The Twilight Zone – Ideas Generated – A Short Fiction Assignment
While viewing an episode of the Twilight Zone, you were asked to take down a list of thoughts, questions, ideas, drawings, anything that occured to you, etc.
You were asked to then pick seven of those ideas. They should have been favorites from the list, the “coolest” items on the list, etc.
With those seven items you were to write a short fiction piece.
This thread is dedicated to the fine works you’ve created.
And let me just say, thank you for sharing!!
TRICK OR TROUBLE
It was a dark night. Billy and Chrissy where home all alone for their parents had gone to a dinner party with a few co-workers. Billy was 14 and chrissy was 12 so of corse Billy thought that he was in charge of chrissy. Chrissy didn’t like that idea one bit. They were sitting on the couch in the living room watching some Tv. They flip the channel to notice that there is a marathon of the 100 best scarey movies. Billy is anxious to watch it but chrissy refuses. But since it was a pretty scarey night and chrissy didnt want to be alone she decided to stay with billy and watch the movie. After an hour or so Chrissy was hiding under a blanket frightend out of her skin. Then Billy announced that he had to use the bathroom. Chrissy didn’t like that idea so much because she would be alone but she didn’t want to go with hime (for obvious reasons) so she had no choice. After a while Chrissy got worried because Billy had been in there an awful long time. So she got up to go check if everything was all right. Nobody was in the bathroom. She headed towards his bedroom. Nobody was there. She checked the whole house but there was no sign of Billy. So she heads back to the living room and she sees someone sitting on the couch. She heads over there and yells, “Billy I have been looking all oveer this house for you!! Where were you?” But when she reached the couch….it wasn’t Billy sitting on it! She has never seen this kind of figure in her life. It looked like…it looked like the one that was in the film!!! She runs away but the strange figure countinues to chase her! She is scared out of her mind and is ready to go call 911. She went and hid under the dining room table where she sees headlights shine through the window. “Yes mom and dad are home!”,she said. “Billy,Chrissy we’re home,” they yell. Chrissy runs toward them and points to the tall dark figure. Her mom is frightend. But her Dad was bold and brave and yelled out ,”SHOW YOURSELF!” The figure took off the cloak and the mask.It was none other that Billy’s best friend Riley standing on Billy’s shoulders. Their parents where furious. They made a very detailed phone call to Riley’s parents and Billy got grounded for a month. But even worse, he had kitche duty,garbage duty and even toilet duty. While this was all happening Chrissy sat there and watched while eating a hot fudge sunday in his face.
Many stories here are about the atomic bomb….or similiar creations.
~Rachelle you story is very long but good.
One gloomy, stormy unusual spring day, I was rummaging through my grandma’s attic. “What is this?” I said puzzle as I stared at a piece of parchment rolled up in the back of an ancient dresser. It was very old with a tinted color of yellow from weathering. I unraveled the paper out of curiosity and saw a picture of a young black male in his 20’s or 30’s in African clothing. Underneath the portrait of the young man there was the birth and death date, 1807-1901. “Who is this old man from what I’m seeing he must have died in his 90’s.” I asked myself as I scanned the picture. As though trying to answer my question I noticed a name on the bottom corner of the paper. It read Abrafo. I looked dumbly at the name. “I never heard this name before in my live.” My stomach began to growl and I let out a slow, steady sigh. “I want some food, what for lunch today?” I went downstairs towards the kitchen. As I strolled into the kitchen I greeted my grandmother and asked for a freshly baked cookie. “I want a banana, grandma, do you have any?” I asked politely. “Yes, over there on the counter. So what you find up in my attic?” my grandma asked while placing the tray of cookies on the kitchen counter next to the fruit basket. I forgot about the parchment because of my extreme hunger situation. “Grandma, who is Abrafo?” “Ah. So that’s what you found up there, Abrafo is your great-great-great-great-grandfather who was a prince in Africa.” she said. “Seriously? So I have royal blood!” I said astonished. “That’s right. But he didn’t want to marry the princess of their enemy’s tribe. Yet, if he didn’t marry her then both tribes will declare war on each other. So he killed himself. Well that’s what everyone thought, but he faked his own death.” she said. She asked me if I wanted a ham or turkey sandwich. “Turkey good, “I said with a silly face, “but that guy is wrong-acting like he’s dead.” My grandma chuckled and continued. “If he didn’t, he would have been hung by the chef.” she said. “What? I’m so lost, why does that man want to hang him?” I questioned. “Because he would have insulted the other tribe by not marring their chef’s daughter.” my grandma left the kitchen and I heard a loud thud from the attic. My grandma came back with another piece of parchment. There was a picture of a pretty white girl with brown hair. “This is a picture of who Abrafo fell in love with. She’s your great-great… you know what I mean. They loved each other deeply but she lived in France and came to Africa for research of tribes. Her name was Aline Dauphin. She wanted to marry him so he faked his own death and snuck into France as a servant since their love was forbidden at that time. They secretly got married and since Abrafo didn’t have a last name, he took hers instead. Now you know some more information about our family.” “Yea. That’s really interesting, I ant believe I’m royalty!” I said proudly. She rolled her eyes and we both laughed.
