Today I have a guest writer appearing on my blog. Amanda is a 10 year old budding writer from Washington. Enjoy!
The Story Teller
We all sat in a circle around the campfire. It was dark outside. The only light was coming from the stars overhead and the campfire. The fire blew smoke in our faces. My grandpa started to tell a really scary story. It was about a ghost town! I had to have my back to a tree because I was so fearful. Grandpa paused at the truly scary parts to make it even scarier than it was. He made his voice go with the story so much that he terrified himself. All his hair went up on his arm! When he heard a noise he turned his head like something was there. I wanted to scream because I was so petrified!
When we went to bed I still felt so afraid. I would have felt a little better if I was in a house, but I wasn't. I was in a non-protected tent, and that scared me even more. Grandpa is coming to my house soon, and I can't wait for another ghost story.
