"Have You Checked on the Children?"

Mr. and Mrs. Williams have been happily married for fifteen years

with two beautiful children named Ben, who is ten years old, and

Jennifer, who is eight years old.  After a long week of work Mr. and

Mrs. Williams decide to take a Friday night to themselves. The couple

left the kids home with their seventeen year old babysitter, Amanda.





Amanda was your average teenage girl, sweet and innocent

around adults but always looking for a good time when the opportunity

comes around.  Amanda called up her boyfriend Cody and told him to head

over after she put the kids to bed. As Amanda was preparing the kids

favorite chicken tender dinner she heard a loud clanking on the window

next to the front door. She went to check it out but saw nothing except

an empty walkway on a stormy night.

After dinner and an hour of cartoons Amanda took the kids up stairs

to tuck them in. Amanda returned downstairs and could not find her cell

phone anywhere, and then the house phone rang. There was a mysterious

silence when she first answered the phone and then she heard a dark

creepy voice say the words she will never forget, "have you checked on

the children?" Amanda played it off as just a prank call but little did

she know it was much more than that. The night storm carried on and the

thunder continued to roar. The power suddenly shut off throughout the

house. Amanda then was startled by a knock on the door.

Amanda was relieved to see that it was Cody at the front door. The

two sat in the living room when they heard loud barking coming from the

garage.  As they stepped into the garage they were mortified to see the

family dog lying in a pool of its own blood. Amanda and Cody rushed

inside and began to panic. As Cody stayed in the living room Amanda

rushed up stairs to check on Ben Jennifer. She told them to hide in

their parents' clothes chest until she came back. When Amanda returned

to the living room she saw Cody sitting still with a large knife lodged

into his head. She immediately took Cody's cell phone and called 911.

As soon as she got off the phone she saw a massive masked man standing

across the hallway. Amanda darted out the back door but didn't make it

far after the man threw a knife at the back of her leg.  The man pulled

the knife out of Amanda's leg and slowly slit her throat. The police

arrived shortly after only to find the bodies of Amanda and Cody, but

no trace of Ben and Jennifer.

There are a few grammatical errors, but it was an acceptable story for your first time.

Sounds like "When a Stranger Calls." If you wouldn't mind, can you post another? I would hate to be biased due to similarities

“You resemble death. quick, silent, terrifiying. yet beautiful, irresistible and forever.”

Sifor, I was thinking the same. But I don't want to be biased either.