The Birthday Present
Its was a hot Saturday evening in Sunrise Fl and Rebecca was having a birthday party; she could’nt wait. Rebecca especially was excited to open up her presents. One unusual guest at the party brang her a big round flat present and she opened that one last and it happened to be a mirror, a huge mirror with the words viva viva viva–live live live, engraved at the bottom. she wanted to see who had brought that gift but just saw an old woman run away in wierd clothing that seemed as if she belonged to a group of jipsies. When the party was over and she got home she was studying the mirror and noticed that when she looked in it, she looked much younger.. Rebecca is only fifteen year old and looking in the mirror made her look almost ten. she showed it to her mom but her mom saw no illusion and she found that very strange and mysterious. She happened to be the only one that could look in the mirror and see a younger version of herself. Rebecca promised herself to keep it forever. She knew that if she told her friends and everyone elses about it then they will think shes crazy. Every time she is out and about, the person who looked even close to that lady, she would go up to them and ask them about the mirror thay gave her but they never knew what she was talking about. She kept it with her until she was very old and everytime she would look in the mirror to see herself young and beautiful again. THE END

In the late summer of 1962 a new rise of power was about to unfold. Four friends that grew up with each other were about to witness something that would change their world forever. They all live in a small city in the country of Nerfum. It was about seven in the morning when their parents all ran into there bedrooms and told them to get up and out. One of the friend who was named Anthony was told to run into the cellar. While he was running he asked his mom what was happening. She said “I’ll tell you when we get to the cellar and are out of harms way.”So when they get to the hidden spot his mom tells him a new dictator has rose to power and is a serous airhead. Which she then tells him is someone with serious anger problems. In Alan’s house (who is the dictator)he is talking to his father who is a very old wise man. One of Alans soliders( who I might say is a complete idiot) brings in a old wooden mirror. The father tells his son the mirror tells you who your assain is. Alan doesn’t believe his dad. So one day he desides to look into the mirror and he see one of his soliders pointing a uzi at him. He turns around real quick and kills the solider.Then the demanding General gets nervous that his soliders are going to betray him. So back at anthony’s house his parents hear a knocking at the cellar door. They think it might be one of their friends so they push the heavy grass covered doors wide open. As the doors swing open they notice its not their friends but instead its soliders. They capture Anthony’s familiy. They bring him and his family to the generals house and present them to the general.The general looks at them and kills anthonys parents. Not knowing Anthony’s dad gave him a little .22 caliber handgun Alan raises the gunto anthony and anthony whips out the .22 and shoots Alan in the throat .

Mr. Moshe, I forgot…but… my story is very long and I couldn’t remember if you said if you’d let us turn it in tomorrow in class…
Legend of the Laconic Cave
The Legend of the Laconic Cave was told all around the world. It is said that there is a whole different dimension when you pass through it. Others claim that there is a peaceful paradise on the other side. Many people have tried looking for the cave, but they all failed. Rumor has it that the Laconic Cave only appears on May 1st at exactly midnight. Decades after decades, humans have attempted to find the secrets within the cave, but again they were unsuccessful. Now, the legend isn’t even a legend. People gave up and it was never talked about ever again. In the year 1974, Roy Mustang brought up the idea once more, but he kept it a secret. He was positive the Laconic Cave existed and was determined to find its secret. Studying the sky and the stars, he discovered something astounding. Every May 1st, the stars were arranged the same way as the previous year. This was the key in uncovering the truth about the cave. Each year at exactly 12am, Roy recorded the coordinates of each star. Assuming that these coordinates were exact spots on the Earth, Mustang set out on a journey. After several years, the Laconic Cave was found. It was located on a deserted island. As midnight was approaching the stars swirled down in an eddy, creating the Laconic Cave. Glittering with beauty, the cave appeared in front of Roy. At once, he entered through it. There was nothing but pitch darkness. Moments later, the sound of gun shots, exploding bombs, and shattering glass filled Roy’s ears. Instinctively, he ducked down. It seemed like reality, but it wasn’t. Fires were burning in the distance and planes were dropping bombs. Was this corrupted world just an imagination of his or was this the future? All of a sudden, the image disappeared and he was back on the island. Mustang wondered if he should tell anyone or not. Does the Laconic Cave show what’s on your mind? Is it presenting the future? Or maybe it was just a random image. No one knows. That is the Legend of the Laconic Cave.
it was a fun day at orlando for sam. he was on his way to his favorite ride, the tower of terror! him and his father had decided to skip all the other rides to get there first and to try to beat the lines. on the way, there was a cariage being pulled by a horse in the middle of the park. They wondered why anyone would use a horse while they could use something like a golf cart. but it didnt really matter. once they got to the tower of terror they saw that it was closed for maintenence. as they headed for other rides they saw a sidewalk that jutted off to the side. sam suggested they follow it. his fater was reluctant at first but decided to go anyway. once they reached the end they saw a tunnel and a sign that said “the rock resturant”. they were hungry and chose to go inside and eat. once they got in, a solid steel door shut behind them and an old man appeared out of nowhere. he said “your fate is sealed”, and vanished again. “that wasnt a real person, it was a projection” said sam’s father. sam was incredibly scared and began pounding on the door as hard as he could, but it didnt budge. sam wasnt convinced that the man was a projection and thought it was a wizard who was trying to kill them. the more he thought about it the more frightened he got. his father suggested that they go down farther to look for an exit. as they were going a trap door opened up beneath sam’s feet and he fell for about 2 stories onto a net. he noticed that his father didn’t come down with him. so he waited, and waited, and waited. but his father never came. sam made himself get up and go to the next room. as he opened the door he saw a computer. it was beeping and had lights flashing all over it. then it made a noise like a voice. “sam, you will not escape”. sam took up a rock and started to destroy the machine. as the machine lay broken sam saw another steel door open to the outside. he started to run toward it, but once he got to it, it closed. the old man appeared again from nowhere. and said “you should’ve known better boy”. and no one ever saw sam or his father again
As my friends and I walked around MGM Studios Theme Park, I realized that we had an hour before we had to head back to the busses. The only ride left that we hadn’t gone on was The Tower of Terror because we wanted to save that for last. We finally made our way to the entrance of the ride where the display showed that the wait in line was twenty-five minutes. My friends and I decided that we would have enough time to go onto the ride before we had to leave. We paced quickly through the entrance, only to be stopped by a worker who told us that we needed to put our bags into a locker. After we did so, we knew we only had an hour to get back or else we would have to pay a $2.00 fee. Therefore, we rushed into line hoping the wait wouldn’t be too long. The line began in an old, decorated, cave-like room, where we made our way closer to the elevators. After forty-five minutes, we buckled our seat belts and waited to be shot up and down through the air. At first, they played a video of The Twilight Zone, including the scary music introduction with the flying door and everything. I sat there nervously awaiting the drops just as it shot me into the air and went free falling downward. After the ride ended, my friends and I sprinted to the lockers to try to get our bags out in time to get to the busses. Except there was only one problem, Suzy forgot which finger she used to open the locker. As a result, we stood there for fifteen minutes trying to figure out which finger she used, when finally she realized it was her left thumb that she had programmed. As soon as we grabbed our bags, we fled to the busses. We arrived to our bus to find that we were the last ones to get aboard, but luckily they didn’t leave without us.
