The Old House

Member Story

"I am not going in there!" said a 12-year-old boy named Ahmed.
"Are you chicken?" asked a 12-year-old boy named Ibrahim.
"No!" said Ahmed, shoving Ibrahim.
"Then go in there," said Ibrahim.
"Well, you go in there first," said Ahmed backing away from the old house.
"Come with me," asked Ibrahim who backed away from the house, too.
"No way!  People say it's haunted," said Ahmed.
"Come with me," insisted Ibrahim.
"How are you going to make me?" asked Ahmed, still looking at the house which gave him the creeps.
"I will give you $5 dollars," said Ibrahim, pulling a 5-dollar bill out of his pocket.
"$10?" asked Ahmed, still not so sure.
"Fine, I will give it to you after we come back," said Ibrahim, entering the house with a flashlight.
"This house is so dark," said Ahmed, breaking some cobwebs.
"Nobody lived here for ages," said Ibrahim.
"So what are we doing here?" asked Ahmed.  "Ibrahim?"
Ahmed looked for Ibrahim but couldn't find him. Suddenly he felt a tap on his back.
"Ahhhhhh!" yelled Ahmed before realizing Ibrahim tapped his back.
"You should have seen your face!" said Ibrahim laughing.
"You are going to regret that!" said Ahmed, jumping on Ibrahim.
"Get off me!" said Ibrahim, tackling Ahmed but suddenly felt something.
Ibrahim and Ahmed slowly got up and saw a man who looked like a sumo wrestler. The man grabbed Ibrahim and Ahmed and took them downstairs.
"What are you doing here!?" asked the man.
Ibrahim and Ahmed were too scared to answer.
"I said what are you doing here?!" asked the man .
"We thought nobody lived here," said Ahmed.
"Well even if I didn't live here, you're not supposed to go into random houses!" said the man.
"Well, thank you for this lesson, but I think we will be going now," said Ibrahim who started to run with Ahmed.
"Not so fast," said the man, grabbing Ibrahim and Ahmed and tying them up.
"What are you going to do with us?" asked Ibrahim.
"Tomorrow I am going to take you to a foreign land," the man laughed.
The man left and Ibrahim and Ahmed tried thinking of a way out.  Ahmed suddenly got the rope loose and broke a window.
"Let's get out of here!" yelled Ibrahim as they ran out and went home.
That night they were so scared they never passed that house again.
