Hi, everyone! Man, the weeks are flying. So, this week’s entry was inspired by a dream I had – or one may call it a nightmare. But, I thought the basic concepts would be great categories for Create a Scene Tuesday.
Action – Experiencing a Supernatural or Paranormal Moment (Just for fun: check out a post by my agent, Bree Ogden, on the differences between Paranormal v.s. Supernatural)
My entry: Jessie walked through the doorway of an abandoned schoolhouse. A powerful, negative energy about the room made her nerves tingle. She ran her fingers across the dusty desks.
“Anne,” she called to the spirit. “Anne, I know you’re here. Can we please talk?”
The door suddenly slammed closed, making Jessie’s heart jump. A piece of chalk rose up to the blackboard. It began to scratch “HELP ME” in the top left corner.
Jessie stepped forward, “Help me?”
Another piece of chalk flew through the air, hitting Jessie in the shoulder.
Jessie bent down and picked up the chalk. She stared at it as she raised herself up. The desks around her began to shake. “HELP ME” continued to appear on the blackboard, over and over, as if it was a child’s punishment. Jessie covered her face as chalk flew at her at full speed. She raced for the door, trying to force it open. Something seemed to be pulling it closed on the other side. The desks crawled towards Jessie, locking her into a corner.
Jessie yanked the door open and raced outside. The energy she had felt earlier lifted from her shoulders. She turned and peeked into the schoolhouse to find everything back in its place. The board completely erased.
