Ethan stared wide eyed at the object coming out of the bushes.
What, Is that thing?! Ethan thought. Wait, is that a hat? And is that hair?! Hang on a minute, is that…..is that a……..
“SCARECROW!!!!! RUN FOR YOUR LIFE!!!!” Ethan screamed as he turned around and ran back towards the house.
Linda raced after him.
“Ethan, wait! This is silly!” She yelled.
As soon as Linda got into the house, Ethan slammed the door shut.
“REALLY ETHAN?!!!!!” said Linda. “You ran away from a scarecrow, a Scarecrow!“
“Well I’m not the only one who was scared! You screamed “Monster” in the first place!” said Ethan.
“That was before I saw that it was a scarecrow! Do you really think that I’m going to be scared of a piece of fabric and stuffing?!” asked Linda.
“Well that “Piece of Fabric and Stuffing” was moving on it’s own!” Ethan said.
“It was probably just one the scarecrows that Grandma set out! Like the ones that she puts on the porch!” said Linda. “And it was most likely just the wind that made it move!
“Well, how do you explain the fact that it moved from the end of the row to the middle?!” asked Ethan.
“I…..I don’t know,” said Linda. “I guess, that kinda was weird, but it couldn’t have moved own it’s own……could it?”
“Maybe,” Ethan said.
Linda opened the door.
“Oh hey Lea! Hey Tenny!” said Linda.
“Hey guys! How’s it going?” Lea asked.
“We saw a scarecrow monster!!!” Ethan yelled.
Tenny laughed. “Ethan, it was probably just one of the neighbors’s decorations.”
“But it was moving on it’s own!” said Ethan.
“Are you sure?” asked Tenny.
“Yes!!!” said Ethan.
“Oooooo,” said Lea. She glanced at Tenny.
NO! Tenny mouthed to her.
“What is it?” asked Linda.
Lea turned back to them with a sneaky looking smile on her face.
“Alright everyone, into the living room,” she said grinning.
On the way upstairs, Tenny took Lea aside.
“Really Lea?! You had to tell them?” Tenny whispered.
Lea shrugged. “Why not? It’s just a story. I mean, the worst that could happen is that they believe that it’s real.”
Tenny sighed. “That’s what I’m afraid of. You know how Ethan is with Star Wars! And he’s never even seen the Star Wars galaxy! How is he going to act about something that he actually thinks that he may have seen?” asked Tenny.
“Well, even if he does believe it I’m sure that he’ll forget about it sooner or later,” Lea said.
Tenny sighed. “I sure hope you’re right,” she said.
After they got upstairs, they all settled into the living room.
“Why are all the lights turned off?” Linda asked.
“To make what I’m about to say sound scarier,” said Lea grinning.
“Well, why are you guys using Mom’s phone as a flashlight?” asked Linda.
“Because it’s the closest thing that we have to a flashlight,” Tenny explained.
“Quiet everyone,” said Lea. “I am about to tell you a story. The story, of The Haunted Scarecrow.”
