to face his darkest fear!

Dash 12

Once, there was a simple garden. It may have been basic, but it was pleasant nonetheless. Though seemingly uncared for, many beautiful things grew there. Ripe fruit hung from trees and bushes, and bright flowers bloomed all around. The only twist was that all of it was completely poisonous and could be fatal if ingested or so much as brushed the wrong way. This garden represented temptation – look, but do not touch.

Sophie 12

I wanted to see for myself where that figure had been going. It had looked like a man, a cloak swaying from his broad shoulders. I carefully opened the rusty gate, as not to let out a creak and draw attention. I stepped through. On this side of the gate the clouds were low and the trees were moulting. Then I saw what I had come for. A small, wooden hut lay perched on the side of the meadow. I headed towards the hut to get a better view. I could see already the timber was rotting and the windows were gathering cobwebs. Suddenly the figure emerged from the back of the hut and I jumped behind a bush. But it was too late. The figure had caught sight of me…

Gus 12

BANG! The gates slam shut.
“Well, let’s pray to god that this is the day we get our family and lives back,” I whispered, not wanting to wake whatever might be in the “arena”. Jack and I scampered off into the darkness. This was a suicide mission as my friends said before we set off. But we were hoping our months of training would pay off.
We saw a spark of light in the distance…our first task…The Chase…

May 11

I walked steadily on the moss-covered stone path to the rusty gates of the park. Fresh autumn leaves glided gently down and nestled on the grass. The walls were dark and gloomy, but what lay beyond them on the locked gates was paradise compared to this black space. Suddenly, I ran forward and barged right against the gates, willing the lock to bust. It was like once I had the idea that I could escape, it stuck in my mind that I just had too, though the park seemed less and less vibrant each time I tried. But then I stopped, and turned around. A dark shape that resembled a human stood there with piercing green eyes…

Shalini 11

“Hey Jo. Pass the frisbee to me,” I shouted. I was facing back from the gate of the mysterious, viney hallway probably leading to a castle. I jumped up and I missed it. I tried to jump as high as I could but it was too high. I rang the door bell the lady asked who it was. “My name is Ava,” I said. “My frisbee landed onto your lawn. Can I have it back?” She said, “No! End of conversation!” and then I walked away with a thought. “I hope I can get another Frisbee.”

Ashlene 12

Swish… Swish… ‘Where am I?’ I thought. Confused and slightly conscious, I stood up wearily as the colossal trees and walls surrounded me. Blinking slowly I leaned against the humongous bushes that kept the shining light from coming in. As I pivoted to the gate, I wondered how I could escape this mysterious place. ‘I wonder who put me here and I wonder what they want?’ A man I hadn’t seen before who was sitting in the corner, arose and started to approach me. I backed up. I heard whispers. Whispers of children dreading and longing to get out get out of this prison.

Tobias 11

BOOM! The heavy, crude, cast-iron gates slammed shut, excluding the spooky house from the outside world and shutting out the light creating a ghastly picture right in front of me. The big trees outside cluster my view of the house. The sun went behind a cloud, and out of the shadows appeared…a pink fluffy magical rainbow unicorn!

Ben 11

Astonishingly, as soon as I woke up, I was behind a mysterious looking gate with two trees ahead of it. I turned around; there was just a stone wall. I obviously had to walk through the gates. I approached it, filled with fright, knowing I would regret it. I slowly opened them. It screeched as I turned the gate leading to a hell home. I looked around, on the left hand side was a path and on the right hand side was a haunted looking house. I didn’t feel like going towards the path because it could go on forever, but if I went through the house I could die. At least if I go in I will die whilst filled with dignity. I walked into the house and saw a creepy looking flight of stairs. I walked up them and saw a photo. It said ‘you are too late…’

Lochlan G 10

I woke up and I was trapped in a steel gated maze. There was a younger boy there with me. I asked him what his name was but he just stared at me as if I was talking gibberish. I got up and tried to climb but it was no use so I ran round the maze looking for the way out. As I were running round the maze I came across a small door way. I got down on my knees and crawled my way through a misty hole that led me in to a small house. I looked around and that’s when I saw a terrible mess it was a dead baby with a mark on it’s for head. It looked like an ancient hieroglyphic that came from Tutankhamun ages (which was only about twenty years). Someone or something was behind me. I turned round and there it was.

Cory 11

In the year 2008 there was a ninja called zane and he was trapped in an unknown prison with enemies that were planning to invade the world. But he doesn’t know that there in the prison but they know he’s in the prison. When Zane started walking down the stairs he saw a chest that had light glowing out of it so he walked over to have a look in it. Then he saw an alien walking past him and the alien started chasing after him with a sword in his hand trying to capture him and there was an other alien chasing him as well then he got caught. When the aliens took him back to the jails at there camp they made him eat 18 spiders and then shoved worms in his mouth for 18 hours and then they didn’t feed him for 48 hours. The next day they let Zane go.