~*~Science with Kalvaitis~*~
One day as Regina & Katrina walked into to Science on the first day of school to find a wacko science teacher sniffing chocolate. ”Is this guy on crack?” Regina yelled out to the class. Hahahahahaha. The class scandalously laughed at Regina’s rude comment. The teacher answered back, “I am not on crack. Are you?” “Oh no he didn’t” shouted back Regina, “I know this man ain’t tryna crack!” Once again the class resorted into laughter. Then the teacher started to introduce himself. His name was Mr. Kalvaitis. Every day Regina & Katrina would get a kick out of messing with Mr. Kalvaitis. Nobody ever felt like they wanted to go to sleep. Then this guy, who is even crazier than Katrina & Regina, named Jabari, jumped into the game. After about two weeks, a girl named Anesah got so feed up with the 3 jokesters that she announced to the class, “I am sick & tired of you guys giving Mr. Kalvaitis such a hard time. All he does is try to teach and then gets interrupted by those three idiots……” “Who you callin a idiot Ms. Anesah?” interrupted Katrina. “You and your two sidekicks.” Shot back Anesah. “You must not know bout me you must not no bout me.” sang Katrina. “QUIET” yelled Mr. Kalvaitis. “The three of you girls go to the office right now” he demanded. “Hahaha, you funny I ain’t goin to that office again. Ms. Berris and I don’t get along. Besides, it’s that girl’s fault anyway.” stated Regina. Then Mr. Kalvaitis said, “Don’t make me call security.” “Call security I don’t care. Mater a fact call Mr. Brown.” “ Come on Regina lets just go. We already can’t stand this class.” persuaded Katrina. At the office the girls all got one day LBC for disrupting the class. From this day on Regina & Katrina promised to leave weird teachers alone.
Mr. Moshe, my post/story/comment, is awaiting moderation.
There were once two best friends. Their names were Nick and Ben. Their friendship went back to when they were in preschool. Later on in high school, they came upon other friends with which they hanged out. Even everyone at school knew how close they were. All of them went on trips all the time. During one of those trips, Ben had stumbled on an old lady and had helped her with a small chore that she was doing. After Ben finished helping her, she gave him a small mirror as a thank you gift. When he took it the old lady told him that he could use it to see the person that would kill him. Not knowing what she meant, he took it and put the small mirror in one of his pockets. He didn’t tell anyone of what had occurred since people might think that he was making this up. Back at school it just so happened that both Ben and Nick started to like the same girl. Then one day Ben took her to meet his friends, so he could tell them that now she was going to be his girlfriend. All of them were happy for him except his best friend, Nick. Both of them had come to a point in which they could have competed fiercely to see who was going to get her. Yet there she was with Ben. Afterward, Nick didn’t talk as much to Ben anymore from his jealousy towards him. Suddenly he started to have certain thoughts, evil thoughts, of what he should do to Ben. His jealousy had caused him to want to hate Ben more and more each passing day. Ben had definitely noticed that something was happening to Nick. He tried to talk to him, but Nick was too angry at him. Then one day, just out of curiosity, Ben took out the mirror that the old lady had given him back a while ago. Just as he kept staring into it, his own reflection started to disappear, and in its place was Nick with a face of anger that Ben never knew. Thinking of what he should do, the only thing that came to his mind was to get rid of him. He asked himself how he would do it ad he came up with a simple plan. When they were to have lunch Ben would quickly put some acid in Nick’s drink so that Nick would have to go to the hospital and stay there. He quickly put his plan to work the next day. When they were at lunch, Ben grabbed the small bottle of acid that he took from his chemistry class, and pour it into Nick’s drink while Nick was in the bathroom. To Ben’s surprise, his little plan worked. Nick had been able to drink enough liquid to cause serious problems in his stomach. After being a couple of days in the hospital, something happened that Ben had not meant to happen, Nick passed away from the contamination of his digestive system. Everyone at school thought that something in the food had caused it, but somehow somewhere, an anonymous person spread the rumor that Ben had something to do with it. Of course no one told him, except his friends started to be farther away from him after a while. Being curious yet again, Ben took out the mirror at home and saw all of his friends’ faces in it. No longer did he feel safe at school or at home. Some times he even slept in his closest to feel safe. His thoughts started to slowly make him more afraid and even crazier over the next days. No one saw him again, only that his friends had gotten sick of a similar contamination than the one that Nick had gotten. Everyone grew suspicious of Ben, but he was nowhere to be found. The only thing that was known of him was that he left his house and was seen near one of the cliffs nearby. Only an old woman showed up and said that he couldn’t be seen again. She also said that he wasn’t himself when he was at the cliff and that he did something only crazy people that went there did. And all this she said with a smirk on her face.
Once upon a time, there was an old man named Jack. He was a psychic old man who loved to play jokes on people because he would know what would happen next. Sometimes when he was serious, people would ask him about their future, and later, they would find out what he predicted was right. When he was asked how he knew all of these things, he would respond “Do not question the higher authority.”
