Our students had a great time few days ago. Arroyo de la Luz high school celebrated its Halloween week. The corridors and the doors of most classrooms were decorated with posters, masks, cloths and everything useful to recreate the magic and atmosphere of Halloween. The two best groups of the decoration contest got a big breakfast and everybody got some candy after taking photographs and writing and reading some terrific micro horror stories, which were also a great success. Here we have some of my favorites…
“…We were playing on the porch when we saw that the sky was getting dark. A great storm had begun. We went into the house. A strong wind had started blowing and the windows and the doors opened and closed making a horrible noise. The water was entering everywhere. The electric light went on and off. Shadows floated across the darkness of the porch like ghosts looking for human shelter…” Nuria.
“I always like to read in quiet places, so I used to sit by a nameless grave in the local cemetery and spend hours there until the sunset. On 31st October I did the same, but when I stood up to leave I realized a name had appeared on the gravestone. It was my own”. Victoria.
“My sister died when we were little in a car accident. Every month I have a dream where she appears. I´m in a dark place, and she is in front of me. Little by little she gets closer and closer. He stares me in the eye, and while she is crying… she asks me to go with her”. Nerea.