Calum 10

One day I was stuck in jail and I’ve been trying to get out ever since. I came in and you would understand if you were me but you’re not so you don’t know how I felt. But never got passed a certain gate and it needed a special key to open it but it is on guards belt every time I get it I get court and taken to a further cell so I have to sneak passed the guards and there are like 49 of them and it gets harder every time because there comes more but right now there are 49 exact spot on 49 guards. But only today is it that I got out and freedom and I’ve remembered since.

Sam F 11
One day I found an old pair of gates could this finally be freedom so let me tell you how I got here one day me and my mother got separated in a maze I walked for I don’t know how long but I never found here. But now was my chance to escape me carefully examined the gate there was a slim foot hole so I climb I not after falling a lot by the end of the day I felt like giving up but I spent too much time and effort to give up now after a hole day of trying I made it over and there was my dad waiting there as if it was planned with my mum I ran to here and she said ‘’were have you been like it had only been a though minutes. But that what it felt like to a kid

Nathan J 10

I was walking to church to get rid of my bad sins. I was nearly there until I saw a new path and gate so I walked through. I went in-between two trees and I saw children playing. It was a memory that I like of me and my friends playing Frisbee. Somehow I played with them for 15 hours. I found out that it was a new way to get to the new church. People who lived in the church called the field memory field because it brings back memory. I got rid of my bad sins at the new church and went back home.

Elliot D 11

Sssshhh, the bushes whistled whilst the leaves sprang to a leap next to the old, creaky gateway into the darkest cemetery of all.
Everyone, well my theory is that everyone should be scared of the cemetery, because one night a teenager around sixteen or seventeen left home one night and didn’t return. I’ll start from the beginning a teenager went out one night to remember her grandad and mysteriously she heard a ‘CRACK’. She examined the area and questioned who is there? What are you? Are you an animal? She heard no reply, so she ran until she could hardly breathe. She had her note book with her so wrote the events of that night, and this is how I know this remarkable story. She ran through a forest right beside the cemetery and made a, bright sparkling, camp fire. Then she heard a growl and suddenly, she was gone…

One day a careless god called Death roamed the earth searching for adventure. He then found himself upon the mighty stone vail which the gates were bound by all of his brothers. Only War remained; he had been searching for the chosen one .When destiny and peace passed into the hands of the crow father, their powers passed onto a young boy. Death’s nephew Oculus had absorbed all the power of his father and uncle. Oculus sought the vail and was elated to hear his uncle will accompany him on this reckless journey.
Oculus rode on Deaths horse Despair held on tightly. When the journey ended Oculus wondered of looking for chests hiding valuable weapons. They then walked to the gates of the vail. Oculus started to act weird he would close his eyes and think of the gate to be open and it opened. Death and Oculus were astounded…

Tyler 10

Sam and Bob are getting ready for the school race. They were running around the park. Bob tripped and fell into a bush. He started to get up but then slipped in mud and rolled down a hill into a gate. The gate was old and rusted Bob tried to walk through the gate he tried flying over the gate he even tried eating the gate.
Sam was looking all over for Bob but then Sam fell down the hill into the gate. Sam was smarter than Bob. Sam opened the gate by pushing it. Bob and Sam walked through the open gates into a huge garden owned by a rich man Bob and Stan got kicked out.

They came last in the school race.

Katie 10

Me and my friends live near some gates to a castle. People say the castle is the most haunted place in the world but we always thought it was the grave yard in the garden of the castle. Or the story someone told us. They said that a young family lived behind them gates. But they had a pond in the garden but the children were playing tag until they fell in to the pond the parents did not see it and they walked backwards and fell in so now they haunt the castle. Poppy, Tali and I did not believe in it tough .We fought it was just a flood thought because the gates were covered in moss we tried to climb the mossy gate once it was the 15 time we tried we got over we ran to the castle we entered I cried I don’t want to go.

Lillie H 10

Libby M 10

one day me and my friends were playing football in the park. We were playing in teams it was me and my friend Oscar and we were against my other friends Mia and Sam. Sam belted the ball really hard and it ended up in the Adams front garden. The Adams were the worst people ever. The kids Lola and Rodric bully me and my friends at school and their mum is the head teacher of our school so when ever we told her about their kids bullying us she would give us detention. No one wanted to go in and get it because they were scared that Lola and Rodric would hurt them. We did rock paper scissors to decide who was going in to get the ball I lost and had to go in to get it. I climbed over the gate and got the ball but dogs came out and started barking at me I ran like mad and luckily got out just in time.

Kieran 10

I walked into a house like no over hoping that I could run because the fear of the past is kill me one part at a time. I’ve always ran but a long time ago I lost everything in a night it all happened when my long lost sister returned with a new illness that gave her two weeks to live so I robbed the gate’s there richest people a live but that’s the day my life ended .

Tali V 10

The opening door of the jail is like warmth in the frosty wind beckoning you out. The green sneaky bushes threaten you like a murderer in the dark. When you first see those creaky gates rattling in the wind, you run wild with excitement not caring about the officers. They drag you into jail once again for not being trustworthy. Fighting and fighting against the strong muscles but you never win. Now it’s been one whole year and they’re letting me out again, this time I’ll keep myself straight and not let excitement strike me. We walk through the maze of hedges that go on for ages. The gates open, they are opening to freedom. I couldn’t help but run. I lurked in the backstreets waiting for scraps to eat. People look for me now but it is a mystery now I committed suicide on myself. I’ll be gone forever.