As life was becoming better and better, something went wrong. He saw a horrible future in stored for himself and hoped to change it. He bought a lottery ticket and, as expected, he won. He claimed his money and then packed up all of his belongings and headed for the airport. Jack got on the plane easily, because he had little things that needed to be checked, and then took off. The plane ride went smoothly and flew all the way to Switzerland. From there, he went to the Swiss Bank, and deposited all of his money into a newly opened Swiss Bank Account. Afterwards, he dissappeared.
For ten years, the psyschic old man has lived alone, in fear of the *horrible event* that even words cannot describe. His money is still saved up in the bank account, collecting dust, and only he can open it (because he does not have a wife or children). In the end, as we can all imagine, he died. Not from some horrible death as he saw it, but from old age.
It was a normal day school, but when I got home. When I got home from the bus stop I saw a strange car with four men dressed in army gear, that I’ve never saw before in my building. As I was chatting online I heard a knock on the door, I went to answer it and it was my friends Anthony, Joseph, Arturo, and Janah and they want to go outside. When Janah tells the group that she was moving to a farm that her Grandma owns. We all were silent because we were going to lose one of our friends; it was all dead silent until Dalenny came. She didn’t know that sad news so I was the person that had to tell her. As I was telling her the news she almost broke down into tears because we didn’t know if we were going to see our friend again. Janah got a call from her mom telling her that she had to go pack right away. As she left Dalenny, and I started to look back at the good times we had with our 6th grade buddy. One funny time when she told a joke and ten minutes later she started laughing, we all stated to laugh at the dumb thing she would do for a good laugh. When she finished packing she came back down stairs and saw that we were all laughing and she asked “Why are you guys laughing?” “Aren’t you guys going to miss me?” We all laugh once again and told her what we were going and she herself started to laugh. When the time came to say our good-byes we all were in tears even the boys, we were all losing a good friend. As soon as we finished her mom came down and walked up to the strange car. I asked Janah if she knew the people in the car and she tells me that they were her uncle that were going to take them to the farm they were going to live, All this time I thought that they were “bad people” that were going to do something wrong to us when it turns out to be Janah’s family.
She lunged at her attacker with her knife, but she was too slow. He knocked it out of her hand easily and held his dagger to her neck in a swift movement.
“Weak,he hissed.”Then again,what did I expect? After all,you are your father’s daughter.”
“Don’t you dare talk about my father,”she snapped, eyes gleaming with fury. “Especially after you killed him!”
“Don’t blame me.Who knew he’d stay in a building I threatened to blow up?”
“Because blowing up buildings is totally innocent.”She struggled for her knife, but he saw her attempt and kicked it away.
“And how exactly is your revenge coming along,Ene? You swore to kill me, remember?”
“I did,and I will.”
Kalvin smiled.”It’s not my fault your father died.I walked into your village with no intention of any harm within me. I asked for the necklace. And what does your father do?He grabs it and goes into hiding. Coward,right? I thought so too.Anyhow,I ask the villagers where he is.They don’t tell me,so I kill them.” He shrugged.”Don’t want to risk them thwarting my escape later on. So when I finally find out which builidng he’s in, I knock on the door, just like a gentleman, and demand the necklace. As polite as I am though, he refuses to budge.So I threaten to blow the building up….he still refuses to move.Kaboom! His body’s in a million pieces.Thank god the necklace is indestructible.”
The war that had lasted three decades had robbed the land of any prosperity it once knew,leaving the people gaunt and starving as well……even over a hundred years later.
Villages had been established and all, but they weren’t even close to thriving.They were merely oases in a burnt wasteland.
And her family heirloom, an enchanted locket, had been stolen from her family five years ago,when she was a party of people combing the wastelands for any post-war artifacts.Stolen.Stolen by the creep who could take her life by moving a hair’s breadth.
After the war,everything had…..changed. The world had become a frightening and foreign place.And her father had said the necklace was enchanted……did such things even exist?
If they hadn’t before, the genocide of human beings had shattered the line between fantasy and reality.Now…now she didn’t know what was real.
“You filthy thief,”she spat.”Greed really has gotten the best of you,hasn’t it?”
“To me it isn’t greed,Ene.To me it’s called survival skills.Which is why I’m here while your father is scattered across the land by the wind.”
She could see the necklace around his neck and she longed to grab it and throw it into the ravine nearby.
“What does that acursed thing do, anyways?What is so important about it that my father had to die for it?”
“It’s everything,Ene.Everything but nothing.It has life among a world of living dead.It clings to life like glue.And if I cling to it..I too cling to life.”
“So you killed him to live.You killed my father so you could live your twisted life!”
He shrugged.”You could call it that if you want. But being given the chance to live…..you would do anything for it too, if you were in this situation.”
“It lets you live so you can kill more people?”
“I don’t kill because I want to,Ene.I kill because I have to.And I don’t want to have to kill you.”
In a final act of desperation, she moved her hands to his neck and ripped the tear shaped locket from it, stuffing it in her mouth and painfully swallowing it. Before he had a chance to do anything besides look at her with a shocked expression, she threw herself into the ravine.She smiled as her body plummeted into the depths,and died happy knowing that Kalvin,or anyone else, would never have possesion of the necklace again.
My story begins in current day America, a county of power-hungry politicians that seek nothing but to rule the world. As such a reality it was not long before one particular citizen attempted to overthrow the president and take it for him-self. After assassinating the current president he released the nuclear warheads and decimated much of the earth. Because of this event many plants became poisoned along with many people. The government (that remained) apprehended and killed the communist driven, self appointed dictator and after that they attempted to find the survivors and restart life. The government that remained consisted mostly of marines and various other solder types that began to take over many villages and take their food/supplies. They would kill people of all ages if they dared defy their “status” even children and old men. I can’t really think of much else to write about in the story other then this story could become true in a heart-beat and that communism is wrong so support our troops!
