A short story compiled by Michaela Reid – TFS Student
With the wind howling, she could hear the raindrops hitting the window continuously and with a fearful force. She threw the covers over her head fast, as if a form of protection. A mere flashback to her younger fears made her feel idiotic and childish. Yet, the covers remained over her face and darkness was her vision at present. Minutes felt like hours as she listened nervously to the never ending storm and the (what seemed) endless night. The duvet clung close to her body as if it was part of her. The only visible sign of existence beneath the bundle of sheets was her ponytail. She gasped with fear as a large bang hit the windowpane, which made her jump. The branches of the weather-beaten tree, which was located outside her window, rattled the pane and along with the moonlight cast shadows on her bedroom wall. As she peeked from her covers, she could see the shadows that looked like long witch-like fingers. She quivered with terror but remained fully aware of her surroundings. Her eyes kept focused on her wall as her ears listened sharply to the howls of the night. Although she kept telling herself it was just a storm, but in the back of her mind this was not just any storm. This was due to the fact that this night was indeed the night of Halloween. Her most dreaded occasion of the year. She closed her eyes tightly hoping for the night to pass and for her dreams to take her to a more pleasant and peaceful place. She was so lost in the night, before long it was day. She opened her eyes and found that she became both surprised and relieved that the sunlight was beginning to become visible. The storm began to calm and the birds began to sing a cheerful tune. With that she also began to feel cheerful. Throwing back her covers and lying spread out on her bed, she thought to herself with confidence, ‘I wasn’t scared at all.’