Muhammad Umair 10

Ever wondered what it would be like in Parallel Earth? Well, you’re about to find out!

Yes, here I am running out of this building because I have seen something too terrifying to explain. I never want to see it again. Never ever! I was running for my near-to-end life until BANG!

I crashed into a large, metal door. Drat! The door was locked!
“Wait a minute! If this is Parallel Earth then everything is opposite!” I shouted as courageous as a lion. I looked at the cage and realised the key was on my side! I looked back and saw it! It was staring at me. Then BAM! I lied on the floor with eyes closed. But that wasn’t the end! Oh no!! This story just got started!

Zineerah 10

Shimmering and glistening lay my pearl. I always kept it around my neck.

“Where was it? Where had it gone?” I looked everywhere. But at the foot of my bed was a letter. It said that your pearl is in the haunted gate. Also it said that if you want it come to get it. However it said that if you don’t get out with in two minutes you will be locked forever!!!

So I went. Moments later I was in. Hello, um hello is anyone there. I looked around, there it was. But before I could get it. Bang the gates were shut.

Yahya 11

The park was silent. Deadly silent. I walked over to the gate and pushed it. Nothing. There was a tap on my shoulder. I spun around. There standing before me was a bandaged mummy. I had only heard about mummies in Egyptian stories. Suddenly fear ran down my spine.
“Hello sonny. Do you know where Ramses’ palace is?” he asked.
“No.” I said totally bewildered. With a loud CRACK the mummy vanished.
“Wow” I muttered.” Who is HE?”
“It is I young boy. I the scribe of Ramses III. “Said a grumbling voice. Before I could turn around, there was a scream. When I turned round, I promptly fainted.
When I came to my senses I was in a buzzing hospital. I went over to a nearby nurse and asked if I could leave. Before she said anything she vanished. Something strange is going on I thought. I better investigate…

Aleesha 11

I was there lying under the bear tree. It was autumn. I was just throwing a ball and catching it, t was all peaceful and calm. Suddenly a black cat appeared. It had bright green eyes, black fur and a pink colour which said Devila, then I realised she was a girl. She came close to me. She had a note on her which said “follow me”. I followed her through a peaceful wood I was enjoying my self until all of a sudden I came to a grand gate the cat went through .I stopped for a second the cat stated purring at me. I went through the large gates. As I went through the gates slammed behind me. I was scared. When I looked behind myself the cat had disappeared. There was no way out.

Asad M 11

As I approached the mysterious and ancient gate, I stopped and turned around to check if I could still hear the cackle. Luckily I could not although I had that feeling which told me to turn to the gate and make a sly escape. Glancing at the walls on both sides of me, they were covered in moss and the gate made a creak as I opened it. Gradually, I stepped out and something or someone grasped my arm. Maybe I went to sleep because I don’t actually know what happened after that…

Abdullah.p 11

It was the night of a full moon.
Cautiously, I sat up and looked around the gloomy, fear revealing alley. I peered behind me and saw a pair of red, blood-coloured eyes glaring at me.
I got up speedily and sprinted as fast as I could down the cold, damp alley .I skidded ’round the corner so quickly I nearly lost my footing but I regained it and began, once again, to run.
I came to an old, rusty, steel gate and tried to yank it open. It was locked. What would I do?
I rotated slowly on my heels and came face to face with a grey, dark-haired, sharp-toothed, snarling werewolf

Atiyyah 11

I’m scared scared as ever because I don’t know how many days I’ve been here. Running quickly. Uh oh it’s a dead end!

I swiftly turned and before me stood an ancient, rusty gate. Should I open it ? I can’t. I need to gather ALL my courage first.

Walking up the gritty, dirty stairs gave me a cold shiver down my spine. The gate was as tall as a giraffes’ neck.

The walls around were emblazoned with moss. The walls were wide yet humongous! I quickly scanned the area and it was creeping me out.

Finally, I gathered the courage to open the gate. The gate creakily slowly opens; I could not do anything but to escape…

Sanah 10

The gates of the mysterious area creaked open and I reluctantly entered!

I could hear screeches and screams, wails of agony, people laughing hysterically at me! Suddenly I saw it …
a horrendous, hideous monster. Slowly I gulped and ran as fast as my legs could carry me. My screams tore the leaves apart- The green eyed monster flew after me. Suddenly I ran over a dead body, the body sucked me in. This hurt me it was a sort of deadly pain. In a split second all I could hear was the monster laughing at me. There was my precious blood splattered everywhere! Now I am one of those souls which you can hear when you open these doors.
‘ CREEAAK!’

Arfa.J 11

I was going to the park to play when I tripped over a rock near the humongous trees that were really tall. As I got up to carry on walking something was making a strange sound from the left side of me so I turned around to see what it was.

Suddenly, the gate creaked open and welcomed me inside it felt like I was possessed .I was feeling all funny and weird what was happening to me?

Sobia.J

The gates were locked with ten chains. Was I dreaming or was this real?