The allure of the fulgent, plaid aurora streamed over the buds of the slumbering mountains and into the glinting windowpanes of the statuesque manor of the modest King with a semblance of twilight’s aflame trance. As morn’s veil ascended into the heavens, the crisp autumn leaves begins a waltz along side the pliable ballad of the choral breeze. Outside the castle’s walls lies a sea of rippling blades, towers of rasping trees, the hymn of the soothing wind, and bristling hedges, which glisten as they struggle to wake up.
“Just like old times,” the shadow of a shaggy figure sighed as he knelt down on the frigid floor on my knee to peer out of the dwarf cranny in the featureless wall to grab a glimpse of the esplanade, “It’s amazing that it been only fours ye– Eh?”
“Get up,” barked the hefty commander as he abruptly barge in, flinging the bulky lead door aside, sending some of its screws flying. He sauntered towards the wobbly boy as the quaking boards beneath his muddy boots was about to give out with his thunderous steps smashing on them. “Stop your simpering and get back to work,” he ordered as he marred the crouching boy until his blood oozed down as rivers from his gashes.
“W-What tempts y-you and your f-fellow a-associates to –,” jeered the boy as he spatted blood — each clot reflected Death.
“Boys, lets cater to his highness’s every whim,” jested the commander as a handful of soldiers snickered in the corner. “Now bow down in awe of his kingdom of Nothingness!”
“Y-you,” the boy sneered, straining to get back up on his knees, “You were a trusted knight of the true King!”
“That’s right, kid. I was a trusted knight of that fool of a king. That’s all in the past. Get him.” The soldiers jolted at him, each thrusting bone crunching blows on the quivering boy until the commander cracked his whip.
“W-Why have you–,“ whispered the boy as he crashed into the sea of blood, numbed from the head down.
“Ralarith, the new and rightful King, promised me power beyond my comprehension, something your fool of a king never did,” the commander voiced. “Boys, we’re finished here.” Each of the docile soldiers kicked the boy one more time before they left. The corridor was filled to the brink with their nefarious laughter.
“Brother,” the tearing boy sighed,” How could you?”
BOOM! BOOM! atomic bombs blasted. Disinigrating city’s. Radioactive dust blasting the nostrils of the residents suffocating them day by day. Endless torture for the world. Im just Kidding, But there was one place, one city with just 50 residents with a hope of only one skinny old naked rat eating guy that lives in a cave. People says he knows everything and that you should always listen to him even if it sounds stupid. Radioactive food he says, People dont eat it, Dont plant your seeds there so they dont. But one day there was a group of army people that came searching and criticizing the people and telling them that this skinny old naked rat eating guy that lives in a cave is a lie. So he tells the skinny old naked rat eating guy that lives in a cave believing people to eat. They doubt them at first and go to the skinny old naked rat eating guy that lives in a cave to give them an answer. So they go and they dont get any response from the man. We are sure that there isint any skinny old naked rat eating guy that lives in a cave. So they partied all night eating and drinking the contaminated food and beverages. So they eat them and DIE… TO bad… so they pyco went and stole the jeep and went to get a mocachino with the skinny old naked rat eating guy that lives in a cave at starbucks and lived in greenland and moved to africa to the equator.
THE CURSE OF THE COUCH POTATOE
Our story begins on couch in New york, but not just any old couch. This brown, lumpy, old couch had candy rappers hidden between the cushions, and crumbs stuck in its fiber, and stains from soda cans that coincidentally fell over. But before I can tell you this story I must describe the boy who everyday comes home from school and goes directly to this couch, his name is Nelson. Nelson goes to midlle school ,he is about 14 years old. Neslon is not very tall, nor very short. He is not very athletic, nor very nerdy. He is simply a couch potatoe. One rainy night, Nelson found himself ,yet again, lounging on his couch. With nothing else to do, he idly grasps the remote and begins his usual voyage of channel surfing.
The storms outside had never bothered Nelson before, but thi years rainy season was more violent than ever. In the middle of a 4 hour marathon of “M*A*S*H*: The World Ends Early” the satalite began to lose its signal. By now Nelson had synced into this special television program and couldnt bear to live without the knowledge of the televsion progam’s ending. So what does Nelson Do? Why he picks up his TV guide, and starts smacking the pooh out of his television of course. Then without warning ligthing strikes the satelite located outsdie his apartemtn window. The electricity travels straight throught the cord to the TV. And at the exact time the ligthing trikes the TV, Nelson brings hand holding the TV guide) down on its sruface. And then a bright flash blinded Nelson and he suddenly found himself straddled on the floor with the TV guide in hand. But he wasnt on the floor, he wasnt even indoors. He seemed to be sprawled out on dirt, and he felt the hot sun burning his skin. In haste he opened his eyes to find himself in a military base. All around him there were soldiers running to and fro, like ants. then a helicopter landed and pulled out a wounded man. As he looked to the right he saw white blocks floating towards him. Quickly he stood up and scrutinised them..but they werent block, they were letters! Nelson squinted his eyes, and read “M*A*S*H*”. Nelson eyes opened wide and his almost dropped to the floor. He was in is TV!
Filled with fear he ran like a mad man. And when he stopped he found himself in a dank dark cave, and the distance and eerie voice calling out”My precious, my precious” was heard. Although he couldnt quite pinpoint it, the voice sounded familiar. Without giving the vioce any further thuoght, Nelson sat down on a nearby rock and analyzed his situation. Then from the shadows, a dark creature came. And with horror filled eyes, Nelson recognized the creature as Golumn! Nelson had seen the Lord of the Rings and new what was coming next. Golumn lunged for him, but with effort Nelson managed to escape. Again Nelson found himself running, as fast he could. Then he realized he had the TV guide in his hands. With quivering hands, Nelson opened the book and searched for Lord of the Rings. “Ahh! Lord of the Rings” , he exclaimed. He was located on Channel 32. He read further down to wear he saw the title “Back to the Future”. Then the idea hit him, he could time travel back to the time before the ligthing struck into his apartment! But the problem was “Back to the Future” was located on Chanell 37, Nelson would have to go through Pirates of the Caribbean, Albert Einstiens Docuementary, the Time Machine, and The Hangmans Rope. Who knows what Nelson could encounter before he reached channel 37? His life is at stake!
