Every year I arrange Halloween with my friends. This year wasn’t any different. As usual we planned going from house to house and asking for candies. Halloween has always been a special holiday, full of fun among my friends.
At about 7 p.m. we started trick-or-treating. People gave us candies and took pictures. We had already collected two big bags of sweets, when we got to the last house in the alley. It was a well-known ‘dark house’. Neighbors had been telling us various stories about it since we were little. Apparently at night you could hear screams coming from the house, although it has been abandoned for many years.
Someone suggested going inside. We walked into the rear garden and found out that the door was open. The only light we had was from the streetlights. Everything was covered by dust. In the middle there were stairs leading down. We headed towards them to see what was in the basement. We were going down slowly, step by step until we faced the door. Suddenly, on the other side someone started banging on it! We heard millions of whispers in strange languages. We started running away, screaming. We were confused. I’d never been so scared before! We called the police as soon as we could. They didn’t want to believe us, but they arrived. The house was searched through thoroughly, and as it turned out, it was completely empty. They didn’t find anything suspicious. We couldn’t believe it. The policemen thought we’d played a stupid joke. Soon everyone forgot about this event, but it will stay in my memories forever…

Blood and Roses by Malwina Szcześniak
Haunted House by Małgorzata Pieńkowska
It was my favourite day of the year – the 31st of October. On this day we celebrate Halloween. I invited my friends to my house. One of them came with her strange cousin. Her name was Selen. She was obsessed with ghosts and scary stories. When we sat in the circle in the candlelight, Selen, with madness in her eyes, started telling the story about Elizabeth Batory – a Hungarian princess.
That lady was very cruel to her servants. She used to beat them and she ordered them to do degrading things. When somebody opposed, Elizabeth burnt him alive. The princess believed in black magic. She thought that blood of innocent virgin could make her life longer and that thanks to it she would always be young and beautiful. Because of that, she tortured girls and bathed in their blood afterwards. Elizabeth used to cover rotting bodies with roses – her favourite flowers.
One day the folk rebelled. Someone sneaked into the Elizabeth’s room and stabbed her three times, while she was admiring her beauty in the mirror.
People say that mirror can imprison human souls, so when somebody dies we should cover mirrors. Nobody did it! Her horrible soul stayed in the mirror forever!
Elizabeth is called “Bloody Marry” in history. The legend says that if somebody says “Bloody Marry” three times in front of mirror at midnight, he can see her!
Coming back to this Halloween meeting, we didn’t believe in Selen’s words. We wanted to check them! One of us came up the mirror in the hall. When she said “Bloody Marry” once, it suddenly got colder. When she said it twice, everybody felt wind and cadaverous smell. When she said it for the third time… all candles went off ! In the darkness we heard her scream and the sound of a breaking mirror. When we went to the hall, we noticed it was empty. She was gone! On the floor we found a rose in a pool of her blood…

The ages before the birth of Christ are commonly labelled BC and those after – AD. It makes me think of the world now, and what comes to my mind is that we should introduce new acronyms to refer to our times – BF and AF. What do these stand for? Have you already guessed? Continue reading