Here’s what happened. I was walking to the shops whilst I was throwing my coins up and down. Suddenly I tripped over a stone and my coins fell and rolled through the gates into the haunted garden. I was so scared I thought should I go or should I not then I realised I need to get my coins back because they were precious. As soon as I got in the gates, they were locked with ten chains. Fast as I could I ran to the gates and quickly climbed up and tried to escape from the person in the black cape. Luckily I didn’t and I was shot down really badly with a gun.

Fatima M 10

As I peered through the antique, rusty, iron black gate from my dark dull passage; I saw two empty trees. The leaves rustled and it was like the trees were waving ‘HELLO’ to me.

I was frightened and cold, it was a dark dull sky. The thunderstorm was just about to burp. I was in prison as I had been a criminal. I am in guilty and I still stand alone to this day in this dark dull passage with a beautiful view in front of my eyes.

I used to think that the forest was a delightful and happy place to visit, but not anymore. Not after the gruesome death of Emily Anderson. No one would dare to step foot in a wintery forest again.
It all began on a foggy winter’s night and Emily was building a large snowman in the forest. From the corner of her eye, she noticed a solid black gate. Confused, she went up to it and entered. In a flash, a black evil wolf with fire red eyes ran as fast as lightning and ate her juicy flesh. Blood was splattered everywhere! From that moment until today, her frozen body remains rotting in the forest where nobody knows.

As I entered the mysterious maze, Big Ben struck midnight like never before. The freezing cold wind shivered down my spine. As I started walking, I heard a bark, I stopped. Happily, it was a dog outside the maze; I thought dogs don’t appear at midnight!

Sneakily, I started tip-toeing; as I was tip- toeing I heard a howl! Soon I heard a gun! BANG!!! From that moment I saw blood oozing on the floor.1 hour later, I soon realised I was in the middle. I thought to myself, what should I do? Weirdly, I tried to camouflage to the side of the maze; then I thought no – one will be here at this time so I went and carried on walking. At last, I reached the exit; it was morning…

it was sunny. And I was in the park, when suddenly I saw a crusty gate. In the gate was a haunted house. It looked spooky! Then I said to myself, there’s a ghost. Then a vampire appeared, there were lots of cobwebs. Seriously, I saw a see-through witch with a mole on her nose. Then the man in the house said, “Do you want a cup of tea?” and I said, “I don’t mind if I do.” Then the witch followed me into the creepy house. In the house was a forest. It was 3D, with vampires walking along, and cobwebs. “Why is your house so spooky?” I asked the man. The witch’s legs were as spiky as a hedgehog. While I was drinking my cup of tea, I was walking around the house, it was really scary. Then a door opened and there was a Halloween train. There was ghost trolls. It was as scary as a ghost whispering in my ear. It smelt like dusty cobwebs. That was that! I ran home.

I went into a haunted park and I heard a loud Bang! I saw a spooky gate and it opened by itself. Then I heard a creepy noise and I got really frightened and I saw a magnificent witch. The witch saw me and I saw the witch, her nose was as sharp as scissors. She looked mysterious. Quickly, the witch walked closer to me, she even had a really big wart on her nose. She looked soooo ugly! Then the witch got her wand out and she turned the bushes into spiders. Finally, she went away. I was really scared, it was really creepy. I found myself in a maze and I walked around the maze. Then I got lost. I was terrified! I saw a vampire and it was chasing me and it bit me…

Logan 7

cautiously, I peeked around the corner of the hardest maze. First past piranhas! Next I jumped across the lillypads like a frog. I had to be careful because you can’t walk on water. I did it! There was the gate – Oh no! The gate was locked! I searched in the high hedges for the key. Then I saw a plate thing was on the floor I stood on it. I fell into a big hole. Chinese ghosts were flying like a bird I pulled off the cover there were birds everywhere they just got stuck in the covers. I pushed my way through the birds and escaped into the park.

Casper and the graveyard
spookily, Casper was flying around on the scariest holiday of them all! Halloween. When the wind rustled it woke up Casper. Then when Casper was awake the gate was creeking. Casper saw children. He wanted to get out of the graveyard but he was stuck in the graveyard like a lion stuck in a cage … but then he saw a big girl and a small boy saying, “trick or treat?” The boy and girl got their candy from the house and came to the gate, the girl was dressed as a devil and the boy was dressed as a skeleton, then they came over and opened the gate to the graveyard and saw proper eyeballs. The boy and girl freaked out it was freaky the gate was creaking and there was smoke everywhere. They tried to run away, but the gate was locked…

Harley 7

I am looking for the lost tomb. I open the gate (oh and I forgot to tell you I’m half human and half zombie). Ok I’m in the cemetery now. Then I saw zombies so I oh you might not wanna know about this it’s gruesome! Next, I found the tomb saying “Don’t open!” Guess what? I opened it and found a zombie chasing after me. So I said “oook!” Oh and it had red blood all over it and manky teeth. I went to get it with my disintegrater; however, the zombie dodged it. I kicked it. It screamed as loud as a newborn. I hit it with my disintegrater. He dropped to his knees, I smelt him and he was dead!