Meanwhile back in the city, the ligthing strikes had caused a power shortage. Suddenly in the midst of Nelsons thought, a black fog was beggining to veil his surroundings, and soon he would be no more……his TV has been turned off.

Sorry this may be more than 250 word, and in some ways my stroy may be simliar to the old man in the cave.
As you look arround at the image before you, you see the rotten carcuses or what was once a small retirement town in kanas.
This was a town were you would see old men gambling, drinking, and soicalizing at every corner. Old women knitting and gardening at the next. In the summer when the grand children where of from school you would her the echo of laughter ooz through the streets. that is all gone, all you hear now is the echos of your own breath. The sight before you may turn your stomach, but when you hear why they all dropped dead you will laugh out loud. I’m the only survior, and i bearly survied.
My story you could say is almost biblical. All was usall in our small town, all was plenty full and nothing was denied. Then one quiet coool summer day, i got a vision. I got a viison that that all the people in town would fall dead. Well falling dead was expected considering how old they all were.
All at once on the other hand, was a different story. Stupid, unintelligient, kiind hearted me went and told the town. I was petrified by their response. I had shared visions with the town before, But this on terrifed the people. In discus they captured me out of bed in the darkest hour of the night. There they brutally attacked me, they whipped me and battered me all black and blue. They then tied me up and caried me deep into the woods and imprisoned me in a cave. There they left me to suffer a long and lonley death.
“IT was because, i’m young.”
For 100 days and 99 nights i stayed there, some how surving. On the 100th day i felt the sunsihne on my face, the cave door automatically opened. I was mad and enraged and ran into town with revenge in my heart. There i found ever one dead. Stone cold dead. Nolonger could they mock me and pretend to play deadas i passed, Nolonger could i be contaminated with rage. They were already dead.
Men only want to belive what they can benefit them, and turn a blind eye to what dosen’t.
BEWARE THIS IS STORY FROM A MAN FACEING THE DEATH PENALTY FOR A MASSACURE ON HIS TOWN.
Aftermath part 1
In the poem fire and ice the world is said to end in fire or ice. Those who said the world would end in ice can now claim there victory. Today is the 1000 day anniversary of when the world became a frozen ball of ice. It was suppose to be a simple mission to the moon, no one would have that thought a comet would hit the shuttle making it crash land and explode on the moon causing the moon to hurl straight toward the earth not only killing millions but knocking earth of it’s axis so far away the suns rays could not penetrate the atmosphere giving us warmth, causing the world to drift into total oblivion. You must be thinking no sun no light your wrong to fix the problem the government made IWIS or international world light system. Machines now run the system every 5 miles a light bot are managing the light. Also a man is there where the robot stays to fix and repair it. Life is all but the same there’s only one thing that’s bugs me out of all the things every body is acting very noobish acting like today’s there last day bit the thing is we are alive aren’t we so we might as well live wit It. Where the man are who stay with the robots aren’t to be disturbed I lost my best friend one day he went to talk to the man and I never saw Logan again. So end this chapter of AFTER MATH but I will continue to tell you more at a later date.
After the bombs had been dropped, everything had changed drastically. Most civilization had been destroyed by the dirty bombs; shortly followed by E.M.P bombs that annihilated any last remains of technology. The few stragglers that survived were scattered and separated into several colonies each with different beliefs and ways to survive. Trust and faith were the only things holding these loose bonds of civil humanity together, but eventually in some places the bonds broke and calamity and chaos would wreak havoc. Besides the various attempts to unite the bands of people no one person ruled…until Richen tweaked technology to his advantage. With automobiles and weaponry on his side Richen tore the fragile bonds of faith and trust slowly apart with his promises of food and better lives. Little did he know without the proper actions people would rebel and release all hell unto his sought after empire. After announcing his leadership, people began plotting his downfall. Without the trust he or faith he couldn’t obtain from his so called followers his demise was inevitable, until he thought of his brilliant plan to throw to the skeleton-like rioters the stockpile of food that was believed to be contaminated. After seeing the cause of their hatred and anger eat the rumored poisoned food the tempers cooled and everyone feasted on the innards of the cans. With this type of commitment there was no turning back Richen knew this but it was the ultimate sign of trust. The ominous fact about trust is that it’s not so simple to obtain and much more of a simple task to lose, just like life. With each bite of that food every person scribbled their name away to death, signing the last contract they ever would in life.
There once was a boy named Chad. Chad was a young boy with messy brown hair. He was a lonely a boy, whose parents were always drunk. And to top it off, his dad was crazy. So crazy the man ended up in jail three times already! Yet, the mom keeps on taking him back (maybe she is the crazy one!).Anyway, Chad’s family and him had just moved to Coral Gables from Danville, California. One day, Chad wanted to explore his new house. Its pretty big. So he decided to start in the basement. When he was looking around, he came across a mirror that had fancy trims around the edges.When he looked into it, he saw something. But the thing is it wasn’t his reflection, it looked like a little weird creature that was very short. He couldn’t believe it. It must of been fake he thought to himself.He was curious about this new discovery, and tried to walk in the mirror. He thought there would be a second world in there. And to his surprise, he was able to walk in the mirror.But when he entered, he was falling and falling(I guess that hat happens when you enter another dimension). While this fall, it looked like he was traveling through this black and white target thing that kept on moving, just like how the twilight zone starts their show. Very creepy. but all of a sudden, it stopped, and Chad fell straight to the floor. The first thing he could here was this creepy music that was as loud as an angry elephant! Anyway, he saw that little creature he had encountered before at the mirror. Only there were about 500 of them doing some type of ritual.Chad tried to be very quiet so he wouldn’t disturb them. But he step on a branch by accident that made an enormous CRACK sound. The little people all stared at him at started to chase him! He was running and running, then he suddenly woke up!
