Night, Figure n World :Part 1:I didn't know what it was at first as I heard footsteps coming towards my room after midnight. Was it my father trying to check on me whether I was sleeping? It couldn't be as he always did that before midnight. Was it a burglar trying to steal my hi-fi stereo system and television? Impossible is the best way to describe it. There weren't any ways that a burglar could come as the security system in out house was tight. Was it King Kong trying to take me away from my house? What was I thinking? My imagination was running wild. My spine went stiff as my legs went numb. I shivered as I heard those footsteps approaching closer and closer. I knew I must be brave. I marched towards the door and saw a figure.

Dark Words :Part 3:"Look nurse! She's coming around!"
I heard a voice. It was an old lady alerting the nurse that I was awake. I woke up all groggy. I heard footsteps approaching me. Everything was surreal. Did Lucas really disappear from existence? Was Natalie really dead? Was it all one crazy nightmare?
"My dear," as the nurse broke my chain of thoughts, "Are you feeling better? You just fainted across that corridor after what you heard from that doctor. I am sorry for your friend's death..."
It wasn't any dream or nightmare! It was reality. I pinched myself to make sure that I wasn't dreaming. I kept recalling the curses Shelly used on Natalie and Lucas. The thoughts of these words frightened me. I shivered when I thought of her bony index finger pointing at my direction. Was I next? What sort of attention was she trying to give?
My whole life changed gradually. My grades were slipping and I didn't eat as much as usual. I kept waking up during the wee hours of the morning from series of nightmares on
Dark Words :Part 2:I thought my brother had photo manipulated the photograph for his own pleasure. I wanted to confront him that morning but, I was late for school. When I entered classroom, I did not see Lucas. I figured he was sick. Worriedly, I called his home and his mother shouted:
"Just who are YOU? There is no such person in my house! Stop calling or I will call the police!"
It was shocking. Shelly's curse came true. That night, I tried to research ways to bring him back. There were no answers. I began to shiver. I decided to stay away from Shelly. I started to hang out with my other friend, Natalie all the time. At the same time, I didn't give up trying to bring Lucas back.
When I was with Natalie during one lunchtime, Shelly stormed over to our table. She was so jealous that her flare came out once again:
"What are YOU doing with Lisa?" to Natalie, "You have no right to hang out with her!"
"Oh yeah?" replied Natalie, "She isn't your teddy bear or something like that!"
"Really?" Shelly said in a
Dark Words :Part 1:The first year of high school was the scariest in my entire life. It wasn't homework deadlines or detentions that got in my way. I was able to complete my work in time (plus I was a top grade student!). I didn't get trashed by my high school seniors as they targetted the foreign students. My biggest challenge was my classmate, Shelly.
One fruitful morning, during homeroom, a new member of the class walked in as timid as a rabbit. I thought she was just a typical nerd (with the thick black-rimmed glasses and her out-shaped buck tooth). I was wrong. When she took off her glasses, her buck tooth seem to disappear into thin air. I figured that I did not have enough sleep the night before as I turned in late. At that spur of the moment, she looked exactly like Laura (my former classmate from the same year now pursuing an acting career overseas). The only difference was the frizzy hair which made it seem like it wasn't combed out since the Ice Age! All of the guys gasped in amazement. Even m