Natasha 8

I was very excited because the circus came to our local park. The park gate creaked open. Then I saw the funny clown open the gate and he fell down the stairs. I heard the clown drive home in his red car (the car was driving away with all the fair rides) and the circus and everyone went. I said to my parents, lets go and find the clown and off they went. I saw the clown going round the corner and then he stopped at the front of my! and started taking fair rides into my garden! and it was like a fair was going on in my garden. Then my family came and said “Wow!” this is amazing!

Ethan 7

Spookily, a ghost called Whisper was in a rotten old grave in a graveyard next to a park. Whisper was terrified. He said “I am as quick as a mouse”. Randomly, he went to the gate. The gate teleported him to a haunted house. At the haunted house he met another ghost called Jasper. He was a very nice fellow. The house was massive. In there was a Chinese chef. He was called Billabow. There was something mysterious about him.
One spooky night, there was a discovery that the chef killed a ghost. Whisper said, “Good grief, why did we believe him?” Jasper and Whisper looked to see if they could spot him. Suddenly they spotted him. Luckily, Whisper splashed him with a potion of poisonous water. Billabow disappeared in a puff of smoke and Whisper fell back into his grave.

Desperately i wanted to jump over the black and old fence. There were about 500 police after me and one Army Force Helicopter. The gate was locked. My feelings were running down my mind like a waterfall. My heart was beating as fast as a Buggati driving. At that moment i did not have a clue what to do or where to go. I had a plan i give the black and old gate a mighty old kick and it broke. After all what had happened I ran as fast as Usaint Bolt to Manchester and I had lost them even the Helicopter. I was as happy as a child would be when there mum or dad had bought them an ice cream.

Sarah 7

The ghostly graveyard…

At the end of a pretty park there is a ghostly graveyard. And in the ghostly graveyard is a ghastly ghost!
Spookily, Gladys the ghost tortured me and seized my brain. I was terrified! I ran away as fast as a cheetah because I was so scared. Later that day, I went back to the graveyard to see my Nan that was dead.
“How are you”?” Are you still a ghost “? I whispered.
I smelled the blood that Gladys drank.” Gladis you’re my Nan”! Later on me and Gladys went for a walk round the graveyard. I saw a gate. It was rusty and it rattled and clattered. Later on, I found a key, the key seemed to glow. What is happening today? “Oh, Oh, OH, I must be dreaming,” I think I was scared.

Charlie W 7

One day, when I was in the park, I was so excited because the gate opened!
Someone walked in. A stranger walked through the rusty crusty gates! The stranger pushed me over and I banged my head on the stairs behind me. “Ouch!”
His eyes were almost popping out, his face was dripping blood. He was hurting me.
Suddenly, I fell down the steps. Freezing frost was glistening on the rusty crusty gates. Ghostly, the frost came down from the rusty crusty gates. I felt like it was surrounding me. I was terrified. I ran back through the gate and the stranger was gone, back in to the castle.

Suddenly there was a big gush of wind and I got carried away too a different place the sun was glowing brightly everything was glowing brightly except a gate, a steel gate. Above the steel gate everything was turning navy black even the sky. I didn’t know what to do, open the gate or run away?

Jacob 8

The mystery gate
Dark, dark hedges were everywhere at the drive way. Daniel entered the graveyard through the rusty, old gate. The trees are swaying back and forth. Daniel thought it might be a private property and school. There was a big patch of grass inside it. Daniel wished he hadn’t gone in because it looked like people had come back to life. He saw a haunted house and a witch and all of the other monsters. The monsters kept singing “Hit me with your best shot”.
What do the monsters mean? Daniel got very scared and he thought he was about to die so he ran away out of the gate.

James 9

Walking through the gate I saw a wolf. The wolf looked hungry and I did not want to be on the menu so I flashed down to the creepy house. There were cob webs and I also saw two red eyes looking at me. I had no chance of surviving and then I thought I should have got eaten by the wolf.

Jax 9

The Mystery Gate
The freezing wind was killing Jake’s vision. He was almost across the park when he saw it; an abandoned gate which had been rusted.
Jake was curious so he climbed over the gate to check it out. When he got in, he found a pathway that led to a door that had lots of strange interesting stuff like bloody animals heads and stuff like that. But right then he heard a weird creepy sound and he didn’t know was going on. But he realised that the walls were closing in! He was going to get squished, so he climbed back over the gate and ran back to his house and never came back again.

Luca 12

As I approached the mysterious looking, overgrown gates, I was having a moments thought that I might never come back. As I was coming toward the suspicious gates I noticed something in my mind attempting to draw me away. But I couldn’t resist the temptation of going somewhere that I’d never been before. I prodded the gate to check I wasn’t dreaming. Then I realised how stupid I was to forget what my own house looked like.