“It was just a dream,” Chad said to himself in relief. but the next second he heard one of the little creatures laughs, and it came from the basement.

One hot summer day my family and I were on a road trip to Nevada. We were having fun listening to and singing music until we found out about this big accident. The road was blocked off and was going to be for several hours. We didn’t want to wait so we asked this old looking sheriff if there was any other road we could take to get us to where we wanted and also if there was a little store we could stop at because we were hungry. The old man told us there was one dirt road we could take and told us directions, but told us that we shouldn‘t eat any of the food here because it was contaminated.
We said ok and followed the directions he gave us and found the dirt road. We were driving for about forty-five minutes until we realized that the road led us to a town that was very old and looked haunted. We were a little curious to see what was going on in the town so we got out of the car and were walking around. There didn’t seem to be any people around, but it looked like there was a garage sale going on. There were a bunch of things just placed outside of houses. We thought it was strange, but didn’t really think about it too much.
I saw a little store and told my mom, dad, and sister to come look. They said we could look, but we weren’t going to eat anything because the man told us that the food was contaminated. There was a whole bunch of food that looked so tasty. I wanted to eat it so bad. We wondered where the people were that lived here and why the food was contaminated. We walked out the store and looked around for anyone we could find.
We found a house that seemed to have noise coming from it. We walked in and heard noises coming from the basement. We quietly went to the basement and opened the door. There were about five women and men tired up to chair and cloth around their mouths. We were kind of getting scared. We untied the cloth and asked them what happened. They told us that there was an accident and an old man told them about this dirt road. At this point we were freaking out. It’s exactly what happened to us.
We all left the house and were walking down the street to get to our car so we could leave. While we were walking the town people were complaining about how hungry they were just as we were walking past the store. One of them saw it and ran over and walked in. The rest followed along with us. We told them about what the man said and they didn’t care they started eating everything they could find. After that, we left the store and kept on walking. The town people were complaining about stomach aches. We told them they shouldn’t have eaten the food. They couldn’t walk anymore and finally, they ended up dead.
We got to where we left are car, but it wasn’t there. We didn’t know what to do so we decided to run down the dirt road. The way we came. We were all running until we saw the old man again. He was walking toward us. He stopped in front of us and asked us where we were going. We said were getting out of here. He replied saying “No you‘re not” and tackled my dad. I started screaming and kicking the old man. Finally the man didn’t have anymore strength to keep fighting and just lay there on the ground. My dad got up and said “lets go”. We started running again.
We finally got to the main road and stopped someone in a car and asked to use a phone. They let us and we called the police. The police got there in about fifteen minutes and we told them what happened. One of them took us to the police department and told us to wait here. The old man ended up being a known criminal and was arrested. In the end, we finally made it to Nevada and enjoyed our summer vacation.
Sorry if this doesn’t make too much sense but whatever.
Out of the darkness, walking through a pumpkin patch, was a person dressed in black and white pinstripes. His name, Jack Skellington.
As he walked through the patch, a shadow appeared in front of him.
“Oh, hello, Sally,” he said, looking up at her and smiled.
“Jack, we have a problem,” Sally said, rushing to him.
“What are you talking about, Sally?” Jack asked, taking a hold of her arm.
“It’s the doctor,” she told him, “He’s gone mad.”
(Cue music: dun, dun, dun, duuuuuun.)
Both Jack and Sally rushed back into town and ran to the doctor’s front door.
“Doctor! Doctor!” Jack yelled, banging on the door.
“Who is it?” a voice came from inside.
“It’s Jack and Sally, please let us in,” Jack pleaded.
“Of course, Jack, come on in,” the voice said, opening the door.
“Doctor, are you ok?” Sally asked, running over to him.
“I’m fine, Sally,” he said, “Why wouldn’t I be?
“Well, earlier you were setting your lab on fire,” she told him.
“Really? Well I don’t remember doing that,” the doctor told her, moving himself, in his wheelchair, over to the door so that he could look outside.
“Good heavens, what happened here?” he asked, staring at the outside in shock.
“What do you mean?” Jack asked, walking towards the door, “Oh, my.”
Outside, the town was ablaze. Things that had fallen to the ground were still burning and were trying to climb to closer to buildings.
“Who did all of this?” Sally asked, walking out onto the porch.
“My clone, most likely,” the doctor informed them, “It leaves whenever it feels like it and I guess it decided to burn down the town.”
“It’s really quiet,” Jack said, “Where is everyone?”
“They probably ran for it,” Sally suggested.
“Maybe,” the doctor agreed, “I wonder if my clone cam back.”
“Let’s go check,” Jack said, following the doctor up the ramp that led to his lab.
“No, he’s gone,” the doctor informed them.
“So, now what?” Sally asked.
“Well, I guess we’ll have to put the fire out somehow,” the doctor said.
“Then let’s get started,” Jack said, starting back down the ramp.
For the next few hours, Jack, Sally, and the doctor set out to put the fires out.
“And that’ll do it,” Jack said, throwing the last pail of well water on a blazing bush.
“Great, so tomorrow we’ll start to rebuild some of the buildings, right?” Sally said.
“Yep,” the doctor and Jack said.
So the next morning, they started to put all of the buildings back together.
Just before sunset, Sally nailed in the last board and pulled away to look at their work.
