The Haunted House It was a hot, sticky July evening and the day that John moved into what was said to be a old haunted house. It all started one night when he was watching TV and he heard something. It seemed as if the noise was coming from the basement down the hall. John wasn't worried. He picked up a maglite from off of the kitchen counter and walked toward the basement door. He opened the door slowly hoping that the noise he heard was a heater vent and not a ghost. He didn't see much so he figured that it was in his best interest to look around and find out if the house was actually haunted and that it wasn't his friends messing with him.A light flashed...then suddenly every thing disappeared. John was freaking out, he didn't know what to do so he went to his friend Joe's house. He explained to Joe that his house was haunted yet Joe didn't believe him."Come over then!" John said "NO!" exclaimed Joe "Why?" John asked "Because you said it was haunted!" Joe replied "Wait….I thought you said you didn't believe me?!" John inquired "Well, I changed my mind, said Joe, Hey, where is my mom?" The two boys looked all over and still they couldn't find Joe's Mom. They were beginning to get worried when they discovered a hole in the wall. Joe looked inside and screamed in horror because what he saw was a ghost and it was eating his mom! As much as they wanted to save Joe's mother from becoming an hourdouirve, there wasn't much that they were going to do about it but run.So they ran outside and confronted another ghost in a tree and then they looked over and saw a vampire sitting on top of an old beat up Ford. The two boys ran as fast as they could. As they were running Joe discovered that there was a police officer patroling the neighboring subdivision so they yelled over to him but they couldn't get his attention."HELP!!!!!" screamed John."MR. POLICE MAN…..HELP!!!!" bellowed Joe.Finally the squad car turned down their road and was heading straight for the two boys. They were expecting to see a police officer driving the car but to their surprise it wasn't a police officer, it was another ghost driving the squad car. Joe ripped the door of the car open and kicked the ghost in the forehead knocking him out the passenger side window."GET IN!!" screamed Joe."Do you know what you are doing, neither of us have our license and…" John said."Get in or stay here with a half unconcious ghost, what's your decision?" asked Joe.John slowly made his way into the squad car, wondering if he was about to do the right thing or not. He slammed the door behind him and looked at Joe with a cautious face."You know what you're doing, right?" John questioned."Of course I do." Remarked Joe.Joe put the car in drive and started to hit the gas but they weren't moving."I thought you knew what you were doing." said John."I do, we must be caught on something." said Joe."Get out and see what the problem is." Joe said."No, you get out and check, you're the one in the...