Harrison 12

The heavy iron doors swung open with the lock and chain in my hands. I entered the courtyard over looking the huge mansion and made my way towards it. My legs started to tremble as I reached for the massive door knocker in the shape of a bat. It opened before my hand could touch it and the man standing there… he was terrifying! With a long jaw and claws for fingernails he mumbled in a deep Russian / Transylvanian accent “Vat do you Vant?” I gulped and said “I’m here about the… ice cream? His face lit up and joyfully said “Come in! I got a new flavour!” I smiled “What flavour?” “BLOOD!”…

Jasmine 12

Am I going to go back to the outside world ever again? My brain is blank, can’t think of any ways to go out. I tried everything, every time I touch or get close to that gate, I get burn. I am died inside already.
One day, I met an old lady, she told me if I want to go out, I need to go and find the Magic Clock which is in this unknown garden. So I can go back to the past.
I ran into the darkness, straight after she finished her last sentence. I keep running, towards the dark door at the end of the garden. I used all my power to open that door.
I found the clock, pushed down the arrow…
I am out!

Jack 12

As I wandered towards the black Iron Gate I hesitated, not because it wasn’t my own home but because of the dark damp passage way that brought me to the tall obsidian door. I knocked on the door. It was opened to a burly dark-haired man dressed like a vampire. “Trick or Treat” I howled like an excited chimpanzee.

Dear diary,
You’ll never believe what happened to me but it’s true .I was walking to the church graveyard. The gates were open so I knew that I could go in. The gates were as black as coal but by the way they had been painted black.
I walked in OW, I banged my head, the gates had shut. I tried again. Now my head (really, really) hurt, I also felt dizzy! I jumped over! Then all of the zombies came to me, “Oh, hi dad.|” “HHHEEELLLOOO” he said! Oh look there’s your friends. I walked to them. AAAAHHHH! I fell into dads hole! Suddenly I was outside of the church, “BYE dad” I shouted.

Kaylan 8

I was walking down the dark spooky ally way. I saw some tall guards as tall as an elephant. I saw the haunted castle with splashes of blood on it. I tried to get through the gates but it was locked, they went GO AWAY. We went out and we saw a ghost. The gate was rusty, old and creaky. We decided to get the scary ghost. We had a plan. Our plan was …buy a net, get ghost food and scare the guards away. We made a checklist. We had everything on the checklist. We went to the castle and we said to the guards “BOO!” and they ran away, I said “Well that was easy.” We found the key under the mat quickly. We went into the castle. We got the net and waited for the ghost. Finally it came, we got the net and threw it on the ghost. Suddenly, it disappeared.

It was a bright sunny morning, the sun was shining brightly on all the people. Helena, whose age is 10, loved going for adventures and solving mysteries, ESPECIALLY. In her town was a park which was believed to be haunted. Helena tried a lot of time to go in but someone would always come and stop her. Helena couldn’t bear it so she decided to secretly sneak in at night. It was all dark and gloomy when Helena reached the gate. She opened it. She saw fairies and pixies wondering around. She was really happy that it was full of nice stuff instead of evil. In the morning, she told all of the people what she had seen. The people decided to give her a chance. They opened the door and were full of excitement. From that day, all of the people came to play with the fairies.

My mum told me at home that this is where I would meet the fun fair. For some reason, the gates were closed. I turned around and looked back at the door. It was wide open. I surveyed the area and entered the park, it was bare but I saw a kid playing football, so I decided to go away and go to my friend’s house to play on his x-box. But for some reason I forgot the way and an eerie sound hollowed in the faint distance started to fret and feel lightheaded. After that, there seemed to be an ominous glow in the distance with hints of red and yellow in the gloomy sky. Then turquoise bats the size of mammoths soared through the air with a man that had a yellow handlebar moustache with a glinting iron sword and preparing for war. AAAAAARRRRRRRGGGHHH!!!!! It’s just a dream, phew.

Jaspreet 10

Later that day, a marvellous burst of sunlight beamed at our eyes so we decided to go to the park and have fresh air to cool us down .While we were on our way appeared and stood there was a dirty and smelly man with a bin bag to pick up rubbish and throw it in. There was a gate there with children staring at the man. So they met the man and had tea with him. Quickly we went to the park because the man looked like he had a bunch of different kinds of germs. So they headed to the park and because of that man we got to play for only five minutes. Luckily they wondered of because they would catch more germs and not played for that long in the park so they finished and they headed home because it was getting very, very, very late

Deepanshi 11

Every day, I walked past the strange gate of Gunsberry Park. One day after all, I had enough courage to open the gates of this ancient park. I gingerly walked my hair flying behind my back. I saw many graves. The field was filled with graves, that field had many poppies growing. I could hear the leaves rustling and in the distance I could hear wolves howling maybe they were werewolves. Faraway I could see a figure digging out some graves. My heart started beating faster than before. I heard something behind me so I turned my head around to see. Nothing. I started running as I thought there was someone there I ran, I heard footsteps chasing me. As I ran I found a door I thought it was the way out. I opened the door and ran out…. I found out it was HELL ON EARTH!

It was a Sunday morning when me my friends were going to the cinema to see a movie on the way we saw a gate it was scary and gloomy night. My friend went inside the gate and he never came out for hours but then we heard scream. I just saw his clothes and his watch thrown out the gate. Then I told my mum but she never believed me. Then I thought I should call the cops so I called them. Then they did the investigation they found his body and they found the killer. We took my friend to the hospital and now he is fine.

