The Ghost of OHS

The Ghost of OHS

“Look at this new sign that was just posted,” said Makenna. Upon the wall was a sign that read, “Lights on after school! Come to the school library on Friday, October 31, at 8:00 p.m., we will have games available before we lay down for the night.” “I don’t know about that Makenna, I’ve heard rumors about a ghost that haunts the library.” I explained. “A ghost at OHS, how is that possible?” Makenna asked. The bell blurted out for school to get out. “We will have to see if  this ghost is true, so we are definitely going!” said Makenna. “Whatever you say, lets just go, I’m tired of being here.” I murmured. We left the school quietly. 
It’s October 31 and Makenna and I are at my house. We got to the school at exactly 8:00 p.m, but the doors were locked. I looked up at the sky, and noticed that there was a full moon. “Look over there!” Makenna screamed. Across the top window was six words written in red goo. “Leave now, or you will regret it!” “We have to leave!” I told Makenna. Then Mrs. Braun, the librarian, came to open the door for us. 
After all of the agonizing games, it was time to lay down. Makenna and I laid down on some of the couches in the library. At about 12:00 in the morning, Makenna woke me up. “I have to go to the bathroom, come with me!” she said. “Fine, lets go.” I agreed. As we walked into the hallway, it was like we were in some type of galaxy. Everything was dizzy and I couldn’t see. That was before I fainted. 
I woke up about an hour later, but Makenna was gone. As I looked around, I saw light coming from the stage in the gym. Walking toward it, I didn’t expect anything to be surprising. Then, I saw Makenna wrapped in spider webs, stuck in a chair! I immediately helped her get out. “Let’s get out of here!” I cried. “I still have to go to the bathroom!” Makenna said. Now we were off to the girls bathroom.
Halfway to the bathroom, I heard some sort of shattering noise. Makenna and I peeked around the corner and saw a ghost with white hair, which was in a high bun. She was wearing an aged, damaged, fuchsia dress. She was pretty tall, but very skinny. Her eyes were a dark, deep color of purple. I could smell a scent, it was horrible, like old lady perfume. “Let’s scoot!” I whispered. Makenna and I escaped through the front door and dashed to my house.
As I look back on that day, I remembered some more stuff about this ghost, named Julie. She was in her late 60s and lives in the school libraries. From other people, I have heard that she is rude, and extremely scary 
(from my own experiences too). This ghost has a deep voice, with a horrible, and mean behavior. I’ve heard that she has been caught on cameras before throwing library books at the wall, and slamming locker doors. I took a pool of students to see what this ghost’s fright factor was. If I were to have a say in it, I would vote a 10. The question is, how did Julie become a ghost? Let me put it simple, she was a book worm. She walked into the library one day to pick out a book and then bam, The whole bookcase fell on her, which caused her to suffocate. 
     If you ever come to OHS, never come on a Friday night, especially when there is a full moon.

Halloween at Hogwarts

MaKenzie


It is Harry’s first year at Hogwarts, and he doesn’t know about the surprises that a wait him. His first Halloween dinner is today, and he is excited for it. Hogwarts is all about  shocking things that causes frenzy. This Halloween should be the best one Harry has had yet.
When Harry walked into the Great Hall, it was the most astonishing thing he has ever seen. Live jack-o-lanterns were walking all around the place, trying to scare people. Black cats were jumping all around the hall. There was a giant ghost chandelier that hung among the ceiling. Witches were walking around, serving people appetizers of this type of salsa dip with witch hat chips. Through a window, Harry could see a skeleton cooking food, a skeleton chef. 
When Harry sat down at the Gryffindor table, there was food galore! Every food was a Halloween color! Sweet potatoes, bloody steak, pumpkin pie, pumpkin cheese balls, deviled chicken lollipops, sweet and sour eyeballs, worms, deviled ham eyeball sandwiches, vampire salad, and more! There was a separate table with red punch, (a vampire was serving it). The food was satisfying, most of it, who knew that there could be so much food at one place! Everyone was stuffing their faces with their plates piled with different types of food. 
After Harry and his friends ate, they had some activities that you could choose to do. Most of the activities were games. A game that you could play was rip the head off of Nearly Headless Nick. Harry was trying to help Nick, I mean, he is nearly headless and nobody wants there head completely off! Another game you could play was some scary guessing games. Most of them included golems and other creepy stuff. Either way, if you win or lose, you technically don’t win. Harry did not want to play that game, who wants to mess with a golem?
         Then Dumbledore arose and exclaimed that it was time for the students to go to their common rooms. Harry, Ron, and Hermione all walked to the Gryffindor common room together. They sat in there for a while and talked about entertaining the dinner was, but then they got tired. Harry went to bed and dreamt about the wonderful dinner he just had.

Jack and Jill Poem

Jack and Jill ascended the range,
To
obtain a container of rainwater;
Jack
shot down, and battered his crown,
And Jill
appeared descending after.
