Secret of the Basement

This is just a short little something that I submitted to a contest. The requirements was that this is a horror story that takes place in a school. The characters in the story must be cute. It must also be less than 200 words.

“Brendan! Wait up!” A girl shouted as she ran towards him.

“There is no waiting in adventures. Now stop clinging to me.”

They are currently heading towards the basement of their school. According to rumors, if you are in school late at night, and you go towards the basement, you would not come back alive. Many students have tried this and, surely, there was a decrease in the student body.

“You were the one that wanted to come, Rachael.”


They reached the door to the stairwell and began their decent. Brendan’s flashlight could only light up so far ahead. When they reached the bottom of the stairs, a shadow flew across the light.

“W-w-what was that?”

As they raised the light, they saw a skeleton, with pieces of flesh stuck on it, wearing the student uniform. On the floor were many other corpses.

“Come on, let’s get out of here,” said Brendan, dragging Rachael with him.

Before they can reach the stairs again, a woman with long, disarranged hair and blood across her whole face came towards them with a knife in her hands.

They never saw tomorrow, but were added to the woman’s collection of student bodies.

The End