Rawan 10

There is that ancient gate I see every day. I opened it. There was nobody there. What happened? Am I dreaming? Am I in heaven? I searched everywhere still nobody there. Suddenly out of nowhere the trees fell down, the grass disappeared. Suddenly it started to get dark, and darker. What’s happening? Is my life haunted? All of a sudden there was a tornado! What…is…happening! HELP ME! I was trapped like a mouse. Out of nowhere there came two eyes glowing and just staring at me. There was a flash and I was back in my cosy bed but luckily it was a dream!

Eliza 11

Every day, I walk past the spooky, dark and scary prison bars I have a feeling that hands are going! POP! Out and grab me in. On the floor all I could hear are leaves crunching and howling along the concrete. The trees are long and the leaves were scrunched up. After a while, I came back to the gates and peeped trough the gates. I saw some revolting creatures going toward the gates. They reached their hands and actually grabbed me. They threw me in the park and went inside a tree. The tree was creepy and had tangled branches. Then the leader popped out his head and looked at me. His workers picked me up and threw me in a narrow tunnel. The floor was very deep and the man was sitting on a golden throne. Then I found out it was all a dream TO BE CONTINUED…..

Lily-May 7

One day I went to the park, there was a big hole and there was a black kitten. It was going to go and fall down the tunnel. I ran and grabbed it. Suddenly, it bit me with its big, white, shiny teeth. I fell into a deep, deep, deep sleep. I woke up, I had fallen down the hole. I had landed in the world of witches. Behind me was a haunted castle. There was a big gate. It was as black as coal. The walls were covered in green, slimy moss. It was as slimy as ever and it felt like rotten old snot. Suddenly, a witch came from the back of me and scooped me up. I could feel myself going up in the air. It was my dad! I asked him what he was doing there. He said that he lived in the castle with my mum. The end.

One day there was a boy, his name was Sam. One afternoon he was on his way to his grandmas and half way there was a gate. It was rusty and old. He managed to push it open and on the other side there was a field. At the end of the field there was grandma’s home. I stepped on a button. Suddenly, a ghost was coming at me. He cried “Aaaah” and the boy ran as fast he could. The ghost was gone. He walked a little further, strangely there was a chalet. Suddenly, four ghosts and two zombies appeared. One had an axe. He ran and ran. There was a building and he ran inside. Behind him there was a massive monster zombie with six missiles and an axe in his head and a knife in him. Back home he told his mum but she didn’t believe him.

“Mum, can I go to the park?” Now I am walking to the park. When I got to the park I saw a huge gate. I went down to the rusty gate. I saw a dog going down, down, down to the ground. Then I ran home to my mum and said to my mum there is a gate and the dog is going down, down to the ground. So my mum came to the park to save the dog. When we got to the gate the dog had gone. After that we went home for lunch and I had jam sandwiches. Then I went down to the park and played on the swings then went to see the gate. After that, I tried to open the gate but it did not work. I am still trying today!

Suddenly, I found him… IN THE FOREST OF DOOM! “Oh no!” I thought, “I won’t give up”. I had to run and run and run. All too soon I had got there. “I found you!” I shouted. “But how are we going to get back?” I said. Suddenly, a magic carpet returned. “hop on!” said the magic carpet. What? A carpet can talk and fly?? “I’ll take you home.” said the flying carpet. So my dog and I got on. Woooosh we went. Yes, woooosh back out of the hole.

Hafsa 10

It was a chilly Saturday morning and I was heading to the park with my friends as usual. Linsbud park .as we arrived I saw something peculiar .something rather peculiar .something that has never been there before, well I never saw it. I stared at it forever, not blinking, not talking, and not laughing. It was a rusty, ancient gate. There was also a fat, chubby policeman who was supposed to guard the gate but actually had melted chocolate hanging out his mouth and he was sleeping. Then my daring friends drew straws to see who was going to sneak up the gate. I was completely confident it wasn’t going to be me! Unexpectedly it was! When I clinched my hand on the gate pillar I was shivering like a old lady in snow. After that I quickly ran over the adventurous gate and guess what I saw after that, it was a miracle. Do you see what I’m seeing?

In front of him was a huge spooky castle. He was spooked. Suddenly, lots of Zombies started to attack the man. A little while later, he died from all of the serious head injuries. When the clock struck 12, he rose through his own grave and was a ZOMBIE! Quickly he reached London town. everyone wondered how did he rise from the dead? A little while later the SWAT team came on the case. All of the SWAT team died because he got angry. He smelled gas and he was trapped because the last person threw a grenade. I killed the zombie! There was no sight of a zombie ever again.

Aisha 11

Every day I walk past the gates thinking what could happen? Many questions are running through my head. Suddenly, a shiver ran down my back. I turned around to see what was going on. There were men walking through trying to camouflage into the grass or trees. How did they enter the park? There are gates with locks on it and tall stone walls. They came in with shovels and a huge lock. They walked towards a tree and were it looked as if they were talking about something important. I wonder what they could be talking about. Every day I see them. One day I dared myself in, I stood behind a tree and tried to hear what they were talking about. However it was very hard to hear. I gave up. Suddenly, I heard a horrific noise everything had gone black. I’ve been caught. I lay there still.