“Good job, everybody,” the doctor said, “Now I’m going to go destroy my clone so that nothing else like this can happen again.”
“Ok, see you later, doctor” Jack said, waving.
“Good night, Jack” the doctor replied, “Come on Sally, let’s go home.”
“Good night, Jack,” Sally said, following the doctor.
“ ‘Night,” Jack replied, going to his own home just as the last rays of the sun disappeared.
“This war that has been going on is terrible!“ screeched my Mother. The poor thing was always afraid that some soldiers would come and use our house for lodging. They steal what they want when they pass a town, and when the war is won, they get praise. Those cruel murderers!
“We know!” responded my brother. He never sees how afraid my poor mother is. All he cares is how much land we have to sell to be able to pay taxes. They just keep rising. “Those taxes better not rise anymore then they are. We’ll be selling all our land otherwise!”
A knock at the door startled us. “You, get it!”, shouted my mother. I rushed to the door and straightened myself up. I suddenly became pale, at the door to our house were soldiers!
“Get us food and water, and some medicine for him,” he pointed to his friend who seemed sick. When he noticed us just standing there he yelled “NOW!” We meekly followed his directions.
“Don’t be so rude!” said one of the soldiers. “They were just helping us, and it’s not they’re fault we are in this war. Blame the politicians”
“We don’t have much food since it was contaminated when you used the river to empty your poison, the fishes are mostly poisoned, and we don’t have many vegetables. See, we had to sell some of our land.” I warned them. It seems they were going to the river anyway to eat the fish.
Once upon a time there was a girl named Jen. She was greedy, mean, and downright evil to everyone around her. Several of her teachers told her many times that if she continued to act the way she did to others, then something terrible would happen to her later on in life, however she continually ignored them. One day she came home from school to find a new mirror in her room. She then immediately stormed out of her room and demanded her mother to tell her where she got the mirror from. Her mother replied “Oh that, I got it from an antique shop downtown. The clerk at the store said that it could teleport you into the future, but it was a crazy old man that said it, so his words don’t have any credibility to me.” Jen stormed back up to her room to do her homework. She took a look at the mirror and said to herself “This rickety piece of junk can teleport me into the future. Yeah right.” She walked up to the mirror to check her hair when suddenly she was sucked into a wormhole transporting her into the future. After being in that wormhole for a while, she landed outside a building that appeared to be a mental facility. She walked inside and after walking around for a while she found a room with the name Jen Harris on the door. She opened the door to realize that it was an older version of her lying on the bed mumbling something to herself. She then saw people who looked like her parents walk in the room. They started talking to the older version of her about her being mean to everyone in life and that she was now facing the consequences of her actions. After seeing what she had become she was immediately sucked back into her regular time. Turns out she was sleeping the whole time and she never really went into the future. From that time, she immediately changed her ways and was never mean to anyone ever again.
Today is our field trip to a cave to learn about bats and how they live. At 9:00am we were off to the cave. We arrived at a town that was rundown and trashed, up above in the mountains was the cave. We went to check in so we could see the bats, but there was only one guy in the whole town. I thought to myself, damn that’s weird.
So we checked in and were on our way to explore the cave. When we arrived at the entrance the guy gave us flashlights, matches, and helmets.
The strange part was he didn’t walk us around, he just let us go into the cave without him. As we walked around I noticed a strange odor in the air. We went to find the smell and when we turned the corner we stumbled across dead bodies all over the ground. Next to the bodies were cans and cans of food. Wow! I couldn’t believe my eyes, what the hell happened? We were like, let’s get out of here!
Then we heard a voice, so we followed the sound to see if that was the way out, but all we found was an old man in the corner of the cave. We asked what are you doing down here? He said, “some guy trapped me in here, I’ve been down here for over 5 years.” We all decided to help him and he said he would help us. Until we saw something move. “What was that?” someone asked. I said, “I don’t know and I don’t want to find out, just keep moving.”
We started to see light so we quickly sped up.
Then the noise came again and something jumped out at us, we darted as fast as we could to the exit and got out. Then I asked, “What was that?” The old
guy said, “those were cavelings, but don’t worry they hate the light, we are safe now.” We all ran back to the bus and left that creepy cave but we left the old man behind, at least that’s what we thought. We thought wrong, all of a sudden from the back of the bus out jumped the old guy. He went crazy and killed everyone in sight.
This is the story about how one man’s greatest creation will become the world’s worst nightmare in The Fourth Dimension. Robert Will has just created the ultimate weapon, the AstroArch. The AstroArch is not as destructive like the atomic bomb, the AstroArch allied with another can create a rift in space in other words create a portal to space which will suck up everything between the two AstroArches. This to Robert Will was going to be the greatest creation known to man, but he was sadly mistaken. Chaos was happening between many countries such as North Korea and South Korea, or as many people know China and the United States of America. Fear there is going to be a World War Three (WW3) the U.S. asked all the greatest minds in the country to come up with a deadly weapon against China. Hearing this Rob went to the meeting to show them his AstroArch idea. They were speech less when they saw the mini display and agreed to his invention and went to work. Authorized by the president the Navy Seals went to all the corners of China and planted the AstroArches. For years the sabotage was secret then came the day when China declared war on the U.S. Having heard this, the president sent a warning to China not to declared war on them or they will be destroyed. China said no so the president authorized the military to activate the AstroArches. They did and the arches did their jobs and destroyed China, but something happen that they didn’t expect. After the destruction of China the AstroArches clashed together and they reset themselves. After an hour they were online again and created another force field but since the faces of the arches was reversed due to the collision they created a force field around the entire plant in a desperate attempt to find each other. When they did they started to do their job to send anything between them into space and that meant sending that exist into space. Million by million all was being sucked into space, plants, animals, and the entire human race. All that ever was, all that ever is know not in earth, but in space and this is what happens in The Fourth Dimension.
