Let´s cherish the pre-Halloween spirit.

I am delighted to publish here the imaginative stories that some of my students have sent to 50-Word Fright, Daily Lit. 

  • I still could’t sleep. Everything reminded me of that night, which I almost died. I remember going to bed when I saw her. She was there holding a gun pointed at me. She shot me. She was the woman who believed she was the wife of my boyfriend. She was crazy. (Beatriz, 2º E)
  • A bird is in my window, is a black bird. It is looking at me,. Are you hungry? wait, i don't see you very well, ¿Did you have a ball in your mouth? wait, there is blood in your beak...... Don't go!, i can't see you, where.... are my eyes... (Christian, 2º E)
  • He was surfing the internet. But someday He found a photo of a man with a weird disease called elephantiasis. He stared at the screen for a while. The man was a monster, totally deformed. Now he's going mad. He imagines the monster on his dreams and he sees everybody like if they had elephantiasis. Don't surf the internet. (Elvia, 2ºD)
  • Hall light has turned on and nobody was there. There are a lot of electrical failures . Tomorrow I’m going to call a technician to inspect the installation. When I come back to reality, memories come to me: the strange presence that lives in this house are still here.I’m afraid. (Cristina, 1ºE)
  • I created a monster, because nobody wants to see me nomore, they want someone more perfect, less human. So I gave them what they asked me. I lost my mind and at first moment everybody love my new ego but now they are all dead. They made a wrong choice. (Igor,2ºD)

  • He always quipped about what he dreamed. A mirror, a blurred image of a person who seemed not to have eyes(...) It reminded him of someone.