Isabelle 8

I saw the big gate and it looked very hunted the gate was scary the door opened and scared the girl and its dog was scared! The gate opened with a bang. Me and my dog wanted to go in the creaky house and it was very scary and freaky. She walked through the haunted house, she was very scared, while she was walking through the house. The haunted house was as haunted as a dark bat. When they went up the stairs, they went all the way up and it was a scary house. When they went in a room and it had all cobwebs in and a scary picture of a ghost.

Afsha 10

As I walked towards the gate it flung open. There were many question bubbling in my head such as how did that happen? I walked forwards and saw trees bright green and deer’s eating leaves. I stared at the deer and they stared back as if it was saying hello. I reached out about to tap it when it when it leaped away. All of a sudden a cat came out and curled around my legs. There was something that was streaming. There was a river of pure water, milk, and silky honey. There was seven dwarfs and snow white filling their buckets from the rivers. Then on the other side there were beauty and the beast in the orchard choosing flowers. Then Cinderella and the prince came and invited me in their garden. I had some jam and scones made by the mouse’s. I waved goodbye and went happily.

Luckily it was a dream

Alafiya 11

Hidden land behind the Gate
There was a gate. A gate that sealed a magical park. Of course no one knew. I was the only one. I was the only one who could see it. Behind it I could see trees, trees and more trees. I felt as if someone was watching me. I, to my awesome predictions, was right. There were fauns, Dryads and river Gods. Streams of milk and honey. Then out of the blue river a queen arose. Out of the milk river another queen appeared. Suddenly out of the trees came two kings. Instantly, I knew who all of the people and creatures were. The two kings were James the high king and Arthur. The two queens were Amber and Kate. The gate mysteriously opened. Aslan (The narnian lion saviour) approached.
“Come child let me bestow on you the sword of gallantry.” I walked to him…

One sunny day I was walking .and I saw a gate. I walked through the rusty gate and was surprised to see a beautiful park with flowers. and the smelly green grass. I decided to play on the beautiful park. I was playing on the slide and I saw a stranger. He had a big brown patched up face. he was looking round the park, he picked some of the sparkling gems up and put them in his sack. I went to see what he did. He was still ok. He was now stealing even more gems from the park. The stranger, dressed in dirty clothes, gave the gems, they were fantastic. Loudly, we were laughing our hearts out. We said “we are best friends forever.” Just then the stranger had to go home but the stranger said “We will always be best friends forever.”

Mystery of the Gate

I walked further and further, out of the ghastly dungeon and suddenly, I saw a door. The door was so exquisite and immense. I then saw a miniature key designed beautifully. I opened the door, afraid to unleash a terrible, obnoxious monster. Although, when I saw the sunlight, picking up my eyes, I yearned to reach it and relax under it. The sun is like the bright glow of a candle. I turned the key. Faster and faster I gained my speed, unable to control myself. When I opened the door I saw stunned. I saw gigantic iron robots wondering around. Just then. I saw the walls were caving in on me so I went in. I Looked around no-one was there. This was a mystery I couldn’t solve. Now and then we all have dreams, but this wasn’t one. That’s all I know….

One day I was making my way to the park, but for some reason it looked creepier than usual. The sides of the wall were caving in on me. I was in a lonely gloomy park. As I went to investigate, lightning struck. A man appeared out of nowhere. He ran towards me. I really freaked out. I didn’t know what to do. He growled at me as I walked towards him. He got closer and closer till he ran right through me. I had a slight shiver and I found out he was no ordinary person, but a GHOST!

Also, we had some superb story starts from grown ups!

She tucked her eyes in under her brow, she’d anticipated this moment somehow, as darkness fell across the land, She knew she had to make a stand, the time was now, so bold, so true, she had to go forth and make anew, her head was down and on she went, her determination would not relent.
She walked for days until she reached the gate and through the bars she saw her fate.
The jury certainly was not out, she knew without any reasonable doubt, through the opening she fearlessly went, only she knew what this meant…..

‘How long’s it been … nineteen, twenty years?’

He studied the gate with seeming indifference.

‘Nineteen, just after I …’ He put a hand to the iron and shivered. It was cold, colder than the day. ‘No!’ he said, shaking his head. ‘It’s the past, gone, forg… ‘

A sharp cry from a raven, invisible in the trees, cut him short. He gripped the iron harder, until the heat from his growing fury began to warm it.

‘No,’ he said. ‘I can’t just drop it, just put it aside. This house and land should have been mine, until my … ‘

He hesitated, beset by memories of a brutal, drunken father who’d gambled away the family estates and fortune, leaving him and his mother penniless. She died not long after they left the family home. Tears came. He steadied himself on the iron of the gate then straightened up.

‘I have a plan,’ he said. ‘I’ll get this back. You wait and see.’ Still invisible, the raven called again, softer, almost as if in agreement. He remembered playing with the ravens as a child, feeding them, giving them gifts. He loved them.

‘Thanks, black bird, for reminding me of who I am.’ He paused, turning to go. ‘I’ll be back,’ he said over his shoulder then strode away.
