On Halloween it's said that the gates between our world and the world of the dead are open. Normally, I don't believe all that stuff but...hm.. .well....
My school was preparing for Halloween and I couldn't stop from feeling a bit weird, wondering all the time if the stories about the scary night were real or not. When I arrived home, with all those things trembling in my head, I noticed that we were living near the cemetery. It's true that, before, we were living in the same place, but just now I got really scared. What if, I mutter, some evil creatures come out and grab me? What if a ghost enters my room? What if a living dead man's head comes and...

By the time I went to sleep I was pretty anxious. So imagine how scared I got when I heard a door opening somewhere in the house, then I saw some lights going over the ceiling and I heard some knockings at my window . I rose out of bed, shouting. Mother told me that she had just closed the kitchen door, that a car was passing by and the headlights had shone in my window and that it has started to rain. I did not believe her. Would you?
