1. The Matchbox

Only four matches back, something after me. I need to get out now.

An afternoon was I walking around in my neighborhood. When I saw a giant factory, that I had never seen before, and I had lived here my whole life. I got curious, but at the same time was I scared. I decided to walk in and take a look at it. I had just got thru the gate, when everything suddenly got black.

I woke up in a small room. On the floor next to me were there a flash light and a matchbox. I picked up the flash light and looked around. On the wall was there written a note, it says:

“Every 15 minute will a match disappear, when the last match disappear. You will lose your mind, like everybody else in here. Watch out, watch…out, watch……out.”

I picked up the matchbox, and put it in my pocket. I walked towards the door. I grab then door knob, but I just stopped with my hand on the door knob. I was really scared. I didn’t know what’s out there, but if I don’t get out I will never get out. I twist the door knob and opened the door.

4 hours later

I’m hiding so please be quiet…(Dramatic pause)…

I think it’s gone. There was something or someone walking around, so I hide in a dark corner. I didn’t want to see what it was.

I took the matchbox out and opened it. There were only 22 of 38 back. That will say that there has gone 4 hours since I ended up in this. I closed it and put it back in my pocket. I had to go on, but after this I’m really nervous.

I was walking down a long hallway, when I took a look over my shoulder. There, not so far behind me, was a cone of light. In a hurry I got my flash light turned off and took cover in a doorway.

When, the cone of light was right in front of me. I jumped out and turned on my flashlight, so it was pointing right in the face off the person, in front of me.

It was a boy around my age with brown eyes and black hair, but what is he doing here.

“Please stop light me in the face” he said.

“Sorry” I said, and moved the flash light away from his face.

“What’s your name?” I asked.

“Jack. What’s your name?” he asked. He looked around.

“Lilly” I answered.

“What are you doing here?” he asked.

“The same as you, I guess” I answered. I found the matchbox in my pocket, and hold it up in front of him. He also reach in to his pocket, and showed me a matchbox, there looked like mine.

“How many matches have you back?” I asked. He opened it and counted them.

“18, how many have you?” he asked. I counted them.

“20” I answered. “Let’s help each other”.

4 hours later

Only four matches back, something after me. I need to get out now. That something or someone is totally a something. It has some humanity, but it doesn’t look like a human.

We turned on to a side way and there at the end was the exit sign. We run as fast as we could. I could still hear the steps behind me, it still after us.

We reach the door, and opened it. We got out just in time.
